Summary: Over the years Eggs packing has went downhill. Meaning these plastic pouch things often arrive deflated and the product arrives loose in the container. The peanut things worked much better. I don't know the cost difference but the pouches are not a plus.
Pros: Good clean display (video). Adjustable stand that is excellent. I use 3 displays on my computer and this is replacing a 9 year old display that is starting to go dim. The menu options allowed me to setup and match the existing display. Wish it had a HDMI connector.
Cons: Two minor scratches on the stand. I'm sure I could rub them out if I cared to. The packing completely sucked. The display came in a box inside a box. The bubble wrap and packing between the boxes was excellent. The inter box had 4 of those bag/pouch like things that have went flat. The monitor ha...
Summary: Resolution is 1600x1050, which is advertised, so it's not a con, but if you're looking for a real 1080p monitor, you're going to have to spend quite a bit more
Pros: Great monitor, size is nice, stand is good, bezel looks cool. Overall for the price, you are kind of taking a risk on a refurb model, but mine came out wonderful. Some wear on the bezel, but to be expected.
Cons: Very good, sometimes the monitor doesn't receive signal from my DP cables, and i have to mess with it a bit. I hope that does not become a bigger problem in the future.
Summary: I liked the monitor enough to place another order, grabbing another one and hoping for the best. I can not find another monitor of this size and quality for this price... I feel like I got this at a steal. The box comes with a VGA cable, fyi.
Pros: The price was right! Good picture. Good size. Portrait mode. Adjustable height. Overall looks great.
Cons: Just a little scuff on the top right frame but nothing distracting.
Summary: I have always been a fan of HP products. I have to say I was a little disappointed with this monitor. It didn't have many extra features. One of the biggest disappointments was it did not have the ability to mount on a multi mount.
Very good value at $100 or less (w/pwr & 1 video cbl, no screen flaws)

Summary: Pros: Sharp and distinctive appearance; firm swiveling stand with screen tilt, pivot, and height adjustment; VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort connectors with monitor signal auto-sensing; extensive on-screen control menus; 2-port USB hub on screen back; optional 2.5W USB-powered speaker bar with volume...
Summary: Our company bought tons of these and we are all very happy with our new monitors. I would say for graphics it's not the perfect monitor but for business applications I am very happy. I am buying another one so I can have a second monitor.
