[HP Shopping] HP 25ES or 25ER 1080p 25" monitor - $169.99 after $30 off promo

HP has the 25" inch monitors on sale for $199.99. They have a $30 off promo code HPDAYS30 that brings the price to $169.99. For ON, total with tax and EHF is around $205.

25ER is also available for same price. AFAIK, only difference between ES and ER is the color of the back side of monitor. ES is black whereas ER is silver. Here is the link to 24ER - http://h20386.www2.hp.com/CanadaStore/M ... BA&sel=MTO

I like the looks of the monitor, its very thin, reviews are good too. Will mostly buy it today, just a little bit held back due to the monitor not having any speakers.

Thought this deal might help someone.

Not sure if its just warm or really good? Comments?

Not a bad price for a 25" 6-bit IPS monitor. Good for people who want something slightly bigger than the usual 23.6" monitors.

Seems like a great monitor, except 14ms GtG response kills it.

According to the specs, it is a 16.7 million colour IPS panel (LED). Would that not equal 8 bits?

That's a pretty good price, I'd go for it.

The colors and contrast are a little faded compared to the more robust MBP screen, but not enough for it to be a complaint for me.

All consumer monitors capable of accepting RGB24 signal are advertised as 16.7 million colors. You'll notice that all the cheap TN monitors advertise 16.7 million colors as well, and they're obviously not 8-bit.
Up to 16.7 million colors supported (through FRC technology)
FRC = 6-bit

Is this a good monitor for gaming? Its 14ms response time seems high.

RPGs are fine, not if you're playing anything remotely competitive.
