Summary: The monitor has a solid construction and seems to be of good quality. The stand height is adjusted with ease and feels sturdy. The image is sharp and fairly accurate to the naked eye. I've owned this monitor for a few months now and I've had 0 issues, no dead pixels. The monitor has minimal bleed, which is only noticed when it's pitch black, - having said that, I don't think it's possible to find a 24" monitor that has virtually 0 back light bleed.
Summary: If you need a large screen with portrait format, this is "it" among today's choices. Worthy color reproduction out of the box, with solid resolution and no dead pixels. We normally avoid HP because of their rotten customer service, but this was too good to pass up. That said, if you don't need swivel capability there are many choices, from HP and others, that are more or less as good for far less cost.
Summary: I had two HP LP2475w monitors, but one stopped working not too long ago. I scouted for new monitors for a while and eventually found this one. I was planning on getting a Dell ultrasharp, but I read a bunch of reviews saying they had issue. I am glad I went with this monitor. In compairison to the LP2475 this ZR2440 is lighter and thinner although the base is a bit taller and the rotation locks a lot better. The color calibration out of the box is almost perfect.
Summary: I like this monitor so much that I purchased three of them. Now my desk has four monitors. The fourth is the old DELL that I used to think was so great. It's lousy compared to the HP monitors. The only problem I have is that one monitor occasionally goes black for a few seconds. It is irritating but not enough to send it back.
Great quality picture at high resolution, high build quality.

Summary: The HP zr2440w has a 16:10 aspect ratio. Most computer monitors now have a 16:9 ratio. With 16:10 there is less scrolling. Also great resolution at 1920 x 1200 instead of 1920 x 1080. So you see more. And this monitor has excellent picture quality.
Seems to be all I need photo photo editing and print matching

Summary: I didn't want to spend more than the $303 i paid, but was having a lot of trouble with the prints from my epson r2000 being off compared to the editing screen in lightroom 4 or pse 11. Usually had to print them multiple times to get them right fiddling with mostly brightness/luminance . I had a samsung 27 inch lcd monitor from costco which did not go down low enough on the luminance.
Summary: This product arrived in only 3 days and was in perfect condition. Matched with a new custom built computer and could not be happier. Great for streaming movies in HD. Did not notice that it lacked HDMI cables in the box and only power cable supplied. No big deal but be aware that you will have to supply computer connection.
Summary: I just love ZR2440W and I firstly bought two for my office in October and then another two for my living room this time. The monitor has great color and brightness and good quality as well. --- However, for this batch, I noticed there is a "case number" on box. After I opened the box and found there is a dead pixel on the screen, I realized the vendor shipped me a real returned item to me, the case number appeared on the box might related to the returning case.
