These are the top 27 inch monitors you should buy now

1. HP - 27q

The silver surface of the device adds a nice touch of class and uniqueness, a serious lack of most home and office display. Since the thin baffle surface almost free two-stage design of the outer and inner boundaries. it is suitable for tight spaces or HP27Q slim fitted on the wall ratio. The weight of the entire device only 10.7lbs. 

Connectivity is not a problem HP 27Q, as it relates to well-equipped with the latest standards. I face DisplayPort / O board, which includes 1.2, two slots HDMI 1.4, and a conventional VGA connector means. The device lacks one pair of built-in speakers and a number of USB slots to provide an increased value-oriented budget.

HP 27Q PE a 27-inch IPS panel has a 2560 X 1440 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and a response time of 5ms. Bright luminance of the backlight when the luminance of 350cd / m 2, using the specified day and night contrast value of 1: 1000. Matte coating is a well-lit environment suitable for the company is indeed a good working surface of the deflection is unnecessary glare.

HP 27Q our test scores means more basic decent addition to using the product. DeltaE default precision value IPS panel may cover the color gamut of sRGB and approximately 100% of 2.5. D65 color temperature close to the ideal settings, but you can use a single point calibration to reduce warmth. You can further improve the image of scores HP 27Q if you have access to elite colorimeter like Datacolor Spyders. We can achieve a DE score. The color balance output of 60 6440K color temperature is desired. Gamma is more appropriate to use the default settings 2.19 instead of 2.3.

3. Dell S2716DGR

If you have a PC capable of running the equipment at 144Hz 1440P, it would be a shame not to have the display, the power can be fully utilized. Dell S2716DG provides 1440P 144Hz 1ms game, if you want to really squeeze you can get your GeForce card is the best kind of value/price. Keep in mind, Dell S2716DGR is exactly the same display, which is sold directly from Dell, and S2716DG extra “R” stands for the “retail model.”Now, Dell S2716DG 27 “image display quality of the game is not its greatest feature, but it is not yes.

What is the display that provides competitive thanks to its fast response time of fast-paced video games, especially for a perfect performance? In order to speed the response time of the display to provide only 1ms, which is based on a TN (twisted nematic) panel, unlike other types of panels (IPS and VA), having a narrow viewing angle.

Cause the image in the viewing angle and contrast of color shift when you look at the front of the screen than any other angle screen. However, due to the fully adjustable seat tilt, height, swivel, and ergonomic, you can always adjust the screen to your viewing position. Another thing is that compared to TN panels, IPS and VA panels worst color quality. So, if you’re okay with sacrificing image quality aspects of performance, Dell S2716DG is for you. While the color may be a bit closed and some black tone a little light gray, the display is still mainly due to its 2560 × 1440 resolution WQHD, which ensures a high pixel count per inch screen provides a bright, clear image quality.

Although 1ms response time to eliminate ghosting and speed of fast-moving, letting you focus on your target escape object motion blur Dell S2716DG input delay performance only 4.5ms, make sure your commands immediate reaction. For the competitiveness of the most sensitive and fluid fast-paced game, a 144Hz refresh rate is not a miracle, because it is more than refreshing the screen, instead of the regular twice 60Hz display, thereby reducing input lag and perception screen tearing. Move the variable display refresh rate provided by Dell S2716DG NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible graphics card. That the G-SYNC will allow the display according to the GPU, wherein the screen is completely eliminated and the tear in the 30-144Hz / FPS range almost no (less than 1ms) input hysteresis cost stuttering change the refresh rate.

Furthermore, you can use ULMB (Super motion blur) function, the black frame is inserted between the common frame to reduce smearing and ghosting.
(When 85Hz, 100Hz, and 120Hz with) this technique only applies to a fixed refresh rate, it can not be used at the same time as the G-SYNC.Those cards will be able to use the display AMD, but did not ULMB G-SYNC function, and should be replaced with AMD FreeSync fine art displays.
Display the shortcut key and power key are disturbing tiny, clunky, hard to press, but taking into account its ultra-thin design, Dell S2716DG does not look good, if any button is large.

Fortunately, OSD (On Screen Display) menu is intuitive and easy to operate. Using standard settings include contrast, brightness, color temperature, RGB, and input source selection.
You will also find the normal selection and fast response time settings. We recommend using a common option is “fast” introduces overshoot pixels.ULMB was reduced since the brightness of the display, called a ULMB pulse width, thereby changing the sensitivity characteristic gating backlight. So, you can increase the brightness, but at the cost of more motion blur, and vice versa.

