HP announces a 27-inch 5K display alongside six other monitorsBy Tim Schiesser 7 comments
At CES 2015, HP has announced a whopping seven monitors, including a brand new flagship 27-inch model with a monster 5K (5120 x 2880) resolution that matches the latest Retina iMac.
Said flagship model is the HP Z27q, which comes with a 10-bit IPS display with 99% coverage of the Adobe RGB gamut. There's four USB 3.0 ports on-board, and the display is driven via two DisplayPort 1.2 connectors. Perhaps the best aspect of the Z27q, though, is the price, with HP selling it for just $1,299.99: significantly less than Dell's 5K UltraSharp panel.
Two of the other monitors announced today - the Z24s and Z27s - are 23.6- and 27-inch IPS Ultra HD models respectively that cover the sRGB spectrum. Both come with tilt, pivot, swivel and height adjustable stands, and both support multiple inputs including HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2. The Z24s will retail for $549 while the larger Z27s will set you back $749.
Three other displays are curved. The HP Pavilion 27c Curved Display is a 27-inch 1080p VA monitor with a gentle curve, flanked by two four-watt speakers, retailing for $400. The EliteDisplay 270c is also a curved 27-inch 1080p model, but with a better IPS display and currently no price tag. The final curved display is the 34-inch Z34c, which features an ultra-wide 3440 x 1440 resolution VA panel with two six-watt speakers and a $999 price tag.
The final display announced by HP is the Zvr 23.6" Virtual Reality Display. Targeted at commercial users, the display tracks head movements and creates real-time 3D experiences enhanced by 3D glasses. Although the monitor currently has no price, we do know it features a 1080p TN panel as well as DVI and DisplayPort inputs.
