HP L1906

 

HP's L1906 business monitor costs a mere $329, so it would definitely be tempting if cost were a main concern. But shop around. This model's mediocre image quality and near-total lack of features make it difficult to recommend.

Low price

So-so image quality Sparse features

Like most corporate monitors, the L1906 doesn't bother with many features. Although its OSD has a nice gray-and-black appearance, it offers only basic screen controls. The sole physical adjustment, tilt function, moves smoothly but stiffly. The L1906...

The HP L1906's built-in handle, simple setup, and asset-monitoring function aim to please corporate IS departments and facility managers. But this 19-inch LCD may also appeal to home-office users looking for a frills-free display with acceptable image...

Easy to set up and use; good image quality; easy-to-navigate onscreen menu.

I just bought 2 of these HP 19" monitors to set up a dual monitor system in my office. They worked perfectly right after I plugged them in and turned them on. For the price and the rebate you cannot go wrong. I definitely recommend this monitor.

This nicely priced 19-inch LCD from a reputable manufacturer is a good choice for home use. With a larger screen, text is easier to read, and movies and games are more immersive. The HPL1906 has the excellent features and ergonomics as those smaller HP...

Moderately priced; decent design; easy-to-use

A little bit heavy

A good buy, took a little time setting display to eliminate shaking, disregarded auto-cofiguring. Overall, great screen, good character resolution in documents and great color for photos. Worth the money.

excellent color, good resolution
