Excerpt: This is the best monitor I have ever used the color is just too accurate to pick. Much batter than the ips display on Mac. The only drawback which isn't a big deal is the lack of mini display port and pip mode only works with composite cable but not like display port and dvi but no one will use pip on a 1200p 24inch display I believe.
Excerpt: I use the monitor for general tasks but selected this one in particular for use with Lightroom, Photoshop, and video editing. It is a professional monitor with many adjustments and a lot of performance related information readily accessible. Monitor settings can be adjusted using either the OSD or the HP Display Assistant software.
Pros: Adjustable Color Spaces, Appears To Be Well Built, Excellent color
Excerpt: Bought 3 of those a few days ago. Two out of three monitors had bad pixels (5 dead; 1 green sub on). HP's response was impresive, they sent a tech on site to take care of exchanging the two défective units. The software issue mentioned on my first review below, has been fixed also.So 5 star is what I give to the product and the support dept all together.NOTE: You definiteky need to use the calibration tool in order to get the expected results.
Excerpt: As a digital artist I've been searching for the elusive perfect monitor that displays all colors and values beautifully in every circumstance (and has to cost less than a car) for awhile, and I think the HP DreamColor LP2480zx comes pretty close. It's passed every calibration test I put it through, and is beautiful to work with.
Summary: A splendid color trustworthy monitor when paired with the Dreamcolor Color Calibration Solution (B1F63AA) (200-350$). I could not be happier with the price (700-800$) and quality. I did consider the 4K HP alternative, but the price was double, and for most of my purposes, unneeded as of yet. I really appreciated the variety of inputs this monitor has: HDMI, Display Port, DVI-D, DVI--I, component, s-video.. Very useful.
Excerpt: This monitor is a classic; although first released at least four years ago, the product remains an accurate and versatile imaging device for photo and video work. I use it primarily for PhotoShop still-image editing. The confidence gained in working with an accurate, calibrated color image must (literally) be seen to be fully appreciated.The technical and usability advantages of this monitor are numerous.

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.
