HP DreamColor Z27x


The HP DreamColor Z27x professional-grade 27-inch monitor that delivers outstanding performance across the board, and is equipped with plenty of features, including built-in calibration software, and a six-port USB hub.

Very accurate colors. Excellent gray-scale performance. Deep blacks. Six-port USB hub. Dual DisplayPort connections. Integrated calibration software.

Expensive. Lacks auto-rotate support.

Conclusion Outstanding gray-scale reproduction and color accuracy are the hallmark of any professional-grade monitor, and the HP DreamColor Z27x delivers on both fronts. But it doesn't stop there. With its 1.07-billion-color DreamColor engine,...

HP z27x Review


The HP z27x is loaded with features. Beyond the usual features like a USB hub and multiple inputs it offers multiple color space support for AdobeRGB, DCI, and even Rec. 2020. It goes well beyond this by offering the ability to self-calibrate any of...

HP Dreamcolor Z27x G2 Studio review: Made for content creators


For content creators sometimes a regular monitor just isn't enough. The HP Dreamcolor Z27x G2 Studio was made for content creators in mind.

Adjustability options are great ; Display is accurate and calibrated for content creators ; Pretty simple to use ; Added buttons on bezel are convenient ; Integrated KVM Switch

Heavy and bulky ; Super pricey, not for the average consumer

Are you looking for a really nice 2K monitor for your home setup? The HP Dreamcolor Z27x G2 is overkill for you. On the other hand, if you’re a professional videographer, animator, or photographer who needs a wide color gamut and a very accurate...

HP Z27x Dreamcolor Professional Display Review


HP's new Z27x DreamColor supports all the important color gamuts and carries some distinctly unique features. This screen simply blows us away.

Internal calibration engine, super-accurate, support for DCI and Rec.2020 (partial) gamuts, solid build quality, terrific value

Would be even better as a 32-inch screen, no OSD calibration options

At this price point, there is no other monitor that is as accurate or capable as the HP Z27x. We expect to see it populating film editing bays everywhere since nothing else even comes close for less than five figures.

HP DreamColor Z27x G2 review: Worth the lack of 4K support?


A screen perfectly tuned to the DCI-P3 colour space, but make sure the lack of 4K won't be a future problem

If you work in the film industry, the HP DreamColor Z27x G2 is an excellent choice. Considering the image quality, the ease of use and its sheer flexibility, the only reason you’d regret buying this monitor is if you move to a 4K workflow two years...

HP DreamColor Z27x professional LCD monitor review


The HP DreamColor Z27x is a high-performance 2.5K monitor suited to some professional applications. As a company HP is entrenched in Windows, where the panel worked better than with the graphic designer’s traditional choice of Mac OS. For any user...

Amazingly Good


I never used a professional level monitor before and had what I thought were higher end monitors in the past. I was/still am struck by the clarity and richness of the monitor. When researching it was between this and an Asus that was about $400 less...

This is an amazing monitor. Rich colors, clear, no dead/partial pixels. If you are thinking of moving up from consumer grade to 'pro' grade this is THE monitor to get. Picture, web pages, etc., look great and even stunning but even games aren't...

Price, but you do really get your money's worth. When I see a "normal" monitor's display now, I cringe to think about what I was staring at all those years

Big but lots of aliasing


I was given this monitor to test by our company's IT department and it fell far short of expectations. I am a motion graphics animator for them and a professional photographer outside of my full time job. The only way to connect this monitor to my...

Don't believe the trolls


This monitor isn't perfect. But the claims made about how bad this unit is are simply overblown. We have or had Eizos, Ikegamis, JVCs, NECS FSI and Boland. Only he FSIsa re better with uniformity, but they have a blue cast in the blacks. The pictures...

Worst "Professional" product available


I'm changing my review from 2 to 1 star. I have returned the monitor 9 times with HP and EVERY single unit had an issue. The most prominent being extremely bad uniformity, washed out blacks, sharpening artifacts, color shift based on the screen's...
