Reasonably Priced

One customer concluded that this PC monitor was good value for money. Mr. John D. Bowley scored it very highly and he wrote in his review of the HP LA2205wg on Amazon “VGA or DVD D input options coupled with great adjustability have made this an excellent buy at the price that I paid [refurbished”.

Cnet.com.au gave the HP LA2205wg a rating of 4 stars and mentioned on expert review site CNET.com.au “Despite a few build and design issues, HP's latest 22-inch monitor punches above its weight and is perfect for users looking for a budget, widescreen solution that is both versatile” in their review.

We calculated the average reviews for all HP flatpanel monitors and also specifically for HP medium monitors and found that in both cases HP had good reviews.

Chart

Narrow

With a width of only 511 millimeters, the LA2205wg is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the LA2205wg. Medium monitors that are a similar age to the LA2205wg have widths of between 340mm and 960mm, and the average width is 590mm.

If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to consider the 22M37[pl_2729269_price] (509mm), or the 22M47[pl_2746903_price] (510mm) both from LG or the DELL E2215HV[plb_2861120_price] (513mm).

12 Reasons Against

Poor Design

One person who reviewed this PC monitor concluded that it was not a good design.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LA2205wg does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC displays of a similar age and type to the LA2205wg which have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the AOC e2470Swh[plb_3027864_price]; or the Asus VP228TE[plb_3240551_price] are also worth considering.
