Hewlett-Packard Australia L1906
- Low price
- So-so image quality, sparse features
The monitor's overall build quality is excellent, and the finish is elegant. However, given its price tag the HP L1906 is not particularly a value buy.
Price$ 599.00 (AUD)
The HP L1906 adds yet another option to the 19in LCD monitor category. However, considering the fact that most 19in versions are widescreen, the standard 4:3 HP L1906 19in has limited appeal.
The HP L1906 is less than ideal for watching movies, gaming or even working with multiple documents. The monitor specifications (500:1 contrast ratio, 250 nits brightness level) are comparable to other offerings in the market, while the response time and viewing angles are slightly lower.
The HP L1906 19in's 12ms rated response time and 140/130 (H/V) viewing angles are not very suitable for gaming or movies. To judge the display's colour performance, we used the Konica Minolta CS-200 colourimeter.
We found that the default factory settings were set too high. After tweaking the brightness and contrast settings, and colour calibrating the display we brought the HP L1906 19in to its best possible state.
The HP L1906 19in did a good job with colour accuracy, particularly with the blues and reds; the greens were average at best. In our DisplayMate colour gradation tests, the monitor did a fair job with colour scale gradients. On our custom response time tests, the L1906 performed well with movie clips but exhibited ghosting with high-frame rate gaming.
To sum it up, the HP L1906's performance veers towards a product aimed at office use. On the design and usability front, the monitor can only be adjusted vertically. It also lacks a DVI input and has no built-in speaker. The OSD controls are pretty straightforward, and tweaking the settings is simple.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
