We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the Viewsonic VG2437mc which has better reviews is also worth considering.

9 Reasons Against

Inferior Picture Quality

One HP W2448hc owner mentioned that it did not have good picture quality.

A Bit Expensive

One customer wrote in their reviews that it was not cheap. Techradar.com mentioned in their HP W2448hc review “The HP W2448HC may be one of the most expensive monitors around.”.

Poor Product Quality

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago do not have a card reader integrated. The W2448hc is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a card reader integrated including the UP2414Q (£449.00), the UP2715K (£523.00), or the UP3214Q (£598.80) all from DELL which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

The average 8 year running cost of the W2448hc is £344 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run medium monitors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart

Heavy

The HP W2448hc is one of the heavier medium monitors that have been available for more than two years (9.8 kilograms) amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the medium monitors that are a comparable age to the W2448hc the weights range from 3g to 39kg.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP W2448hc

Released Over Four Years Ago

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

LCD Display

The W2448hc has an LCD display which is better than most PC displays that are a comparable age to it. Most PC displays of a similar age and spec to it have an LED display.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display to this PC display and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer V226HQLAbmd is also worth considering.

If the display type of this PC display is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the Benq GL2450HM (£109.72) (LED,LCD) which is also higher rated.
