After 3 years ownership

Andrej J. Bevec, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • 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'.

18 months and still going strong

E. Bennett "Shopsalot", Amazon
19 February 2013
  • 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.

Excellent monitor for the $$$

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This is Dreamcolor technology in a less expensive shell. Need I say more? The color values are crisp and clear. We create motion graphics for broadcast. This monitor was awesome out of the box. Ready to rock and we used it for our final color correction with very little tweaking. Anyone who needs a proper 30 bit monitor to QC their work will be very happy with one of these!

Excellent computer monitor, but slightly disappointed with media devices (lacks scaler)

JP, Amazon
14 July 2012
  • Summary: With a computer (using DVI or DP) this is an excellent monitor. Plug it in and you have as much desktop than with two 1080p monitors. However, I was slightly disappointed what I found that the monitor obviously has issues with media devices. Apparently it does not have a scaler and can only show few fixed resolutions.

Not a bad monitor

David M. Kean, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: I've had this monitor for a little over 4 months. I use it for gaming and it's extremely nice monitor apart from one annoying defect; it flickers. Well, not the whole screen, but just a portion of the screen - it's extremely hard to explain, so go to YouTube and watch the first hit for "HP ZR30W problem" (they don't allow links from here). I've called HP, and they are sending a replacement.

Excellent monitor

Liam, memoryexpress.com

  • 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).

Endlich einer, mit dem ich arbeiten kann

The Nightwalker, geizhals.de
16 March 2013
  • Summary: Nachdem bei mir der Dell UltraSharp U3011 und der Fujitsu P Line P27T-6 IPS durchgefallen sind (siehe jeweilige Bewertungen) habe ich nun endlich einen Monitor gefunden, mit dem ich zufrieden bin ohne dass ich das Geld für einen Eizo o.ä. hinlegen muss. Wen auch dieser HP für mich nicht frei von Kompromissen ist. Zuerst die Gründe, warum ich diesen Monitor behalte: - Die 2560er Auflösungen brauchen für mich mindestens 30", sonst wird mir das Bild zu klein.

Grand !

nitnerolF, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Acheté pour le travail, cet écran est grand, très grand ! Le rendu de couleurs par défaut est assez mauvais, mais une fois calibré c'est une merveille. A noter que comme la plupart des 30 pouces, cet écran présente des petites inhomogénéités de rétroéclairage sur l'ensemble de la surface, mais ça ne se remarque pas tant cet écran est... grand ! Autre remarque, la coque plastique fait un peu "cheap et "craque" à chaque manipulation.

Nachtrag zu meiner Bewertung

The Nightwalker, geizhals.de
30 August 2010
  • Summary: Ein gutes Jahr später bin ich inzwischen weniger zufrieden. An sonnigen Tagen hätte ich gerne mehr Leuchtstärke, nachts hätte ich gerne weniger. Wenn ich die Leuchtstärke reduziere beginnt außerdem recht bald ein Brummen. Nicht sehr laut, aber an meinem ruhigen Arbeitsplatz sehr nervig. Da lebe ich lieber mit dem bei Dunkelheit zu hellen Monitor. Rest meiner obigen Bewertung bleibt.
