No height adjustment or VESA mounts
4 Star Review   By Robert07 on HP - Jul 2, 2012   

Nice monitor - easy to setup. The only issue is that there is no VESA mount to hang on the wall or mount on a stand and the base does not allow the height to be adjusted.

Great replacement/upgrade for our HP w2207
5 Star Review   By AlandGert on HP - Jun 29, 2012   

Recently purchased this beauty for under $170 and couldn't be happier. It is mated with a new HPE h8 desktop and replaces an older (and very reliable) HP w2207 monitor, which has been installed on another computer. The 2311x was all the many reviews said it would be, and we were able to see it in action locally before making our purchase. The set-up was flawless and the IKEA-like instructions were easy to follow. For any needed adjustments to the display, we played around with the settings recommended in the CNET review and found them most helpful. Our uses primarily are for text and for archiving old photos - both functions easily handled with the 2311x.. The adjustment buttons and functions on the lower right of the monitor are easy to use and follow the same simple system as used on our older w2207. For our needs, this 2311x is another winner from HP, and were heartily recommend it. The only small feature lacking (compared to the w2207) is the vertical adjustment. No big thing for us.

Nice picture, relatively easy setup.
4 Star Review   By Dogphoto on HP - Jun 25, 2012   

Replaces similiar HP monitor which failed under two years after moderate use. Both the original monitor AND this replacement monitor have outstanding pictures. At the same time, I hope for far better service from this replacement monitor.

5 Star Review   By DOFA on HP - Jun 18, 2012   

This monitor displays better than I had expected. My first impression upon opening the box was that the monitor is very sleek and looks great on my desk. Once I started using it I was very impressed by it's display. My desktop background did not look how it normally does or like a screen at all. It honestly looked like a painting sitting on my desk. I definitely recommend this model.

5 Star Review   By macaroon on HP - Jun 15, 2012

Great monitor, assembly had issues
4 Star Review   By Windscape on HP - Jun 15, 2012   

The monitor is excellent once assembled. However, in the process of assembling the monitor I scratched the display. This was due to not knowing how fragile the display was and not having any paper documentation in the box informing me of such. Luckily the scratch is small and somewhat in the corner, so it can be lived with.

Lot of monitor for the money
5 Star Review   By MikeDB on HP - Jun 13, 2012   

When my Dell Ultrasharp flat panel monitor suddenly died, I replaced it with this HP23" LED unit. After updating my old video card drivers, I plugged in this unit and I was amazed. It quickly self adjusted to my 7 year old computer and I was blown away by the picture. My only quibble is that the viewing angle can be a little touchy but it is a small trade-off considering the excellent price that I paid. This monitor is a keeper!

Nice monitor--good color rendering
5 Star Review   By Thomas47 on HP - Jun 13, 2012   

This monitor uses LEDs to supply its light, rather than florescent tubes. As a result, the colors seen are more natural. This is especially useful for editing color photos and videos. In other respects the monitor is also great--very clear, works well for video.

It is the thinest Monitor I ever had!
5 Star Review   By Arcalark on HP - Jun 13, 2012   

The reality is I thought I paid to much, the true is maybe a got a bargin. This is a great easy to use monittor, turn it on and enjoy. It auto adjusts to input and the factory settings are great for your games and programs. You have made the HP 2311x so thin and light I want to hang it on the wall.

Good monitor
4 Star Review   By stevensun on HP - Jun 12, 2012   

Generally speaking. This is a good monitor. Pros: anti glare coating is very effective. Have pre defined setting for 'text', 'movie','game', which is convenient to switch between different tasks. Price is reasonable. Cons: the base can be heavier. No usb or audio connector. Bottom line: Even though it lack of some feathers, but it satisfy all my main needs: a big monitor suitable for editing, watching movie, with reasonable price.

Very good image
4 Star Review   By amd29165 on HP - Jun 10, 2012   

The monitor has very good image quality and is a good size in a dual monitor desktop set up. Three display inputs are a nice feature. My only complaint is the location of the power switch under the bottom right corner. It is very inconvenient and difficult to activate with one hand without moving the monitor.

