I hope you get a good one

lakemerritt, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: All I can say is that if you order one, I hope it's good the first time. I guess HP has discontinued this model, I bought one of the last two directly from amazon about a month ago. It came with a dead pixel, and HP has since sent 4 to my house, each one progressively more broken and ramshackle. I thought it was going to be a good quality product, and in all fairness, the color is really fantastic if you calibrate it... but I'm not sure if this is worth it.

Color Cast

M. Sheehan "mjbird", Amazon

  • Summary: Sooooo excited when this baby came in.... Set it up. Calibrated it. My excitement quickly went to sadness. 600 dollars and a very noticeable color shift from pink to green.

Too many dead pixels

Lucky Strike, Amazon
23 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased 5 HP LP2475W monitors for my business. 4 of them had multiple dead pixels - one has as many as 5 bad pixels! Most appeared as black dots, while a few were stuck bright pixels. I have owned over 20 LCD computer monitors over the years and I have never had any monitor with even a single dead pixel. HP must have had very poor quality control in the period these were manufactured, otherwise I'm sure many other reviewers of this model would note the same problem.

Purple fuzz

  • Summary: Monitor arrived and when plugged in produced nothing more than purple fuzz. I am very disappointed with this purchase since there were such good reviews of it online.

Awful pink tint on the right - HP does not try to fix it

George K, Amazon
20 November 2009
  • Summary: First I have to write that I do like the general quality of this monitor. Build quality is good, and the colors are good. However, as others have said this monitor has a pink tint on the right side. What amazes is most is how common this is, to the point I'm sitting here wondering if it exists in all the monitors or just in some of them. I ordered this monitor from Amazon and the tint was there. I called HP, they sent me a refurbished one and it was also there.

terrible monitor

Hi Tech Guy, Amazon
23 January 2009
  • Summary: I just purchased this monitor and it's going back. Problems galore: - A prominent dead (not stuck) pixel. - Heavy over-saturation tends to make this monitor unusable without calibration software, even for something as simple as looking at photos. - The OSD menu buttons at the lower right make odd noises, don't work reliably (constantly missing pushes or registering double pushes), and seem overly fragile.

buy something else!

Hung Tran, Amazon
17 January 2009
  • Summary: I did a lot of research and decided to buy this monitor based on numerous reviews, especially for the price range. I bought this monitor on amazon and it arrived with a bent base, cheaply made. I hooked up the monitor to a power mac g5 using the provided dvi cable, it took the monitor a bit to register the signal, and when I did get an image, it was really bad. There were dancing red/green pixels everywhere, and dead ones.

High Expectations Not Met

A. Gunawan, Amazon
11 January 2009
  • Summary: Everybody in photography forums have been talking about how good and affordable this monitor is. I purchased this to replace my old Dell 2407WFP that only has 72% NTSC color gamut with HIGH EXPECTATIONS. Guess what? It arrived with 1 stuck red sub-pixel noticeable on black background, and 1 deal pixel. Very disappointed. I thought the manufacturing standard for IPS panel is supposed to be better than those cheap TN-panel LCDs. I guess I was wrong.

KAW - Kaputt ab Werk

F. Plachetta, Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: Monitor bekommen, ausgepackt, angeschlossen, kaputt, eingepackt, zurückgesendet. Kaputt ab Werk. Mal sehen, ob das nächste Modell funktioniert. Wenn ja, werde ich diese Rezension aktualisieren. Dieses Exemplar zeigt leider weder das On-Screen-Menü an, noch ein Bild vom Mac über DisplayPort noch von einem Windows-Netbook über VGA. Nur der Ein-/Ausschalter funktioniert, alle andere Buttons zeigen keine Reaktion am Monitor. Schade.

  • Excerpt: クチコミにも投稿しましたが、 脚の不良でモニターが水平になりません。 初期不良交換で来た物も同じく水平になりませんでした。 モニターのフレームの右側が15mm低いため水平にならずかなり斜めになります。 同じ不良に当たった人の情報をネットで見ると右が大体10mmくらい低くて傾いている人が多いようです。 私の場合は15mmなのでかなり傾いていてモニターで作業をすると平衡感覚がおかしくなりそうです。 交換品も同じ不良でしたのでかなりの不良脚が出回っていると思います。 あと脚だけ交換してくれないのはかなりストレスになります。 交換品がくるたびにパネルのドット欠けや色むらを気にしなければなりません。
