HP W2072a 20 LED-Backlit LCD Monitor, Black
Change The Settings And This Thing Rocks!
Recently my Soyo 22" bit the dust. I needed a monitor that day to replace it so I researched monitors among various retailers and found this budget gem at Office Depot during a President's Day sale.
Out of the small lightweight box it was simple and straightforward with very good directions if you need it. There are only a couple SIMPLE steps to assemble the stand and hook the two cords. I unhooked my old monitor and this in its place in 5 minutes.
At first I was not happy with the original settings and even begun to question my purchase. I have to say though I am highly impressed after tinkering with the screen settings!
Here are my specs. I found it easiest to use the "menu" button on the bottom right side of the monitor near the blue power light. To each his/her own :) 1600x900 resolution. Brightness 75. Contrast 95. Color~Red 181, Green 207, Blue 245. I also changed the custom text size to 127% and tinkered with the "clear type text" by clicking the Start/Windows logo on the bottom left of screen>Control Panel>Display.
I highly recommend this budget high quality monitor. It has great resolution for most tasks like videos,photos, and web surfing. It's lightweight and seems well made. I have only had it for a few days but certainly hope it lasts. * * * * *

This is the third one I bought. I have two on my desktop and one hooked to my laptop. I've had one for over a year and had absolutely no problems with it. The built-in speaker is great. I don't play music on it, but for YouTube videos it's perfect.

Best buy image quality, so-so sound
This replaces an old (like 10 years old--original came with computer with Windows XP loaded) HP monitor with built-in speakers. The old monitor had way better volume and dynamic range. I'm a little bit disappointed in the speaker quality but very, very impressed with the image quality. I'll probably get some separate speakers, but I can't imagine getting this much image quality at this price.

So far everything works great. Easy to install and great picture.
