The Good Solid base. Acceptable image quality. Not great at extreme angles. The Bottom Line HP's Lw delivers a cheap but acceptable experience for users on a tight budget who don't want to risk a "no-name" brand display.
Visit for details. It's a shift that the HP Lw flatly ignores. This is an LCD monitor that looks all the part of a PC monitor, with plenty of thick chunky lines, a minimum of smoothing and absolutely no piano black to be seen anywhere.
In many ways it's a refreshing change of pace, but it's also a stark reality check: the Lw is a budget monitor. While it's definitely possible to get inch displays at prices cheaper than HP's Lw, you do run the risk of getting a lower quality image.
The Lw's ordinary design is a solid one that should stand a few knocks. It also has a very solid base that keeps it level. We've seen more than a few monitors that try to look flash with "funky" bases that might catch the eye Features The Lw measures in at x 59 x millimetres. It's a widescreen LCD monitor with a top resolution of 1, x pixels, and a claimed refresh rate of 5ms. That's not spectacularly fast, and those who live for fast refresh rates such as many PC gamers may wish to look elsewhere.
For those who just need a monitor for regular computer use, 5ms is certainly fast enough. There's one significant drawback that you should be aware of with the Lw -- it comes only with a VGA port.
Our review sample came with a VGA cable already in place, but that could have been a function of it being a review unit. Performance When we first connected the Lw up to our test PC it quickly performed an automatic calibration and selected the top resolution.
To be honest, though, 1, x isn't going to tax many systems, and unless you have a particular need for other resolutions, it's probably going to stay on that setting for all of its natural life. The OSD menu is functional rather than pretty, but aside from checking its basic functionality we didn't need to refer to it post initial calibration.
We tested the Lw both with Displaymate and a variety of real-world computing tasks. For the most part and bearing in mind the relatively low asking price of the Lw it performed adequately.
We did notice the Lw's shallow viewing angles; if you're sitting in front of the Lw you won't really notice it, but those peering over your shoulder certainly will, the unit's images displaying a larger tendency to wash out than we'd typically like.
There's no denying that HP's attached a price premium to the Lw, purely because it carries a little HP badge on the side. If you want to buy a cheaper LCD, there are plenty about -- even models larger than inch widescreen if you hunt around a bit. The market for the Lw is pretty clearly for those who want that brand name certainty more than they do size or other features.
The inch Samsung CF is a great size for gaming, pairs well with midrange Radeon The inch UltraSharp UD monitor performs well, but don't overpay for it. Dell's SDG budget gaming monitor delivers on high refresh rates and Nvidia features. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.
