Default ASUS VW222 22-inch Wide-Screen

The display market is chalked-full of models that fill up the quality spectrum, from sub-par up to high-end. The VW222 falls into the sub-par category, sadly, with overall poor color representation and noticeable screen-door effects, resulting in a model that should not be considered for purchase.

You can read Matt's full review here and discuss it here!

I diidnt see a price range, so maybe it's just a starter monitor.
Truly Asus is a name in the market that most people would consider their products over others. Could it be the trend is changing from quality monitors to anything that will produce light and colors?

It retails for around $300, when you can find it in stock anywhere.

Still plenty of good cheap displays out there on the market, sounds like Asus tried to cut to many corners on this one to save a penny............

We added an addendum in the article because ASUS strongly believes we received a defective unit. In truth, we should not have published the article until we spoke to them first, so we were wrong there.

Matt is receiving a new monitor this week and will follow-up with his thoughts shortly after.
