Last week, Hewlett-Packard debuted the ultra slim, 0.4-inch thin Elite L2201x. HP has a nearly equally thin consumer display to unveil this week: the 23-inch x2301.
Measuring roughly 0.4-inches (9.8mm) thin as well, this is a rather sophisticated-looking piece of machinery with its brushed-aluminum bezel. As for the full HD (1,920 x 1,080) display itself, this LED-backlit panel offers 72% of the color gamut, a 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 3ms GtG response time, and BrightView technology. On a greener note, the x2301 is also mercury- and arsenic-free with Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT Silver certifications.
Also like the Elite L2201x, the x2301 reserves all of the power and connectivity to the bottom of the display in the aquamarine base to make the monitor as thin as it can be. Those connectivity options include HDMI, VGA and DVI-D. It's also a plug-and-play display, so there shouldn't be much of any set-up required.
The HP x2301 display will be available on June 10 for $279.99. HP also notes that this model is a limited edition product, although there isn't an end date in sight yet.
