Don't even bother with the non LED 27" monitor,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HP 2711x 27-Inch LED Monitor - Black (Personal Computers)
Really quik I just wanted to come on and review this product. Although I've only had it plugged in for a couple hours, iI think I'm 100% satisfied.
No dead pixels, IT's ULTRA THIN!!! It feels like I could hold it in my lap it is so thin and light.
The AC adapter sits outside of the monitor, which I think is its only downfall. I don't particularly like the look of cords, and especially big black boxes. There is no audio jack, or at least I haven't found it.
Set up was easy, it runs cool, I think I've gotten over the need to get a 30" apple cinema display with this monitor. Beautiful!!!
This is my 6th HP minotor. I'm a huge "Bright View" fan. I like my images on the brighter side. The contrasts look excellent. Of course if you aren't a bright monitor fan then you can turn it down. It's good to have the option though. Smooth rendering of text...I plan to buy a second one soon and it's nice to know I can turn these into tv's when I've upgraded my system some day to even bigger monitors as it has an HDMI port.
I was a little hasty in my original review. Some thing you should know before you buy this monitor:
1. No speakers or audio at all. Kind of a bummer! I hate dealing with extra equipment.
2. No vesa mount. You will have a really hard time trying to figure out how to mount this on a wall mount. Luckiy it is really light weight and you could I suppose use some reay good double sided take (there's some really good stuff out there) to do the job.
3. Ac adapter on the outside. The kind that 4' PC cord goes into the black box, then an additional 3' power cord with plug on the end. HATE those! I like what apple did with their pc cords where the bulky part stays on the wall. I much prefer that set up. You wont have a nice tidy desk with this monitor. BOOO!!!
I still love it though. I did buy a second one.

Hi, Does this monitor have a glossy or matte screen?

I've been using only NEC, due to it's crisp text. But those LCD's have become prohibitively expensive for me. I'm thinking of going to HP for my new computer build.
So how does text look?

Amazon Customer says:
No VESA mount. *sigh* Just when I thought I found the perfect monitor to hang on my wall...
