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...

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....

HP Envy 27


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 27


This is a stylish, large screen and looks very nice. It is not as bright as my HP laptop screen, but it is OK.

These days computer output is by way of HDMI, and when the HDMI connection is used it disables the controls on the monitor. While audio files play OK, I find that the sound from playing DVDs is not loud enough by far, and needs to be routed to...

HP Envy 27


looks very clean and very easy to set up and the build is good.

could use some USB slots at the back of the monitor the screen volume control is a little fiddly if you are used to using the volume on the keyboard.

HP Envy 27


It is very contemporary styled and screen size is good. Nice black finish

Brightness control very complicated and not offered through buttons. No HDMI Audio support. Had to use separate lead.