Very good indeed
5 Star Review   By Narno on HP - Jun 8, 2012   

responsive, good viewing angle, not too bright, does a good job at not reflecting light coming from a window. One cons.: it somehow takes few seconds to warm up when in sleeping mode, it's a bit annoying that I have to wait for my monitor rather than my PC (with SSD hence the speed) but it's a small negative

Portal to Performance
5 Star Review   By Redbeard on HP - May 18, 2012   

After seven years of using a 16 inch monitor, this 23 inch is a marvel. The ideal size for eyes that are struggling a bit more these days. It showed up within two days after order and immediately impressed. High Def is the only way to fly. The perfect complement to an outstanding package.

HP 2311x is an Excellent Buy/Value
4 Star Review   By tazzman on HP - May 16, 2012   

Purchased the HP 2311x 2 weeks ago and received prompt delivery. Monitor was easy to setup & Installation was a snap. PQ (picture quality) is excellent in about every way possible, bright, sharp and incredible contrast. I have not had the opportunity to get deep into the menu yet, but will follow-up later after tweaking for some specific apps. I could not select 4 1/2 Stars, but would have given this unit 5 Stars if the base had been slightly heavier so that this unit felt more substantial. Overall, awesome buy.

Has Serious Issues. - very poor
1 Star Review   By bisquick on HP - May 3, 2012   

This monitor has some serious issues. It would initially work fine, but then the computer would go into sleep mode, and when I tried to wake it up with a mouse jiggle or keystroke, I got a message from the monitor saying "Signal Lost" or something to that effect. The only way I could get the monitor to come back on was to hard boot the PC. Even removing and reattaching the cables did not work. The funny part is, when I went to both BestBuy and Staples to shop for different monitors, they had the HP 2311x on display, and it was exhibiting the same "lost signal" error!! HA! I told the sales guy that's exactly why I returned the HP monitor! So it wasn't just my monitor, but a design flaw. When the monitor was working, the text never did display well. I played with the settings for quite a few hours, but it was either too fuzzy to read or too “pixelated.” I can NOT recommend this monitor. I ended up buying a Samsung SyncMaster SA 450 and it has been AMAZING!!

5 Star Review   By blastoff on HP - May 2, 2012   

This is a great looking and performing monitor with excellent features. I previously used a similar HP LCD monitor, and this one is a noticable improvement, even though I was quite happy with the other one. There is no longer a height adjustment, which really doesn't matter to me, but feel it may be worth noting for some users. All in all, a great purchase!

Great price - Not VESA compatible
4 Star Review   By mcheney7 on HP - Apr 28, 2012   

Monitors are not VESA compatible but I made modifications that fixed the issue. This was done without any changes to the monitors themselves. I used sheet metal screws to attach the VESA brackets to the upright of the monitor stand. Looks great and you have to know what to look for to see the upright of the monitor stand behind the monitors.

It'll do
4 Star Review   By DerisedEgami on HP - Apr 26, 2012   

Personally, I'm happy with the monitor. It's much larger than my old monitor, and affords a much greater viewing area. I'm not sure about the screen material.... I thought it would be more glossy (maybe I'm just ignorant to the new LED's.) My monitor, from day one, has had a tiny lingering green point of light, about mid-screen towards the bottom. I probably should talk to someone in warranty about it, but it's so tiny, I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.

Designers stay away
1 Star Review   By SFS2 on HP - Apr 26, 2012   

This monitor will suffice for anyone who is not a designer, if you are one stay away. All these monitors have a slight gradation from the top to bottom of the screen. My business bought several of these and tried to replace several - they all have the same issue. You can easily notice this by filling your screen with one solid color - you will see right away that the bottom is a different shade from the top. Do this with a normal viewing angle.

Oops - no VESA!
3 Star Review   By MaineDeveloper on HP - Apr 23, 2012   

I use dual displays mounted on monitor arms and was disappointed to learn that this monitor does not have a VESA mounting plate. My mistake, since my other monitor is from HP so I assumed this monitor would also have the VESA mount. I will probably try to sell this monitor locally and buy a different monitor that better fits my working style. I did not try to return the unit since No VESA was listed in the HP spec, but not on the Amazon site. I like HP and HP products - but this one not so much.

Best Purchase Ever
5 Star Review   By computernut on HP - Apr 22, 2012   

Very pleased! Was was looking for a 20" or 21" because of space. But this monitor was offered with the computer at a extra savings. It worked out with what space I had. I'm not at all sorry for having the larger monitor, especially after using my old 16" CRT monitor. There is no comparison.

