Cracking monitor.

One thing tho, Singh. Can't include Quidco in the deal price, as is never gauranteed. Also you usually don't get quidco when using a voucher unless its mentioned on Quidco page. May be the reason for the chilly votes. if it aint, post where its cheaper or get an education on LCD displays peeps.
#2
Sorry, didn't know you can't use quidco in the price.

The 10% off code is mentioned on quidco as a compatible voucher (mine tracked fine).

I'm not expecting this to be a hot deal but for the handful of people out there who are in the market for a reasonably pro-grade monitor, this should be on their shortlist I think. Also bare in mind that the ZR24w is also due anytime now so if you have some patience hold up for a bit.
#3
Not bad, but it's about to be replaced by a similar IPS monitor called the ZR24w and HP's suggested price is 425USD, which is £335. Plus it's sRGB. At that price I'd guess there's probably a few cuts in features though so as long as you can live with the wide gamut on this you're unlikely to regret it.

EDIT: Ninja'd!
#4
Has displayport input, for those wanting an ATI Eyefinity setup.
Tempted to pick myself one up for that reason alone.

EDIT:
Impressive review -

My research suggests that this LP2475w will not be replaced by the ZR24w, the ZR24w seems to be a cut down sibling. Have a look at the US HP site to see how things stand:

Good monitor and hot price if you get the cash back too.

Good thing I can't currently afford one, maybe when I can there'll be some affordable LED backlit IPS monitors about...
#7
thinking of getting this as im a graphic designer, was originally waiting for the benq g2420hdb which has been sold out everywhere for weeks. now that i have seen this, read up about it and seen how all the other monitors which use this tech are nec's (which are awesome!) i am interested

ive got the money for this but is it really worth it?!
#8
If you need colour accuracy then yes, this is the monitor for you.

I've been eyeing up the Dell U2711 but this HP has two advantages over that one.

1. Cheaper.
2. Panel dot pitch is easier on the eyes.

Though I would still prefer the higher resolution of the Dell (am into photography and programming which both benefit (IMO) from higher resolution screens), but as I can't currently afford the HP let alone the Dell that's a moot point (will carry on using my 20+ years old Sony G400 CRT for now).

I'd prefer an IPS based monitor with LED backlighting as such would be cheaper to run and potentially provides a more uniform backlighting which remains accurate for much longer but such monitors are currently silly money!
#9
Pity IPS panel prices haven't dropped much (compared to other TFT screens).
Think I only paid about £300 for my 20" HP IPS screen about 3 years ago (which was not much more than equivalent TN panels); look at the price difference now!

Good quality screens though; so don't confuse them for cheaper TN models.
#10
This is a great price for a monitor with so much connectivity :)
#11
My 21" Sony CPD-G520 CRT is starting to go on the blink :( feel a mug for the amount i paid for that a good few years back now. This is a great deal, voting hot, but cash lacking at the moment and credit card says no :(
#12
amazing how people change mind. i put this deal over year ago and was -300 degree with price below 400 pounds.
the monitor is really good...

For me, it was worth it, definitely. I made a mistake before buying this, I went for a cheap TN panel and I was disappointed with picture quality and viewing angles were shockingly bad. Buy cheap, buy twice. So I sent it back and decided to go for something more up market, this HP. Before I even opened the box I knew it was a serious bit of kit, the box weighed 3 times more. You can tell it's a quality product when you're assembling the thing.

And when I switched it on, the colours just took my breath away. This is in a completely different league to the TN panel I went for, the difference is night and day. Viewing angles are great and the stand adjusts anyway you can think of. I've had mine for a few days and I'm in love with it already :thumbsup:

If you can afford it, I would recommend it unreservedly. If you're doing colour critical work or generally appreciate quality products, this is worth investing in.

There are absolutely loads of positive reviews for this monitor all across the net, they can't all be wrong:

Just for info, there is a 22" inch model IPS screen of this model also avaiable for £220+VAT
#16
I can't get the e-voucher to work , has it expired????
#17
I've got this monitor, very nice, loads of connectivity. Great colour, did end up having to buy a Screen Spyder 3, as my old Screen Spyder 2 couldn't handle the wide gamut this monitor delivers - I needed accurate colours for editing wedding photographs.
I do get a little bit of screen bleed at the bottom of the monitor, then again I rarely use it to watch films, and don't have much dark content.

I read a load of reviews, and the only other monitor at the time (within my price range sub £400) was the dell top of the range, however this was about £50 cheaper (I paid £350 for mine, and quidco paid out).
#18
"This e-voucher cannot be applied" error. Looks expired. :-(
#19
I bought this from HP last night and used HPDISVR5 for 5% discount.

Quidco is tracking.

