HP ZR30w 30-Inch S-IPS LCD Monitor ReviewWhen given the opportunity to review HP's new 30" ZR30w display, we answered 'yes' without hesitation. We didn't need to hear the rest - the fact that this is a ginormous 30-inch display built around a sexy S-IPS panel is all we needed to know. S-IPS, or Super In-Plane Switching, is the Rolls Royce of display panels and almost always offers significantly better color reproduction and far wider viewing angles than the much more common (and cheaper to produce) Twisted Nematic (TN) panels. S-IPS displays also tend to tap deeper into your gold reserve than TN-based monitors, and when you're talking about 30 inches of screen real estate, things can get expensive awfully quick. Or at least that used to be the case...

I can't imagine have a monitor this big on my desk. May as well get an LCD TV.

I used to have a 24" Dell LCD back when they were still the cats meow, and it was almost too big on my desk. Even sitting about 4 feet back, I sometimes had to scan the entire LCD to see everything.

Very nice screen though.

Asus G73JH-A1

Core i7 720QM

Mobility Radeon 5870 1GBVRAM

8GB Ram

1 X OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD

1 X 500GB HDD

17.3FHD (1080P) Panel

Sounds like a very nice display. Also it is nice to see them list the typical contrast ratio, as it is very hard to find that spec on any monitors now a days.

@Chainzsaw

I still have an old 24" Dell :-P It is pretty big... but still not big enough... even at 2ft away lol!

Also I need something with HDCP. This one does not support it. It's kind of old :-(

This is a nice price for a 30" monitor and while the price seems good. My computer can't produce the fabled resolution of 2500x1600, maybe when I get a new computer then I can get this monitor and experience the glorious resolution that only certain computers can handle.

I'll wait for the ridonkulously high price of these screens to come down.

I just can't justify spending so much on such a "small" screen.

Well this is a computer monitor and not some fancy HDTV that you hang on your wall. The price justifies the resolution these babies can push.

This is the big brother of my monitors (the ZR24w) and though I thought about it for all of a minute, I noticed I could get three of the 24" version for less than a single 30".  Guess which way I went...

Now that'd be absurd. You better have $18,000 ready to blow and eyes near the sides of your head.

It is a nice looking screen, and three would be way overkill too. (But there is a pic on the website of three in an EyeFinity setup)

These screen's quality probably isn't as good as the HP ZR30w is that started this thread is either.

My wife didn't understand when I told her that we have to sell her car so I can buy some screens,...............sigh,........

I don't have eyes at the side of my head, but my wife says I have three hands,.......

The field of view with just one of them looks pretty cool to me. Because it's just one screen, you can run it with a 'not so wazoo' computer too. The system requirements aren't so steep.

3 of the HP ZR30w screens would require a truly pissed-off setup to run properly.

My quote about three of them together was just a stab at ridiculousness.

Film at three,.......

Hopefully this is the begining of companies trying to tap into the Apple high dynamic displays-market!

This one is nice, I would just like to see the price come down!  My ratio for monitor pricing has always been targeted at ten dollars and Inch! This is just to much.  Maybe if it was a 130" monitor?

No, it's the one you have to sell a limb to pay for the darn thing.... the child is for their new 12 core system lol

I know, their pricing system can get very confusing sometimes... asking for so many different organs and items you'd rather not part with lol

You better have $18,000 ready to blow and eyes near the sides of your head

I don't have eyes at the side of my head, but my wife says I have three hands,.......

The field of view with just one of them looks pretty cool to me. Because it's just one screen, you can run it with a 'not so wazoo' computer too. The system requirements aren't so steep.

3 of the HP ZR30w screens would require a truly pissed-off setup to run properly.

My quote about three of them together was just a stab at ridiculousness.

Film at three,.......

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

Hopefully this is the begining of companies trying to tap into the Apple high dynamic displays-market!

This one is nice, I would just like to see the price come down!  My ratio for monitor pricing has always been targeted at ten dollars and Inch! This is just to much.  Maybe if it was a 130" monitor?

No, it's the one you have to sell a limb to pay for the darn thing.... the child is for their new 12 core system lol

I know, their pricing system can get very confusing sometimes... asking for so many different organs and items you'd rather not part with lol
