To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought this for business use and long hours - excel word email reading etc - not for entertainment ; it was pricey compared to similar other for none business use by approx thirty to forty bucks. Its worth investment especially with additional features of screen adjustment (up & down) and especially when you use multi monitors due to thin sides so both screens placed parallel would look seamless (i plan to buy second one soon). I did try to research other brands for business but either they were very expensive or there weren't many to choose from. Also what i like is direct power input rather than via adopter. on sizing 23" for multi monitor setup is much better than 27" i have that setup at work and it makes neck strained. Input wise it has DP plugin which is perfect. As this is recent addition of HP's it may go down in pricing in few years.
UPDATE: 7/6/2019: Last week this monitor screen started to black out. fr a business series at this price range in little more than a year doesn't speak much of quality. HP warranty 3 year did cover replacement.
This is a competent monitor. Video quality is good but not super. There are a few things to note. (1) There is no DVD input, so if you have an older graphics card with DVD-D output you will need a DVD-to-HDMI adapter. (2) Assembling the pedestal to the base is a bit tricky. The generic sketch in the instructions is of no use. The pedestal and base fit together in just one way, so think carefully about what that one orientation must be. (3) Oddly, the monitor will not turn on until it receives a video signal. Once on, it remains on when the PC is turned off.
Now that we have lived with this for a month or so, down to 2 stars. The power cord plugs vertically into the rear of the monitor and frequently works loose, blanking the screen until nudged in again. Very annoying.
