They liked its low input lag and Full HD resolution, which provides clear text. However, they were disappointed by its ergonomically limited stand and slow response time. The display also proved to have a low contrast ratio.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Dell E2220H received mixed reviews from experts, and they could only recommend it for limited office use. Testers at Choice were happy with this monitor’s Full HD resolution, and they hailed its good text quality. Check out the Dell C1422H if you need a portable Full HD model. In part because of the low 8.8 ms input lag, analysts at Tech Review Ninja recommend it for slow-paced games. The image quality was described as okay during their experiments, although reviewers noticed that the colors shift rapidly when the screen is viewed from the sides. However, editors were disappointed by its slow 12.3 ms rise-and-fall response time, which resulted in visible trails behind moving objects. Users seeking a more gaming-tailored device can explore our Dell S2421H review. This has a decent color gamut, featuring a 74.7% of the Adobe RGB color space. They were disappointed that it doesn’t have HDMI ports. Finally, reviewers were unimpressed by its low 1004:1 contrast ratio, which resulted in poor performance in dark rooms.