An Excellent Monitor; No Major Cons
5 Star Review   By HPUser97 on HP - Apr 21, 2012   

I bought this monitor at Christmas and decided to write a review now after using it for over four months. Anyways, this is a great monitor with very simple setup. It was up and running within 10 minutes and didn't require me to run the startup CD. The colors on this monitor are real and vivid. Also, the 1080p is a nice touch and looks flawless when running bluray off my three year old laptop. The different modes are nice, but I tend keep mine on text for best overal results. Some people may not like how this monitor does not have a glossy screen, but the matte finish is easier to look at and doesn't collect dust (huge plus.) The only complaint I have is that one of my pixels turned green, but that can happen to any brand on monitor, even Apple's overally expensive screen. Other than that, their isn't any cons. The menu is easy to learn and anyone can enjoy this monitor, espessaily duel monitor users (like myself.)

I wanted a larger monitor for displaying multiple windows for the purpose of 2D data analysis. It serves as the extended monitor for my laptop. The color fidelity was not important so I have not assessed this measure of performance in the 2311x. Compared to my 15.5" laptop screen, this was a huge improvement. It worked just fine out of the box without having to make any adjustments. Easy set up. Many more windows really improved efficiency, and the larger screen enabled me to analyze more complicated diagrams. Clarity, focus, resolution was just fine.

4 Star Review   By xplayer on HP - Apr 15, 2012   

monitor has good features, resolution is good, for a low priced monitor, it is a good buy. the stand is a little weak and when compared to a higher priced monitor, there is a difference

Awesome Monitor
5 Star Review   By RichieRich on HP - Apr 14, 2012   

This is the first monitor I bought in 5 years. It is awesome. The picture is crisp and clear. It is so lightweight compared to previous monitors. I would definitely recommend it to others.

I bought this for my 15 year old son and he totally loves it. The display is very crisp and graphics are very sharp. We are both very pleased with this purchase.

Good Computer
4 Star Review   By rpctaz on HP - Apr 10, 2012   

I am happy with my system. I recieved it by the shipping date. The only thing I didn't like was having to delete alot of the pre packaged software. I wish there was a way to not have nortons and some of the other stuff put on. but after i got the extras deleted the system is verry good and I am quite happy

Good purchase
4 Star Review   By 1946Den on HP - Apr 7, 2012   

The resolution is great. A good large screen. Only one complaint in that the on and off switch could be in a better place. I am constantly trying to find the location when trying to turn the monitor on or off.

WOW
5 Star Review   By Castogere on HP - Mar 29, 2012   

Much bigger than I expected. Comes with a solid VGA cable is a plus. Excellent picture with a great unbeatable price. Allows me to see things in a whole new light....this screen rocks. If your buying a new computer and your looking for a modest screen that doesnt need to be obnoxiously huge. This is the screen for you. Big enough for easy viewing, and fits where ever you need it. Once again HP delivers. Will never shop for a monitor or computer in a bigbox ever again.

Great Monitor
5 Star Review   By Lemontrees3 on HP - Mar 25, 2012   

This monitor was the smallest recommended for this PC and I thought it was too large. But, I now see that it is perfect for this machine and my use. I love the definition it gives and even up close does not blur. I love it.

WOW
5 Star Review   By CindyLou on HP - Mar 24, 2012   

My husband has a 19" flat screen for his computer and every time he walks by mine when I am working on the computer all he can say is WOW. I have to agree. The size is perfect for my desk. The clarity is amazing. Features very easy to learn and use.

