Windows 7: Had to pick up a new Monitor

22 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Had to pick up a new Monitor

So I got up Yesterday morning and my PC monitor was dead. The splash screen came up and that was it. Tried in on other PCs and same thing, splash screen and then nothing.

So I went out and grabbed a new one. I can't be without my PC. I ended up with a HP 25BW IPS LED.

Ive only had it for 24hrs but so far its pretty nice. Much better picture and quality than my old one and I haven't done any calibrations at all. Just good out of the box.
I did change the Color temp to Warm though, as I prefer it. But beyond that nothing.

Very clear and easy to read, and games so far look very good.
No ghosting that I can see just yet, and I was expecting some since it claims to have a 7ms response time.

So far pretty happy with it. Im sure there are better out there, but considering it can be had at under $300 its pretty impressive. And still a huge step up from a TN panel, at least to my eyes.

Anyone else have one of these?

Had one of mine quit, went to this forum: Badcaps Forums - Salvation For Your Hardware! (troubleshooting computer displays) for some helpful information. Got mine up and running again for less than $10.
