6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most comparable spec PC screens that have been around for a similar time to the x2401 do not have a built-in speaker. The HP x2401 is no exception to this as it too does 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 Eizo FlexScan EV2736W[plb_1720119_price], or the Philips BDM4065UC[plb_2889761_price]; or the iiyama XB3070WQS[plb_2403501_price] are also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The HP x2401 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the x2401 are also not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Samsung SMT-2232[plb_1414672_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other LCD screens that have been around for more than two years, the HP x2401 does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other PC displays which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to look at including the Philips C272P4QPKEW[plb_3027868_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP x2401 does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the x2401 also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the U3014[pl_1655695_price] both from DELL or the Benq PG2401[plb_2083439_price] which also has a higher rating.

Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the HP 2211[plb_1397010_price] (LED and cheaper), or the Asus PB287[plb_2323109_price] (LED and cheaper); or the Asus PB279[plb_2524515_price] (LED and higher rated).
