Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the Z24n only have one DisplayPort, however the HP Z24n has two DisplayPorts.
+6 More reasons for
Quite Large Color Gamut
The average color gamut of comparable spec PC displays that were released more than a year ago is 83%, and the color gamuts range from 68% to 110%. The HP Z24n has one of the larger color gamuts (99 percent) amongst medium monitors of this age.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The HP Z24n is a four USB 3.0 port LCD screen. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.
Fairly Bright Display Brightness
The HP Z24n has one of the brighter display brightness (300 candellas per square meter) amongst medium monitors of this age. The dimmest display brightness of similar spec PC screens that have been around for more than a year is 25 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,700 cd/m².
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 480 x 272|1600 x 900|1024 x 768 (XGA)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 720 (HD 720)|1366 Ñ 768|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many PC displays that were released around the same time as it.
Medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the Z24n have depths of between 15mm and 700mm, and the average depth is 89mm. At only 49.3 millimeters, the HP Z24n is quite shallow compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were released one year ago.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The HP Z24n does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens of this type and age do have a built-in speaker.
The HP Z24n does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC screens of this age and spec also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 241P6 which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most PC monitors that were launched more than a year ago do not have an integrated card reader. The HP Z24n is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other PC displays of a comparable type and age to the Z24n, the HP Z24n is not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the iiyama B2783QSU-B1, or the Acer XB240H ($785.54).
+5 More reasons against
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This LCD screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many PC screens that are a similar age to it.
With a weight of 5.8 kilograms, the HP Z24n is one of the heavier medium monitors that came out more than a year ago amongst PC monitors of this age. The weights of PC screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z24n range from 2.3g to 79kg.
Quite High Maximum Power Consumption
The maximum power consumptions of flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the Z24n range from 16W to 170W. At 70 Watts, the HP Z24n has a fairly high maximum power consumption compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the Z24n.
Fairly Slow Response Time
With a response time of 8 milliseconds, the HP Z24n has a fairly slow response time compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the Z24n. Medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the Z24n have response times of between 1ms and 40ms, and the average response time is 5.8ms.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z24n
Released Over a Year Ago
This flatpanel monitor was released over a year ago.
LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of this type and age.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer G257HU ($221.99).
1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution
The most display resolution of the HP Z24n is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels currently available including the Eizo EV2455, or the HP EliteDisplay E241 which has a better Rating.
+3 Other reasons
