Review HP OMEN 27i monitor: QHD res(2560 x 1440),165Hz refresh rate,1ms response time…

The HP OMEN 27i is a high-quality game monitor. It has an exceptional response time(1ms), so there is very little blurring behind fast-moving objects. It also has an excellent low input delay for a responsive gaming experience and supports FreeSync variable update frequency technology. On the other hand, this monitor is not a great choice for night games, as it has a low contrast ratio and poor black uniformity.HP OMEN 27i

The HP OMEN 27i is a outstanding gaming monitor. It has an exceptional response time, resulting in clear movement during the game, as well as low input delay for a responsive gaming experience. Although it supports AMD FreeSync technology natively, it is also certified for NVIDIA G-SYNC-compatible technology. It’s well built, with a solid metal support that supports it well, easily accessible inputs and mewed RGB lighting. The 27-” 1440p display is ideal for multitasking and gaming, and the IPS panel offers wide viewing angles and an exceptional range of SDR colours. Unfortunately, the stand has a disappointing ergonomics, and like all IPS monitors, it has a low contrast ratio, so blacks look gray in a dark room. It’s also not very accurate, so media creators might prefer to look elsewhere.HP OMEN 27i

“Enjoy a speedy 165Hz refresh rate while silencing choppy gameplay permanently, with a 1ms response time in overdrive.”

The HP OMEN 27i is a perfect monitor for most uses, but it’s better suited for gaming. The high maximum brightness and good reflex management make it a good choice for the office. It has exceptional response times, low input delay and supports FreeSync, ideal for gaming. On the other hand, the low contrast ratio and disappointing out-of-the-box accuracy make it just a decent choice for media or content creators.
The HP OMEN 27i is a good monitor for office use. The 27th” 1440p display is ideal for multitasking. It has good peak brightness and good reflection management, so the glow should not be a problem. The image is still accurate when viewed at an angle, so you can easily share your screen with someone else. Unfortunately, the support has a limited range of motion, so it may be difficult to place it in an ideal display position.HP OMEN 27i

HP OMEN 27i is a decent media-building monitor. The large high-resolution display makes it easier to see more of your work at once, and wide viewing angles are ideal for sharing your screen with customers. It has excellent grey uniformity and excellent gradient handling, with almost no noticeable band. Unfortunately, it has a disappointing accuracy outside the box, which can be a problem for some content creators.HP OMEN 27i The HP OMEN 27i is extremely well built. The support is solid, metal, and supports the monitor well. The screen is made of good quality plastic, and we do not notice any gaps or loose panels. The high refresh rate of this monitor is ideal for gaming or desktop use. HP OMEN 27i supports FreeSync variable update rate technology, but is also NVIDIA certified to work with its G-SYNC-compatible technology. Although FreeSync works on HDMI and DisplayPort, NVIDIA’s G-SYNC-compatible mode only works through DisplayPort with this monitor. HP OMEN 27i price $499.99. Photo:HP
