To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this monitor because of its ability to swivel to a vertical orientation for reading long documents online. But there are a few issues. First the provided base is too short to actually smoothly swivel it to a vertical view, it doesn’t fit. You need a monitor stand or a different base to property use that function. Send the base is very wide and doesn’t fit on my monitor stands. So I don’t get to use the function I bought it for.
Second the picture quality is only ok. Downloading the drivers etc isn’t as simple or smooth as one would hope and without them adjusting the picture on the monitor is clunky and you have to manually change the picture orientation if you swivel the monitor.
Not the worst but not as great as Id hope for my home setup.
After using it for 4 months, I can say it's a pretty good monitor. Having to work at home permanently, I needed a 27 inch monitor that connects easily with my work laptop, which is also an HP. The nice thing about this monitor is that it comes with all the cables needed, At 1080p resolution, it's enough for most of my daily work (coding). Although the price is a bit higher compare to other 27 inch monitor, it fits my need for my work from home. I recommend this monitor.
Bought this because it looks like I’ll be working from home for a while and it’s great! Super easy to set up, swivels, tilts, height can be adjusted, and text quality is good. I’m a software engineer so I use this to view and edit code. A bit pixelated but I’m not a designer. I love that the screen is matte because I have three giant windows behind me and the screen is non reflective so I can still see the screen clearly. The design is sleek and goes well with my desk. The 27” screen is massive and I’m absolutely in love with this purchase. They shipped almost immediately and I got this a day earlier than I expected! Overall I highly recommend this monitor for work.
Bought two for a telecommute setup at home and I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ll be honest, I’m not a technology expert, I didn’t run a bunch of detailed RGB accuracy tests, blah, blah, blah, but in the way most folks use it (just by looking at it) it’s great. It was easy to unbox and set up, it adjusts every which way and the image is crisp and bright. It comes with four different cables plus a power cord, it doesn’t have speakers, the screen is a matte finish, and the look is stylish and modern without being artificial-looking. All in all it’s a nice bit of kit. There are cheaper 27” monitors out there but I think you get what you pay for and the price here seemed fair.
This monitor is solid. I purchased 3 of them to use on a stand up desk. They don't move when I put the desk up or down. They also have multiple options to position the screen without moving the base. The picture quality is very good. I would purchase these again to replace other office monitors.
I think this is one of the best writing monitors around, and also definitely great for other uses.
The screen is very un-reflective, and for whatever glare it still has, you can swivel it to avoid it, which is not something you can with basic monitors that don't swivel. It also tilts and rotates, but I don't personally use that so I cannot comment on it. The base is wide and very sturdy, and nice looking.
It comes with two USB 3 outputs (one input); located in a recessed portion to the left side. This is a somewhat odd location because it's a little tough to plug things one-handed, but I've found very useful for things that you just leave plugged there (like a USB audio dongle, or a USB thumb drive), because it hides them from view and accidental touches and pulls.
The menu system is really nice (unlike Dell, for example which is often hard to deal with), and easy to operate with one hand.
It comes with all cables, which is a bit of an overkill and a waste, I think; I don't need any more VGA or HDMI or even DP cables (I've never even used DP before). And again, if you need any you can just buy them separately. But the power cable and USB cable are needed; yes.
Overall, I think this is one of the best 27" monitor around, especially for coding or writing. I wish it had an audio output, or little speakers, but I don't really mind it.
Ordered Sunday, was supposed to come Friday but showed up Wednesday.....nice! Has a very sturdy stand which extends and swivels....lots of heft to the base. Allows for vertical or horizontal viewing. For horizontal the bottom of screen goes from desk to 6 inches above. Comes with all cables. Screen looks great so far....will repost as it gets used more. Overall appearance of the monitor as well as how it displays seems top notch!
I am working from home and needed something that I can do large excel spreadsheets along with other programs at the same time. I purchased this as the 2nd monitor and so far I really like it. Using it right now. Its very clear and bright. SUPER EASY to setup, in fact easiest one i have ever setup. Love the advisability very smooth and lots of height or low (almost to the desk). I don't game so I have no comment on that but Video quality is amazing.
