Leading the lineup is the HP EliteDisplay Monitor. Coming in February for prices starting at $380, this is HP’s first 23.8-inch diagonal display with an integrated privacy screen that is designed to shield sensitive content from prying eyes.  It also sports a sleek design that comes with four way adjustability, including tilt, pivot, swivel, with up to 150 mm height adjustment.

With 1080 FHD resolution and a 3-sided micro-edge bezel, it promises to showcase every detail in your content.  There’s a wide variety of ports too, including VGA, HDMI, USB 3.0, and DisplayPort.

HP announces seven X-Series gaming monitors starting at just $259
hp x series gaming monitors

Buying a new gaming monitor isn't easy, especially with such a wide range of options available on the market. Today, HP is introducing seven new models to complicate that decision further, though they come with a softener to make the decision easy: Price.

The new monitors fall under the X Series line (Which isn't at all confusable with Microsoft's Series X), with four 27-inch models, two 32-inch panels, and one 34-inch ultrawide model. The difference between these models is in the details, with some packing higher-quality IPS panels and/or higher resolutions, or they have a curve, as denoted by the c in their name.

HP launches the new Omen 25i gaming monitor, starting at just $349
hp omen 25i gaming monitor starts at 349 2

Gaming monitors typically start at 27-inches, which is what makes the HP Omen 25i quite unique. The smaller 25-inch screen means a smaller overall footprint, which could make the Omen 25i a good option for college students or anyone with a compact desk.

That also means this isn't an overly expensive monitor. The new Omen 25i costs $349. That's $70 more than the previous Omen 25, but it's still not overly expensive for a gaming monitor. That's especially true, considering the high-end design of this screen. It takes inspiration from the Omen laptops and desktops, featuring a diamond-shaped base and thin bezels.
