The Good The HP 2311x includes the trifecta of connection options, all placed in an easily accessible spot. Don't expect world-beating performance, but for $230 it's quite good and even more impressive currently from Amazon.com for $180.
The Bad The monitor has no ergonomic support beyond tilt, its Movie and Gaming presets are too dark, and it has a plastic-feeling build quality. Some audio options would have been useful.
The Bottom Line The HP 2311x is a great monitor deal, with good performance and a great assortment of connections for its price.
When considering a new purchase, the importance of price can't be understated. Just attaching a low sticker price to a product can make something not even on your radar suddenly become a must-have. If, like me, you were a Steam customer during the holiday, you'll know exactly what I mean.
For large purchases, however, functionality takes precedence over price. At least for me it does. I've just been burned too many times going with the cheaper alternative only to be unsatisfied by the experience it provided me.
The HP 2311x got a lot of attention on CNET last year from you guys when Amazon.com started selling it for $180. It's since dropped even lower. I imagine it's not just the price that intrigued potential buyers, but also the range of connection options.
