Description

Given that the peak brightness is far higher than that of rival monitors, it’s a bit disappointing that the X27qc doesn’t support any form of HDR. It would do a far better job of producing entry-level DisplayHDR 400 than many of its competitors. That said, entry-level HDR adds precious little to your experience and should not be considered a necessity by any means. Frankly, the X27qc looks great without it.

The dynamic contrast shows the ratio between the brightest and the darkest color, which the display can reproduce over time, for example, in the course of playing a video. The ratio between the horizontal and the vertical side of the display. Some of the standard and widely used aspect ratios are 4:3, 5:4, 16:9 and 16:10. A frame is a still image. Your gaming PC combines a vast number of frames into a sort of virtual flip-book to create what you see on your monitor. The number of frames your gaming PC can combine in a second is known as a frame rate (measured in frames per second), a figure that will vary depending on the intensity of the task. HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP support); 1 DisplayPort™ 1.4-in (with HDCP support) (1 HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP support); 1 DisplayPort™ 1.4-in (with HDCP support)) It's also not that different from products like the Pixio PX277 Pro, given the differences in inverse ghosting performance. Another product we often recommend is the Gigabyte M27Q, and the HP X27q we feel delivers the better experience.

The best budget gaming monitors you can buy in 2023

The most widely used panels are those with 6, 8, and 10 bits for each of the RGB components of the pixel. They provide 18-, 24-, and 30-bit color, respectively. Information about the maximum horizontal viewing angle, within which the image on the screen is of acceptable quality. The pixel pitch shows the distance from the centers of two neighboring pixels. In displays, which have a native resolution (the TFT ones, for example), the pixel pitch depends on the resolution and the size of the screen.

However we were pleasantly surprised with the stand HP has included. It's not the most sturdy or high quality stand we've seen, but it does support height adjustment and even pivot adjustment, so you can use the monitor in a portrait orientation without needing a third party stand. The modes higher than Level 2 are pretty unusable due to high levels of overshoot. While response performance does improve, overshoot gets significantly worse, especially in the Level 4 mode, and it's here you'll see massive inverse ghost trails behind moving objects. These modes are only included so HP can claim the monitor has a 1ms response time - which it can achieve, just with insane and unusable levels of overshoot. The average Delta E colour variance score didn’t drop below 2.5 in any colour mode and the culprit was the same corner of the colour spectrum every time. Given the HP X27qc seems to be fairly accurate elsewhere this isn’t completely damning but it’s a shame nonetheless.

If your monitor refreshes at 60Hz, and your gaming PC is pumping out 120 frames per second, you’re losing a total of 60 frames every second because your monitor cannot refresh fast enough. This deficit might cause “screen tearing”, which looks like it sounds: horizontal lines that run across your screen and distort what you’re seeing. Information about the maximum vertical viewing angle, within which the image on the screen is of acceptable quality. Maximum brightness is good, at a touch under 400 nits, which is what HP advertises. Most budget monitors of this class get around this bright, which is sufficient for indoor usage in most conditions. Minimum brightness is also solid at 43 nits, great for users in darker conditions. However. there is no inverse ghosting present, as there is no overshoot, typical of settings where overdrive is not used. Cumulative deviation is only modest, suggesting the balance between response times and overshoot is unbalanced in favor of minimizing overshoot.
