Has failed twice in 6 months

TD, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • 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.

There are better monitors

ConsumerAdvocate, Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

unreliable

BG, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: What use is a fast computer if the monitor Breaks... NONE. I have had to replace this monitor 3 times in 5 months... I keep getting one piece of junk after another. I don't even think HP is bothering to check out their refurbs before sending them out as replacements. They are busy screwing over their customer base by requiring a support contract for stuff like drivers, and Firmware.. Stuff that ALL the other major vendors supply for free to everyone.

The joke's on you.

R. Flanagan, Amazon

  • Summary: See the reviews "dead out of the box?" I'll tell you where "dead out of the box" goes - to Woot! Recycling dead inventory is sad and pathetic. I appreciate good products and services (check my reviews), and I overlook a certain amount of sloppiness, but recycling this crap will make me far more vigilant with Amazon. As for Woot!, every bad review has a bad product behind it, and every bad product needs a new home. Don't make the mistake of bringing it to your home.

Failure In Less Than An Hour Of Recieving It.

Ryan Cordin, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: This monitor seemed like a great deal until the screen began to flicker on and off after an hour of using it. The monitor I got was a warranty replacement for another monitor that failed. It's not at all surprising that the warranty replacement for another monitor also needs a warranty replacement given the fact that it seems hp is just recycling the defective monitors with other defective monitors.

Toast in one hour.

Nathan Risto, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Got one of these for work just today. After one hour of use, the screen flashed green and the monitor was toast. Tried multiple times connecting the monitor to other machines, using different cables, cycling the power switch, the power supply switch, everything I could think of. The computer see the monitor, but nothing displays on it.

Failed right out of the Box

Spock, Amazon
3 February 2013
  • Summary: The port for hi-res input was defective right out of the box. Without this port accepting input, all the monitor could do was take what was on my laptop screen and make it much bigger but with no more resolution. The pixilation and blur made for a totally unacceptable picture. Returning it and getting a refund (from Merchant "Portable Guy") has been a nightmare.

Nice, but poor quality monitor with extremely bad service.

kyods, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: The monitor died after seven months of use, it kept losing picture after 20-30 minutes and had to be switched off and on numerous times to bring the picture back for the next cycle, each time shorter, probably a problem with either PSU or bad quality capacitors. According to the 3-3-3 warranty, the monitor should be repaired or fixed on the next business day. So far I have received three replacements, each of them dead on arrival.
