[HP] HP 27" IPS LED Monitor $199 tax in FS

$349.99 reg price, down to $289.99 on sale. Apply code 27ER90 at checkout for an additional $90 off. Same price at BestBuy and Staples, but if you combine with the cash back at Ebates (I believe its 15% off right now), essentially paying $200 tax in for a VERY well-reviewed monitor. Model is 27ER or T3M88AA#ABA

I bought this for my parents' house about 2 months ago for ~$200 at Staples. The reviews are over rated. Yes this is a 1080p monitor at 60 Hz and is so-so for gaming, but I wouldn't recommend it if that was your intention.

This monitor killed my eyes. For 4 weeks straight my eyes couldn't get used to the colours and pretty much got burned. I'm pretty sure my eyes got worser because of it. No matter what calibration or configuration I attempted, I just couldn't get the monitors colours and settings to jive with my eyes.

Maybe it's because it was my first time with an IPS panel, but that shouldn't be the reason why my eyes were dying.

There are no speakers. Why would you want crappy sound quality from your monitor, seriously. Use dedicated speakers or a headset.

No speakers. Can't go back to anything smaller after picking this up. Great monitor!

Because watching sports highlights does not require uncrappy sound. I game and do serious listening on my headset or dedicated sound system. I hate having additional speakers on my desktop.

I understand. No this monitor does not have speakers. It is super thin and nice looking though I guess.

I think Windows 10 is more colorfully calibrated than Windows 7. Btw, did you try toning the brightness/contrast down according to your environment?

Yes, I changed the settings multiple times during the day to accommodate the sunlight from outside as well as when it was dark. Multiple times over many days. I even moved the monitor away from windows and at different angles to reduce glare.

Oh well. Some monitor fit some people, others don't.

27" thinkvision that was 299 is a really nice display. This ones not bad, but the xtra 100$ goes a long way for a 2560x1440 monitor

Add another $100, you can get a 4k on sale. I think sub $150+tax is an acceptable rfd spot for an 1080p IPS monitor.
