HP L1908w

 

HP's L1908w delivers a cheap but acceptable experience for users on a tight budget who don't want to risk a "no-name" brand display.

Solid base, Acceptable image quality

No DVI port, Not great at extreme angles

WHAT'S HOT: Hewlett-Packard's 19-inch P920 rendered pleasing color and delicately detailed graphics, along with fine, clear text. The P920 can achieve a maximum resolution of 1920 by 1440 (at 70 Hz), making it ideal for viewing big documents (although...

It's undoubtedly no stunner on hardware, but the HP L1908w's specifications are palatable given the price tag. And this screen is all about that price.

Solid base ; Acceptable image quality

No DVI port ; Not great at extreme angles

There's no denying that HP's attached a price premium to the L1908w, purely because it carries a little HP badge on the side. If you want to buy a cheaper LCD, there are plenty about -- even models larger than 19-inch widescreen if you hunt around a...

With a lip-smacking price tag this 19in HP L1908w looks to be a genuine bargain. Expect it to be widely available for around £130 by the time you read this.
