The new HP ZR30w features 4.1 million pixels and touts a resolution of 2560 x 1600 in a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
The monitor is equipped with DisplayPort and DVI-D inputs, an integrated 4-port USB hub and an HP Quick Release for out-of-the-box set up. The HP ZR30w has a 6-way adjustable stand that provides tilt, swivel, and height adaptability.
