9 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago have a built-in speaker, however the EliteDisplay E240 does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer K242HQK (£292.68) or the iiyama B2780HSU-W1 (£180.95) are also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The EliteDisplay E240 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and type to the EliteDisplay E240 also do not have a built-in camera.
Most PC screens of a comparable type and age to the EliteDisplay E240 are not 3D compatible. The HP EliteDisplay E240 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the iiyama B2783QSU-B1 (£249.97), or the Acer XB240H (£149.99) which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The HP EliteDisplay E240 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays of this age and type also do not have an integrated card reader.
+6 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that came out around the same time as it.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative LCD screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including cheaper PC displays such as the HP Pavilion 24cw (£139.97), the Lenovo T2424z (£194.93), or the Philips 246E7QDSW (£141.50).
If you are looking for a PC monitor with a more display resolution then you might want to consider the [pl_3018890] (1920 x 1200 and cheaper), or the S24E650DW (£183.12) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper) both from Samsung or the DELL UltraSharp 24 (£171.00) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated).
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This LCD screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio on similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as it.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The EliteDisplay E240 has a fairly dim display brightness (only 250 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the EliteDisplay E240. Across all the medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the EliteDisplay E240 the display brightness range from 25 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m².
Fairly Slow Response Time
Across all the similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EliteDisplay E240 the response times range from 1ms to 40ms. At 7 milliseconds, the HP EliteDisplay E240 has a quite slow response time compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the EliteDisplay E240.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP EliteDisplay E240
OK Running Costs
This PC display is rated A for energy efficiency, and the average running cost of the EliteDisplay E240 is £44 over 5 years based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 486 PC monitors of this age and spec.

LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec PC screens that have been around for more than a year.
Other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper PC displays such as the Philips 246E7QDSW (£141.50), or the HP Pavilion 24cw (£139.97).
+3 Other reasons
5000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This flatpanel monitor has a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and spec.
We compared all the other PC screens that have a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this PC display and we think the V241 (£132.00), and the Pavilion 24cw (£139.97) both from HP or the Hannspree HQ271HPG (£187.06) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a PC screen with a higher contrast ratio then you might want to consider the DELL UZ2315H (£187.25) (8000000:1 and higher rated); or the HP Pavilion 23xw (£204.96) (10000000:1 and cheaper).
At 557.2 millimeters, the EliteDisplay E240 has a relatively average width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than a year.
PC displays with a wider width that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo T2454p (£227.82) (557.4mm) which is also cheaper.
