Summary: In fact, we’d say the screen is as well rounded and no-nonsense as its trappings. Being a professional model, the L2045w is not equipped with HDCP and thus, like the ViewSonic model, is unable to play copy-protected high-definition content, such as commercial HD DVD and Blu-ray discs, so take heed.
Pros: Fully ergo adjustable; USB ports; fine performer.
Excerpt: When HP released the 20.1″ L2045w widescreen LCD monitor, they categorized it as a business-level LCD monitor. This classification hints that the L2045w is a lower-spec monitor reserved for boring desk jobs and monotonous Office-suite use. HP is seriously underselling their own product.
