All Good!
5 Star Review   By OneExtremeHiker on HP - Apr 24, 2013   

It's large, which is what I measured it to be on my computer desk. The controls are easy to learn. The shinny black finish is beautiful. I like the tree means of connection.

Did not originally plan on buying a monitor, but when I saw the value for the money and compared it to even the "big box" stores, it was too good to pass up. Very happy with performance.

Another awesome monitor from HP
5 Star Review   By socalgal on HP - Mar 14, 2013   

HP keeps getting this right. Last year I purchased 2 HP 2310e monitors. They are awesome. I needed an additional monitor and decided to go with HP again and bought the 2511X. They are similar in every way except the 2511x is a little bigger, is Silver EPEAT instead of Gold like the 2310e, the HP logo in the back is NOT lit and the on/off button is not by touch but rather just underneath the right corner. The screen is glossy and I am aware most people don't like that but for me it makes for a crisper and clearer picture. I did not find the monitor too bright out of the box as some have mentioned and really did not have to adjust it much. All in all another great monitor by HP

HP 2511x 25 in monitor
5 Star Review   By dj0030 on HP - Mar 14, 2013   

Great monitor, awesome picture, great controls to calibrate the picture. The monitor had nice choice of inputs but the HDMI input is really nice. And it came with DVI and VGA cables, which is really nice too. Only thing is it sits very low,(stand does not go up or down, Only tilts) so need to put a book under it to get the monitor up to proper level. But at the price cannot complain.

Very pleased with the monitor and the way it performs. Only problem I had been turning it on, because the control and power buttons are hidden on the bottom right hand side. Even though I know where it is now, it is still hard to turn on or off by feel.

Very nice printer overall.
4 Star Review   By Dakine on HP - Mar 13, 2013   

This printer was easy to setup but I was disappointed that I cannot print a 4x6 borderless photo. The feature is there but it always comes out with a white border except for the sample it prints out when first getting started or updating the driver. Otherwise it is a great printer for the price. This was a gift from my son and his bride-to-be.

5 Star Review   By notabug on HP - Feb 28, 2013   

I'm not a typical review writer, but here goes. The colors jump out at you. They are bright and brilliant. I looked at a couple movies and this monitor is much brighter and colorful than the one that is being replace. The price I paid for this monitor is going to be money well spent. Also, the shipping was faster than promised. I recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a new monitor in this size.

5 Star Review   By Todd on Home Depot - Feb 8, 2013   

awsome size and awsome clarity. A bit pricy, you can find others cheaper, but you get what you pay for. I really like this monitor. Big and bright. Easy set up, I just used an HDMI cable and your done. The only thing is, I thought there were built-in speakers. I havent figured it out yet but I dont think there is. Just because there in no audio input jack. I know you can use an HDMI cable for sound but for those who wouldnt use that, there isnt another means of getting sound into the monitor. So in the end, great monitor but no speakers.

5 Star Review   By toocarpark on HP - Jan 24, 2013   

The only issue I can see with this monitor was, when I was measuring to ensure it would fit into my computer desk, I had to call the 800 number and talk to customer service person, who was very helpful, but in your description the overall dimensions for the height was not noted that it included the stand. In the future the measurements should include the stand for reference. Thank you.

5 Star Review   By DangerousDan on HP - Jan 12, 2013   

These monitors just work; plug them in and they work. No fuss, no hassle. I lock the edges of four of them together on my desk for a stable semicircle configuration. I got a good deal on the dozen I won and I will buy more if I need them.

Big and bright
4 Star Review   By Kenasorus on HP - Dec 29, 2012   

After many years of viewing a 19" display, a 25" is a real treat. I can have several windows open and maneuver around many apps with success. My wife is jealous. It is incredibly sharp and easy to view. The only thing that is a negative is the reflective surface. When light comes into our office and hits the wall behind me, the glare makes the screen nearly unreadable. So the low winter sun can't be enjoyed at certain times of the day. Other that that issue, it is outstanding and a joy to use.

4 Star Review   By RJA2511 on HP - Dec 15, 2012   

This is the second 25" LED Monitor I have purchased from HP within the past two years, which reflects how much I value your product. The new unit is sleeker and more modern looking, but provides the same excellent performance and picture quality. Easy setup too. However, unlike the other unit, (1) this monitor has an "on-off" switch that is both hard to locate and operate easily, and (2) the provided instructions are skimpy and not nearly as helpful.

4 Star Review   By rickprn on HP - Nov 18, 2012   

It is a bit pricey for the monitor. I could have gotten a similar monitor for much less. That being said, The monitor is a good monitor that so far has worked well. It replaces the monitor that is less than a year old that came with my HP computer package purchased at Costco. I was not very impressed with that monitor since it lasted less than a year . Hopefully this one will last longer.

