"Excellent!"4.5 starson by angrykeyboarder
Pros: Excellent color and contrast. Good physical design
Cons: Power and VGA cable could be easier to connect.
Summary: This display came out over two years ago so there are not many new ones out there these days. I bought this in September 2005 as a gift for my Mom. I picked it because it had much better specs than any other 19â€� TFT I could come across in the same price range.
I suppose that is due to it being a discontinued model. Nevertheless it is superior to many late model 19" TFT displays (especially considering the price).
The only really negative thing I an say is that we somehow managed to get a lemon (monitor would not "wake up" from standby mode. you had to unplug it). I contacted HP online and they promptly shipped out a replacement.
The replacement had problems too. Namely its VGA connection was out of whack making it impossible to connect the cable.
Again, HP promptly sent out a replacement.
The third time was the charm. Itâ€™s great.
We dropped off the two monitors (with prepaid shipping labels) at the local UPS outlet.
All is well. I'm actually a bit jealous of this monitor; I really thought mine (Viewsonic VP191s) was better. I'm not so sure anymore.
