HP Monitors

HP have been big players in the computing industry since its inception, not only manufacturing but also inventing a huge range of devices and accessories. One of their biggest ranges is their selection of computer monitors which comes in several distinct styles. The key to selecting one that is right for you is to take into consideration several key features.

Screen size

The screen size is measured in inches diagonally from the top left to the bottom right, not including the plastic frame. If you are currently using a monitor that you are happy with size wise, then measure it like this and get one that is the same or a similar size. However, if you are buying a monitor for the first time then it is worth paying attention to. A monitor the size of a large TV will totally dominate your desk and may be impractical, whereas one that is too small will make it hard to see. A monitor measuring 20 to 23 inches is usually a good starting point.

Resolution

The resolution is how many pixels the monitor displays and therefore how sharp the image is. 1080p monitors are very common for average sized monitors and are generally good quality, but much larger monitors (26 inches and above) may not produce as great an image, as the pixels are stretched further. The higher the resolution, the better the picture quality and the higher the price point. It is worth finding a sweet spot between performance and cost that suits your purposes. Home offices will usually settle with a lower resolution, whereas graphic designers and gamers will want higher resolutions.

Hardware options

Once you know an approximation of what size and resolution you want, you should also consider what kind of additional hardware you want. Many laptops come with built in speakers , wall mounts, extra USB ports or Anti-Glare technology.

These will inevitably raise the price tag but it is important to consider whether they are something you are looking for in a monitor.
