2 Reasons For for Choosing the HP Compaq LE2202

Larger Display Resolution

The HP Compaq LE2202 has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the Acer KA S220, the DELL Professional P2412H and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK, which is twice as large display resolution as the Asus VE198TL (1440 x 900 (WXGA+) pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Ultra High (3000000:1) Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The HP Compaq LE2202 has an ultra high (3000000:1) dynamic contrast ratio (as are the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198TL and the DELL Professional P2412H), however the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK only has a very high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the HP Compaq LE2202

Smaller Display Diagonal

The HP Compaq LE2202 has a display diagonal of 21.5" (as does the Acer KA S220), but the Asus VE198TL is a 19" PC monitor (2.5" smaller), the DELL Professional P2412H is a 24" PC monitor (2.5" bigger) and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is a 27" PC monitor (5.5" bigger). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The HP Compaq LE2202 is a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198TL and the DELL Professional P2412H. That's 18° narrower than the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK (178°). More ...

The vertical viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the screen can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

8° Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The HP Compaq LE2202 has a horizontal viewing angle of 170° (as do the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198TL and the DELL Professional P2412H), but the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (8° wider). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

3 Times Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The HP Compaq LE2202 has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the DELL Professional P2412H and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK, which is 3 times lower typical contrast ratio of the Acer KA S220 and the Asus VE198TL (ultra high). More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The HP Compaq LE2202 does not have a built-in speaker (As do the the Acer KA S220 and the DELL Professional P2412H), whereas the Asus VE198TL and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK do. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Worse Kagoo Score

The HP Compaq LE2202 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, but the Acer KA S220 scored 81, the Asus VE198TL scored 84 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK scored 80.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the HP Compaq LE2202, however 2 retailers sell the Asus VE198TL and 3 shops sell the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over One Year Older

The HP Compaq LE2202 is older than the DELL Professional P2412H by 16 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 16%

Over five years the running costs of the HP Compaq LE2202 are $64 which is $9 more than the Acer KA S220. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

HP PC monitors have an average rating of only 92.7%, however Acer has an average rating of 94.4%, Asus has an average rating of 95% and DELL has an average rating of 93.9%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Compaq LE2202 in the US is $0.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the DELL Professional P2412H

Larger Display Resolution

The DELL Professional P2412H has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the Acer KA S220, the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK, which is twice as large display resolution as the Asus VE198TL (1440 x 900 (WXGA+) pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Ultra High (2000000:1) Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The DELL Professional P2412H has an ultra high (2000000:1) dynamic contrast ratio (as are the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198TL and the HP Compaq LE2202), but the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK only has a very high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

16 Months Newer

The DELL Professional P2412H is two years newer than the Acer KA S220, three years newer than the Asus VE198TL, 16 months newer than the HP Compaq LE2202 and two years newer than the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK
