CNET First Look
HP w2408h True Color WidescreenThe HP w2408h True Color Widescreen is a well-priced 24-inch monitor that looks stylish and performs well. Its lack of a DVI port is its only major stumbling block.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, this is Eric Franklin. I'm from CNET.com and this very pretty young thing right here sitting next to me is the HP w2408h True Color Widescreen. The overall look and design of the HP is very eye pleasing. They have this glossy bezel here, which houses this innovative and useful ambient light sensor. You'll also get a pivoting feature, but the screen does not rotate in any way. We saw a very good performance with the HP in movies and games, but we did notice some color and Grayscale problems in DisplayMate. And although this monitor includes HDMI, it lacks a DVI port and does not include DVI-to-HDMI cable. So if you wanna hook this thing up to a DVI graphics card, you're gonna have to invest in an adapter. If you can live with purchasing a DVI-to-HDMI cable on your own and you don't mind spending some time calibrating the color, the HP w2408h is a good choice. Once again, this is Eric Franklin and this has been the First Look at the HP w2408h. ^M00:01:03 [ Music ]
