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

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.

The power board WILL fail

 

The model name makes you think you are buying a junior ZR30w

This display is a Taitung special, which you will discover after the power board fails after 40 months (or less). The power board is not sold as a replacement part, only the entire head, or the stand. I've found that the ZR30w works with any...

Garbage!

 

HP really missed the boat on this one. What happened to the quality? They used to make some of the highest quality test equipment in the industry. I should know, I used to work on it. Gold plated circuit boards....

Gorgeous monitor, when it works. Sharp & crisp. It will be painful to go back to 1080p

Dies. I'm on my fourth one. This one lasted several months. It has just died. It is surely out of warranty now, and I am the proud owner of a doorstop
