3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 19, 2011

The HP 2009m is a 20-inch Diagonal 16:9 HD Ready Widescreen Monitor released by HP in 2009 with a $200 price tag. Its a step under the HP 2159m which is 1.5 inches wider and $40 more expensive. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio which makes it deal for viewing movies in their original formats. The display can be optimized for movies, photos, or games with the Quick View mode. It has a 1600x900 maximum resolution, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio (contrast ratio measures the ratio of the luminance of the brightest color (white) of the screen to that of the darkest color on the screen (black) that the system is capable of producing). Glare that has been usually seen on recent glossy screens is reduced in this system using the HP BrightView technology). Both digital and analogue content can be displayed using DVI-D with HDCP and VGA connectivity. Features Monitor type: 20" diagonal Widescreen Thin-film Transistor ... PROS: (1) Good image quality and viewing angles (2) Simple to use and easy to navigate on screen settings (3) Offers both swivel and tilt adjustments (4) Easy to setup, plug and play ... CONS: (1) Lack HDMI connection (2) More expensive compared to similar offerings (3) Poor HP consumer products customer support

Best Monitor I've Purchased
5 Star Review   By Orval on HP - Jul 2, 2010   

I really love my new HP 2009m monitor. It takes up less pace on my desk, and it's light weight, and easy to move around when I need to. It has the best color, and brightness than any other monitor I've seen. Thank HP Good Job.

Can't be adjusted
2 Star Review   By scribe on HP - Jul 2, 2010   

Returned monitor, because I planned on connecting it to a docking station. Docking Station was useless. As for the monitor, couldn't adjust it to a comfortable height. It pivots but can't be raise, so the only way I could get it to a proper height on my desk was to place two books under it.

I use this monitor every day at work and love it. My coworkers are jealous of the brilliant colors and phenomenal resolution. When you have a monitor that reproduces everything so well, not much else matters.

Excellent Monitor
5 Star Review   By Kaysey on HP - Jun 12, 2010

5 Star Review   By Moosh on HP - Jun 12, 2010   

I love this monitor, i own two of them and never regret either purchase. The picture is great, and the resolution is great. My only dislike is the speakers in it are not real good. If you like listening to music, go buy some nice speakers. Its not a big deal that they are not good, all the rest of the good feature make it seem fine! :D I would recommend this monitor to anyone.

4 Star Review   By BACracer on HP - May 24, 2010   

I really like this Monitor, but it has a problem. When I used the DVI cable, the monitor goes into 'Sleep Mode', and nothing will bring it out of it, except for rebooting. HP does know about the problem, but they have No fix for it, as of yet.. So , I'm using the VGA cable, and it's working good, But I will return this product tomorrow.

HP 2009 m 20" Monitor Widescreen LCD
5 Star Review   By treecutter on HP - Apr 23, 2010   

This is a bright & colorful monitor. I'm looking for many years of service from a high quality product. Thanks HP for building this fine product. I am 51 yrs. old & having this larger monitor with the bright quality, has improved my ability to see the fine print & a list of all hard to see things on the internet. The movie's are a huge improvment with color never before seen. I am extremely happy with my monitor.

What an upgrade
5 Star Review   By rmick56 on HP - Apr 23, 2010   

I'd purchased an older monitor some years ago and when I went to the store I had been looking for a competitor's unit. But looking at the 2009m, the unit and it's cost, I chose your device. I haven't been disappointed at all since.

I've had 2 of these die on me in less than a year.
1 Star Review   By hpunhappycustomer on HP - Mar 16, 2010   

Bought this monitor end of April of 2009, in Dec of 2009 the screen flickered and went black. I used a friends old monitor for a bit and HP sent me out a new one to replace that one. I've had it hooked up for less than a month and it died too. Don't know if I am just getting defective devices or what just not my luck. When it was working it had a very clear picture but not very good sound. I have a brand new computer so I know its not because its not compatible.

Awesome picture
5 Star Review   By HPproductsaregreat on HP - Mar 9, 2010   

I bought my monitor at Best Buy, their 2 year warranty was over $100. I then went home and looked on the HP website and found the monitor about $10 cheaper and they have a 4 year overnight exchange warranty (regardless of where you bought the monitor) for about $60! I read the reviews and decided that I really needed to get a warranty. What a great product! No problems so far, I've only had it 2 months though. I love the clarity and depth of colors. I watched a Blu-Ray on it and it is clearer than my Phillips HD tv. It does have a loose power cord connection, so be careful when moving the monitor, but if it comes out just plug it back in and no harm done. My cat walks behind the computer desk and so far has not been able to pull the power cord out.

