Envision debuts 22-inch wide LCD for Best Buy

Envision G218a1 Display

Envision on Tuesday unveiled a special computer LCD just for the North American chain retailer Best Buy. The G218a1 is geared to bringing both a large screen and audio to a price level previously impractical for lower-cost PCs. Underneath the 22-inch display are two 3-watt speakers that provide clear stereo sound for those without the budget or space for dedicated sound systems. The DVI port also claims HDCP encryption and would be an ideal match for home theater PCs, Blu-Ray players, and HDTV devices that will output protected video, Envision says. VGA input accommodates analog sources.

Much in line with other 22-inch LCDs, the G218a1 provides a 1680x1050 resolution with a 700:1 contrast ratio and a 5ms pixel response time friendly to action movies and games. The display works with any Mac or PC with relevant video output and sells in black at Best Buy for $280, reportedly less than most other displays in the class.

    Has anyone had or currently have Envision monitors? How they compare to others?

    Likely fine

    Envision's a budget brand, but the panel's the same as most any other 22-inch you can find on the market outside of the high-end.
