Wide viewing angle
Sure, the HP 2311xi's In-Plane Switching panel affords it wider viewing angles than what most 23 inchers enjoy, but that's not what makes it a compelling potential purchase. It's the fact that it has this powerful IPS panel with a price starting at a low $240. That's cheaper than even some Twisted Nematic (TN) monitors, which usually sport pretty low prices.
Great IPS monitor
Moved to a dual monitor system and I wanted monitors with an IPS panel display (best for photo editing). I was a tad sceptical because of the relatively low price, but higher end IPS monitors can run $500+ each. Since I was buying 2, I thought I would try the HP 2311xi, and it turns out that I made a good decision. This is a great monitor!
Nice IPS monitor for the price, but there are caveats
My reliable HP 2509m monitor got the black screen of death after 3 years of use. I began researching IPS monitors and I had narrowed my selections to Asus, Dell and Viewsonic, but at the last moment HP released the Xi series of IPS monitors with great specs: an IPS LED-lit panel with an almost bezeless screen, with HDMI, DVI and VGA, all for less than the price of competitors I researched.
HP's new ZR2440w makes some significant improvements over the past ZR24w. It is much slimmer and probably one of the most energy efficient 24-inch displays on the market. They have even added the much needed HDMI port. The downside is that it isn't as good for color as the past models or the competition. The result is a great general purpose monitor for someone that is energy conscious or wants a nice compact display.
Not many settings to tweak.
As a 2D display, the HP 2311gt just looks kind of dull. Not irredeemably so, but the fact remains that you can get a better looking monitor for less if you're not totally sold on the whole 3D thing. Its passive 3D mode goes a long way in improving impressions, but you should be prepared to make extensive use of 3D to make its $270 price tag feel worthwhile.
Thin, space-saving profile
The HP x2301 is a razor thin 23-inch LCD monitor that will dress up even the dreariest of desktops. It does a good job of displaying small text and delivers evenly saturated colors and artifact-free video but has trouble displaying light and dark steps of the grayscale and loses luminance when viewed from an angle.
Glossy piano black surfaces pick up fingerprints and dust easily
The 2310e is a higher-end 23" consumer desktop monitor from HP. It features a glossy black finish, touch controls, and an ultra-thin form factor. The LED-backlit LCD screen features a 1080p resolution and 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
Responsive touch controls
Cost-wise, the 23-inch HP 2310e is reasonably priced at S$449, but it is definitely not the cheapest one around (BenQ V2410 goes at S$399 a pop). Nonetheless, the monitor is a head-turner, with a rounded and more friendly-looking design. It is also extremely, further adding to the aesthetics. Above all, what we also liked about the monitor is that it comes with user-friendly controls, and a simple touch-based navigational interface.
Includes DisplayPort Connector
Those looking for a energy efficient and environmentally friendly display should certainly take a look at the HP 2310e display. The 23-inch panel with its LED backlit certainly consume very little energy yet still provides it with a very nice color and brightness level. The panel also has the advantage of being one of very few that support the DisplayPort connector which is useful for those wanting to use AMD's EyeFinity technology.
General use screen for web browsing
Iâ?? ve been using the 2310e for both business, gaming and Blu-ray watching pretty steadily for the last couple of months and have been satisfied with the results. Frankly, I enjoyed movies on the panel the most, but I can fully recommend it as a general use screen for web browsing. If being green is your thing, you can also be happy that the HP 2310e leaves a small footprint using just 20 watts of power most of the time.
