greetings!
i've finally saved enough bucks (well, euros, in my case) for a bigger monitor (i'm still using a good by tiny 15" eizo). i went looking for the 2465, based on several threads here, but in the process found the newer 2475w, eg at http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm ... 48442.html .
the main obvious differences to me are (i) the 2475 is an s-ips, while the 2465 is of course tft, and (ii) the added inputs of the 2475. i cannot find the "number of colors" for the 2475, i hope this is not bad news.
getting to my question: do you know of any reason why i shouldn't spend my hard earned and saved pennies on the 2475? tia!

cheers,
pedro

I would stay away from the 2475 for photo work. Yes it has a wider gamut which is good but it is also 50% brighter than the 2465 and many already find the 2465 too bright which is bad for print matching.

thank you ej for your prompt reply.
but... are you sure? (yes, i apologize for the rashness...)
http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm ... 48442.html (that's the 2475) says 400 nits, while http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm ... 44961.html (2465) says 500. do i have my nits upside down? or do you have different sources?
cheers,
pedro

Interesting, on the US site it says that it is brighter. Here it says it isn't. Who knows? just realize that you would be one of the very first to get this monitor for photo work. It may be great and then again it might not be.

I'm see a claim of 400 cd/m2 for the 2475w on the HP U.S. web site. Only their support section seems to contain any info on this monitor right now, I can't actually find it in the general product sections. If they have indeed dropped the brightness on this new display, that should be helpful.

HP Canada has some info:

I guess I was reacting to the "extra bright" comment:

so i guess the bottom line is, the 2475 has lower brightness than the 2465, which should help with the calibration etc problems experienced with the latter. but "should" is no garantee, and it would be prudent to wait a while.
thanx both for your input!
cheers,
pedro

Hi.

In the Prad.de review of the LP2465 they measured a maximum brightness of 404 cd/sqm, which is far away from the 500 value that the HP specs listed. Their review of the LP2065 also shown a big discrepancy in brightness with HP specs. Not enough data to draw a conclusion on the accuracy of HP specs at that time, but interesting.

I'm also considering both monitors for purchase. The wide gamut of the LP2475w is holding me back.
