Killer Pro Photo & Graphics Monitor
I personally would recommend this monitor to anyone needing to see truly accurate photos and graphics in their work. I will also tell you everything else looks wonderful as well. All my email, word processing, spreadsheet and browser programs shine with clear and very sharp, accurate, super readable fonts. The extra real estate I get with my Windows 7 Pro desktop is greatly appreciated as well. It's native 1920 x 1200 resolution is a joy.
Great color and clarity at a low price
I purchase purchased and had to return 4 monitors before I got this one. I purchased an ACER which had strong LED bleed though on all sides, then I purchased a Samsung and there was bleed though on 2 sides, after that I went for two LGs and the first one did not have support for it in the US and I could not even register it on LGs website because it was not listed, I then purchased another LG and this one was good in most ways but it was cloudy.
Nice Wide Viewing Angles With Good Color, Very Thin and Compact
HP may have placed their Pavilion name branding on their latest 27-inch display but it frankly offers the same general performance of its more expensive ENVY monitor but at a lower price. The IPS display technology provides it with wide viewing angles and some good color but it still sits at that same 1920x1080p as smaller more affordable displays. Overall, it is a good option for those that are looking for large screen with a basic set of features that still has a relatively thin profile.
Very good image quality, Accurate color rendition
HP's Pavilion 27xi is an affordable 27-inch, full HD display. It looks good sitting on your desk, and image quality on the panel itself will please all but the most demanding users. With no height adjustment on the stand and the lack of VESA mounting capability, the ergonomics are lacking a bit. But, at right around $300 (it has a list price of $340, but we've seen it marked down by HP to $300 for at least a month now), it's also affordable.
An Exceptional Monitor
I had my doubts about this monitor; but for the price and considering all of it's features(and I REALLY like the controls being at the base), I'm quite fond of it.
The picture quality is astounding, I was worried as a gamer that I may notice ghosting(something I tend to pick up on very easily); but there are no such issues. No dead pixels, extremely easy to pull out of the box, put together and hook up.
Excellent image quality
The budget end of the monitor market is suddenly rife with quality 23- to 24-inch 1080p screens with cheap IPS panels in them. You've got to love the fact that you can pick up a full HD screen running one of the best monitor technologies out there for just over a ton. It certainly makes a huge difference compared to the weak, washed-out 24-inch TN panels we were once grateful to pick up for around Â£200.
A number of ways to connect to graphics card
I bought two of these monitors to run with a Mac Book Pro 15. The product details do not mention it, but they came with all the cables one could require to hook these up.
I used the Mini Display Port -> Display Port cables to the Thunderbot ports on my Mac.
The USB port on my Mac I connected to the closest monitor, and then connected the USB feed for the second monitor to the first. I ordered an Apple wired USB keyboard at the same time and connected that to one of the monitors.
Games are incredibly immersive
We really like the U2913WM, and we wish that the U2713HM had followed the same design. Sadly, it looks like the upcoming U2413 and U2713H are following with the old look.
What's rather spectacular about the U2913WM, though, is the price â?? at AU$599, it's enough that people will be asking if they want a 27-inch with the extra 360 vertical pixels, or if 21:9 is in their future.
The monitor works great easy to use and setup and looks very good. I bought it mostly to play my PS3 and switch to my desktop computer. The monitor supports 2 simultaneous hdmi connections (up to 3 total if you also use the vga connection for a pc) which makes it easy to enjoy the highest settings on my devices. When you stop nit-picking everything and realize that game menus aren't everything, the graphics look great on my games and cpu and above all performance is VERY SMOOTH .
Wide viewing angle
Sure, the HP 2311xi's In-Plane Switching panel affords it wider viewing angles than what most 23 inchers enjoy, but that's not what makes it a compelling potential purchase. It's the fact that it has this powerful IPS panel with a price starting at a low $240. That's cheaper than even some Twisted Nematic (TN) monitors, which usually sport pretty low prices.
Great IPS monitor
Moved to a dual monitor system and I wanted monitors with an IPS panel display (best for photo editing). I was a tad sceptical because of the relatively low price, but higher end IPS monitors can run $500+ each. Since I was buying 2, I thought I would try the HP 2311xi, and it turns out that I made a good decision. This is a great monitor!
