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: 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.
