HP Envy 27 (2017)

 

Equipped with USB-C connectivity and AMD FreeSync technology, the slickly designed HP Envy 27 delivers a highly detailed picture and good grayscale performance.

Sleek design. Sharp UHD picture. AMD FreeSync-enabled. Good grayscale performance. USB-C connectivity.

Skewed greens. Tilt-only stand. Lacks USB 3.0 ports. Stingy warranty.

If you want a good-looking large-screen UHD monitor without having to drop a bundle, the HP Envy 27 is a solid choice. It delivered excellent image detail in our tests, and offers wide viewing angles, but its color accuracy could be better. While not...

HP Envy 27

 

The HP Envy 27 27-inch monitor is not only aesthetically pleasing, it delivers rich colors and premium audio quality courtesy of Dr. Dre's Beats Audio technology.

Solid color quality. Wide viewing angles. Stylish. Powerful audio output.

Pricey. No USB connectivity. Tilt-only stand.

Conclusion The HP Envy 27 27-inch IPS LED Backlit Monitor may cost a bit more than most 27-inch IPS monitors but it offers something that the others don't; a Beats Audio-powered speaker system that does away with the need for desktop speakers. The...

HP Envy 27 review - IPS panel with built-in speakers branded by Beats Audio

 

27in IPS panel with built-in speakers branded by Beats Audio.

Very stylish looks, big display, glossy front, Beats Audio built-in, DisplayPort connectivity, nice controls, good contrast ratio, slim aspect and thin bevel

Light leak on right side, big variation in brightness, not 100% sRGB, poor AdobeRGB coverage, only 1920x1080 compared to other 27" panels

Checking the colour gamut coverage, sRGB reached 97%, Adobe RGB at 76% and NTSC at a lowly 71%. Brightness consistency was mostly satisfactory except for the right side which was much brighter – up to 16.3% difference at 100% brightness setting....

Have had the monitor for about a month, and the screen is super clear. However this wasn't the case with an old Windows XP desktop. After the purchase of a Windows 7 desktop (that I was going to purchase anyway), the screen resolution is crystal clear....

HP Envy 27s 4K Ultra HD 27" LED Monitor

 

A dream come true for anyone who wishes to mange multiple open windows. The screen is wide, bright and super sharp... this makes my computing experience feel spacious, efficient and uncluttered. Gone are the days of tabbing through a layered labyrinth...

The control buttons on the back of the screen are a little awkward to use... but this is a minor complaint

HP Envy 27s 4K Ultra HD 27" LED Monitor

 

Got this after earlier purchasing 1080p HP monitor which had serious light bleed. Couldn't handle it so returned and purchased this one at a significant price increase. Chose it over much cheaper Samsung and Asus 4k displays because of the superior...

Wouldn't scale properly on 2017 MacBook Pro using HDMI ports - however fixed by purchasing display port cable. Price slightly excessive, can get similar quality displays at lower prices. No HDR.

HP Envy 27s 4K Ultra HD 27 LED Monitor

 

Love it. I'm a programmer and so need the huge screen. It's makes it much easier to code. Beautiful, elegant, thin, crisp image.

The product description says it has a USB C port but is doesn't. I had to shell out for an adapter. And don't use HDMI as you won't get 4K output. One of the reasons I wanted this model was because the USB C port built in.
