The w1907 the nicest monitor you can get for under two hundred. My HP came with one of these and i just ordered another one for dual flat panels. Some Things to consider:
definition: i give it a 8.5 to 9 out of 10. It has 1440x900 res. It can show up to 70 frames per second, again nearly the best you can get. This monitor has better picture resolution than nearly every flat panel TV under 40 inches or so.
color: 10 out of 10. Bright beautiful and accurate color with just a little fiddling with the settings,
Adjustments: 7.5 out of 10. It has mounts on the back for a wall mounted panel, viewing angle is nearly 180 degrees, no glare from the coating. The only thing I didn't like was a lack of height adjustment. You can tilt it, but you can't move the panel up and down.
Sound: 2 out of 10. This is the only thing you can complain about with this monitor. The speakers are the worst sounding I've heard. But most wouldn't use the built in speakers and therefore wouldn't care. They sound like headphones. Like I said, a fact of little importance as the monitors job is video, not sound.
Connectivity: 9 out of 10. It has standard VGA for nearly every computer built since I've been alive. It also has DVI, a signal that is able to relay true high definition picture. It's kind of like HDMI, but it only carries video signals, no audio.
Style: 10 out of 10. Gloss black on faux-brushed aluminum. Keep the black plastic clean as it tends to get smudges on it easily. Understated, clean. It's engergy star compliant, if that matters to you.
They also make a w2007, a 20 incher with 100 or so more lines of resolution. I've seen them side by side and there's not much difference. They make a w2207, which is visibly larger and clearer, has HDMI jack and has full 2500x1440 resolution. Its enormous and has two USB ports on the side. Finally the w2407, big enough to crush an office desk. At somewhere around 4 to 5 hundred, its functionality is eclipsed by its price tag.
If you can get an extended warranty, do it!!!! They do have a tendency to get dead pixels. HP support won't part with a new one under warranty without some tough talk. I'm told in the neighborhood of one in 200 will get one within a year. Don't be the one out of 200. Use the money you'd save getting the 1907 and buy the warranty.
I've had this monitor for just about one year now and I'm adding another one for more "work" space. It's wonderful and for under 200 bucks, they're price is just right.
If you're in the market for a widescreen flat panel display, be sure and give the HP Pavilion W1907 a look. If you haven't used a TFT LCD display, you'll likely be surprised at the vivid colors and high contrast. Whether you need it for office applications or gaming, the HD quality video display produced by this monitor is excellent. And it's an excellent value when compared feature for feature with the competition.
First and foremost, if you can get this monitor cheap, say for $150 or less, then don't hesitate to buy it. Any price higher, you might consider options. Connectivity and the built in speakers were not a choice for me when I purchase this monitor. I needed an auxiliary monitor when editing photos so it was not to be a main monitor. However, out of the box, the monitor NEEDS calibration. Colors are off, which is to be expected from a consumer grade monitor. However, the 2408h series monitors have an incredible color gamut that I was hoping to find in the 1907h monitors. But these two monitors are vastly different. If color gamut is not an issue, then this monitor provides a good resolution (although it could be better), crisp display properties, and bright backlighting. Speakers sound like laptop speakers and are nothing to be impressed by, unless you really want to save space on the desk. Oh, and the stand that comes with the monitor is not even close to what the higher end monitors can do. No swivel, no height adjustment, no portrait mode, just a tilt, that's it. I could probably find better 19" monitors from other brands and mix it with my hp main monitor. But I don't like the Frankenstein look on a desktop. The clean and sexy look of the hp monitors does well for me.
The monitor has a gloss to the screen. I like black outer casing gives the monitor a richer look. Its a 19 inch wide screen, which is better than the standard screens. I would buy another one.
Pros: good picture, glossy, affordable
Cons: flimsy and limited usefullness of stand, 1 year warranty, ymmv quality, no DVI cable
Summary: I had it for a week. The glossy screen and frame are nice. The picture clear and color are accurate and vivid. Backlight bleeding or leaking is minimal and barely noticeable with black background. Good value for the money
What I really don't like is the stand design. The base has some small soft fabric cushions underneath that makes the whole monitor less stable than it should. Also, due to manufacturing defect, the monitor might not be perfectly horizontal and you can't do anything about it since the stand only lets you tilt the panel.
Also, the HP only backs this product with a 1-year warranty while other companies give 3 years. This might say something about the quality over the long run.
In fact, the first one I got was very bad: the backlight bleeding was horrible, color reproduction was non-uniform and the control buttons felt like they were going to fall off by any minute. I returned it and got a new one that is far better in all aspects.
