The one really annoying thing on this monitor is that the image overscans ...

L. Tomasson, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: I own and use this monitor as my primary monitor. The one really annoying thing on this monitor is that the image overscans and you cannot read text that is around the edges. Sometimes it is hard to close a window because the X box is not entirerly on the screen. I am using the DVI input at 2560x1440. I have never had a problem like this before on a digital monitor.

Just some NOTES for future owners

genterist, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: I owned the monitor for more than a year, been a system analyst for years and here is my honest advice. - The maximum potential of the monitor can only be reached if you have a powerful enough video card for it and use display port. You may have to adjust color profile. - Monitor fried after a certain amount of time ?! I did have this and HP just mailed me a new one. The process is painless. Since the monitor has built in USB ports, don't abuse it.

Great, but died slowly over 5 months,

R. Stevenson, Amazon
15 June 2012
  • Summary: I love the monitor - it's fantastic in every way, easy on the eyes, easy to read, great pixel density, great anti-glare, etc. When I first bought the monitor, I noticed that ever hour or 2, the monitor would switch off for about 2 seconds, then come back. I blamed it on the display port adapter. 5 months later, the monitor has died completely, and won't turn on.

OK Monitor

J. Sible, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: I can't be sure, but I'm fairly confident this is really an HP branded Samsung monitor. It has the Samsung monitor base. Looks like a Samsung. Has no style. It's an Industrial run-of-the-mill monitor. It's large. Video quality is good. Not exceptional. It has an USB hub built-in making Desktop USB ports accessible. We have it matched up to a 27" iMac and although not as nice looking as the iMac, it performs it's job in the dual screen setup.

Dead after 5 weeks

.net guy, Amazon
4 April 2012
  • Summary: Well, 5 days after the e-tailer's return policy expires - in the middle of a complex re-factoring project - this monitor just up and dies. Half second of weirdness, then complete power loss. Will have to deal directly w/HP on the replacement. Before that, coding was a virtual dream... but for a couple things that may sound familiar. 1) Out of the box, the color temperature was rather green, not just a little, but noticeably green. Correctable, though.

Mac Users Don't Forget Mini-DisplayPort to Displayport Cord

RC, Amazon
6 March 2012
  • Summary: The excitement of opening this glorious piece of equipment quickly dissipated after connecting it to my MacBook Pro and only being able to set the max resolution to 600x400 or barely more than my cellphone on a gigantic screen. Apparently this is a common issue. Dual-link DVI won't cut it, you need a mini-display port to display port cord. Not expensive, but save yourself some time and order it at the same time as the monitor. For discussion of the issue see: [...

Sweet monitor minus the anti-glare

A. Sell, Amazon
13 January 2012
  • Summary: This monitor has almost everything going for it. It turns on quickly, doesn't need to warm up, holds a spot on color profile (once calibrated I got slightly better than sRGB gamut), has a very fine brightness control, looks great when viewed at all angles, is simple (I don't like OSDs), and has an unobtrusive bezel. The monitor arrived with only one stuck red pixel (which due to the small pixel pitch, can't be seen unless your a only couple inches away).

Buona qualità e ottimo schermo antiriflesso

Francesco Pireddu, amazon.it
11 July 2013
  • Summary: Il prodotto è facile da montare e ha un ottimo schermo antiriflesso che non affatica gli occhi. Va bene per la fotografia non professionistica ma non va bene per chi come me fa videoproduzioni in quanto non supporta il full Hd come risoluzione.

Design-Dino mit gutem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Nijhao "ma ma hu hu", Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Für den Preis von 495 EUR ein beachtliches Gerät mit sehr guter Bildschärfe (Win7/64bit, nvidia GTX580 mit Dual-link-DVI-Kabel, das mitgeliefert wurde). Die Bautiefe des Schirms ist mit rd. 5 cm eher noch so, wie vor einigen Jahren, ebenso wie der breite umlaufende Rand. Das Bild selbst ist für "normale" Anwenungen (Internet, Office) sehr gut, durch die hohe Auflösung erscheint auch bei einem 27" Panel jedes icon glatt und fast plastisch, kein Buchstabe zackt - perfekt!
