    Has good amount hz, color does not follow up

    I got this monitor for my brother, but I ended up giving it to my sister, as my brother did want it. My brother already had a second monitor but was wanting to upgrade. (His old monitor used to have 1024x768, and was square. It was clearly from the early 2000s. However, surprisingly enough, that old monitor had far more color range than this monitor! Ultimately, we decided that he would prefer to keep the color range, and use the older monitor. The image on this monitor is very washed out. The only way you don't get that sensation is if you put the brightness down drastically, there isn't much of a between. You're either squinting to see images and read words on a dark screen, or your eyes are hurting from how greyed out and washed out the screen is. This is the type of monitor doctors warn about when they say not to look at it for more than 30 minutes. The refresh rate is good. The response time is excellent, and up to par with modern monitors. The resolution is also good, and is actually the highest resoluution monitor in the house. ALl of these are good, but I would say to try to get something for at least 150$, and check the demos. I promise it will be worth it to choose from the demos, it will save you a life of eyestrain.

    Great for a Mac - with the right accessories

    Purchased this to go with my MacMini as I wanted an easy-to-read monitor that is also easy to move (I'm in transition between homes). As suggested by another customer in his review, I purchased the VGA to HDMI adapter. Got it set up and nothing happened - "no signal". I texted a Mac expert friend, and he said that I needed a different converter, probably one that would go in the Lightning port. He also asked if there was another output on the monitor. I sent him a picture, and he said "Yes! You've got a DVI output on the monitor" (not even mentioned in the specifications on the website). So, I returned the ineffective VGR to HDMI adapter, and for $5 more purchased a 6' DVI to HDMI cable. Worked as soon as I plugged it in. Victory! Monitor is terrific and just what I needed - with the right accessory.

    I have a desktop that I wanted to use only to watch a movie (it has a Blu-ray drive with Cyberlink PowerDVD 16) and I needed a full HD monitor and this was a very good deal. The program deals nicely with motion blur, so I don't have a problem with that with this monitor (or any monitor, I must say.) It is connected to my computer with a DVI connector. I am rating this monitor according to what I paid for which was under USD100. It is a terrific buy. This is not an OLED or a 4K monitor/television - and it is "merely" an LCD monitor which suits my needs. Easy to put together, and not very heavy. Thank you Best Buy for having this on sale at a very reasonable price.

    Great monitor for a laptop

    For over a year my laptop repeatedly would get a black screen issue sporadically, then every time I'd click on an internet browser. I discovered getting a new monitor would be one of 2 last resorts to resolving the issue. After exhausting just about every possible solution, I finally decided to see if the extra monitor would fix the issue. In the end, the new monitor was successfully able to bypass the black screen issue occurring to my laptop. Although, I needed to purchase an HDMI to VGA adapter as well(thank you employee who informed me of this). If you need an extra monitor for any reason this one works great!

    I bought this as a dual monitor for my HP envy so that I had more screen space to do school work and I love the size of the screen. I did have to get an HDMI to VGA adapter to hook it up to my laptop but I easily found one at Staples and hookup was very easy. It does not have a speaker but my laptop’s speaker is loud enough for me and the monitor definitely serves the purpose that I need it to. I wouldn’t say the quality of the picture is good for someone who wants this monitor to play games or watch movies but I works well for someone that just wants the extra screen space like me. (Purchased on Black Friday 2018)

    Extended View Monitor

    I bought this monitor so that I could work in extended view from my computer, and it serves its purpose quite well. When I work on projects, I am able to keep some of my materials on this screen as I continue to work on my Surface Book screen. Great price and works well. If you're looking for superb graphics, you may want to go with something else, but if you're looking for a satisfactory product at a very reasonable price for the purpose of getting work done, this is your monitor.

    Form, fit, and function is perfect for my home office. Great for viewing large multi-column worksheets . I don't use it to view television shows or play games so I can't comment on its performance for those functions. The monitor allows the user to select the "blue light" viewing type which is an awesome feature. Out of the box, the image was very bright and too intense for my viewing comfort but the blue light adjustment feature corrected that issue promptly. Great value!

