There’s really not much to installation. Just a few connections and you’re ready to go, but first let’s do an overview of our product. Pictures just can’t do it justice but here is what this massive 25” De-branded HP monitor looks like.
On the bottom o the monitor you can obviously see the bottom plate that most Older HP monitors used. It’s silver and provides a flat and stable base for the monitor to spread its weight evenly. Upon closer inspection you can see the monitor’s logo which to me looks like a Captain Planet logo. Now on the inside lip I came across a white residue and at first I thought it was a scratch. After wiping at it with a monitor cleaner cloth, it disappeared so I figure it must have been something from shipping or inside the box. Finally, on the bottom of the monitor you have the buttons for the main controls of the monitor, including the power button and volume buttons.
I found the same residue on the top of the monitor that I found on the front. Looking at the monitor from the side you can see it’s pretty slim. HP did a great job of scaling their monitors up and down in size to accommodate the different user needs.
On the back of the monitor you can see it has a rounded out back panel with a lot of venting for more than sufficient airflow to cool off the monitor. This venting is found along the top to accommodate airflow and along the bottom for the speakers.
At the bottom of the monitor you can see the base plate is adjustable so that you can move it for different viewing angles. On the lower back of the monitor you will find the ports to plug in all of your various cables. There’s VGA for people using older computers, DVI for newer computers and then HDMI that allows you to hook it up to your computer or your Console gaming system. They offer an audio port in case you want to use your monitor with the built in speakers. On the other side of the bottom you have the area to plug in the power cable.
