5 out of 5 eggsgreat monitor

Pros: I really dislike HP products in general but they got really good designers in the monitor department. I have older HP LP2065, LP2465 and as I redesigned my workspace I got now one more - this ZR2440w.
Monitor has all I need to be included into pro grade setup - 3 possible inputs so I can switch between my 2 desktops and notebook dock, USB hub, colors are perfectly tunable so after some minor work in colorspider it is now perfectly in sync with other monitors. I set it to 94 cdm brightness and 6500 temperature after calibration and it is as good as it can be for both text and photo/video work.
ergonomics are awesome, stand is great, everything is convenient.

Cons: possible cons - they did not make a dedicated input switch button you have to cycle via list of inputs and then press other button to confirm. it is ok but differs from other older monitors. not a big deal.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent overall, some back-light bleed

Pros: Good color. About what you'd expect from a modern IPS display.
Very bright backlight. Turned it down to 40% otherwise websites with white backgrounds are like staring at the sun.
Very sharp.

Some reviews complain about the response (6ms GTG) causing motion blur, but I don't really see it.

Comes with Display Port, DVI, and USB cables (HDMI of course wants you to pay their toll and go to the store).
Do yourself a favor if you're using Display Port or plan on using it and go to to check their certified list for cables. I didn't try the one HP provided and instead used the Accell cable I already had since it's on the DP certified list. Not saying the HP one is bad, but better safe than sorry (google pin-20 issue for display port).
At any rate, DisplayPort is working just fine on this monitor with the Accell cable.

Stand is nice and sturdy.
Menu is very layed out very well, easy to navigate.
There are also some little things that are nice:
Stand pivots and tilts.
Has a carrying handle (very light too).
You can turn off the power LED if it's bothering you.
16:10 is better than 16:9 amiright?

Cons: There is some back-light bleed. Unfortunately this is becoming common with LED back-lit monitors. It's not super noticeable most of the time, but if you set an all black background you'll see it for sure.
Most of the time though I only notice it when Windows 7 is starting up (black loading screen). Even in movies with dark scenes, it's there if you look for it, but it doesn't stand out.

Other Thoughts: NO MORE VGA!
Not really a con anymore since VGA is going obselete, but there is no VGA port on this monitor. Just thought I'd mention that in case you were hoping to be able to plug in your ancient Dell Latitude D600 or something like that. I guess you could use an adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent monitors

Pros: Nice looking. USB ports, bright display (really bright!), no dead pixels, perfect color and temperature using default settings.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: I was using a Samsung Syncmaster 245bw, which is a great monitor, but when viewing it side by side with the HP ZR2440w I was stunned. The HP monitor is so vibrant with perfect color matching - no yellow or greenish tint to whites.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor!

Pros: Incredibly bright screen. Like eye-meltingly bright. Definitely don't need to have this baby turned up very high for brightness.

Nice simple bevel and the base is nice, holds onto your random things like pens and flash drives. The screen stays right where I position it.

The picture is nice and crisp, back-light doesn't bleed any worse than any other monitor does. Haven't noticed any ghosting while gaming, and of course it's the best type of monitor for true color. Can't really find any faults with it, it does what it's supposed to.

Cons: No VGA? I'm all for moving on to DVI/HDMI but some people still kinda need VGA for certain older products. Not the worst con, but still odd to forgo it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor - very happy

Pros: -Whites are white
-Colors are still good at lower brightness
-Lots of good OSD options (disable power light!)
-Audio pass-through for HDMI and DisplayPort connections
-1200 lines: those last 120 lines make a difference
-Just the right DPI for my setup

Cons: -A little bit of light bleed, IPS glow, or whatever around the edges on very dark screens
-Makes my 10-year-old Hyundai 19" look pale and anemic by comparison.
-No VGA D-Sub connector

Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic monitor. I purchased it in Feb 2014 to replace a second-hand Dell 19" business display that died. I have my PC (DVI) and PS3 (HDMI) both hooked up. It's great for regular PC use, photo editing, video games, and movies; with no ghosting, great colors, and just the right size for me.

