HP ZR2740w review

 

With no customization options (aside from brightness), the HP ZR2740w requires you to accept it as is. However, is its price-to-performance ratio high enough to make its lack of options worth dealing with?

The HP ZR2740w 's pixel-packing 2,560x1,440 resolution makes high-end PC games look incredible. The monitor also includes the full gamut of ergo options and plenty of USB ports. At $700, it's the cheapest way to get an extreme-definition (XD) monitor...

With no included OSD, picture customizations are limited to brightness. Also, a single DVI and one DisplayPort are all the connections you get.

The HP ZR2740w sacrifices customization to deliver a powerful monitor at a reasonable price.

HP ZR2740w 27″ LED-backlit IPS Monitor

 

I picked up a new 27″ iMac a couple weeks ago when B&H dropped the price of the previous generation iMac by $300. Specifically, I bought the 3.2GHz Core i5 unit with a nVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1GB GPU. I paired the iMac with a HP ZR2740w 27″ IPS display.

HP ZR2740w

 

The HP ZR2740w is a 27″ LED backlit, nonglare display with an impressive screen real estate and native resolution of 2560×1440—a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Ergonomics

No OSD; narrow color gamut

The ZR2740w is a good monitor but might be better suited for an office environment than for a graphic studio.

HP ZR2740w

 

The HP ZR2740w is an expensive display that's posh and attractive on the outside, but doesn't deliver the goods.

With an MSRP of $729, we were expecting physical and technological excellence from the HP ZR2740w. While it delivers on the physical side--its stand is a sturdy, flexible addition to the panel that gives it the versatility of a professional artist's...

Its compared above with a monitor costing $250.00 more

 

Monitors of this caliber have come to the home- WELCOME.

Performancce, performance performance- thats all we want OK its compared above with a monitor costing $250.00 more and is comparable.. It's just fabulous and home users rarely change anything. Nuff said

Lack of adjustment choice but it works so well what the heck.

Junk

 

After getting essentially two bad versions of the same monitor, I will avoid HP monitors, and probably all else HP, from this point on. It's a shame as I recall the days when HP was innovative and well made.

Large.

I had to return the first HP monitor because it wouldn't even power up. Earlier this evening, I sat here, talking to my wife and watching the screen, which suddenly went blank. It wouldn't come back. I switched in a new Dell I'd bought for my wife for...

Black Screen

 

I wish I had bought a 144hz free/gsync 1080p monitor instead of this, would enjoy my games a lot more. Also I've never watched anything besides youtube in 1440p, and not due to lack of trying. Content just doesnt seem to exist.

*Great Picture *The highest resolution current GPU's can push games on ultra settings while maintaining FPS

*Had to upgrade GPU (which cost twice as much as the monitor) to be able to run games @ 1440p, and even then its hit or miss. Not a fault of this monitor in particular but still. *Dying 18 months after purchase. Out of warranty out of luck.
