Great Monitor, just need additional item

Redd, B&H Photo
11 January 2015
  • Excerpt: The monitor is great once you get it calibrated and adjusted properly. Using this monitor is not too Apple friendly when trying to get the maximum use of the 10 bit and RGB Rec 709 color space.
  • Pros: Amazing Picture
  • Cons: Not Apple Friendly

Great monitor for professionals

Sean P., Newegg
31 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for gaming because I wanted a color accurate LED screen. It works great but in retrospect if you do not have a professional purpose for this monitor, purchase something cheaper. I think I ordered this directly from HP at the time. Newegg has not always carried it.
  • Pros: Amazing color when calibrated. Response time good enough for gaming. Holds up well after over a year of ownership.
  • Cons: Super expensive. Don't buy this if you are not going to calibrate it and use it professional. Other reviewer's comment about black levels and brightness are accurate.

Still limited by LCD technology

Christopher T., Newegg
13 July 2010
  • Summary: I should make it clear that I do NOT own this monitor. I was using it in the school's imaging lab, and was very impressed with it.
  • Pros: •30-bit IPS LCD panel (1 billion colors allow you to see things in images you never noticed before, though in many cases the monitor's gamut far exceeds that of the source images) •Built-in calibration profiles are pretty much dead-on accurate for bringing the monitor's gamut into alignment with ...
  • Cons: •HP's claimed CRT-comparable black-levels are artificial. They produced by dimming the back-light, in much the same way that many manufacturers use to cheat with the Dynamic Contrast Ratios they advertise for their TN-panel monitors to achieve inflated numbers of over 30,000:1 when the true panel...

DreamColor Monitor

S S., Newegg
11 May 2010
  • Summary: HP has very little information on their site regarding support for this monitor and its profiling kit. I admit I went through a lot of struggles and frustration to get the monitor profiled but now I’m very pleased with it.
  • Pros: This is a beautiful monitor. I’m a nature photographer and work almost exclusively in Adobe RGB. This monitors built in profile is a real plus. In addition, the LED backlighting and IPS panel make for wonderful viewing for photo editing My previous monitor was an HP LP2465 which my wife is now us...
  • Cons: Not sure what usefulness the display assistant software is so after some experimentation I have stopped loading it. HP’s manual doesn’t provide much information other than setup and connection diagrams. I could have figured that stuff out without the manual. This monitor can only be profiled usin...

Kleine Schwächen für ein High-End Produkt

Tim Buktu, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: Top ausgestatteter RGB-LED Monitor mit allen gängigen Eingangsschnittstellen (inkl. Kabel). Der Monitor hat wie man in dieser Preisklasse erwartet ein exzellentes Bild (Schärfe, Kontrast, Blickwinkel, Leuchtdichte).
