As a lectern
The screen is almost entirely flat in the front. At the bottom there's the grill for the built-in speakers. On the right ASUS put an on/off switch, and on our test model a Blu-ray player. More affordable versions have a DVD burner.
Our test model came with a Blu-ray player, most versions have a DVD burner.
On the left there are two USB 3.0 ports, two audio jacks and a memory card reader. The base lets you position the screen vertically or lean it back. Vertical is great for traditional work, while the slanted position is very nice when you're using touch software. When you tilt the screen the base also moves a bit.
You can tilt the ET2220.
ASUS put a mode and a menu button on the side, which are useful for when you want to use the ET2220 as monitor. You can connect it to your laptop as second monitor, or use it as the screen for a digital TV receiver or gaming console. The touchscreen has 10 touch points and works well, and the TN panel used in the monitor is of high quality. Due to time constraints we were not able to perform the usual screen measurements we traditionally do when testing monitors.
