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.

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...

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...

Very nice monitors!


I was a little gunshy about spending double the cost to go from a 1920x1080 to a 1920x1200, but I'm so glad that I spent the extra. These monitors are great, I have plenty of space to work and those extra pixels are great for video editing. The height...

Great for workstation use


I'm a software developer. I found that a monitor with 1920x1200 resolution would work best for my use where multiple windows are always opened at the same time. The "1080p" monitors don't quite cut it in terms of the screen fonts given the same monitor...

It's like the pixels are painted on! Sick!


My 10-year-old 1600 x 1200 CRT monitor grew blurry, and I do a lot of CAD work so this wasn't acceptable. There area scads of 1920 x 1080 monitors out there dirt cheap, but I wasn't willing to sacrifice the extra vertical resolution. For $300 this one...
