Excerpt: (1 items) When it comes to readable documents and vivid images, the HP LP2275w offers a solid, no-frills display that would make a good choice for users seeking a widescreen monitor that delivers the best of both worlds. At $349, it is priced slightly higher than other 22-inch displays, but its image quality would be worth the cost.
Pros: Great overall image quality, Clean design, USB hub
Summary: This is an excellent monitor for pro users. It may be overkill for some home users, given that you can buy two good consumer 22-inch monitors for this price, but if you want to enjoy a display that comes closer to image accuracy than a cheap TN type, look out for this HP LP2275w.
Conclusion: HP LP2275W impresses us in almost every aspect and it challenges the much acclaimed Eizo S2231W, which also has a 22 inch S-PVA panel – but is selling at a higher price. HP LP2275W does not have quite as extensive setting options and not as deep blacks but besides that the two monitors have a lot of similar picture characteristics and many common features. But this also says something about the picture quality on the LP2275W.
Pros: Nice picture quality, Blacks and contrast, Ergonomics and functionality
Cons: 32.8cm x 50.6cm x 25.3cm (with stand), 8,5 kg, 2-port USB Hub, -, -, Response time, Narrower viewing angles than LP2475W, Minor deviations in out-of-box settings
Conclusion: Overall HP have managed to produce another impressive display offering. It might be a little more expensive than some of the competiton in this sector, with a retail price of around £275 GBP, but it really does offer some features which separate it from its rivals. It's one of the few non-TN Film panels in this sector, and that immediately puts it in its own niche market.
Pros: Good colour accuracy, even with default settings. Excellent once calibrated, Wide viewing angles thanks to rare use of S-PVA technology, Excellent ergonomic adjustment range and 'premium' features and specs
Cons: Some minor build quality issues including slight buzzing and fussy DVI interface, Quite limited connectivity options, lack of D-sub interface, Below average brightness uniformity
