Summary: This monitor exceeded my expectations! I took a tip from another reviewer to tweak the settings, and it made a gorgeous screen even more beautiful. The colors are more vivid and clear than any other monitor I've owned. I've always had good luck with HP products. My old HP monitor still works perfectly, but I wanted the larger screen to help with my vision. I connected it with an HDMI cable and didn't experience any issues.
Summary: Fantastic display. Its my second large HP monitor. The first is many years old and is still going. Just wanted a little bigger and this filled the bill. Beautiful colors and easy to read text. Took some doing to get the picture to reach across the entire width/height of the screen but finally figured out how to zoom in the driver software. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to move up and down instead of just tilt.
Summary: For the money, in my mind, this monitor represents excellent value. Nice crisp colors with precise images. I bought an additional display port adaptor so I could use it on my MacBook. No need to spend $1K on the Apple product, this one gets it done, unless you are a designer or architect, then you made need the finer resolution. But for us mere mortals, this specimen is fine.
Summary: I looked at several monitors at local Fry's store. They did not have this particular model. But i ended up buying it based on two things: very decent reviews and the aesthetics. I am very happy with this monitor. It is very stable. Colors are great. I used to have a 23 inch monitor before. This is a big just. Another interesting thing about this monitor is that the bezel is very thin. The entire face looks like a screen.
Summary: Why did i wait so long to get a BIG LED monitor? This 27" monitor is HUGE. yeah, im going from a 15in to a 27in but wow, the brightness, sharpness, colors, everything about this monitor is amazing, If you are deciding on purchasing this, get it, its absolutely amazing.
Summary: Good monitor for the price. I've got an Apple Thunderbolt monitor of the same size and it has me a bit spoiled. This monitor is a solid workhorse and the price is hard to beat at well less than half the price of the Apple.
