As one of the newer flatpanel monitors, this HP PC screen is likely to use better technology.
Recent Price Drop of £3.56
In the last week the price of the V213a has dropped by £3.56.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The HP V213a has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V213a also have a built-in speaker.
Alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include the DELL SE2216H (£79.99), or the V7 L215DS-2E (£79.69) which is cheaper.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the AOC E2275SWJ (£88.80) is also worth considering.
We calculated the average ratings for all HP PC displays and specifically for HP medium monitors and found that in both cases HP had good ratings compared to other brands.
With a width of only 489.4 millimeters, the HP V213a is very narrow compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that came out in the last year. The widths of newly released medium monitors range from 370mm to 960mm.
If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the DELL SE2216H (£79.99) (502mm and cheaper), or the Hannspree HL207DPB (£68.24) (477.7mm and cheaper).
The shallowest medium monitor that has been around for a comparable time to the V213a is 7mm deep, the deepest is 610mm, and the average depth is 110mm. At only 48 millimeters, the HP V213a is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the V213a.
+2 More reasons for
The HP V213a is fairly short (only 300.6 millimeters) compared to most of the other PC monitors that came out around the same time as the V213a. Across all the newly released medium monitors the heights range from 28mm to 620mm, and the average height is 360mm.
13 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The HP V213a does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other latest medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the HP EliteDisplay E240c (£188.99) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The HP V213a does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the V213a also do not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
Most new comparable spec PC monitors are not 3D compatible. The HP V213a is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Quite Low RMS Rated Audio Power
The RMS rated audio power of the HP V213a of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest amongst recently released similar spec PC monitors. The average RMS rated audio power of latest medium monitors is 5W, and the RMS rated audio powers range from 1W to 32W.
+10 More reasons against
Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
When compared to other latest comparable spec PC displays, the HP V213a's vertical viewing angle of only 65 degrees is one of the narrowest. Across all the recently released flatpanel monitors the vertical viewing angles range from 65° to 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
Latest LCD screens have horizontal viewing angles of between 89° and 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°. With a horizontal viewing angle of only 90 degrees, the HP V213a has one of the narrowest horizontal viewing angles amongst comparable spec flatpanel monitors of this age.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
Across all the medium monitors that are a similar age to the V213a the display brightness range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m². The HP V213a has a very dim display brightness (only 200 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other newly released medium monitors.
Only HD HD Type
This flatpanel monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as it.
Quite Small Viewable Height
Across all the medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the V213a the viewable heights range from 250mm to 69,000mm. When compared to other PC screens that have been around for a similar time to the V213a, the HP V213a's viewable height of only 257.58 millimeters is one of the smallest.
Quite Small Display Diagonal
With a display diagonal of only 52.57 centimeters, the HP V213a has one of the smallest screen sizes amongst flatpanel monitors of this age. The smallest display diagonal of medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months is 52cm and the biggest is 690cm.
Only 600:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
The HP V213a has a maximum typical contrast ratio of 600:1. That's 40% less typical contrast ratio than a 1000:1 PC display, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio.
A 600:1 typical contrast ratio is actually the worst typical contrast ratio across all recently released comparable spec PC monitors.
A 3000:1 typical contrast ratio is the best typical contrast ratio amongst similar types of PC monitor.
Quite Small Viewable Width
The smallest viewable width of medium monitors that have been available for the last year is 290mm, the biggest is 820mm, and the average viewable width is 550mm. At only 457.92 millimeters, the HP V213a has a quite small viewable width compared to most of the other new comparable spec LCD screens.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on medium monitors that have been available for the last year.
PC screens with a more display resolution that might also be worth considering include the HP EliteDisplay E242 (£133.24) (1920 x 1200).
