Looks nice

Not the highest resolution out there, but exactly what I was looking for. Great picture. The only issue is the power adapter it uses (instead of a regular computer power cable). The cable between the adapter and the display is a bit too short and means that adapter has to be attached under the desk and not on the floor.

I love them I bought 2

I got them on sale and I have no regrets. Sure there is glare, but who gives a hoot. Its vibrant enough for the time spent on the computer. Netflix movies look fantastic. Documents are clear. Great space, thin attractive design. Just looks awesome in my office. was going for an all in one touch screen but I am not sold on the reliability of the new touchscreens and got more bang for the buck buying 2 monitors and a more powerful tower that the 27" Hp all in one at the highest model available. Happy customer

Great Monitor

I ordered a set of 2 of these monitors to have a dual 27in setup. Great monitors overall. A little too reflective of light though, but they are glossy monitors so you have to expect that. Great Colors.

Issue !

had two of these monitors so its a recurring issue (bought one, exchanged for a second because of this) HDMI doesn't seem to detect the monitor is connected, just shows check video cables. It worked on the first day but didnt work after having turned my computer off overnight... happened with both monitors, so either i got two lemons or big issue VGA works perfectly fine, the monitor is decent, although 1080p for this size is borderline sifficient really good for the price if you get it on sale, disregarding the HDMI issue if you aren't going to use HDMI in your life, then this monitor is good

HP 27" IPS LED Backlit Monitor (27BW)

Awesome monitor. Bright & clean. I use it for work as a second monitor with my laptop. It's big enough to fit two Exel spreadsheets side-by-side. Or view blueprints without having to squint or zoom in. I will be buying other one as a third monitor. I wish I would have done this six years ago.

Great Monitor

I am using this alongside a Samsung S27B370 in a dual monitor configuration. The clarity of the HP27IPS is noticeably better in respect to overall sharpness. Colours are very good and the lack of a bezel makes for a nice overall appearance. After 3 weeks of use, I'm highly satisfied. The only thing I don't care for very much is the glossy screen that can produce annoying reflections under some conditions. However, this is not too bad since I can angle the monitor to reduce this. Overall a very nice monitor and at the sale price, it's hard to beat.

Great monitor

Great monitor! Light, thin and nearly bezel less on the sides. IPS screen is sharp and colors are vibrant. Glossy screen takes some getting used to. Glare can be minimized with the positioning but it'll turn into a 27 inch "mirror" while it's off.

HP 27" IPS LED Backlit Monitor (27BW)

Awesome monitor for the price. Has all required connections...HDMI, DVI, VGA. Display is bright, clean and crisp. Doesn't turn side to side or up and down, or have USB connections, but not a deal breaker. Running dual monitors and when side by side, I never realized how poor the old display was. Ended up buying another HP! Great value if your looking for a no frills display monitor for a great price.

Awesome Moniror

This is one of the best Monitors out there in terms of Quality to cost ratio. I am very pleased with the quality of the colors, the monitor is very light to carry on your desk, it can tilt backwards but you can't elevate it vertically. It has very convenient slots for DVI, hdmi and VGA inputs. The only thing i wish it had was integrated speakers. But overall what a monitor, it's just amazing !!!

Wow, what a monitor.

Fantastic Monitor... I went from a 21" gateway to this. This monitor is So bright, Had to turn it down to 50%. The colors and clarity are insane. I am in awe every time i turn it on. I was Leary on the high ms. but..... it's just fine for gaming. Great buy.

Pretty good

Good monitor, clear and crisp display. Cheap. Low native resolution at 27" is not very good though. 2560x1440 would make more sense for a screen this large. Better as an impromptu TV than a monitor but not bad either.

Mint

Grabbed this on sale = huge, massive deal... even at full price it's worth every penny. IPS panel image quality simply destroys everything else out there, there's just no comparison; once you see this you will never go back to regular cheap TN screens. Personally not a big fan of glossy panels (I prefer matte because less reflections) but it still looks amazing. Good solid base. 27" is a nice size, fits two full windows side by side without problems. At this size it would have been better having a higher resolution, but it's not a deal breaker. The response time is fine as well--even for gaming, 7ms makes no noticeable difference. Coming from a 3x23" Eyefinity setup I'm extremely impressed, now I just need two more... Very highly recommended, good luck finding a better 27" panel for the price.

Good Bugdet 27" Monitor

It's hard to find a 27" 1080p television or monitor, let alone one for a good price. When on sale, this HP model is a great choice depending on your needs. Out of the box, the monitor was strong enough, but the stand has limited adjustability and the bezel-free design means the screen actually pops out a bit if you bend the back a little. Colors look ok at first, but a bit of adjusting (not easy, there was no manual to say what the buttons or settings did, or why some settings were sometimes adjustable and sometimes not), and the colors were quite nice, much better than my budget television and laptop screens. Using as a computer monitor and a PS3 monitor, it works great, although certain bluray movies with varied color palettes may mimic a color with a static line effect using two colors together. This doesn't happen often though, only sometimes with NTSC color input from movies, I think. The 1080p screen at this size is perfect for me, having been used to 720p for a long time, great for watching movies at a desk. Picture is good from all viewing angles thanks to IPS screen technology. There's no built-in speakers, or headphone jack to connect to, so do some research to see how you can connect external speakers if you're using this for anything besides a desktop computer. Great monitor if: - you have been using screens less than 1080p before now. - if you need a large, simple monitor with good colors for a good price for your computer or console. - haven't upgraded your monitor in a few years. Not great if: - you've already owned a 1080p (or better) screen at 27" or less. - perfect colors for movies and work is necessary. - you don't have some speaker system or headphones you can use with your computer or console box.

A good monitor

I bought one recently at Future Shop at its lowest ever price. I used it to hook up my 14" Sony laptop (with HDMI) for photo editing on a bigger screen. It produces brilliant picture quality, but I have to tune down the brightness and contrast a bit when I'm using Photoshop in order to make the colour more natural for print output. Overall, it's an excellent monitor at a great price, especially for viewing web movies.

Excellent monitor!

My needs: Reading/surfing and video content (youtube and netflix). Could not be happier. [The price] for 27 inches of 1080p viewing area is awesome. Decent contrast, vivid colours, good controls and settings. I had it out of the box and adjusted to my viewing preferences in about 30 minutes. Finally, the frameless look is very sleek. Love it!

Good Upgrade

Bought this to replace a 24 inch TN panel,for a TN panel it produced very good picture,but this is better.IPS panel gives rich deep colour and reproduces colours that my other one did not. Some people do not like the glossy finish on the screen,but I do like it,nice sharp images. The included software is useful for adjusting some aspects of the monitor,not comprehensive, but useful. If you are looking for a good monitor at a good price then this is the one, 27 inches is just right. You can pay more for higher resolution panels,but for me this fit the bill.
