Summary: This was by far the best monitor when it was released I go as far as saying it was ahead of it's time simply because we are in 2011 and my 2008 monitor hasn't aged compared to the competition specially at 1920x1200.
Summary: I purchased this monitor a while ago to replace a defective Acer monitor of similar specs. It was on sale at Circuit City (that should tell you how long ago it was, Circuit City hasn't been in business for a while). Anyway, it works but I can't say it's a very good display.
Summary: Purchased several HP monitors. One went bad while under warranty and spent over three hours trying to get a return authorization to have it repaired. Nice monitor until you need help. Then be prepared to spend a half day or more trying to get authorization to get it repaired.
Monitor is good while it works....but HP quality is going down

Summary: I had this product a little over a year (so basically it was out of warranty). One morning the screen just started showing everything with a pink shade. Called HP but they could not help other than advising to buy another one (Like I wanted to spend another $400+ on an HP monitor in just one year).

Summary: Pros : - Picture is bright, no dead pixels on mine - Pivot ability - Built-in USB hub Cons : - Colors are really inaccurate to many other monitors, though this is common to many others with TN panels in this price range - The monitor had problems going into sleep mode.
Summary: I purchased this monitor primarily to use in portrait mode; as it was one of the few that had a stand that supported rotation. Any monitor could be used in portrait obviously ... I'd thought about buying a wall mount or crafting some crazy system up on my desk. Anyway ...
Summary: Not sure if others have this issue, but 2 issues caused me to send this otherwise very good display back: - the fan inside the monitor developed an irritating drone - when the computer goes to sleep, instead of going to sleep this monitor alternated between bright white, magenta and green displays...
Summary: I like the size of the monitor. The high definition is adequate but can use some fine tunning. I do wish the monitor could be adjusted more vertically but fore the most part the price was very reasonable compared to others.
Summary: I purchased the HP w2408h Monitor more on a whim than out of necessity. While the video quality of the monitor is good (above average even), there are items that make it a less attractive monitor as compared to others of its kind on the market.
Summary: Watch out if you are connecting this 24" monitor with a new Windows Vista computer. IF YOUR New COMPUTER DOES NOT HAVE A VGA PORT, you are screwed. My new HP COMPUTER center does not have a VGA port -- required for basic settings on the Monitor. The monitor only comes with VGA & HDMI cables.
