4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: I purchased the monitor thru another source but wanted to review it here.
Pros:
16x10 (1920x1200), bright, great colors, easy to use power button and adjustment buttons, nice on screen adjustments via OSD, various scaling options when displaying something in non-native resolution (great for older games), fully adjustable height/rotation/angle/tilt, matte finish front (no glare issues), nice black matte finish frame as well (not a fan of glossy monitors that glare or reflect), great refresh rate (no ghosting when playing games).

Cons: Viewing angle wasn't as great as I had hoped. This is a TN panel so it is expected to have this issue, especially with such a large screen size. It's not terrible, but there is some slight dimming for instance when I slouch a bit in my chair. To get rid of any dimming do to viewing angle it would require an IPS panel, and at this size would probably double the cost I paid for it.

Other Thoughts: Someone in a previous review complained about the stand being created by a 3rd grader, this is a gross exaggeration. Firstly it is not cheaply made. Secondly it does not take up the same room as a CRT. This panel was made to adjust height, angle, tilt so of course it will occupy more space then a monitor that only adjusts angle. So naturally it will take a bit more space, but that is because it is ADJUSTABLE. I will say it is a can be a bit bouncy so if your desk shakes a lot, you may find issue with it. When you do want to adjust it, it is easy to do so. Personally I wanted and adjustable height so I could fit my speakers under it. This monitor was perfect for that.
I purchased a double link DVI for 7 bucks from Newegg at the same time. No issues displaying the supported resolutions. I haven't bothered testing the single link.

1 out of 5 eggsway too big

Pros: Reasonable picture, non-glare screen, decent price, integrated USB hub.

Cons: The base is nearly as deep as a CRT! When you move the monitor down the pivot mechanism also brings it closer to you. The pivoting mechanism looks like it was designed by a third grader back in the 1980's and that may be insulting to third graders. This thing is awful unless you have a _really_ deep desk. The bezel is also a bit wider than its competitors.

Other Thoughts: Get a Dell UltraSharp 2407 (or newer). Better yet, get anything else. You'll be much happier.

2 out of 5 eggsVery uneven backlight

Pros: 16x10 ratio
Decent price

Cons: Very poor backlight consistency. Much darker at the top.

Other Thoughts: I'm used to high-end monitors and didn't expect perfection given the price. I'm still very disappointed in how much the background varies between the top and bottom of this monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGood size, Great resolution

Pros: using the correct cable (Dual-link DVI Connectors) not the single link (the one that comes in the box) this monitor will give you accurate colors after calibration, Contrast is pretty good compared with monitors with same price. I use this monitor for graphics so colors and contrast are priority for me.

Cons: Single link cable :( ..they should include the dual-link one ...if you are a gamer perhaps this is not a problem.

Other Thoughts: Haven't try the monitor on games, so I can't tell how response time will affect gaming experience

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor - (Open Box)

Pros: I am comparing with the very old monitors we have in our home office. Hitachi 19" CRT, Dell 17" LCD Model:E176FPc, ProView 17" CRT. This monitor blew them all away in terms of color, brightness, and clarity. This monitor makes the colors on my Dell 17" sitting next to it (dual monitor setup) grey and dingy. It never looked that way before. I just finished calibrating it using QuickGamma software. Just watched half of the movie Enchanted and loved the color rendering and depth. Photos have significantly more depth than my previous monitors.

Cons: The stand makes this hard to mount with a narrow desk since it will sit out 12" from the wall.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as an open box and saved $125. Mine came with all the cables and manual so I got lucky. I consider this a huge value

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic display. Buy this

Pros: Gorgeous display. The glossy screen somehow doesn't cause glare in my brightly lit office. Playing HD content on it through my PC Tuner card is unbelievable.

Best part is the base. It swivels, tilts and has height adjustment. Most other don't have height adjustment. With a display this big, you will find yourself adjusting it up and down as you sit up and slouch in your chair. I wouldn't buy anything that doesn't have height adjustment.

It also adjusts brightness to ambient lighting which is really nice.

Cons: A web cam would be cool, but that's not something I'd trade for the great stand and great picture.

Other Thoughts: Lots of discussion on 16:9 Vs 16:10.

Personally I prefer 16:10 because I use it more as a computer monitor than as a TV. When showing HD video, thre is a black bar (only 60 pixels) on the top and bottom but you won't notice them becasue they are the same glossy black as the bezel. You wouldn't know it if I hadn't just told you. The extra pixels for computer work are well worth it. I love this display!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Professional Monitor

Pros: Beautiful colors. No color shifting. No dead or stuck pixels. Dark consistent blacks. All the inputs you could want (and all the cables too!). Software calibration tools are great and should be good enough for most users. Worth spending the extra cash to get a non-TN panel. Monitor itself is very minimalistic looking with a thin bezel and awesome stand. Easy setup and am loving the portrait mode for scanned comic books and vertical shooters. Movies and TV show are a joy on this monitor too. Also, on a more serious note it's awesome for web design and work too :D

Cons: Input lag is not ideal for REALLY fast games. I measured it as about 25 ms on average. It's not even enough of an issue to take an egg off. I've only sorta noticed it when playing Quake Live (and after a few weeks I've adapted to the lag and the monitor and play just as well). Team Fortress 2 and the like are flawless experiences.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is worth the price. Sure you could save a couple hundred bucks and get a 24 inch TN panel but then you run the risk of color bleed, color shift, and dead pixel issues. I spent a couple hundred less on a TN panel and after having all three of those mentioned issues realized my mistake and upgraded to this monitor. If you're not willing to spend the money to get a real 24 incher don't do it.

4 out of 5 eggsHP's site says Dual Link needed over 1920x1080

Pros: Here's a short link (remove the spaces)
ht tp://is. gd/239RS

On HP's web site that pretty clearly indicates that for your viewing pleasure, you need to use a Dual Link cable for resolutions over 1920 x 1080.

Cons: Here's a long one (remove the white spaces again)

Other Thoughts: HP User said his worked fine. I guess he's running 1920x1080 because that's really the only way it'd look good.

4 out of 5 eggsDual Link not needed

Pros: 1920x1200 resolution supplies great real estate for your desktop.. Preferred this over getting two monitors side by side. All *necessary* cables included -- which means a single-link DVI cable and a D-Sub. I am not sure why the other two reviewers carried on about not getting a dual-link DVI cable with the monitor. It is NOT needed. Single-link provides 1920x1200 native resolution just fine. Additionally, I could find no reference on the HP website that the monitor would only provide 1920x1080 with a single-link cable. No wonder the HP representatives said this is the first time they heard of this issue.

Cons: Colors a bit off right out of the box, but thats to be expected.. Calibrate with a Spyder2 and it will look great.

4 out of 5 eggsditto

Pros: Neal has saved me most of the work. A nice big screen, decent viewing angles, no dead pixels.

Cons: The stand is deep, so the screen will end up at least a foot from the wall behind the desk.

It took me 45 minutes on the phone to persuade HP to send the dual-link cable, and the rep claimed nobody had ever raised this issue before... Still, they sent it overnight.
