Pretty decent deal

N/A, Newegg
9 November 2014
  • 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.

Great 16:10 IPS monitor

Nick W., Newegg
20 August 2013
  • 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"...
  • Pros: +16:10! +Great color (although some caveats, read below) +Lots of inputs, including DisplayPort
  • Cons: -Really bright power LED, although it can be shut off in the OSD -Some QA/defect issues with weird lines/blobs on the screen -Possible slight compatibility quirks/annoyances with DisplayPort -CCFL backlighting makes it bigger/heavier/more power hungry than newer monitors

For the present - Relieved

Anonymous, Newegg
14 April 2011
  • Summary: Nec EC Display Solutions LCD2490W2-BK-SV Black 24" 8ms Height,Swivel.Pivot & Tilt Adjustable IPS Panel (you get what you pay for?!)
  • Pros: Great specs- number of decent reviews- I gave it - four stars over the fact of the issue I had to face.
  • Cons: (Disturbing Q&A our of China-or, is it materials use or both?) This is my third and I sincerely hope last review on this issue. My last phone call to HP's main Tech Support and my having indicated that I was following up with on-going reviews seems to have paid off. The local on the road tech sup...

Really Nice, but a Campfire

Quintin S., Newegg
13 April 2011
  • Summary: Terrific monitor in all ways but the extra heat.
  • Pros: I bought it mostly because it's a x1200 vertical, not 1080. And because it's IPS so there is no negative hologram when I move my head around. And last of all the portrait mode feature of the stand (which is very sensitive to the angle problem with non-IPS monitors. Terrific in these ways!
  • Cons: I would have bought another one and given 5 eggs if it weren't for the heat. The monitor is hotter than my other ones. It feels like I'm sitting in front of a campfire or my fireplace. It's too bad. It's a great monitor in many ways, but the heat keeps it from being perfect. You might not notice ...

Great monitor, except ...

Ken B., Newegg
13 April 2011
  • Summary: Great tech support so far. Less than a week from when I contacted HP until I'm getting a replacement monitor today. Tech support has been efficient, polite, and prompt. I just hope the replacement is a decent one. A few weeks ago, I'd have happily rated this as 5 eggs.
  • Pros: I've used this monitor for almost 2 years. It has over 5200 backlight hours on it. It calibrates very well, and has been a joy to use ...
  • Cons: up until a few weeks ago, when I noticed the same meandering, vertical blobs that the last few posts have mentioned. I'm getting a replacement monitor today, but it is very disturbing to learn that I'm not the only one who has experienced this. I can only hope that their newer (?) ones have solve...

Uneven color distribution

Ruslan I., Newegg
9 March 2011
  • Summary: I'm not crazy about the OSD controls. Specifically, I always find it confusing when "-" and "+" are used as up/down buttons. Or is it down/up? I can never remember.
  • Pros: Specs, which is why you are considering this model, aren't you? It has high resolution, is very bright, has wide gamut. Colors look especially vivid when put side by side with another monitor. There are plenty of inputs and outputs.
  • Cons: Uneven color balance across the monitor. If you work with images in full screen, it is not noticeable. But maximize any editor with a white background and people will be stopping asking why is your monitor pink or green, depending on how you calibrate. In fact, the best I can get is where the lef...

Going strong for almost 2 years

Anonymous, Newegg
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Some people complain about color accuracy and need for calibration, but ehh looks close enough to me.
  • Pros: Big, pretty, low lag display. Looks great, haven't had any major issues with it. Seems to have great build quality too, I'm hoping it lasts me another ten years at least.
  • Cons: Occasionally (every other day or so) the input will cut out, resulting in a black screen for about three seconds before it comes back on. Happens with DVI and component and HDMI inputs from different sources, so it seems to be an issue with the monitor itself. Not frequent enough to be really agg...

Bright vivid colors, lots of inputs, easy to use

Anonymous, Newegg
13 October 2010
  • Summary: I hope to keep this monitor long enough to make worth the $550. So far I'm pleased but there's always room for improvement.
  • Pros: - No dead pixels - Bright vivid colors - Ergonomic - Huge resolution (1920 x 1200) - Easy to use OSD - Lots of inputs
  • Cons: - Back light bleeding aka "glow" - Cable management system on the back sucks - Bezel is not really flush with the LCD in the right bottom corner, standby LED light "bleeds" through the gap (noticeable only when monitor is turned off) - Standby LED too bright but can be turned off from the OSD menu
