HP LP2475w 24 Inch IPS Full HD Monitor
The HP LP2475W comes in an attractive black design, with a nice thin bezel and matte finish to the screen surrounds. The panel is also of the traditional matte Anti-Reflective (AR) finish, as opposed to any glossy screen coating. The stand is finished in a silver colour, and offers a large rectangular footprint on the desk. Some people may find the stand a little bulky and unattractive, and in my opinion it was perhaps a little too large. It did however offer a very sturdy base for the screen and all in all, the LP2475W looked professional sat on the desk.
The screen features a small unobtrusive HP logo at the top in the centre, and the OSD operational buttons are situated in the lower right hand corner. These are tucked nicely out of the way and are flush against the bezel. The power LED glows a bright green colour when the screen is turned on, and glows amber when in standby. I felt the power LED was a little overly bright in fact, and was a bit distracting in practice. The OSD does feature an option to disable this however should you find the same thing.
The screen offers an impressive array of ergonomic adjustments. There is a decent tilt range (as shown above), along with a large height adjustment range, 90 degree pivot and full landscape / portrait rotation (all shown below). All these mechanisms are very smooth to operate and the screen feels sturdy and well supported no matter how you adjust it.
Materials are all of a very high standard and the build quality feels excellent. It’s a professional looking piece of kit in my opinion, and would look particularly good wall or arm mounted I think. The screen features an integrated power supply, so no need for any external bricks here. There is no noise or buzzing detectable, and the screen gives off minimal heat, even after long hours of use.
The LP2475W features an integrated 6 port USB hub, with 2 located for easy access on the left hand side of the screen, and the other 4 located next to the wide range of interface options. The back of the screen shows you the interface options available, with DisplayPort, HDMI, 2x DVI, S-video, Composite, component and the USB ports being visible in the above image. The screen is oddly lacking a D-sub VGA interface, but a DVI > VGA cable is supplied for those who need it. It might have been nice for HP to include VGA for connection of some devices and for some older Graphics card support.
