Dell Canada: The tilt-only SX2210 is Dell’s newest 22″ 1080p LCD monitor. The SX2210 sports a 1920×1080 pixel format and directly linked to that is the 16:9 aspect ratio for your HD viewing enjoyment. The ultra-fast 2ms response time will be good for both sports and gaming. Contrast ratio of 1000:1 is very good for a monitor. This 22-incher is probably using a TN (Twisted Nematic) LCD panel by the looks of the limited viewing angles: 170/160. That would be 170 horizontal and 160 vertical–the description on Dell’s page got it switched, but to Dell’s credit it shows the correct information in the “Tech Specs” tab. The SX2210 comes with a ton of connections: USB, VGA, DVI-D, HDMI. The color gamut is also a bit more than standard at 85% NTSC, most likely due to a WCG-CCFL.

The SX2210 is a fine-looking 22″ LCD monitor, especially given that it’s from Dell; Dell has come quite a ways. The fast response time of just 2ms will come in handy for viewing sports in HD as well as playing games. Need serious color work? The SX2210 is a mixed bag with a higher-than-average 85% NTSC color gamut but less-than-ideal viewing angles. Depending on the price the SX2210 can be a very good monitor for you as long as height-adjustment isn’t necessary.
