HP 23xi review (long term review w/reliablity & warranty info)

For the past two years we have been using a number of HP 23xi displays at home and the office. Overall these are some of my favorite monitors.

Here are the pros:

  • IPS
  • Reasonable price (~$130 USD when on sale)
  • Energy efficient
  • External power supply (this is nice b/c if the power supply fails, you just replace it… not the entire monitor)
    • Power supplies are readily available (I had two spare laptop/HTPC power supplies that worked fine)
  • Nice looking and reasonably well built
  • Very thin and lightweight
  • Fairly small bezel which makes for a nice multi-display setup


  • no VESA mount
  • limited position adjustability
  • warranty is only 1 yr?

Overall I highly recommend these monitors if you find them in the $130-$150 range. Anything more that that I might recommend waiting until they go on sale.

If you have any questions about the monitors, please post in the comments below 🙂
