GOT THE HP ZR24w,
AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT.

Blacks did need work however,
otherwise the monitor is sick.

Here's a comparison from tftc applaud.gif

Approximate price - The ZR24W is around £120 cheaper than the other two models. This is a significant difference to anyone surely?

Features - I've placed the ZR24W slight behind the other two as it lacks the same preset options, some interfaces and in the case of the Dell, things like 10-bit internal processing

Interfaces - Again, the ZR24W is slightly behind. There is at least DVI, VGA and DisplayPort, but no component, HDMI, composite etc

sRGB colour support - Obviously the ZR24W has a good edge here since it's a standard gamut screen anyway. If you are wanting to work only in the sRGB colour space, the standard backlighting here is probably more suited. The Dell does feature a fairly decent sRGB emulation mode at least, and the LP2475W's emulation doesn't seem to work at all!

Extended gamut support - The LP2475W and Dell are both using extended colour gamut backlighting, whereas the ZR24W is limited to only sRGB / 72% NTSC. If you want to work with extended colour spaces, the ZR24W is not for you.

Panel Uniformity - The HP models take the combined crown here being pretty good from what we saw. The Dell has some leakage issue. Results may vary, but this is based on the review samples we have looked at

Office and Windows - I've tied them all here since there's nothing really to separate them.

Viewing angles - only a minor separation here really, but there was a slightly more pronounced contrast shift vertically on the ZR24W than on the other two.

Movies Overall - I've put the ZR24W slightly behind the other two due to its more limited connectivity options.

Responsiveness - They are all very close really. I've given the edge to the Dell since it is more free from any RTC overshoot and slightly faster than the HP models. The ZR24W is perhaps fractionally slower than the LP2475W but is less prone to overshoot and dark trailing (assuming Video Overdrive left off) so they are tied.

Input lag - pretty good all round really, but the ZR24W takes the 1st place here at 10ms, with the Dell (game mode) at 14.4ms and the HP at 25ms average.

Colour accuracy Default - Out of the box, the ZR24W offers the most accurate colours with dE average of 2.5. Neither the Dell or LP2475W offered particularly good colour accuracy at default settings or with preset modes, and need some decent calibration really to get the most out of them. This can cause further problems due to the extended gamut where oversaturation of reds and greens can be common.

Colour accuracy calibrated - All very good and pretty much nothing in it, but the Dell and HP ZR24W have a slight edge at 0.2 average dE. The HP LP2475W had average 0.3 and maximum 0.5 once calibrated.

Black depth - If you're using contrast setting of 100%, black depth is good. At 0.18 it is slightly behind the LP2475W (0.17) but ahead of the Dell (0.22). You will need calibration to really be able to use this high contrast setting without issues though.

Static Contrast Ratio - as a static number of 667:1, the ZR24W is slightly behind the LP2475W (694:1) but ahead of the Dell (541:1)

Dynamic Contrast Ratio - The ZR24W has a DCR which works fairly well and boosts contrast ratio to around 1372:1. The Dell has one which works to a similar degree, but the HP doesn't have one at all.

So is the ZR24W better than the LP2475W and U2410? - I hate to cop out, but I'd have to say "yes, but only in some areas"....(see below)

I'm also reading about "tinting" issues with the Dell,
pink hues on white screens, etc..

kinda hasty choice if you ask me. i would have taken a few days to make a choice.

im not too happy with hp monitors. they either dont have sharp text and some show show poor blacks.
if i were gonna spend real money i'd lean with a dell.


imo the most important factor is text quality and hp monitors repeatedly phail in that department. i dont care how many usb hubs a monitor has. im not gonna lose my eye site coz it was given to me for free.
text on my hp monitors are noticeably blurry compared to the v7 so they are secondary and tertiary monitors.

I have been researching furiously all day and finally pulled the trigger on the HP ZR24w as well. I considered these same models as well as the Dell U2311H. The HP's attractive price, 1920x1200 resolution, DisplayPort, minimal AG coating, and 8-bit panel were what won me over. I'm hoping that I can adequately deal with the black levels using the calibration settings mentioned in TFTCentral review.

Good luck!

For gaming you should have 16:9. Bigger field of view and less black bars.

I therefor choosed "neither".

Yup, I have it tuned
with 25 bright and 80 contrast now.

Takes a marginal hit on black levels that way but I like the overall
look better.
