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.
Mostly very happy -a keeper, indeed
I am very pleased with my new Envy 27: it looks and sounds great. I am upgrading from a 19" 720 display in a 2006 HP Touchsmart. I paid $408, which was $9 more than HP was charging on the day I checked last month -the Amazon account convenience and delivery-reliability was worth it. I am using a display port-to-display port connection and I didn't detect any difference when I tried a VGA connection using a DVI-I to VGA adaptor which came with my computer.
Very stylish looks, big display, glossy front
Checking the colour gamut coverage, sRGB reached 97%, Adobe RGB at 76% and NTSC at a lowly 71%. Brightness consistency was mostly satisfactory except for the right side which was much brighter - up to 16.3% difference at 100% brightness setting. Checking the screen on pure black there was clear light leak on that side too. Colour consistency across the display was fairly even, apart from the bottom centre third where it varied by Delta-E 4.4 at 100% Brightness.
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!
Good but not great
I really like this screen and am happy I bought it. These "complaints" should be read more as observations. If HP put out the same product in a smaller form factor I would prefer it, but am in no way displeased with this product. I also expect the driver issue will be resolved shortly--these things usually are. In any event, setup was super easy and the conflict does not really effect system stability. Nor is it much of an annoyance once you know how to deal with it.
Nice IPS monitor for the price, but there are caveats
My reliable HP 2509m monitor got the black screen of death after 3 years of use. I began researching IPS monitors and I had narrowed my selections to Asus, Dell and Viewsonic, but at the last moment HP released the Xi series of IPS monitors with great specs: an IPS LED-lit panel with an almost bezeless screen, with HDMI, DVI and VGA, all for less than the price of competitors I researched.
