7 Reasons Against
Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port
The EliteDisplay E202 is a one USB Type-A downstream port PC monitor.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The HP EliteDisplay E202 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that came out in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the LG 19MB35PM ($174.00), or the Asus BE209QLB is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The EliteDisplay E202 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other small monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the EliteDisplay E202 also do not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader which you might want to look at including the ProDVX M104.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The EliteDisplay E202 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other new small monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
+4 More reasons against
Not 3D Compatible
The EliteDisplay E202 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other small monitors that have been around for the last year are also not 3D compatible.
Across all the similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for the last year the widths range from 140mm to 480mm, and the average width is 430mm. At 479 millimeters, the HP EliteDisplay E202 is quite wide compared to most of the other small monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the EliteDisplay E202.
Alternative 479mm wide LCD screens currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper LCD screens such as the Philips 200S4LYMB.
If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the DELL P2014H ($69.99) (470.5mm) which also has a higher Rating.
Fairly Slow Response Time
Latest small monitors have response times of between 2ms and 14ms. The EliteDisplay E202 has one of the slower response times (7 milliseconds) amongst LCD screens of this age.

If the contrast ratio of this PC display is too low for you then you might want to consider the Asus BE209QLB (10000000:1 and cheaper).
