Summary: The picture if flawed. It has a floating horizontal dark line. Overall, the product is defective. Although this is a refurbished product, I tend to expect that it functions to 100 percent effectively.
Summary: Please do not buy this monitor, if you want to use this monitor for more than one year because it will die after one year and the factory warranty lasts only a year. There are many monitors that come with 3 year warranty in the market, you are better off buying one of those monitors. My monitor doesn't get any power so I have to buy a new one as it is cheaper to buy one than fixing the existing one.
Summary: After all the positive reviews, I decided I couldn't go wrong with this monitor. Unfortunately I never got past trying to move the neck on the monitor so that I could slide it into the stand. It wouldn't move! The instructions were very clear but it was stuck solid. I tried forcing it until I felt it could break off. I looked for a button, or a switch - something to allow the neck to swing up. Nada!
"Great Monitor that is now DEAD and past warranty"

Pros: The exterior appearance is quite nice and the picture is quite good.
Cons: It is now GARBAGE. After 18 months of recreational home use the monitor DIED and HP said that since it is after their very short 1 year warranty, they will not repair or replace it. $349.99 dollars GONE.
Summary: After much research, I purchased this monitor. I made the mistake of not thoroughly researching the differences between types of LCD displays. The most color accurate displays are S-IPS followed by S-PVA. The worse are type TN, which will only ever give you just 6-bit color--262,144 colors. Various blending tricks are done to create the illusion that there are more colors, but fidelity is necessarily compromised. The HP w2007 is a TN monitor and it shows.
