Advantages: Easy to set-up, great picture
Disadvantages: The price!
We bought this monitor with our PC in January because it was on offer in Staples, £20 off if bought with the rest of the PC equipment, making it only £120 on its own. The price still equated to just over our budget but who says no to money off!
It's a 20 inch screen on a black plasticy background, on it's own in-built silver stand at the bottom, a nice curve to make it look modern and cool. It's an LCD monitor, which means little to me but may mean something to you. All I know and understand is that the picture quality is good, it's big enough for me to be able to do what I need to do on it, and it looks amazing!
It came with the rest of the PC and was chosen because it was made by HP, who we like a lot, and it was black like our tower. Once we'd sat it down on our PC desk on it's cool little leg, we had to set up the monitor and PC together. Setting it up was easy enough; all we had to do was plug it in, adjust the picture and quality to how we wanted it and that was that. On the right hand side underneath the bottom area there are 5 buttons; these change the settings, volume, and the very end one on the corner turns the screen off.
We've had it for 5 months now and it still looks good, we've gotten use to the hugeness of the screen compared to the laptop we use, and luckily I don't have to wear my glasses on it so that's another bonus for me. It's that big they're not necessary! The buttons underneath still work so nothing has malfunctioned, and there are no random black specks in the screen or picture so there is nothing wrong with the picture or display yet either.
It has been used almost non-stop since we got it and is still in almost mint condition, the picture is still as good as ever and its also surprisingly clean. HP are a well-known and well-loved brand so it's not like you can expect anything rubbish from them, they're all high-quality nowadays! Really worth the price aswell, and after looking at process as high as £300 for a couple inches longer, certainly a good bargain for me!
Summary: Nice little for a PC
