6 Reasons For

Nice Design

One person who bought the HP Zvr considered that it was good looking. In October last year expert review site Techradar.com said in their review of the HP Zvr “It's pretty easy to get goin”.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec PC screens that came out more than a year ago.

We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Philips 224E5[plb_1499773_price], and the AOC G2460VQ6[plb_3032738_price] is also worth considering.

3D Compatible

The HP Zvr is 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that were launched around the same time as the Zvr are not 3D compatible.

We compared all the other 3D compatible PC displays to this PC monitor and we think the Samsung S29E790C[plb_2827679_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price], or the iiyama B2783QSU-B1[plb_3011412_price].

Has a Built-In Camera

Unlike most of the other PC screens that have been on the market for more than a year which do not have a built-in camera, the HP Zvr has a built-in camera.

It may also be worth considering one of the other PC displays with a built-in camera currently available including the DELL UZ2215H[plb_2323495_price] which has better reviews.

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP Zvr does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that came out more than a year ago which have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Philips BDM3275[plb_2851024_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP Zvr does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays of this type and age also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price], or the DELL UP2715K[plb_2678878_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
