Thank you Allan!
It would have been great if you had also done a color calibration session and published the results. Maybe next time.

Hi, thank you for your review of the Z27xs G3. Did you also test its HDR mode? It has a Vesa DisplayHDR 600 certification. So I’m curious what peak brightness can be achieved.

Kind regards,

Hi Allan, thank you for your reply. The color depth is just one aspect of HDR, I meant especially the peak brightness. Is it possible that you do some measurements in HDR mode?


Thanks for the review… is the 14ms response time OK? Seems slow but maybe it’s fine?


In my opinion the response time is good. It is faster than my Dell U2723QE which is advertised with 8 ms. So you’ll be fine with it.


Just wondering… How can it be faster than a 8ms monitor?


Because fabric spec’s regarding the response time are not very accurate. I’ve got both displays and the HP is a little bit better as it comes to the transition times.


i bought the monitor and wondering how to do hardware calibration, i only have a mac mini to use it with though, so no luck with hp display centre.


The HDR peak brightness of the Z27xs is awesome for a DisplayHDR 600 monitor. It reaches as high as 900 nits! Its 16 zone local dimming implementation is also responsive and improves the contrast to some extend. What I also like about this display is that you can create your own color profile in Display Center and when you choose BT.2020 as the base the color gamut will be expanded resulting in burning reds and deep blues. Another nice bonus is that you can override the limited brightness of 266 nits in SDR to 350 nits when creating your own profile and then turn the brightness in the OSD to the max of 100 which results in the native peak brightness of the panel of 450 nits. Uniformity compensation is then likely not applicable anymore.

Your paragraph about linguicide is inaccurate. As of 2022 Hewlett Packard supports 11 languages for its monitors, no more, no less. Español is the term widely uses by both Americans and American companies, to refer to the vague umbrella of different Spanish languages found all throughout North America, South America, Europe, and very specific parts of Africa. Castilian is a word you’re only going to hear in Spain, in modern day it refers to peninsular spanish or the spanish dialect used in North Spain. Historically, it is used to refer to Old Spanish or early modern Spanish. It is sometimes used to refer to Spanish as a whole but only in the region that is now Spain. No one in the western hemisphere uses Castilian to refer to all of Spanish and its many dialects nor should they as there are much more Spanish speakers in the Western Hemisphere than there are in the Eastern Hemisphere. No one is trying to delete the word Castilian its still used in Spain but saying that it should be used as the general term for all of modern Spanish is just wrong because it hasn’t been used in that way outside of Spain for hundreds of years. Castilian just doesn’t mean all of Spanish anymore in modern times it is used to refer to Old Spanish and Espanol is used to refer to modern spanish in an extremely general sense when you only support 1 dialect of Spanish in your monitor settings for example. Every other tech company not from Spain does the same thing as does most of the planet.
