Summary: I have had this monitor since they came out in 2008, six years later and it's still running strong! I used it as a computer monitor for a while, I then used an HDMI to DVI cable and had my Xbox 360 connected to it. I had my Xbox running in 720p mode and the image was fantastic! This display is very glossy but this leads to a much higher contrast with very deep blacks. I highly recommend this monitor and most any other displays from HP.
Summary: This monitor is great for everything from watching movies or document writing even YouTube.Its crisp and the color is great and if not it has easy to use buttons to adjust it all to your satisfaction. This is my fourth HP lcd monitor. I purchased the W22” Widescreen LCD Flat Panel for mother, W19” Widescreen LCD Flat Panel for my wife and this is my second W17” Widescreen LCD Flat Panel for dual monitor setup in my office to simulate my work environment.
Summary: Reasonably priced, great deal for a refurb compared to $200+ brand new. Ideal as a multi-monitor laptop setup. Bought a pair of monitors and used a set of USB/DVI adapters. All running at 1440x900, native res(monitors) & non-native res(laptop). Overall decent picture quality, bright screen, and vivid color (caveat: may be difficult to calibrate colors for graphic software - contrast, gamma, and color temp are hard to judge).
Summary: I really like this monitor. I have had it over a year with no problems. There are only two little issues I had, neither with the quality of the monitor - first, when it was shipped, I somehow thought it would be in a plain box, but it was shipped in its original box, meaning there was a obvious monitor box sitting on my front porch for everyone to see. I am glad it didn't get swiped!
Summary: I love the sleek, space-saving design of it. It really helps keep my desk clutter-free. The built-speakers are also a good function as well as it's tilt and swivel feature. The 17 inch display, is not too large or too small; perfect for getting work done effectively. Mostly, I like the fact that it's an HP product, compatible with my tower. Only trust HP with my computer preferences.
