This monitor was included in a desktop PC package and so far I'm very happy with it.
The picture was very crisp straight from the box and no set up was required although this may be different if the monitor is bought as a stand alone rather than with a HP computer like in my case. I've never experienced any problem with picture quality regardless of what I am watching.
Both DVI and VGA connections are available and the monitor automatically looks which is relevant when it is turned on.
The monitor is easy to use and the menus are easy to navigate as the labelling is clear and you have a distinct 'Menu' and 'OK' button instead of fiddling around with various combinations which is often the case.
It has a sleek design in glossy black with a grey trim and does look quite smart. The monitor stand is also designed in such a way as to allow the keyboard to be pushed underneath it. It's a little advantage but it easily saves space on a cluttered desk like mine!
As for the negative, the back of the monitor is curved slightly and this doesn't allow for the fitting which make putting it on a bracket possibly. Therefore, as much as it does allow you to save space on your desk the monitor will always be on the desk and cannot be held against a wall or moveable bracket.
With 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and HD ready 1600 x 900 resolution, you'll get brilliant widescreen viewing. The 16:9 aspect ratio is perfect for watching movies, and the 5 ms response time reduces blur. Designed with the environment in mind, the HP 2010i LCD monitor is Energy Star qualified and lowers power consumption with the two-lamp panel. So you'll save money and electricity without compromising on image quality. The tilt-and-swivel HP 2010i monitor ensures comfort, while QuickView modes help optimize the display for videos, photos or games. A slim profile and built-in speakers mean you'll have plenty of desk space left over.
