Summary: OMG! This 30" monitor more than meet my needs. I have two 30", this HP ZR30w & the MONOPRICE IPS WQX. Both give me the space I need working AutoCAD, Rendering & some design. These two giants also give me plenty of real-estate for coding. The MONOPRICE unlike the HP will rotate presenting a legal document in its entirety. As far as response & picture production during gaming I can not ask for anything better unless I was to pay several thousand dollars.
Absolutely great monitor. Perhaps greatest that I have ever seen.

Summary: Stunning resolution. Massive size. This one will blow you away. Highly recommended for those who are in DSLR photography. Couple of things you must know before buying (although HP has clear disclosure). The graphic card must be capable of the resolution the monitor supports. In addition, if you are using DVI cable, this monitor requires DUAL LINK DVI cable. Regular single link DVI cable will not work.
Everything went well for me, had it over a year or 2. A+

Summary: It arrived well packaged, when installed all pixels were good for me, and this screen made me happy sitting in front of it, 2560x 1600x will make you feel like a millionaire! One of the best screens i ever had and money well spent, every penny.
Summary: Once you get the computer (and video card) that will drive this beast, the monitor itself is just great. It's reliable. It's huge. The image is rock stood and sharp. The connections work well, and, as a USB port, it works great. No hesitation to recommend this until they put out a 4k version.
Summary: I bought this monitor in 2010, mostly to do color-correct illustration work and to have a large working space. There are many in-depth reviews so I will quickly just post a few thoughts: -the monitor has a kind of 'sparkly' coating on the screen, as was kind of a fad a few years ago on laptop computer screens. This is to reduce glare, but close-up on bright solid whites or colors it make an image look kind of 'dirty'.
Summary: I've owned the little brother to this screen, the 24" HP LP2475w, for years with my home computer, and I liked it so much that it's the same monitor I chose to use at work for graphics work. So when I decided I wanted to upgrade to a 30" monitor, the HP ZR30w was the first monitor I added to my list of possibilities.
Summary: I hope I haven't jinxed this but after 18 months, my ZR30w is still working fine. My Samsung 305t is another story. It failed a week before the warranty expired and I just got in under the deadline and the fixed one has just failed again today and is no longer under warranty and I'll not be dropping any more money into that thing. I'm looking for a replacement for the 305t and may pick up another ZR30w but the Dell looks good too.
Summary: At the time of writing this (Jan 2013) It comes down to this monitor and Dell U3011 as the best options for a 30'' monitor. The HP is more expensive but wins out because of the processing lag [...
