Lenovo ThinkVision L220x

lenovo_thinkvision_l220w_hd_monitor_2.jpgLenovo has recently announced a new monitor that will probably make almost everyone drool due to its beauty and impressive specifications. For someone like myself who owns a 15″ LG Flatron LCD screen, the new ThinkVision from Lenovo is on the top of my to-buy-on-Christmas list.

Anyhow, the codename for the display is ThinkVision L220x, and as the name suggests the screen measures 22″. An upgrade of 7″ when compared to my monitor, but that is another story. One good point is the built-in USB hub that most displays come with these days – this one has 4 USB ports so you can have a couple of gadgets working simultaneously.

The ThinkVision L220x is HD-ready for you to enjoy high quality content, it has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 and a 10:10 aspect ratio, which according to SlashGear is big “enough to put two full-size pages side by side “. Decent enough for you? If not, maybe the 103 dots per inch will convince you.

As for other details on screen performance, the L220x has a response time of 6 milliseconds, a brightness of 300 cd/m2, and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. Its type is WUXGA, also known as Widescreen Ultra eXtended Graphics Array and has 92% of color gamut.

In the design department, the display screen features useful functions such as stand tilt, swivel, lift, or pivot – so you can adjust to the best position possible. The power and USB cables measure 3 meters in length each.

Price: $550
