Last month I bemoaned the fact that although the 27-inch HP 2709m has less features and a lower resolution than the 25-inch HP w2558hc (albeit with a larger screen), at the time, it actually cost $70 more.

Since then, HP has curiously stopped selling the w2558hc directly, but the monitor is still available at Amazon and other e-tailers. Also, the $500 suggested retail price for the 2709m was a bit overestimated since HP actually sells it for $425 and it can be found for as low as $360 from other online retailers.

I'm still waiting to hear back from HP on whether it'll continue to sell the w25558hc. It would be a shame if they aren't selling it, as pound for pound, it's one of the best values out there. Anyway, here are some brand new shots of the 2709m. Also, keep checking here for new monitor reviews every week. Enjoy.
