HP 2709m

 

HP's new 27-inch 2709m is considerably larger than the rest of these displays; it's also more expensive ($400).

Large display; great performance when watching Blu-ray or gaming; two HDMI inputs

Small text rendered very poorly; distracting reflection

We also found a discolored pixel on the 2709m (HP calls this a “bright sub-pixel defect” and doesn’t cover it under warranty unless there are two or more).

HP 2709m

 

The 27-inch HP 2709m offers a larger screen than the 25.5-inch HP w2558hc, but that's about the only advantage the display has over the latter. The 2709m exhibited worse performance in games and movies and has fewer features, and a slightly lower...

The HP 2709m includes screen tilt and swivel, built-in speakers, and an ambient light sensor

The HP 2709m has frequent screen tearing in games and movies, and its presets over-saturate the colors

The HP 2709m's lack of features makes it less desirable than HP's own similarly priced w2558hc.

"This is an outstanding monitor at a great price."

 

I am 100% satisfied with my HP 2709M. 

I compared the HP 2709m to an LG M2762D side by side at Fry's. I wanted to buy the LG product for the lower price and the HDTV tuner. I could not get past the vastly superior display quality of the HP 2709. I bought it to replace an HP W2408

I hated giving up the HDTV tuner in the LG M2762M to buy the HP 2709M, especially at a higher price

Very good for what it it and price.

 

Curious this review says the HP w2558 is 24.5" and 25.5". They say you may rather go with the w2558 because it has more features, but those features aren't mentioned head to head and if the w2558 is 24.5" then a 1.5" difference seems rather large.

I tried this monitor at a friends house, it seemed very good compared to other 27" monitors. The smaller size monitors for no seem to have better screens, but at this size for this price I'll take it

Not as good as some smaller screen monitors

Excellent, Beautiful Design, A great Value

 

Well made, love the stand and swivel base, even the power switch is beautiful. After almost a year not one problem. Recommended.

Image is first rate, added a internal Blu-Ray to my system just for this set. 1080p is outstanding. Best of all the price, would buy again

At first the display was to bright, after adjustments great. Would have liked 2 HDMI inputs
