It’s helped along by speakers that somewhat justify their frontal positioning. I’ve yet to hear integrated 22in monitor speakers that beat any reasonable pair of discrete units. That said, although bass is tinny at best and nonexistent at worst, these speakers go loud without too much distortion and treble is fairly well-defined with some nice depth.

When it comes to monitor use and overall image quality, the BlueH actually performed far better than expected. Though vertical viewing angles are nothing special, horizontal ones are impressive for a TN. The display distinguished quite well between various dark grey tones, with no sign of dithering on close inspection. Backlight was also mostly even, though there is some noticeable bleed from the bottom. Finally, after a bit of correction to balance some red dominance, colours were passably good. The only thing marring what is a surprising performance given this display’s price and intended market, is strong banding across both colours and greyscales.

A quick aside: Samsung’s new T HD-series of TV monitors (we’ve reviewed the non-hybrid Samsung T200 here), like the 22in T220 HD, offer far superior design and three digital inputs (two HDMI and one DVI) for only around £40 more. Of course we can’t recommend them until we’ve run one through the TR gauntlet, but it’s something to keep in mind.


”’Verdict”’


It’s not overly attractive, only offers a single digital input, sports an occasionally awkward OSD and a huge remote, but the BlueH HM22D LCD TV Monitor is a decent enough bit of kit for the money. If you’re on a budget and looking for a monitor that can handle casual TV viewing while letting you work and play on your PC, this hybrid’s worth a look.
