Hewlett-Packard Australia L1955
- Dual inputs, quick menu, pivot and height adjustment
- Slight reduction in quality with VGA signal, slight blurring in high-speed scenes
Dual inputs, pivot functionality and height adjustment make the HP L1955 a quality screen at a reasonable price. And a three-year warranty doesn't hurt either.
Price$ 849.00 (AUD)
HP's L1955 is a well-specced 19" TFT monitor suited to any use. The panel runs at 1280 x 1024 pixels; a standard resolution for a 19" model. Weighing 7.5kg, the L1955 is well built, albeit with a slightly blocky appearance. The unit measures 40 x 21 x 57cm, which is about average. The screen face can be tilted and pivoted, while a telescopic base allows for straightforward height adjustment.
The display includes two inputs--both DVI and VGA--and the user can switch between them. This feature is becoming more common on current-generation screens, and it makes them ideal for driving two PCs at once (possibly a primary PC and additional server or router).
The screen features a thin bezel and five buttons on the front panel. The on-screen menu is well designed, easy to use and extremely quick. You're not kept waiting while the display switches from DVI and VGA inputs. The auto-configuration is also zippy and does a reasonable job of configuring the display for general use. We found a few extra changes to brightness and colour settings enhanced the image even more.
There was a slight difference in image quality between the analog and digital inputs, with the DVI connection offering superior definition with light shades. It was noticeable when looking at greyscale image-testing charts, but not during general use.
One elegant feature of the screen is a built-in four-port USB hub. Two connectors are on the rear of the housing, while the other two are on the side for easy access.
The screen boasts a wide viewing angle of 176-degrees, but the contrast dropped quickly as we tried to view it from either extreme. In motion testing, the image blurred slightly in high-speed scenes, but it would still be adequate for light gaming or watching DVDs. In fact, the L1955 is a great all-round display at a reasonable price.
The bundled software is straightforward, and HP includes a screen rotation application to drive the pivoting function. A three-year warranty rounds out an already solid feature set.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
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.
