Introducing Hanns.G’s swanky yet energy-saving HL series of LED monitors! Hanns.G’s HL series features the latest energy-saving direct backlight LED module, and saves approximately 30% more power compared to conventional backlight modules, while dramatically reducing the thickness and weight of the display. With Full HD 1080p resolution and crisp images and Hanns.G’s exclusive X-Contrast 15,000,000:1 ultra high contrast technology, the displays are capable of rendering images with more clarity and sharpness without “ghosting” so the resulting images will be easier on the viewers’ eyes due to the brighter display.

The exterior design for all HL series monitors is centered on the theme of “Compactness & Eco-Friendliness”. The use of streamline contours as a design accentuates the display’s thinness and exquisite quality regardless of the viewing angle. The unique slope design on the rear cover of the monitor highlights the aesthetics of fluidity in motion from different angles. These special features in the displays’ exterior design reflects Hanns.G’s respect and awe for natural ecology and instill a vitality into cold, unfeeling technological products.

  • newegg Hanns.G’s X-Contrast 15,000,000:1 Ultra High Contrast Technology Thanks to HANNSG’s exclusive X-Contrast technology, Hanns.G’s HL series presents sharp, crisp, and precise picture quality with a 15000000:1 ultra-high dynamic contrast ratio, resulting in darker black and brighter white.
  • newegg Simple, Elegant and Ultra-Slim Design Thinner than a dime, Hanns.G’s HL series features a simple yet elegant design that is emphasized by a glossy black bezel and an ultra slim profile. The unique slope design on the rear cover of the monitor highlights the aesthetics of fluidity in motion from different angles.
  • newegg LED Backlight Technology Featuring the LED backlight technology, Hanns.G’s HL series provides increased brightness, enhanced color saturation with less power consumption, minimizes eye fatigue and is more eco-friendly to the environment containing no halogen, mercury or lead, compared with a typical CCFL backlight.
  • newegg Full HD 1080p With a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 (16:9), Hanns.G’s HL series fully supports resolutions up to HDTV 1080p (1920x1080, progressive) for a truly high-definition experience.

5 out of 5 eggsIt displays

Pros: Good picture, easy to set up.

Cons: The power LED is comically bright. Haven't had issues with the stand, not sure why you'd need to remove it anyway. That said, I haven't tried adjusting the tilt because it feels like it's going to just snap. The menu buttons are difficult to see in any lighting. I know; I'm still trying to clean the tears off my keyboard.

Other Thoughts: If you see one of these at the store for less than the 225/229 models, it's a good screen and was only discontinued for a bad stand. I'll always buy from Hanns-G after this. Much better prices than a couple of other more popular brands. Love these nitpickers, too, taking a whole 2 eggs off for an unremovable stand. If this thing was still being sold I would have bought it instead of the HL225 because it costs less and I don't need the speakers or 'better' stand anyway. It's been 2 years and it works fine. Reds are bold, darks are dark, lights are light. 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor

Cons: No cons that I can think of

3 out of 5 eggsGood but not great

Pros: Light, easy set up, price, looks sleek, and great picture

Cons: The warranty sticker wraps around to the front, the stand is flimsy and not comply removable, and power button location and power cord seating lend to monitor shutting off every time i move it at all

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I wanted...

Pros: Everything... I chose this monitor because I needed to upgrade from my old 4:3 analog LED to a widescreen HD monitor. I was very patient trying to decide because I wanted something high quality, cost efficient & great looking. This monitor has all of that. I'm a person who reads tons of reviews and this was eventually my choice and I'm so happy I made it. If it's every restocked definitely get one!

Cons: My only "con" I could possibly come up with is that there isn't a composit input so I could play my xbox on it if I chose.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Power Supply Update

Pros: nothing

Cons: Bad Power Supply

Other Thoughts: Another update on my power supply saga. Called back Hanns-G to see if they had approved my request to have them pay shipping for my RMA (since I had already sent it back once and they had not fixed the problem). They had me check the voltage at my power outlets. I had a voltmeter and did that (I don't think they expected that). I was informed I need to call back in another 2 days to see if my request has been approved. These people are just crooks. I guess I will try to find an electronics recylcing place that will take the monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Think Ever

Pros: cheap, but worthless

Cons: Defective power supply, incompetent repair service

Unit had intermittent power problems from day 1;

I thought it had something to do with the power saving features/drivers/etc. It got worse continually until we sent it back to mfg. (it was bought before XMAS and by the time we it got really bad we were past the New Egg return period).

Item was returned to us with no fix; HannsG CS says "no defect found"; now it won't turn on at all. HannsG will issue a new RMA, but it's not worth paying again to ship it; I need to call again in 2-4 days to see if my request for free shipping has been approved.

Just a big hassle

1 out of 5 eggsDead Pixel

Pros: Good for the price.

Cons: Bought 2. One of them had a dead pixel which I exchanged for another one. The otherone also had a dead pixel.

The fact that 2 out of 3 monitors contained dead pixels tells me that I waisted my money. Don't know if they are going to last.

I had a bad feeling before buying from this unknown brand to me. But, I got what I deserve for going against my own instincts.

Dead pixels are an acceptable. The companies building these junks should have better quality assurance.

5 out of 5 eggsHave doubts? Don't.

Pros: Nice size widescreen display, more then awesome ratio, super clear image, high quality, no dead pixels.. nothing wrong.

Cons: I can see why some people have mentioned a wobbly stand, due to the neck being so small compared to the screens width, so it bounces side to side sometimes. As for people who want to wall mount it, the neck is attached to the screen - it would appear the only detachable part is the base of the stand. But since I'm not mounting it, that doesn't concern me.

Other Thoughts: When things aren't on crazy black Friday sales, it's hard to find the right product for the right price. Since these HannsG monitors are always so affordable, to be honest I was a bit worried about trying it. But it's better then expected, so I'm extremely pleased.

4 out of 5 eggsFor the Money, its worth it for not HDMI

Pros: Really, you can't say much because monitors come down to personal viewing.
However, if you must know, it hasn't broken, and I think the picture is great.

Cons: None, because I have had no problems. Again, monitors kind of come down to personal preferences and experiences

Other Thoughts: Its a monitor, and I like it. But it is hard to judge them when they are on the internet. So, I don't doubt it if I get votes for a non-helpful review, ha ha.
