This is such a good price, I saw this yesterday and had to hold myself back from buying it... But it's a good sign that the prices of these monitors are coming down.

The Dell equivalent is around £200 more.

More like £300 more. The difference in quality and features is only worth whatever use it would be to you.

We use the U2711 at work. I don't much like it. I'm not sure what the anti-glare is like on the Hazro though.

The Dell U2713HM was only £366 a couple of days ago. £330 if quidco pays out but since that has now expired voted hot as this is the next best thing for this sort of money.
The anti-glare on the U2713HM is non-aggressive and looks good. Much better than the U2711 coating according to reviews.

I came close to buying one myself, but read through that thread; people returned and returned them ad some quit and got a refund. I recently bought myself a U2412M and probably will again, but the U2713HM I'll be staying away from

From what I've read this is a CCL backlit monitor, which means better colour gamut, and slightly warmer colours, but does mean it runs hotter and uses more power than the equivalent LED backlit monitors.

However I'd like to hear any user opinions about the differences between the two backlit technologies. Is one better than the other?

this vs crossover? anyone please

for the money crossover cos they both seem to have bad aftersale/support.

Cracking buy!

The key difference between LED and CCFL is power consumption and the ability to make lighter/thinner monitors.

This monitor is priced keenly, but it has only one input (dual-DVI) which means that it can't be fully used with laptops, unless one buy an expensive Display port to Dual DVI active adapter.

It is also wide gamut, with no sRGB gamut emulation. This means that, with most applications, the colours will be too vivid (Photoshop will work fine though... There is only one browser -firefox with the appropriate configuration- which takes this into account).

Uses DELL U2711 Panel


Interesting choice of words, as Dell never made panels. It is probably an LG panel.

here is a review http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/hazro_hz27wb.htm



For those too lazy to read a full review:

Conclusion:

If you want a good performer at a low cost, and don't need all the extra features and options that some other screens offer, then this is certainly worth a look.

Had my one 2 years in April and can honestly say its the best screen I've EVER owned cant recommend it any higher. Gaming on its amazing. Never had any problems with dead pixels or any other faults 10/10!!!

LouO

Eh?An HDMI to DVI adapter will cost you all of £3.



He's talking about an active Dual Link Display Port to DVI adapter, which you will need if you try to attach a recent Apple laptop (or some other manufacturer) which uses displayport. Note that Dual Link cable is needed for the high resolution of this monitor. Typically these cables are over £50.

Dell U2713HM has a narrower colour range than this and the U2711. For the vast majority of people this isn't a problem as very few people will have a workflow that supports 10bit colour, it's the sort of thing that professional publishers and photographers use.

I'd still buy the Dell over this though for the warranty alone, especially if the Dell 40% off deal comes around again.

Which is why, after a bit of learning, I deleted my post. Feel free to do the same to avoid further confusion.

Not a samsung syncmaster, freezing cold from me.

so just to clarify, if I buy this it will cost me an extra £50 to connect it to my retina MacBook via the thunderbolt port?

Can you hook up a PS3 to one of these?

I really want one of the Korean ones, but I am OCD about dead pixels, at least with this I can keep returning it till I get a perfect one.

HDMI adds processing, which creates an input lag, particularly with the upscaling required from most HDMI sources to this resolution. This is a 'professional' monitor, meant for use with PCs, not a TV

Essentially yes. Make sure to buy the right cable, the things to look out for is that it is Dual Link and make sure it sepcifically mentions supporting 2560x1440 resolution. Many cheaper cables support "full HD" which is only 1920x1080.

anyone after the Dell, its £100 more at Aria at the mo

Thinking of getting this and selling my Catleap with expensive aftermarket stand - but how much would that get me do you think? Around 280 would be perfect...

I think you would be lucky to get 230 unless its a 120hz one ?

with taxes and the stand it was over 330 retail - ta though

If you want native resolution, yes. Also, slightly cheaper than £50 - £37.80 for new here, plus £1.65 for mini-displayport adaptor (from HK).

Thanks for your help. I'm currently using an old Dell screen as a second monitor and it really doesn't have much going for it! I'm tempted by this... But I'm gonna hang fire until my finances are a bit better.

Nothing wrong with using 1920x1020 with it until you have the money for the cable

That's only if it's got a scaler, which I don't believe it does. If it halves the vertical and horizontal like the Dell 3007, you'll get 720p from it, but it possibly won't display anything at all.

If you are looking for a 27 inches screen >>>> AOC e2752Vq it's a very good one.

As some of the comments have shown, there is nothing like a bit of reality/self/empowerment to overcome the weight/stench of the relativity/"other"/knowledge/religion. The startup which aborted "The Cunning which changed Achieva into Hazro but burdened with The Chosen Fewry of Taxation & Credit" has the usual history/"beginning" which lacks Conscience perhaps becuz buyers are merely 'fings to be relegated to the whims and fancies of "'Ow eyes sees fit to change the rules as eyes goes along". Not that its "domestic" bookie/commissioner ,"Overclockers", mind becuz it too will go with the flow of the variability of the rules soo long as the commission is still there - or else. Yes, a bookie is only faithful to his commission and nothing else as it exploits and expands on the Middling Truth to present the image of "Professionalism".

"Professional?" - whose professional and professionalism, eh? Yours, the covert proxy for "Overclockers". Not that HUKD mind such spies within one's midst, of course, because bookies need activity to generate a commission. This is truly a joke not to be missed for in addition to all the Fun & Games, those worshipful of "The 10-bit AFRC-ed Signal" [which requires matching software to attain] ought to realise quickly that the artificial colours that 10-bittiness affords is unreal and perhaps surreal too - OK if you are "a talented and special electronic artist into expanding the colour gamut" [colour with an "u", of course] because of Adobe/CAD Zist & Zat but should you be a human into the natural colours that you were gifted with, forget about the 10-bit nonsense. Like the overly developed of The Brain, oka the underly developed of The Heart, 10-bit colour space is like The Future and its nonsense about "Mining in Mars" and lacks reality other than the impact which TV demos "All Over" switch onto in order to generate the "Wham, Bam, 'Fank U Ma'am" custom. One reason why Adobe Photoshop is the airy-fairy wetdream - but the poor thang dares not get out into the outer universe - or else.

Note too that this 10-bit beastie only has a DL-DVI input port and those whose graphics card is "incompatible" will not be able to view their BIOS [settings] screen without performing some electronic gymnastics. Other than all the drivelling above [better now sweets?], it is a good price for what it is - so long as you maintain your Self stance and not be subjected by your Worshipful/Beggarish/Other stance when "Professional Monitor" trouble insists on staying for some duration.

Fair point. Would be worth checking before buying for this use, though most monitors support several resolutions, so I'd be surprised if it doesn't.
