Chart Edit

LED Display 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.

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.

4096 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

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).

6 Reasons Against

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 XB271HKbmiprz[plb_3086846_price] is also worth considering.

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.
