Great monitor if you don't need wide viewing angles
14 December 2011
Summary: I wanted to use a large monitor for my computer and initially purchased a Panasonic TC-L32S1 32 inch IPS lcd tv for this purpose based on recommendations out on the web. That TV was way to large to properly read documents and browse the web, no matter how fun it might have been to use for games. The pixel pitch is very important and sitting at a distance of 3 feet from a 32 inch tv does not work, as the pixels seem way to big.
Summary: I just bought this monitor yesterday and I have to say I am very pleased. It is replacing my Samsung T260HD 26" LCD Monitor. This monitor produces such rich colors and is so bright. HP is one of the few Company's to use the Bezel lamp in its monitors to give it the glossed over look, which as a gamer, I love. This monitor is perfect. This monitor is by far the best on the market. It is a match for my t260hd.
Summary: Mine had no sticky residue on it what so ever. So I think they solved this issue. I have it hooked up to a macbook pro and am very happy. Next to it I have my old 19" monitor rotated and it fits perfectly. The monitor is bright, once it was calibrated the colors seem to be great. The main reason I got this is my eyes are not what they used to be, and this beast sits on my desk, running at 1920x1080 about 27-28" from my face.
Summary: I love this...it's huge, and works great. My last computer monitor was 22 inches. However, for some reason when I would try to utilize the 22", it would always stretch the screen...(no matter what settings I put it on). Therefore I really had a 19" screen. I refused to use the "WIDE SCREEN" feature because I hated stretched out images. This Monitor is PERFECT and does NOT stretch anything! I have it connected to my Macbook Pro.
Summary: This monitor is just awesome. Its really massive and has great picture. I assume sticker-gate is over, because my monitor didn't come with any stickers on it, so a non-issue there. I didn't think the settings on the monitor were overly bright or anything, and really I have not fiddled with the settings much. I got this monitor for playing The Sims 3. And it is awesome for that, everything is so big I can really see what is going on now.
Summary: I settled on this monitor after reading the reviews. The 2.5 ms response time was a winner for me as well as the value for the price. I am not disappointed as the picture is everything it needs to be. The comments about the sticker are no longer relevant as only the borders had protection and the cellophane came right off the edges easily...no problems. The connections in the back are a bit difficult to see but you only have to do it once.
Summary: PROS: 1. able to open and work on multiple apps at the same time. 2. I have a TV tuner hooked up to my computer. I can now watch TV in the corner of the screen while I am working on apps. 3. HD picture from the TV tuner is excellent on this monitor 4. HD Live sports used to blur a little on old monitor. They do not blur at all on this monitor. CONS 1. NONE. My monitor did not come with any sticky residue as others have complained.
