HP Introduces Z-series Monitors with IPS Panels

In conjunction with SIGGRAPH 2013 in Anaheim, CA, HP introduced new professional monitors that carry the same Z-series branding as their workstations. These monitors are all built with that HP calls IPS Gen 2 panels (other manufacturers call it AH-IPS) for better power efficiency (HP says nearly 26%) over their earlier IPS panels while retaining the better color response over TN Film panels. The HP Z22i and Z23i offer 95% sRGB color space coverage, while the Z24i offers 99% sRGB coverage.The monitors are designed for users who need better color accuracy, and are designed and tested to go with the HP Z-series workstations.

The bases on all three monitors are adjustable for height, tilt, swivel and pivot to the portrait position. They also feature EPEAT Gold Certification and are TCO Edge Certified.

    Very nice! 60Hz IPS junkies will sweep these off the shelves in a heartbeat.

    The price has to be right. For non-Korean ones, they are not.

    Nothing to write home about. Just more generic 21.5"-24" 1080p IPS panels. If they were 4K panels at this size range then I'd be excited (seeing as how displays outside the 21.5"-27" size range get the high PPI treatment).

    It is hard to get excited about 1200p for $400 when when I already have a 1080p IPS for $160. (From a Dell UltraSharp 2212 sale early this year.)

    Wake me up when 1600p becomes available under $250 on a 24" screen.

    Wake me up when 4K displays at 30 inches or bigger hit for under $1500. So I can upgrade my 3 yr old 2560 x 1600 ips display...These cheap little 1080p versions are just a waste and too small.

    This display sucks!! If it had been 4k, and cost $2.99 with unicorns shooting out, it would have been competitive. Such a shame...

    Seriously, people, read your own comments. They sound like that.

    You better be prepared to go into a deep space hypersleep then, because it's going to be a VERY long wait. It sure won't be within the next three years, you can bet on that.

    I'm more than happy with my 22" HP S-PVA monitor with 1680x1050 res. What do I need an extra 30 pixels for? My sRGB coverage is also 95% yet doesn't have any of the IPS drawbacks like purplish hue. Plus my vertical screen height is greater than a 23" 16:9, and roughly the same as a 24".
