I have received 2 HP 25xws Displays with the same green tint issue that cannot be resolved via adjustments, this affects grayscale and skin tones (yellowing). This also seems to affect the 27xw as well.
Myself and multiple members have the March 2016, revision DIM 111 HP 25xws all same issues that's at least known 6 of these monitors ALL the same manufactured date/revision. NCX also updated a review with the 27xw a recent 2016 revision and he comments on the green tint issue that cannot be calibrated out. http://wecravegamestoo.com/forums/monitor-reviews-discussion/15935-hp-27cw-hp-25xw-27xw-review-almos...
Seems a bad batch issue; I hope HP can address and at least fix this (I know LG manufacter's the AH-IPS) as all these monitors were returned. It's a shame because otherwise they may be the best IPS you can get at 1080p for under 300$.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Our 25xw has recently exhibited the GREEN TINT issue. It was manufactured in February 2016.
The problem is intermittent. It never occurs while the monitor is actively in use. But somtimes, when the monitor wakes after a period of inactivity, the entire screen has a green tint that cannot be corrected. Other times, when it wakes, the color is fine. I replaced the HDMI cable, as a precaution. The behavior did not improve. I temporarily swaped the 25xw with another monitor. After several days of typical use, the "new" monitor has not exhibited the problem. I then swapped the 25xw back in, and the problem is back. From this, I conclude that the problem is the monitor, not the HDMI cable, nor is it the computer video card.
This seems very similar to the manufacturing quality issue that others observed in 2016.
What do you advise?
