The HL monitor combines the energy efficiency and design advantages of LED technology with HannsG's own proprietary display technologies. The HL231DPB has a 23 inch anti-glare display, accommodating a full HD friendly 1920 x 1080 native resolution (with 16:9 ratio), easily satisfying everyday computing tasks and enhancing the multimedia experience. This makes it an ideal home or office solution. The HL231DPB has a simple, yet elegant design which is accentuated by it's ultra slim form made possible by the advantages of LED backlighting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value for money 26 July 2011
The monitor arrived in solid, sturdy packaging, and came with a VGA cable, sound cable, power supply, CD and a couple of leaflets.

Screwing on the base of the monitor is easy, and I was all set up in about 2 minutes.

The quality is great - the LED screen is absolutely stunning, and the anti-glare coating is brilliant - I can work with two windows behind me with no issues at all.

Overall, a superb monitor, but the speakers aren't that great (who uses them anyway?)

5* to Amazon for early delivery, 5* to Hanns-G for producing such a great monitor at such a cheap price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous at the price 26 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
My last 19" Hanns G finally died after 5 years, so went for a bigger one at a great price. The picture is very sharp on the highest setting. No all webpages stretch to the full screen size, but its not a problem for me. I can use it as a split screen without changing settings, so I have been working on MS office on one half of the screen whilst surfing on the other. The speaker is adequate for purpose, but if you want good audio etc then buy some speakers (same as with a Tv etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars HannsG HL231DPB 1 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased the HannsG as a replacement for a Benq BenQ G2222HDL that I returned. I must say I am very happy with this monitor which has easy to use controls, a wider viewing angle and truer colour than The Benq BenQ G2222HDL which it replaced. In addition the extra 1.5 inches seems much more in reality and is a perfect size for me especially when viewing 2 pages at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars First widescreen experience 19 Sep 2011
By T. Hill
I purchased one of these to replace an old fishtank monitor that I had been using for many years. The setup and installation was very straightforward, being just a case of plug-and-play.

I am still using Windows XP, so the driver supplied on the CD was not compatible with my system, but I found this no hindrance whatsoever. The monitor worked immediately as soon as I switched on my PC, and there was no need to install the drivers.

One important thing to mention is: take care when changing the angle of the base stand. The stand is quite stiff and difficult to move, so make sure you grasp the bottom of the monitor as well as the top, when making adjustments.

There were no dodgy pixels, flickering or any other problems with this monitor.
This is the first widescreen I have used, but to my mind this is a great monitor at a great price, and I would recommend it to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate monitor 3 Jan 2012
By Tony
Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace a perfectly satisfactory Samsung LCD TV/Monitor of the same size which has given a very good service for the past 18 months. This has now gone back to being a straight TV (more cost effective) and so I started looking for a cheap LED monitor to replace it. This HannsG monitor ticks all the right boxes, full HD, decent size screen, LED backlighting and at a price un-matched by any other manufacturer. I wasn't expecting too much from this monitor given the make and especially the low price but, I must say I am pretty impressed. The image is bright and sharp and is definitely an improvement over my previous display. There are no dead/live pixels which is a relief. With the additional benefit of a three year on-site warranty (swap over) you can't really go wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but you get what you pay for 15 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
I'll admit I bought this monitor based on it's reviews and price. For what I do, it probably isn't ideal (photoshop work). It's not as clear as I would like (at least my particular one isn't). The colour is superb though which is very important for me. The speakers are very tinny so if the sound is your priority, don't buy this monitor (I don't mind as I rarely listen to anything on it). Build, assembley and set up were easy. The build is more than substantial enough for the price and the monitor can be easily angled. My only gripe is that the display just seems the slightest bit fuzzy to me, other than that, no complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent monitor for iMac 4 Sep 2011
I was nervous about buying this as a monitor for my ailing iMac, but it turned out to be simplicity itself. Most of the set up was done from the iMac, the only really important thing to be sure of is having the right connector (mini DVI to VGA). Neet® - Mini DVI to VGA adapter cable for Apple Mac.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good fro the money 6 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this monitor when my 19" noname make one died
As supplied The HannsG was far too bright and washed out, but as the review in my PC magazine said, if you turn the brightness down it is much better.

I have it in dual screen mode with a smaller HP one which turns on much faster and seems to have more vibrant colour, but for the money this is very good and works well with my new motherboard and Windows 7.
