Looks like a a good deal saw this last time, my question for everyone is, I am replacing a old Dell 2407 monitor ( 24" ) it's been a great monitor but Dell no longer supports drivers for this monitor so I thought I would upgrade to a 27".. People have warned that the picture is not great looking on 27" monitors do to scaling issues and this HP would have the same issue, I have a 980 video card but I weant to make sure like on macs the scale is clean...
I ordered it, and yes wish it had a black frame, I read a few of the reviews so I added in the 4 year warranty for 19.99, it's worht the price if it break and the headache trying to get it replaced / fixed by HP.... As for the Dell yes the 24" is no longer supported for Windows 8 and 10, I have looked and other people saying the samething, great monitor and will end up on my Mac since it doesn't care.
I consider myself an advanced amateur photographer of some skill and I did not want to get anything that could not keep up with my photographic skills as they progress. This display screen is extremely competent in that regard.

Why do you need Dell drivers for a monitor? I have a Dell 19" monitor that's not even 1080p. It' about 8 years old. It runs just fine on Win 10. Windows supplies the drivers for your monitor.
I would suggest trying the 24" monitor on WIn 10 and see what happens. Just use the regular windows driver.
The Dell 24" has built in USB ports and it also shows under win 8 and win 10 as a generic monitor, this wasn't the case for windows 7 which had Dell drivers that work. I have been using the monitor on win 10 for sometime now, but it using the default Generic PnP MS one...
BigWhy said: ordered one for pick up, will see it any better than my 21inch Dell ultrasharp. Dell Ultrasharp may be better quality but I'd pick a decent 27" over a really good 21". Put them side by side and I think you'll agree.
fb89 said: I use visa checkout at best buy but I am being charged $149.99+tax instead of $129.99+tax. Did I miss some steps to get the extra $20 discount? The price for the monitor has gone up from $139.99 to $149.99. I think the Visa Checkout discount at Best Buy was only for a couple of days and you probably missed it. Nevertheless $150 for a 27 inch HP monitor isn't bad.
