HP ZR2440w LCD Monitor Review: 24-Inch Display Offers Brilliant Color
At a Glance
At $425, the 24-inch HP ZR2440w was the most expensive monitor in our latest test group, but it was also the most capable. It produces brilliant images, it’s easy to adjust, and it can connect to your other electronic devices in lots of ways.
For our roundup of 23- and 24-inch monitors, our jury of testers considered five measures: text legibility, color quality, screen uniformity (whether light or dark spots exist), the smoothness of video containing fast motion, and the visibility of the screen across a range of viewing angles. With its bright 350 cd/m2 of luminance, 16:10 aspect ratio, and antireflective IPS screen, the ZR2440w earned a score of Very Good in all five measures.
In addition, the ZR2440w offers a full complement of ergonomic adjustments--namely, height, tilt, swivel, and pivot. Add a few niceties such as a four-port USB hub and an assortment of input options, including DisplayPort, DVI, and HDMI, and you have a winner.
