Robust

One HP DreamColor Z24x reviewer wrote in their reviews that it was reliable.

HP PC Displays Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all HP PC displays and also specifically for HP medium monitors and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the DreamColor Z24x has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the DreamColor Z24x.

Chart Edit

The HP DreamColor Z24x has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst comparable spec flatpanel monitors of this age. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of medium monitors that have been available for more than a year is 18° and the widest is 180°.

Chart Edit

Two DisplayPorts

The HP DreamColor Z24x has more DisplayPorts than most of the LCD screens of this age and type. Most of the LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the DreamColor Z24x only have one DisplayPort, however this PC screen has two DisplayPorts.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

The HP DreamColor Z24x does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the DreamColor Z24x.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Asus MX27[plb_2792831_price], the Philips BDM3270QP[plb_2997136_price], or the LG 34UB67[plb_2816657_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Samsung S29E790C[plb_2827679_price].

The DreamColor Z24x does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays that are a comparable age to the DreamColor Z24x also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are Very High

The average 5 year running cost of the DreamColor Z24x is £96 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is in the most expensive 11% of all 505 comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart

Pricey

The cheapeast PC displays of a similar spec and age that we found costs £46 and the most expensive costs £4,106. We think that this HP PC display looks expensive for a medium monitor that has been around for more than a year.

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

The lowest maximum height adjustment of comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to the DreamColor Z24x is 17mm and the highest is 510mm. At only 120 millimeters, the DreamColor Z24x has a fairly low maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the DreamColor Z24x.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP DreamColor Z24x

Released Over a Year Ago

HP released the DreamColor Z24x over a year ago.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The DreamColor Z24x has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC display, which is the most common display resolution.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The DreamColor Z24x has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. Most LCD screens of a similar age and spec to it have an LED display type.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LCD Display and we think because of it's better review score, the HP Z Display Z24[plb_1590202_price], the Philips BDM3270[plb_2783117_price], and the Viewsonic VG2860MHL[plb_2884615_price] is also worth considering.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the HP ENVY 32[plb_2562671_price] (LED and cheaper); or the XF270HU[pl_3154384_price] (LED and higher rated), or the B326HULA[pl_3029905_price] (LED and higher rated) both from Acer.

Average Width

The DreamColor Z24x has a pretty typical width (559.4 millimeters) compared to most of the other LCD screens of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 559.4mm wide LCD screens currently available including the HP Z Display Z24[plb_1590202_price] which has better reviews.
