Spec'd out better than Apple's own display, but needs some color calibration

Jack Tailor "Jack Tailor", Amazon

  • 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. I'd say, your normal consumer would not have to do this, and if you are a pro, you know the color calibration drill.

What I expected

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 May 2009
  • 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. Monitor itself is fine. No damage that I've found. Works great. I am satisfied with this supplier.

Nice monitor, but a few shortcomings.

Michael Barnathan, Amazon
3 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased one of these monitors a couple of months ago. Note that this is a glossy display (one of only a handful left, it seems), with all of the pertinent advantages and disadvantages. I like the extra saturation that glossy displays provide. There are two panels used in this model: one is made by Samsung and other is made by LG (yes, the monitor is made by HP, but they buy the panel used inside of it from other companies). I have the LG panel.

Intense color creates small problems

Scott W. Larson, Amazon
7 March 2009
  • 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. The screen couldn't be sharper and works perfectly with Linux (I don't know anything about the software that came with it). There is a cost to this intense color however.

Great for business

  • 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. The only gripe that i have about it is that it doesn't have a DVI port like some of the newer or even the older lcd models do but i guess I'm gonna half to get the dvi to hdmi just another wire i gotta buy

Still a ways to go...

R. Skeirik, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: The w2408h WILL put a lot of pixels in front of you. Beyond that, I find most of its features leave something lacking. I came from an HP f2105 21" monitor and by comparison, the 21 is a far better computer component. This monitor has a number of nagging weakness noted by others here. THe colors are overbright and odd. The speakers sound like headphones turned up full blast. It has only one HDMI and one VGA input.

What a difference - But be careful unpacking

Miriam, Amazon
13 December 2008
  • Summary: I love this monitor, once you use bigger monitors you wonder how you got along on a cramped 19" monitor! :-) The colors are bright yet accurate, nice high native resolution mode. The portrait mode is cool but is basically a gimmick I won't use much. ***Important: I felt like an idiot unpacking this monitor because of their strange folded design and ambiguous icons in the instructions.

HP new style 24" LCD

Douglas W. Baty "Computer Support Specialist", Amazon
13 December 2008
  • Summary: This new style LCD is different in the following ways: (1) The screen support arm kneels up/down rather than telescoping. This allows the screen to go so low it touches your desk. Great for shorter people. The screen also tilts, pivots, and swivels to accomodate most everyone. However, this design does require extra space behind it for the 'elbow' if set low. (2) The screen surface is shiny rather than mat. This makes for bright saturated colors.

Great for the money, but

Keith F. Rosenfeld "Just Me", Amazon
12 December 2008
  • 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. 2- The mounting and pivot mechanics are marginal at best. You will have to tilt and finagle the monitor as you pivot if you don't want to bump the table/stand with the corner of the monitor.
