Stops working just after warranty expires

carefreemom, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: This was a nice enough monitor for the first year. At about 13 months, the screen started going blank after about being on for just 3 seconds. After researching this on the web, I learned that many others have had this issue and it almost always occurs about 13 months after purchase which is just past the warranty period! DO NOT BUY. It's really painful to toss out what still feels like a "new" monitor. I will never buy HP again.

Necessary Review

  • Summary: I didn't buy this from Amazon, but feel it is necessary to warn about the consistent problem with this particular HP monitor. Please do a Google search for "problem hp monitor." You will find that the w1907 will be an option if you have suggestions enabled. If you care to spend the time reading about the same situation over and over again, go ahead.

really poor text quality

  • Summary: I was surprised to see so many reviews touting this monitor as having "sharp" or "crisp" picture quality because my experience with it has been anything BUT! Only a few months after buying it, the monitor would go all blurry. I tried to de-Gauss but any correction causes only a temporary improvement. Most days I can barely read text on it, the blurring is so bad.

Flashing On/OFF

  • Summary: About 2 year after buying this monitor it started flashing on and off...I reverted to old monitor and checked out forum post from people with similar problems. I did the recommended go to of changing drivers and since my video card wasn't this issue (I was using a different monitor with it just fine) it had to be the inverter that people where having to replace.

a clunker at 3 years old

  • Summary: This monitor came with my computer and just turned 3 years old this month. For about 6 weeks I have notice a sutble flickering, then occasionally, and more often recently, the screen goes black. I have to turn the monitor off, then on to get the picture back. The bottom line from the sages on the internet is that the power something or other is going and will soon be kaput; meaning I will have to buy another monitor.

Great for single input users

  • Summary: Very nice and crisp looking monitor for a great price; it's a shame they screwed up the monitor switching capability so royally. When switching from DVI to VGA or vice-versa, the monitor will display the new source for half a second then go blank. The only way to get the monitor to display the new source correctly is to go through the on-screen menus, set the new source as the default, and then turn it off and turn it back on about 10 times.

Not good at all

JM3, Amazon
30 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this monitor when I purchased a new HP system & it worked well for the 1st 18 months. Now the backlight is out & the screen will go blank. I turn it off and when I turn it back on, the screen works for about 5 secs. before it goes blank again. Don't get me wrong, the 1st 18 months were great but, not now. They(Best Buy) told me that I would have to pay them $35 to have them ship the monitor for repairs.Then who knows how much it would cost to repair it.

HAS KILLED 2 COMPUTERS...

19 November 2010
  • Summary: i don't know how but it has killed a new hp computer. it started with one port (the vga port), so we changed the attachment (comes with a cord to attach to the other port)....eventually, it died and the computer won't boot up on ANY MONITOR. i'm thinking that it fried the ports which are attached to the motherboard..... months passed and the monitor just sat in a closet, with the dead hp computer.... then i bought an off lease computer through amazon....

Not worth the risk

Mary J. Kesler, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: My HP1907, like so many others went to sleep one day and never woke up. 13 1/2 months after purchase. The HP support people were no help unless I paid them $99.00 to begin with. Their website is full of complaints of the same nature and HP will not even acknowledge the problem exists. And for most of the people with the same situation, the monitor lasted a little over a year, just out of the warranty period.

worth ZERO stars

Midroad "RoJ", Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: I have an HP desk top and purchased this so I would not have compatibility issues. The monitor keeps going to sleep and the HP help site is worthless. I have to manually change the resolution settings every time I turn my HP desktop on. To make it worse if my computer is not used for a while or I switch users I have to reset the resolution again. I use my computer for a living so this is not a toy for me it is my livelihood. I probably will never buy HP again.
