  • As long as you have no advanced demands, the Pavilion 27xi will meet your basic needs with aplomb.


  • The HP Pavilion 27xi is a beautifully designed 27-inch monitor featuring a bezel-less cabinet and a gorgeous IPS panel. Performance is solid but the panel?s reflective coating can be distracting.


  • HP may have placed their Pavilion name branding on their latest 27-inch display but it frankly offers the same general performance of its more expensive ENVY monitor but at a lower price. The IPS display technology provides it with wide viewing angles and some good color but it still sits at that same 1920x1080p as smaller more affordable displays. Overall, it is a good option for those that are looking for large screen with a basic set of features that still has a relatively thin profile.


  • The HP EliteDisplay 271i is a reasonably priced 27-inch business monitor that delivers relatively accurate colors, good grayscale reproduction, and crisp text. It has a flexible stand and a USB hub but it doesn't support USB 3.0 or HDMI video.


  • The HP Envy 27 27-inch monitor is not only aesthetically pleasing, it delivers rich colors and premium audio quality courtesy of Dr. Dre's Beats Audio technology.It's also more expensive than most 27-inch monitors.


  • Checking the colour gamut coverage, sRGB reached 97%, Adobe RGB at 76% and NTSC at a lowly 71%. Brightness consistency was mostly satisfactory except for the right side which was much brighter - up to 16.3% difference at 100% brightness setting. Checking the screen on pure black there was clear light leak on that side too. Colour consistency across the display was fairly even, apart from the bottom centre third where it varied by Delta-E 4.4 at 100% Brightness. It wasn't the worst in colour accuracy, but not great either.


  • The HP ZR2740w sacrifices customization to deliver a powerful monitor at a reasonable price.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The HP ZR2740w is an exceptional large-screen monitor that is ideal for the most demanding professional users. It's also hard to beat if you're looking for a great gaming or multimedia monitor, provided your budget and graphics card can handle it. Some strategic omissions from the monitor's feature set have allowed HP to offer this exceptional product for a much lower price than its competitors' professional-grade monitors.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The ZR2740W had some good areas but some which left us a little disappointed. From a positive point of view, the default colour setup was pretty good apart from the overly high brightness which is easy to adjust. Viewing angles were as you would expect from an IPS panel and luminance and backlight uniformity seemed good. Pixel response times were pretty good and input lag was low. There was a very good range of easy to use ergonomic adjustments and the presence of DisplayPort was welcome along with the DL-DVI.


  • - The back of the monitor is smooth and curves toward the front.
    - Colors looked full and vibrant, but were oversaturated in the Movie preset.
    - In the neck of the display is a useful hole to route the cords and keep them tidy.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - Poor 1 year warranty compared to most other manufacturer's 3-year guarantees.


  • - The audio was clear just difficult to hear.
