Pros: Big Picture. Good response time. Looked fantastic at factory setting and after a little calibration it will blow you away. I have a 7970 6gb Radeon that drives monitor with no issues at highest settings.
Cons: Puts out some heat. No OSD but I calibrated with Catalyst driver.
Other Thoughts: I use the monitor for general use, surfing, word processing, and spread sheets. My game of choice is EVE on line. Th graphics at 2560 x 1600 are stunning. I cannot notice any lag at the 7ms rated refresh rate. No ghosting that I can notice. One proble though. I use to run the game with three 1920 x 1080p monitors. Now my main monitor is the ZR30 at 2560x1600. I ma having promblems in that the client will not run at different resolutions. Looks great on new monitor but I cannot run two more instances of client on the other two monitors at their native resolution of 1920x1080p. There has to be a work around for this but I have not found it yet. Other than that I love the monitor though. I have been watching this monitor for about a year. BTW, it is being discontinued for a new model...it is no longer available on the HP website. There are probably few of these left in circulation and they will be gone. Mine had no problems. No dead pixels, no banding or bleed. Color calibration was pretty darn good right out of box. Get one while you can.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very Fast. Ugraded from a Vertex 2.
Cons: Lots of pain to set up. I have a Asus P8P67 Delux MB. You cannot do firmware update unless it is attached to the Intel 6gb SATA ports. Does not like the Marvel 6gb SATA ports for some reason. Then you can only use the OCZ toolbox to flash if you manually uninstall the Intel AHCI SATA driver and re-install the Windows default AHCI driver. This cuts speed in half. Then I had to flash it 3 times before it took the firmware update. Then you have to re-install the Intel SATA driver.....pain in the rear.
Other Thoughts: Once I got it flashed did clean install of Win 7 64bit and it flys. Have not benchmarked yet but I can clearly tell difference in boot and access times in the Vertex 4 and the Vertex 2. Frustrated getting firmware update but all and all very satisfied after all that. My biggest regret was not being able to afford the 512gb drive so I could have put all my programs on it.
Thanks to the Super Moderators on the OCZ user forums that put up with my griping and helped me figure out how to flash firmware.
And as usual...Newegg rocks. Paid three day shipping and got it in two days.
