Summary: I've had this monitor for over a year now and it is great! It is very large, which offers a nice amount of space to do things for multitasking. I use this monitor with my custom Built PC for anything from browsing the web to production tasks to gaming. It serves my purposes very well and I have not had any issues with it whatsoever. The only thing that I can think of that would make this monitor perfect is if it could display 3D content like movies and games in 3D.
Summary: This is probably the best 23" IPS monitor value out there and the it is an HP monitor. I paid only $169 at Best Buy before tax and my daughter loves it. Compared to my HP LP3065, this bargain priced HP name brand is a steal.
I use 3 on the same computer and now I can't imagine not having three monitors! !

Summary: This is a very good monitor that is LED backlit. I use 3 of them on one computer using Eyefinity Multi-Display and it is great. Most of the time I have all three monitors on when I work and it is nice to spread your open programs around to view several tasks at once. I am using 1920 X 1080 resolution. The contrast ratio is very good at 3,000,000 to 1. The images are crisp and clear and the response time is 7 milliseconds.
Summary: I bought this monitor at the same time I bought this HP H8-1445 Envy Desktop PC (http://www.amazon.com/HP-h8-1445-ENVY-Desktop-PC/dp/B009RSFSZS/ref=cm_rdp_product). Amazingly I had the worst experience with BOTH OF THEM at the same time! You can read my review for the PC at the link provided. The monitor malfunctioned from the start since it was taken out of the box. I plugged it in, turned it on and all I got in the screen were flickering red and yellow stripes.
Summary: Moved to a dual monitor system and I wanted monitors with an IPS panel display (best for photo editing). I was a tad sceptical because of the relatively low price, but higher end IPS monitors can run $500+ each. Since I was buying 2, I thought I would try the HP 2311xi, and it turns out that I made a good decision. This is a great monitor!
Summary: The monitor is vivid and sharp and the colors pop out. The only thing I can say I've had troubles with, would be with the fact that on some on occasions when I turn the computer on the monitor goes into vga mode rather than hdmi, causing the image to be distorted but after readjusting the monitor settings everything is good.
Summary: I have two of these now, will get a third soon. My office can get a lot of sunlight during the day, even so the contrast on these monitors keeps image quality superb. I do graphics work & design, and play video games :) IMHO performance has been perfect for me, especially considering they weren't overpriced one bit.
