not good for text processing

Xin F., Newegg
23 September 2008
  • Summary: i originally bought this panel for programming. but i dont know if it is my VGA output that dims the output. I compared the text in both 2065 and dell 1705fp, the latter got sharper text but worse color representation.
  • Pros: amazing color representation. lower price compared to apple cinema and other LCDs using S-IPS panels working stand allowing adjustments portrait mode
  • Cons: texts not that sharp compared with S-PVA or MVA panels, for example, DELL Ultrasharp 1705FP or 2007wfp

I like this monitor

Craig R., Newegg
12 January 2008
  • Summary: I got 2 of these when I built a new computer and after a year of liking them I got 2 more for my other computer. Side by side you can see that the older ones are obviously dimmer than the new ones.
  • Pros: Was one of the only afordable 1600 x 1200 resolution LCD monitors I could get at the time. The stand has amazing dextarity and can move in any direction without having to get up and mess with it... Even up and down. USB ports make it handy for pluging in keyboard, mouse, USB mic/headphones so you...
  • Cons: I have these setup perfectly and will not move them so I'll never be able to put a thumb drive in the USB slots because there is no way to find them without rotating the screen on it's base. They are ALL out of sight (which I still prefer but you may not... but you may not care about rotating the...

  • Pros: Impeccable viewing angles, no bad pixels. I'm using 2 in portrait mode via DVI. Has every cable known to man. Software and drivers worked well. For office-type work a fine monitor: low glare and good resolution.
  • Cons: A little bit of light leak; not a monitor I'd recommend highly for movie watching.

Worth the money

Roger D., Newegg
27 May 2007
  • Summary: A good all-rounder that can handle text, gaming, graphics, and photo work. However, you don't get a $500-$600 monitor for $350 as some would suggest - But it's a very good choice if you don't have or want to spend the extra $150-$250.
  • Pros: Build quality, no dead pixels, 2 vga and 2 dvi cables, USB hub, s-ips panel, 5" height adjustment, tilt, pivot, 0.255mm dot pitch works well with ClearType and 120 dpi setting, 20" size is big enough without causing "windmill head".
  • Cons: Anti-glare surface is a little excessive ("gritty"), minor flicker at low brightness levels, quite sensitive to ambient light level, some backlight bleed in the lower corners, analog performance is good but not great, 0.255 dot pitch forces 40+ crowd to enable ClearType and 120 dpi setting.

  • Summary: I may have to calibrate the monitor at some point. It's a bit on the bright side with the default settings.
  • Pros: Good price-performance ratio
  • Cons: The cable channels on the stand are too thin and it was very hard to put them in. It's a good thing you only have to do it once. Hopefully HP will improve the cable management in the next generation. My unit did come with an always on red pixel which is only visible on dark backgrounds. It took m...

good monitor, good price

Steven Z., Newegg
31 October 2006
  • Summary: Not a perfect monitor, but the price/quality ratio is very attractive.
  • Pros: Great price for what you get. Has high quality SIPS panel with excellent color consistency.
  • Cons: Small brightness variation due to viewing angle, though thus is the nature of LCD I suppose. Also backlight bleed around edges slightly noticable in dark room, though thus is also the nature of LCD.

great monitor

Matthew S., Newegg
18 September 2006
  • Pros: no dead pixels.. sharp screen with fast response times. Muchn nicer than the anti-glare coated panels with hugely increased brightness levels. Great 2 x DVI inputs (great because I own no D-SUB cards) and nice stand. This comination makes for a great screen to work on with documents and developme...
  • Cons: Max brightness could be a *tad* higher but im glad by default its not blinding. Colors seem to be a little soft.

Superb for its time - still going strong

Daniel A. Dougan, Amazon
15 March 2006
  • Summary: For its time (mine was manufactured in July 2006 so it's more than 9 years old now), this was a killer monitor. The USB ports are super handy as well. These days, it's a bit of a relic with its 4:3 aspect ratio and use of DVI without HDCP instead of HDMI or DisplayPort.

Almost perfect
