Dave D., Newegg

  • Summary: Absolutely gorgeous. Almost feel guilty.
  • Pros: Not just bigger screen, get much more on screen.
  • Cons: Expensive by today's standards, note that I paid the more for 19" CRTs back in the 90's.

  • Summary: If you're dropping this much cash on a monitor then you should probably get a simple calibrator to get the most out of the high color accuracy.
  • Pros: The best monitor available for PC gaming. The color quality of the IPS panel is at a level usually reserved for imaging professionals. IPS is usually known for lag, but this monitor has low lag suitable for gaming because it has no OSD. You instead have separate hardware buttons for input selecti...
  • Cons: Aggressive anti glare coating also means you get a bit of confetti effect in certain situations like looking into a bright sky in a game. Still worth it IMO but if you have doubts it's worth browsing montiors in person to see if you are more bothered by this effect, or by glare. You're going to h...

Unbelievable Beautiful Picture

Jeffery B., Newegg
30 September 2013
  • Summary: I use the monitor for general use, surfing, word processing, and spread sheets. My game of choice is EVE on line. Th graphics at 2560 x 1600 are stunning. I cannot notice any lag at the 7ms rated refresh rate. No ghosting that I can notice. One proble though.
  • Pros: Big Picture. Good response time. Looked fantastic at factory setting and after a little calibration it will blow you away. I have a 7970 6gb Radeon that drives monitor with no issues at highest settings.
  • Cons: Puts out some heat. No OSD but I calibrated with Catalyst driver.

You can fry an egg with it

Mike K., Newegg
26 September 2013
  • Pros: Great resolution. I love this resolution and size.
  • Cons: Eye strain and heat. Two people have used this monitor and found it caused eye strain. When using it my eyes started watering all day long even when away from the monitor. Stopped using it and no more watering. Repeated cycle once to be sure and now it sits in the corner. The monitor is hot with ...

awesome

CRAIG P., Newegg
22 July 2013
  • Summary: This monitor gives my dual gtx 680s something to do. I knew I was missing something when I was playing at 1920x1080. 2056x1600, wow!
  • Pros: Awesome monitor. Even though 4k is out now, I still consider myself in the modern era with this monitor. World of tanks is awesome with this monitor. Thanks HP! Hope a newer monitor comes out, cause I'm planning on getting two more.
  • Cons: Had to RMA the first one that came in. The second one worked greatly!

Amazing

Travis N., Newegg
6 July 2013
  • Pros: Incredible resolution and size. I should have gotten one of these a long time ago. I use it mainly for Max, Photoshop, After Effects, etc. but it works great with games as well. Can't see any lag or anything like that (that people are always worried about with these monitors). Just a great buy.
  • Cons: Price. It's pretty dang expensive considering that other (1920x1080) monitors have come down to such a low price.

Fine piece

Dan S., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Summary: Very good for Autocad or Solidworks users (LOTS OF SCREEN)
  • Pros: After all the reviews I read I was somewhat despondent to purchase but, I was either lucky or the Q.C. is much better. Very nice monitor, no damage, no bad pixels, used DVI-D cable very nice color, very happy! ( :
  • Cons: None, JUST MAKE A LITTLE MORE SPACE WHEN YOU REMOVE YOUR ORIGINAL MONITOR!

My update on ZR30w - after 2 years

Glenn C., Newegg
3 March 2013
  • Summary: In a recent upgrade of my office equipment (private engineering practice), I added a new HP ZR2740w monitor. Two things drove my decision: nearly the same size; substantially lower cost. The ZR2740w monitor is a lot of bang for the buck, as they say. A GREAT value.
  • Pros: High performance, high resolution, large format monitor.
  • Cons: Needs color calibration; considerably off, using factory setting. (I used Datacolor Spyder software) It makes quite a difference, in critical color work. Brightness seems lower, over time. It definitely gets brighter, and stabilizes brighter after about 10-15 minutes from turned on. Price is very...
