"CNET Review is BOGUS"5.0 starson by darthlaidher2001
Pros: The HP 2709m is a very nice monitor the colors are vivid and is very bright(you can turn the brightness down) I noticed no screen tearing at all in DVI.I did not try VGA because i prefer DVI.Its a very large screen and well worth the price.
Cons: Lack of features.
Summary: The Lack of Features is the only down side I seen with the HP2709m.The screen size is nice and cant beat it for the price(Newegg &369,Frys $349) I think you will be hard pressed to find a monitor this size for that cheap and come out a winner.
the HP W2558HC may have all the bells and whistles but that comes at an extra orice aswell. So bottom line is if you want a 27' with vivid colors then this is the monitor for you.
One note though,not really a con but out of the box you might need to tweak the color and brightness a little bit.
Overall a good buy.
