Quick OverviewModel - HP X27i
Ports & Slots
Take on the competition by pairing the HP X27i 27" 16:9 FreeSync 2K IPS Gaming Monitor with a powerful graphics card, so you can catch every detail in your fast-action games. Designed primarily for high-end gaming, this 27" In-Plane Switching (IPS) monitor supports 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution and has a 144 Hz refresh rate with a 4 ms response time, providing liquid smooth graphics at high frame rates. Meanwhile, AMD FreeSync technology helps remove stuttering delays and screen tearing by dynamically adapting the display's refresh rate to variable frame rates. Additional features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, and 350 cd/m² brightness for clear, vivid images and videos. HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs are available for connecting to your system, and an HDMI cable is included. With its wide 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, you view the screen from almost any position. The x27i also has ambient lighting that casts a glow onto the base and stand. It can be customized match your environment or what's on screen, to help diffuse the display's bright light and help reduce eye fatigue. The stand allows you to adjust the screen's height, swivel, and tilt to fit your comfort or you can use the VESA mounting holes to attach the monitor to a wall or monitor arm for added versatility.
This 27" IPS monitor supports 2560 x 1440 resolution, delivering crisp, clear images, videos, and games.
AMD's FreeSync Technology allows for communication between the graphics card and a monitor with FreeSync support. Having this communication enables the monitor to dynamically adjust its refresh rate to the frame rate being output by the graphics card, thereby greatly reducing tearing, stuttering, and other artifacts
The 144 Hz refresh rate delivers smooth frame rates for fast-action games, allowing you to take in the details.
Enjoy your fast-action gaming experience with crisp, fluid graphics that have minimal motion blur.
The X27i gaming monitor features HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs and includes an HDMI cable.
Adjust the height, tilt, swivel, and rotation of the monitor to best suit your preferences. Alternatively, you can use the VESA-mounting holes to connect it to a wall, compatible monitor arm, or multi-monitor stand. The x27i also has ambient lighting that can be customized match your environment or what's on screen to help diffuse the display's bright light and help reduce eye fatigue.
In addition to having adjustable height, tilt, and swivel, this display is VESA mountable with 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, allowing you to mount the screen on a wall, an arm, or a multi-screen pedestal.

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
