In the tradition of the popular 22-inch HP w2207 (h), Hewlett Packard has brought an inexpensive FullHD monitor with good features for home and office use in the form of its 24-inch counterpart, the Pavilion w2408h.

The reflective TN panel, dubbed ´BrightView Technology´ by HP, has been retained, as has the extensive range of ergonomic features, with height adjustable base and pivot function. However, the w2408h has an extended colour space as a special feature (`Vivid Color Technology`), which may make the screen suitable for use in graphics work as well as in the office and games sectors.

In contrast to its predecessor, without the "h" in the title, the HP w2408, the new model only has a HDMI connection instead of a DVI input. Naturally, an analogue D-Sub input is included as before. However, despite its HDMI connection, the w2408h cannot be counted as a multimedia monitor, since it lacks other signal inputs such as a second HDMI input or an additional Component Video connection.

The HP w2408h can be lifted easily out of its packing by means of a handle. The base is already attached and has been folded to the side.

We tested the monitor in PC mode using a Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX and an XFX GeForce 8800GTX. We also used a Philips DVP5980 DVD player and a Sony PlayStation 3 for testing.
