3 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

On average HP medium monitors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all LCD screens manufactured by HP.

Quite Bright Display Brightness

Across all the comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the L2208w the display brightness range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². At 300 candellas per square meter, the HP L2208w has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has Two Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the HP L2208w is more than most similar spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as it. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to the L2208w. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this LCD screen.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the L2208w do not have a built-in speaker. The HP L2208w is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very High Running Costs

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the L2208w is £93, which makes it one of the most expensive to run PC monitors of a similar spec and age.

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The HP L2208w is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP L2208w does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the L2208w also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP L2208w does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC screens that were released more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this PC monitor and we think the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] is also worth considering.

Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution

The HP L2208w has a maximum display resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC display, which is the most common display resolution. The worst display resolution of all PC screens of this age and spec is 1366 x 768 pixels and the best is 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle

Across all the LCD screens of this type and age the horizontal viewing angles range from 60° to 1,800°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°. The HP L2208w has one of the narrower horizontal viewing angles (only 160 degrees) amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

The average vertical viewing angle of medium monitors that came out more than two years ago is 170°. The HP L2208w has one of the narrower vertical viewing angles (only 160 degrees) amongst comparable spec flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only 1024 X 768 (XGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the HP L2208w is 1024 x 768 (XGA). That's 62% less resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). This PC screen also have graphics resolutions of 720 x 400, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all medium monitors that have been available for more than two years the best resolution is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.

3 Other reasons to consider the HP L2208w

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this HP PC display was released.

LCD Display Type

The HP L2208w has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most similar spec PC monitors that have been available for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the Planar PLL2210W[plb_1809826_price], or the Eizo ColorEdge CX270[plb_1724638_price] which has better reviews.

If the display type of this PC display is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] (LED and higher rated).

Average Width

At 514 millimeters, the HP L2208w has a relatively standard width compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the L2208w.

Alternative 514mm wide PC screens currently available which you might also want to look at include the Philips 226V4[plb_1394891_price] which has better reviews.
