HP LA2405wg

 

The HP LA2405wg is one of seven entries in HP's Advantage line of business displays designed for viewing comfort and manufactured using environment-friendly materials. Priced at $379 (direct), this 24-inch monitor is a bit more expensive than other...

Flexible, ergonomic stand. Stylish design. Good color and text performance

Pricey. Weak light grayscale performance. No HDMI port

The HP LA2405wg is a versatile 24-inch LCD monitor that delivers good overall performance and offers a handful of useful features. However, this relatively pricey model has trouble displaying some shades of light gray and lacks an HDMI port.

HP Compaq LA2205wg LCD monitor

 

HP's Compaq LA2205wg is a relatively straightforward 22in LCD monitor, but its brushed aluminium highlights make it look like a premium product. Its f...

Attractive design; good build quality; swivelling, tilting and height-adjustable screen; straightforward and easy to use on-screen display; respectable performance

Distortion on the screen when bezel is pushed; deep-set panel reflects on edge of bezel; no HDMI; below average viewing angles

It's not perfect, but if you're looking for a basic work monitor the HP Compaq LA2205 will be hard to pass up for its flexible stand alone -- as long as you can find it cheaper than the slightly inflated RRP.

HP Compaq LA2205wg review

 

With a brushed aluminium frame, the HP Compaq LA2205wg certainly doesn't look like a run-of-the-mill monitor. It has a stylish, professional look and the matte black sides and rear complement the overall aesthetic. Pushing on the edge of the bezel...

HP Compaq LA2205wg

 

Despite a few build and design issues, HP's latest 22-inch monitor punches above its weight and is perfect for users looking for a budget, widescreen solution that is both versatile and sturdy.

Solid performance, Good adjustability through sturdy stand

Build quality issues in the frame, Inset panel causes reflections, Backlight bleed around the edges, Video playback leaves a bit to be desired

Despite a few build and design issues, HP's latest 22-inch monitor punches above its weight and is perfect for users looking for a budget, widescreen solution that is both versatile and sturdy.

Horrible display - stay away

 

Stay away from this model!! Very blurry even with DVI connection, and no matter which setting you'd use.

Superb ergonomics, excellent in every way. Moves up/down/rotate/angle view back and forth

Very blurry, even when connected to latest nVidia or ATI via DVI connector ; Sharpness adjustment range from 1 to 5, no matter what setting, text is very blurry in every setting ; Optimal view angle is never to be found, very sensitive neat spot with...

Refurbished HP LA2205wg

 

you always take a chance on refurbished. if you are not good at fixing minor issues I would not. I am so it worked for me.

Nice Monitor for the Price

Refurbished is hardly a word I would use, the buttons have minor damage around the on/off button. I had to fix this myself. Beware of this seller

Excellent product for an outstanding price

 

I purchased two monitors (business power user) and I am very happy with them. One of the monitors arrived with some cosmetic damage and PC Connection made teh exchange easy and quick - no hassles. I would recommend the vendor and the product to anyone.

image quality, easy to setup, Stylish Design

Very Nice Monitor!

 

I purchased three of these and none had any dead or stuck pixels. I was a little hesitant to purchase this monitor because it was a little more pricey when compared to other TN panels, but I wanted the 1920x1200 resolution and didn't want to pay for an...

I just upgraded to this monitor from an Asus VH236H. The Asus is supposed to be one of the fastest monitors out there yet this keeps up equally as fast when running them side by side playing BF3 in 1920x1080 (yes, the HP is 1920x1200) ; The color on...

If I must list a con, it would be be the viewing angle. With that said, I would give the viewing angle an 8.5 out of 10 when compared to all monitor technologies and a 10 out of 10 for a TN panel

Whining Monitor

 

Given the poor quality of the electronics powering an otherwise nice display. I would not recommend this monitor for anyplace other than an extremely noisy environment where the whining noise would not be noticed. Expect failure. HP should be ashamed...

The monitor displays well. Contrast is good

Some monitors had a loud and very annoying whine right out of the box. All others developed an increasingly loud whine over a few months of usage. There's probably a cheap transformer (Made in China, of course) that wasn't wound properly. It's probably...
