Summary: Just going to post this as a comment on HP quality. I purchased this monitor at the end of 2011 and it just died. So it had a about 4 yr life span. Don't really consider that a good life. I won't buy HP again
Summary: Assuming you get a good unit, this is a great deal if you need a cheap IPS monitor.
Pros: Great 24" IPS workstation monitor for a 1/3 of it's original price. I use this monitor for color calibrated photography and works very well. I've owned this monitor's smaller brother, the HP LP2275w, for many years and I still love it. It's a workstation monitor, and is thusly much heavier/larger...
Cons: This is more about OK Store, and less about the monitors themselves.
Summary: I bought this monitor new in December 2009 and have been using it heavily since then. Overall, I've been pretty happy with it. At the time, it had pretty much everything I was looking for in a monitor - 16:10 panel, IPS, lots of inputs (was especially excited with DisplayPort), and "professional"...
Cons: -Really bright power LED, although it can be shut off in the OSD
Summary: More than 1 year after the purchase and I'm still happy camper. I only had to part with it to upgrade to the newer ZR2440w. Was hard to part with it after so much time but it didn't leave the household (wife uses it)
Pros: - No dead or stuck pixels or other problems after 1+ years of use
Cons: - Very pricey especially now that they have been discontinued
Summary: The only thing that would make this better is a polarizing filter and RGB LED backlighting (aka the HP dreamcolor series 2k+ price tag).
Pros: I spent a great deal of time researching before picking this monitor as it was the best thing that could be gotten for ~500 dollars, the next step up at the time was easily 1200 bucks.
Cons: I know I said it is fast for an IPS, but coming from a high end CRT there is a noticeable lag at first. But I noticed that with any TFT panel, now over a year later I would be hard pressed to notice the lag between this and a fast 2ms TN type panel. Granted my CRT arguably still feels a tiny bit ...
Summary: To sum up. this monitor gives monitor that cost more than twice as much a run for their money. It is an exceptional monitor.
Pros: I have had this monitor for over three years and it is an amazing monitor. I believe it is the best HIPS 24" monitor available unless you go to an NEC at more than twice the cost. This monitor has been rated higher than the vaunted Dell U2510 by professional reviewers. It is just that good.
Cons: I can't think of any cons. I thought that by now this monitor would not be cutting edge, but it is still one of the best monitors available. LED and 3D monitors just don't have the same quality. Possibly a 120HtZ LED monitor will come around.
Summary: i purchased this monitor late 2008 right after release and it ran solid for a good 18 months mainly being used for video and photo editing. one day i was editing went to make food during a render and came back to the monitor just off and unresponsive.
Pros: IPS panel plethora of inputs adjustable stand including swivel 8 port usb hub excellent warranty see below
Cons: none not really a con but it is very bright, i usually have the brightness around 18-20% and its still too bright for total dark viewing
Summary: I bought this monitor for graphics and photography use, and am generally very pleased with it. I was surprised to find that the 2000-era Apple Cinema Display I upgraded from (which, granted, was a very fine, $2000-ish panel in its day) offered very similar quality, image-wise.
Pros: Color rendition is excellent. Brightness is ridiculous (but can be toned down to a good level). Build quality and attention to detail are very good. Having a full 1200 pixel height is nice compared to most of the TV-spec panels out there for cheaper. Color adjustment controls built-in are quite g...
Cons: Very expensive for what is ultimately a not-huge improvement over panels that cost 1/3 as much. No CF/SD card reader. USB hub ports are fiddly to reach without actually peering around the bezel. The stand is enormously deep -- good place to stick the laptop (a 15" MacBook Pro), but pretty annoyin...
Summary: I use this monitor on a dedicated video editing system and am very happy with it.
Pros: I had to take a minute to praise the HP tech support. I purchased this monitor in September of 2010 and it recently went out on me and quit working. I called the HP Customer support number provided on the NewEgg site and on day two a new monitor was delivered to me. Granted, the monitor should no...
