On paper the HP 22CWA monitor looks like a great all-round PC display, something for all the family to use. There’s nothing in those specs making us go ‘ugh!’, yet neither are we going ‘wow!’. Let’s see what everyone else is saying about this run-of-the-mill yet great value monitor.

Amazon – 4.5 out of 5

Admittedly there were some horror stories in 1 and 2 star customer reviews on Amazon, but 75% of reviewers gave the monitor 5 stars. As usual the old saying applies here, in that you get what you pay for. Whilst the HP 22CWA monitor is great value at US$100 don’t be surprised if you end up with something dodgy. Our advice would be to spend a few more dollars and get something with better reviews, but if US$100 is absolutely your top dollar then shop no further! The HP 22CWA PC monitor gets neither a thumbs up or down from the Our Picks crew.
