CES 2013] The HP Pavilion line has always been about “bang for the buck”, so introducing IPS displays in that line-up makes sense. Most of the models (22xi, 23xi, 25xi and 27xi) feature a 1080p resolution, but the smallest 20xi does not (it tops at 1600×900), and it’s probably OK for a mid-range 20″ monitor. All of them offer a variety of input options, namely VGA, HDMI, DVI-D.
The IPS is the star of the show here, because if it wasn’t for that special detail, the rest of the specifications aren’t out of the ordinary, and the design itself is decent, but not fantastic either. That said, check the prices: the 20xi will cost $129.99 and the 27xi will sell for an MSRP of $339.99 which seems to land right in the normal price range (street price) for this type of IPS monitors. What do you think? What’s your monitor brand of choice these days?
