Summary: Amazing colors, resolution and overall quality. One of the very top and best monitors ever produced to date.
Pros: ZR30W is everything it claims to be. The real estate area huge and the resolution is to-date unbeatable. My unit had zero dead pixels or similar issues. The screen is very bright and color-rich. No gradient coloring that plagues cheaper IPS panels as ZR30W features true 30-bit pixels that yield over a billion colors., The colors are very rich and slightly over-saturated right out of the box. However after installing the ICC color profile it was noticeably better. Stil...
Cons: Of the disadvantages, this monitor is power hungry and does dissipate quite a bit of heat. The large size increases the minimum sitting proximity, so a small desk will strain one's neck and eyes.
HP ZR30W; fantastic monitor at an unbelievable price
13 April 2012
Excerpt: The color reproduction of this monitor is fantastic at stock, and it can be further improved by professional calibration though that is not needed if this monitor is no used for professional work. Color tracking is unbelievably good. The monitor can display 1.07 billion colors since it is a 10bit monitor.
Excerpt: The inputs might be lacking compared to other models (ie. Dell U3011) but the picture quality (resolution, color accuracy, brightness, constrast. response lag) are unbeatable at this price range. Detailed Review: It is a truly excellent monitor, that comes at a great price relatively...
Summary: I could care less about having a hdmi connector - its not like I would hook up a Xbox etc to this monitor anyway. Primarily use - pc gaming, currently using 2 gtx 570 (sli) and absolutely no issues with backlouts or anything else. Best monitor I've owned, was using 24 inch 120hz monitor before buying this. I would rather deal with memory express than deal with dells horrid customer service.
Pros: Low input lag - great for gaming
2560x1600 resolution - everything looks good
Summary: One of the least expensive 30" IPS monitors on the market. Great low latency input lag means better gaming experience. Amazing colour palate and brightness. Pretty sure it is capable of 10-bit colour. Would give 5 stars if not for the little mini-blackouts from time to time while on Win7 desktop; again, could be my video card drivers. Make sure you have a good video card(s).
Pros: -Bright, excellent colour representation, low input lag time by about half the Dell 30". No issues gaming, other than needing a good video card(s) to get your 60+ fps.
-DVI-D and Display Port inputs.
-Height adjustable base.
-2560x1600 resolution means heaps of 'real estate'.
Cons: No HDMI input.
Not sure if it's my drivers or what, but I will get 1ms little blackouts while on Win7 desktop. Never noticed it while gaming, so I suspect it is my drivers, but Google suggests others have had this issue too. Again, never seen it when gaming (or 3D Studio Max for that matter).
