Summary: The Monitor works great with a beautiful picture. I am happy with the unit. Only one issue bothers me. The monitor was sold as new but not in original packaging . However the display diagnostic menu says that the back light hours of use are 12,333. This is not new!. In fact that is over 3 years of use on the back light system at using 8 hours per day. That is plain and simple false advertising!!!!! I hope it does not fail soon.
Summary: This monitor is truly spectacular! It is very large, very bright, very clear, and exactly everything I wanted! Also, it looks similar to an iMac/LED Cinema Display :) but it was SO much cheaper! A+++++++ Thank you thank you thank you!
Summary: Of course..I bought this brand new on Ebay. This monitor on the HP website runs about 350 to 399$ so i was able to save a nice chunk of change buying it here, but even at full price this would be worth the dollar. This is widescreen so the 27inches go a long way. Whether on your desk or mounted on the a wall you will be able to see everything on this. the 1920x1080 resolution is great!
Summary: I had a 19"monitor before and the difference is like going from black and white TV to color TV. When I use it I don't notice any reflection as some of the other's had mentioned. I would strongly recommend the 27" HP Monitor.
Summary: to anyone who is considering the purchase of the 27" hp monitor 2709m , when i recieved the monitor i was very excited to finally be able to see everything in my new flight simulator program with a realistic perspective,but after using the monitor for a day i noticed that there was something on the screen,but after trying to wipe the screen off i saw that there was several dots on it.
