Summary: The glossy 1920x1200 screen really enhances movies and games, and we didn’t notice visual anomalies in either circumstance, but a couple issues reared their heads in DisplayMate. Banding appeared throughout the utility’s grayscale test screens, and we detected some color-tracking discrepancies. These issues weren’t apparent in most real-world content, but they did show themselves in high-res illustrations. Enough so, at least, to temper our recommendation.
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.
Excerpt: In a long series of newly designed LCD monitors, HP recently unveiled their latest addition – the w2408 24″ BrightView LCD display. The budget-friendly w2408 is geared toward the consumer market, however it is equally suitable for many non-extensive commercial applications. The w2408 has impressive technical specs, a 4-port USB 2.0 hub and costs a very reasonable $600 USD. Read our review and commentary on the w2408 to find out if you should be using it at home or work.
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
Summary: We'd be very happy to spend our own money on an HP w2408h. We're slightly put off by the glossy screen coating, but it more than makes up for this with exceptional physical adjustability and image quality that is pleasing to the eye
Pros: Horizontal and portrait modes, Picture quality, Price
