3 Reasons For
Only Released Five Months Ago
The V243 was only relased by HP five months ago. Newer flatpanel monitors like this one are likely to have better features.
HP PC Screens Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all HP PC screens and specifically for HP medium monitors and found that in both cases HP had good ratings.
The weights of medium monitors that came out around the same time as the V243 range from 2.6g to 33kg. The HP V243 is fairly light (only 3 kilograms) compared to most of the other newly released medium monitors.
10 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last year have a built-in speaker, however the HP V243 does not have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the DELL S2316H (£107.94), the Asus VP228H (£98.86), or the HP EliteDisplay E240c (£188.99).
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC screens that were released in the last year, the HP V243 does not have an integrated card reader.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The HP V243 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays that came out in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the HP EliteDisplay E240c (£188.99) is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months are not 3D compatible. The HP V243 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
+7 More reasons against
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on new comparable spec LCD screens.
There are a number of alternative LCD screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper PC displays such as the Samsung S22F350FHU (£93.81), or the Acer KA240H (£99.59).
If the display resolution of this medium monitor is too few for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDisplay E242 (£128.73) (1920 x 1200).
Very Small Viewable Height
The average viewable height of comparable spec PC displays that were released around the same time as the V243 is 770mm, and the viewable heights range from 250mm to 69,000mm. The HP V243 has a quite small viewable height (only 289.89 millimeters) compared to most of the other new medium monitors.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found typical contrast ratio on comparable spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as it.
Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
Across all the new PC displays the vertical viewing angles range from 65° to 180°. At only 160 degrees, the HP V243 has a quite narrow vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the V243.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
At only 170 degrees, the HP V243 has a fairly narrow horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other LCD screens that were launched in the last year. Across all the medium monitors that came out around the same time as the V243 the horizontal viewing angles range from 89° to 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
With a display brightness of only 250 candellas per square meter, the HP V243 has a fairly dim display brightness compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the V243. The dimmest display brightness of latest similar spec LCD screens is 200 cd/m², the brightest is 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².
4 Other reasons to consider the HP V243
Average Running Costs
The average 5 year running cost of the V243 is £40 based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 371 medium monitors that have been available for the last year.
LED Display Type
This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on recently released comparable spec LCD screens.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the Acer KA240H (£99.59) which is cheaper.
5000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the HP V243 is 5000000:1. That's 95% less contrast ratio than the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio of 100000000:1.
If the contrast ratio of this HP flatpanel monitor is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL SE2216H (£80.08) (8000000:1) which is also cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
With a width of 565.4 millimeters, the HP V243 has a fairly average width compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors.
If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the Acer KA240H (£99.59) (567mm) which is also 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 V243uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this PC monitor over 5 years will generate 0.2 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 6 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
