HP 2311x | CNET rating: 3 stars out of 5 (Good)

The good: The HP 2311x includes the trifecta of connection options, all placed in an easily accessible spot. Don't expect world-beating performance, but for $230 it's quite good and it's even more impressive for the current price of $170 from
The bad: The monitor has no ergonomic support beyond tilt, its Movie and Gaming presets are too dark, and it has a plastic-feeling build quality. Some audio options would have been useful.
The cost: $168.17 to $229.99
The bottom line: The HP 2311x is a great monitor deal, with good performance and a great assortment of connections for its price.
