Pros: This was the pick of my short list in this price range.
Cons: As little as I use the menu buttons, I'd thought they wouldn't have failed. Note to all monitor manufacturers: I'd like to see all button functions to be programmable from the drivers as a backup to the physical buttons. I'm not able to find replacement parts for the button panel even though it a...
Summary: All in all, it's a nice upgrade from the 17" 4:3 ratio CRT I had before, but I would like something I don't have to clean almost daily.
Pros: HD Great for gaming/movies Colors are amazing I've had it for about 1.5 years, and it has never let me down.
Cons: Glossy screen that shows even the slightest smudge. Pixels stick with great regularity, all I have to do is tap them, and it's fixed, but is is annoying. Poor viewing angle, I have to have the monitor on my desk top, instead of on the monitor stand where I would like it.
Summary: Switched video cards, tried the monitor on a different computer (even tried it without a computer, line's always there.) It's definitely the display.
Pros: Hands down the best looking picture I've ever seen on a monitor HDMI input Huge
Cons: 1-year warranty, which wouldn't be so bad except that about a month after the warranty was up, I suddenly got a thin bright-red vertical line spanning the height of the monitor, about 6" from the right side of the panel.
Summary: They are shipping me a new monitor, thankfully, because I was just barely still in the warranty. Two suggestions: Buy the extended warranty. After reading online it seems ALL HP monitors are dang near expected to fail close to or right after the basic warranty ends. Also, keep your receipt.
Pros: Great picture and color quality. Very nice size. Extensive options menu.
Cons: After about 7months after I bought this monitor I had a green vertical line appear on the right hand side. This ran all the way from the top to the bottom of the screen. As I'm sitting here writing this I now have 7 vertical lines in varying colors all on the right hand side. All dead pixels. I d...
Pros: Quick response time, very crisp, great contrast. Didn't particularly care about the built-in speakers (in fact, since I stopped using them eight months ago, I forgot they existed). I would reiterate as other posters have, if you're upset this doesn't have HDMI support, then I would kindly suggest...
Summary: To the previous comment, its not HP, its all of the manufacturer's. Not all computers support the HDMI format, therefore, that is why the VGA cords are a standard cord to be sent. This has NOTHING to do with HP and should not affect the decision making of anyone to get this monitor.
Pros: Awesome monitor! Great graphics and have not a problem with it yet. Looking at getting a couple more monitors.
