27" HP 27xq gaming monitor benchmarks: color, brightness, price response, input and full specs review

For graphics color quality, the HP 27xq has an excellent color depth of 8 -bit, resulting in smoother gradients and more accurate colors. For the extremely fast frame rates, the HP 27xq has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. The monitor has a VESA mount. With the AMD FreeSync support, this monitor is compatible with both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. HP 27xq has a total input lag of 10 ms, which is excellent among the competition. The HP 27xq is a relatively new monitor. In terms of pixel density, the HP 27xq has an excellent density of 109 pixels-per-inch, resulting in sharper text and picture quality. For the average response rate, the HP 27xq scores 5 ms, which ensures effective synchronization with the high refresh rate. The HP 27xq has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. The minimum response rate of HP 27xq is 1 ms, which is eliminates ghosting effects. The brightness of HP 27xq is lower than other monitors. The monitor has an unimpressive contrast ratio of 1000 : 1. Graphically demanding games may cause frame drops outside the adative refresh rate of 50 Hz. The monitor uses a TN panel which suffers from color shifting when viewed from horizontal and vertical angles and has slightly washed colors compared to IPS and VA panels.
