8 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This PC display was given an "Editor's Choice" award by Tomshardware.com who thought that this HP LCD screen was superb.

Five USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The HP Z27q is a five USB Type-A downstream port PC display. Most of the other LCD screens of this type and age have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.

Chart Edit

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC displays of this age and type.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the Z Display Z27[pl_2077589_price], and the Z27s[pl_3053471_price] both from HP or the Fujitsu P27T-7[plb_3367075_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

We calculated the average ratings for all HP PC monitors and also specifically for HP medium monitors and found that in both cases HP had good ratings.

Two DisplayPorts

The HP Z27q has more DisplayPorts than most of the comparable spec PC screens that came out around the same time as the Z27q. This HP PC screen is a two DisplayPort PC display compared to most of the medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z27q which only have one DisplayPort.

Chart Edit

Very Many Display Colour Count

With a display colour count of 1,070 million, the HP Z27q has a very many display colour count compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the Z27q. The least display colour count of similar spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as the Z27q is 16M and the most is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

4096 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The HP Z27q has a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (which is also found on this PC display). In addition, this flatpanel monitor have graphics resolutions of 1280 x 768, 1600 x 900, 2560 x 1440, 3840 x 2160, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+), 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 4096 x 2160 graphics resolution is actually the best resolution across all LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the Z27q.

Across similar types of PC monitor the worst resolution is 720 x 400.

Fairly Big Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 68.6 centimeters, the HP Z27q has a fairly big display diagonal compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and type. The average display diagonal of medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27q is 65cm.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the Z27q have a built-in speaker, however the HP Z27q does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the AOC U3277PQU[plb_2969583_price], the LG 32SL5B[plb_3304896_price], or the Acer Predator XB271HK[plb_3086846_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HP Z27q does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the Z27q also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The HP Z27q is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC displays of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Asus PG278Q[plb_3097078_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that are a comparable age to the Z27q do not have an integrated card reader. The HP Z27q is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Alternative PC screens which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at include the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Pricey

We think this medium monitor looks expensive compared to other medium monitors that came out more than a year ago. The cheapeast flatpanel monitor of a comparable age and type that we found costs £46 and the most expensive costs £4,106.

High Running Costs

The Z27q is in the most expensive 7% of all 505 LCD screens that were launched more than a year ago that we have looked at 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.

Chart

Quite High Maximum Power Consumption

The HP Z27q has one of the higher maximum power consumptions (96 Watts) amongst medium monitors of this age. The maximum power consumptions of medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the Z27q range from 0.45W to 170W, and the average maximum power consumption is 51W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Slow Response Time

The fastest response time of PC screens of a similar type and age to the Z27q is 1ms, the slowest is 40ms, and the average response time is 5.7ms. The response time of the HP Z27q of 14 milliseconds is one of the slowest amongst similar spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the Z27q.
