It is supported by a stand that provides tilt, swivel, height, and pivot adjustments, and it has four VESA-compliant holes for mounting the cabinet on a wall using an optional mounting kit. I/O ports are plentiful and are all positioned at the rear of the cabinet, facing downward.
Here you’ll find two HDMI inputs, two DisplayPort inputs (one full size and one mini), a DisplayPort output for daisy-chaining up to four monitors, a USB 3.0 hub with one upstream port and four downstream ports, and an audio output. Also at the rear of the cabinet, on the right side, are a power switch and five function buttons for navigating the settings menus.back to menu ↑
2.ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV
- 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS monitor with frameless design
- International color standard 100% sRGB and 100% Rec. 709 wide color gamut
The ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV is a very good budget-friendly monitor that’s intended for creative professionals. Its superb ergonomics, high peak brightness, and wide viewing angles make it a good fit for nearly any type of workspace. It comes with good color accuracy out-of-the-box and it has an excellent SDR color gamut; however, it can’t display a wide color gamut and doesn’t support HDR.
It has impressive gaming performance despite its professional-looking design, as it has a fast response time, Adaptive Sync support, and a 75Hz refresh rate that makes fast motion look just a bit more fluid. Unfortunately, it has a low contrast ratio and mediocre black uniformity, which is expected of most IPS panels. On the bright side, it provides a generous number of USB ports and even has a pair of built-in speakers.back to menu ↑
- 27” UltraFine UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS Display
- VESA DisplayHDR 400
Gaming with all features intact. That’s the LG 27UN850-W gaming monitor’s core proposition. It’s a 27-inch 4K monitor that not only offers HDR400 support, but also precise image quality thanks to its 4K native resolution and IPS panel. It also offers sleek styling and a feature set finely tuned for gaming and productivity.
Highlights here include USB-C connectivity complete with 60W device charging and 3-side virtually borderless display styling with heigh, swivel, pivot and tilt ergonomic adjustments.
As mentioned, the 27UN850-W is HDR certified, but unlike its other sibling the LG 27UK850-W that support HDR10, this panel rocks VESA DisplayHDR 400 and 99% sRGB color gamut coverage. For your gaming sessions, the Ultrafine UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution is a win, making it a promising display from a productivity perspective.back to menu ↑
4.BenQ PD2700U 27 inch
- SEE MORE 27 inch 4K IPS HDR monitor w/wide viewing angles 60Hz
- EXPERIENCE MORE HDR10 support lets you preview video content in HDR during editing for better faster results. Brightness - 350 cd/㎡. Response Time - 5ms(GtG). Refresh Rate - 60Hz. Aspect Ratio - 16:9
But our testing has uncovered some diamonds in the rough. Some can deliver professional-grade features for three figures instead of your typical four figures.
BenQ’s DesignVue Series of products have model model numbers beginning with “PD” and include screens from 24 to 32 inches in both 1440p (2560 x 1440) and 4K (3840 x 2160) resolutions. We’ve reviewed numerous DesignVue monitors and even use one, the BenQ PD3200U, as a reference tool.
I am, in fact, writing this review on one. Today, we’ll be looking at its 27-inch cousin, the BenQ PD2700U ( at the time of writing). It’s not just a smaller version of the same panel though. Though not specced to be the best HDR monitor on the market, it adds HDR10 support and a brighter backlight to an already impressive feature list.back to menu ↑
5.AOC U2790VQ 27″
- AOC 27” 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 UHD LED monitor
- Ips panel with wide Viewing angles and produces over 1 billion colors for rich details
Now’s a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always AOC deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there’s a massive range to choose from. High quality graphics are super important when you’re playing and the gaming monitors sometimes sold with PCs are pretty rubbish. You may also want to use a monitor alongside a gaming laptop.
The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed – not the monitor case itself. The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. The display size of this large monitor is 27 inches.
