The HP ZR2240w 21.5” LED Backlit IPS Monitor has a new LED backlight, HDMI input and 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution in an ultra-modern design that’s sleeker than ever to perfectly complement HP Z Workstations.
Awesome but Bad Power Cable
Pros: Stand came separate but was very easy to slide into place in the monitor and then adjust the hight/tilt/rotation. The menu is very intuitive and gives you a good amount of control over the display quality. I purchased this specific monitor because my eyes feel like they're bombarded with information if I look at a bright screen with high contrast, so being able to tone everything down to a much more mellow setting is great. Surprisingly, there was an HDMI cable in the package(!).
Cons: The power cable that came with the monitor was of a very cheap quality and did not have good contact with the actual electrical connection on the monitor side. Every time I touched the monitor, it turned off and the cable had to be wriggled to turn it back on. I had the previous monitor's power cable, so it's not a huge deal, but I knocked off an egg for it because having to buy a power cable if you don't have a spare sucks.
Other Thoughts: I don't exactly do a lot of high fps gaming, so I don't know how it performs with those. Works ok with GuildWars II, which is good enough for me.

nice ips panel
Pros: IPS panel (nice viewing angle)
Cons: too heavy at close to 13lb. current iMac 21.5" weighs the same or slighly less. imac contains monitor plus the entire computer plus it has glass + aluminum. i would pay about $100 more if this monitor weighs about 6lb.

Good Low-Cost IPS Display
Pros: +color representation is very good, but not perfect.
Cons: -slight color discoloration off-axis from left or right in landscape orientation (apparent but not terribly noticeable in portait orientation).
Other Thoughts: *this is the first week review. I'll probably write a follow-up after three or four months to report on durability.
