HP ZR2740w 27-inch Computer Monitor Review

The HP ZR2740w is an expensive display that's posh and attractive on the outside, but doesn't deliver the goods.

$729.00

Introduction

The HP ZR2740w is a high-end business monitor. It carries a steep MSRP of $729. With a price like that, we expect three key things: a highly flexible stand, a variety of port options, and above average color/contrast performance.

Unfortunately, we've found that this pricy product doesn't deliver in all three areas. While HP has designed a flexible, intuitive stand and given above average port options, the ZR2740w's color production is considerably worse than much cheaper monitors. For a monitor over $700, we were expecting much stronger results.
