Three new HP business models combine flat, space-saving design with environmentally friendly LED lighting and good ergonomics. Even when described as powerful by the manufacturer, contrast, brightness and response time are typical for TN panels - the monitors have other qualities.
The flagship model LA2206xc provides the highest resolution and is most connective. Its anti-glare display with a 21.5-inch diagonal features 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. VGA and DVI, standard inputs of this series of monitors, are joined by a DisplayPort. The integrated USB webcam with 720p resolution is accompanied by a dual-USB port. Additionally, the LA2206xc features a microphone and built-in speakers for video conferencing. Unilateral seat load is ruled out through rotational and pivot functions, as well as height adjustment.

The HP Compaq LE2002x features non-reflective 20-inch display with a native resolution of 1,600 by 900 pixels. DVI-D and VGA input enable the dual operation of a stationary PC and a mobile computer. The LED backlight of the HP monitor not only allows for a dynamic contrast ratio of 3.000.000:1, but also limits the power consumption to 26 watts. In typical operation, the electricity demand will be at 22 watts.

With the LE2002xi, HP has factored in the viewing angle dependency of TN panels, providing it with a rotation angle of 360 degrees. Also, height adjustment, a large display tilt and a pivot function are provided. In relation to the panel and the connectivity options, the monitor is similar to the LE2002x.
