I picked up a new 27″ iMac a couple weeks ago when B&H dropped the price of the previous generation iMac by $300. Specifically, I bought the 3.2GHz Core i5 unit with a nVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1GB GPU. I paired the iMac with a HP ZR2740w 27″ IPS...

Most IT product categories tend to evolve rapidly, but developments in computer monitors have been decidedly slower. Although larger screens are slowly becoming more affordable, the most common resolution remains 1920x1080 pixels. Nonetheless, this...

Until cutting-edge UHD (3840×2160) displays hit the mainstream, most enthusiasts have to be content with QHD monitors at 2560x1440 pixels. In the lab today, we have two more 27-inch QHD screens: the ZR2740w from HP and the PB278Q from Asus. It seems...

High-resolution 27″ Display with 1 Billion Colors The HP ZR2740w is a 27″ LED backlit, nonglare display with an impressive screen real estate and native resolution of 2560×1440—a 16:9 aspect ratio. It has a slim .75″ black bezel with a clearly marked...

The ZR2740w made the environment in my office much nicer and the colors in front of my face much clearer. The resolution cranked all the way up still provides a clear, crisp view of the files, 3D models, graphics and...

The HP 27-inch ZR2740w IPS LED backlit LCD monitor is quite simply a beast! The standard-defying resolution and color accuracy are enough to turn heads. But the overall performance perches this one high above similar sized displays...

The ZR2740W had some good areas but some which left us a little disappointed. From a positive point of view, the default colour setup was pretty good apart from the overly high brightness which is easy to adjust.

The HP ZR2740w 27-inch backlit IPS Display Monitor is what I would call pure viewing pleasure. What you got here is a business grade IPS monitor with stunning viewing angles; outstanding image accuracy with ultra-wide 178° viewing angles and up to 10...

Perks Our Z1 came with CyberLink YouCam, an HD webcam! The ability to take a video of your computer is really handy. The webcam itself is nicely tucked away above the screen, with a tiny light to indicate function and recording. Troubleshooting is...

I love doing these comparisons. Moreover, I enjoy sitting two products next to each other that seemingly have no good reason to be compared. The mismatched bout between the burly Astro Gaming A40 Audio system and the humble SteelSeries V2 headset and mic...

The 17 monitors we reviewed range in price from £200 to more than £1,000, and are therefore also aimed at different market segments. If we look at which monitors have allround good performance with a reasonable price, a number of displays get our...

I tend to favor different display sizes and configurations depending on the task at hand. If I’m gaming at home, it’s usually on a 23- or 24-inch monitor running at 1920x1080. If I’m...

Almost 15 years ago I set up my first multiple monitor system, using a 17” and a 15” CRT. At that time it was a very uncommon setup, but now it seems that many people use multiple displays to manage their workspace. No matter how many displays you...

Waar andere productcategorieën razendsnelle ontwikkelingen kennen, lijkt de tijd bij monitoren de afgelopen jaren vooral stil te hebben gestaan. Grotere formaten worden langzaam maar zeker goedkoper, maar de resolutie blijft steken op 1920x1080 pixels....

Bien que les moniteurs QHD constituent encore un investissement non négligeable, ils sont en pleine démocratisation : les premiers modèles se trouvent à moins de 550 euros, sachant qu'on compte déjà 5 références aux alentours de 600 euros.Les deux...

Похоже, доступные QHD-мониторы, обладающие разрешением экрана 2560x1440 пикселей и диагональю от 27 дюймов, как никогда востребованы на рынке – по крайней мере, в настоящий момент. На такой диагонали, благодаря высокой плотности пикселей, подобные...

Протестированный монитор HP ZR2740W позволил мне более глубоко осознать специфику рынка подобного рода дисплеев и панелей, лежащих в их основе. Причем вывод из всего этого совсем не утешительный. Производители явно держат пользователей за дураков....

De prijzen van grotere monitoren blijven gestaag dalen, met als gevolg dat je nu al een 27-inch model op de kop tikt voor minder dan driehonderd euro. Toch kan je voor een scherm met diezelfde afmeting ook het vijfvoudige kwijt zijn. Wat zijn de...
