HP 24mh Review

HP 24mh Review

The HP 24mh 23.8-Inch Display comes with a surprising number of features. There are built-in speakers, as well as the ability to rotate from landscape to portrait mode and a DisplayPort connector. It’s a good compromise between the cheapest and most expensive displays in this category, which usually lack HDR and USB-C connectivity. It also undercuts products like the LG 34GP83A-B, which is designed for professional video creation.

Design and Features:

Although the port selection is adequate, it lacks USB-C, which is becoming more common even in the budget category. VGA, HDMI, and DisplayPort are the available ports, and because of the thin screen bezels, you can easily combine this screen with another in a multi-monitor arrangement. There are five levels of pixel reaction time overdrive (Level 1 to Level 5) that modify the speed at which pixels can change colors. We recommend setting this option to Level 3 because the pixels are pushed too forcefully at Level 5, resulting in pixel overshoot.

Image Quality:

The HP 24mh uses a common IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel used in the most inexpensive 24′′ 1080p monitors. Out of the two-panel types available at this price range, this panel technology offers the widest 178° viewing angles and the most consistent and accurate color reproduction. You’ll need a more expensive factory-calibrated monitor or a dedicated calorimeter for serious work.

A stand with a Twist:

With a silver-gray bottom bezel and practically imperceptible side and top bezels, the 24mh is a stylish monitor. It has a 23.8-inch in-plane switching (IPS) display with full HD (FHD) or 1080p resolution. It’s fine for general-purpose use at that resolution and screen size, though a touch low for photo editing. The HP 24mh is a 27-inch LCD screen with two HDMI and VGA video ports at a low price point. 

Two bays, each carrying a 2-watt speaker, are built into the back of the panel. Four little buttons on the panel’s bottom right border control the onscreen display (OSD). The display comes with a one-year warranty from HP, although we wish it was longer.


The IPS panel on the HP 24mh provides good viewing angles, and with a little tinkering, almost any user can achieve a very appealing overall arrangement. Due to the lack of local dimming, this isn’t a genuine HDR display, but with a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time, and 250cd/m2 brightness, it’s more than adequate for basic computing demands. A 32-inch LG 32QN600-B with HDR 10 and AMD FreeSync compatibility is more recommended for serious multimedia professionals seeking a good 4K screen.

Adaptive-Sync, which gives you a customizable refresh rate, isn’t supported by the HP 24mh display (VRR) VRR eliminates screen tearing and stuttering by syncing the monitor’s refresh rate to the GPU’s frame rate if you have a compatible AMD (FreeSync) or NVIDIA (G-SYNC Compatible) graphics card. The VRR range for low refresh rate monitors is usually restricted to  48-75Hz/FPS (Frames Per Second).

Testing the 24mh:

The HP 24mh is an IPS panel with a 2,560 x 1,440-by-1,440 screen that covers the sRGB color gamut with 99.5 percent accuracy. The monitor’s brightness is rated at 250 nits (candelas per meter squared) by HP, but it measured 221 nits. It has a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, which is achieved with a ratio of 1,446:1.


  • sRGB color coverage is excellent. 
  • DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA ports for an IPS display High contrast ratio 
  • Height, pivot, and tilt adjustments are all supported by the stand. 
  • 2-watt speakers built-in


  • A one-year warranty is provided. 


With three inputs, an ergonomic stand, and built-in speakers, HP’s 24mh IPS-based budget monitor is surprisingly feature-rich for its price. For the money, the panel also has a good contrast ratio and excellent sRGB color coverage.
