Summary: I've had this monitor for a while now. It works, but now that I've learned about backlight bleed, this is by far the *worst* monitor that I have ever seen in terms of backlight bleed. it comes from all sides and looks horrible at night.
Summary: I bought this monitor and only 2 years after i bought it, it is out of warranty and the LED back-light is blinking they want me to buy a new one. My Samsung monitor was bought used and is still working excellently. I will never buy hp products again unless they do somthing to correct this.
Summary: I got 2 of these monitors about 13 months ago for less than $100 from a local office store. One is still working and the other went bad last week around 13 months just when the warranty is out. First, the resolution went very grainy and the color is way off.
Summary: I got this monitor on Black Friday 2011. I use it at home for school work. The first thing I noticed was the brightness was pretty low. I increased the brightness setting all the way to the max and it is just acceptable now.
Summary: This monitor is terrible. I have one exactly like it purchased about 4 months ago that works great. This one has a bad circuit and has lines through the tv. My problem is that I threw away the box it came in figuring it would work like the other one.
Summary: Build quality is great. Firmware is a nightmare. I just spent 30 minutes trying to turn on this monitor, after using it for 6 months. Firmware will not let you change inputs unless it is ALREADY on an input with a signal.
Summary: I purchased this item to be used with my macbook pro. I had used a previous hp monitor with the computer, and was very pleased. This time no amount of tweaking could produce a good image. The text was blurry and colors were awful. After an hour + on the phone with HP, I decided to return it.
Summary: Bought the HP 2311x backlit LED monitor to replace a 15" CRT - primarily to allow side-by-side display of windows, and to cut back on 12 hour a day electricity costs. Even though this $250 monitor sells for about $150 at Amazon and office supply stores, it is no bargain even at that price.
