Has failed twice in 6 months

TD, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased one mid January 2014. Two months later it died in the middle of a project. HP sent a replacement. After just four months the replacement has died as well. I don't know what the problem is--it has been suggested that the power supply on these is at fault--but I am very disappointed. I have never spent so much money on a monitor only to have it fail repeatedly after very light use. Just heard back from HP.

  • Summary: This monitor weights a lot more than other monitors. The monitor I received was supposed to work, but it did not work with an HP laptop.

Cannot adjust height

Charles S., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: The first of these refurbs I got didn't work at all. When this one arrived, I was having some health problems, but was able to get it more or less set up satisfactorily, except for the 2-1/2" from desktop to bottom of the bezel. I've tried everything I can think of to get the thing to extend, short of hammer taps. This is uncomfortable to view on its current desk, and totally eliminates any use of portrait layout. Maybe that's next.
  • Pros: Good picture. Actually, closer to great.
  • Cons: Cannot raise screen

Great value

William S., Newegg

  • Pros: The extra screen real estate over a 1080 monitor is massive. Compared to other monitors in this class, getting 2560x1440 at 60Hz on an IPS display for this price is worth it. Sounds like this monitor might have some overall quality issues, so it may be a bit of a gamble, but it has worked out splendid for me so far after several months.
  • Cons: I wish it had HDMI. I wish it worked in tall mode (probably an OSX issue). I wish the bezel was thinner. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.

Color Issue!

Su L., Newegg
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Just like many other owners' complain. The screen has light yellow tint all over the bottom half, and it is overall yellowish except the upper left and right parts which look very white.
  • Pros: High resolution; Good stand.
  • Cons: Discoloration; No OSD; Heavy.

ZR2740w

Chris P., Newegg
31 May 2014
  • Summary: once I connected the included display port (full sized) cable, it went to the full resolution. Not really familiar with monitors of this size and resolution, but seems to give off more heat than my other monitor.
  • Pros: bright, works, reasonable cost for refurbished high res 27"
  • Cons: didn't work at full resolution with the DVI connection

Couldn't be happier

Michael R., Newegg
30 May 2014
  • Summary: This refurb shows up on either newegg or Woot.com every other week for the same $299 price. So if you miss you chance just wait it will return to this price or maybe even cheaper. Also spend $30-50 on a monitor arm that attaches to your desk, it is worth it to have this big screen just floating there on your desk rather than the included stand taking up space.
  • Pros: Honestly it's a Refurbished 27" 1440p monitor for at the time $299, you get what you pay for. And i'm very happy for what i got for the price. Coming from a 21.5" 1080p screen it was a kick to the face on how big and beautiful everything is. Using display port wasn't and issue because it was already my intention before hand.
  • Cons: Lack of an OSD menu kinda sucks, but i knew that going into the purchase from reviews online. You can do a lot of the adjustments via the GPU software installed with most drivers in your OS.

Mac Owners Stay Away

Aharon "aharon", Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this monitor for my Mac Pro 4,1 w/ NVIDIA GT120, Monitor worked fine for about 10 days, then it started blacking out every once in a while. Over time it got worse, after about 2 months it got so bad that I reported it to HP, they were very quick to respond and they even send someone to my house with a replacement.
