Nope I got mine from the last woot, and it is only tiltable but is otherwise fixed in the stand. Nice monitor though, recommended.

1) It's very light and EXTREMELY BRIGHT! I had to turn down the brightness a lot! It makes my 22" LCD look old and used.

2) It HAS HDMI, so you can connect any HDMI source, like XBOX 360 to it.

3) It doesn't have a VESA mount.

4) No speakers

5) Viewing Angles: It's a lot better than my Acer 22"...but it's not perfect. Unlike my other monitor, I can watch movies on this thing from any angle. Colors do shift from green to blue to pink very slightly but it's not so bad. I wouldn't use this if you are a professional graphics artist but it works great for the office working, game playing, movie watching, online warrior that you are.



Actually if you refer to the manual on HP's site, and this is the 2311X, you'll see that you remove the bracket that plugs into the stand to expose the VESA mounting holes. I got one of these last time and am thinking about another one today.

My video board in the 'puter I want to connect to this monitor has the following settings for number of lines:
900,
960,
1024,
1050,
1200,

OK, everybody laugh, then get over it and tell me, will this be any improvement over my CRT.

I would like to buy this for my sister who needs it for photography work, photoshop and such, which would be connected to her 13 inch macbook pro.

Would this cut it?

Thanks.

Horrible deal. Newegg has had some recent deals on NEW 23-24" monitors for the same price.

I suggest going to a local store to view a couple monitors first. Compare the glossy screen versus the non-glare finish style. For me, the glossy glass-like screens seem to have a more vibrant picture in which the colors pop more. Judging from the pictures of this monitor, this appears to have a non-glare finish on it. I really don't notice glare on a desktop monitor anyway. Maybe outdoors with a laptop... but not indoors.

Anyone else know for sure?



You understand. It is unfortunate that retailers use the term LED display (there aren't any LED displays) when they really mean LED backlit LCD displays. The term LED display is a common misnomer.

This is the HP 2311x monitor. I purchased one new a week ago at Staples for 179.99. So far it is a great Monitor for the price. My only gripe is that the stand is very flimsy. When you touch it, it wobbles like crazy. I'm thinking about returning it and getting the 25" model for about 50.00 more.

Well you only told us half of the resolution setting. We would need to know the height AND width (i.e. 1024 x 768). This monitor is good for 1920 x 1080 and below. The ratio of width to height is 16:9 (if it was 16 inches wide it would be nine high). 1024 X 576 would work well.

You have checked for updated video driver files? The ones which came with your machine may not have included sizes for wide screen monitors but there are likely new driver files which do.

I bought this the last time around and its a great deal. Mine works and looks like it was brand new, and I tested for dead pixels/bad ports and it all checked out beautifully. The screen is sufficiently bright and works great for anything from gaming to photoshop to writing papers and browsing the web.

Aww man, the lack of a VESA mount is a deal breaker for me. I am trying to replace my 17" that is on its way out.

Anyone have a recommendation for a similar product with VESA?

Agreed on the vibrant colors, but my office has a window and a glossy screen is a deal killer for me when the afternoon sun comes in over my shoulder. Even with the tinted windows and shades pulled, a glossy monitor is virtually impossible to use.

Can anyone confirm or deny the "non-glare" finish allegation?

It's not easy to help you when you're vague like that. You could share what Mac you have, or you could look at the inputs this monitor has and probably figure it out for yourself.

This has the sweet, sweet trio of VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs. You can get a display port adapter from Apple (although I suggest Monoprice) that can drive any one of the 3. HDMI is probably the best avenue, but YMMV.

But, you hate your Air and want to rid yourself of it, so why am I talking to you? Me so silly.

It's an off brand but the reviews on it are quite good. I've seen more than one 1080p monitor in the 21.5 to 23" range on sale for $120 or so in the last few weeks.

And assuming that the "famous maker" rhymes with fuel-it slackard, I'd rather have a no-name than their junk, especially their castoff disowned junk.



However this one does have an HDMI input that the Hanspree doesn't

Picked up two last time this was up, spent three weekends trying to get them to work and was on the verge of trying to return them when I finally figured out there was something wrong with the driver package for my video card. I'm talking fresh installs of Windows, newly downloaded drivers that worked fine on my other monitors, and the latest HP drivers for these

Now that I have them working I love them to death.

I want to pick up a third to run three screens, anyone know if these can do that? I think I need some sort of active link adapter or something that converts one Displayport output to DVI right?

I bought two of these a few months ago. They're debranded HP 2311's so you can look that up for specs and reviews. HP logos have been removed or covered, there's a large "HP" pressed into the back case, covered with a black sticker.

Overall quality is good. They DO NOT come with cables but support one dvi, one vga, and one hdmi connection. Built-in menu controls are good but the auto switch only works when the display is turned on. The display has very little physical depth to it (the panel is very thin) so it can fit well into a confined space like the back of a computer desk area. NO vesa mounts, it has a spring-loaded vertically-adjustable base, and can be tilted for proper viewing angle.

Brightness, color, contrast, I have no complaints with its performance. The only problem I have ran into, and I see others have this issue too, is it is VERY LIGHT, light enough to set ON your closed lid laptop without risk. But the power button is on the underside of the right edge, and it has a good resistance to it, so you lift the monitor up when trying to turn it on or off unless you hold it down with your other hand. It's a minor issue, just a design blip. So overall, it's a good value for the price.

If I had to tweak the design, I'd make the power button a touch-switch on the front instead of under the right edge, and I'd also add a "source switch" touch button, changing sources requires digging several menus deep (inconvenient) and I'm using it for two different machines.
