2 Other reasons to consider the HP L2208w

Released Over Four Years Ago

This PC display has been on the market for over four years.

LCD Display

The HP L2208w has a better display type than most flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to it. This PC display has an LCD display, whereas most comparable spec LCD screens that were released more than two years ago have an LED display.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the Acer V226HQLAbmd[plb_1910007_price] which has better reviews.

If the display type of this medium monitor is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Benq GL2450HM[plb_26668_price] (LED,LCD and higher rated).
