If you’re on a budget and are stuck for ideas on what to buy, the Hanns.G HL231 monitor could be exactly what you’re looking for. Retailing at only £110, the 23-inch LED-based monitor provides a range of different features including a slimline design, 1920 x 1080 resolution, an Eco mode and weighs in at only 3.3kg. Let’s take a look and see what the HL231 has to offer…

After removing the Hanns.G HL231 from the box, you’ll find a range of different cables and documents including a VGA cable, power cable and adapter, warranty information, quick start guide and an installation guide on the included CD.

Our first impressions of the HL231 were that it was indeed a very slimline monitor for the relatively cheap price tag. The monitor features the Hanns.G logo in the bottom centre of the monitor with some compatibility and energy related stickers on the left and the menu and power buttons on the right.

If we move around to the back of the HL231, you can see that there are four different ports available. There’s a line-in jack to connect the monitor up to your computer so that the two built-in speakers are operational, one VGA port, one DVI-D port and the power port.

Adjusting the monitor is basically done by holding the base and pushing the display backwards. To bring the display back to a vertical viewing angle, you just pull the display forwards. However, even though the task is relatively simple, it’s not the easiest of displays to manoeuvre due to the HL231 being so lightweight.
