Pros & Cons 
Wrapping It Up




The hunt for the perfect display is never-ending. Many LCD displays have made tall claims as to being the quintessential monitor, the archetype for all LCDs to emulate in the future. The Dell 2209WA is certainly not the perfect monitor. Indeed, it would not come close to such an epithet. What the monitor does do quite well however, is provide an excellent performance for the price it is offered at. In a market saturated with cheap TN panels with mediocre image quality, the 2209WA provides a superior and cost-effective alternative. The 2209WA sure has a lot going for it; the image fidelity and great viewing angles exhibited by the monitor, coupled with good design and slick looks would definitely put it several notches above TN panels in the same price range.

The 22 incher follows on the heels of the highly successful BenQ E2200HD, which is a 21.5” full HD TN panel monitor. This monitor is a fair bit cheaper than the 2209WA, and the 1080p sticker might be enough to fool most people into thinking that they are buying a superior display. The 2209WA’s closest competitors, however, are Dell’s own S2409W and the BenQ E2400HD. These are both 24” TN panel monitors, are priced about the same (or slightly less) and also carry the 1080p sticker. Keep in mind that these displays can come nowhere close to duplicating the image quality on the 22” eIPS panel monitor. As such, even this reviewer had initially been seduced by the "full HD" experience, which is just hogwash (again, refer to Free Radical's article to know why). Indeed, the reviewer was on the verge of buying a 24” TN panel monitor and deluding himself into thinking that it was the greatest invention since sliced bread. Having said that, would I recommend this monitor to anyone on the lookout for a bigger screen to edit images, watch HD movies and play computer games with? Undoubtedly yes. The larger screen real estate you get with a 24" TN display pales in comparison to the amazing colors and awesome viewing angles that you get with this monitor. This monitor is pretty much the best 22 incher you can get today. It is probably a little pricey for people (at least here in India), but given an option between a bigger TN panel display and this eIPS monitor, the choice should be pretty obvious.
