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

 

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

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...

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...

Great for price

 

For $75 shipped I have no complaints. Its only 1680x1050 but its a 22" wide screen monitor that displays great and all buttons work and no apparent damage to the bezel like some users have stated.

I bought 2 of these monitors. Got one with some reservation but after using it I was surprised at how good it looked and how well it performed. Paid $75 and it was well worth that price. They come with a power cable and a VGA to VGA cable

The first one had some lines running down the screen and it was very annoying and I almost sent it back. Then I tried a DVI to VGA cable I had lying around and it fixed the problem. I'm not sure if its the cable or my GPU but it was fixed by changing...

not impressed with refurb

 

The second refurbished monitor I received has a functioning power button. The bezel was damaged around the buttons but all appeared to work properly

The first refurbished monitor I received had a broken power button. The RMA process was straightforward, although the queue was almost an hour. This particular monitor has a base that clicks into place and no instructions on how to fold it again. This...
