Gamers will be drawn to the LP solely for the reason that there is only a handful inch monitors on the market with a response rate this good 6ms with colors this rich. Features and Design As you can expect from a monitor designed for creative types and for use with important applications, the LP has some impressive stats.
It is not without its caveats, however. Because the LP lacks a video processor, you will not be able adjust the color and more advanced settings of this monitor using the menu system; only the brightness controls are available.
In case you were wondering, the LP uses an LG. Philips panel — one of our favorites. This beast is even height adjustable, with five inches of playing room should you desire to adjust it. The popular Dell UltraSharp WFP inch monitor is more stylish and does feature an integrated 9-in-1 media card slot, but it also has a slower response rate at 12ms compared to 6ms in the LP HP backs the LP with an impressive three-year parts, labor, and on-site warranty, which includes hour, toll-free tech support and comes with all of the cables you need to get the system up and running, a quick setup guide, and drivers.
Image Courtesy of HP Setup and Use Before you decide to purchase this monitor, understand that you will need a videocard that features dual-link DVI output if you want to take advantage of the x resolution. Once we plugged in the LP, we were ready to get started. We noticed that occasionally upon boot-up, when the system is posting, the font and text get very blurry, to the point where you think the monitor is not connected to the system correctly.
But once the Windows Login prompt shows up, everything is back to normal. Text and icons proved to be easy on the eyes, and very sharp-looking. In our game tests with World of Warcraft and F. Keep in mind that you will not likely be playing most games at this resolution, and even the most powerful graphics cards on the market will have trouble outputting consistently fast frame rates — at least for now. Images used in Photoshop CS were true to form with accurate color reproduction.
When compared side-by-side with the HP Lw , we found the colors to be a tad washed out. We noticed only minimal light bleeding on the right side of the monitor. Chances are that you may experience this sort of bleeding in different areas of the same model; and this is common in most monitors.
Our review unit also came with zero dead pixels. And since we did not have an HD drive to test this with, we will have to update the article later once we can. In any event, this seems to be an issue with the videocard and not this monitor. If you have some information regarding this issue, please post in our forums so others can hear about your experience. Colors again looked very rich, and black levels were acceptable.
A lot of what you will see with the LP will differ from our review, though, because color levels, etc. Gamers will find the LP to be up to par with their gaming needs, while those looking for a good monitor for video or graphic design will be pleased with the accurate color reproduction the LP puts out. Always keep in mind that the LP does not have its own video processor, so you will be relying heavily on your videocard for tweaking the picture to your liking.
The Samsung SyncMaster T also boasts a 6ms response rate, contrast ratio, and similar specs to the HP LP, but we have not had a chance to review it yet, so we cannot recommend it one way or another at this point either although it is a couple hundred dollars less.
In any case, you should be very pleased with the LP

Obviously Dell appeared on the scene, making 30in displays far more affordable and adding better screen adjustment into the bargain. While the superb Samsung T offered outstanding image quality and colour accuracy out of the box. The HP LP provides another option for anyone looking for a 30in display, but how does it fare against the competition? Every other 30in screen on the market right now offers a single dual-link connection, allowing only a single PC to be hooked up. I accept that not everyone has more than one computer that needs connecting to a screen, but if you happen to have a desktop PC and say, an Apple MacBook Pro with a dual-link DVI output, you could have both devices hooked up to the LP simultaneously and flick between them at will. In fact, a screen like the LP would be an absolute godsend to have in the TrustedReviews lab, since it would allow us to hook up three different test rigs simultaneously.
