-An IPS monitor was a must for me, and this was a bit cheaper then the Dell U2711, so this won out.
-The ultra high resolution takes some getting used to. I came from a 22" monitor at 1680x1050, so the jump to 2560x1440 was quite a difference. Text and window sizes are pretty small at this resolution, which can take some adjustment. Other 27" monitors with TN panels typically use 1920x1080, so be aware that this is even higher and sharper.
-I don't have any major gaming issues. It's no 120hz gaming panel, but as a gamer I'm able to play Modern Warfare 3 or Starcraft 2 without any major ghosting issues. Some more keen eyed people might be bothered, but it's perfectly fine for me.
-The anti-glare coating on the monitor is noticable, which leaves kind of a shimmering effect if you're looking at a white screen. Some might not notice, but I do. However, i'm getting used to it so it's not that big of a distraction.
-The monitor has no on screen display. That's a little weird to me, as it leaves very little adjustment ability for those trying to tweak color and contrast. The buttons only control brightness. Although I'd say the monitor looks very good to me out of the box, so this isn't a huge issue.
-Only Displayport and Dual Link DVI ports are on this screen.Read more ›
Before that, coding was a virtual dream... but for a couple things that may sound familiar. 1) Out of the box, the color temperature was rather green, not just a little, but noticeably green. Correctable, though. 2) The anti-glare coating is indeed awful. Really ruins what would otherwise be crisp text. Truly sad. 3) The dot pitch is a tad fine - what can I say, my eyes aren't what they used to be...
But, the LED back-lighting works great - no "barely imperceptible" flicker. Amazing brightness, good contrast and great colors. Low heat, low power consumption and 2 second start ups. Solid construction, sturdy stand. Finally, 2560 x 1440 resolution - the only justification this monitor needs, at this price. Will suffer through the replacement process for just that reason.
The excessive AG coating on the original units created a grainy appearance, and was worse than the ones on the Dell U3011 and U2711. This grainy appearance makes text look fuzzy and images look noisy. The easiest way to tell is to probably just compare small black text on a white background on different screens.
This review is for a newer unit which has a very light AG coating. The coating is now directly comparable to the Dell U2713HM (which has a nicer AG coating than the U3011 and U2711). In terms of the AG coating, these newer ZR2740w's look better than the Dell U2711 and U3011, and just as good as the U2713HM. It's a huge improvement over the older units.
Reliability: it's unclear whether the reliability of these newer ZR2740w units is better, as other reviews to date have indicated worse than average reliability. That said, every unit should have warranty at least until late 2014 (3 year warranty on a product released late 2011). HP customer support doesn't seem to be as good as Dell's.
Compared to cheaper Korean monitors available for less than half the price, this monitor has 3 year warranty and displayport input (essential for macs). The Nixeus has displayport but is just slightly cheaper currently than this or the U2713HM.Read more ›
