Pros: One of HP's best. The 2159m stands out above the rest based on image quality, brightness, contrast, clarity, sharpness, and style. Great Monitor
Cons: Like with other HP monitors some might find that the glossy finish makes for harder viewing under direct sunlight
Summary: I recently decided to buy a second monitor to go along with my HP w1707 and I was also trying to decide between the w2207h and the 2159m. I shopped ...
Summary: I recently decided to buy a second monitor to go along with my HP w1707 and I was also trying to decide between the w2207h and the 2159m. I shopped around for a while at various local stores and this one was by far the best in its class for overall value and quality. I've had the monitor for about a week and it looks great especially when using the HDMI input. I've got both the 2159m and a hp w1707 hooked up to my laptop and the 2159m worked right out of the box with very little image calibration required. A few weeks ago newegg had a special on the w2207h and after reading all the reviews I almost bought it, but it was defiantly worth waiting to see in person and I think a lot of people are going to have buyers remorse when they see the 2159m. Both are very good monitors but between the two the 2159m is hands down superior to the w2207h, especially considering that I was able to get it from Brandsmart for $210.00 ($40.00 less than the w2207h).
One of the best monitors that HP has come out with yet.

Fantastic! This monitor surpassed all my expectations.

Pros: Brightness and contrast are incredible, sharpness and details I never saw, yet very smooth rendering and action.
Cons: My only quirk with this monitor is the bright aqua blue power button, I think I darker, deeper blue would have been more appropiate.

Summary: I hooked this monitor up out of the box, using the DVI input, without even using the installation CD, changed my resolution to recommended 1920 by 1080 at 60Hz and presto, the most incredible picture I've seen on a monitor. The color setting by default, was at the 6800K and the brightness and contrast are at 80% and the picture is astounding.
I had read the PCMag review after I had ordered it from HPshopping.com for $189, and was disappointed to read the poor performance. But, after seeing it for myself I can honestly say, I don't know if the guy at PCMag had the same monitor as me. The PC guy said the monitor had poor grayscale performance and I could see what he was saying about the blacks & whites being hard to distinguish towards the end of the spectrum, but when I angled the monitor differently the grayscale got much better (LCDs are notorious for getting darker as you angle the top away from you). I don't do a lot of RAW photo editing but I do dabble in photography and this monitor is beautifully suited for most video editing, even with shadows and overexposures. Another complaint was that the monitor had no USB ports like another monitor he had tested. Geez, if it's a USB hub you want, go get one for $15 from Wally World.
THEN, I hooked up the HDMI cable from my SONY HDR-SR11, Oh my goodness!,...let's just say that I spent too much time pouring over family videos I have seen many times, just too see this monitor do HD video justice. There was no visibly perceptible pixelation or blurring of even the fastest of movements across the screen. Technology amazes me and I am just giddy over this new purchase.
My last monitor was a Veiwsonic and I was pleased with it but this monitor has made it hard to leave the computer. I just love to see it. The text, the colors, the sharpness of detail, etc.
The shiny surface doesn't give me any glare problems because it sits back nicely in my rolldesk protected from most reflections in the room. But I would imagine if you had a window behind you, it could be an annoyance.
I work for a company that gives discounts for HP products and that is why I purchased this monitor, the good deal! But I have stumbled onto one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. HP printers have always been my favorite but I stayed away from other HP products because of my dealings with HP computers (upgrading was a nightmare and all the useless programs they install) but that was a long time ago and I must admit that HP is doing other things right. This monitor has got to be the best deal in monitors.
Fantastic monitor for great price!!

Pros: Awesome design. HP has continued to master the look and feel of their products. Outstanding picture and color quality. High-definition capable. Already assembled, just plug it in. Unbelievably low price for this quality and size monitor.
Cons: Has great tilt and rotate features, but less of an up-down adjustment than my past HP flat-panel. While I could put something under it, I simply lower my office chair an inch or two.
Summary: This is by far the best computer monitor I've owned. While I am not a hardcore gamer, I do Web design and Flash production, so I need a quality ...
Summary: This is by far the best computer monitor I've owned. While I am not a hardcore gamer, I do Web design and Flash production, so I need a quality monitor. The colors are rich and deep and, combined with a decent graphics card (I upgraded that, too) I cannot imagine a better monitor for the price. I bought this at Fry's for $209, but saw it on sale at $199. Even it's full retail price of $239 on HP's site is a great bargain for this high-quality monitor. Better yet, I noticed (*at the time of this typing) that if you're buying an HP desktop or laptop, they drop the monitor price down to $139. I highly recommend the HP 2159m monitor. An outstanding product with an unbeatable price for the quality. I've had it a month and still enjoy walking into my home office and just looking at it. One of the best purchases I've made in years. Thank you HP.
