HP does it again with their LP3065 monitor. Its 30" of widescreen real estate runs at a 2560x1600 resolution. Three dual-link DVI-D connectors let you watch movies in full HD. The panel has a 300cd/m² brightness rating and a 1000:1 contrast ratio for a truly cinema-like experience. A handy button on the front of the monitor lets you switch between your computer, high-def DVD player and your cable or satellite box.

When it's time to get back to business, the monitor also functions as a four port USB hub with the downstream ports conveniently located on the side of the monitor. Positioning the monitor comfortably for all day use is important, that’s why the base has height, tilt and swivel adjustments.

The LP3065 supports desktop, wall, and swing arm mounting; the integrated power supply eliminates bulky "power bricks" and improves cable management, allowing you to minimize desktop clutter and mount the monitor flush with the wall.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 6.5 years

Pros: I bought this monitor 6 1/2 years ago at a price that is comparable to today's 30" 2560 IPS Wide Color Gamut class. I have moved this screen 3 times to different locations. The Backlight is still perfect, it still has 0 dead/stuck pixels and it is one of the best products I have ever owned. The color accuracy is still excellent.

Cons: This is a wildly minor point:

In standby, the device searches for an input signal from all 3 DVI-D inputs by switching between them using relays. They make a rather noticeable clicking sound that can get annoying if you're susceptible to this kind of thing (sort of like a ticking clock).

Other Thoughts: Of course newer screens have LED backlights and use less power, and have even better color gamuts, but side-by-side I am still amazed at how good it is even for today.

2 out of 5 eggsAfter 2 years

Pros: Big, bright, good price for a 30", calibrates well and reproduces colors fairly accurately for this price range (after calibration).

Cons: A line of malfunctioning pixels began to show after 1 year of ownership. It was faint and I did nothing about it. I am currently writing this at the two year mark and it is now a line of dead pixels that stretch across 2/3 of the screen. It is quite distracting and for all purposes this monitor is pretty much useless now.

Other Thoughts: Was a great display until this happened. Guess I just got a bad one.

5 out of 5 eggssmoke is a joke

Pros: see thoughts

Cons: see thoughts

Other Thoughts: im calling out the person smoke, dont listen to him, he doesnt know what he is talking about. the only reason you cant play ps3 or xbox on this monitor is because it doesnt have that connection, not because of the resolution. the dell monitors u2711 and u3011 are both high resolution like this and can play ps3 and xbox at 1080p. so like i said, smoke is a joke.

Pros: This is a nice monitor for for general computer use. I've had this monitor for a year and it's still working smoothly.

Cons: The one thing I'd warn everyone is that this Monitor's native resolution is too high for xbox/ps3, etc. So if you try to play a gaming system on this monitor expecting it to display at 1080, it won't happen. So if you want a monitor you can use for general computer use and console, you better choose another monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this monitor

Pros: Large size, high resolution. Easy to configure at 2560x1600 with Linux & NVidia.

Cons: No real cons. It is heavy and takes up a lot of space, of course. I am disappointed that the 2560x1600 monitors haven't dropped in price like the 1920x1200's did years ago (just months after I bought one :) )

This thing makes me feel claustrophobic when I work on my 24" monitor at the office.

It was also impossible to find one locally to try out before buying - I'm lucky that the dual-link DVI worked right out of the box.

Other Thoughts: My goal when buying was to have the most immersive system possible for World of Warcraft -- and I succeeded beyond all expectations. I don't play WoW any more, but this size of a screen is useful for my programming & IT work. I like this setup a lot more than having two 24", and it can easily show two full pages of a document with a legible font.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-up

Pros: Same as 10/22/2009

Cons: Same as 10/22/2009

Other Thoughts: My monitor purchased in Sept 2009 died a couple of weeks ago. It went 'streaky' and bloomed-out on the bottom half of the display.

