Summary: I didn't buy this at amazon but got it from some where else but wanted to sing praise about the HP w2408h anyways. Its a great monitor for the business that I'm in the resolution is awesome also the viewing angles are great.
Summary: Great value for the money, but I would look at competing products if you want this for a business/production environment. 1- Off-axis viewing is not very good. Even if you are right in the center, both color cast and brightness throughout the screen are uneven.
Summary: okay, those who do RAW images and are Photoshop snobs for perfect colors and hues, go spend some serious money (>$1K) on a professional, photo worthy monitor; those who want a great picture on a BIG screen for less than $500, then this one fits the bill.
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.
Summary: I like the monitor it works well. The one thing I do not like about it is the color of icons are real bright. I love the widescreen which size was the same as my old 19 inch standard monitor and the depth which is a lot less. I am running this on a Dual Screen system on XP professional.
Summary: Good Communication. Product sent as agreed. Missing some accessories, but upon request, they were sent overnight except for the manual which I was able to download an abbrevaiated version online.
Summary: Oh, I can't think of a bad thing to say about this monitor. In fact, after I bought one for my wife for a present (she was THRILLED) I bought another one for myself for my office. NOW, I can finally SEE what's on the screen, regardless of the resolution ...
Summary: Monitor arrived in good shape, with supplier foam packing, not the manufacturer packing. This type of packing is probably better than the manufacturer (and more expensive). This is the type where foam is injected into bags, which expands and fills the box. Delivery was prompt.
Summary: I had to replace my 10 year old 19 inch CRT which I have been relying on to give me accurate color for photo printing. Everything you've read about the incredible color and contrast is true and most people will love it.
