Consensus

our Verdict

Reviewers gave the Lepow Z1 Gamut mixed reviews, endorsing it on-the-go office use and media creation. Analysts were pleased by this device’s 1080p resolution, pointing out that it offers a high pixel density, delivering sharp imagery and text. Researchers at Windows Central hailed its portable design. This monitor has a wide color gamut, covering 99.3% of the sRGB color space, producing vivid colors suitable for some content creation workflows. It has both USB-C and mini-HDMI ports, which delighted analysts. Testers at RTINGS hailed its reflection handling, saying that it’s suitable for use near windows, although it doesn’t get bright enough to fight glare in some well-lit spaces. Reviewers bemoaned this screen’s painfully slow 36.2 ms total response time, which resulted in visible blurry artifacts on the screen during gaming. In addition to this, it has a relatively low 60Hz refresh rate, so editors could not recommend it for serious gaming. Enthusiasts are better off with larger gaming models such as the LG 32GN50T-B. Reviewers were also unhappy with this device’s low 1,078:1 contrast ratio.
