Ok, not a deal for everyone but this is a superb monitor. It uses an S-IPS panel rather than a TN panel found on cheaper monitors. Cheapest price elsewhere delivered is around £330.

HP Blurb:

The ZR24w delivers outstanding visual performance with its S-IPS panel for enhanced color accuracy at ultra-wide viewing angles, 16.7M displayable colors, 1920 x 1200 resolution, 5 ms response time and 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

Excellent price for an IPS panel.
#2
Shame the 10% code expired at midnight as with that and Quidco @ 8% I would have been very tempted.

Same, even still though this is an excellent price for a 1200p IPS Monitor with a rather epic array of input options

I looked at it last week and the lack of HDMI put me off but at yesterday’s price I might well have bough it.
It has DisplayPort rather than HDMI which is fairly useless unless you want to use ATI’s triple monitor shenanigans. :roll:

There is currently major confusion over the exact panel used by Hewlett Packard for the HP ZR24W 24 Inch monitor. Although the specifications in the advertisement and instruction manual state it's the H2-IPS, the panel is technically an E-IPS (Enhanced) which is inferior to the standard S-IPS (Super In Plane Switching) and H-IPS (Horizontal ) panels. Although the E-IPS has faster response times, perfect for gaming, the panel suffers from lower contrast and brightness levels compared to it's more expensive HP LP2475W. Nevertheless the reviews (TFT Central) have been highly positive and recommend this panel over the TN and a number of more expensive monitors available.

Not necessarily as you could use a HDMI to DVI-D cable and then use a DVI to DisplayPort cable for your monitor. That's what I was thinking about doing anyway.

I'm just a little confused by this H2-IPS display though. Although with that said, as the previous poster pointed out, it does get an excellent review on TFT Central

On their Spec sheet it states this for the panel type:

S-IPS (H2-IPS technology for improved energy efficiency), Wide-Aspect, Active Matrix TFT (thin film transistor)


Here's the HTML version of that spec sheet

I didn’t think of that maybe because I’ve only seen DP to DVI adapters and not the reverse; they don’t seem to be bi-directional unlike DVI/HDMI adapters. Can you buy inexpensive DVI to DP adapters?

I tried the new code HPJune10 and it doesn't work for this monitor.

Umm, now you've got me thinking! After a good search around the usual sites I can't seem to find either:

DVI to DisplayPort or
HDMI to DisplayPort

What an absolute pain :?

On the DVI to DisplayPort front what about this cable

Good to see one for under £10 as I feared that it might currently be a niche product so expensive. :thumbsup:
They also have a HDMI to DP adapter for £12 – Kenable.

I'm still not totally conviced about the direction of a HDMI to DP adapter. I think there might be an error on that website. If you take a look on eBay you'll see quite a few of those same adapters and they only seem to mention DP to HDMI and not the other way around. Also if you take a look at the FAQs on the official DisplayPort site that also seems to mention that HDMI cannot handle the conversion.http://www.displayport.org/consumer/?q=content/faq

I've had another idea (yes, I have been trying to come up with solutions all day!). The other solution is to get a HDMI to VGA cable. From what I can see this is definitely possible and will output at 1080p. Then a DVI to DVI connection for connecting your computer to the monitor. The only reason I suggest this is that I'm still unsure about the whole DisplayPort to HDMI or DVI and visa versa.

That would work even though it’s not ideal. :thumbsup:

You can buy converters but as I originally thought they are expensive as they are more than simple adapters; they even need external power. I did a quick search and they seem to be $120 to $150 dollars. Ouch.

I think for the few times I use my blu-ray through the monitor then I'd go for the HDMI > VGA solution as I can't justify trying to save money on this monitor and then having to stump up $120 for the converter. If that was the case then it'd probably be worth paying the extra and getting the LP2475W monitor instead.

I've actually had the LP2475W on order with HP for the past 2 weeks but I think I'm going to cancel that order and go for this... I think :?
#17
Are there likely to be any discount codes appear in the next week or so that will work with this?
#18
I just thought I'd let anyone know that is thinking of getting this monitor that it really is a stunning monitor and pretty good colour wise straight out of the box. A few tweaks to get it right but overall pretty good. There's only one downside though and that's the connection to a blu-ray player... It can't be done. I have tried everything in an attempt to get it to work via HDMi to DVI but nothing. Even HP have come to the same conclusion as me that it can't be done. Pretty poor in that respect but great in every other.
