+5 More reasons against
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDisplay P202 are not 3D compatible. The HP ProDisplay P202 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
The ProDisplay P202 is fairly heavy (3.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other small monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P202. The lightest PC display of a comparable spec and age to the ProDisplay P202 is 140g weight and the heaviest is 5.8kg.

Fairly Slow Response Time
With a response time of 8 milliseconds, the ProDisplay P202 has one of the slower response times amongst similar spec flatpanel monitors of this age. The response times of similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P202 range from 5ms to 30ms.
