Has failed twice in 6 months--uhm make that 3X

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.

  • 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.

Mac Owners Stay Away

  • 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

  • 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.

Failure In Less Than An Hour Of Recieving It.

RyanWC, 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.

Do not waste your time

David, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought two of these about a year ago. The first one died pretty early on and HP sent a new one to replace it. The second one died a few months later and I have been struggling to get HP to send me a replacement that works. After four defective remanufactured units they decided to send me a 30" upgrade. It is also defective. Now I'm waiting on another replacement.

Monitor died after 3 weeks of use

I-Chuan Chen, Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought a "Used - Like New" monitor from Amazon Warehouse. When I received the monitor, it looked like it had never been used and the reason it was returned was because the person decided they didn't want it anymore. It was great while I used it, but it shut down by itself one night and I was unable to get it to turn back on. Died in less than 3 weeks of use.

Great when they work..!

Jon Gillespie-Brown, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought 2 of these monitors, great spec and value for business use. Of the 2 one is great, no issues just works well in my 3 screen array. The 2nd had to be replaced due to some sort of electrical fault. Then the replacement one for that stopped working too, so now I am waiting around again for a 2nd replacement - very frustrating, tons of wasted time and mainly loss of productivity as my array isn't working for days on end!
