HP W1907

HP's new 19-inch wide-screen LCD is very similar to its larger cousin, the W2007, offering the same core specs including a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 5-millisecond pixel response time, and a 300cd/m2 brightness rating. The W1907 features a lower native resolution at 1,440x900 (WXGA+). Both displays offer HP's BrightView technology, which results in a bright image and a glossy screen coating that's found on many laptop displays. The W1907 features both digital and analog video connections and 2-watt stereo speakers. It is also HDCP-compliant for viewing protected HD content.

The only adjustments the W1907 offers is swivel and tilt. By comparison, the 22-inch W2207 features a double-hinged base that lets you adjust the height of the screen and how close it is to you without propping it atop a stand or dragging it across your desk. The W1907 is an entertainment-oriented display; aside from the BrightView glossy coating that should make movies and photos more vibrant, it features a glossy, black bezel that apes the type of frame found on many plasma and LCD HDTVs. The gray base looks a lot like the simple, L-shaped base on Apple's Cinema Display and creates a space for you to stow your keyboard when not in use.

Compared with other 19-inch wide-screen LCDs, the HP W1907's price of $230 is competitive. We are awaiting an evaluation unit from HP and expect to publish a full review shortly that will include details on how the display fared on CNET Labs' image quality tests.
