10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP Z2 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the Z2.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq BL2711 ($432.99), the iiyama XB2779QS-W1, or the Acer BX320HK which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than a year, the HP Z2 does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Philips 241P6VPJKEB.

Not 3D Compatible

The HP Z2 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays of this age and spec are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Asus PG278Q ($450.00) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the Z2, the HP Z2 does not have an integrated card reader.
