HP W2408 LCD Display not worth your money

ExtremeTech had some quality time with the 24" HP W2408 LCD monitor. This display is priced under $600 and has a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 5ms response time.
Nearly all 24-inch models feature a native resolution of 1920x1200, making them ideal for displaying 1080p hi-def content (1920x1080). It seems that virtually every PC maker and consumer electronics brand offers some kind of 24-inch monitor these days.

Today we're taking a look at the latest from HP. The w2408 is one of the more affordable 24-inch monitors we've tested, selling for an even $600. The glossy-screen style LCD is aesthetically pleasing and has a couple of nifty features we don't see everyday, like 90-degree rotation to portrait view (uncommon in larger widescreen monitors) and an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust the backlight.
You can read the review over here. Overall the reviewer didn't really like this display, it only got a five out of ten. He says the display is relatively cheap but not worth your money as it has poor color tracking and gamma curve and non-uniform backlighting.
