With the interest in widescreen monitors among our readers remaining strong, we want to turn the focus of today's review to the HP Pavilion f2105. The models of the Pavilion series are for the most part targeted towards home users. Sized 21 diagonal inches, the HP f2105 offers a native resolution of 1.680 x 1.050 pixels. So let's see if the HP Pavilion f2105 proves up to everyday tasks such as working, gaming, and DVD playback.

All results issued in this review have been established using the digital input. The analog input was merely used for testing the analog image quality. Our test bed ran with a Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2600 Golden Sample graphics card and two Point of View GeForce 7800GTX 512MB (SLI) graphics cards.

Scope of supply

The scope of supply of the HP Pavilion f2105 comprises the following parts: one sheet explaining the initial setup steps, one short manual with further installation instructions, one warranty booklet, one CD, one DVI-D cable (digital), one D-Sub cable (analog), one USB cable and one audio cable. The CD contains a detailed manual in PDF format, monitor drivers for Windows, a test utility for picture optimization in analog mode, and the Adobe Acrobat Reader software. The entire documentation is available in several languages. No detailed printed manual is included with the f2105, which, unfortunately, is a common practice among display manufacturers.

Scope of supply of the HP Pavilion f2105. In this picture, one can notice that the cables for DVI-D, USB and audio are missing, as these by mistake had not been included in our review unit.
