Despite the lack of HDR support and a local dimming feature, the HP 27F monitor remains a worthwhile option for professionals thanks to its wide color gamut, fast response time, low input lag, and elegant design.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The HP 27F monitor is a mid-tier 2019 release that promises to deliver accurate images courtesy of its wide viewing angles and high color accuracy due to its wide color gamut. The display has ultra-thin borders that allow for a multi-screen setup, and with a low input lag of 7.4ms, it does not have any sluggishness with its execution of commands. Users will also appreciate how easy the 27F monitor is to move around, as it only weighs 7.1 pounds, which makes it lighter than the HP-M27Ha at 11.49 pounds. Make sure to get to the end of this HP 27F monitor review to find out whether or not the display has what it takes to rank among the top-rated computer monitors.

Consensus

our Verdict

The HP 27F monitor is a great choice for professional use. It’s easy to move around and has ultra-thin bezels for a sleek look. Unfortunately, it lacks a local dimming feature, which would have improved its black levels and contrast ratio. Viewing angles are satisfactory, but no HDR support and poor ergonomics might be a dealbreaker for some.
