HP w2558hc

 

The 25.5-inch Hewlett-Packard w2558hc is packed with features and at an average price of $460, it's well worth the investment. A quick list of its features include: two HDMI ports, a Webcam, a microphone, five USB ports, compact flash and SD card...

The HP w2558hc is a feature-laden display with numerous connection options and extras. Also, it has a built-in digital photo frame interface and good performance in movies and games

The HP w2558hc has no pivoting feature, lackluster viewing angles, and its gaming preset is calibrated too bright

The HP w2558hc is jam-packed with features and well worth its asking price.

HP w2558hc Black 25.5-Inch LCD Review - PCWorld

 

The W2558hc performed well in our image-quality tests, presenting sharp, readable text on black and white backgrounds alike. Text was quite easy to read even at 6 points; we didn't have to strain to see the lettering.

Displayed nice colors in tests

Lacks a VGA connection

This display offers impressive image quality and great features, including a card reader and built-in reading light.

HP w2558hc and Planar PX2611w

 

Are you looking to upgrade to a flat panel LCD monitor? Today we'll be reviewing two that are definitely easy on the eyes (though possibly not the budget), the HP w2558hc and the Planar PX2611w. Both have a lot to offer the discriminating user.

Perhaps you purchased a newer desktop that already has an LCD monitor, but it is too small and you want something bigger. Or, if you are like me, you have a laptop but want the ability to have a setup on your desk where the screen isn't so close to...

If you want a screen that can do it all, and don't mind paying for it, the HP w2558hc is for you.

Packed with features; great performance; sleek, sturdy design

High price; oversaturated whites; some ports inconveniently located

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