4. Dell - S2719DGF

The S2719DGF is priced at the low end of the premium class. It uses IPS and VA panels motor function similar competition. The main attraction is the speed. It overclocking 155Hz and 144Hz local time of bonding, through which the signal will run the DisplayPort. It includes HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 1.4 as well. Adaptive synchronization of AMD FreeSync varieties and to work to 40Hz. The widely circulated allow low frame rate compensation, lower than doubles the frame when the refresh of 40Hz. As a result, you never see a tear, and even – less capable graphics card.
In addition to its versatility, S2719DGF comes with one of the best we’ve seen a TN screen. It prejudices each violation image. Rich colors, saturation, not to mention accurate. Viewing angles are surprisingly good.

Of course, this TN is known for the speed is there. Let’s see. Dell flip open carton is exposed S2719DGF divided into three parts: the upright, and a base panel. Content is very easy, with no tools to assemble. As usual, Dell includes a high-quality cable, in this case, USB 3.0 and HDMI interfaces. There are no DisplayPort, which seems to be a strange omission, considering that you can only run at 155Hz DisplayPort through. A power supply line IEC also monitors the internal power box. Supporting documents are available on the Dell site.

Dell S2719DGF by the familiar design theme is well represented. Thin top and side frames surrounding 6 mm, 14 mm and a slightly wider strip running across the bottom of the antiglare layer is a flush-mounted power off the appearance of a free flap. At the bottom run, your finger reveals tiny control buttons. The power switch serves a white LED, and the six keys to the image mode, direct access FreeSync, dark stabilizers, brightness/contrast, display (OSD) on the screen, and an outlet. Each time you press the top of the pop icon indicates that the function of the button, and a status bar on the screen. The position is very solid, a nice weight, and robust action. The height adjustment range is five inches, you will get the tilt of -5 degrees to 21 degrees, 45 degrees in each direction of rotation, and, interestingly, this is a two-way portrait mode. If you want to use a monitor arm or bracket, 100mm VESA mounting on the card at the position provided.

The panel has a through so that the backside of the average thickness profile of a gentle curve. Ventilation is cleverly hidden in a face-down shop. Input panel in an upright rolling and each includes an HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.2. Only the latter can be used in 155Hz, but HDMI 2.0 port supports FreeSync up to 144Hz. By 3.5mm audio input and output jacks support. There are no built-in speakers, but you can control the volume in the OSD.

5. HP Z27

As we mentioned earlier, it is designed more for professional use in an office environment, so you will not find any RGB lights or flashy brands here in the monitor. In Z27, however, it is to build a good, feeling quite sturdy. The solid support has a balance to keep it grounded support a good broad-based. It also has some useful features ergonomic, allowing users to adjust the height, swivel, and tilt to meet their needs.

When moved upward from the base portion, the display is made basic (but not cheap-looking) ferrous metal thin plastic bifurcated stent, in order to allow the wires to pass through. In front, Z27 has perhaps we have seen a modest frame on a 4K monitor the best looking. To the bottom of the baffle is disposed near the bottom right of the display control bit thick. These are typically multi-button control for ease of use so there is no handy joystick. Although they are not too bad, it is not as intuitive LG’s multi-select joystick to quickly change the setting.

In the back of the monitor is put into port and you will find there. First, there is located with the DPRK side to facilitate hooking up the right side of the port USB hub. According to a large bump on this site, you will find things like HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB-C connection input. On the left, there is the power input side of a power switch, so be sure to drive yourself crazy trying to figure out why the display before this will not work. Most monitors only a power button, so it’s worth mentioning.

All started by unpacking the removed plastic film cover, remove the attached instruction preceding rapid start. This is because they actually hold is to improve tracking. If you want to use a newer laptop or MacBook using the display supports HDMI, DisplayPort’s (and small), and USB-C. However, there is no Thunderbolt connection.
After the basics with your new monitor to do here, it may be beneficial to you quickly to an ICC profile, it can give you some specific monitoring stimulate online search. These are easy to find online, so a look, if you feel the need to tweak it some more.

Because of the use (and other types of series) panel with 10-bit color output Z27, they almost guarantee a quality gamut coverage and accuracy. This model has a very accurate precision sRGB specification, but only about 75% of the AdobeRGB. This may limit some areas of the photo or video professional users of validity, but for most amateur or a light user, it will definitely work.
Unlike most other IPS panel, the viewing angle here is under the great majority of cases, and a huge step forward, if you are from a cheaper TN panel come. There must be some backlight bleeding in these (we have some, but nothing crazy) before you buy, so be aware of this. Unfortunately, this problem seems to be just around the troubled these days, every LCD display, so playing the “panel lottery,” If you are extremely bad or distracting may be necessary. Because of this, it is wise to buy from a seller with a good return policy.
Speaking after the return policy, HP is actually one of the better protection with this display, if there is even a single dead pixel will replace it. Some manufacturers do not support this, if there is, maybe one of the two dead pixels, so this is part of HP’s nice perk.

