Summary: The spinning foot on the bottom of the stand is annoying, so I glued it in place - never to spin again. I also added 4 - 2 inch round rubberized pads to the stand, as I didn't like the small felt pads it had - it would slide on table when bumped.
Pros: I know mine is an older monitor from Sept 2008 - But, It still works "Great" after all these years. The screen is still super sharp and crisp too, and the responsive time is awesome and quick. And I use it prominently for * Gaming * (I'm just a Guy!!), but I use it for video and music editing too.
Cons: No HDMI connector, but I purchased a BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adapter to fix that issue. And sometimes the "Volume" control menu pop up on the screen now - for no reason, and it adjusts itself on it's own and then disappears( I have never used the built-in speakers since I've o...
Summary: Great Monitor! Purchased when they first came out. It has been wonderful. Beautiful color, speakers, USB, vertical/horizontal positioning. It once needed a total power reset/disconnect but that may have my cheap cable. Once I lost audio. I thought it had died, it was the HDMI cable.
Summary: Hard to beat this monitor. If you want 'true' colors you will need to calibrate this monitor just like you will any other monitor. I hear people complaining that the color is 'off'. Yep, it will be until you color correct it with something like a Spyder color correcting tool and software.
Spec'd out better than Apple's own display, but needs some color calibration

Summary: HP makes good displays, especially considering the price. The colors were amazing, and it held up well for the professional video work I do. I did have to tinker with the color a bit, but it wasn't a big deal.
Summary: this monitor is great... but I noticed at least one was priced at nearly double to triple its real retail price when bought years ago. don't pay more than $200-$400 max for this.. this monitor came with a very pricey desktop.. and definatley was not $800+ even brand new.
Summary: I've had this monitor since it was introduced nearly 7 years ago and the price was 3x what it is now! Am very pleased with the performance, picture quality, styling, stand; well just everything!
Summary: Green Friendly Low Carbon Footprint Perfectly pleased with this gear, easy install, bright sharp clear imaging. HotKeys from my EEE at Native resolution, HOT Best of all, the Lowest power consumption of ALL monitors I polled.....
Summary: I love this monitor. Sure there all all the new fancy shamnsy led ones out now but so what. This monitor gets SO bright it's incredible. Cnet had said it's "nit" rating was double that of it's closest competitor. I usually have it at half unless i need it brighter in a game.
Summary: i own w2408h since 2008 bought it in costco for $600 have never had a problem with it. Started off with HP computer connected with VGA cable computer died. :( i was very upset in fact i spent $1500 on computer itself so than i got a Mac mini in mid 2009 for $500 never had a single problem with it...
Summary: Purchased this product in 2008. The screen now has a blue line down the middle of the screen. Off the the junk yard! HP is not the company now known for quality. Save your money --- stay away from HP.............
