OK Running Costs

The S2031a has an average 5 year running cost of £63 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 998 PC screens of a similar age and type.

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this PC display was released.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The HP S2031a has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the S2031a do not have a built-in speaker.

HP Has Good LCD Screen Reviews

HP is one of the better rated flatpanel monitor brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and HP also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LCD Display Type

The HP S2031a has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type to it.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the Planar PLL2210W (£75.23), and the Eizo ColorEdge CX270 is also worth considering.

PC displays with a better display type that might also be worth considering include the AOC e2250Swdnk (£79.99) (LED) which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the S2031a, the HP S2031a is not 3D compatible.

PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP S2031a does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years, the HP S2031a does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 (£199), or the U2713H (£349) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£185.51).
