Summary: The Display in the end is great. My gripe is that every word of the enclosed documentation for startup was provided in some non-English language. VGA, DVI-D, and HDMI Display connection ports were provided but only the VGA and DVI-D cables were enclosed. The HDMI was the only connection I needed so the first thing I had to do before I could connect the Display was go to Walmart and buy an HDMI cable for $17 bucks.

Summary: It worked right away with my Macbook Air out of the box. (I purchased a Thunderbolt HDMI cable at the same time). So that was nice! But the crispness of the screen isn't as good as I was hoping. The MacBook has a very sharp picture, and the HP Monitor one isn't nearly as good. But it's bigger so that's what matters. I needed a bigger screen for everyday work...I was getting neck strain looking at a small laptop monitor all the time.
Summary: I like how this monitor looks, thin bezel is nice and colors on it look vivid. Unfortunately I need it for a lot of text editing and reading and it's terrible for text. Letters look slightly out of focus and just not clear enough. I had HP w2338h which I was replacing after it died that had much better clarity of text. I was hoping new HP monitor would be at least on that level or better but I was wrong. New technology does not mean better this time.
Summary: This Pavillion 23xi its a good monitor, it is not an outstanding monitor. It replaced my HPw2207 and it is no better, the colors in general are not very vibrant as I expected to be and the pictures are kind of dull..... so I give it 3 stars because (for me) there has been no improvement in more than 4 years, in fact I don't like it much more than the older monitor I replaced with.
Summary: I got myself one of these to add some screen space to my awful 12.5 inch tablet laptop that was 'issued' to me (despite the fact that I still had to pay 2 grand for it, but that's another story) at the Colorado School for Wayward Boys and Girls. Got this one through HP directly. It took me about 15 minutes to set up completely, at least half of which was dealing with my cord situation, which is my problem and not yours...hopefully.
Summary: I decided to purchase a second monitor, so I purchased an additional HP. I am happy with the color and contrast of the old HP monitor, but I cannot get the new monitor to come close to matching the color, contrast and brightness. It's more than a little annoying to have two monitors with such a different picture. The monitor wouldn't be bad as a stand alone, but the difference is stark side by side with my old HP monitor.
