HP has just announced a new addition to its line of monitors, this time in the form of the 2310e. The 2310e follows up on the 2310m but improves upon it in a variety of ways. First up is an LED backlight that helps to slim down the monitor to around an inch thick. The screen is still of the 1920x1080 resolution variety but now the dynamic contrast has been upped to 8,000,000:1, though I am sure the static contrast is till 1000:1 like the previous model. The response time is 5ms which is more than enough for gamers, plus the brightness is at 250 nits so it shouldn't be overpoweringly bright in a dark room. Connectivity comes in the form of DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort though oddly no VESA mount exists on the rear. If you are wondering about the "e" after the model number, that is because this monitor is eco-friendly by using mercury-free LED lighting, arsenic-free glass, and recycled plastic. The monitor is also Energy Star 5.0 certified.
The HP 2310e is expected to ship on September 29th for $289.
