The price of the HP X27q, a 27-inch IPS gaming monitor with a 2.5K native resolution and 165 Hz refresh rate, has been lowered on Amazon US. The HP X27q, which is currently 30% off, also features 400 nits of peak brightness, a movable stand, and your choice of DisplayPort or HDMI connectors.
The price of the 27-inch gaming monitor from HP, the HP X27q, has been reduced by almost a third on Amazon US. The HP X27q uses an IPS panel with HDR 400 compatibility and a maximum brightness of 400 nits, which should not be mistaken for the X27 or X27qc. The game monitor operates natively at QHD, sometimes referred to as 2.5K or 1440p, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, as its name implies. The HP X27q also features a 165 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms GtG reaction times when overdrive is turned on.
The monitor also has a single HDMI 2.0 port, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and a VESA 100 x 100 mm mount. Despite lacking a dedicated webcam and USB hub, the monitor has an adjustable height, pivot, and tilt stand and supports AMD FreeSync Premium to reduce image tearing when gaming. HP asserts that the X27q also supports 99% of the sRGB color space; however, the firm has not disclosed the coverage of any more color spaces.
Currently, Amazon US is providing a 30% discount on the HP X27q, bringing the price down from US$299.99 to US$209.99 and saving you US$90. The retailer, as usual, has not disclosed when the sale expires or whether there are any purchasing limitations, such as one unit per order. The Amazon Warehouse program also offers even bigger savings, with one model going for less than $200 USD. Please keep in mind that these are for used or open-box models, not brand-new ones.