I contacted HP for a replacement, and they sent somebody to my house to swap it out. It took exactly one week for the replacement, and I didn't have to pay any shipping charges.

Overall a very nice experience with their warranty service.

4 out of 5 eggsImpressive Monitor

Pros: Excellent sharpness and clarity.
Comes with high-quality DVI cables (2)
Finish is nice.
Stand easy to adjust, substantial base to support this large monitor.

Cons: I always want things to cost less, but I think you often get what you pay for and this is one of those instances.

Other Thoughts: You must use it with a Dual DVI capable Video card; the one I selected, EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR; worked perfectly, easy setup. 1MB on-board memory.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice monitor

Pros: As mentioned, this is a wide gamut monitor. This means without calibration, all the colors look like candyland colors and can really tick you off if you did not make plans for calibration. After calibrating with Color Eyes Pro and a Spyder 3 Express, the color is magnificent and pure bliss.

Cons: I got 1 grey/stuck pixel right smack dab in the middle of my screen. I use this for InDesign and spend a great deal of time with a white background so you can imagine my frustration. Newegg would not replace and told me to contact HP. Arg.

Other Thoughts: Using the Spyder3Express software gave so-so results, and the colors still looked candy like, so I bought Color Eyes Pro and man what a difference. Bummer that the Spyder3 was 80 bucks and Color Eyes is 175, but it's worth it if your a color accuracy freakazoid like me.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth Every Dollar

Pros: Once you use a 2560x1600 screen you'll never want to go back. Go down to your nearest apple store, try using one of the computers attached to the 30" cinema display and you'll see what I mean: you have enough room for a huge picture and all of the control pallets you could imagine in photoshop, illustrator, flash, premier, or whatever program you are working in. Two side by side word documents on 130% and you can see all of both pages.
But don't buy the apple cinema display, but the LP3065. Don't let the price difference deceive you: although the apple is $720 more, the HP has significantly better specs (92% of NTSC color gamut vs Apple's 76%, 1000:1 contrast ration vs apple's 700:1). The fact is that the apple is based on an older LCD (the same one as the Dell 3007WFP). The difference in color gamut means you see more colors. I recently bought a Dell G2410 as a monitor for another computer but going to the dell there was a visible difference in the vivid quality of the color.

Cons: An aluminum enclosure might have been nice, but the LP3065's enclosure really impressed me - very sturdy, very minimalist, you forget it's there and it even looks nice when it's not there. (Looks perfect with my HP Blackbird.)
No displayport - if you have a video card with only displayport out, it will be tricky getting this connected. Most video cards you buy now for over $50 will almost certainly have the Dual-Link DVI connector needed to run this LP3065.
*Dual-Link DVI is cause for confusion, so here is the scoop: The connector is the same as any other DVI connector, except there are twice the number of wires going through the cable, enabling the 2560x1600 picture to be displayed. You can also plug this into a computer that only supports single-link DVI, but you will only get 1280x800 resolution scaled across the whole screen. (Definitely not the full experience.) So make sure you video card supports Dual-Link DVI or "2560x1600 resolution over DVI" and use the included cabl

Other Thoughts: It's also the perfect TV for a good sized room - just grab a tv tuner for your pc and fire up media center. Plus you can watch Hulu on 30".
I am probably going to buy another to replace that dell I got for my secondary computer.
You will not regret it.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, except in Linux

Pros: Great resolution, bright, big.

Cons: Getting the color right in Linux is a real pain. The monitor itself seems to be calibrated for 6500K color, which is very very yellow. The CD comes with a ICM file which should correct for his problem, but there's no way to load the ICM file in linux (tried xcalib, won't take it.). What I pretty much had to do was mess around with the brightness/contrast/gamma for each color channel until it looked sorta right, but I still haven't quite gotten it... it'll take more tweaking.

Other Thoughts: If you have a Mac or Windows OS, then this is probably a great monitor, but in linux it's a lot of work.
