The narrowest viewing angle, horizontal of medium monitors that have been available for more than a year is 18°, the widest is 180°, and the average viewing angle, horizontal is 170°. At 178 degrees, the HP 27xw has a fairly wide viewing angle, horizontal compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 27xw.
Two HDMI Ports Quantitys
The HP 27xw is a two HDMI ports quantity flatpanel monitor. Most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the 27xw have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

The HP 27xw does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other LCD screens that were released around the same time as the 27xw which have a built-in speaker(s).
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the AOC Q2577PWQ[plb_3032056_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the Philips 221S6QYKMB/00[plb_3015788_price] is also worth considering.
