Hazro HZ27WC 8-Bit 27" IPS Monitor guru thoughts?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So tomorrow I'm going to be buying a new monitor. I currently have a 24" view sonic but I fancy something a bit better. I've been looking at the Hazro 27" IPS.

I was wondering if anyone on OCN had heard anything about these monitors?
Will I get input lag making it useless for games?
Also, i could get a glass fronted one for £400 (£40 extra) IS it worth the extra money?

Thanks.

I actually bought one for a friend of mine who works in design, and for the price it's a fantastic monitor.

Believe it or not, it's exactly the same S-IPS panel that apple use in their cinema display, and which dell use in the U2711 (made by LG).

Don't get me wrong, I don't think the overall image quality is comparable to the two above, with backlight uniformity in question more than anything, but for the price difference it's easy to overlook that.

A glass screen will make the screen appear more vibrant I suppose, but if there are a lot of lights or windows then it will act as a mirror.

So would you say in your opinion it's a better buy at the price point then say a big TN panel screen?

+rep for the info btw

I was just playing around with this monitor and I must say the picture quality and everytging in that sense is excellent, however, there a few things that I found to be quite annoying. I think it's advertised by hazro that it supports HDCP, unfortunatly that is incorrect. The operating system either recognizes the monitor as generic or a syncmaster and Nvidia control panel doesnt even recognize the monitor and there quite a few setting's that are not avaiable to change like the resolution, refresh rate etc. Dont get me wrong the monitor looks brilliant and i've played a few games on and its amazing but still issues with OS And GPU support.
Just a heads up

Do a quick google search regarding the things i mentioned.

Sorry about any typo's, using my phone.
