HP at CES 2018: New F-Series 1080p FreeSync Monitors from $99, up to 27-Inchesby Joe Shields on January 8, 2018 3:02 AM EST
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.
