HP Compaq Q2159


Easy set up. Nice large screen, good for gaming.

Volume control at the side are a bit awkward and inconvenient and too difficult for kids. However if you have a keyboard with speaker control than this will not be a problem. Internal speakers good and keeps your desk uncluttered but if you listen to...

HP Compaq Q2159


Has a lovely clear big screen. Great for watching movies.

It's almost too big for my computer station. The sound from the speakers is ok but could be better. The sound on my last HP monitor was better and they are made by the same people!!

Easy to install, even for a non-techy like me. I rarely play music or download films, but the picture and sound quality seem good enough. Overall good value for money.

A little wider than I expected, but the dimentions are given!! The on/off button is at the side, so it is not easily accessible in the unit I have it in, also there is no sound control knob, sound has to be regulated on screen, not a huge problem though.

Nice looking unit. Good image quality. Easy to install and setup is a doddle.

Wide screen can distort images a little, but that will be common on all wide screen devices.

Fantastic value for money, simple set up just plug and go really. Ideal for watching catch up programs or films on line.

Being a cheaper product the quality of the picture is not as sharp as a more expensive product so if you are a gamer i wouldn't buy this product but for general everyday surfing etc you can't go wrong.

HP Compaq Q2159


Very easy to assemble. Brilliant picture. Excellent value for money

The only thing that lets it down is the poor sound quality. Have had to buy separate speakers.
