4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The HP S2331a has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the S2331a which do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

HP Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

HP is one of the superior PC monitor brands according to average user and expert reviews, and HP also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

At 300 candellas per square meter, the HP S2331a has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other PC displays that are a similar age to the S2331a. Medium monitors that were released more than two years ago have display brightness of between 30 cd/m² and 1,700 cd/m².

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

5 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The S2331a is in the most expensive 15% of all 998 flatpanel monitors of this spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the S2331a will cost £87 over 5 years to run.

Not 3D Compatible

Most similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S2331a are not 3D compatible. The HP S2331a is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP S2331a does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP S2331a does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the S2331a also do not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The HP S2331a has an LCD display type which is better than most LCD screens of this age and spec. Most medium monitors that were released around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display to this LCD screen and we think the Planar PLL2210W[plb_1809826_price], and the Eizo ColorEdge CX270[plb_1724638_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

PC screens with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.
