    Mimo's USB-powered 7-inch monitor gives you a little extra working room on your desktop without the need for a dual-ouput graphics card, but is it actually useful?

    A 25" monitor for this price? There's got to be a catch…

    The life of a technology journalist is fraught with dangers. From losing your soul to corporate PRs to being crushed under the weight of obsolete products stacked around the kit cupboard; it's a tough life.

    Optoma EP728 review

    Optoma EP728 review

    8  

    The Optoma EP728 stands out from the competition because of its small size and weight. When packed in its carry case it is half the size of most rival projectors, which will be welcome news to anyone who has to take a projector on the road. Despite the small size, this is a regular DLP projector with an XGA resolution that can be resized to a widescreen image of 1400 x 1050 pixels.

    Bigger really is better. Playing games on a big screen makes everything seem more real… more involving… more absorbing. You smile more. You swear more. You actually duck and weave out of the way of oncoming fire. In fact, it's taking a huge amount of willpower to write this and not just sit slack-jawed in front of Hanns.G's new screen playing every game that comes to mind.

    ViewSonic PJ551D review

    ViewSonic PJ551D review

    6  

    ViewSonic has built its PJ551D around a 0.55-inch DLP chip that offers the same native resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels as the other projectors in this group. It lets the side down slightly as the maximum resolution can only be stretched to 1280 x 1024 pixels, rather than the widescreen 1400 x 1050 pixels that is offered by the more versatile Acer and Optoma projectors.

    Infocus IN2104 review

    6  

    InFocus takes the prize for 'heaviest contender', as its IN2104 tips the scales at 3.1kg. Its slabby looks add to the impression of a bulky projector, despite it having the same dimensions as many rival models.

    Laptop manufacturers have toyed with the idea of screens larger than 17 inches but, for the most part, if you want a larger display, the most convenient answer is not a bigger laptop but an external monitor.

    For the same wodge of cash that you’d have to lay down to buy this monitor, you could buy four Mac minis and an iPod touch.

    ViewSonic VX2255wmh review

    7  

    Of all the features to be impressed by, an exceptionally smooth rotation mechanism doesn’t, perhaps, rank very highly in terms of excitement. However, the ease with which the ViewSonic’s stand swivelled the screen around was worthy of note. In fact, the whole unit has a real feel of quality to it.

    Samsung Syncmaster 225UW review

    With a bulky bezel and glossy black finish, it wouldn’t be entirely accurate to claim that Samsung’s group test entry was understated. Although it’s by no means an unattractive unit with subtle silver touches, it does have a sizable amount of desk presence.

    Philips 200WS8 review

    6  

    Like the similarly inexpensive Iiyama, the Philips 200WS8 leans towards the functional and rather unexciting end of the scale. Unlike its rival 20-inch display, however, the Philips display doesn’t do a particularly good job of masking its low price.

    Iiyama ProLite E2003WS review

    7  

    With a simple, matte-black design, standard front-mounted menu buttons and a square plastic stand, the E2003WS is a business-like monitor that appears to be targeting the price-conscious end of the market. Indeed, like the Philips, this is something of a low-frills affair.

    HP v220 review

    6  

    Contrasting sharply with the more flashy monitors on test, HP’s entrant represents the lower end of the 22-inch market. A decidedly cheap-to-the-touch matte black and silver plastic finish means that it won’t be gracing the desks of many fashion-savvy users in the near future.

    HANNSpree XM-S Verona review

    7  

    Uniquely among the monitors on test, HANNSpree’s entrant includes an HDMI input. This makes it possible to connect an HDMI-equipped PC or games console without the need for a converter. Given the fact that even the most recent graphics cards are still sporting dual-DVI ports, the combination of HDMI and VGA inputs seems a little unwieldy for PC use.

    Zalman ZM-M220W 3D monitor review

    7  

    Since Sir Charles Wheatstone invented 3D in 1840, it is a concept that has fascinated and enthralled. However 3D has never quite rocked our worlds, until now. The Zalman 3D display is startlingly good and very addictive, so if you get one prepare to divest of at least half of your social life.
