ViewSonic TD2220 Review
If you are looking for a touchscreen monitor that can work on both PC and Mac platforms, then you need to consider the ViewSonic TD2220.
This touchscreen monitor can be classified as average with a number of features designed to give you impressive video playback. This monitor doesn’t boast of the latest modern features so if you are looking for something to impress your friends, this is not the monitor to get. However, it will work just fine if you are looking for a touchscreen monitor for your day to day use. The ViewSonic TD2220 comes with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, which is acceptable for a touchscreen monitor. With a horizontal viewing angle of 170 degrees and a 160 degree vertical viewing angle, this monitor can still be used when a fairly large group of people would like to watch the same video.
One thing that most users of the ViewSonic TD2220 will not like is the fact that it is not as bright as most of the other common touchscreen monitors. However, it is still bright enough for indoor use and if you look at the brighter side of things, this helps you reduce eye fatigue that is caused by using too bright screens. Another downside of this monitor is the thick bezel that is found around the display. This bezel could give you some trouble when trying to reach the edges and the corners for edge gestures in Windows 8. If you like using a stylus on touchscreen displays, you will notice that the ViewSonic TD2220 isn’t sold with a stylus.
However, this is not a major limitation because you can purchase one separately and still use it on the monitor. The optical touchscreen is the most impressive feature about the ViewSonic TD2220. With a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a response time of 5ms, users will be happy when using touch gestures. Being an optical touchscreen, you can use it with a gloved hand, a stylus or even your bare fingers. It supports multi-touch hence it is possible to carry out commands that need the use of more than one finger like zooming or rotating images. The ViewSonic TD2220 comes with a 21.5 inch screen and weighs 14.22lbs.
The monitor alone is 2.61 inches thick though the thickness increases to 9.45 when you add the stand. This stand can be removed to enable the monitor to be mounted on the wall. Before switching to Eco mode configuration, the ViewSonic TD2220 power consumption is rated at 26 watts. When you switch to Eco mode, this becomes even better. When in Eco mode, you will be reducing eye fatigue, saving on power and at the same time lengthening the life of your monitor’s lamp.
When standing on the stand, you can turn the screen to lean forward by 5 degrees or 20 degrees backwards to ensure that you get the best viewing angle. In summary, the ViewSonic TD2220 is a worthy investment if you are looking for a touchscreen monitor to use for a long time. With HD playback and a brightness that won’t cause eye problems, users of the ViewSonic TD2220 will have the last laugh.