6. Acer V277U bmiipx

Acer V277U good monitor for any use. It performs best, because of its high refresh rate, FreeSync VRR support, good motion handling, and low input lag game display. Unfortunately, this is not a mediocre contrast and black frightening uniformity good choice for dark room viewing. How about you in an office environment, you can not take it because of its poor ergonomic design, but it has a lot of screen real estate and excellent viewing angles.

The Nitro V277U design is very simple. The entire display is black, except for some blue on the bracket. Its back has a premium feel, looks good in the office or gaming environment. The position is relatively small and has the same design as VG271, but there is a blue finish. It supports monitoring wells but overall slightly shaking quite a bit. The display itself is not very thick, looks good if the VESA mounting. From stand out a bit, however, and to prevent the display is completely placed against the wall.

A reader pointed out, we have been ignored. There is a slight gap between the inner edge of the panel and the bezel, and the gaps are slightly wider at the right side of the monitor. We do not think this is a serious problem, but it is on our equipment as well.
Acer nitro V277U has good build quality. In addition to the above-mentioned problems, there is no obvious problems or concerns.

After the pre-calibration result of the re-measurement display, we have re-adjust it. We update results and achievements, as well as our ICC profiles.
After calibration, nitro V277U with excellent accuracy. Color and white balance is almost perfect, there is no obvious error, and the color temperature is very close to our goal of 6500K. Follow the target gamma curve is almost perfect.

7. LG 27UD58-B

LG’s 27UD58-B is a stellar game display 27 inches, most 4K display in the entry-level category undercut. It has an ultra-high-definition (UHD) switching (IPS) within the plane of the panel, and AMD FreeSync provides vivid colors. It has the features, including a screen split control screen, two HDMI ports, and a display port array, which may be used to transmit video over a single cable 4K. The display shows the top-level performance in the game and input lag test, making it a strong competitor in the category. Favorite game modes and black stabilizers additional features to it better than the industry, and its price is not exaggerated to make it quite attractive. If the 27-inch display, LG 24UD58-B is 24 inches iterations of the same display, the same performance, and design.

LG has a beautiful production of traditional products and 27UD58-B to get this. 24 inches UHD (3840 by 2160) panel is surrounded by a black cabinet light gray trim. Cabinet by the curved bracket to provide support to adjust the height and inclination, but can not be rotated or turned.
You can remove the bracket, using four VESA mounting holes and an optional wall mounting kit. 10-panel cover 72% of the sRGB gamut, and has a 250 cd / m 2 luminance peak, 16: 9 aspect ratio, refresh rate of 60Hz, and a 5 ms GTG (gray to gray) pixel response.

All I / O ports are located on the rear of the cabinet, outwardly. All you will find there are two HDMI and a DisplayPort, and it has no USB port, which is a fatal design omission. Stablemate its two inputs HDMI, DisplayPort input, a USB-C port, two USB 3.0 interface, and a USB 2.0 port, 27 inches LG 27UD88-W provides better connectivity. Unlike most displays, which have screens = control, so you just adjust the settings, just like you do on a typical television.

LG’s 27UD58-B is a performer in-game testing. When Grand Theft Auto V, Sony’s PlayStation 4 play, reducing ghosting and Huaping problems are usually tested it provides vivid colors. Enable FreeSync setting does not eliminate the obvious slight blur on the screen, and the black anti-shake function significantly improved playability. There are game modes that make the game more smoothly, I tested the Acer Predator Titan 300, with the GeForce GTX GPU 1060. Interestingly, there is a 2.0 split-screen option on the screen, you can customize the display of both games and work with up to four kinds of PIP settings.

IPS displays accurate gradation every shadow, shadow, and all remaining bright spots in the image and video sharp 4K. When viewing online 4K videos, photos, and bright, with rich colors, from the extreme point of view as well. I tested the monitor with the Star Wars Trailer: The Last of the Jedi, the color quality is very good, which means it can get full episode better gaming and 4K movies. The 24UD58 standard mode power consumption is 40 watts, but it does decrease the default set to sRGB. It is more energy-efficient than with most game display categories, it is used up in the standard mode 52 watts.
