Excerpt: It might surprise you that the w2408 is the least expensive of the three LCDs here, because it seems to offer the most. It has a chic, shiny bezel like the Westinghouse—and a chic, shiny screen to match. The glossy surface can be real image booster, making colors appear more vibrant than they do on coated panels. But in a well-lit room the screen is like a mirror, reflecting you and everything else around, so consider your environment before buying.
Pros: Chic design; plenty of ergonomic adjustments and user controls; tons of USB and video ports; HDCP,
Cons: Glare-y screen; some greyscale banding and color-tracking problems.
Conclusion: The w2408 is a gorgeous LCD screen that has impressive specs, an attractive design and very pleasing performance for most users. Despite the anomalies visible at unusual viewing angles, the w2408 gave us crisp, lifelike colors, deep rich blacks and nice clean motion. For most common uses, the w2408 is a very nice choice. Professional users may want to look at one of HP’s pro-line LCD screens however. Even HP makes this clear in their product documentation.
Pros: Very competitive price; produces rich colors; 5ms response rate; good cable management
Cons: Inadequate speakers; viewing angles can affect on-screen colors; large footprint
Conclusion: Overall performance is very good, and it works out of the box with little in the way of set-up needed. The size makes this an idea accompaniment for those doing design work, or just wanting to view two A4 pages full size on the screen at one time. Having lived with the w2408h for some time, it is difficult return to a smaller screen as 24in just seems to be so natural.
Pros: Great picture, great size, adjustable
Cons: Built-in speaker terrible, minor audio interference
