HPs L1908w delivers a cheap but acceptable experience for users on a tight budget who dont want to risk a "no-name" brand display...

Solid base
Acceptable image quality
Rugged design
No DVI port
Not great at extreme angles
Doesnt have a digital DVI connector -- only RGB is included, poor viewing angles The Final Word Its undoubtedly no stunner on hardware, but the HP 1908ws specifications are palatable given the price
And this screen is all about that price
