Viewing Angles

DSC_0409 by Deepinthesky Teslastorm, on Flickr

The 24 Envy suffers from the least amount of off axis vertical glow, and has the widest or most forgiving horizontal and vertical viewing angles out of the 24-27" 1080p HP monitors I tested.  The CW, er, es and XW monitors are all pretty much the same viewing angle and glow wise.  32" 4K AHVA panels are the best in terms of minimal off axis glow and wide viewing angles, but all AHVA/IPS/PLS panels look awful when viewed from above or looked down at like one must do with a TN panel.  AHVA/IPS/PLS panels only have wide viewing angles if the top of the display lines up with the top of the viewers head, and are not looked down at or from above.  When set at the correct height all of the HP monitors offer forgiving viewing angles which allow one to lean back or off to the side without seing obvious contrast and color vibrancy loss, and are of course vastly superior to any TN panel when placed at the right height.
