Nice monitor, but extras leave something to be desired
4 Star Review   By member Gohoos81 - May 13, 2007   

Strengths: Swivel stance, easy setup, good support from HP, clean display, great graphics, clean text

Weakness: Color bleed at edges, mediocre speaker quality of monitor, excessively wide for need (could remove speakers and reduce price)

Overall, this is an impressive display. The colors are vibrant, and the text is clear. The base is easy to adjust up and down, and it does offer 2 USB ports (requires 1), however, the quality of the spakers is not that exceptional. The speakers rattle a bit when they are placed at high volume and are not able to maintain accurate reproduction of lower frequency sounds (around 30 Hz), at the "bass" sounding levels. Thsi makes the display excessively wide, and it owuld have been better for HP to remove the speaks and maket he display more narrow to save some money. Theyu couldpass this on the consumer, and/or increased the size of the display to 22". There is some bleed from the sides of the monitor too, especially of the blue color, which can be annoying if you are trying to watch a movie on the monitor at night time. The monitor doesn't lend itself to night time watching as much as it could or should do. Overall, the display is exceptionally crisp, and its a nice 1680x1050 display. My laptop has a 1680x1050 display pushed on a 15.4" WSXGA+, but I prefer the monitor for watching movies and playing games on. I would recommend this if you are interested in a good monitor for doing work, if you watnt one for gaming, save up some more money and go with a 24" display, 1920x1200 at least. If you do not need a wide screen display, a 19" is fine, but the DVI connection on this makes it a winner. Overall, 8/10 or 4/5.

Excellent monitor
4 Star Review   By member adityab - May 2, 2007   

Strengths: Picture quality, looks, build quality

Weakness: Installation issue

This is an excellent monitor that displays vibrant colors and sharp text/graphics. The quality of the panel itself is very good and the case and base look upscale. The only issue I had was that, upon installation, I got a video signal error. This was remedied by unplugging the monitor, holding the power button for 5 seconds, and plugging it back in. All in all, an excellent buy.

Nice monitor at a great price
5 Star Review   By member bimrone13 - Mar 20, 2007   

Strengths: Picture, Picture, Picture It has a PVA screen, which performs a lot better than the TN screens.

Weakness: Don't know why the manufacturer puts speakers on monitors.

Nice picture and a value in upgrading from my old CRT. Doesn't look cheap like some of the other monitors. Wall mounting is easy. The HP f2105 is a good 21" monitor at a decent price. It has a PVA screen, which performs a lot better than the TN screens. No backlight bleeding. Full 8-bit color.

HP f2105 21
4 Star Review   By member sugolini2 - Oct 8, 2006   

Strengths: The colors are brillant alon with the clarity and sharpness. A real value in upgrading from my old 19" CRT. The controls on the front are a real plus.

Weakness: The silver color matches my other equipment, computer, printer, etc. However, my wife prefers a black outline around the viewing area.

I was waiting to replace my 19" CRT monitor with a 21" LCD that I could afford. This was the second model that I found. The high resolution of this monitor makes it a real bargain. The $50 rebate from HP put the price well below my $400 target.

HP f2105
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Too many to list. Crystal clear picture quality, excellent brightness and contrast, built-in speakers are a plus. Creates lots of free desk space with small footprint.

Weakness: I haven't found any yet.

I bought two of these great monitors. One for me and one for my wife. She uses the built-in speakers and they are better than the ones she was using with her old monster monitor. I use my seprate 5 speaker surround sound speakers and don't use the built in ones. I love the wide screen that lets me review two documents at once without having to make them so small I can't read them.

Great monitor
4 Star Review   By member cakier - Jan 30, 2006   

Strengths: Incredibly bright, widescreen, great image quality

Weakness: Could use more video inputs, some ghosting when playing FPS games, no horizontal tilt, 1 year warranty

This is my first LCD monitor. I figured now wouldn't be a bad time to make the jump to LCD, especially after my 21" CRT started to die and become quite blurry. The first thing I thought when I had this running next to a fairly new 19" CRT was how bright everything is on this HP LCD. What I once thought was bright on my CRT is now dark, at least compared to this LCD. It's brighter than pretty much any LCD I've seen too. Despite reviews elsewhere stating that there is no ghosting when playing games with this monitor, I do get a slight amount of ghosting while playing Red Orchestra (a WWII first person shooter game), especially when I look around quickly in the game. Video playback (ie, DVDs) looks great, however. I'd rather not have the speakers builtin to this monitor, as that's what my dedicated 5.1 surround speaker system is for. I almost decided against purchasing this monitor because I didn't want an unused set of speakers taking up deskspace. But, honestly, they don't bother me that much. While I can't comment on the actual quality of the speakers, they do blend in well with the overall design. The two USB 2.0 jacks on the side are a nice little bonus. As someone who does a lot of photographic work, browsing, and programming, I am extremely pleased with this monitor.
