HP 2009m review


The HP 2009m has a street price of $180, but online costs as little as $140. The monitor includes a couple of useful ergonomic options, built in speakers, and a pleasing aesthetic. While its color reproduction leaves something to be desired and its...

The HP 2009m includes screen tilt and swivel, built in speakers, and decent movie and game performance.

The HP 2009m's low brightness keeps colors in games and movies from standing out and the ultraglossy screen is ultrareflective and sometimes prevents dark details from being seen.

The HP 2009m is a good-looking 20-inch display with enough features to make it well worth its low price.

HP 2009m


The $200 HP 2009m, an affordable 20-inch widescreen display, produced impressive image quality in our subjective tests. We saw nuanced, accurate skin tones in photographs, and found small fonts easy to read. The screen has a glossy, antireflective...

Nice image quality ; HD-ready aspect ratio

Lacks an HDMI connection

This affordable display showed impressive image quality, but lacks an HDMI connection.

Review: HP 2009m LCD


HP's 2009m is an affordable 20-inch widescreen display that produced impressive image quality in our subjective tests.

The 2009m’s 16:9 aspect ratio and 1,600-by-900 native resolution makes it appropriate for showing HD content. However, the 2009m does not have an HDMI connection—-it offers only VGA and DVI ports. The ports are set in at the back of the display; to...

HP 2009m Review and Ratings


The HP 2009m is a basic 20-inch wide-screen LCD with a very good price-versus-performance ratio, though we bemoan its lack of HDMI.

Excellent performance for the price ; Smart, if slightly dull, design

No USB or HDMI ports ; Lacks height or swivel adjustment ; Ill-placed headphone port

Fairly Decent


This monitor is fairly decent. Had mine since Dec. 2009. Six months old it got the lines of death on it. About nine months old it died on me. It's a decent choice for a monitor, but there are way better choices out there.

Pretty good size display

Height of monitor is not adjustable

Other than being out on delivery for 2 days with Brown it works very well. True 1600:900 resolution everything I run on it looks awesome. Some complain of gloss/glare I have a desk lamp right next to it and see nothing of the sort. Sits at optimal...

DOES NOT SHOW DVI-D CABLE but there was one in the box with mine so don't let this deter you from purchasing!!! So actually this was a suprising plus ; I should have bought 2

So far so good


There isn't much detail to go into when writing a monitor review, it works and the details of spec's are correct and work fine as well

The monitor has speakers which could be a bit louder but I suppose it's average as far as monitor speakers are concerned

This is the most amazing, crisp computer monitor I have ever seen. It's as if it were a 1000$ monitor but bought for only 130$. Well worth the price, and more

no cons
