Two DisplayPorts

Chart Edit

4096 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the HP Z27q is 4096 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (which is also found on this PC display). This PC screen also 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).

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP Z27q does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27q do have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Hannspree HS246HFW[plb_2936513_price], the Asus VP228T[plb_3158900_price], or the DELL S2415H[plb_2570661_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