Happy with the monitor
5 Star Review   By FlatPicker on HP - Nov 9, 2012   

I started out with an HP 2310e monitor as my first wide screen monitor. I still have the 2310e and am still happy with it. I did get some damage to the screen on the 2310e after using it for over 1 1/2 years. I also learned how to avoid this. I rubbed out the scratches in the screen on the 2310e, but left an area where some material was missing on surface of the screen. The monitor still looks pretty good and the damage is not very noticeable at all. But I decided that I would get a new monitor and keep the 2310e as a backup. The image quality of the 2310e was very good and I liked the monitor very well, overall. So the first thing I did was to look for another one to buy. I didn't find any, so I concluded that they have been discontinued. After careful shopping, I discovered that the HP 2511 monitors were available and they seemed very popular. I wound up buying one. The 2310e and 2511 look almost identical, except that the 2511 is 2 inches larger diagonally. The only problem I had was that the setup instructions for the 2511 were unclear as to how the controls for the monitor worked. The 2511 and 2310e are almost identical, and the 2310e controls work by touch. There are no buttons on the 2310e-only icons that you touch for all the controls. The instruction sheet for the 2511 has no text on it, only simple illustrations. It looked as though the controls were operated by touch, but they are not. I couldn't get the monitor to turn on, even though I saw that it was getting power because an LED was lit in the back where the power supply plugs in. I set the monitor aside, thinking that it was dead. I started to make arrangements to send it back. The next day I checked it over again very carefully and saw that even though the icons looked like the ones on the 2310e, they do not operate by touch, but instead there are buttons underneath the right corner of the monitor frame that are the controls. The setup instruction sheet didn't show this. I was very relieved to find that the monitor was not dead and I didn't have to send it back. The 2511 seems to be identical to the 2310e as far as quality and overall appearance are concerned. I hardly know I'm using a different monitor now, except for the slight difference in size. Anyway, the quality was good on the 2310e and it's about the same with the 2511. I'd like to mention that I saw one or two reviews where people were saying that the appearance of text wasn't good on this 2511 monitor, and one guy said that he got a headache from reading text on his monitor. The tiny text that I'm typing into this review looks perfect to me. All you have to do is to perform a factory reset on the monitor from the main menu and then go to Image Control and then to Sharpness and then choose "3" for sharpness. Sharpness settings range from "1" thru "5", so "3" is in the middle and is absolutly perfect for text on this monitor. I've put quite a few hours of use on this monitor already and it seems to be working perfectly and the image quality is every bit as good as I need it to be. I also noticed that there was not even one bad pixel on either of my HP monitors. The other 2310e monitor has over 1 1/2 years of everyday use on it and the picture quality is as good as brand new. Anyway, I'm happy with the 2511 monitor. I would recommend it and I would suggest that Hewlett-Packard make the setup instructions a little more clear so people won't think there is something wrong with their monitor.

I am very pleased with the 2511x, Features that could be improved is the stand which is not height adjustable. Also the powerbutton is not easily seen as on the w2207 which also has an excellent stable and height adjustable stand. But this monitor produces superb images sharp and excellent off angle viewing. Except for the stand and the power button I rate this monitor 9 out of 10

This was the first HP monitor I have purchased. I have purchased numerous 23" to 27" LG and Samsung monitors, and I must say I'm very impressed with this monitor, the quality and picture are as good as the others, if not better. It takes a lot to please me when it comes to a decent monitor and this one has done the trick.

I replaced an HP 20" LCD monitor with this monitor. The larger size is welcome, as it opens up spreadsheets and documents and easily allows for side by side pages, which I find useful for work. The colors and resolution are excellent. The white tone is very bright, even with the brightness turned down considerably, unlike the creamy tone of my previous LCD monitor. It takes getting used to.

beautiful display, impressed my son
5 Star Review   By cWhy on HP - Jul 20, 2012   

Had a hard time finding power and other controls (bad setup poster). Once I got it on, it impressed even my son, the architect. Very good display for these old eyes and for his detailed design needs. Very sturdy base and easy to setup connections...

Excellent monitor
5 Star Review   By JeffP on HP - Jul 15, 2012   

Excellent monitor for photoshop use. The colors are vivid and clear. Monitor is nice and bright and easy on the eyes. I sit less than 3 feet from the monitor and it is a perfect size. Bluray movies look great as well. Overall this is an excellent monitor for the price.

easy on the eyes
5 Star Review   By justastatistician on HP - Jun 12, 2012   

* Prior Display was 22". Moving to 25" really a big improvement. Makes is really on my old eyes. * Colors are fine. * Use it for spreadsheets, powerpoints, and emails. Not taxing the video features. But the size really helps when multiple aps are open. I should have gone to 25" years ago. * Set up was really easy. Easier than i had expected. Did not need any need drivers. Really plug and play. * Full disclosure: I am an hp employee.

