The 22″ SCALEOVIEW Q22W-1 will be launching on August 30, 2007 according to Fujitsu Siemens. The name SCALEOVIEW is a bit lacking in professionalism, but the features of this 22″ wide LCD monitor seem to very focused on communication and entertainment. With the high-quality camera built-in (and good video chatting software) the user can easily video chat and there are microphones to boot. The DVI and HDMI inputs allow for this monitor to be used as the display for DVDs, HD-DVDs, Blu-ray disks, PS3 and about anything else that has video out. The panel is most likely a TN type with a wide viewing angle film to improve the limited viewing angle from just TN alone. At Â£299, it is very expensive and a Dell Ultrasharp 20″ wide might be a better value: even though you are losing 2″, you are not losing any screen real estate as the pixel format is identical and you get better LCD technology: S-IPS from LG.Philips LCD or PVA from Samsung.
