12 Reasons Against

Poor Connectivity

One HP W2072a reviewer wrote in their reviews that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Ravinder Sirohi said in their review of the HP W2072a on Amazon “Has no HDMI port, have to buy converter” however they still scored it 4 stars.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Viewsonic VA2265[plb_2778955_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
