The color on it is bright and crisp.

First off, it was extremely easy to set up, and there were zero dead pixels out of the box.

I handle computer issues at my job and have installed five HP-S2031 monitors before buying one for myself. I was planning on adding an additional monitor and found an in store offer of $99.95. Just as at work, the three pieces (the stand has two parts that snap together, which snap into the base) installed quickly and easily. Typical of most new monitors it has a very bright display. I have read a couple of reviews stating that text was blurry, but on mine, as well as the ones I've installed at work, with its recommended resolution of 1600x900 it is extremely sharp and clear both with word processing and other programs. There was a bit a blurriness when I initially connected it to my laptop which has a 1366x768 default resolution, but once corrected it was crystal clear, and I suspect that may have been the problem with the others. Also it's worth mentioning that Windows 7 users have "ClearType Text Tuner" available which will sharpen text on any monitor, available by typing "Clear" in the Start menu and following your nose. The blue L.E.D. which my I found a bit irritating can be turned off as desired by going to Menu\Management\Bezel Power L.E.D. Additionally numerous other details are configurable, and "Information" will show the units unique and unchangeable serial number for insurance purposes. Overall I find the unit works exactly as advertised. It's not a high end monitor, but for most purposes it will meet expectations with ease.

For years now, I've been wanting a second monitor to use in tandem with my primary 24-inch (1920 x 1200) Samsung SyncMaster T240 (which I've had for 3 years and also love). However, I could never quite get myself to justify the cost of having a second monitor. But recently, I was at my local Best Buy and saw this HP S2031 on sale for a hundred bucks. Now, I've seen a lot of monitors in that price range before, but all of the ones I saw had lower native resolutions and/or slower response times. When I spotted this one, which sported a 1600 x 900 resolution and a 5ms response time, I couldn't resist. I'd never bought an HP monitor before, but for that price I decided to take the chance.

And I'm so glad I did. It's nothing fancy. Just a basic LCD monitor, but it serves my purposes perfectly, as I just needed a second monitor to display my monitoring programs while playing games on my primary monitor. I also use it to browse the web while watching online videos on the other monitor. It also works great for browsing two web pages simultaneously. Viewing angles are good, but not excellent. Backlight bleedthrough is there (as it is on most LCDs), but it's very minimal, and I can only notice it when I'm looking for it while the computer is booting up with a completely black screen. During actual use, it's not evident at all.

First off, it was extremely easy to set up, and there were zero dead pixels out of the box. It also came with all cables needed to hook it up. Also, none of the cables are permanently attached to the monitor, so if a cable ever goes bad, you can simply replace the entire cable. I've owned a lot of monitors that have the video cable permanently attached to the back of the monitor, which means if that cable were to go bad, the whole monitor would then be useless.

Verified Purchase
I bought the monitor for Christmas. The set up was very easy. It's a very sleek widescreen monitor. The color on it is bright and crisp. We have really enjoyed the sharp resolution of the screen when streaming movies or playing games. The screen doesn't have speakers, for us that's not an issue since we have a nice set that compliments the screen.
I would purchace this screen again. Great price and great quality.

This is a good quality monitor. Reasonable price (although you can find a lower price - you pay for the HP brand name). I like the anti-glare surface.

The one annoyance is the very, VERY bright blue LED next to the on/off switch - in the pictures, it shows as just a blue dot, but in reality, it's extremely bright. I put a piece of black plastic tape over it after about ten minutes of having it glaring right in my eyes.

But, you say, how can you tell if the monitor's on if you can't see the LED?

Serendipitously, when the monitor is on, there's an image on the screen. Thus, I have discovered an alternative way of knowing if the monitor is turned on.

Pardon the sarcasm, folks - but really, there's no need for a piercingly bright LED to tell me if the monitor is on.

I am still in unbelief over the 1-star ratings of this monitor.

The fact is this is the best monitor made in its price range and size. The default resolution is 1600 x 900, and with my NVIDIA control panel where I can lower the brightness and gamma, it has the clearest text and is the easiest on the eyes in my 32+ years of using, selling, servicing and programming computers. I paid $80 plus tax, so tell me how in the world you could go wrong, and what more could you possibly expect for this price??

This is the best monitor value available today. It beat out used monitors at the pawn store selling for more. !. Go figure that out, 1-star complainers!
