5 Reasons For
Has One Cable Included
The HP V241 has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this flatpanel monitor. The cables included AC|VGA are also found on this PC display.
HP has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range.
3000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
The HP V241 has a maximum typical contrast ratio of 3000:1. That's over three times the typical contrast ratio of a 1000:1 LCD screen, which is the most common typical contrast ratio. The typical contrast ratio of all medium monitors that have been around for more than a year ranges from 600:1 to 5000:1.
Very Low Maximum Power Consumption
At only 26 Watts, the HP V241 has a fairly low maximum power consumption compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V241. Across all the comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the V241 the maximum power consumptions range from 16W to 170W.
The shallowest similar spec PC display that came out more than a year ago is 15mm deep and the deepest is 700mm. At only 47 millimeters, the HP V241 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The HP V241 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to the V241 which have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the LG 24MB35PH (£133.19) or the Philips 221B6 (£96.99) are also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the V241, the HP V241 does not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at including the DELL UZ2215H (£202.63), or the Viewsonic VG2437 (£162.55) which is also higher rated.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The HP V241 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V241 also do not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
The HP V241 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC screens that were released around the same time as the V241 are also not 3D compatible.
+5 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This PC monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including cheaper PC displays such as the S23E650D (£139.97), or the S22E450M (£127.86) both from Samsung.
If the display resolution of this PC display is not many enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL UltraSharp 24 (£193.85) (1920 x 1200) which is also higher rated.
Very Low RMS Rated Audio Power
Across all the medium monitors that are a comparable age to the V241 the RMS rated audio powers range from 1W to 18W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.4W. At only 2 Watts, the HP V241 has a quite low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the V241.
Fairly Slow Response Time
The HP V241 has one of the slower response times (8 milliseconds) amongst LCD screens of this age. PC displays of this age and spec have response times of between 1ms and 40ms.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP V241
Running Costs Are Average
The V241 is typical compared to the other 486 LCD screens of this age and spec that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the V241 is £37.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the V241.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC screens of this spec and age.
There are a number of other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper PC monitors such as the S23E650D (£139.97), or the S22E450M (£127.86) both from Samsung.
+3 Other reasons
5000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This PC monitor has a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found dynamic contrast ratio on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
We compared all the other PC monitors that have a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this PC display and we think cheaper PC monitors such as the HP Pavilion 24cw (£139.97) is also worth considering.
If the contrast ratio of this flatpanel monitor is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the Philips 226V4LSB2 (10000000:1 and cheaper) or the LG 23MP67 (£115.98) (10000000:1 and higher rated), or the HP 24uh (£127.57) (10000000:1 and higher rated).
The HP V241 has a relatively standard width (563 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the V241.
If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might also want to consider the DELL E2414H (£145.63) (570mm and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this PC monitor have been estimated based on other similar PC monitors. If you know how much electricity and water the HP V241uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this PC monitor over 5 years will generate 0.18 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 5 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
