4 Other reasons to consider the HP DreamColor Z24x

Released Over a Year Ago

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The DreamColor Z24x has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC display, which is the most common display resolution.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The DreamColor Z24x has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. Most LCD screens of a similar age and spec to it have an LED display type.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LCD Display and we think because of it's better review score, the HP Z Display Z24[plb_1590202_price], the Philips BDM3270[plb_2783117_price], and the Viewsonic VG2860MHL[plb_2884615_price] is also worth considering.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the HP ENVY 32[plb_2562671_price] (LED and cheaper); or the XF270HU[pl_3154384_price] (LED and higher rated), or the B326HULA[pl_3029905_price] (LED and higher rated) both from Acer.

Average Width

The DreamColor Z24x has a pretty typical width (559.4 millimeters) compared to most of the other LCD screens of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 559.4mm wide LCD screens currently available including the HP Z Display Z24[plb_1590202_price] which has better reviews.
