LAS VEGAS, NV — HP is also releasing new monitors ranging from 21.5-inches up to 27-inches in FHD (1920x1080) resolution. The backlit IPS LED has an ultra-thin bezel, enabling what HP calls a 'micro-edge display', around the top and left and right sides while the bottom is a bit thicker. The Freesync panels give users 178° viewing angles on its non-reflective anti-glare panel. HP says the new monitors offer modern designs without the premium price tag.

The monitor is able to reproduce 72% of the NTSC color gamut, has a typical brightness of 300 nits, and contrast ratios of 1000:1 static and 10M:1 dynamic. Connectivity on the 22-24-inch models includes a single VGA and HDMI adapter while the larger 25-inch and 27-inch monitors add an additional HDMI port totaling 2. All monitors do have HDCP support. The f series displays all have a 75 Hz refresh rate and responses times are at 5ms GtG and 14ms GtG (typical) and 28ms GtG maximum which should allow for a ghost-free gaming experience.

The exterior colors are offered in Jet Black and White which will allow it to blend in with many home decors. The micro-edge display, 3.5mm of inactive black space, and the thin design give the monitors a contemporary look and can be a good choice for multiple display setups where thin bezels are key adding to the immersion factor.

    Refresh Rate Up to 75 Hz minus AMD FreeSync = 30-35-37.5Hz?

    Full HD at 27", enjoy your fist-sized pixels :-P

    Can anyone enlighten me for who such a screen would be nice?
  • T1beriu - Monday, January 8, 2018 - link

    For somebody that uses it from 2-3 feet away or other applications where a high dpi is unnecessary.

    Your older boss with the bad eyesight and the stubborn refusal to wear glasses. Good luck convincing him not to run it at 1280x1024 and then complaining that all your software has graphics stretched weirdly out of shape.

    For business cases, where high DPI doesn't really matter, but cost does.
    For those who do not sit close to their screens.
    For people with less-than-great eyesight.
    Lots of people. Just because a product doesn't suit you does not mean there isn't a market for the product. I'm confident HP will know their market better than any of us.

    Article contradicts itself - Smallest screen is 22 inches or 21 inches? (Also: That's what she said)
  • DanNeely - Monday, January 8, 2018 - link

    Blame marketing. 21.5" gets rounded up to 22"

    1440p should be the norm for monitors in the 22-27 range. I buy Acer G257HU by the half-dozen for my office, only monitor that makes sense from a price / spec standpoint for office use.

    72% of NTSC? Am I wrong, or is that less than sRGB from 1996?
