HP x-Series Desktop LED Monitors Unveiled

December 10, 2010, By Leo Xavier

HP has unveiled its x-Series lineup of consumer monitors that includes five new LED backlit models. The new models come at sizes ranging from 20 to 27 inches (diagonally) and yet all the models are just about one inch thick. The image below shows the 25-inch model.

The 2011x 20-inch model which comes with a price tag of $160 comes with a resolution of 1600×900 and an anti-glare panel. The second model, the 2211x which costs $200 has a resolution of full HD 1920x1080p. Both these models have VGA and DVI-D connectors (with HDCP) and cables are included in the package.

The 23-inch 2311x with a price tag of $230 has the same specs as the 2211x but also adds as HDMI input.

The 25-inch 2511x, that costs $300, and the 27-inch 2711x (costs $400) feature the same 1920×1080 resolution as the two smaller models, but comes with a BrightView option and raise the brightness to 300 nits (the other models offer 250 nits of brightness).

All the models are claimed to increase energy efficiency by up to 43 percent. The monitors also have a 3,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The use of Twisted Nematic (TN) technology enables 5ms response time. This will make the monitors good for gaming and typical consumer use. But in the case of color fidelity and viewing angles, the monitors will be average.

All the monitors also rate Energy STAR 5.0 and EPEAT Silver specifications for power consumption, averaging a 33 percent savings over similar but LCD-based monitors.

If you are interested in picking up the smaller monitors, it will be available from this Sunday onwards. The other larger ones will hit stores the following week. An external speaker option is also available.
