Monitors have taken a step backwards since the 2009 & 2010i

Summary: My 2009i broke and I have to replace it with the 2010. Both have built-in speakers which is the purpose for this review! I actually appreciate the speakers HP and other mfgs used to build into monitors and am disappointed that they no longer do. I saw it as an energy savings and a way to reduce desk clutter by not needing separate speakers on my desk. If I want better sound I have headphones nearby.
Summary: I got this to go with my mac mini, and it is just the perfect size for my desk. The image is crisp and sharp, and the hooks ups easy to access--although once hooked up, you'll probably never have to unplug anything.
Useful as a backup or temp unit, otherwise worthless due to low rew.

Summary: This is a low res monitor. Suitable for a backup. Be aware that you must reset your systems resolution to no more than 1600 x 900 to even get the monitor to recognize the signal. (May have to start computer in safe mode and adjust resolution since this monitor will not work with higher res which all of us use.) It pales in comparison to any mid-high end monitor in sharpness and contrast(only 1,000:1). Worth about $50 in my estimation.
Summary: Picture quality is as good as any 20 inch monitor I have seen and the anti glare screen is a plus over the older 2009 monitor by HP. The style is nice too if you like the silver trim that matches last years offering by HP. But the internal speakers are just barely useful. Pay the extra bucks for a good set with a subwoofer if sound is important to you. I wish it had USB connectors but still nice for most applications.
Summary: La resolucion es muy buena y el tamaño tambien, y se puede mover para varios angulos, lo unico malo es el plastico que viene alrededor del monitor, por ningun motivo sacarlo ya que queda la hueva del pegamento y no sale con facilidad.
