2 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The HP S2031a has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the S2031a do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

HP Has Good LCD Screen Reviews

HP is one of the better rated flatpanel monitor brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and HP also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the S2031a, the HP S2031a is not 3D compatible.

PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP S2031a does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years, the HP S2031a does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£371.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92).

Quite Small Display Diagonal

LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years have screen sizes of between 28cm and 770cm, and the average display diagonal is 65cm. With a display diagonal of only 50.8 centimeters, the HP S2031a's display diagonal is one of the smallest amongst medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Audio Power

Flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the S2031a have RMS rated audio powers of between 0.5W and 49W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.2W. At only 2 Watts, the HP S2031a has a quite low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other PC displays of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

Across all the LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the S2031a the vertical viewing angles range from 50° to 180°. The HP S2031a has a fairly narrow vertical viewing angle (only 160 degrees) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the S2031a.

3 Other reasons to consider the HP S2031a

OK Running Costs

The S2031a has an average 5 year running cost of £63 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 998 PC screens of a similar age and type.

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this PC display was released.

LCD Display Type

The HP S2031a has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type to it.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the Planar PLL2210W, and the Eizo ColorEdge CX270 is also worth considering.

PC displays with a better display type that might also be worth considering include the AOC e2250Swdnk (LED) which is also higher rated.
