LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than two years.
We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think the DELL E2014 (£64.99), the Edge10 ES195c (£78.72), and the Hanns.G HP195 (£75.75) which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Hanns.G HL205 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC displays of this age and type which do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Acer 206HQ or you might consider a better rated flatpanel monitor such as the E950 (£59.99), or the E2050S (£74.35) both from AOC.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the Hanns.G HL205 is more than most PC screens of this age and spec. The most frequently found cable included is VGA, but this cable included is not found on this PC display. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|VGA are also found on this LCD screen.
1600 X 900 Graphics Resolution
The Hanns.G HL205 has a maximum resolution of 1600 x 900. That's 13% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). The best resolution of all small monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HL205 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and the worst is 720 x 400.
1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio on LCD screens of this age and type.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
The screen sizes of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the HL205 range from 8.9cm to 52cm. With a display diagonal of 49.53 centimeters, the Hanns.G HL205 has one of the bigger screen sizes amongst comparable spec PC displays of this age.
4 Reasons Against
One Hanns.G HL205 owner who purchased it said that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Bluefromnowhere mentioned on Amazon “Importantly for gamers (PS3 in this case) there is no HDMI input” and gave it a rating of 60 out of 100.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other small monitors that were launched around the same time as the HL205, the Hanns.G HL205 is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC screens that are a similar age to the HL205, the Hanns.G HL205 does not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider including the HP 688736-001 which is also higher rated.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the HL205 do not have an integrated card reader. The Hanns.G HL205 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
