The worst typical contrast ratio amongst comparable types of PC display is 600:1.
The average width of new medium monitors is 590mm, and the widths range from 370mm to 960mm. The ProDisplay P222va is quite narrow (only 518 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the ProDisplay P222va.
Other PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the DELL P2314H (£131.18) (545.8mm).
Medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the ProDisplay P222va have weights of between 2.6g and 33kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the ProDisplay P222va is quite light compared to most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ProDisplay P222va.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were released in the last year, the HP ProDisplay P222va does not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider including the Lenovo X1 (£42.79) which also has a higher rating.
Not 3D Compatible
The ProDisplay P222va is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Asus PG278Q (£516.97) which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The ProDisplay P222va does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDisplay P222va also do not have an integrated card reader.
