HP S2031

 

An inflexible model, but with good overall performance.

Inexpensive.; Great contrast ratio

Very limited connectivity.; Poor viewing angle

If you’re looking for a monitor with good performance that’s low-maintenance and cheap, the HP S2031 is perfectly suited to that end.Read More...

Still kicking in 2014

no HDMI, but I knew I didn't need it, so that's not going to affect the egg rating

Nice Little Monitor

 

I got just what I wanted a good quality small low cost monitor. I am sure most people would like HDMI input and HD picture, this isn't that monitor. I am putting it with a old computer to give away, so I didn't want to spend much. It is a good monitor...

Great Business LED Monitor

 

I Have an older business computer with no graphics card that needed a larger flat screen monitor. This was an excellent buy for an 18 inch LED monitor. I've only had it a couple of weeks & I am still impressed.

Awesome Monitor

 

This monitor suits my every need. I bought it to go with my gaming PC and it works out great for me. I have a new respect and love for monitors and someday thanks to this I wish to have a much larger one for playing SWtOR.
