just ok, kind of

Joseph, Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Where to start..... graphic quality is good....but is marred by very aggressive anti-glare coating. Sand on your screen is what it looks like to me. About 1 month after warranty expired I started betting inky looking splotches on the right side of my monitor. At first I could only see them on white screens but later was able to notice them even when gaming. don't think they even sell these new anymore, if you're reading this try decide on buying used, my advice is don't!

Missing dedicated input switching button

gadgetmaster "gadgetmaster", Amazon

  • Summary: If you have multiple computers never buy a monitor that requires menus just to switch inputs. Monitors with multiple inputs should have a DEDICATED input button, one press to select the next available signal, two presses to select the one after that.

Great monitor but be warned

Jim in AZ, Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: This is a wonderful monitor with lots of real estate. You will need to use color management in Firefox to prevent over saturation due to the high gamut 0f 92%. The big draw back is the use of cheap anti-reflective material that leaves light solid colors looking dirty/botchy. You'll notice it with solid white bg of office apps and web browser. If this monitor came with glossy glass I'd give it 5 stars.

HP lp2475w

  • Summary: I went through 2 monitors before I received one without the color shift issue. If you go through HP support they will replace it as many times as you need but be aware it will be a refurb. Note: Dell sells a similar panel with the same issue but Dell will NOT replace your panel due to the color shift issue like HP will. I seriously considered giving up on this monitor until I received the one I have now which has no color shift issue.

great pictures, flawed text

RedRocker, Amazon
8 December 2009
  • Summary: The images on this monitor are superb, but the lack of contrast and a "thinness" to typeface when viewing text led me to return the unit. This may be what some critics are calling the "sparkle" on reading text, and it comes from the anti-glare coating. A shame, since the unit excels in many areas, but reading text became fatiguing after just a short amount of time.

DIsappointed after recieving the monitor

Kristina, Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: I recieved the monitor, calibrated it with X rite eye one. They instruct you to turn the brightness to zero to calibrate. After that i noticed a red side and a green side. I looked this problem up on the net and have read that others have had this problem repeatedly. I am returning it, but now i have no idea what to get! If this monitor did not have this problem it would be great!

Great h-ips panel at a bargain price

F. Jury "dsunglasses", Amazon
18 July 2009
  • Summary: I'm not an HP fan at all, but this monitor has a lot going for it. For starters it's the only 24" monitor available in the US with an IPS panel, that costs less then a grand. The NEC 2490 which features an IPS panel costs twice a much. However, in its favor the NEC is accurate out of the box, utilizes a polarizer and is generally considered to be one of the best monitors on the market, without splurging on a Lacie or Eizo.

Great panel plagued by uniformity issues

S. Modak "S. Modak", Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: This looks like a great panel on paper and to some extent it is. Excellent color and viewing angle. Calibrates very well to D65 gamma 2.2 and 120 candella / sq. mt. Pretty wide gamut to boot. However, multiple copies of this display showed pink on the left to green on the right color cast (tinge), more visible on a gray or white uniform background...which makes it unsuitable for photo editing work.

Flaky DisplayPort support, Inconvenient Service from HP

Steve Miscellaneous, Amazon
5 June 2009
  • Summary: I ordered mine direct from HP. The display quality is decent; my only minor complaint is that the bottom 1 cm is slightly dim. My biggest headache has been with the DisplayPort video input. HP shipped a defective DP cable with my monitor, and it caused me to waste a lot of time hacking before I discovered a HP customer advisory about it.

Great for gamers... but still flawed

Paul Gee, Amazon
13 March 2009
  • Summary: This is an IPS-tech monitor which makes it MUCH better than the TN-tech monitors sold at your local Best Buy. BUT, as mentioned by other reviewers, (1) there is a slight green-to-magenta slide in color from left to right when viewed with lots of white stuff on screen, and (2) when the screen is black, you can see the uneven lighting at the corners. I don't know if these flaws are HP's problem, or a tech flaw of all IPS-tech monitors.
