HP DreamColor LP2480zx review: HP DreamColor LP2480zx


It's difficult to justify buying an electronic device that costs $2,500 or more. The HP DreamColor LP2480zx costs $2,500 if you buy it directly from HP, but you can find it for $2,900-to-$3,000 from other online retailers. At those prices, only...

The HP DreamColor LP2480zx has impeccable color reproduction and includes direct black level control.

The HP DreamColor LP2480zx forgoes direct color and contrast controls and can't compare, featurewise, to its competitors. Its price is a pill that's hard to swallow.

The HP DreamColor LP2480zx is a performance monster that costs too much for the features it offers.

HP DreamColor LP2480zx


It's not often you encounter a product that can shake up the marketplace. The press release may promise something that's "revolutionary," but that's rarely the case. With the HP DreamColor LP2480zx 24-inch LCD display, however, the product really could...

HP DreamColor LP2480zx Professional Display


Color critical work places high demands on displays, and not many LCD models are up to the task. HP is taking on that market in a very serious way with its new DreamColor LP2480zx Professional Display, and its low-ball price makes the display...

Review: HP DreamColor LP2480zx LCD display


Ever since LCD displays came out, professionals in the Video and photographic industries have not readily adopted them because they were not very good at displaying true colors. Over the years they have gotten better, but not until today did they have...

HP DreamColor LP2480zx


A monitor for professionals

Superb up-scaling of video, impeccable colours

It's hard to fault this monitor, but it probably could use some more calibration options in its menu system

For colour critical applications, this monitor is ideal. Its colours were vibrant and its black level was perfect.

HP DreamColor LP2480zx - 24in Professional LCD Monitor


Are one billion colours enough to make this the ideal CRT replacement?

In the DreamColor LP2480zx, HP has delivered an early candidate for product of the year. Its 30-bit panel and colour space support are unprecedented in this price range, while the ease of use and wealth of options can't be easily faulted. Now all HP...

HP DreamColor LP2480zx review


The studio wanted a panel with a wide colour range and good linearity suitable for movie editing as well as stills, and the HP DreamColor LP2480zx is the result - or so we're told.

At almost £2,000, the HP DreamColor LP2480zx isn’t exactly a budget 24in monitor, and HP is taking on some tough competition from Eizo and NEC. The wider gamut and extra features give it a technical edge, but considering that a similarly specced...

HP's DreamColor is a dream come true for amateur photographers and wannabe directors. But, boy, does it come at a price…

A breakthrough for almost affordable LCDs that should filter down to cheaper panels soon

HP LP2480zx


HP's LP2480zx is a sight to behold. Now if only we had a spare AU$4,200 kicking around...

Natural, vibrant colours without being garish ; Large array of inputs ; Massive configurability through the OSD

PIP mode not as comprehensive as it could be ; Bundled calibration software has poor multi-monitor support

We have, perhaps, enjoyed this little glimpse into the professional world a little too much. Now if only we didn't have to send it back.
