Video Level (overdrive) Settings Compared:

The HP er and es monitors overdrive (Video Level 0, 1, 2, 3) is preset to 0 which is a shame since Video Level 2 offers significantly faster pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting. The 25er and 25es's pixel response times are pretty much the same as the 25-27 CW/XW monitors from 2015. Video Level 2 provides slightly faster pixel response times than the CW/XW's best overdrive setting (Video Overdrive On), but slightly more overshoot ghosting while Level 1 is pretty much the same. Video Level 3 is useless since makes the monitors suffer from very obvious overshoot ghosting.

The er and es monitors pixel response times can compete with TN panels set to 60hz, and are superior compared to the many 60hz TN panels which suffer from obvious overshoot ghosting or slower pixel response times with their overdrive setting lowered or set to off. For example, the HP monitors overdrive is more balanced than the Asus MG248Q (Trace Free 20) and BenQ XL2420G's (AMA Off) best 60hz overdrive settings since both suffer from obvious overshoot ghosting (default overdrive settings) or more obvious color streaking compared to the majority of modern AHVA/IPS/PLS panels I reviewed.
