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.

After a few hours playing with my new ZR30W, the results are in!

I've tested images and gaming of the ZR30W versus the other monitors on my desk; the LG W3000H 30", BenQ G2400W 24" and Viewsonic's VX2265WM 120Hz 22". I have not yet color calibrated the screen with my Spyder 3 Elite.

First impressions:
The ZR30W came in a real nice thick quality well packed shipping box.
The Bezel around the screen is just a tad thicker than I was imagining in my head, just a few millimeters shorter than the LG W3000H. One positive to the HP bezel though is it's the same width on all four sides which is helpful if you ever want to do portrait multi-display.
The stand is nice and wide with a decent heft. Just plain matte black plastic, the LG's is a little fancier and has a piano black gloss base.
There is not as much vertical adjustment on the HP as I would have wanted. Especially for us taller people, it's nice to have a screen that can raise pretty high. The LG stand allows another inch or two height here, so the LG wins the stand department. Neither can do portrait mode, you would need a much beefier stand design to reach that tall.
The HP has a nice aluminum strip around the entire edge of the display , adding a nice quality touch. These 30" panels are very deep though, for multi-display gaming overlapping the displays bezels will be a bit tougher. I have removed the LG's bezel before and there was significant space savings to be had with the bezel removed for surround gaming. I haven't done this yet to the HP as to make sure I have a long term fully functioning display before voiding any warranties. Although if removed properly, i don't think the manufacturers could notice that the bezel was removed.

Ok, I'm a gaming fanatic. I like high frame rates, low input lag, nice color range, and high resolution. I was willing to put up with a little bit of input lag for the sake of the massive resolution and color range you get with the ZR30w. But, having played a whole bunch of games (including ALL of the Crysis titles, all recent CoD titles, BC2, Just Cause 2, and, of course, ME2) on it for well over a month, I haven't noticed any increase in lag or ghosting. (And I was looking.) And I upgraded from a Samsung 2493HM, which is known to be a very, very responsive 1920x1200 monitor. (Frame rates weren't adversely affected either, but, hmmmmmmm, that's probably due to upgrading to two GTX 580's in SLI.)

Granted, there are faster monitors out there. But they have about half the pixels! And they can't compete with the color contrast and vibrancy of this monitor, either. (As you'll notice if you read some of the other reviews of the ZR30w, some think its colors are oversaturated. I take their point, but I like it.) Maybe I'll rethink things if, at some point, I start getting pwned online due to the lag between control inputs and visual feedback. But so far so good. And my games have never looked so very, very nice!!!!!! Eye candy is just so much sweeter on this monitor.

Oh, and it's great for other stuff you might do with your computer, too. A lot of my work is done on my gaming pc, and it often helps to have a handful of documents and webpages in view at the same time. The desktop space on this thing is NICE! And it's not too heavy of a monitor, either, which means you won't have much trouble finding a monitor arm to mount it on. (I'm using an

I hooked this up just a few hours ago to my Win7, 64-bit PC with Nvidia Quadro 3800 graphics card via the Display Port connection. All I can say is; I'm in big monitor heaven! I've had a 27" Dell 1900x1200 monitor for years (the fine 2707 that they no longer sell), and that was always a beautiful screen. But this new HP monitor is in another world entirely.

Out of the box, I noticed it was a bit blue-ish and seemed a bit over-driven. Of course, that's going to be relative depending upon graphics card settings. Since this monitor has no internal color or tone controls, it relies on the driver settings from your graphics card. This should pose no real problem, as all the controls anyone would need can be accessed from the software. But I ran a calibration on it using my Eye One Display 2 colorimeter, and that balanced the appearance to a more neutral look.

As this is my first 2560x1600 monitor, that much desktop real estate is going to take a while to get used to. But so far, I can say that I have never seen images on a computer look so clear, colorful, smooth, or detailed. Stunning isn't even close to how great everything looks on it.

Given the S-IPS technology, great color range, and the price, this is obviously aimed at the graphics and photo pro market. Compared to the "serious" pro-level monitors from companies like Eizo or LaCie, maybe this has some shortcomings (though I wouldn't know where to find them). But at a quarter to half the price of those other monitors, this is a flat-out steal. Unbelievable!
