"snap crackle pop"on by pthib6181
Pros simple p-n-p
Cons poor quality speakers / customer support
Summary Unit received for xmas. Purchased from Circuit City.
Quality of monitor screen is good; resolution is fine. Colors ok.
Speakers - not so good - crackle and pop at start up, with music and program changes.
Customer support has too many gate keepers. Tech support for questions required tmi. Just wanted to fix the problem with the speakers (if possible), not register or become part of hp's spam network.
Will be returning unit today.
Pros Good bright screen for everday use
Cons Tooka little tweaking to get the clarity needed to enjoy
Summary After rebate at comp usa, I was pleased with the screen. The speakers were not any worse than my powerbook so that was a plus.
Pros Easy to put together, and connect
Cons Speakers Suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary I am really shocked on poorly the speakers sound. The display is beautiful, very vivid, very easy to put together, and very easy to connect. I guess I was expecting too much, for a LCD to have good sounding speakers.
Pros Image is quite good, but now some knobs don`t work anymore. I am afraid it will be broken forever very soon. On/of light seems dead.
Cons not durable
small viewing angle
Summary We liked it but we hoped that it would last longer. The silver case is nice, better than the glossy ones.
Pros picture was ok
Cons crackling and hissing for a year. then nothing
Summary The speakers went out a few weeks after the year warranty was up.. there must have been a defect with them.. There was much hissing and crackling before they completely went dead/... My old speaker 's worked .. It was the monitor.. And HP wanted big bucks to fix it.. I wonder how many other people had a similar problem with this lemon monitor