    The price and quality of image are very good. The only three issues I have : 1 - The power chord isn't very secure at the plug in point on the screen and can loosen easily. 2 - There are no owners manuals or instructions with the unit and those on line are generic for multiple models containing little information. 3 - When attempting to register the product number with HP one is told that there is no such number and therefore cannot be registered.

    I bought two of these monitors to dock with my MacBook air. My only issue is that it has DVI and VGA connectors. For this to be a new monitor it should have HDMI. It has been a headache trying to convert the connections to connect both to the MacBook but I think I found a solution. The displays on the monitors are great 20 inches are a bit smaller than expected but food enough for a home office. Definitely a good buy for the price.

    I've have the monitor for a few days and I've had multiple problems, I use this monitor for playing games, shouldn't really have a problem, to be specific i set the resolution on the monitor to a bit low so i can get my performance and whenever i joined a game on ROBLOX the black bars on the side flickered white and black which was very noticeable it ended up fixing after a few days which is excellent for this monitor, i dont mind this incident at all considering the fact its 80 dollars get what you pay for, thank you hp.

    Although it may not be the highest grade monitor out there, it's a solid value if you need VESA mount capable monitor. I find the viewing angles and display to be fine. Text is clear and picture is acceptable. I needed a monitor fast that could go on an existing wall mount. Boy was surprised to find that a lot of what's on the market these days does not have that feature. So glad this one did. Not all HP does. I've always had good luck, long service life with them and Like the warranty too

    This monitor has very good resolution compared to the one it replaced. The only issue with it is that when you put your computer to sleep or shut down,a message comes on the screen that says "Input not found check cable". After several seconds it then says "Monitor going to sleep. Why it even flashes any messages at all is beyond me. Everyone knows the monitor will go to sleep when the computer sleeps.

    I needed a lightweight monitor for a wall mounted swing arm mount for a secondary PC (Mac Mini). It's only 1920 x 1080 but good enough for streaming. It does what I need it to do and the price was right. My only complaint is it only has VGA and DVI-D outputs. It should have had a HDMI out to make connecting to my Mac Mini easy but I ended up having to purchase a DVI-D to HDMI cable to connect, adding to the cost.

    Reliable HP Monitors

    I chose this particular monitor because I had an HP monitor prior to this replacement and it lasted for at least 4 years. When you purchase this particular model it is advisable to adjust the brightness and contrast since the screen is at the optimum brightness right out of the box and can be hard on the eyes. Otherwise this is a great replacement monitor with a stand that can be adjusted for better viewing on the screen.

    this monitor has a bigger screen then my old tube type monitor and takes up much less space. the color of the picture is great i just needed to tweak it to warm colors for video's. one of my movies for some strange reason plays with heads cut off. that did not happen with my old tube monitor, i can't figure out why this monitor is messing with this one movie. no other movie i have does this.

    When my wife's laptop screen failed to black, I offered her a standalone screen to salvage her computer. She seemed somewhat reluctant, but finally agreed. This HP monitor turned out to be the perfect remedy to her problem. She now enjoys working on her computer. The images are clear and bright and the bigger screen size is a welcome benefit. Her laptop can no longer travel with us, but that isn't very often anyway.

    although I did not end up keeping this as I got my old screen working after thinking it was dead, I did fall in love with it a bit. My current screen which is about 10 years old at least has terrible glare from the window behind me with this screen it wasn't a problem and the picture was spectacular I thought, but to keep this one when I got the one I already own working would have been wasteful in my eyes.

    This monitor makes working on big files easier and with a great image, much better than the regular laptop screen, now I'm getting used to working on it all week, and going back to a smaller screen during weekends, which takes some effort... this screen is beautiful even from behind... really recommended...

    Monitor. Bought this when it was on sale for $99. Can't beat the price. I needed this size to fit the space I had. Only had it a little while, but the colors are vibrant, the graphics distortion free. A snap to install. Does not need any tools to put together just snap in place. Has controls & power button on the lower right front. Could not be more pleased with this purchase.

    They're pretty basic monitors. Nothing special if you're looking to play games or watch movies, but for deployment in a work environment, this is a perfect choice. Not too big, not too small. I don't like the size of the bezels going around the sides, and the button placement leaves something to be desired, but for the average office user, these are great. Black finish is always worth a star, bumping this up from 3 to 4 stars. Overall: 4/5
