    Great budget Monitor, June 10, 2010

    This review is from: HP 2010i 20-Inch Diagonal HD Ready LCD Monitor – Black (Personal Computers)

    Great Design, beautiful look
    Cristal Clear Text and Image
    Great Color richness
    Great color accuracy
    no eye strain
    tilt adjusting
    matte finish(I prefer matte to glossy)
    Energy Star qualified (25W maximum)
    100mm x 100mm screw-mount

    No height adjustment.
    no HDMI
    sub per speaker
    Not very good vertical viewing angle
    HP Ads is too sticky

    For this size monitor, I think 1600*900 is the ideal size otherwise the text size (1920*1080) will appear too small.

    Comparing to 2009m:
    2009m is the 2009 model. it is not energy star efficient qualified. it is glossy finish. It does not have 100X100 mount. For 20$ more, I would go for 2010i.

    Comparing to 2210m:
    The 21.5′ 2210m is 1920*1080 full HD with HDMI input and is gloss screen. First of all, 2210m is a great monitor if you like gloss screen and are used to relatively small character size. However, if I have extra cash and if I like glossy screen, I would go for a larger screen such as 2310m or 2509m since the character size is simply too small for me on 2210m than that on 2010i.

    Comparing to ViewSonic’s VX2250WM-LED 22-Inch
    I was also able to compare it to ViewSonic VX2250WM-LED. First of all, I don’t think led tech will add better display experience to a monitor but make it a lower power consumption and a lighter body. Considering the color richness and color accuracy, I would like to vote for 2010i because the color on VX2250WM-LED appears to me wash-out and a little weak. The built quality of 2010i is also better. But if you want a lighter display with a higher resolution at a reasonable price, you may want to go with VX2250WM-LED.

    Comparing to Samsung 2333SW
    I also own Samsung 2333SW. Even if it is full HD, the color is so weak comparing to HP 2010i. The most important thing is that I always feel eye strain on the Samsung 2333SW. I just feel so comfortable working on the HP monitor.

    update (11/02/2010): Comparing to HP S2031
    I made a dual setup using HP 2010i and HP S2031. I got the HP S2031 from HP for a huge discount. The HP 2010i has an overall better build quality than that of HP S2031. The display experience on two monitors are quite similar except that the text character on HP S2031 has a barely noticeable greenish cast. For under $100, I would go for HP S2031.

    Character size:
    The character size appears larger on this monitor than that on Samsung 2333Sw 23″(1920*1080) monitor and that on 2210m. You may like this if your eyesight is not as good as before. For 21.5″ and 23″ monitor, I have to adjust the text size to medium (125%) to feel all right. But on this, default 100% text size appears just perfect for me.

    If you are looking for a budget monitor best used for online browsing, text editing, movie playing, and photo editing, this would be a great buy. Large screen or higher resolution is not always a better choice and it really depends on your needs. If I really want to get a full 1080P experience, I would watch the movie on my Samsung 46″ HDTV. After comparing different brands and models, when I sit in front of my desk working on something, this is the most comfortable screen that I ever had. I just feel the crystal clarity at every second…

    Buyer attention: removing sticker from top bezel of 2010i can be a pain since the glue residue is very strong as the other reviewers pointed out. I also observed that other HP 20** series monitors received many negative reviews only because of this. HP should take serious consideration on this. Here is a tip : “Removal of advertising sticker from top bezel of HP monitors at HP Support Forum”: Check out comments section below.

    About HP consumer monitor 2*** model:

    Have been doing research on hp monitor for a while. I went to Costco to check also. Personally, I prefer the ‘i’ version to the ‘m’ version since I don’t like the glossy finish. Even with the anti-glare coating, I still see things or myself clear on the screen. I feel eye strain too (the most important thing). I wish they had a bigger screen model. Unfortunately, they don’t have the corresponding 2310i, 2510i, 2710i in US(only available in UK). They do have the 2310m, 2509m,2710m in US, but they are glossy finish. the only downside with the i version is there is no hdmi input.

    25 means 25″
    09 means 2009 model
    m indicates glossy finish

    Replaced my 2009m, July 21, 2010
    Sean (Earth) –

    This review is from: HP 2010i 20-Inch Diagonal HD Ready LCD Monitor – Black (Personal Computers)

    As others have and will say, this is a great monitor. I bought two of these. One 2010i is cabled using DVI and the other is cabled with both DVI and VGA. Very sharp image with excellent color definition for both types of connection. I use it mainly for business apps, with the occasional bit of PC gaming and it’s absolutely superb for everything I need it for.

    At a price hovering around the $140 mark, this screen represents great value for money too. I replaced an HP 2009m and a ViewSonic VX710. There was nothing wrong with the 2009m (or the ViewSonic for that matter), but I hated the glossy screen finish of the 2009m. If I’d wanted a mirror, I’d have bought a mirror. The 2010i has the matte screen finish which obviously doesn’t pick up room light sources and reflections like the 2009m does. Much better!

    However, there are a few things about the 2010i which bug me and are worth noting.

    1. The power button is located near the bottom right corner (same as the 2009m). It often needs several presses before it responds to being switched on/off. I have both my 2010i screens mounted using the “Dual LCD Monitor Stand desk clamp” (available via Tyke Supply through Amazon). They look great, but adjusting the tilt means I need to grab the lower bottom edges of the screen which, more often than not, turns the screen off. A bit annoying, but not a deal breaker.

    2. When I use the Source button to switch from DVI to VGA, a “Monitor Status” box appears telling me it’s scanning for input signals. I know that’s what it’s doing – I don’t need to be told and it doesn’t have to obliterate half the screen with an obvious and annoying message! Maybe you can turn that off, but I haven’t found that option yet.

    3. Some genius at HP decided it would be a great idea to place a long sticker along the top edge of the plastic screen surround. It’s the usual stuff…HP logo, screen resolution stats, connection types, etc. All the things you already know, but OK. No big deal to just peel it off, right? Wrong! The glue HP used is so strong that it’s left behind when you peel the sticker off. So far I have tried duct tape, WD-40 and Goo Gone and the glue is still there. The duct tape didn’t lift any of the glue off, the WD-40 just spread the glue around and the Goo Gone didn’t do anything. I’m absolutely paranoid about getting these chemicals on the LCD screen itself too. Why do we need a sticker and if we have to have one, why use the same glue they use to build roads? And yes, I did peel the sticker very carefully, but it didn’t do any good. Totally asinine.

    So, if you want a great LCD screen for an awesome price and a glue cleanup job that’ll sap your will to live, the 2010i is for you.

    Monitor and residue removal hint, October 13, 2010

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: HP 2010i 20-Inch Diagonal HD Ready LCD Monitor – Black (Personal Computers)

    As others have noted, this is a bright, well sized, and crystal clear monitor. I appreciate the matte finish screen that eliminates glare. The wide screen is handy when displaying two documents, photos, or tax forms side by side. For those of us who are challenged by progressive bifocals, I recommend this monitor.

    1. When ordering this monitor,and if your computer has a DVI-D output, order a DVI-D connector at the same time to save some cash. Amazon’s price is much cheaper than Radio Shack (I found out after the monitor arrived).

    2. I discovered several years ago a residue removal technique that works on all those pesky super sticky labels manufacturers put on everything from pots & pans to computer monitors. Use the label itself to remove the residue. Peel the label off carefully. Then blot (with a little pressure) the sticky residue with the sticky side of the label. For some reason the residue has an affinity for the original label. Perhaps because glue formulas vary. I did this with the HP label and got all the residue off in about three minutes with no damage. Hope this helps.
