Not for Professional Photogs

PhunkyPhotog, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • 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

Paul D. Schweitzer, Amazon
25 April 2008
  • 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: 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.

Software causes issues with Office 2007 and there are driver issues

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • 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.

Flawed eye candy

R. B. Basham, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • 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.

just OK

allears, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • 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.

Take your chances....

Nick Sterwald, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • 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).

If you DON'T play games

Gregory G., Newegg
31 January 2008
  • Summary: This monitor is only useful for gamers and according to HP support to use it properly you MUST have an HP computer. I don't, so the software "HP My display" will not run. The color menu on the monitor is disabled, so without software guess what?..
  • Pros: Games, good blacks (crumy whites)
  • Cons: Poor or inoperative software, terrible support, color controls and pivot are only software enabled

User Review

superzat, Ciao
22 February 2008
  • 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.

prima klima, Amazon

  • Summary: gut: - standfuss und rotationsmöglichkeit - viel bild für relativ wenig geld - design schlecht: - die bildfläche wird nicht gleichmässig ausgeleuchtet. besonders an den rändern wird das bild dunkler, - egal von welchem blickwinkel: es kommt zu farbverläufen über die gesamte bildfläche.
