HP  Pavilion  25xi 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: These things are really pretty. The change in sharpness from my previous displays is clear (no pun intended). Very thin also, no "real" complaints.

Cons: The cons are really minor and pedantic, but technical. The units come with DVI and VGA cables but not HDMI. Given that the displays have no speakers, HDMI is kind of redundant; that being said, I don't use on display speakers anyway, and they do tend to suck. However HDMI gives it HDCP but can also be accomplished over DVI. Seems that in lieu of HDMI and no cable a dvi/hdmi adapter could have been added. I was disappointed by the external power brick, however given how thin they are, I'm not surprised. But it also seems like it was really meant to use the same electronics along all the sizes of this display. The front panel controls are really hard to see when they are off, I don't have a suggestion on how to make it better however. They are meant to 'vanish' in to the bezel, but there really isn't a visual hint that they are there. Finally with a display of this size, with all the inputs, esp HDMI, there are no VESA mounting studs I can see and its not listed as a feature, but also I don't have a mounting system anyway.

Other Thoughts: So far I have no real complaints. These displays seem to be really good for desk use, but not for mounting.

Asus VE248H Black 24

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Its very bright and whiter than my old display.

Cons: Any dark text not on a while background leaves a white halo when scrolling. I can only speculate why. This was the first thing I noticed after swapping displays. Its very visually annoying and all I can see now when I look at web pages. I may resell this to someone else. I don't think I can cope with it.

Pros: Pro, it arrived at the house.....

Cons: Both of these have now failed on me. I have to seriously question the quality of this product.
