4 out of 5 eggsSolid, but not IPS

Pros: -- Very solidly built.
-- Handle built in to base/stand.
-- Attractive
-- 1920x1200 Resolution
-- Easy to use menus
-- DisplayPort input

Cons: -- Not IPS (more in "Other Thoughts").
-- Expensive for not being IPS.
-- No HDMI input (that's a very tiny niggle).

Other Thoughts: This monitor worked fine with my Mac Mini via DisplayPort (cable purchased separately).

I knew it wasn't IPS, but figured that up against a 24-inch iMac from 2007 it would still look better. Not so. Example: the background of my Terminal screen is bright orange. On the iMac it looks bright and uniform from top to bottom. On the HP monitor, the orange is very dark/rich at the top and then fades to a yellow-orange at the bottom. The fade does not happen from right to left, and no matter how I adjusted the screen, color was not consistent from top to bottom.

I couldn't bring myself to have my new monitor look worse than the old, and when I found another 1920x1200 monitor with IPS (an ASUS model) that was actually cheaper than the HP, I decided to eat the restocking charge on the HP. I consider the fee a stupidity tax mixed with an in-home testing fee. *smile*

Bottom line: if you think a newer non-IPS monitor is going to beat out a nicer/IPS monitor (even one more than six years old), you might want to think again. The color changes from top to bottom in this monitor, along with the less-capable viewing angles overall) were enough to make me send back an otherwise sturdy, very-adjustable, bright monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Astoundingly well-built. Extremely sturdy. The height and rotation adjustments are easy and reliable. Buttons feel good (something that I think is undervalued in monitors) and the menu is easy to navigate.

Picture quality and color accuracy are both great.

The two USB ports on the left side of the monitor are very convenient and I use them often for peripherals.

Cons: Very expensive (the only reason I docked an egg). This monitor gets very close to the IPS-price territory but is only LED/LCD.

Other Thoughts: Consider saving money on a cheaper LED/LCD or going with an IPS monitor. Regardless, this is a great monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great picture and color definition. Excellent screen size. The 16:10 aspect ratio really allows for more viewing area over the 16:9 models (1920x1200 vs 1920x1080) And as long as you're using a video card that can handle the extra load, gaming is amazing on this monitor. All cables are included and the packaging and setup couldn't be any easier. You don't even have to assemble the base. Truly an amazing product by HP.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Note:
Some users may be a little impatient with the automatic source selection function, if so, just press the source button manually to find your input. But this is not a con by any means.

One more thing, if you enjoy a nice dark room while sleeping the LED indicator on the front can be turned off!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor for the business user

Pros: Great price
Great resolution 1200x1920
Color looks good out of the box
Stand very flexible for height and angle, and already attached to the monitor when I pull it out of the box.
Matches my old LA2405wg perfectly
No dead pixels that I can find

Cons: Can't really think of any

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a new monitor to sit side-by-side and match my old HP LA2405wg, and this is basically a newer version with exactly the same stand and trim, it's a twin. I'm just as pleased with this new one as my old one, and they look quite nice sitting side by side on my desk.
For the price, I don't think you can beat it for this higher resolution. We in the business world who look at words all day need all the crispness we can get in our display.
Oh, I know, there are those who will find something wrong with the color...I'm not interested in how precise the color is, from my amateur stance the color looks just fine to me.
Angle of view is not a big factor for me, I sit in front of it directly and I see it just fine.
I hope it lasts as well as it's twin.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't go wrong at this price!

Pros: It's got a 1920x1200 resolution and a matte screen! It's perfect for editing photos if that's what you're into.

The stand it comes with is fantastic as well. The adjustable base lets you contort it to any height and angle you want. The convenient carry handle on it lets you tote it around easily too (the base even fully folds up towards the monitor making it easier to carry around).

Comes with DVI to DVI, VGA to VGA, and DisplayPort to DisplayPort cables (and the power cable too).

Cons: NO HDMI CONNECTION! It's not a deal killer though since you can either buy an HDMI to DVI cable, or an HDMI to Displayport cable right here on Newegg if you need it.

It would have been great if HP would include a mini-displayport adapter or a mini-displayport to displayport cable with the monitor, but at this price it's hard to complain.

Other Thoughts: I am a photographer and I do my own photo editing. I have this monitor attached as a secondary output on a dual-monitor stand alongside my trusty Gateway high def 24" monitor. Being that my primary monitor has a glossy screen, the matte screen on the LA2405x makes comparing how images will look on the two screen types a breeze. Color wise they're nearly identical (the glossy screen on my Gateway monitor does make that screen a touch more contrasty and does punch up the saturation a tiny bit). Both screens are color calibrated and look virtually identical though side-by-side color wise, blues look a little weak compared to my Gateway monitor, but that's because colors have always looked punchy on the Gateway monitor.

The on-screen real estate from having a 1920x1200 resolution makes a difference if you're editing photos compared to 1920x1080 monitors. The price I paid for this monitor is almost 50% less than what I paid for my first 1920x1200 monitor too!

I can't tell you how gaming would be on this screen since I don't do any of that on this system.

3 out of 5 eggsGood resolution, poor horizontal angles

Pros: Good looking,excellent connectivity, extra USB ports, low energy consumption

Cons: Very poor horizontal view angle, probably less than 15. Tried to see static image with 2 other people and had to do it in turns.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!

Pros: Wow! I needed to match my MacBook Pro's 1920x1200 resolution at a decent price point. This monitor is fantastic right out of the box. No color adjusting necessary - matched the Mac perfectly. ...have not done video work yet... nice to have my spreadsheets crisp and clear. Very happy.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent for the price

Pros: 1920 x 1200 is the only way to go. I own several different ones, and this one is as good as the rest (Samsung, other HP, Gateway, Dell) and less expensive. Screen looks great, good color, good quality, and no dead pixels.

Cons: none, owned >1 year and still liking it.

Other Thoughts: my own needs are simple, just a good screen to look at. I can't speak for critics who need perfect color and so on, but this suits my business needs perfectly.

I'm buying 5 more of these for my office.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth It!

Pros: Excellent Contrast Ratio - The blacks are super black, and the lights are super light. It's a great image.

Price - It's the cheapest 1920x1200 as of writing this from NewEgg.

Stand - Flexible stand to position in any scenario!

Dead Pixels - NONE!

Features - IT HAS A USB HUB!

Image - I can't get over how beautiful the image is. I just love looking at the monitor lol.

Cons: I don't know... It's hard to say anything bad. I could say obvious things like "not a higher resolution" or "no speakers", but I'm not expecting those features in this price range.

Other Thoughts: I'm absolutely loving this monitor. It is replacing an older 22" CRT that did 1800x1440. While I'm losing some pixels in terms of resolution, the size of the screen is bigger, and the size and weight are obviously incredibly less. I've used these kind of monitors from HP at the office over the years, despite them being the lower-end models. I was happy with how they worked at the office (never had one fail - had a boss throw a ball and spill water and mess up the bottom of one, but after evaporation was working fine). This model is LED back-light, whereas the ones I use in the office are not. The size and resolution are much greater as well. This is the cheapest 1920x1200 monitor, but has more features than competing monitors that are slightly more expensive.
