A near perfect all around monitor for those who want more then 1080p, but don't want a 4k TN panel and can't afford 4k IPS

Summary: This monitor for 2560x1440 60hz is damn near perfect in my opinion. The colors on this monitor using the display port plug out of the box is borderline perfect, with color ranges that I have not seen on other IPS panels out of Korea.
Summary: I purchased this monitor on based on a Woot advertisement. It was a refurbished monitor, but I use to work for HP and purchased many refurbished desktops and laptops, but never a refurbished monitor. So glad I purchased this monitor!
Great Display, but not Compatible with MacBook Pros out-of-the-box

Summary: I didn't know if I should give this 2 stars or 4... the display looks amazing, but it took a long time for me to figure it out. I bought the HP ZR2740w monitor and assumed that the DVI cable would be able to power a resolution of 2560x1440.
A Very good "step up" monitor for those looking for something better than the Dell Ultra sharp.

Summary: Zeroed in on this make an model via some CNET reviews. Was looking for something better that the Dell Ultra sharps that I been using for 8+ years at work and at home. My primary goal was clarity of screen, no room reflection back, visual softness of screen surface (when not in use, same as no...
Summary: Its a major gamble to buy a monitor over the internet because if you get a bad one, the RMA process and customer support will be a nightmare no matter who the manufacturer is. But when you have something very specific in mind, in my case a 27" ips panel under or at $700, what other option is there?
Summary: A good monitor is one of the best investments you can make in your computer. This monitor looks great. Plus it has more ports than Apple's Thunderbolt display, so you'll be able to use it for many years with several generations of computers. I've had this monitor for over a year. A couple problems.
Great picture quality, bad compatibility, minor annoyances
27 July 2012
Summary: Before buying a monitor, I looked at all the 27" 2560x1440 pixel LCDs. I decided against the Apple Cinema Display because it is glossy. I initially decided against the HP ZR2740w (this monitor) because it has no HDMI input and Dell got better reviews from my schoolmates.
Summary: The picture quality and resolution upgrade from 1080p are well worth the price of this monitor, not to mention the very nice stand. However, this monitor is incompatible with many video cards.
Summary: I settled on this monitor after debating for a bit on a few different aspects, including the monitor size and manufacturer. After settling on the ZR2740w that was ordered from Amazon for me as an early Christmas present, I definitely came away happy and not disappointed, although there are...
Summary: if all you want is a matte 2560x1440 ips monitor for a very reasonable price, then this is it! i love the resolution, everything looks stunning and great for productivity. the only downside for my unit was the bottom right corner is noticeably brighter than the rest.
