The Bottom Line The HP ZR2740w sacrifices customization to deliver a powerful monitor at a reasonable price. The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is an excellent monitor that will satisfy both the performance snob and the features diva alike. The Asus PA248Q is a low-priced IPS monitor that doesn't skimp on performance or features. The HP DreamColor LP2480zx is a performance monster that costs too much for the features it offers. Well-priced and powerful, the Asus PB278Q is the best entry point for those seeking an extreme-definition monitor at a not-so-extreme price.
