Our test HP w1907 came with no software, but HP says My Display, its OSD replacement software, would work on this model. We downloaded and installed it, and found that it credibly replaced the monitor OSD and even added basic screen calibration features.

Scenes from 'Lord of the Rings: Return of the King' revealed richly coloured costumes and excellent background detail. Images were sharp and video was smooth, even in fast action clips. An autumn scene produced satisfying coppers, oranges and yellows. Skin tone on actors was uniformly realistic.

OUR VERDICT

Better-looking than many monitors, the HP w1907 would fare decently at a business, a home office, or at home for personal use, while adding some style to the desktop.
