The Good Attractive looks; strong overall image quality; HDCP-compatibility lets you watch protected HD movies.
The Bad Less-than-stellar HD movie playback quality; HP's software continues to be a work-in-progress.
The Bottom Line It's a little shy on features, and we wouldn't recommend the HP w2007 for HD movie watching. Then again, we wouldn't suggest you use any 20-inch LCD for that purpose. What we did like was the overall image quality of this display, which we found outstanding, and it's ultimately what saves the monitor.
Similar to its larger, 22-inch line mate, the 20-inch HP w2007 wide-screen LCD delivers high image quality and an attractive design, and with only a small price premium compared to other displays in its class. The $260 w2007 is a simpler model than HP's w2207, although both units offer HDCP compliance for watching protected HD content. The My Display software bundled with both displays still doesn't really function properly, but that's a minor ding against this otherwise polished LCD. You can find less-expensive 20-inch wide-screen displays on the market, but few produce as sound an image, at least for general computing. If you're looking for a small-scale HD movie display, you'd do better to keep looking.
The HP w2007 is essentially a scaled-down version of the w2207. Both share a stylish, glossy black bezel with gray plastic trim, as well as a conveniently designed stand that doubles as a keyboard dock. Unlike the pricier w2207, the w2007 has a much more basic range of motion. You can only tilt the screen up and down from between minus-5 to plus-25 degrees, rather than the w2207 that tilts, moves forward and back, and whose screen also rotates 90 degrees. The w2007's limited range of motion is in keeping with its lower price, and we found we were happy enough with the adjustability it offers. We also like its onscreen display, which is simple to navigate.
