    First, let’s get the obvious out of the way. There’s only one full-size displayport (DP) input. A quirk with DP inputs is that they’ll generally only work with DP sources. So, while you can convert from a DP output to an hdmi or dvi with a cheap, passive converter, to convert from hdmi or dvi to DP requires an expensive (>$50), active converter. So, if you don’t have a computer with a DP output, you should probably stop reading now and look for something else. HP bills this as a laptop monitor, as many laptops from the past few years come with either a full-size or mini DP (thunderbolt is backwards-compatible). Many discrete GPUs also come with DP outputs. And yes, 1 hdmi input would’ve been more useful.

    As for the monitor itself, it’s a 5000:1 static contrast MVA panel. IPS and TN panels generally top out at 1000:1, and other MVA monitors by Asus or BenQ are currently around 3000:1 (though 5000:1 will arrive later this year). I don’t know if the HP panel I received is actually 5000:1, but I do know it’s the highest contrast LCD I’ve ever laid eyes on. Even cranked up to full brightness, the black levels are comparable to my macbook’s at minimum brightness. For every LCD I’ve ever owned, the blacks eventually become grey as you turn up the brightness. On this monitor, it stays very black, and that’s kind of incredible.

    Random observations:
    – The response time isn’t very good, so if you plan to do a lot of 60fps gaming, look elsewhere. For movies and tv shows, it’s perfectly adequate and I didn’t notice ghosting any worse than my other LCDs.
    – As it’s an MVA panel, it also has much better viewing angles than TN, though not quite as good as IPS.
    – There’s no VESA mount.
    – The electronics are housed beneath the screen, so while the bezel along the top and sides is fairly thin, the bottom bezel is quite large.
    – Depth-wise, the monitor is incredibly thin, and overall very light.
    – Windows update will download an ICC profile, and OS X has one as well. I only made minor adjustments within the OS-level calibration tools, but I don’t do color-sensitive work.
    – There’s no on-screen display, only a power button, brightness up/down, and a small LED that is always on.
    – My particular unit has no dead pixels, or light bleed, and is well constructed.

    Great laptop monitor!, March 31, 2012

    This review is from: HP L2201X 21.5-Inch Led Monitor (Personal Computers)

    This monitor is extremely thin, the screen looks just as good as that of my fairly new MacBook Pro, and I can view it from much wider angles than my previous monitors. I especially like the simplicity of the controls (basically, just buttons for power and brightness +/-) without the need to use clunky menus like most monitors require. It really seems like this was made for laptops, just make sure you have a laptop with a full-sized DisplayPort connector, or else you’ll need to buy an adapter.

    I was kind of wary regarding the design when I first saw it, but the arm that props it up is solid and tight- its an extremely sturdy monitor. Honestly, it does seem like it goes well with my MacBook Pro considering the design, and I would recommend this highly to anyone with a technologically mobile lifestyle (:

    Also, I purchased this monitor from ANTOnline ($159.99, free shipping, no tax), and they managed to get it to me within 5 days. That’s pretty good service, considering I was expecting it in twice that time with the free shipping option.

    HP EPIC FAIL PRODUCT, June 7, 2012

    This product is probably the biggest FAIL HP has ever produced. Imagine making a monitor that doesn’t work with any PCs or laptop. I recently built a new gaming desktop with the most up to date video card (does not have a displayport), this monitor was no compatible with my desktop even after purchasing all the adapters known to man. My laptop is a brand new dell xps 15z, top of the line in 2011 (no displayport) not compatible even after all the adapters. I will never again purchase another HP product. Given me more trouble then it is worth. I rather spend more to have less technical issues. Life is about how simple you can make it, HP makes my life hell everytime i try their products.
