HP ZR24w


High-end monitor has plenty of customization features

Easily adjustable base for simple setup; Good performance

Only has one DVI input

If you’re looking for a monitor with good performance that’s low-maintenance and cheap, the HP S2031 is perfectly suited to that end.Read More...

HP ZR24w


HP's ZR24w has been around for over a year now, but remains a popular screen due to its high quality IPS panel and low price tag compared to professional monitors.

Expert review by : Rasmus Larsen (



HP has released their new ZR series that replaces the LP series. The new ZR24W is the 24-inch variant but this year both the 22-inch and 24-inch comes with an IPS panel. The IPS panel technology is suited for graphic work and discerning users who are...

Black levels; Brightness cannot be lowered enough; Minor bands in gradients; Energy consumption ; "Dirty look" from IPS coating

HP ZR24W is attractive because of its IPS panel and very low price. It's cheaper than Eizo EV233WH and Dell U2410 (at least here in Denmark), and priced similar to the NEC EA231WMi. ZR24W is definitely a good monitor but it also has some disadvantages....

Not good


This model suffers a problem where the fluorescent bulbs are not secure and they break. If one bulb is broken the monitor will come on for a moment but then the screen will go blank and not operate without the full set of bulbs fully functional....


Unit arrived defective. It was a refurb and had the same problem that a quick google search indicates that others have had with this model. Attempted to return but was rejected as it was not in the original packaging. Being a refurb it came in a plain...

Don't. Just, don't.


Drruuuumm roolllll sez .... of course I returned it. Newegg was fantastic about it. I had to send a few pictures to show its condition, but they graciously refunded the full purchase amount without argument. I lost about 10 to 12 hours of my personal...

None to speak of.

Received with just under 9,000 hours in-service, and it showed. Could not adjust to true white to save my life. But, that was just the icing. The vendor "packaged" it in a ridiculously thin cardboard box that was too small to accommodate the...

Only lightly refurbished


If you're doing visual arts stuff, I wouldn't trust these monitors. Email and web browsing, sure, if it's cheap.

Cheap monitors, and they do work.

They don't necessarily work well. One of the two monitors I purchased wouldn't work with VGA, while the other one worked with a VGA cable. (They both worked with other cable types.) One has a sort of stain on the edge of the screen, which is noticeable...

Image retention issues


I should have bought a new Dell monitor for extra $80 instead

No dead pixels Like new condition

Image retention issues (worked in Excel for just couple of hours, closed the application and the Excel toolbar was still clearly visible on the desktop) Bad backlight bleed Inadequate packaging

Refurb monitor (5 stars), packaging was lacking (3 stars) = 4 star review


It's a good purchase if you need a slightly older monitor to match an existing set. Otherwise, pony up a little additional money for a 1900x1200 Asus PA248Q or Dell U2412m/U2415 (the latter for USB 3.0 included).

I needed a replacement second monitor to match the existing one and found this as a refurbish sale item. What luck! I received the monitor promptly. It looks to be in the stated condition with only minor external blemishes.

The packing left a lot to be desired. Perhaps it was an attempt to fit into a certain size of box for the included free shipping, but the monitor stand was actually protruding out the top/side edge of the box. The box appeared to need another inch of...

Excellent Monitor


Screen images are sharp and clear. Stand is solid and easy to rotate if needed. I mainly use this for business so it is great for viewing spreadsheets, project plans and having two documents side by side. It also has a matte finish which I prefer over...

It would have been nice if they included a display port or DVI cable instead of a VGA cable.

Refurb = Used


The first one I received had 4 non-functioning buttons, things rattling around inside, and all of the adjustment elements needed tightening to be of any use. I sent it back, and got one with more rattling bits inside, and a small display distortion...

Great original product by HP. Excellent color reproduction, and convenient adjustment options. Good price.

Both items I laid hands on look and feel "used" rather than refurbished.
