HP 2159m

 

Now that widescreen desktop displays are making the transition to the 16:9 aspect ratio, it should come as no surprise that monitor vendors are now offering full high definition capabilities on their smaller models. Enter the HP 2150m ($239.99 direct),...

Good color quality. Hi-res screen. Sharp text reproduction. Three video inputs

Backlight seepage. Some tinting. Weak grayscale performance. No USB ports

The HP 2159m is capable of displaying HD content in its native format and does a very good job of reproducing small fonts, but it has some minor backlighting and tinting issues.

HP 2159m 1080p Display

 

The Hp 2159m Display has full 1080p HD with Hdmi, Dvi-d, VGA and audio port. It also has built in speakers that are no visable, it has a glossy (with BrightView technology) 21.5” screen that is great for movies and all your day to day tasks. 5ms...

Fantastic! This monitor surpassed all my expectations.

 

I hooked this monitor up out of the box, using the DVI input, without even using the installation CD, changed my resolution to recommended 1920 by 1080 at 60Hz and presto, the most incredible picture I've seen on a monitor. The color setting by...

Brightness and contrast are incredible, sharpness and details I never saw, yet very smooth rendering and action

My only quirk with this monitor is the bright aqua blue power button, I think I darker, deeper blue would have been more appropiate

Fantastic monitor for great price!!

 

This is by far the best computer monitor I've owned. While I am not a hardcore gamer, I do Web design and Flash production, so I need a quality monitor. The colors are rich and deep and, combined with a decent graphics card (I upgraded that, too) I...

Awesome design. HP has continued to master the look and feel of their products. Outstanding picture and color quality. High-definition capable. Already assembled, just plug it in. Unbelievably low price for this quality and size monitor

Has great tilt and rotate features, but less of an up-down adjustment than my past HP flat-panel. While I could put something under it, I simply lower my office chair an inch or two

Excellent Monitor

 

I recently decided to buy a second monitor to go along with my HP w1707 and I was also trying to decide between the w2207h and the 2159m. I shopped around for a while at various local stores and this one was by far the best in its class for ... Expand...

One of HP's best. The 2159m stands out above the rest based on image quality, brightness, contrast, clarity, sharpness, and style. Great Monitor

Like with other HP monitors some might find that the glossy finish makes for harder viewing under direct sunlight
