The L1950 Carbonite from HP is all business. This 19" LCD supports a resolution of 1280x1024 for incredible detail. With the rotating stand you can also switch to portrait mod and display 1024x1280. This is especially useful in office situations where you are typing long documents since you can have more of the document on the screen at one time. In addition to the DVI-D and D-Sub connectors the monitor also functions as a two port USB hub. This may not seem like much but it makes it much easier to attach headsets or occasionally used items like thumb drives to the monitor rather than trying to get to the back of your computer.

The reason these monitors are so much better than the ones you can buy in a store is they were made for office use and they were very expensive. They were built from the best available materials to the best specs. The other monitors were built to be cheap. That is how it works in retail stores. The cheapest product is purchased the most. So these companies build monitors from the cheapest available components using the least expensive technology they can get.