Bought a Compaq 18.5" wide screen at OfficeMax. Returned it because it was so awful. Picked this up at WalMart, and WOW! What an amazing monitor. Beautiful crisp images and text, sound quality is outstanding - and the coolest feature is the "keyboard park" where you can slide your keyboard under the monitor for added desk space! LOVE IT, and love HP!!!

No Sound
1 Star Review   By MVWMB on HP - Feb 13, 2010   

i just bought a whole new HP package and had no sound at all. After verifying all I could, since I bought at Best Buy, I called Geeksquad who tried for a n hour to determine and correct the problem. Then I was cut off and when I reconnected I was told they could not solve. Now I have to take the whole system back to Best buy. Not a happy camper. I had a DELL System for 10 years without one problem from the get go.

Works Great
5 Star Review   By Ray70 on HP - Jan 12, 2010   

When my 12 year old CRT cashed it in, I needed a monitor right away. I would rather have had the 1080p resolution but I live in a small town and this is the highest res I could get on short notice. The 2009 performance is excellent in everything I use it for. The only problem I have is not the fault of the monitor. I haven't been able to find a Windows XP driver for the SIS AG315 video card that will put out the 900 x 1600 resolution. I know the video card will handle it because Linux uses the full 900 x1600. The most recent driver for XP decides that 768 x 1024 is good enough.

Didn't work for me :(
1 Star Review   By Bumblebee on HP - Jan 8, 2010   

I tried hooking it up to my Toshiba laptop, and it would not display at the optimum resolution of 1600 x 900. The best it will go is 1280 X1024, and the display is blurry. I called HP support, and also Toshiba support, they couldn't solve it, and I had to return it. Very disappointed. I thought it was my laptop that is limiting the display, I plug it in to another 23" widescreen monitor that we had, and it works perfectly, and displayed at 2048X 1152. I really like HP product, this just didn't work for me.

Fantastic Monitor
5 Star Review   By Scott59 on HP - Jan 6, 2010   

Just received this monitor this AM. very bright, sharp. Very nice & clean design. The price is right too. CNET rates this as the best 20" LCD monitor today. I bought it thru Amazon and they don't advertise it as a wide screen but it is. Compared to my prior Optiquest 20" wide screen that only lasted 2 yrs, this one is heads & tales far above it. I couldn't be happier. The only slight drawback is the DVI cable supplied is a tad on the short side, but I just used my existing cable. I still give it 5 starts

Great product
5 Star Review   By JohnRM on HP - Jan 1, 2010   

For the money, this a great monitor. I could have spent a heck of lot more and gotten less bang for the buck. The picture quality is amazing. It is easy to use. It is HDCP capable. I can even plug-in a Playstation 3. At the moment, I have both my old and new computer plugged in. A one-push source button lets me switch between the two PCs with ease. You really don't need anything more than this.

power cord issue
5 Star Review   By Semaj on HP - Dec 31, 2009   

This is a wonderful monitor. The color and sound quality are just outstanding. The only issue I am having is that the power cord, that plugs into the monitor, is in such a spot that gravity tends to pull it out of the monitor. If someone knows a good fix besides tape please let me know.

Great monitor but disappointed with sound
4 Star Review   By powerlift83 on HP - Dec 7, 2009   

All in all this is a great monitor. But the sound volumn is awful. To low, I can barely hear online video. Per HP tech support my computer is "to old" to be compatible for the monitor sound. Therefore, if you have an older model computer do not buy this monitor. Had I know, I would have bite the bullet and gone ahead and purchased a package. I love HP products, and will buy another new computer shortly to go along with this monitor. The monitor is 10 stars for sharpness and color is outstanding.

ok but issues
3 Star Review   By edtwo on HP - Nov 28, 2009   

this is an adequate monitor. not fabulous but fine. picture quality is adequate (graphics card issue may contribute to this). real problem for me so far after owning the unit for a few days is that the power cord plugs near the bottom of the monitor and does not plug in securely. if you have a wired keyboard/mouse, sometimes the wires will rub against the power cord and disconnect the monitor. there's a crackling sound when this happens, and it can take a bit of cord jiggling to get the power working again. it's a pretty bad design flaw. considering power cords have been around forever, i'm very surprised that this simple element was overlooked. if you're using a wireless keyboard & mouse, it might not be an issue for you. but considering the frame is designed so you can store your keyboard below the monitor the likelihood you will disconnect the power cord is pretty high. (even moving my monitor on my desk has dislodged the power cord). going to see if the problem is confined to my unit or is universal to the monitor. if it's universal (other people have made the same complaint on the net) i'd recommend you look for a monitor that does not connect the power cord in the same spot.

