11 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

The average expert rating of this LCD screen is 70 out of 100 based on five expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, CNET.com.au, Zdnet.com.au and erenumerique.fr.

Good Product Quality

One HP 2159m reviewer who bought this PC monitor considered that it was good quality. Six years ago Gadgetmac.com wrote in their review “Good color quality”.

Robust

One person wrote in their reviews that it was well made. Expert website Gadgetmac.com mentioned in their review of the HP 2159m “It also has built in speakers that are no visable”.

Good Connectivity

One customer who reviewed the HP 2159m concluded that it was good in terms of HDMI connections. Expert website Gadgetmac.com wrote “The Hp 2159m Display has full 1080p HD with Hdmi, Dvi-d, VGA” in their review of this PC monitor.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 2159m which do not have a built-in speaker, the HP 2159m has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the AOC e2260Swhu, the Samsung 320MXN-3, and the AVUE AVG22WBV which has better reviews is also worth considering.
