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. I'd say, your normal consumer would not have to do this, and if you are a pro, you know the color calibration drill.
Great Monitor. Superb aesthetic designed tilt - swivel - rotate stand/base!

Summary: This is a great monitor! I have several. The stand is unique well designed and highly functional in that it has great upward and downward mobility. the monitor is attached to the stand attaches using the industry standard 100 x 100 mm VESA format. The stand allows the monitor to rotate more than 180 degrees. Currently, I have two side-by-side and depending on the applications I'm using I can either extend the desktop across both or use them individually.
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.............
Summary: I needed another identical 24" monitor (hp w2408) to match my main monitor and I got a great one. I was running a decent 22" (hp w2207) as my second monitor but if they do not match as to size and quality it is a nuisance. This particular 24" monitor is an outstanding one they no longer make. Factory refubs we going for $500 to $800 retail which is ridiculous. The original new price about five years ago was $300 to $350.
Summary: This monitor was Great for the first year and 1/2, then it went bonkers. The first thing that went wrong is that a volume control box began popping up in the middle of the screen. Sometimes it stays there for hours. Sometimes it goes away in a few seconds or minutes. As if on cue it just popped up right now. It stays in the middle of the screen and I have to move my windows around and resize them just to see and use them.
Cons: I purchased this on July 21, 2009 and on January 26, 2010 it stopped working. HP insists the warranty expired on April 27, 2009, three months before I bought it. I have made 11 calls, sent proof of purchase 4 times. 30 days later they still say no
Summary: Great picture with many input and output options. I bought to upgade from an old monitor with only VGA input. It has speakers, camera, and HDMI cable capability. It is a bit difficult to tilt in some directions but it goes up and down and in and outward and tilts.
