Summary: After almost 6 years, this monitor is still going strong. It has several times started showing a strange picture with red vertical lines; luckily it can be fixed by power cycling. Has not done so in the last 6 months -- knock wood. I am taking one star off for that.
Summary: Of course newer screens have LED backlights and use less power, and have even better color gamuts, but side-by-side I am still amazed at how good it is even for today.
Pros: I bought this monitor 6 1/2 years ago at a price that is comparable to today's 30" 2560 IPS Wide Color Gamut class. I have moved this screen 3 times to different locations. The Backlight is still perfect, it still has 0 dead/stuck pixels and it is one of the best products I have ever owned. The c...
Cons: This is a wildly minor point: In standby, the device searches for an input signal from all 3 DVI-D inputs by switching between them using relays. They make a rather noticeable clicking sound that can get annoying if you're susceptible to this kind of thing (sort of like a ticking clock).
Summary: This is a fantastic monitor. I have been using it for over three years now. It is my main monitor for my main computer. On average, it is used over 40 hours a week. What is this monitor good for? 1. Video games. 2. Photoshop. 3. CAD software such as AutoCAD or MicroStation. 4.
HP LP3065 30" LCD Monitor review after several years
Dave Bing, Amazon
8 May 2012
Summary: I have had my HP LP3065 monitor for several years now and thought i would share my comments. I set it up in landscape mode with a second 24" monitor in portrait mode to the side. Most os my work is CAD related with no gaming so response was not an issue or concern.
Summary: Originally bought this monitor in 2008. It broke two years later, just wouldn't turn on. HP replaced it free of charge. Went to turn on my computer this morning and the replacement monitor is now dead. This one only lasted a year.. Exact same problem. Just dead and won't turn on, no lights, nothing.
Summary: Was a great display until this happened. Guess I just got a bad one.
Pros: Big, bright, good price for a 30", calibrates well and reproduces colors fairly accurately for this price range (after calibration).
Cons: A line of malfunctioning pixels began to show after 1 year of ownership. It was faint and I did nothing about it. I am currently writing this at the two year mark and it is now a line of dead pixels that stretch across 2/3 of the screen. It is quite distracting and for all purposes this monitor i...
Summary: im calling out the person smoke, dont listen to him, he doesnt know what he is talking about. the only reason you cant play ps3 or xbox on this monitor is because it doesnt have that connection, not because of the resolution.
Pros: This is a nice monitor for for general computer use. I've had this monitor for a year and it's still working smoothly.
Cons: The one thing I'd warn everyone is that this Monitor's native resolution is too high for xbox/ps3, etc. So if you try to play a gaming system on this monitor expecting it to display at 1080, it won't happen. So if you want a monitor you can use for general computer use and console, you better cho...
Summary: My goal when buying was to have the most immersive system possible for World of Warcraft -- and I succeeded beyond all expectations. I don't play WoW any more, but this size of a screen is useful for my programming & IT work.
Pros: Large size, high resolution. Easy to configure at 2560x1600 with Linux & NVidia.
Cons: No real cons. It is heavy and takes up a lot of space, of course. I am disappointed that the 2560x1600 monitors haven't dropped in price like the 1920x1200's did years ago (just months after I bought one :) ) This thing makes me feel claustrophobic when I work on my 24" monitor at the office. It ...
