Excerpt: I'm a producer/editor. I do tons of on-air promotions for TV. I need a critical monitor to cut my projects with so when they air there won't be any unsightly surprises. The monitor MUST be calibrated with "DreamColor Advanced Profiling Solution" device, that adds another $350 to your investment.
Summary: Professionals must buy, worth the price. Prints are identical to what is seen on the screen. On screen display give you options for many professional color spaces that are factory calibrated and VERY accurate. There is no dithering, there is no bleeding. Stand allows for height, tilt, swivel, and turn (VESA mounts too!). Calibrated according to HP lasts 1000 hours, but, it lasts much longer than that.
Excerpt: 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 using and loves. I did not compare the LP2480zx with other high end monitors before purchasing so I won't comment in that regard.
Excerpt: I am using the 2480zx for photo editing and initial photo processing, as well as normal personal computer use. Color accuracy and sharpness make my previous monitors very second rate. Amateur/professional photographer and photo researcher. Excellent price for a top quality product.
Summary: This is by far the best computer monitor out there currently that can also double as just a monitor for all your video/photo/animation needs. Is it the best in all those categories? Maybe...maybe not. For me, for now....it definitely is. It all depends on how the end user configures the monitor; as it seems endlessly configurable!! The presets help if you don't want to spend time tweaking it to your perfection.
Summary: I've been using this monitor for the past week, it truly is a wonderful monitor. Bright, crisp, rich color (makes my CINTIQ monitor look dim and yellow when used side by side.) I had a lot of trouble getting this monitor to work with my Power Mac tower (quad-core Intel Xeon.) The monitor would claim "No Input Signal" and go to sleep whenever it was attached. I was using a DVI to VGA adapter cable.
Dreamcolor Amazing Color Depth Especially When Using Colormunki
20 May 2009
Summary: I have a pair of these hp ips monitors and have been a dream to work with throughout the years. Im a multimedia designer/developer so color control is a must. i also color calibrated them with colormunki display...they look exactly the same...everytime all day...high end inputs are great...only thing they tend to run hot maybe just me since i run them 24/7.
Summary: Своих денег стоит если вам действительно нужен ооочень широкий цветовой охват (заметно шире Adobe RGB)
Pros: Суперская глубина цвета и плавность цветовых переходов (особенно в режиме Full Gamut), причем разница в пользу этого HP заметна сразу же даже по сравнению с недешевыми Nec. RGB Led подсветка и 10-bit матрица с поляризатором — отличительные черты этой модели. Отличные коммуникационные возможности. (DVI, HDMI, Display port а так же аналоговые S-Video и Composite)
Cons: В большинстве экземпляров наблюдается неравномерность цветовой температуры подсветки в разных углах матрицы. Для профилирования требуется довольно дорогой калибратор (специально адаптированная для этого монитора модель на основе X-Rite Eye One Display 2)
