1 out of 5 eggsGarbage!

Pros: Gorgeous monitor, when it works. Sharp & crisp. It will be painful to go back to 1080p.

Cons: Dies. I'm on my fourth one. This one lasted several months. It has just died. It is surely out of warranty now, and I am the proud owner of a doorstop.

Other Thoughts: HP really missed the boat on this one. What happened to the quality? They used to make some of the highest quality test equipment in the industry. I should know, I used to work on it. Gold plated circuit boards....

5 out of 5 eggsGreat No Frills Monitor

Pros: Fantastic Resolution, great color clarity and response

Cons: This is the NO FRILLS model. You get ONE resolution, and everything is scaled to it. Most the time it looks pretty good. Text can be difficult to read at times due to the small size.

Other Thoughts: I enabled Clear Type text to help with the readability.
Download a color profile for the monitor online. While it wasn't perfect, it was really close. Unless you do photo/video work, it would be good enough :)

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None.

Cons: The first one I got never would start; this one had a stand that wouldn't adjust but otherwise seemed fine. Today (7/24/2014) it wouldn't work at all. I couldn't get any picture to try repairs. I installed my old Dell 24" and ran the repairs. MS couldn't find anything to fix and the Dell is working just fine with exactly the same set-up the HP had. I solidly regret ever coming in contact with HP. Their factory refurb set-up is low on quality control.

Other Thoughts: Ugh.

2 out of 5 eggsCannot adjust height

Pros: Good picture. Actually, closer to great.

Cons: Cannot raise screen

Other Thoughts: The first of these refurbs I got didn't work at all. When this one arrived, I was having some health problems, but was able to get it more or less set up satisfactorily, except for the 2-1/2" from desktop to bottom of the bezel. I've tried everything I can think of to get the thing to extend, short of hammer taps. This is uncomfortable to view on its current desk, and totally eliminates any use of portrait layout. Maybe that's next. If this is HP's idea of factory refurb, I'm staying away from all things HP.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: The extra screen real estate over a 1080 monitor is massive. Compared to other monitors in this class, getting 2560x1440 at 60Hz on an IPS display for this price is worth it. Sounds like this monitor might have some overall quality issues, so it may be a bit of a gamble, but it has worked out splendid for me so far after several months.

They skimped on software features, but only slightly on hardware. The only issue for me was no HDMI and partially functional DVI. When connected to my MBP with DVI, my only choice is 720p, and since I've heard others voice the same complaint, it clearly isn't a configuration issue.

When connected to the display port, everything is grand. The image is clear, bright and beautiful. I am a software developer, so color accuracy is a minimal concern. I was tempted to buy color calibration software, but I am glad I didn't. Don't need it.

The stand is solid and allows easy adjustment in all dimensions.

Cons: I wish it had HDMI. I wish it worked in tall mode (probably an OSX issue). I wish the bezel was thinner. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.

1 out of 5 eggsColor Issue!

Pros: High resolution; Good stand.

Cons: Discoloration; No OSD; Heavy.

Other Thoughts: Just like many other owners' complain. The screen has light yellow tint all over the bottom half, and it is overall yellowish except the upper left and right parts which look very white.

3 out of 5 eggsZR2740w

Pros: bright, works, reasonable cost for refurbished high res 27"

Cons: didn't work at full resolution with the DVI connection

Other Thoughts: once I connected the included display port (full sized) cable, it went to the full resolution. Not really familiar with monitors of this size and resolution, but seems to give off more heat than my other monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't be happier

Pros: Honestly it's a Refurbished 27" 1440p monitor for at the time $299, you get what you pay for. And i'm very happy for what i got for the price. Coming from a 21.5" 1080p screen it was a kick to the face on how big and beautiful everything is. Using display port wasn't and issue because it was already my intention before hand.

Cons: Lack of an OSD menu kinda sucks, but i knew that going into the purchase from reviews online. You can do a lot of the adjustments via the GPU software installed with most drivers in your OS.

Other Thoughts: This refurb shows up on either newegg or Woot.com every other week for the same $299 price. So if you miss you chance just wait it will return to this price or maybe even cheaper. Also spend $30-50 on a monitor arm that attaches to your desk, it is worth it to have this big screen just floating there on your desk rather than the included stand taking up space.

3 out of 5 eggsSharp till it broke

Pros: This monitor displays very sharp text. Colors pop nicely. Somebody else commented that the text was fuzzy with jaggies. This is IMHO the fault of the operating system. Here's how I fixed it in Windows 7: right click on the icon you use to run a program, choose "Properties". Inside Properties, choose the "Compatibility" tab. Inside the Compatibility tab click "Disable DPI scaling on high DPI settings". Then the program in question will display fine, crisp text. But it ( the program ) will vary in size if you move it to another monitor. Personally I don't much care if a program varies in size from monitor to monitor, but I *DO* care about crisp text.

Cons: broke after a month & a half. The raster faded out from right to left, with fine horizontal bars during the transition.

Other Thoughts: So yesterday I had to spend an hour on the phone navigating through options and then talking to people with foreign accents working from scripts. I was rewarded with a promise of a fast local delivery truck with a new monitor. And a new box. And a prepaid UPS label to send the old monitor back to HP.

That's why I bought this HP refurb instead of one of the Korean quad-def monitors, like a Catleap or Crossover. Hope the new one lasts. The warranty on the refurbs is only 90 days.
