Most notable is the fact that the Q2159 can handle full 1080p video output with a relatively fast 5ms response time.

The Compaq Q2159 is a budget-friendly 21.5” widescreen LCD monitor that retails at an affordable price, yet offers high-ranked features typically found on more expensive models. Most notable is the fact that the Q2159 can handle full 1080p video output with a relatively fast 5ms response time. Included also are integrated front-firing speakers, a tilt feature for adjusting the monitor for the best position, and a detachable base for mounting the unit on a wall (adapter not included). The number one drawback to this unit is that it lacks a DVI input, which means users sporting a higher-end desktop or laptop will be forced to connect by VGA instead.
