HP 27xi Review


Thin is in. From Ultrabooks to phones to all-in-one PCs, the thinner the better. If manufacturers make it thin and sexy looking, customers will flock straight to these svelte products, right? Of course, if all products are sleek and gorgeous, actual...

Very good image quality ; Accurate color rendition ; Sharp looking chassis

Limited stand adjustment ; No VESA mounts on back; can't be mounted on an ergonomic stand ; No DisplayPort

HP’s latest Pavilion 27xi monitor would look great on any executive’s desk. It’s thin, elegant, and takes up surprisingly little tabletop space for a 27-inch display.

The HP Pavilion 27xi easily meets your basic monitor needs


As long as you have no advanced demands, the Pavilion 27xi will meet your basic needs with aplomb.

The HP Pavilion 27xi features a beautiful, streamlined design, great performance, and useful screen customization options.

The monitor feels plasticky, ergonomic options are limited, and the screen reflects sunlight something fierce.

HP Pavilion 27xi


There's something about a frame with no bezel that catches your eye, which is one reason why we're starting to see more and more monitors sporting the "floating screen" design. One such model, the HP Pavilion 27xi, features a 27-inch IPS panel and an...

Great color and viewing angles. Sleek design. Good grayscale performance. Energy efficient

Reflective coating. Tilt-only stand. No USB ports

The HP Pavilion 27xi is a beautifully designed 27-inch monitor featuring a bezel-less cabinet and a gorgeous IPS panel. Performance is solid but the panel?s reflective coating can be distracting.

"Awesome monitor at a great price."


If you just want a screen, with great picture quality and a low price, and are going to use HDMI or purchase your own cables, and do not need sound, then this is a great monitor. The main monitor part is superb, with just the extras feeling a little...

The screen quality is superb, and the control system on the bottom right-hand corner is great and easy to use. The stand seems to be made of metal. It was easy to assemble the stand.

The cables (VGA, DVI) that are included are not good, and create what appear to be bad pixels until you straighten them out. There are no speakers in this monitor, unlike HP's own Envy 27. It is made of plastic on the rear, and below the glass panel.

Pretty / short life


Good appearance - almost Apple-like to go with my Mac Mini ; Good color rendition ; Would make a good (if expensive) IKEA furniture prop

Dead in 18 months ; When waking up from sleep, it had been requiring me to power it off & on again for maybe 6 months. Today it's just dead (on 3 different computers). The power light lights up when plugged in, but that all

Excellent Quality for Value


I received this as a gift when it was $160.00 off for a 72 hour sale ; The quality and size is unparalleled for the price. I was curious just how much of an upgrade this would be from a 23" monitor but I was blown away ; The image quality is bright and...

No monitor adjustments aside from slight tilting, but you can't ask for that with the price range. The glossy screen might bother some people but I haven't noticed any problems with glare

Considering other reviews with less-than-stellar performance, I have to say that I've had no trouble with mine. But, I only use it at its native hd resolution and refresh. Of course there are going to be some lemons but, when the amounts of a popular...

So far it's had Perfect Performance, 100%. Got it back in February, 8 months later its still running like the day it was first turned on

Do not buy



Highly reflective screen. Very bad IPS glow. Poor blacks and washed out, low contrast look. Plasticky screen cover (which is suppose to be glass) is not fully attached. Cheap casing. Wobbly stand

Consumer review by:

I bought this mainly as a PC & console gaming monitor but was disappointed.


These are my main problems with this monitor 1. No color saturation option I think most monitors always have a color saturation option, this monitor doesn't. I have an old AOC 720p 19" monitor that has a color saturation option with a slide bar where...

slim ; light weight ; doesn't get burning hot, only warm ; 27" is noticeably a lot bigger compared to 19

weak color reproduction, low color saturation ; no color saturation option ; power cable input in back of monitor gets loose causing monitor to turn off ; reflective screen (liquid crystal display) ; no speakers or headphone jack input ; 7ms for gaming...

Ballin' Monitor!


Get this one.

You want this monitor! You NEED this monitor! The sleek design screams high-end! Factory settings are golden from the initial setup

None. Just that my desk needs to be bigger now because two of these bad boys side by side for a dual display setup is in my future
