"Wow! Computer & Xbox 360 graphics are top notch"5.0 starson by moond22
Pros: Excellent & flexible resolution; crisp, clear images; awesome with Xbox 360 (altough native resolution is 1680x1050, montior auto adjusts to the 2nd best resolution on Xbox)
Cons: Outside of Photo setting, Quickview factory settings are bland. However, can easily implement custom setting
Summary: I've postponed switching to LCD for years because I found the technology of the CRT screens was better. In fact, I still cannot stand the LCD monitor I have at work. I just bought the w2207 to use on my new 410 XPS Dell computer and my Xbox360 and it is an absolute dream. I was torn between comparable models by Dell and Viewsonic, but I have absolutely no regrets about purchasing the HP w2207. Unlike the Dell & Viewsonic, I feel that the HP has, or dang close to, the sharp contrast of a CRT but now it's in high definition. HD computer images are absolutely amazing on this monitor. I should note that because of reading other reviews on this site I have not install the HP software on Windows Vista. (At the moment, Vista is a moderate headache by itself, so I wasn't about to make things more complicated.) I also can't see how the software could really make the monitor better. There are plenty of menu options to make adjustments if one would desire. Gamers will also be quite satisfied. I personally find the screen to be rather huge, but I am only sitting 3 feet away from it. I'm also unaffected by the other complaint by a prior reviewer that the top of the screen is darker than the bottom. However, the reviewer did claim a unique use of professional image art.
Overall, if this monitor caught your eye, rest assured that you won't be disappointed. I shopped for 2 months dreading that I'd end up dropping $350 on something I be slightly disappointed in. For once I feel that an electronic device I bought was actually worth it.
