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.

User Review

Anthony H., Newegg

  • 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.

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!

Excellent Monitor

Adam F., Newegg
10 February 2013
  • Summary: Great monitor.. :)
  • Pros: PC gaming at this resolution is beautiful; the colors are great the display is solid with no pixel issues or back light bleed. If you are thinking about this monitor but, are holding back due to the lack of an OSD....don't. The picture looks amazing out of the box. The brightness adjustment is al...
  • Cons: People or (Kids) that don't appreciate a great piece of hardware. People that write erroneous reviews that do not own the product.

Eye Shattering

Daniel W., Newegg
2 February 2013
  • Pros: If your even contemplating the purchase of this fine piece of technology then I don't need to go into detail regarding the technical pro's over standard led wife screens. I wanted to write this review not because I wanted to boast about the product. I would like to think anyone considering such a...
  • Cons: using it paired with a desktop with an independent graphics card with the technical capabilities of out putting to a professional screen such as the HP ZR30w. Thanks

N/A

Bard F., Newegg
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I think I have figured out why the larger IPS panels are priced so high: the return rate for stuck/dead pixels is significant enought to drive up the price. I finally bought my unit (not from New Egg, but from another equally-trusted outfit).
  • Pros: It is a beautiful monitor--lots of real estate and beautiful color--easy to install and well packaged--it is Spartan in design, as are most truly professional products.
  • Cons: One dead pixel (sigh!). Some people may be put off by the anti-glare coating, but that did not bother me. OSD is not really needed, but it would have been nice if the brightness control had an onscreen indicator to let one know how high or low it is being set.
