6 Reasons For

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC display and we think the AOC e2250Swdnk, and the NEC MultiSync EA244 (£306.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to the Compaq L2206 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Compaq L2206 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

HP PC Screens Have Good Reviews

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on PC displays of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Has Five Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the Compaq L2206 is more than most flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to it. This PC monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the Compaq L2206. The cables included "Audio (3.5mm)", "DisplayPort", "DVI" and "USB" are also found on this HP PC monitor.

At only 323.1 millimeters, the Compaq L2206 is fairly short compared to most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and type to the Compaq L2206. The shortest LCD screen of a similar age and spec to the Compaq L2206 is 41mm tall and the tallest is 4,800mm.

8 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The Compaq L2206 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the Compaq L2206 are also not 3D compatible.

PC displays which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC displays that have been on the market for a similar time to the Compaq L2206 do not have an integrated card reader. The HP Compaq L2206 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader to this PC display and we think the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£349.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) is also worth considering.
