  • Summary: I felt I had to add to the "Not so great" category. Viewing angles really are that bad, "Halo" light around the edge of the monitor (This is after sending it back for yet another refurb).

  • Summary: I'm pretty ticked off about this, this morning. A small problem with the software for this monitor has, thanks to HP's incredibly poor customer service, turned into a $662 problem.

  • Summary: The My Display software apparently works only with Vista (I have XP Pro). This is contrary to what the documentation says but this is what HP support says. I have just spent a very frustrating 2 hours trying to get this resolved.

just OK

  • Summary: Couldn't get the pivot to work -- but even so, the viewing angle is so limited, using it in portrait mode would be impossible. I gave up after repeated attempts. Colors out of the box were very poor -- heavy green cast.

Flawed eye candy

  • 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.

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.

BIG Disappointment

  • Summary: Like most home HP computer products, this monitor is cheaply made, clarity is only good looking directly in front on the monitor and the glare is terrible. I'll stick with a better Dell LCD monitor instead.

  • Summary: Ho comprato questo monitor perche' ho un w2207, uguale ma a 22 pollici, e ne ero pienamente soddisfatto. Questo invece purtroppo ha diversi pixel neri fissi e la risoluzione dei caratteri a video lascia a desiderare, almeno in confronto al vecchio monitor.