PS I already have one of these monitors - it's just as good as the reviews say.
#20
I had one of these on back order, and the ETA was 30/04/2010 and the guy on the phone wasnt sure when they would be in so I went a got the HP ZR24W from Ebuyer for 338.55 with next day delivery.
#21
That is quite nice - it certainly ticks all my boxes: DisplayPort, 16:10, USB hub. But I am not sure it is worth paying from than twice what I would pay for a cheap 24" monitor. After all, this is all about price, and the price ain't great.
#22
Cheap for an IPS monitor but I don't think its worth the premium, for normal PC usage you won't be able to tell the difference. The £150 deal yesturday for a standard 24" from Amazon with 3y warranty makes more sense for most people IMO.
#23
Seems IPS monitors are still pretty expensive! My 20.1" nec cost about the same price, and I bought that a long, long time ago.

True but if you do anything with colour i.e. design and web stuff then IPS monitors are a must as they will give the same colour at varying angles.

The thing is the price is great for an IPS monitor. A very good price in fact.
#26
Great monitors, got two of these :)

If anyone is palnning to use displayport with Apple devices, you may have some problems. My old firmware version monitor worked fine the new ones looses sync. Apparently HP are happy to pick swap units - aimed at biz users so dont annoy them.

Damn, I assumed this was the new one and voted hot. HP really do use crap, meaningless model numbers!

Another reason I thought so is hadn't this monitor been off sale for a little while now?

This isn't really intended for "normal" PC usage :)

Though it would still make a very good (overkill) office screen :-D

NEC's 23" EA231WMi IPS is pretty good value at £280 IMO. If you don't need the extra vertical res it could prove to be a good, cheaper alternative.
#31
Great monitor - bought one a year ago for £390 and it was well worth every penny. Trouble is I'm used to IPS panels now so couldn't go back to the cheaper TNs!
#32
this is a tough choice for me :x
TN+SSD vs IPS+Harddrive
both bundle cost similar money, hmm....
#33
Awsome monitor - have one sitting on my desk.

Keep in mind that while color reproduction is great, on these "cheaper" IPSs monitors black is not quite black, but sort of a weird florescent black.

IPS monitors that have a "black-black" cost a lot more dosh, so I'd say this one is a great value.

Put it this way I thought my Eizo S-PVA monitor which is a quality monitor (and more expensive when I bought it 4 years ago) was awesome. I bought the LP2474w from HP with discount a couple weeks back and it humbles my Eizo, god knows what it would look like next to a TN (cheap) monitor. You can tell the difference by a large degree believe me. Reds in particular just pop and look so pure.

I don't see the point in wasting money on a crappy monitor when the monitor is the thing you look at to interact with your computer. Why wouldn't you want as good an image as possible, doesn't make sense to me. Invest a little bit extra in a good monitor and have it to last you several years. It will pay for it's self over time.

As for the monitor, it's superb, at this price it's a no brainer if your also considering the Dell U2410 which is virtually the same. One thing you should know however, is that it's a known issue for this panel (and the dell) to suffer from a green to red tinge when viewing a white screen. My panel which was manufactured in Feb of this year suffers with this tinge. On anything other than a white background you can't notice it, but for graphic designers it would be a real pain. Out of the box calibration is very good, but to get the best out of it you do have to calibrate it. Awesome monitor for the money however!

If you get the tingeing you can send it back to HP and they will replace it. Their returns policy is said to be very good once you finally get through to them.

Thats not even a choice, has to be the monitor. It's the one thing you look at bets part of the day. Massive difference over TN.
#36
My monitors usually outlast my PCs by quite a few years, so spending quite a bit more doesn't matter - even a 300 quid monitor that lasts ++3 years is cheaper than a 500 quid PC which only lasts 2 years before it needs upgrading.

At work I have a Dell S-PVA panel, the 2409WFPA? variant, and it was so much better than the Iiyama CRT that I thought my eyes were going bad when at home, so I bought the NEC 20WGX2pro when it was being discontinued and now my display at work seems a bit so-so! For example, I have a photo of a sunset from my holidays which is stunning at home but merely very nice at work.

The Dell U2410 is very good, the Dell 2209WA is quite good but not exceptional as its only E-IPS

The HP LP2475w is said to be exceptional but indications are the zr22 and zr24w from HP are merely quite good; however the zr models will force the price of the LP down.

Since few people own a calibrator and don't need absolute accuracy, the NEC EA231WMi, HP zrXX and Dell 2209WA are probably plenty good enough for most people.

I'd agree, get the screen and continue the wait for SSD prices to drop and the technology to continue to mature.

I made this very choice recently...
#38
great screen, need LEDs and a lower price point! then everybody can have IPS tech :D

IPS is elitist, only graphic/studio/art/geeks know what it means, so to some extent IPS buyers WANT the price difference to separate them from the braying TN masses.

Hell no. It's just TN panels are so crap in comparison, you cant go back. I always felt ditching the good old CRT was a mistake until I came across IPS. I would love IPS to become more affordable. Reality is most of the market will pick the biggest cheapest monitor they can.
