Summary: As others have written, I've had this monitor for 8 years and it rocks. It provides greater than sRGB colors in most parts of the spectrum, and has 1200 pixels vertically when working in landscape orientation.
Summary: The spinning foot on the bottom of the stand is annoying, so I glued it in place - never to spin again. I also added 4 - 2 inch round rubberized pads to the stand, as I didn't like the small felt pads it had - it would slide on table when bumped.
Pros: I know mine is an older monitor from Sept 2008 - But, It still works "Great" after all these years. The screen is still super sharp and crisp too, and the responsive time is awesome and quick. And I use it prominently for * Gaming * (I'm just a Guy!!), but I use it for video and music editing too.
Cons: No HDMI connector, but I purchased a BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adapter to fix that issue. And sometimes the "Volume" control menu pop up on the screen now - for no reason, and it adjusts itself on it's own and then disappears( I have never used the built-in speakers since I've o...
Summary: No complaints here. Only minor problem is that Windows Vista does not want to recognize the driver and asks me on each reboot if I want to install a driver for the new monitor. But the driver installed just fine from the HP website and I just skip the message on reboot. Nice monitor.
Summary: The monitor is absolutely giant! The amount of screen real estate you have is really obscene! Setup was plug n play, but you'll need the DVI to HDMI converter to plug into this monitor; it's pnly HDMI (Or wait, does it have a regular VGA? Not sure, but who uses that crap anymore?
Summary: I have minor vision problems, so I usually have to reduce the resolution on the displays I use so that objects and text appear larger. When I installed this monitor, it defaulted to its highest possible resolution (meaning objects and text appeared small).
Summary: I spent quite a bit of time researching which monitor I would be upgrading to. In the end, I decided I would go to a store and let my eyes do the deciding. While the HPw2408 might be slightly (and I mean, barely perceptible side by side) less crisp than the more expensive monitor, it's vividness and...
Summary: Excellent quality of image! for the price of the product this 24" inches flat screen is totally worth it, at first I thought this might be way too big after having a 17" laptop, but this isnt that big at all, I mean you can totally get used to it!
Summary: This monitor is wonderful! I looked at many 22" and 24" monitors both in stores and online. Having read the reviews on the HP w2408, and seeing it personally in the store, I decided to purchase it from Amazon. Two days later it was sitting on my desk.
