Expected better


Ideal size for our particular application. Good resolution, no dead pixles, reasonably priced

We have purchased 6 L1506's durng the past 12 months & two have been defective. One of the 6 was DOA. It was 2 months before we reeived a replacement unit from Newegg. The second failure was this past week, not quite a year from purchase date....

Look bigger


Great about 5 years ago. It is outdated, but LCD screens have a price that can not be dropped. It takes so much money to make the electronics in a screen weither 15 inch or 24 inch. 15 inch doesn't make sense anymore. Get a 19 inch widescreen and crop...

It is a reliable monitor. I have had one similar for a few years, and no problems at all. Works if you dont' have a lot of space

Its outdated. It is slow, low contrast and small compared to other monitors. You can easily get a reliable 19inch monitor with way better specs for the same costs

Good all around monitor


Good looking, basic functionality monitor, for a great price. And you get a "real" brand name in HP. For general business use, it's a good buy

Unless there is a problem with rebate process this item is exactly as advertised
