At over £175 including VAT, the Asus VK222H on the expensive side for a 22-inch widescreen monitor if you don’t factor in things like the webcam and HDMI port. However, when you do, it’s a reasonably priced HDMI-equipped 22-inch monitor with a webcam thrown in for kicks. If the webcam isn't on your list of requirements, there are cheaper 22-inchers with HDMI on the market but they don't appear to be as stylish as the VK222H's unassuming lines.
Having said that, the monitor's looks aren't going to give us reason to gloss over the poor image quality because, if you’ve got this far, you’ll realise that we don’t really like the Asus VK222H a great deal – our experience with it was one that involved a lot of patience and frustration because every time we thought we’d fixed some image quality blemishes, more would show up elsewhere. The TN panel in the VK222H is mediocre at best and we witnessed incredibly poor viewing angles for a modern panel without even trying hard to expose them.
