    HP, one of the leading manufacturers for desktops and notebooks, is preparing their new w2408 24-inch LCD display. The monitor is HDCP compliant with a 92% wide color gamut and 160 degrees vertical and horizontal viewing angles. HP also equips the w2408 with rotational capabilities and includes software that automatically adjusts the screen orientation as the display is rotated. Like most other 24-inch monitors, the HP w2408 features a 16:10 aspect ratio with a 1920x1200 native resolution at 60Hz. The display features a 400 nits brightness rating, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a response time of 5ms.

    More information can be found here.

    I highly doubt that. Noticed the 160° viewing angle? Very probable that it's a TN+Film panel and not a S-PVA or even S-IPS panel which offer better viewing angles and colors. But yes, they cost a few bucks more than the TN+Film ones.

    Every experience I've had with hp has been a bad one. Hopefully the reviews are as good as the looks.