Fine, but there may be better choices
3 Star Review   By DougInNJ on HP - Mar 23, 2012   

I bought an HP monitor along with my new desktop, expecting that they would work well together, since I've had problems with incompatibility in the past. So far so good. It works and the picture is nice. I was disappointed in the almost total lack of set-up and adjustment information. This is supposedly an LED monitor, even though the shipping box says LCD. There are multiple ways to hook it up (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc.) but no guidance whatsoever about why you might prefer one kind of connection over another. Even worse, there's no information about the adjustment controls. Out of the box, this monitor was almost blindingly bright. It turns out the default settings are virtually max for brightness and contrast, which may look great in a showroom but not in my home office. It took a while to figure out how to adjust it because there was no documentation about the controls, and a lot of this stuff isn't very intuitive for the average user. I had to find some instructions online, which was annoying, and they weren't all that helpful anyway. And there's no USB slot, which I thought was kind of cheap. To hook up my web cam I had to run the USB cable all the way down to the CPU - more wire, more clutter on the desk. I figured that would be standard, so didn't even bother to check the specs before buying. Now it's working fine and the image is good. I use a computer mainly for work and web surfing. I'm not a gamer, so those capabilities are lost on me. I need sharp text that won't give me a headache using it for 7-8 hours straight. I'm not really unhappy with it but if I could do it again I'd shop around for a different monitor.

great monitor
5 Star Review   By jineug on HP - Mar 16, 2012   

i have only been using this 2311x, 23" monitor for a short time, but so far it's working great. matte screen with shiny black surrounding besel. very lightweight for it's size. good stand. good forward and back tilting. easy to reach ports in back. i'm using it on a newer mac mini and it is important to go into the settings and from the main menu select image control, then select custom scaling, then overscan. select off. i am using an hdmi cable. mine came with overscan set to auto, and this made the image too large for the screen size, and the text was blurry. turning overscan off fixed these problems. it's worth your while to play with the controls a bit and see how you like them set. you can always reset them back to the defaults, and start over. my previous hp monitor is a 22" and has a glossy screen, and while i like it, i also like this matte finish. they both seem to have their good aspects. i tried a 27" first and found for me the screen size was too large for this resolution. the 27,25, and 23 all have the same 1920x1080 (1080p) resolution.

GREAT ITEM FOR GREAT PRICE
5 Star Review   By NITSUJWWOK on HP - Mar 15, 2012   

WHEN I RECEIVED THE MONITOR YOU COULD SAY I WAS SHOCKED WITH THE VARIETY OF CABLES/ADAPTERS THAT CAME WITH IT. I WAS ONLY EXPECTING A VGA CABLE. EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THE PRODUCT AND WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT

Most bang of the buck
5 Star Review   By Paul6666 on HP - Mar 15, 2012   

I got this monitor along with a system purchase with hefty discount. I couldn't be happier. This is the best 23 incher for home and home office use, offering most bang of the buck. HP rocks. Beats Dell hands down.

Great product, great price
4 Star Review   By Tmac2012 on HP - Mar 12, 2012   

Excellent choice for a widescreen, HD monitor. It does everything as advertised with easy setup. It takes a little longer to 'search' for an input than some other models but this is a small issue. Built in speakers would have made this the perfect purchase.

good pic but difficult to adjust
4 Star Review   By Joe27 on HP - Mar 12, 2012   

The adjustment controls are very difficult to adjust. TOO SMALL. Text messages are better displayed in the photo or movie position. Movies are very good. The overall display is very sharp. Colors are very good.

Very nice, given the dimensions
5 Star Review   By BigChimney on HP - Mar 10, 2012   

The lighting, colors, text resolution, and horizontal space on this monitor are great. I don't watch a lot of video, however, and do a lot of word processing, so it would be nice to have a bit more vertical space. But most of the new monitors seem to be going with these rectangular, 16:9 dimensions.

Good Monitor
4 Star Review   By NickZ on HP - Mar 8, 2012   

Shipping was extremely fast; it was at my door in three days. Monitor was extremely easy to assemble, and once I put the disc in for the drivers, everything auto corrected itself with no problems. There is no height adjustment unfortunately, but there is a tilt adjustment that offers a fairly wide range of movement. Also, I do not like how the buttons are on the bottom of the screen, and since the monitor is so light, it moves very easily when using them. However, I rarely use any of the buttons so it isn't a big deal. With the deal that HP offered for the monitor when I got it, it was easily the best price for a monitor this size. Very pleased with my purchase.

This monitor is the best
5 Star Review   By BB25 on HP - Mar 8, 2012   

We've been using our monitor for about 2 weeks now. The clarity is outstanding. It's far superior to the Dell monitor that we used to have. One downside, the instructions for setup show that you press the on button on the front of the monitor. Had to call HP on that - the controls are actually on the underside of the front of the monitor.
