Consensus

our Verdict

Experts were pleased with the Lenovo D27-30, recommending it for moderate gaming. Consumers looking for a more gaming-centric 27-inch screen can explore our HP OMEN 27c review. Critics were pleased with its low 8.5 ms input lag and support for Freesync, which resulted in good motion handling during testing. Analysts at Monitor Nerds praised its contrast ratio and excellent darkroom performance, which is superior to that of the Lenovo ThinkVision M14. They were also pleased with its Full HD resolution and decent text clarity, and they recommended it for the office. Testers observed that it has good reflection handling, although it doesn’t get bright enough to fight glare in brightly lit spaces. Researchers at PC Mag praised this model’s outstanding black uniformity, noticing a deviation of just 0.623%, and it fully covers the sRGB color gamut. However, reviewers were disturbed by the stand on this unit. Like the Dell S2421H, this monitor supports only limited adjustment. Also, the single HDMI 1.4 port and absence of DisplayPort connectors and USB ports was disappointing for reviewers.

Reason to Buy

  • Outstanding contrast ratio
  • Good gray and black uniformity
  • Excellent input lag
  • Wide color gamut
  • FreeSync support

Reason to Avoid

  • Ergonomically limited stand
  • Low peak brightness
  • Narrow viewing angles which horizontal color washout after 34°
  • Poor out-of-the-box color accuracy
  • Slow 21.8 ms total response time at 60Hz

The Lenovo D27-30 is very similar to the Lenovo ThinkVision C27-30, with both having a 27-inch screen, VA panel tech, and 1920 x 1080 resolution. However, while the Lenovo D27-30 features built-in speakers, the Lenovo ThinkVision C27-30 doesn’t come with a built-in sound system.

The Lenovo D27-30 has a better 4,048:1 contrast ratio and therefore offers better dark room performance than the BenQ GW2780, which has a contrast ratio of 1000:1. However, owing to IPS panel tech, the BenQ GW2780 has better viewing angles than the VA panel-equipped Lenovo D27-30.
