7 Reasons For
Five USB Type-A Downstream Ports
The HP Z27q is a five USB Type-A downstream port PC screen.
The HP Z27q has more DisplayPorts than most of the latest LCD screens. Most of the new medium monitors only have one DisplayPort, however this flatpanel monitor has two DisplayPorts.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The horizontal viewing angles of recently released medium monitors range from 89° to 180°. The HP Z27q has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst medium monitors of this age.
Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the HP Z27q has one of the wider vertical viewing angles amongst similar spec flatpanel monitors of this age. Recently released medium monitors have vertical viewing angles of between 65° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
HP Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays
Medium monitors manufactured by HP have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
Quite Many Display Colour Count
The average display colour count of medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the Z27q is 200M. The HP Z27q has a quite many display colour count (1,070 million) compared to most of the other newly released flatpanel monitors.
+2 More reasons for
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution of the HP Z27q is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 11% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). Across all medium monitors that have been available for the last year the worst resolution is 720 x 400 and the best is 3840 x 2160.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other new medium monitors have a built-in speaker, however the HP Z27q does not have a built-in speaker.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC monitors that came out around the same time as the Z27q, the HP Z27q does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in camera and we think the Lenovo X1 (£44.78) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The HP Z27q does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released LCD screens also do not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader which you might also want to consider including the 2408WFP, or the U2413 (£279.00) both from DELL which is also higher rated.
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27q are not 3D compatible. The HP Z27q is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Asus PG278Q.
+5 More reasons against
High Running Costs
The Z27q is one of the less economic to run similar spec LCD screens that came out in the last year that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the Z27q is £124.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Quite High Maximum Power Consumption
The HP Z27q has a fairly high maximum power consumption (96 Watts) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the Z27q. The average maximum power consumption of newly released comparable spec PC monitors is 52W, and the maximum power consumptions range from 18W to 170W.
Very Slow Response Time
Similar spec PC screens that were released around the same time as the Z27q have response times of between 1ms and 20ms, and the average response time is 5.2ms. The HP Z27q has a very slow response time (14 milliseconds) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec flatpanel monitors.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z27q
Released Nine Months Ago
It was nine months ago when this LCD screen was released.
LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on latest PC screens.
We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung CF390 (£149.29) is also worth considering.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this PC monitor have been estimated based on other similar PC monitors. If you know how much electricity and water the HP Z27quses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this PC monitor over 5 years will generate 0.61 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 16 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
