HP Z27u G3 assessment: Large on fashion however the show is missing

With tiny bezels, a slim stand and strong construct high quality, the HP Z27u G3 makes a terrific first impression. The display is simply 38mm thick, and all the unit takes up simply 230mm of house from entrance to again. There’s even 150mm of top adjustment, alongside portrait mode pivoting, and beneficiant quantities of tilt and swivel.

The HP has DisplayPort 1.4 enter and output connectors, so you may daisy-chain secondary screens. It additionally has 4 USB-A 3 ports, with two on the aspect, and its USB-C port helps DisplayPort and a whopping 100W of energy supply. You additionally get Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI ports.

The enticing design pairs with a strong spec. It’s a 27in IPS display with a decision of two,560 x 1,440, and that is sensible for on a regular basis workloads: it’s extra spacious than the typical 1080p monitor and the 109ppi density stage means every little thing seems to be crisp.

It carried out nicely in testing too. A most brightness of 361cd/m2 is sufficient for any indoor surroundings, whereas the 1,060:1 distinction ratio offers it vibrancy with out oversaturation. A Delta E of 1.12, 91.3% sRGB gamut protection and color temperature of 6405K be certain that this panel handles sRGB colors (and Rec. 709) precisely. However don’t be fooled by the DCI-P3 display mode, because it covers solely 64% of that house and 65% of the Adobe RGB gamut.

The HP has mediocre uniformity ranges: its backlight misplaced 16% of its energy within the top-left nook and 18% alongside the highest edge. And whereas the height refresh fee of 60Hz is par for the course, I would really like extra for clean gaming or animation.

There’s one closing subject. The HP has an image-sharpening mode that’s not possible to deactivate. At its default stage, it’s barely noticeable. At its sharpest, it makes textual content too crisp with a bit of discolouration, and on the softer ranges, the display is barely usable.

The Z27u G3 has no audio system, no headphone jack, no KVM change, no USB-B port and no webcam. Nevertheless, the options it does have, and its standout design, imply it’s nonetheless a worthy purchase.
