HP ZR2740w

 

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.

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.

Ugh.

None

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...

Great price, great no frills high res monitor

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

Consumer review by:

Great value

 

The extra screen real estate over a 1080 monitor is massive. Compared to other monitors in this class, getting 2560x1440 at 60Hz on an IPS display for this price is worth it. Sounds like this monitor might have some overall quality issues, so it may be...

I wish it had HDMI. I wish it worked in tall mode (probably an OSX issue). I wish the bezel was thinner. The pros definitely outweigh the cons

Consumer review by:

Color Issue!

 

Just like many other owners' complain. The screen has light yellow tint all over the bottom half, and it is overall yellowish except the upper left and right parts which look very white.

High resolution; Good stand

Discoloration; No OSD; Heavy
