Summary: Got two of these to set side-by-side, used mostly for professional graphics work, not gaming or movies. Very pleased with the color quality and brightness once calibrated (other than max darkness).
Pros: + Image quality and color are great (for professional graphics work)
Cons: - Black isn't really very black even at its darkest.
Summary: NewEgg, feel free to let me know when you have a friendlier LCD exchange policy. When I buy top-end hardware I expect it to be flawless, period, and exchanged with no questions if it's not.
Pros: This is the 4th monitor and 3rd IPS panel sitting on my desk at the moment. Short story, this is probably the best 24" IPS monitor for gaming on the market right now - low latency, low input lag, and great image reproduction. There's no ghosting with default settings (though there is some if you ...
Cons: I bought this from a competitor with a friendlier LCD return policy than NewEgg, and good thing - the first panel I received had some dead pixels which NewEgg probably would have balked at replacing under their draconian LCD defective-exchange policy, but the second panel I received is flawless.
Excellent color quality and off-axis viewing, unlike non-IPS panels

Summary: This is my primary screen in the office.. everyone there has a large and cheap panel these days but this one has a more vivid and colorful display. Pros: - Excellent visual quality, noticeable better than common TFT screens - Built-in USB hub for easier access to ports (no bending under the desk) -...
Summary: I like this monitor a lot. I also have a LP 2475W, and this monitor compares very well to the performance of the more expensive LP2475W. I do notice that sometimes, after the monitor has been running for a couple of hours, the screen starts to go blank for about 4 seconds every few minutes, and then...
Summary: When i purchased this monitor a week ago, it had 4 dead pixels on the bottom and another smudge on the right, which HP calls "contamination". I sent it back and got a new one having a flawless screen.
Summary: I have been looking at various IPS monitors for a while and the ZR24w looked like the best bang for your buck I could find. Pros: - viewing angles are fantastic - color is much more natural than my previous TN monitor - 1920 x 1200 resolution is perfect for photo and video editing - 16:10 aspect...
Summary: Like reviewer Big Fudge, I'm a programmer who wants real estate, 16:10, and sharp text. I haven't yet graduated to multi-monitor displays but was just looking for an upgrade replacement for my trusty old 4:3 19" Dell UltraSharp LCD (1905FP).
"good enough" monitor for people who care about viewing angle

Summary: I bought this monitor for my home, since I have HP LP2475w at my work and need the same resolution. 1920x1200 monitors are hard to find. I couldn't quite afford the LP2475w (more than $500), so I first tried the cheap alternative - ASUS VW266H from Fry's.
Good all-rounder monitor, great for average users, not just pros

Summary: If you don't want to read my long rambling, skip down to the pros and cons below. Also read my update below. I previously owned a 'Samsung 226BW' for 6 years (TN panel) and had the 'HP LP2475w' briefly (H-IPS panel, instead of e-IPS like this ZR24w).
Summary: Getting the right monitor is a balancing act. My own monitor is a 27 inch 2560x1440 which I love but know is not for everyone due to cost and Thunderbolt requirement. I also have a 27 inch 1920x1080 which is cheap but has a poor picture and horrible viewing angles.
