Summary: This monitor was purchased from Amazon almost 6 months ago (11/2010). Since then I have had no problems with it. I purchased the monitor to edit video using Adobe Premiere CS5. I required more screen real estate, and I needed a monitor with accurate color. This monitor is NOT a professional HD production monitor (which runs about $4000), consequently it's not a snap to calibrate for that purpose, but I understood that when I bought it.
Summary: Only 20 pounds, and I had this unpacked and plugged in in under two minutes. The stand is the most impressive I've seen. Easy to mount the screen (one click). Tilts and swivels easily, but stops when you want. One thumb to release the height adjustment, and the counterbalance makes it easy...as well as the molded-in handle at the top-rear of the chassis. Strangely, with HDMI out from my laptop, I could only get about the center 2/3rds of the screen to work.
Summary: HP LP2475W uses 24" IPS panel making it very well suited for almost any purpose. It is fast enough to play video games as it has 6 ms GtG response with about 22 ms input lag - actual ghosting is only a bit noticable due to overdrive mistakes (showing only on certain translations) and input lag is just below noticable level for most people. Picture is very good due to LG.Philips LM240W04 H-IPS 12 ms panel.
Summary: I have had this monitor for over 6 months. I first read all the reviews I could find and found that both good and bad reviews matched what I found. First the bad news. 1. This monitor does have a lot of back-light bleed-through, especially at off axis angles. In bright material it is not noticeable but is quite noticeable when viewing dark material. Most TN monitors have considerably less bleed-through.
Summary: Before I bought this monitor, I had been using a 19" CRT. The 24" LCD Panel is better in many ways. I especially like that I can have two full browser panels open at the same time, side-by-side, without needing to have a second monitor. I'm used to using dual-head at work, where I have a pair of 22" LCD panels. I'm especially fond of the IPS panel -- it makes all the difference in the world and is well worth the extra money.
Summary: First, two relatively minor gripes. I initially ordered 2 of these monitors from Amazon. One was fine but the other had a roundish about 3mm dim spot near the middle of the screen. It was hard to notice except with a white background, but was definitely there. I think this was an isolated problem, though and not an issue with the model in general. Which leads to the 2nd gripe, this one with Amazon.
Summary: I got this monitor because I wanted something better than TN but didn't want to go crazy with price. I think this is a very good unit for the price. I'm not quite as picky about the colors as some people and I think this monitor looks good. I had to decrease the brightness quite a but. Since this is a wide gamut display it tends to blow out some colors but like I said I'm not too picky about that, some may like it. I used a Spyder 3 Pro do do color calibration.
