9 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

A few people concluded that the HP ProDisplay P221 was good value for money. Ant Stone gave the product a rating of 5 stars and mentioned on Amazon “Great price” in their HP ProDisplay P221 review. Mr. M. Kemp wrote in their review on Amazon two years ago “In the end the price online was unbeatable by a long way.I use mine in my home office from my laptop” and rated the product 5 stars.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The ProDisplay P221 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ProDisplay P221 do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the iiyama XU2390HS[plb_2204569_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq RL2455[plb_2006981_price], or the Philips 221B6[plb_2497494_price] is also worth considering.
