Chart

Two DisplayPorts

The HP Z27x has more DisplayPorts than most of the medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the Z27x. Most of the flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to the Z27x only have one DisplayPort, however this PC display has two DisplayPorts.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Average

This LCD screen has an average user rating of 69 out of 100 based on 10 user reviews.

Only Two USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The HP Z27x is a two USB Type-A downstream port LCD screen. Most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the Z27x have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP Z27x does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the Z27x.

Alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Acer XR341CK ($906.48); or the HP ENVY 34 ($2,499.00), or the Acer Predator X34 ($885.99).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC monitors that have been available for more than a year, the HP Z27x does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the Z27x are not 3D compatible. The HP Z27x is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and type to the Z27x, the HP Z27x does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL UP2715K ($1,008.00), or the Benq SW2700PT ($599.00) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

The maximum height adjustments of flatpanel monitors that were released more than a year ago range from 17mm to 510mm. With a maximum height adjustment of only 120 millimeters, the HP Z27x has a quite low maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the Z27x.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Response Time

The HP Z27x has a quite slow response time (12 milliseconds) compared to most of the other PC monitors that were released around the same time as the Z27x. The fastest response time of similar spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the Z27x is 1ms, the slowest is 40ms, and the average response time is 5.7ms.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The HP Z27x is quite heavy (8.8 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the Z27x. Across all the flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the Z27x the weights range from 2.3g to 79kg, and the average weight is 5kg.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z27x

Released Over a Year Ago

This flatpanel monitor was released over a year ago.

LCD Display Type

The HP Z27x has an LCD display type which is better than most flatpanel monitors of this spec and age. Most medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq SW2700PT ($599.00).

If the display type of this PC display is too bad for you then you might want to look at the DELL UP2715K ($1,008.00) (LED and higher rated), or the Asus PA328 ($949.99) (LED and higher rated) or the HP ENVY 34 ($2,499.00) (LED and cheaper).