5 Star Review   By HadoKing on HP - Jun 12, 2012   

Right out of the box, I was blown away. After tweaking the picture for a few min I know this was one of the best monitors I've ever seen. I got this monitor at an amazing discount here using a coupon code I found online. You can't beat this monitor for the price.

screen is much too reflective
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on HP - May 17, 2012   

The screen surface is so reflective that under normal room lighting the monitor turns into a virtual mirror making it extremely difficult and uncomfortable to use.

Stunning displays
5 Star Review   By SpazzMan on HP - Apr 28, 2012   

I bought two of these monitors and I absolutely love them. The display on them is super clear and crisp. They are super thin and very light weight also there very easy to assemble and disassemble it only takes me 10 seconds to take one apart and about 5 seconds to put one together. I completely recommend these monitors for anyone. Thanks: Colter age 21

Overall Excellent buy: Fast delivery Easy setup Great Pictures Main usage: Home office Monitors (no gaming) Had these 2 monitors setup as dual monitors on my laptop for now 2 weeks and very happy with them. Would've liked them even more if they had USB ports but that's just a nice to have. Nice work HP! First HP purchase and will probably come back. Keep up the good work!

5 Star Review   By Gromit on HP - Apr 4, 2012   

Have only had the monitor a week, but it worked great immediately. I connected it to my new pc using DVI and to my old pc using VGA (while I'm transferring data and stuff from old to new). It adjusts immediately to either connection, and the display is perfect. I hope if I get to provide a review 6 months from now, I will still feel the same?

Sweet Monitor
5 Star Review   By robin123 on HP - Mar 21, 2012   

Real happy with the monitor with just a couple nits. Why I'm happy: Good price for a really nice monitor. I was using the laptop monitor and an external 20" monitor to do my software development work. This meant long hours in front of 2 monitors where I often compare 2 screens side by side. This 25in. monitor allows me to do it all on one screen and it fits perfectly in my corner work area. Now my body is positioned better and my chiroprator visits are less ;-) What would be ideal: 1) The monitor doesn't mount as low as I need it. It would be a perfect position if it would adjust down to 1/2 in off the desk. 2) I'd like a little more resolution then 1920x1080. I could cram a little more on my screen. 3) I'd like a faster screen refresh rate then 60hz. My eyes are sensitive to 60hz. 75hz is ideal for me 4) It would be nice to have built in speakers and a camera. Doesn't have to be high quality, just something that allows me to not have to depend on my laptop speakers. I don't want the clutter of external speakers and camera

Very nice upgrade.
4 Star Review   By CaptainRR on HP - Mar 19, 2012   

I had been running a older LCD monitor for some time now and decided to make a upgrade over the past couple. of months. This monitor is bigger than anything I have had in the past and makes for easy reading. I dont do not do heavy gamming due to the fact that I dont have access to broadband internet were I live. I do edit HD video's from my camera and make my Blu-Ray discs once in a whlie. That is the main reason why I got the widescreen to begin with. Been happy with it so far.

Good 25'' Monitor
4 Star Review   By Rickh9t on HP - Mar 4, 2012   

The monitor is pretty good for the price. I love the size, Its resolution is very clear, and I'm happy with it. The only drawback is the reflection I get from the window during the early mornings due to its glossy screen.

Great buy
5 Star Review   By Wama on HP - Mar 2, 2012   

The HP 2511x monitor is an excellent buy. It replaced a Dell 19" LCD monitor and the difference was immediately apparent even before making any monitor adjustments. The picture is brighter, clearer and sharper. I can't comment on how it would compare to IPS monitors costing many times more but for the money the 2511x is hard to beat. If you have to work in a brightly lit environment you should probably look elsewhere because this monitor is very reflective. On the other hand the screen improves contrast and blacks look blacker than screens with anti-glare coatings. Other reviewers have complained about the Dynamic Contrast Ratio feature and recommend turning it off. I received my monitor with this feature turned off by default so I turned it on to see what it was like. I actually like it better. I left the brightness and contrast settings at factory default and found the picture to be more to my liking when the Dynamic Contrast Ratio was turned on. Personal taste I guess. Blu-Ray movies and slide shows look fantastic. I give this monitor 5 stars based on price range, not in comparison to the very best monitors that money can buy. So if you're on a budget like most of us and you won't be using it in a brightly lit room or with a window at your back, this is the monitor to buy.

