The Dell ST2220L looks pretty OK, but it performs like a pro. It’s a full HD LED monitor, and it looks like they’ve put in a lot of work into it. Read more to find out what you’re putting your money into.

The Dell ST2220L

Design and Features
The Dell ST2220L isn’t the slimmest monitor. It isn’t even that great to look at, in fact, it looks pretty ordinary. It took me just a couple of minutes to set up the screen, and I was ready to start looking at it closer. The adjustable stand is pretty solid and holds the screen up pretty well. Unfortunately, the stand only allows you to tilt the screen 4° forward and 21° backward, and not sideways. Tough break, but I can live with it.

The monitor has a jet-black border that’s a little over an inch thick around the sides and the top. However, at the bottom, it is a little thicker and it has an additional matte finish silver border. The touch sensitive menu controls are situated at the right and the features in the menu are pretty standard, but navigating through it can take a little getting used to. It looks really easy, but then you realise it’s not that simple when you press the wrong buttons at times. All I’m saying is that it takes a little getting used to.

Tiltable Screen

Another thing that didn’t make me smile a lot was the layout for the inputs at the back, which are placed as if the manufacturer is trying to test your patience to see how badly you want to watch stuff on this monitor. All I’m saying is that they could’ve made it a little more accessible. Anyway, the inputs are pretty standard. It has HDMI (for the win!), DVI, VGA, and two 3.5 mm plugs for audio input and output.

Nice input options

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to add that they haven’t bothered to bundle an HDMI cable with the monitor. They have given a standard VGA cable with a DVI converter though. Little cheap if you ask me.
