Hewlett Packard reckons if you're a business user, your desk is probably cluttered enough as it is with TPS reports, stacks of papers, your custom name plate, pictures of the family, and whatever other knick nacks lay strewn about. Why add a bulky monitor to the mix?

To help make the most out of your desktop real estate, HP is getting ready to launch its Elite L2201x monitor, a 21.5-inch LED display that's described as an "ultra-modern, micro-thin business monitor." According to HP, this is the company's thinnest monitor to date measuring (with stand) 19.94 (W)  x 4.89 (D) x 14.22 (H) inches. Key specs include:
  • 1920x1080 screen resolution
  • 0.248mm display pixel
  • 250 cd/m2 brightness (typical)
  • 5000:1 contrast ratio (static)
  • 178 degrees horizontal; 178 degrees vertical viewing angle
  • 16ms response time
While the response time gives us the willies, business users might be more interested in the included DisplayPort as opposed to whether or not there will be any ghosting when trying to game.

"With a quick connection to a single DisplayPort input, you can instantly plug in to productivity when used as a second monitor," HP says. "With no extra cables to connect, the HP L2201x is the perfect complement to your mobile lifestyle."

HP didn't say how much the L2201x will cost or when it will ship, only that it's "coming soon!"

Response time seems really high.

Check if that response time is black to black or grey to grey. If it is black to black then it is perfectly fine. The fastest black to black is around 8ms, with all non-biz monitors listing their grey to grey time.


From everything I have been able to find, it seems that the 16ms response time is black to black, which means the grey to grey (which is what is normally listed) will be

21.5 inches and 16.9 ...PASS

I don't care how thin it is, for my taste,A computer monitor should not be anything less than 24 inches. Maybe this would be good for the kiddies...

I agree sammy.......21 inchers are so 2000;s :P

At that size, although cool...it should be in the 99dollar range, then it might be worth it!

I guess it would be cool to have a monitor that you can stick to the wall with double sided tape :P

Thin is cool and all, but I don't know that I'd pay much extra to have a slightly thinner monitor.