I thought the lack of VGA wouldn't be a problem, until my wife wanted to use our laptop (with a carpy screen) for photo editing, and I realized I couldn't connect it as a secondary screen because the laptop didn't have any digital video connectors. I guess this monitor will just have to stay in the office hooked up to the PlayStation3. Too bad; no eggs off.

It works well in conjunction with my old 19" LCD as a dual-monitor setup in both WinXP and Linux Mint 13. The OSD settings are great, and allow you to set input priority and scaling modes; so for example the PS3 displays at the correct aspect ratio, with thin black bars on the top and bottom of the display (because the PS3 only goes up to 1080).

The dynamic contrast may work well for movies and games, but not for regular productivity - every time you open a spreadsheet, document, or file manager window with a white background, it goes to full brightness and OW MY RETINAS. This isn't really a con - you wouldn't use this feature for that purpose. I did recently play through the PC game Limbo on this screen in a dark room and it was amazing.

I haven't tested the audio pass-through yet.

I couldn't be happier with this monitor purchase - I hope it lasts a long time and only regret that I can't afford 2 more for a triple-head setup.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic product

Pros: This monitor has the best viewing angle of any monitor I have ever had including my TVs. The picture quality is also excellent. This monitor can be easily rotated and adjusted. I bought two and have them both side by side in portrait mode on my Windows 7 desktop machine.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was looking for an inexpensive 24 inch monitor that I could run in portrait mode that had 1920x1024 resolution. That way I can see many lines of source code when I'm coding. When I set this monitor up in portrait mode I noticed that it was about an inch wider than my current 24 inch monitors. That's because the resolution is 1920x1200. For me, this monitor is absolutely awesome. I wanted a wider screen in portrait mode but I didn't know that it was possible to buy a monitor with this resolution. I would have made this a requirement in my purchase had I known monitors like this existed. Dumb luck :-)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great 24" monitor. Crisp resolution up to 1920x1200. The base supports height adjustments, left to right swivel, and portrait/landscape swivel. The LED backlighting keeps this monitor running cool even when in use all day. I am very pleased with this monitor. A great value for the money.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased, Slightly Expensive

Pros: - good quality image
- 16x10 aspect ratio
- no noticeable lag/ghosting
- audio switching (with both analog and digital out)
- easy & convenient menus

Cons: - bad audio DAC
- only coax digital out (optical seems much more common)
- pass-thru cord organizer

Other Thoughts: I'm not a pro by any means so I can't give great detail about the image quality, although even with the high (albeit uninformed) expectations I had buying a pro-ish product, I was still blown away when I first turned it on.

I use it primarily as a desktop pc monitor, and also for playing my XB1, using the monitor to switch both audio and video between the two. This made the audio out from displayport/hdmi functionality key to my buying decision. This works well, only the sound quality is quite bad. I've only used the analog out to this point, I plan to try the digital out, and I expect that will be better, as I suspect they used a cheap DAC, which won't be needed when passing through digital audio.

The only other issue with using the audio out, is the audio turns off when you turn the monitor off, or when it goes to sleep when your PC is idle. Meaning you can't play music on your PC and turn off the monitor to save power/darken the room.

As I'm using it for both PC and Console gaming, I was concerned about lag/ghosting. I haven't done any detailed analysis or put my face up to the screen to look for it or anything, but during normal Titanfall play I didn't notice anything of the sort, so if there is ghosting/lag, it's certainly not going to handicap you.

My last thought is pretty picky, but I bought I'd mention it in case it's helpful to anyone else. I use the PC at my desk, and to play XB1 I turn it around 180 degrees to sit on the couch. Because the cord organizer has you pass the cords through the middle of the stand, when it turn it around, it really makes a mess of the cords. I Would have preferred something on the back of, or either side of the pedestal, as my previous monitor had.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent workstation display

Pros: clean display. Very good resolution. Easy standard access to controls. No funny business. Plug and play. No long term issues, screens are bright. This has become our standard buy.

Cons: No problems whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: We have bought 6 of these over the past year for engineering. All HP Z series workstations. The screens are great with Solidworks, Altium, PADs. No issues.
