3 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

HP is one of the superior PC screen manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and HP also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

Has Two Cables Included

The HP L2208w has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to it. This PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the L2208w. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the comparable spec PC displays that were launched more than two years ago the widths range from 50mm to 6,500mm. With a width of only 514 millimeters, the HP L2208w is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP L2208w does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most comparable spec PC screens that have been around for a similar time to the L2208w are not 3D compatible. The HP L2208w is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC D2769, or the Asus VG236 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP L2208w does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors of a similar type and age to the L2208w also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the 272P4QPJKEB, or the 241P4QPY both from Philips which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP L2208w does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the L2208w also do not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2713H ($682.40), or the U2413 ($450.99) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the HP L2208w

Released Over Four Years Ago
