It's hard to find any competitors with similar specifications. The vast majority of 1440p medium refresh IPS monitors start at $300+, so getting something for less than that is a great price to begin with. Normally, what you see in this price range are curved VA panels which perform a lot worse, cheaper TN options, or the occasional older model like the Pixio PX277 Prime. We think the HP X27q is a better option than all of these, it brings a new wave of affordable but solid competition to the 1440p market.
IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)
