HP 2311x review: HP 2311x

 

When considering a new purchase, the importance of price can't be understated. Just attaching a low sticker price to a product can make something not even on your radar suddenly become a must-have. If, like me, you were a Steam customer during the...

The HP 2311x includes the trifecta of connection options, all placed in an easily accessible spot. Don't expect world-beating performance, but for $230 it's quite good and even more impressive currently from Amazon.com for $180.

The monitor has no ergonomic support beyond tilt, its Movie and Gaming presets are too dark, and it has a plastic-feeling build quality. Some audio options would have been useful.

The HP 2311x is a great monitor deal, with good performance and a great assortment of connections for its price.

I really like this monitor, beautiful screen in HD.

 

I love the color, the clarity of 1080 HD. After almost 2 years with it, still no issues. I picked this up at Best Buy and they price matched the sale on the HP website at $149.00! Very happy with this monitor, internet, DVD's and games all look fantastic.

beautiful screen in full 1080 HD, works great.

"One out of 2 failed after 10 months"

 

I purchased two of these monitors on a Black Friday sale, and used them simultaneously. One decided to sporatically turn on and off, once it reached a normal operating temperature. Because I threw it in a box during moving and didn't get around to...

Inexpensive, Decent.

Lack of customer service, Poor longevity

A beautiful replacement/upgrade from an HP w2207

 

This was a replacement for our older HP w2207, so with the HP 2311x, we did get a slightly larger screen. It is part of the main computer hook-up in our home office, so it's primary use is for text, along with some photo archiving. It more than meets...

Thin; glossy finish; very easy set up; perpendicular inputs very nice a comparative hassle with the parallel ones on the old HP w2207); worked as advertised right out of the box; great price point value; another winner for HP!

Miss the vertical adjustment as on the HP w2207

I love this screen

 

thumbs up, and you wouldn't regret to get it, its an HP after all :)

- Low price - terrific bright resolution - looking so cool with a very nice slim design - easy optioned manual and connects up to 3 devices

- no speakers - menu control is not that cool (expected to be touch)

DOn't buy if you use HDMI input

 

see cons. Don't buy if you use HDMI.

good price

There is a design flaw in this monitor. It doesn't recognzie HDMI input automatically. you have to manually choose it via the on-screen menu EVERY time you turn it on, as it defaults back to VGA. HP support was of no help.

Amazing monitor

 

I'd like to buy one or two more to complete my multi-display setup but I am really sad they discontinued it. I either have to buy a monitor that won't match my current ones (two 2311x) or sell my two that I have to buy a whole new set.

1. Amazing monitor for the price ; 2. I've never had any problems with it; I don't understand why a lot of the reviewers do ; 3. HDMI works perfectly for me; as do the other cables if needed

1. It's discontinued
