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.


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.

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...

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

Great No Frills Monitor


I enabled Clear Type text to help with the readability. Download a color profile for the monitor online. While it wasn't perfect, it was really close. Unless you do photo/video work, it would be good enough :)

Fantastic Resolution, great color clarity and response

This is the NO FRILLS model. You get ONE resolution, and everything is scaled to it. Most the time it looks pretty good. Text can be difficult to read at times due to the small size

HP ZR2740w (XW476A4R#ABA)




The first one I got never would start; this one had a stand that wouldn't adjust but otherwise seemed fine. Today (7/24/2014) it wouldn't work at all. I couldn't get any picture to try repairs. I installed my old Dell 24" and ran the repairs. MS...

Cannot adjust height


The first of these refurbs I got didn't work at all. When this one arrived, I was having some health problems, but was able to get it more or less set up satisfactorily, except for the 2-1/2" from desktop to bottom of the bezel. I've tried everything I...

Good picture. Actually, closer to great

Cannot raise screen