Too Short and Quiet
3 Star Review   By TNT2000 on HP - Nov 24, 2009   

This new monitor style while looking nice has been the worst monitor I have ever bought. It is not height adjustable, it is wobbly, and the built in speakers are so quiet I have to shut off the household ventilation to hear applications. In my quickness to purchase the computer I also didn't notice the lack of HDMI connection and the inability to really adjust the monitor to a better pixel size. It feels like I am back to using a 15 inch monitor. The widescreen feature is useless unless I am watching a movie. Don't buy this type of monitor.

Very nice
4 Star Review   By imdanield on HP - Oct 25, 2009   

This is a nice monitor, the picture quality is very good and set-up was a breeze. While it probably wouldn't be the top pick for gamers or high end video editing, it's excellent for web-surfing, home office applications, etc. The size is perfect for small & medium sized home offices. The only drawback is that it does not have an HDMI input.

You will be left with a smile and in awe
5 Star Review   By Dale28683 on HP - Oct 18, 2009   

I purchased the first one of these app. 2 months ago not really sure as there was no displays to see setup. I will admit that the price point was the deal closer at the store, but as soon as the unit came to life and got it dialed in and the res set, I was amazed and in awe at the quality of the picture and the detail for the max resolution. I tried DVDs, pictures, everything I had at it and it just kept on putting a smile on my face that became almost permanent. I had intended for it to only be a temp while a much more expensive monitor that I had only for 3 weeks that went south on me and had to be returned for repair that would take app 3 weeks for total turn around and cost 3 times what the 2009m did. I use this in our studio with Pro Tools and after 2 hours of watching this unit beside the other monitor that was still breathing, I took the expensive one out, went out and purchased 3 more of these and now the 2 expensive units are now sitting on our spares shelf collecting dust. My next task is to heck out its big brother for another room. The color is outstanding, ability to reproduce a true deep black is just simply unreal and I find it second to none for our use. This is one of those truly rare examples that the best does not have to cost 2 or 3 times more. HP has hit a home run on this unit in every detail for us. Also, the real glass screen is just wonderful and I found myself turning the brightness down, something we never did with the other units here and found them left wanting for more if anything. With all this quality were it truly counts, HP even took the time to make sure that these units also look great on the outside and not just a hunk of cheap plastic, the mirror black finish is just fantastic. Quality from the front all the way to the back and everything in the middle, now that can be very hard to find these days. Keep up the great work HP, looking forward the 23" to arrive next week.

HP 2009m - WOW!!
5 Star Review   By JohnB809 on HP - Sep 7, 2009   

I have had a CRT monitor that just would not DIE...:). It is a good monitor but I have always wanted a wide screen monitor for the right price. The HP 2009m is that monitor. You will be amazed!!... at the color, and it brings my old Pentium IV out of the BOX view...It's like having a new computer. Thanks HP... JohnB

amazing!
5 Star Review   By bluemoongirl on HP - Sep 4, 2009   

I am so happy with this monitor. I recently had a more expensive different brand monitor that was a disaster, and I returned it. This HP is outstanding, and a steal for the price. Perfect size for a desktop, and I am amazed at how sharp photos look on it. I do lots of photos and vids and the colors and crispness are the best of any monitors I looked at, and I looked at them all! Very pleased with the speaker sound also. This monitor rocks.

Best LCD Monitors on the Market
5 Star Review   By Worland on HP - Aug 25, 2009   

Outstanding! This is the only line of LCD monitors I've found that can truly reproduce black. The black is deep & dark with no hint of light creeping through the diffuser. Colors are vibrant and rich. Utilizing the digital line from my Nvidia video card, the clarity and detail of video games is significantly better than the previous generation of HP monitors. Streaks, flares and blooms from moving objects on the screen are a thing of the past. The only down side is the speakers. They're not as loud as my older HP monitors and have almost no bass reproduction at all. It's a good sized monitor... fairly wide and almost as tall as a standard ratio 19 inch LCD.

