HP W208SA LED Backlit LCD Monitor Review

HP W2082a Specification

Display: HP W2082a Monitor has a flat display panel with LED Backlit screen. This is made with arsenic-free glass and a mercury-free LED panel.  

Resolution: This unit has highest resolution of 1600 x 900 screen resolution. That’s mean, it is an HD monitor, but it will not offer a Full HD experience. In 20-inch Backlit LCD screen with 60Hz refresh rate, a regular user will not see much difference and this monitor was not targeted for gamers or high-end users.

Aspect Ratio: This HP W2082a LCD Monitor has 16:9 aspect ratio. 16:9 aspect ratio is industry   standard now and unless the model is for any specific use, all company build their monitors in this aspect ratio. This aspect ratio is best for watching movies, HD tv channels, youtube videos as most of camera and camcorders shoot now in HD mode and this very same aspect ratio. As the monitor support 60Hz refresh rate, though it’s not Full HD, user will receive a quite good experience. So, if you are looking for Full HD, high-performance, extraordinary viewing experience, this is not your unit.

Contrast: Static Contrast ratio of 600:1 and a Dynamic contrast ratio of 1 Million:1 is pretty basic contrast. As this monitor is targeted for basic users, this contrast can be ok for user. But if you planning to see Sci-Fi movies or movie with a lot of graphics, you will miss some colors, but I bet, only very few users can really see the difference. The colors will not be very vibrant, that’s it.

Response Time: 5ms response time for this monitor is pretty good.
