|Product Alert: IPS (In-Plane-Switching) is a technology for LCD displays that offers users wider viewing angles and bolder colors by allowing more light to pass through the panel. As a result, IPS panels can exhibit a slight glow around the edges and corners (also known as light bleed), which is entirely normal.

I previously owned a 'Samsung 226BW' for 6 years (TN panel) and had the 'HP LP2475w' briefly (H-IPS panel, instead of e-IPS like this ZR24w). My problem with the LP2475w was it's wide gamut and I wanted consistent color saturation across the entire desktop. I wanted a good looking monitor for multiple purpose, for work and entertainment. This ZR24w meets my need, it only come with a few small imperfections, but they are not bad enough so I would still recommend it.
General impressions, the good stuff:
-The monitor has a very sturdy stand. After turning the brightness down to zero (which is still bright enough), it output around 37watt which is acceptable. The monitor is very bright, but CCFL backlights are known to slowly dim as it gets more hours, so this is a good thing for the long run.
-The colors are simply stunning, combined with great contrast this monitor have very good clarity. When viewing photos and videos, the details and objects stands out, unlike most TN panels which look washed out by comparison. Watching HD videos should be a joy.
-The text is really smooth and sharp at the same time, one of the highlight of this monitor. Good for people who spend lots of time reading online. Small pixel pitch (.270mm) so you won't notice dots unless you move your eyes up close to the screen. There is a feature to adjust sharpness, but only 5 steps, which isn't enough IMO.
-The monitor is standard color gamut (not wide), so colors are not over saturated and are consistent across the whole screen. This is important as it makes the monitor more attractive to average users who don't want to mess with color profiles.Read more ›
I use the Dell U2410 at work which is 12 bit and about $150 more than this monitor and I really can't tell any improvement. I'm not a power user but I do some entry level graphics design but this monitor is an 8 bit that shows 16.7M displayable colors, the U2410 is a 12 bit and can display 1 billion+ colors but the human eye can only distinguish about a million. Plus most video cards only process around 16.7 million colors. So someone please explain what's the big deal about 12bit? Also we have 8 of the U2410s at work and 2 have to be returned due to dimming in the bottom corners, not good odds Dell! About the only thing I like better on the Dell is the touch sensitive controls but usually you only adjust these when you first set it up.
The picture on this monitor is stunning, I replaced an old SyncMaster 204B LCD with this one - me and my wife must have sat through our complete photo folder (she was beside me and she could still see the photos no problem at an angle thanks to IPS), it was like we've never seen some of our digital photos before! That together with IPS quality at $400 this is a great deal.
So I bought a $700+ Samsung 245T a few years ago. IPS or SPVA are the best options for a non-professional display, according to the internets. The cheaper TN-panel monitors look like crap. I know because a couple years ago I mistakenly bought a "cheap" (450 bucks) Acer 24" monitor to pair with the Samsung and it gave me a headache trying to discern the blurry text. Why I kept that turd around for 2 years is a mystery, but I did.
Anyway, I was trying to dig up a comparable display to the Samsung (since it's no longer in production) and considered the very-well-reviewed Dell 24" IPS. It comes in at 500 + tax. Not bad. Then I discovered the HP. 405 shipped, no tax. Duh.
It's not very pretty, it seems a smidgen cheap in build quality, but dang that text is sharp. I am going to buy another.
A note on another review I've seen here on this same monitor. The issue the reviewer complains about is likely caused by the video card, not the monitor itself. So take that one with a grain of salt. This is a well-built monitor, accurate enough for professional work.
Buy it directly from Amazon if you can. The Marketplace seller's free shipping is very slow.
