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.
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.
Excerpt: For image processing - Lightroom & Photoshop. I have the predecessor to this model and like it a lot. The colors displayed closely match what the prints look like printed on Epson R1900. I bought a new computer and needed another monitor.
Excerpt: Use this monitor daily for creating oil paintings, mainly portraits and figurative work. The brightness and detail are far superior to the LCD monitor it replaced. Plus, the added benefit of swiveling it to portrait orientation from landscape is a fantastic feature that aids in my work. The base is also a big plus. It is easy to rotate, tilt and raise and lower. Wish for more: automatic software recognition of orientation shift that must be done manually.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: I replaced two mismatched Dells used with a graphics station. Not to say the Dells were not good in their day, but they were 4 years old. Like everyone else in the world I can't afford or justify spending "real" money on what's called a "professional" monitor. The two I received are pretty - No leaks - color match is great - no dead pixels - and easy to setup. Basically it was plug and play just had to pull down the brightness and gamma.
Excerpt: I am a semi-pro photographer, and I bought this monitor for managing, editing and printing my still photo image files. I use this monitor in my office, driven by a Sony laptop and i5. I have strong opinions about monitors for that purpose. The screen must be as large as possible to show great detail in the images but also small enough that the full image can be seen without swiveling my eyes back and forth.
Excerpt: This was my first IPS monitor and so far I have nothing but good things to say. Color was great right out of the box, though after calibration it really popped!! For the price I believe this monitor can't be beat. It has really helped getting the most out of my photographs. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the ports are hard to get at once the monitor is set up, but it is only a minor annoyance.
Excerpt: I am an amateur photographer and needed a monitor for my home built Windows 7 machine that would show color (blacks) accurately without straining my eyes. This monitor is not glossy and does the trick! Response time seems fantastic, though how much is the machine vs. the monitor is difficult for me to gauge. Except for a few extra minutes trying to figure out how to extend the stand, the monitor was a breeze to set up. I like the on board usb ports.
Pros: Adjustable Stand, Easy to install, Great Quality For Price
Excerpt: As a serious hobbyist, I wanted an affordable photo editing monitor for my newly constructed PC. The monitor calibrated easily, making print matching a non-issue. Lots of room to work in multiple windows at the same time.
Pros: Adjustable, Big Screen, Easy to Customize
Cons: Not For Gaming, Pixel Lag, Probably Not A Gaming Mon
