2 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor with Short Life

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: This monitor has a great display. It is reflective, but it isn't that bothersome. The colors don't appear washed out.

Cons: After about a year and a half, it started dying randomly and would require replugging to start. After two and a half years, it won't come on at all. I really didn't use it much in that time, so the actual life is probably quite a bit shorter with continuous use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat if you find it at a good price

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: Monitor is bright, stylish and has plenty of options for connectivity. I got this from a box retailer for $204 and am very happy with it. Colors are spot on and I feel like I can edit photos to better realism with it. I have an older HP 23" LCD that runs on CFL and has about 4400 hours on it. Brightness vs. the two is dramatic as are the colors. If you find this in the $200 range just get it. Great monitor.

Cons: The button/menu system takes some getting used too

Other Thoughts: Overall a good buy for an IPS panel.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor!

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: First of all let me say I purchased this monitor for $200 from office depot. Besides price it has a great sharp and vivid picture. Using it as my main monitor accompanied by an older 720p monitor. Also personally I love the cabinet in silver and a dash of black!

Cons: None so far

4 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: Nice looking and deep colors. Reflection could be an issue. Great monitor and no problems over 6 months. Only concern was not above 1080.

Looks great and glad I went with it until all the 4000k stuff settles.

Cons: All stands wobble I quess.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor for the 160 I paid for it. Would consider waiting for 1440 p plus if not needed now.

1 out of 5 eggsPretty / short life

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: Good appearance - almost Apple-like to go with my Mac Mini
Good color rendition
Would make a good (if expensive) IKEA furniture prop!

Cons: Dead in 18 months!
When waking up from sleep, it had been requiring me to power it off & on again for maybe 6 months. Today it's just dead (on 3 different computers). The power light lights up when plugged in, but that all.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Quality for Value

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: I received this as a gift when it was $160.00 off for a 72 hour sale.

The quality and size is unparalleled for the price. I was curious just how much of an upgrade this would be from a 23" monitor but I was blown away.

The image quality is bright and sharp, it's so good that it lets me spot imperfections in so called "hi-def" PC games.

Haven't noticed any "ghosting" either despite the 7ms delay.

Cons: No monitor adjustments aside from slight tilting, but you can't ask for that with the price range. The glossy screen might bother some people but I haven't noticed any problems with glare.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-Up

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: So far it's had Perfect Performance, 100%. Got it back in February, 8 months later its still running like the day it was first turned on.!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Considering other reviews with less-than-stellar performance, I have to say that I've had no trouble with mine. But, I only use it at its native hd resolution and refresh.
Of course there are going to be some lemons but, when the amounts of a popular model like this are sold you don't get much input from the majority who never have even a single issue with theirs. That's why I came back to do an additional review. Really like mine a lot.

1 out of 5 eggsI bought this mainly as a PC & console gaming monitor but was disappointed.

This review is from: HP Pavilion 27xi Silver / Black 27" 7ms IPS HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 10,000,000:1

Pros: - slim
- light weight
- doesn't get burning hot, only warm
- 27" is noticeably a lot bigger compared to 19"

Cons: - weak color reproduction, low color saturation
- no color saturation option
- power cable input in back of monitor gets loose causing monitor to turn off
- reflective screen (liquid crystal display)
- no speakers or headphone jack input
- 7ms for gaming isn't as good as 5ms and below

I bought this mainly as a PC & console gaming monitor but was disappointed. I thought since this monitor costs a little more than others that it would better but I was wrong. Also the first monitor I received came with couple of dead pixels (noticeable in dark colors), second one didn't but all the issues I mention below made me return this monitor.

Other Thoughts: These are my main problems with this monitor

1. No color saturation option

I think most monitors always have a color saturation option, this monitor doesn't.

I have an old AOC 720p 19" monitor that has a color saturation option with a slide bar where it let's you change the image color from grey-scale to intensely colorful. The only color options this HP monitor offers are presets called warm, cool, standard, and custom (RGB). Even with the custom RGB (red, green, blue) mode all maxed out, the colors still seem lacking and unimpressive compared to what my AOC 19" monitor can do.

The only way to increase the color saturation to almost look like my AOC 19" on this HP monitor is to use an image preset mode called photo. The problem is you can't edit the color saturation and the colors are it's still unimpressive for the amount of money that this monitor costs. Also when playing GTA V during a sunset while using this photo preset mode there's this annoying purple outline around some of the clouds, roads and other objects. I think it's because this HP monitor can't reproduce a certain shade of the color grey properly when using this mode. This purple outline problem doesn't happen with my AOC 19" monitor even with the color saturation maxed out.

2. Reflective screen (liquid crystal display)

If any of your walls or objects have any type of light bouncing off of them you will see their distracting and annoying reflections on this HP monitor's screen. You'll have to play in a completely dark room to enjoy using it.I have a NEC MultiSync 90GX2 monitor that has a reflective screen that gives clear sharp images and great colors, so I bought this HP monitor knowing it had a reflective screen thinking that would somehow give the same image quality as my NEC monitor and improve the image quality over monitors with the matte anti-glare coating screens but I was wrong. The anti-glare screens look just as good (depending on the monitor) as liquid crystal displays without the reflections.

3. No speakers or headphone jack input

If you're using a monitor for PC & console gaming you should get a monitor with speakers. It's way more convenient to plug in your speaker system (3.mm cable) to the headphone jack of the monitor and get audio from HDMI instead of buying RCA audio adapters for your console. Since consoles don't have audio options like equalizers, you can manipulate the audio through your monitors audio settings. Most monitors with speakers let you adjust trebble, bass, ect.

4. 7ms on/off response

I do notice more ghosting than usual compared to monitors with less ms time when playing games.

After using different monitors it seems the best options for gaming are 5ms to 1ms.
