7 Reasons For
Just Released Six Months Ago
This PC screen was released just six months ago.
Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the ProDisplay P240va has a quite wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDisplay P240va. Across all the medium monitors that are a similar age to the ProDisplay P240va the vertical viewing angles range from 65° to 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
Across all the new medium monitors the horizontal viewing angles range from 89° to 180°. With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the HP ProDisplay P240va has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles amongst medium monitors of this age.
HP has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range.
Very Low Power Consumption When Off
At only 0.2 Watts, the ProDisplay P240va has a quite low power consumption when off compared to most of the other latest medium monitors. Across all the recently released medium monitors the power consumptions when off range from 0.005W to 4.3W, and the average power consumption when off is 0.4W.
3000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
The ProDisplay P240va has a maximum typical contrast ratio of 3000:1. That's over three times the typical contrast ratio of the most common typical contrast ratio of 1000:1.
This PC display's typical contrast ratio (3000:1) is in fact the best typical contrast ratio across all medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the ProDisplay P240va.
A 600:1 typical contrast ratio is the worst typical contrast ratio across similar types of PC display.
+2 More reasons for
Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption
The lowest annual energy consumption of similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P240va is 3kWh, the highest is 98kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 47kWh. At only 28 kilowatt hours, the ProDisplay P240va has a fairly low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P240va.
10 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The HP ProDisplay P240va does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other latest comparable spec LCD screens do have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the XB2483HSU-B2DP (£159.97), or the XB2483HSU-B2 (£151.46) both from iiyama or the Acer V276HL (£139.98).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been around for a similar time to the ProDisplay P240va, the ProDisplay P240va does not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
The ProDisplay P240va is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the ProDisplay P240va are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The HP ProDisplay P240va does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the ProDisplay P240va also do not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader which you might want to look at including the DELL U2413 (£262.00) which also has a higher Rating.
+7 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on medium monitors that have been around for the last year.
Only 640 X 480 (VGA) Graphics Resolution
The ProDisplay P240va has a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). That's 85% less resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) LCD screen, which is the most common resolution. Across all medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the ProDisplay P240va the worst resolution is 720 x 400 and the best is 3840 x 2160.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many PC monitors that have been around for the last year.
Other flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper PC screens such as the iiyama E2282HV (£107.27).
Flatpanel monitors with a more display resolution that might also be worth looking at include the DELL U2413 (£262.00) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated).
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The HP ProDisplay P240va has one of the dimmer display brightness (only 250 candellas per square meter) amongst similar spec PC displays of this age. The average display brightness of new medium monitors is 280 cd/m².
Only One HDMI Port
The ProDisplay P240va is a one HDMI port LCD screen. Most of the other recently released medium monitors have between one and three HDMI ports.
Fairly Slow Response Time
The ProDisplay P240va has one of the slower response times (8 milliseconds) amongst medium monitors of this age. The average response time of medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the ProDisplay P240va is 5.2ms.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDisplay P240va
Running Costs Are OK
This flatpanel monitor has an energy efficiency rating of A, and based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the ProDisplay P240va will cost £44 over 5 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 371 latest comparable spec PC displays.
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that are a similar age to it.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think the Samsung S24F350FHU (£124.78) which is cheaper; or the DELL U2413 (£262.00) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
5000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The ProDisplay P240va has a maximum contrast ratio of 5000000:1. That's 95% less contrast ratio than a 100000000:1 LCD screen, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays that have a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including cheaper PC displays such as the Hannspree HS 245 HPB (£109.99).
Flatpanel monitors with a higher contrast ratio that might be worth looking at include the DELL S2415H (£121.76) (8000000:1 and higher rated); or the SE2416H (£109.99) (8000000:1 and cheaper), or the S2216M (£89.37) (8000000:1 and cheaper) both from DELL.
+2 Other reasons
With a width of 571.2 millimeters, the HP ProDisplay P240va has a fairly average width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year.
Other LCD screens with a wider width that you might want to look at include the E2480HS-B2 (£119.99) (571.5mm and cheaper), or the B2480HS-B2 (£138.55) (571.5mm and cheaper) both from iiyama or the Hannspree HS 245 HPB (£109.99) (575mm and cheaper).
