Summary: The monitor originally works fine but starts sleeping after a year use under vista. I tried to reinstall OS, update driver, contact HP for solution but none of them worked. When booting, I needed to connect other monitor physically to show initial login windows screen, otherwise the screen does not respond at all. Once the desktop is loaded, unplug the other monitor cable and plug this 2207 in.

Pros: Beautiful display when it is working
Cons: I don't like that this monitor has a mind of it's own. Goes to sleep out of the blue. Then it won't wake up!!! Other annoying feature is the cable connection on the monitor is very difficult to access.
Summary: I bought this monitor specifically because I could rotate it 90 degrees to portrait mode. I am also using it as a secondary monitor attached to my laptop. Unfortunately the only way to do the portrait thing is by installing the absolutely horrible HP My Display software, which is the most buggy thing I've ever encountered...and that's even comparing it to Windows Vista!
Summary: At first, I was thrilled with this monitor (note that I have the w2207, not w2207H, so perhaps this problem is fixed). But after a couple of months, I started getting 'ghosting' - everything has a light ghost image of itself to the right - for example, characters look 'smeared' to the right-hand side. This is, by the way, on fixed text, not gaming or graphics intensive motion.
Summary: In summary, if you feel lucky, get the monitor. It has a good display and a reasonable price. But pray that you don't have to deal with HP customer service. (see follow up comments below- things didn't get better) I purchased a w2207 about two months ago. I was very happy with the monitor (aside from the not-even-ready-for-beta buggy "HP My Display" software), until I had a problem: My monitor display became "washed out" and, despite every remedy feasible (all...
Summary: - HP-Monitorsoftware My Display unbrauchbar und störend - Adapter vom DVI Kabel auf den HDMI Anschluss lag bei, war aber leider unbrauchbar da der Adapter zu breit ist und somit der Soundanschluss am Monitor nicht mehr zu nutzen war - Ausleuchtung und die Lichthöfe sind schlecht - Die Blickwinkelabhängigkeit ist schon extrem, wenn ich einen Meter vom Monitor weg sitze wirkt das Bild bei weißem Bild oben und an den Seiten gelblich - Benutzt man den Soundanschluss des...
Summary: Ser helt ok ut men den blöder något enormt. T.o.m. min flickvän som har en billig 22" Acer blöder mindre. Dessutom ger den ifrån sig något högfrekvent ljud. Verkar som en hel del har det problemet med den här skärmen.
