The Lenovo ThinkVision L220x would make a very good monitor for both home and office use if it were not for one problem. It features a neat, modest and appealing design and excellent ergonomics. Its response time is very low, but its main advantage is the PVA matrix. While nearly every other 22-inch monitor gets dark when viewed from below or bright when viewed from above, the L220x can be easily identified by its superb viewing angles.
Besides, the ThinkVision L220x has a nonstandard resolution for its diagonal. Its native resolution of 1920x1200 should be appreciated by people working with design drawings, large photographs and any other large piece of graphical of textual information. An important fact, the L220x is considerably cheaper than similar 24-inch monitors.
Alas, there is one problem. Some samples of the ThinkVision L220x have an inherent drawback that cannot be corrected by any settings. They have low image sharpness. I tried two samples but both were no good in this respect. One sample was in fact defective. The other was better, but not absolutely free from that drawback. So if you are going to buy an L220x, you should check its sharpness out at a resolution of 1920x1200 with DVI connection. This test is no less important for this monitor than checking it out for dead pixels.
