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.

9 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.

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.

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.
