HP Desktops & AOC Monitors

Have you ever tried using a desktop without a monitor? Go ahead, give it a try! We'll wait.

See how hard that was? That's what using a computer is like for blind people, and they have to do it every day. Well, the ones who own computers do, at least. So be grateful that you're able to take advantage of computers and monitors.

Any love out there for the USB-powered monitor?

It has pretty good reviews. Amazon has it for $20 more, but it's new and comes with a 3 year waranty (instead of 90 days)

Seems like the HP computers might be cheaper on other places (like newegg). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883256746

This is a great monitor; I think I would rather pay $70 more for a new one with a three year warranty, instead of a rebuilt with a 3 month warranty.

Am I the only one who thinks 1080p is too low a resolution for a 27" monitor? I have 25" screens at work that are 1920x1200. I see that as an absolute minimum for a 27" screen. I suppose they can't get Apple Cinema Display resolutions at that price either though. To me with a 27" display at 1080p, you're just not getting the benefit of the screen size.

I've been using a 1080p 27" monitor for years. Looks great to me.

A different on line retailer whose name is the same as a large carnivorous feline has the newer model of this monitor for $269 plus shipping. The newer model is black instead of silver, the base is designed differently, it has a regular 110v computer cord instead of a separate power supply (power supply is built into the monitor), it's "Windows 8 certified", and it has more connectors in the back. Something related to smartphones which I didn't understand. The basic display itself seems to be pretty much the same.

I am trying to figure out why all these new monitors don't have vesa mounts on the back..

I just want to find a cheap 23/24" 1080p IPS monitor w/ VESA mount .. I need 3 of them..

Good luck finding a monitor that will operate on the measly 2.5W that USB2.0 will pump out. Even USB3.0 is only uprated to 4.5W. Even laptop monitors draw more than that.

If only the 19" had DVI or HDMI, then I'd get it.
Having to get a HDMI to VGA converter, makes it not a good deal.

Message to Woot, find one please LED 16"-19" with DVI and/or HDMI?

I agree- that big of a screen should be 1920x1200 (maybe even more).

One important thing to remember with the H-8 1414 if you are going to upgrade the components is the secure boot...

Say wha? I have that 16" USB powered monitor that is (now sold out) in this current deal. I got it in the last woot off. It works perfectly off of a standard USB port on a cheapie best buy bought laptop.

I too have this USB monitor. Not only does it work great off a standard laptop, it weighs almost nothing. My netbook will even drive it.
I just bought a second one (at full retail $20 more) to use in the car trailer when racing. It makes viewing data-logging graphs a ton easier than 3 of us hunched over the laptop screen.
The ONLY downside is lack of a vesa-compatible mount but a little ingenuity and some aluminum angle stock worked wonders for a wall-mount.

Look at the dimensions of the screen. The number of pixels has to correspond to the physical size of the panel. Most of the displays now are being made with a physical size which corresponds to a 16:9 ratio, or 1.778. The display I'm using right now is set to 1920X1080, which is 1.778. The physical size of the screen is 23.5 inches wide by 13.5 inches tall, which is 1.74. Close enough. To make the display 1920X1200, it would have to be 1.5 inches taller. Which it isn't.

Refurb crapfest... I bought the HP Pavilion P6-2427C Desktop, AMD A8-5500 Trinity Quad-Core 3.2GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB SATA, USB 3.0, Radeon HD 7560D, 802.11n, Win 8

I've spent two weeks trying between HP Tech Support and Woot. The computer was bad out of the box and I've wasted two weeks and at least 20 hours trying to make it work. Unfortunatley, when some/several HD sectors are defective, the computer doesn't work well. Woot... you said to work the warranty through HP. HP told me to contact you for replacement/refund. I've sent another message to customer service... help please.

I got the email and responded within an hour... now, nothing from you guys for 2 days. The last word from Woot Customer Service was that you had to coordinate replacement options with the vendor. Is HP that difficult to deal with? What happened to Woot customer service??

Thanks Woot! I got an email from Daniel about status. He's contacted HP and requested a replacement computer "ASAP". Thank-you for the follow-up and for keeping me informed of progress.

This has been a bit of a run-around... although taking a turn for the better, I hope this is not typical.

Okay... nothing since the promise to ask HP to replace the computer "ASAP."
