I quickly set upped this monitor on a P4 1.7, 845 ge based machine (845 graphics controller), monitor detected analog input and ran at factory settings .

I watched tv through compro videomate tv gold plus 2(rf) on this monitor and I was amazed at brightness & contrast ratio at factory calibrated settings, though factory settings are not suitable for normal work like internet browsing(they would strain ur eyes toooo much) . Next I watched a 720 x 480 resolution DVD–video with nero showtime and was again amazed at contrast ratio .

Now I compare my 22” Dell E228WFP with my 19” Samsung Sync master 940BW

Both of them are tn panels. When I watched tv (a live broadcast of cricket match on tensports) on Dell E228WFP it had some sort of ghosting whereas syncmaster 940bw never had any sort of ‘noticeable’ ghosting so my conclusion here is 940bw has better RTA than dell e228wfp .In dvd movie or in any other channel I didn’t noticed any ghosting in dell monitor.


My conclusion: a bigger screen only can make tv and movies experience spectacular so dell’s e228wfp @ 19k is a clear winner there. For a 22” 1680x1050 monitor @ 19k rs dell e228wfp is unbeatable . Though color perfectionists should always stay away from any tn panel they should look for 8 bit panels. But I can conclude that this 22” tn monitor is very good for using it as a tv…...and that’s my intentions for it………………

I’m excited for getting dth for this beauty …

Any further queries are welcomed……………….

1>where do u live and from where/whom did u buy it from?
2>why did u choose this 22" lcd monitor, ie why is it better than the competition?

yeah 22" are yet to become mainstream.

sure 22"s are yet to become mainstream in India but that really doesn’t justifies their overpricing by manufactures in India .

let me tell u my personal experience…
I was looking for 22” monitor in Nehru place and went to ##(#=r) systems…I asked that half bald middle aged guy there for Samsung 226bw , he quoted 26.5k for that………oh I asked him why a 22” tn panel is priced such extraordinarily . He gave me a daunting reply, he told me that a 26” Samsung lcd tv costs 35k so a 22” Samsung monitor is justified at 26.5k……., oh my god I was shocked these people don’t even know that a 26” lcd tv is a native 8 bit panel whereas that 226bw is a damn tn panel, I shook my head and came back home
I’m worried for my poor fellow ignorant country mates!!!!!!!

better look here

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/specs.htm

TN Film is only a true 6-bit technology, but is able to offer a 16.2 million, and now even a 16.7 million, colour palette thanks to dithering and Frame Rate Control methods

slightly wrong question, TN is not comparable with 8bits but I will answer briefly.

TN is a technology for making LCD & can acheive faster pixel moment such as 2-6ms at the cost of loosing viewing angle & lesser bits.

More bits moved in lesser time will require far more resourses so they reduce the bits & the color accuracy is reduced but faster speeds are acheived.

Most 8bits panel will be expensive & wont be using TN technology, instead they use better ones such as PVA/S-IPS etc............ etc there are few more.

Finally my dad gave it up. He is sick of laptops small screen & touch pad…so he wanted a desktop now with a big screen…so another E228WFP is in the house. Finally now I would get rid of my 19” Samsung 940BW…




Details regarding purchase… Bought it from DELL India for Rs 15460/- inc. TAX & DELIVERY with 5 YRS WARRANTY. Cash sent on 7 nov by credit card & Received delivery on19 nov.
I got this discount as I’m a previous DELL customer i.e. I also bought one E228WFP back in July 07 for myself for 19k with 3 yrs warranty.
This monitor is a A02 revision whereas the other one (July 07) is A01. I cant find any difference between them till now..

yeah with compro videomate tv gold plus 2

after a hell of a pain with color adjustments with nvidia control panel i was able to get decent color i.e according to my tastes..

picture quality is quite decent somewhat like cheppo lcd tv's but i would prefer it over 29" CRT TV ANYDAY,but if u are expecting it to be a replacement for a bravia or R8 then u are grossly mistaken..

According to http://tinyurl.com/3xhayx (That's the Dell website; Tinyurl is used as the original url is a bit long) the current price of Dell E228WFP 22" WideScreen Flat Panel Monitor is Rs. 13,162. Does this include taxes and shipping?

Btw, thanks for this nice review! :)