This monitor is great for the price!
5 Star Review   By edgr on HP - Aug 22, 2009   

I bought this monitor after I had purchased and returned a more expensive 20" monitor that I was disappointed with. The color and contrast are far better and this one has speakers. Everything is included; VGA cable, DVI-D cable and a speaker cable. Paid nothing for the shipping and it arrived in 2 days (on a Saturday!!!). HP great work. I'm nothing but impressed.

HP Monitor 2009M
5 Star Review   By Joseph on HP - Aug 21, 2009   

This monitor is one of the best monitors I have ever used. Its very clear and very easy on the eyes. No comparison to other monitors. I would definately recommend this monitor to friends and business associates that I come in contact with. HP products are the best.

HP Monitor 2009m
3 Star Review   By rh13 on HP - Aug 17, 2009   

A good monitor and the setup was easy, but it did not come with the digital cable needed to connect it to a digital video card. Furthermore, I have not found on the HP web site any information on the digital cable and I have been unable to find in the specs what kind of digital cable to order.

This Monitor rocks, seriously rocks
5 Star Review   By MoonLynx on HP - Jul 3, 2009   

I just bought this monitor, brought it home and connected it to my ATI Radeon 9250 card via DVI. The images and the colors simply leaped off the screen.Nice crisp, sharp images and the speakers are great to boot. If you buy this, you *will not* be disappointed. It brings the images on my old Celeron 1Ghz. PC to life. Be well!

Simply the best monitor
5 Star Review   By Striker on HP - Jun 28, 2009   

This monitor is incredible. I've had it for a few months now, and I can say with absolute certainty that it's WONDERFUL. I haven't had any issues, and it goes above and beyond my expectations. If you're thinking about purchasing this monitor, I recommend you do so. You will not be disappointed.

OMG Where have I been?!
5 Star Review   By CherryPearl23 on HP - Jun 18, 2009   

This is a birthday gift from my daughter. She gave me the choice of selecting any monitor I wanted. I had my mind made up about another competitor's monitor until I went into our local office supply store and saw this. This monitor blew the others away (including the monitor I originally wanted). HP 2009m showed crisp text and vivid graphics. The other monitors, I noticed some bled in the text and graphics that weren't so bright. And let's not mention styling. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the appearance of this monitor and the stability of the stand. In fact, I am not the only one who loves this monitor, now my daughter is ready to replace her year old 19in LCD monitor with the HP 22 inch LCD. I highly recommend this monitor or HP 22 inch LCD monitor for anyone looking to buy. If you don't want to take my advice, visit your local retail/office supply store(s) and see for yourself.

Great monitor but not standard size screen
4 Star Review   By aprimo on HP - Jun 11, 2009   

I bought this monitor to pair with an older HP monitor at my office, so I could have a dual monitor setup. This monitor is slightly wider and shorter than my older HP L2045w and I could not find any privacy filter that fits it.

hp 2009m
5 Star Review   By ggqui on HP - Jun 4, 2009   

this monitor is truly incredible in terms of image quality. trust me, i went thru days and days of research reading reviews and comparisons. this one really stands out. the only real drawback i have for it though is the sound quality. not loud enough especially when your watching movies on dvd. thats the only reason i gave "performance" a 4star. but that can easily be fix by having external speakers.

Good Purchase
5 Star Review   By So Far So Good on Buydig.com - May 6, 2009   

Strengths: Very simple to install. Clean design. I do photography and need a screen w/o strong glare protection. It reduces the clarity. Take the time to go through all the personal choices for view quality.

Weakness: If you are not familiar with how to customize the performance.....take the time.....it is well worth it!

I had a very good Xerox monitor, but it crashed after years of use. This is a wonderful replacement with even better quality. Anyone doing photography will enjoy the clarity.

Better than I hoped !!!
5 Star Review   By dlbark313 on HP - Apr 24, 2009   

Simply the best monitor I have ever purchased. Sharp image, energy efficient and brilliant color. If your looking for an upgrade from an analog LCD or CRT monitor, this is the monitor to get. I'm now using my cpu to watch TV and DVD's in widescreen splendor.

Great monitor for a great price
5 Star Review   By JJSAUCE on HP - Apr 20, 2009   

Purchased this monitor about a week ago. Very impressed. i shopped around for about a month and found other monitors with the same features for about $50-$100 more. The built in speakers are nice addition, great resolution for the price (i just wish my video card could run that high.) Great monitor.
