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.
Summary: I use it for gaming and hd viewing to basic Internet surfing, note.... I bought the dell ultra-sharp version for like $ 700 plus dollars it was very good BUT it did not have a matted screen, this monitor has a matted screen and works in very bright rooms and does not reflect light. This one to ME is better than the dell high end monitor that I returned. this one was less $200, a way better value. the gaming is awesome and everything......
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: 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: 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.
