HP PC Displays Have Good Reviews

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

Chart

Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

The narrowest vertical viewing angle of PC screens of this spec and age is 50°, the widest is 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°. At 178 degrees, the HP LP3065 has a very wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other PC displays that are a comparable age to the LP3065.

Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the HP LP3065 has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago. Medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the LP3065 have horizontal viewing angles of between 60° and 1,800°.

Chart Edit

Three DVI-D Ports

The HP LP3065 is a three DVI-D port PC screen. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years have between 1 and 10 DVI-D ports.

Chart Edit

2560 X 1600 (WQXGA) Graphics Resolution

The HP LP3065 has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA). That's 98% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). The worst resolution of all similar spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the LP3065 is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The average display brightness of PC screens that are a similar age to the LP3065 is 280 cd/m². With a display brightness of 300 candellas per square meter, the HP LP3065 has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has Two Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the HP LP3065 is more than most flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to it. This HP PC monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on PC displays that were released more than two years ago. The cable included "DVI" is also found on this PC display.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the LP3065, the HP LP3065 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama XB2483HSU which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that have been available for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The HP LP3065 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Asus VG23AH which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP LP3065 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the LP3065 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP LP3065 does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC screens that are a similar age to the LP3065 also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL U2413 (£279.00).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

At only 100 millimeters, the HP LP3065 has a quite low maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years. The lowest maximum height adjustment of comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for a similar time to the LP3065 is 13mm, the highest is 850mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on PC monitors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The LP3065 is one of the less economic to run PC monitors of this spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the LP3065 will cost £202 over 5 years to run.

Chart

Fairly Slow Response Time

The HP LP3065 has a quite slow response time (6 milliseconds) compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and spec. PC screens that were launched around the same time as the LP3065 have response times of between 1ms and 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the PC displays of this age and spec the weights range from 3g to 39kg. The HP LP3065 is one of the heaviest PC screens of this type and age (13.4 kilograms) amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP LP3065

Released Over Four Years Ago

This LCD screen was released over four years ago.

LCD Display Type

The HP LP3065 has an LCD display type which is better than most comparable spec PC screens that came out around the same time as it. Most medium monitors that were released more than two years ago have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus VG23AH, or the Philips 298P4 (£467.45).

If you want a PC screen with a better display type then you might want to consider the S27D590 (£249.95) (LED and higher rated), or the S32D850T (LED and higher rated) both from Samsung.
