One HP X2301 owner who purchased it reckoned that it did not have a wide viewing angle. Expert website Digitaltrends.com mentioned “While it can’t match the viewing angle or contrast of pricier monitors with IPS panels” in their HP X2301 review however despite that they still gave this PC monitor a rating of 4 stars.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The HP X2301 does not have a built-in speaker(s), although keep in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the X2301 also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at including the LG 29EA73, the iiyama B2888UHSU, or the Samsung ME32B.

Not 3D

The HP X2301 is not 3D. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age are also not 3D.

Most similar spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the X2301 do not have a built-in camera. The HP X2301 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Compaq LA2206, or the W2448hc both from HP or the Viewsonic VG2437mc which is also higher rated.
