Conclusion: 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.
Pros: DVI, VGA and HDMI inputs, Understated, low-key design, Convincing 3D performance
Cons: Horizontal stripes from polarizing filter, Greenish tint out of the box, Average brightness diminished by 3D glasses, Not many settings to tweak
Conclusion: The HP 2311gt is an affordable 23-inch monitor with 3D capabilities. Its color quality and 3D depth are quite good but it has trouble displaying very light grays and the picture loses its luster when viewed from an angle.
Pros: Reasonably priced. Good color and 3D performance. Two sets of 3D glasses included.
Cons: Narrow viewing angles. 2D-3D conversion not very convincing. Weak light grayscale performance.
