HP W2408

 

It's easy to be seduced by the sheer size of a 24-inch LCD screen—any display that big just looks like it means business. And there was a time when large LCD panels were almost exclusively high-performance parts. That's no longer the case. As the...

Chic design; plenty of ergonomic adjustments and user controls; tons of USB and video ports; HDCP

Glare-y screen; some greyscale banding and color-tracking problems

But despite all the features in its favor, the w2408’s performance failed to win us over. The glossy 1920x1200 screen really enhances movies and games, and we didn’t notice visual anomalies in either circumstance, but a couple issues reared their heads...

The HP w2408h is an excellent monitor that's suited to graphics or gaming, but it has its flaws and competitors offer more for your money.

Excellent colour, Great image quality, Portrait mode

Some minor design issues, Light leakage, Text quality

HP w2408

 

The computer monitor or HDTV you pick says a lot about you. If you're a Web designer, you'll need plenty of screen real estate to do your job, so a 22-inch or larger LCD monitor is a necessity. A sports nut wants to feel like part of the game, so he'll...

Good overall image quality. Very good horizontal viewing angle performance. Highly adjustable stand

Has trouble reproducing the brightest and darkest shades of gray. Lacks additional A/V ports. Vertical viewing angle is weak

The HP w2408, the latest addition to the company's sleek new line of consumer displays, delivers robust colors, a snazzy design, and a bevy of user-friendly features. But it could use a few more A/V connections, and it suffers from a narrow...

In a long series of newly designed LCD monitors, HP recently unveiled their latest addition – the w2408 24″ BrightView LCD display. The budget-friendly w2408 is geared toward the consumer market, however it is equally suitable for many non-extensive...

Very competitive price; produces rich colors; 5ms response rate; good cable management

Inadequate speakers; viewing angles can affect on-screen colors; large footprint

The w2408 is a gorgeous LCD screen that has impressive specs, an attractive design and very pleasing performance for most users.

HP W2408h

 

The $460 HP w2408h True Color Widescreen is a moderately priced 24-inch monitor with performance nearly comparable to our top-tier 24-inch model, the $689 Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP . Still, this monitor lacks a few of the features that would let it...

Stylish design; great movies and games performance; includes useful ambient light sensor.

No DVI port; no DVI-to-HDMI cable; color not as accurate as some competitors; poor speaker placement and quality; no screen rotation

The HP w2408h True Color Widescreen is a well-priced 24-inch monitor that looks stylish and performs well. Its lack of a DVI port is its only major stumbling block.

HP w2408h Monitor Review - A Top 24" Monitor with a Great Price Tag

 

The HP w2408h is one of the most cost effective monitors of 2008. But with such a fantastic price tag, can it deliver the same stunning visual performance as the 24" Dell UltraSharp or LG Flatron, and as such, can it break into the class of 'best...

Doesn't quite justify its cost but it's a must-have for those that are particular about colour accuracy.

HP W2408H 24-Inch Monitor

 

HP's latest 24-inch monitor, the W2408H, stands out from the crowd with a versatile stand that allows both height and swivel adjustments, and the monitor screen can be rotated 90 degrees to switch between landscape (widescreen) and portrait...

The HP's overly vivid color palette will impress some and disappoint others. But, the set's gray scale (white point) is actually fairly good, maintaining a mostly neutral color temperature from the darkest grays all the way up to peak white. The...

Hewlett-Packard w2408 monitor Review and Prices

 

The Hewlett-Packard w2408 is an attractive 24-inch widescreen LCD display that uses a glossy screen to produce eye-popping images.

Fast response time, vivid colors and rich blacks, fully adjustable stand

Glossy panel is subject to reflections, limited video inputs, limited viewing angle

Expert review by:

HP w2408h (HDMI) LCD Monitor

 

The HP w2408 delivers great color rendition and image definition, and the monitor should fit most desks without a diet plan. Competing monitors will give you more inputs, but you'll end up paying about a third more for the privilege.

Fully articulated arm makes monitor adjustment a snap; simplified OSD controls; integrated speakers

Glossy panel is problematic under some lighting conditions; warranty only one year

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
