8 Reasons For

Good Size

One HP Z27s reviewer who reviewed this PC monitor said that it was a good height. Last year Macobserver.com wrote “Height, pivot, tilt and rotation (to portrait) adjustments” in their HP Z27s review.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the other PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the HP Z Display Z27[plb_2077589_price], or the Samsung LS32E590CS[plb_3844505_price] which has better reviews; or the Philips 241P6VPJKEB[plb_3021583_price] which is cheaper.

Good Brand

On average HP medium monitors have good ratings as do all PC monitors built by HP.

Very Big Viewable Height

The viewable heights of medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago range from 230mm to 700mm. With a viewable height of 596.16 millimeters, the HP Z27s's viewable height is one of the biggest amongst comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27s.

Chart Edit

Quite Many Display Colour Count

At 1,070 million, the HP Z27s has a fairly many display colour count compared to most of the other PC screens that have been available for a comparable time to the Z27s. The average display colour count of medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27s is 150M.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the Z27s have between one and three HDMI ports, including the HP Z27s which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

2560 X 1600 (WQXGA) Graphics Resolution

The HP Z27s has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA). That's 98% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (which is also found on this PC monitor). In addition, this flatpanel monitor have graphics resolutions of 720 x 400, 2560 x 1440, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+), 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

The dimmest display brightness of similar spec LCD screens that have been available for a comparable time to the Z27s is 25 cd/m², the brightest is 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². At 300 candellas per square meter, the HP Z27s has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other PC screens of this type and age.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This flatpanel monitor has an average expert rating of 60 out of 100 based on two expert reviews from sites including macobserver.com and prad.de. This means that PC monitor experts really don't rate this PC display very highly.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z27s have a built-in speaker, however the HP Z27s does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Philips BDM3270[plb_2783117_price], the Benq BL2711[plb_2838535_price], or the Acer BX320HK[plb_3158695_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the Z27s do not have a built-in camera. The HP Z27s is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 241P6VPJKEB[plb_3021583_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other PC displays that have been available for around the same time as the Z27s, the HP Z27s is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Asus PG278Q[plb_3097078_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the Z27s, the HP Z27s does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at alternative flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Pricey

We checked 434 PC screens of a comparable spec and age and they range in price from £46 to £4,106. We think that this PC display looks expensive compared to other PC screens of a comparable spec and age.

Very High Running Costs

The Z27s is one of the least economic to run flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the Z27s will cost £101 over 5 years to run.

Chart

Very Small Viewable Size Diagonal

Across all the PC monitors of this age and spec the viewable size diagonals range from 260mm to 870mm, and the average viewable size diagonal is 560mm. At only 335.34 millimeters, the HP Z27s has a fairly small viewable size diagonal compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the Z27s.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

With a maximum height adjustment of only 120 millimeters, the HP Z27s has one of the lower maximum height adjustments amongst medium monitors of this age. The lowest maximum height adjustment of PC monitors that were released more than a year ago is 17mm, the highest is 510mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Power Consumption

Across all the similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27s the maximum power consumptions range from 0.45W to 170W. With a maximum power consumption of 92 Watts, the HP Z27s has one of the higher maximum power consumptions amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of PC screens of a comparable age and type to the Z27s range from 2.3g to 79kg, and the average weight is 5kg. At 7.8 kilograms, the HP Z27s is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the Z27s.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z27s

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when HP released the Z27s.

Average Width

With a width of 625.6 millimeters, the HP Z27s has a pretty standard width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the Z27s.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 625.6mm wide PC displays currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP Z Display Z27[plb_2077589_price].
