4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other LCD screens of this age and type which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the HP S2331a has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC D2769 is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Very High Running Costs

The S2331a is in the most expensive 15% of all 993 flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the S2331a will cost £87 over 5 years to run.

Not 3D

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago, the HP S2331a is not 3D.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D then you might want to look at the AOC d2757Ph which also has a higher rating.
