HP L1908W


The large-screen HP L1908w 19-inch LCD Monitor offers essential performance features in an elegant 19-inch diagonal wide-aspect display designed for users who prefer widescreen viewing, wherever they work. Get crisp, clear, high resolution views of...

19IN/18V 24mm 1280x1024 85hz P920 Diamondtron Monitor


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...

HP L1908w Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 - Retail


works great on my dell



Consumer review by:



Good brand backs the preety decent screen. I needed a reliable widescreen LCD not bigger than 19" and with D-SUB (15-pin VGA) input. This model was just right for me, with no extras.

Good picture quality, compact size (19"), stable support, power indicator LED can be switched off by going into the menu (these can be disturbing)

D-SUB connector only (no DVI or HDMI), viewing angles (up and down) seem not to be as high as described

Excellent Monitor


They have more of a matte like finish on the screen, rather than the hard glossy screens you see on laptop LCD display. Because I've only used these at work, I haven't really had a chance to try games or movies on them and can't comment on whether...

This is an excellent monitor. I work in IT for a very large corporation, and this monitor is our corporate standard for the company. I have two of these on my desk (it's easier to program when you have a dual screen setup), and they are very sharp,...

None that I know of

Great buy


Monitor came fast and without a single dead/stuck pixel. Everything worked as expected and the price was right

Can't swivel, but you should already know that

PCNation is the first place I look when making this type purchase.

Exceptional pricing

Best quality monitor for the price


Also, Newegg might want to do away with the whole rebate thing since we all know how those can get complicated and brands may simply deny you for no reason. I've noticed other places selling this monitor new without the rebate hassle for about the same...

This is a fantastic monitor and cheaper alternative to HP's larger more expensive monitors. I'm not the type that wants a 22 inch widescreen tv on my desk so I went for this one ; No dead pixels, everything is perfect with this monitor. It's great to...

No height adjustability...that's a pretty big one. It's not really a deal breaker for me but for some people it might be

HP L1908w 19in monitor


Looking at some of the seemingly ridiculous sub-$300 price tags attached to 22in monitors, it's obvious that larger screens are quickly becoming avail...

Rugged design

Doesn't have a digital DVI connector -- only RGB is included, poor viewing angles

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.
