I could sit here and pontificate about the VX2263 all day long, but I don't think you want that. Rather, I bet you're looking to get the bottom line, so I'll save you from reading the rest: This display is an excellent candidate if you're looking for something this size and aren't a hardcore gamer. It looks great, works well, and has a very sharp image.
It's not exactly filled with frills, though it does come with some nice additions such as MHL, flicker-free tech, and low blue light options. I especially like the slim bezels and edge-to-edge glass. Call me a sucker, but I run a two or three monitor setup constantly, and couldn't live with fewer than two monitors.
The anti-glare coating works quite well, removing pretty much all reflections and glare from the display, making it a pleasure to look at. Pictures, movies, and the like look great. Even games look great, but if you're in a fast-paced game, a higher refresh rate and response time would be advantageous.
The display can be had for around $150, and at that price, it's a pretty good buy. I'd like to see it a bit closer to $125, but $150 is reasonable. I'd also really like to see a DVI port in addition to, or instead of, the VGA port.
The MHL, for me, at least, is take it or leave it, and I would just as rather leave it. The power consumption and brightness are great and adequate, respectively, and running this display won't cost an arm and a leg.
In the end, the ViewSonic VX2263Smhl is a good monitor at a good price and should be on your list of potential displays, should you be looking for a 22-inch class display for a non-hardcore gamer.
