One Industry Award

This PC monitor was given an "Editor's Choice" award by Digitaltrends.com who wrote that this PC screen was terrific.

Expert Reviews Are Poor

The average expert rating of this flatpanel monitor is 63 out of 100 based on nine expert reviews from sites including CNET.com, PC Mag, Digitaltrends.com and Mac World. If all the PC screens of a comparable type and age are ranked by average expert review score then this LCD screen is in the bottom 9%.

Reasonably Priced

Three HP X2301 owners said that it was good value for money. Cnet.com mentioned in their HP X2301 review on expert website CNET.com six years ago “The HP x2301's low price, good performance”. Five years ago expert review site Digitaltrends.com said “The x2301 will make a majority of users extremely happy for the $249 price tag” in their review and scored the product 4 stars. Uk.hardware.info mentioned in their review “Easytoaccess connection options, all at a great low price”.

One person who bought the HP X2301 concluded that it was cheap. Cnet.com mentioned “The Samsung S23A550H are LED-based, low-priced, and, when push comes to shove, are ultimately worth their low prices” in their review.

Good Size

Several people reckoned that the product was thin. Five years ago expert review site Digitaltrends.com gave the product a rating of 4 stars and mentioned in their HP X2301 review “The HP x2301 LED Micro Thin monitor looks thin enough to belong on a laptop.”. Uk.hardware.info wrote in their HP X2301 review “The HP 2301 features a thin panel” . Chip.com.my mentioned in their review of this PC monitor “With it you get a slim,  space-saving monitor that looks fantastic”.

Nice Design

Some HP X2301 reviewers who reviewed it mentioned that it was good looking. Uk.hardware.info mentioned “Gorgeous slim design”. Uk.hardware.info also said “Stylish design”. Chip.com.my wrote “3) It displays prettily” in their HP X2301 review.

One customer who bought the product concluded that it was a good design.

One HP X2301 reviewer said that it was easy to use the menus. Uk.hardware.info mentioned “Finesse, menu et affichage OSD, connectique accessible, prix”.

Inferior Picture Quality

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

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when HP released the X2301.

LED Display

This LCD screen has an LED display, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the DELL U2412M, the iiyama XB3070WQS (£499.99), or the Eizo Foris FS2434 (£312.28) which has better reviews.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most LCD screens that are a similar age to the X2301 do not have a built-in speaker(s). The HP X2301 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the AOC e2260Swhu, or the Viewsonic CDE3200.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for 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.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the 27" Thunderbolt Display (£921.50), or the 27" Cinema Display both from Apple or the Asus MK241.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The HP X2301 does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar spec and age to the X2301 also do not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a card reader integrated and we think the U2413 (£199.00), the UP2414Q (£499.99), or the U3014 (£749.00) all from DELL is also worth considering.
