HannsG HH251DPB 24.6 inch LCD TFT Monitor Review

When my brilliant 22″ Samsung monitor suddenly lost half its brightness on one side of the screen it was time to replace it. I used it for a day and it was obvious then we weren’t going to get along for much longer. Looking around at the various monitors now available I decided to go as big as possible without breaking the bank. The best option seemed to be the HannsG HH251DPB which had a very respectable 24.6″ screen size. I use this as a dual monitor with my laptop so as the main display that was going to be a nice step up. Ebuyer and Amazon had it at the same price (about £130) but worryingly the Amazon customers hated it and the Ebuyer ones loved it. I took the plunge anyway and have to say visually its excellent. The built in speakers though as you might expect are absolutely shocking and produce a horribly tinny distorted noise at almost any volume.

Its a bit of a dust and fingerprint magnet with its glossy black surround but that’s pretty slim so its not too bad. 3 months on and its had no problems at all, no dead pixels and gives a nice overall colour for everyday office use.
