13 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One HP W2072a owner who reviewed the product mentioned that it was not good value for money. Declan wrote on Amazon “1600x900 is pathetic at this price” in their review of this PC monitor.

Poor Connectivity

One HP W2072a reviewer wrote in their reviews that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Ravinder Sirohi said in their review of the HP W2072a on Amazon “Has no HDMI port, have to buy converter” however they still scored it 4 stars.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year have a built-in speaker, however the HP W2072a does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Viewsonic VA2265[plb_2778955_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
