Summary: Prons: to numerous to list Cons: does not tie my shoes After extremely extensive research I bought this monitor and hooked it up a couple of days ago by just plugging it in - I never installed the drivers etc. This was on a 7 year old Gateway running XP. Several people to not believe it is a 24 inch monitor because it looks larger. Recently I hooked up its USB capabilities and they worked flawlessly as well.
Summary: I received one of these at work, as I do a lot of data analysis and visualizations. I liked it so much, I bought one for home use. Setup is easy, the device is solid, comes with all the cables you need, and has held up extremely well for the last 6 months I have owned it. One note - my work monitor occasionally goes black for several seconds while I am actively using it. My home monitor has never done that.
Summary: Great performance. The best monitor in the market. I love it/ Great quality monitor. Just take it out of the box and plug - nothing to install or setup. It took me less than 10 mins from the time I open the box, plug it in and started using it.
Summary: I had seen this similar style of monitor at work and decided to upgrade my home office with them. Purchased two of them and used a Ergotron dual arm mount. They come out looking great. Some people say its a drawback that it only has VGA and DVI connections in the back, but I don't believe a proper monitor should be using a HDMI. Primary uses at home are gaming, web surfing, and personal finances.
Summary: I was able to grab this monitor at a very good price (new for $159). In general, it's a really nice monitor. It's very very sharp (this can be adjusted via the menu). However the reason for the 4-star rating is that its colors are not as vivid as that of my old HP w2408. I feel the colors on the LA2405x are a bit more dull (at the same Brightness, Contrast, and Color settings). But other than that, I'm very happy with the purchase.
Summary: I have two monitors. This one works great with the other one I have. They are both HP. One is HP w2207 and this one HP CPQ LA2405x, Both have the adjustable height so I can move them up and down turn them length way, and tilt them both. I would highly recommend the HP monitor that you can adjust the height 6". No dead pixels. The unit comes with a business quality stand, very stable and firm, moves up and down, tilts forward/backward, swivels on rectangular base.
