Great monitor, great price, but...

N. Wright, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this monitor (not at Amazon) in Sept 2011. The set up was incredibly easy, the images are sharp, and this would be a great monitor - with one exception - the cord that came with it after about 2 months started not quite fitting tightly enough; and with the slightest vibration or movement, the screen goes black. I have had to continually push the cord up into the monitor so it stays connected and the picture comes back.

Should have read the details before I bought it.

redarene, Amazon
5 April 2012
  • Summary: This product has a great screen but I wish I would have checked the details because it does not have sound. I have to get speakers separately. This will be my next purchase along with a new mouse. Will read the details and do the research before I do that. Otherwise, I like this product.

Beware Vertical/Horizontal Neon Lights Appear

Catherine Jean Rose "Aye for Detail", Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: First week I owned this monitor a strange (vertical) purple neon light appeared. I exchanged in store for another identical monitor. Four months later several vertical and horizontal neon lights emerged. Exchanged again. Aside from these problems, it's a good clear picture.

Price high

Sk, Amazon
14 October 2011
  • Summary: Though this screen is good. I would say we can get better models for the same price. I think I was little hurry to book it online without looking around. Amazon should reduce price to somewhere around 85$. Then it's worth for money.

Works OK BUT quality problem

mskrisclark "mskrisclark", Amazon
4 March 2011
  • Summary: I have to get used to a wide screen monitor. To me the wide screen is wasted on a monitor UNLESS you are watching a DVD. I rarely do, so the effect is wasted. NO instruction book with it OF COURSE. Just a large page which is supposed to be FOR you to install & set up. Mine came with a weird cable that DOES NOT FIT ANYWHERE ON MY OLD HP COMPUTER. As said NO instruction book. So, HP what is the deal with this cable.

Solid mid-range buy

furytisiphone, Ebay
22 February 2011
  • Summary: This is a solid mid-range monitor. The picture is clear and sharp, and the brightness adjusts quite high. However, the stand is not adjustable, so plan desk / chair / wall angles accordingly. Front-panel controls are a bit awkwardly placed, but they look nice. VGA and DVI ports are positioned for neat cable management. Max resolution is 1600x900.

Good resolution but strange flickering when laptop plugged in

cgey, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: I have a Dell E6410 laptop and for whatever reason, when the laptop is plugged in, there is a slight flickering of the monitor. It is generally only perceptible when the screen has lots of a solid color (especially in greys). But while I don't really notice it typing, I seem to get more headaches. However, when I do not plug in the laptop, there is no flickering. I've tried multiple AC adapters and tried plugging them in different outlets, and the problem persists.

Excellent Value

Kindle Customer, Amazon
19 December 2010
  • Summary: I handle computer issues at my job and have installed five HP-S2031 monitors before buying one for myself. I was planning on adding an additional monitor and found an in store offer of $99.95. Just as at work, the three pieces (the stand has two parts that snap together, which snap into the base) installed quickly and easily. Typical of most new monitors it has a very bright display.
