Not for me

George Sumrall, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: The only reason this is getting a poor review is because I am a videographer and this monitor just didn't quite cut it for me. Got it on sale for only $300 however, do not buy this particular model if you are an editor where dealing with accurate and precise color across more than one display is a...

Good price on sale, but low quality

Daniel Martin, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought it when on sale because I was looking to upgrade my screen real estate. Functionally it did that, but not very impressed with the quality. Pro: 1440p, anti-glare coating helps with reflections while not impacting the image much, multiple angle adjustments, HP support was great getting me a...

Compatibility Nightmare

  • Summary: I'm a developer and the thought of a 27" 2560x1440 desktop for Visual Studio lured me to the dark side. I probably should have just gone with 2 1080P monitors. Oh, first the good. I have an HP EliteBook with docking station that has a DisplayPort.

Already needs to be replaced

Freyja, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I loved it.....when it worked. I've barely had this monitor a month, and it's already broken. I should have listened to the other reviewers, but I assumed (incorrectly) HP had the problem fixed by now. So, I am inserting myself into HP's customer service grinder, wish me luck.

Died after month

OkayAKay, Amazon
10 November 2012
  • Summary: Okay for coding, but I could see a crystallization (the picture isn't perfect) on the screen which isn't OK. Well, died after month of usage. As I read after in new reviews - the model dies very often. Cannot replace, bought abroad USA do not want to waste too much time on this. Big minus for HP.

Defective...

Sam Chao, Amazon
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Generally speaking, screen is bright and looked good (almost) out of the box. The anti-glare didn't bother me, because it's similar to my Macbook Air screen. The one I got was defective, and had a "dark fuzzy strip" that ran the width of the screen, about an inch from the bottom.

Some complaints at first and then dead after 1 month

dlib2000, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: Was excited to receive this monitor. Noticed right away that the colors were a little on the green side. After calibrating with a spyder elite, the colors were fine. I do computer graphics work and the anti-glare coating is way to heavy on this thing, for me at least.
