Summary: HP has taken the LG SIPS panel and made
a very impressive product. Multiple inputs, Picture-in-Picture
functionality, an excellent on screen menu system, above average
brightness and contrast, and a superior image over pretty much every
other LCD that I have used makes this monitor a must have. Other than
the slightly pink grays, color fidelity is very good. I use this LCD
every day, and I couldn’t be happier.
Pros: Large widescreen viewing, Excellent response time, Excellent image quality, Excellent movie reproduction, Highly adjustable, Excellent on screen menu functionality, Excellent input flexibility, Silver bezel grows on you, Fairly consistent backlight performance and saturation, Less expensive than Apple Cinema 23” Display
Cons: Slightly more expensive than other options, Blacks could be darker, Viewing angle a bit compressed, No cable management system, I can’t afford more of them, May cause jealousy with other family members
Conclusion: HP may have intended the L2335 for the graphic design market, but what they may not have realized is that hardcore gamers will be drooling over this monitor for their ultimate gaming setup. With a 16ms response rate, the L2335 plays games just as good, if not better, than traditional CRT monitors. Add to that the 16:9 widescreen format, component video input and a 1920×1200 native resolution and the L2335 will also make a fantastic HDTV display.
Pros: Perfect for graphic designers and gamers. Easy to setup, fantastic image quality
