"HP CUSTOMER SERVICE? YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING"

SHOCK77777, CNET
14 February 2010
  • Pros: The size, the brite screen
  • 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

Flawed eye candy

R. B. Basham, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first viewed this large screen monitor, I was totally amazed with the deep contrast and color saturation. The stars in my Hubble Orion nebula wallpaper sparkled almost like real stars. Nothing in real life creates the glowing colors and intense visual experience this monitor puts out. BUT, within about a minute of turning it on, as my amazement with the color saturation subsided, this monitor's serious problem with vertical viewing angle became apparent.

Not for Professional Photogs

  • Summary: Color shifting is a prob, even though I use a Huey color-calibration device my prints still do not print as they look on the screen (all my ICC profiles are downloaded, etc). It's just way off. I received it as a gift from my tech-guy hubby, so I'm thinking he probably didn't get reviews from a professional photos forum, etc.

  • Summary: hi, Im a 3d pro and depend 100% on the quality of the image on my display. I finish my 3d work doing extensive postwork in Photoshop and thought this monitor would be "the one" for me. After less than two months, Im using a 22'' viewsonic I borrowed from my dad, and selling my HP.
  • Pros: It looks great! It is really big and the vertical mode is enough to let your friends with their mouth open. It moves up and down really easy, and also has a pivot on the base to turn it softly
  • Cons: Flickering, lots of it, don't even bother getting angry, at 60Mhz it wont go. I coudnt adjust the colors in any mode, somehow they ended up being too contrasted or with too much gamma. Your graphics card should be able to support the vertical display, otherwise it wont work. It heats so much after 3 hours you feel your face like you were in front of a fire, without mentioning the red eyes. And the glossy screen gives you one BIG mirror! I spent like 2 weeks doing adju...

  • Summary: If you are worried about angles then this one is not for you. Yes the height is adjustable but if you want to be comfy sitting back low on your chair then you will most of the action at the top of the screen.
  • Pros: - Nice colors, vibrant. - Good for gaming with lesser input lag.
  • Cons: - HDMI sucks **** You keep seeing your reflection on the screen which also sucks **** Movie action scenes is horrible on this monitor
