HP 2311gt Review


You can almost hear the din over 3D subsiding these days, like a band of carnies riding into the sunset after shaking down every kid in town for a ride on the Sea Dragon. The novelty of seeing television in three dimensions for the first time has come...

DVI, VGA and HDMI inputs ; Understated, low-key design ; Convincing 3D performance

Horizontal stripes from polarizing filter ; Greenish tint out of the box ; Average brightness diminished by 3D glasses ; Not many settings to tweak

Its passive 3D mode goes a long way in improving impressions, but you should be prepared to make extensive use of 3D to make its $270 price tag feel worthwhile.

HP x2301 LCD Monitor Review: Glossy Display Boasts Unusual Design


The glossy-screened HP x2301, with its dark gray bezel, aluminum trim, and green-tinted translucent base, is certainly out to make an impression. Unfortunately, this 23-inch monitor's performance isn't nearly as impressive as its design.

Striking design

Mediocre screen performance

The x2301 stands out with its striking translucent base and glossy screen, but its viewing angle and screen uniformity are mediocre.

HP x2301


While the TV industry has been busy hammering, slicing and shaving TVs down to inconceivably thin dimensions, monitor makers have been watching – and following suit. The same technology that makes TVs so inconceivably thin — LED backlights — makes even...

Incredibly thin display panel ; Sharp, colorful picture ; Effective antiglare coating ; Practical base-mounted buttons, connections ; Low power consumption

Little room for adjustment, no VESA mounts ; Sometimes quirky interface

While it can’t match the viewing angle or contrast of pricier monitors with IPS panels, the x2301 will make a majority of users extremely happy for the $249 price tag...

HP x2301 Micro Thin LED monitor


LED-based monitors actually worth their asking price is a recent trend I can easily get behind. Displays such as the Dell S2330MX and the Samsung S23A550H are LED-based, low-priced, and, when push comes to shove, are ultimately worth their low prices.

The HP x2301 features a thin panel, a well-designed OSD array and menu, and easy-to-access connection options, all at a great low price

The monitor's green push can be minimized but not eliminated

The HP x2301's low price, good performance, and sound design make it a new high-water mark for budget monitors.

Review: HP 2311gt 3D monitor


HP targets budget market with 2311gt 3D monitor

Inexpensive ; Lightweight glasses ; No problems with flicker, crosstalk ; Full HD

Mediocre color, contrast ratio ; Narrow viewing angle compared to IPS

HP is among the many companies embracing 3D technology, and its 2311gt monitor aims to make the technology an affordable upgrade. The 23-inch monitor works as a standard 2D display, or as a 3D panel when combined with passive 3D glasses. In our full

"This monitor is great for any on a budget or new buyer."


After spending some time adjusting, I found that I could ENTIRELY remove the green push and neutralize the colors. Once completed, the picture is wonderful for a 60hz monitor. I use this monitor for gaming, regular computing, school work, movies,...

Thin, affordable, elegant, glossy, bright, clear, and fast response time.

No wall mount, very restricted viewing angle, gloss can exaggerate picture in negative ways, and concerning on small or wobbly desks.

Update for 11/4 review


Somehow I can update the patch from CyberLink (Updates PowerDVD 10 Ultra 3D Mark II to build 5223 from 2013-05-06 ), now I can watch the 3D blu-ray movies, also other 2D movies in 3D...

You can't use the 1920 x 1080 resolution for either 3D movies or games, but as long as you set the resolution to lower than 1920X1080 then you can

HDMI Funky


I gave it two stars because they would be great monitors if you you weren't wanting to use HDMI. Neweggs customer service was yet again amazing. I just told them my problem and had a full refund in two days

Nice looking monitor, built in speakers, and I got 2 of them for $130 each with a rebate

HDMI didn't work for me. From reading past reviews this seemed like it was going to be a gamble but I figured I would try them. As many have said they won't wake up or recognize input from HDMI......very frustrating. I tried on both monitors with three...

This is a GREAT 3D Monitor!!


I almost didn't buy this monitor because I was afraid that it would be outdated or not supported. Not like that at all. The Tri-Def software is still supported, and the 3D movie viewer is too. great monitor for the $150 price. Nothing like it any where...

Half Price - Best I have Seen. It is highly rated by CNET and other tech sites. It is Passive, but it doesn't look half the resolution. Movies still look like High def. Awesome 3D on all 3D movies. Who needs to go to the movies?!?! CRYSIS 3 and NFSMW...

The OEM TRI-DEF software it comes with doesn't do much. You have to buy the full version to play the latest games. $50 for that, but try the trial, it is worth it. There are the lines in the screen that you can see if you get really close, but not that...

A fantastic 3D monitor!


This is a great monitor for a home user or anyone who enjoys watching 3D content at home in HD without the flicker of active glasses. I would not reccomend this to anyone who does photoshop or graphic design work. The passive film on the display will...

Very bright, crisp, vibrant monitor. 3D effect is excellent, great depth, and the passive glasses cause no eye strain and never need charging. Crysis 3 (would that be Crysis 3D?) looks fantastic in stereoscopic 3D

My only complaint about the monitor itself is that when you wear the glasses while on the desktop, everything looks kinda blurry and only half rendered. I know its because of the passive film on the display. Once you pop the glasses off everything is...
