Rated 3 out of 5Â by Gil2013 Good Monitor for the price!
I purchased two of these monitors and I am fairly satisfied so far. There are a couple of things that I don't like about the monitor quality. First, the stand that is provided does not hold the monitor very steady. Second, HP only provides a VGA cable with the monitor, so to connect to the graphics card you need to have an adapter to convert the VGA to DVI. HP should provide a DVI cable instead of the VGA in my opinion. I didn't check which cable was provided when the order was placed or would probably not purchased the monitor at the sale price. As you need to purchase a DVI cable or adapter to connect the monitor so that added to the cost of using this monitor!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mikedmd2 Nice Monitor - Extra $20 reduction made me buy it
Nice monitor - Very bright, had to lower default brightness. Description on the website said VGA only, but it also has DVI. When they lowered in another $20 I had to get it. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by graphicartisan Very good monitor
If you are more familiar with large screen monitors, this review will seem somewhat infantile, since it's the first I've owned. I bought this with a new HP computer to replace my 10-year-old system. The difference is amazing, though of course one would expect there to have been great advances in technology over so long a time as a decade.
PROS: I am very impressed with the graphics capability, even though this is HP's low end model. I wish I could have afforded a step up or two, given that this one is so good! The better ones must be truly amazing. Performance is smooth and sharp. Hookup was fast and easy. It looks good, too, crisp and stylish. Delivery was right on time and hassle free.
CONS: The controls are a bit awkward, and the plastic stand is a bit tipsy, not to mention unresponsive when trying to tilt the screen. I'm afraid it will shatter if I apply any amount of pressure. It would be good for HP to enlarge the stand and re-engineer the tilt feature with better materials. The automatic contrast gets a little weird at times, and I haven't yet found a suitable setting, though that is probably because I'm a novice to such monitors.
I'll be back to provide updates over time, because I believe you as a customer should know if there are issues, or if such a unit is dependable over time. I've never owned HP equipment before, so intend to put it through its paces before I decide if I've found a suitable supplier for the future. Thus far, after less than a month, though, I'm impressed. Hope it stays that way!
