HP sucks


Quality and clarity of the screen

One of them arrived with a crack in the display, but no physical damage on the monitor. Talking to HP, they said it's not covered under warranty. I'm never buying another HP product since this is how they treat customers. I spent 1 hour on the phone...

I love it


Beautiful Picture ; Nice Contrast (deep blacks) ; Good Colors ; Thin Bezel ; Puts my old monitor shame

First one I received had a red line through it if you bumped it (connection was loose inside). HP replaced it for me quickly and have had no problems with it since ; Height is not adjustable ; Touch buttons work well, but sure I like them as much of...

Phenomenal Display!!


25" is just at the limit for a good 1080P monitor before you need to go to next resolution. Yet, I surely can't tell that the pixels are further apart on this thing. Color reproduction is perfect, with vivid, accurate images! HP seems to be one of the...

I can't say enough good about this monitor! Glossy screen, out of this world color onscreen, the screen goes almost to the edges, and it even has perfect response time in games. It's light and thin, and uses very little power. Excellent software as...

Awesome Glossy IPS Monitor and Much Bigger Than I Thought!


Super high quality from HP and I plan on buying many more of these little beauties! I hope HP continues to make more monitors like these and just simply improve on the features like including HDMI cables, VESA mounting, USB 3.0 ports, and maybe some...

The 25xi is a really big monitor so no need for the 27xi and is a money saver ; Clear, bright, glossy and beautiful just how I like it ; The slight reflections from the glass screen are not a problem at all just keep the room somewhat darkened ; Love...

None for me, it's perfect in my opinion ; Only thing if you get two of these make sure you have a big desk and plenty of space in your work area because these things are pretty HUGE

Very impressed


There's a driver update available on the HP site that you'll want to use. After installing that and twiddling with the calibration tools for about twenty minutes to get things just so, I was ready to rock 'n roll. Honestly folks, I'm blown away, and...

Well packed, easy to unbox and setup without tools. Absolutely gorgeous display, deep colors and the viewing angles go all the way to the sides. Included calibration tools are very handy for getting things dialed in just right for your environment....

It's light enough that it's susceptible to vibration/movement if your desk isn't on a solid foundation. No provision for a VESA mount (although I hear tale that adapter kits are available). While it comes with VGA and DVI cables, there is no HDMI...

Got this on sale during the shellshocker. Well worth the price of admission.

Colors are amazing, So is contrast sharpness and overall presentation

None, The "glare" is no worse than any other glossy screen. If you know what those are then you know what this is. Not a big deal for me as the room its in doesn't get too bright

Glare, otherwise great


In a dark room, this monitor presents some of the most vibrant colors, and smoothest crystal clear images I've ever seen. However, if you put it in a room with sunlight, the light will undoubtedly make very noticeable reflections off of the screen. The...

Vivid colors ; Smooth picture ; Bright and clear images from every angle

Light glare

Consumer review by: b (

disappointing and overrated.


This is a clear display with great viewing angles due to the IPS. However it also offers a dull, lifeless image, disappointing contrast/"pop", and absolutely useless image calibration software. Since there is no manufacturer warranty and a restocking...

The IPS panel does indeed provide a very comfortable range to the viewing angles. It's nice not to have those subtle distortions as you move around

Unless I have a faulty panel, I don't understand the glowing reviews this monitor receives. I compared this side by side with a far cheaper (and slightly larger) Hanns-G non-IPS panel, and even after considerable efforts to calibrate and adjust the...

Remarkable upgrade for money.


I upgraded to this monitor from a Viewsonic VX900 TFT monitor which had four dead pixels in the middle. The HP, besides having much better resolution and color/brightness, was also an upgrade in size. I also have a 27" iMac so this monitor is a bit in...

Very good brightness and color. Size and resolution for the money is excellent. Connectivity via DVI and HDMI a plus. VGA is there too FWIW

None really so far. Cheap speakers and a microphone would be a bit of a help, but that's not a real con
