HP DreamColor LP2480zx - 24in Professional LCD Monitor

 

Are one billion colours enough to make this the ideal CRT replacement?

In the DreamColor LP2480zx, HP has delivered an early candidate for product of the year. Its 30-bit panel and colour space support are unprecedented in this price range, while the ease of use and wealth of options can't be easily faulted. Now all HP...

HP DreamColor LP2480zx review

 

HP's DreamColor is a dream come true for amateur photographers and wannabe directors. But, boy, does it come at a price…

A breakthrough for almost affordable LCDs that should filter down to cheaper panels soon

HP DreamColor LP2480zx review

 

The studio wanted a panel with a wide colour range and good linearity suitable for movie editing as well as stills, and the HP DreamColor LP2480zx is the result - or so we're told.

At almost £2,000, the HP DreamColor LP2480zx isn’t exactly a budget 24in monitor, and HP is taking on some tough competition from Eizo and NEC. The wider gamut and extra features give it a technical edge, but considering that a similarly specced...

HP DreamColor LP2480zx

 

The DreamColor tag on the HP DreamColor LP2480zx - it appears only in marketing, and not on the monitor itself - comes from a collaboration between HP and SKG Dreamworks movie studio.

LP2480zx DreamColor review

 

Born out of a partnership between HP and Dreamworks SKG, the LP2480zx has a lot of professional backing behind it. We see how well it performs.

High performance, wide gamut; tilt, swivel and rotate; robust build, effective OSD, multiple inputs, picture-in-picture

Expensive, stand hardware is slightly wobbly, OS X colour profile isn’t accurate, control software doesn’t support OS X (but isn’t essential)

At almost £2,000, it isn’t exactly a budget 24in monitor, and HP is taking on some tough competition from Eizo and NEC. The wider gamut and extra features give it a technical edge, but considering that a similarly specced professional 30in panel is...

HP DreamColor LP2480zx

 

A monitor for professionals

Superb up-scaling of video, impeccable colours

It's hard to fault this monitor, but it probably could use some more calibration options in its menu system

For colour critical applications, this monitor is ideal. Its colours were vibrant and its black level was perfect.

HP DreamColor LP2480zx review

 

It's difficult to justify buying an electronic device that costs $2,500 or more. The HP DreamColor LP2480zx costs $2,500 if you buy it directly from HP, but you can find it for $2,900-to-$3,000 from other online retailers. At those prices, only...

The HP DreamColor LP2480zx has impeccable color reproduction and includes direct black level control.

The HP DreamColor LP2480zx forgoes direct color and contrast controls and can't compare, featurewise, to its competitors. Its price is a pill that's hard to swallow.

The HP DreamColor LP2480zx is a performance monster that costs too much for the features it offers.

HP LP2480zx

 

HP's LP2480zx is a sight to behold. Now if only we had a spare AU$4,200 kicking around...

Natural, vibrant colours without being garish ; Large array of inputs ; Massive configurability through the OSD

PIP mode not as comprehensive as it could be ; Bundled calibration software has poor multi-monitor support

We have, perhaps, enjoyed this little glimpse into the professional world a little too much. Now if only we didn't have to send it back.

HP DreamColor LP2480zx

 

The DreamColor tag on the HP DreamColor LP2480zx - it appears only in marketing, and not on the monitor itself - comes from a collaboration between HP and SKG Dreamworks movie studio

We're also told that this 24-inch panel displays billions of colours, which may be true, but it's neither useful nor unique. Most high-end panels include 12-bit colour control rather than the HP DreamColor LP2480zx's 10-bit control but your eyes can't...
