Viewsonic VX2260wm review

Full HD crammed into a 22inch screen, and it looks very good indeed

  • £200

Our Verdict

With a performance as attractive as its pricetag, this is a great hi-def monitor


  • Full HD resolution. Great price. Sleek styling


  • Weak speakers

ViewSonic describes the VX2260wm as a 22-inch display, but it has a true size of 21.5-inches or 54.6cm.

This is the smallest display we've seen with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is territory that has previously been reserved for 24-inch displays.

That's 17.5 per cent more pixels than a 1680 x 1050 display and they have been fitted in by stretching the screen to such an extent the ViewSonic makes the other widescreen displays look positively square.

This increase in resolution means you can use the VX2260wm to watch full HDTV with a 16:9 aspect ratio, provided you have an appropriate media source.
