Cnet.com.au rated the product 75 out of 100 and mentioned in their HP LA2205wg review on expert review site CNET.com.au “Despite a few build and design issues, HP's latest 22-inch monitor punches above its weight and is perfect for users looking for a budget, widescreen solution that is both versatile”.

11 Reasons Against

Poor Design

One HP LA2205wg reviewer reckoned that the HP LA2205wg was not a good design.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for more than a year have a built-in speaker, however the LA2205wg does not have a built-in speaker.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Viewsonic VX2263SMHL, the LG 24MB35PH, or the DELL UP2715K ($1,618.33).

2 Other reasons to consider the HP LA2205wg

Released Over a Year Ago

This HP PC monitor was released over a year ago.

LCD Display Type

The LA2205wg has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that have been available for more than a year. Most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the AOC I2481FXH ($149.58), or the HP Z24i ($249.99) which has better reviews.

If the display type of this HP LCD screen is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Samsung S22E450BW ($179.99) (LED and cheaper); or the Lenovo T2220 (LCD,LED and higher rated), or the AOC G2460VQ6 (LED and higher rated).