Nice Monitor !
5 Star Review   By Princeyboy on HP - Feb 27, 2012   

Ordered this monitor on Feb 22nd and glad I did the price that is posted today is increased by 30 dollars. The picture is great the screen size is awesome colors vivid it is pretty light it's an LED so it's thin from front to back it was easy to set up. this monitor is ideal for movie watching, playing games, or just about anything else the screen is big. The buttons are sort of underneath it and towards the bottom right it does'nt take a rocket scientist tho to find and work the buttons, the cords run from the back but not in the middle more further down not a big deal at all, this product is sharp it was also delivered very quick was here in 2 days from the day it was ordered, highly doubt you will be disappointed in this monitor. Happy with it so far plus you should get free standard shipping and it's not hard to assemble, It has an HDMI port in the back too, read into it but i'm sure you can hook up a blu ray player to that. If your looking up to upgrade get this one !!! Thanks.

Bigger is Better
5 Star Review   By Fatz on HP - Feb 16, 2012

5 Star Review   By yoda70 on HP - Feb 6, 2012   

Monitor is awesome. But, setup is something to be desired. HP should show, or say, that to turn on power the button is UNDERNEATH the power symbol. Extremely hard to see. NOT just pointing to the power symbol. Had to call tech support. Ridiculous. And the phone connection is very poor. Have no idea where these people are.

Problems with Apple Powerbook
3 Star Review   By Razorflight on HP - Jan 31, 2012   

Tried to connect this computer via HDMI and couldn't get the resolution that was advertised. The Powerbook thought it was a video screen not a monitor. Downgraded to the DVI connection and there is no driver from HP to get the max resolution. On my third trip to Apple and my third attempt I tried the dongle video display port to VGA and I finally was able to connect and achieve the proper resolution for the monitor. Apple tech support was very good to help me use this HP monitor and HP tech support was not helpful and just said that it's not their problem and didn't suggest using other dongles.

Hate it already!
2 Star Review   By laineyh on HP - Jan 28, 2012   

I've been on computers since 1985. I thought I was smart enough to hook up a system by now. This monitor has overcome every attempt I've made to turn it on. I've had the thing for three weeks and I've spent a lot of my spare time trying to get the monitor to light up. I've been through the troubleshooting guide. It makes such suggestions as: "Can't turn monitor on." "Ensure the monitor is on." NO GOOD. I bought two monitors and I've tried both of them. Neither one will come on. I haven't even tried the computer yet, as I really wanted to get the monitor operational first. Argggggh!

Not for CAD or Photoshop Work
2 Star Review   By BAPCAD on HP - Jan 12, 2012   

The specifications for the monitor are great. The images are very clear however, the screen is so highly reflective it is like looking into a mirror regardless of what the image is on the screen. After looking at the screen for 30 minute my eyes started to hurt. I had to lower the brightness settings significantly to be able to do CAD or Photoshop work. I am going to return the product and replace it with a 24" size monitor with a low reflective screen. Also the base/stand alow only minor tilt and no height adjustment.

Excellent
5 Star Review   By GraysonBass on HP - Jan 9, 2012   

Wow! I went from 2 of the 22" HPs with a native rez of 1650x1080 to 2 of these babies. Wow is all I can say. What a beautiful and sleek product. They look amazing and the picture is exquisite. The only complaint I have is that they were a little expensive and there's no USB hub. I guess that can account for the nice and slim form factor. Other than that, I am impressed! I didn't expect to be this impressed. Now I can finally play my games on the highest rez.

Best 25" Gaming Monitor
5 Star Review   By Rob142 on HP - Jan 1, 2012   

As a happy owner of two other HP monitors (w2408h and w2007), I had concerns about the new 16:9 ratio monitors, as my w2408 has a beautiful sharp picture still, but I wanted a third monitor to expand my X-Plane 10 and DCS A-10 viewing options. I am a hardcore FPS gamer and demand lagless input, exceptional color vibrance and a very sharp picture. After surfing around, I opted for the 2511x. It has everything I hoped for. The whites on this monitor makes the other look sick. Black to white ratio is exceptionally good. No ghosting whatsoever, easy setup. Very attractive decor. Had a hard time getting my EVGA GTX 480's which has DVI I inputs to accept the HDMI signal. It was my fault as I had my other monitor plugged in upon setup. I unplugged other monitor, used my DVI D to HDMI cable and presto! Same setup for other 2408 monitor. BUT!, First I unplugged the 2511x for a minute, shut down computer, restarted and all is well. You will not find a better picture quality anywhere near this price. The screen is excactly as I wanted, glossy, not matte that drowns out the colors. My only reason for for stars underFeatures are two: 1. I wish it had a height adjustment (no big thing) 2. I wish it had touch screen OSD controls (no big thing) No dead pixels, out of the box, I only had to lower the brightness a tad. Thank You HP for such an excellent product (all of them)
