HP has just released the Omen 27c QHD, a brand new curved gaming monitor. This display was designed with long gaming sessions in mind, with a wide range of colors, high brightness, a blue light filter, and a 240Hz refresh rate.
“It’s unrivaled, and you can be as well.” “We designed this monitor for the most dedicated players who are committed to exploring every nook and cranny of their game,” said Eric Galyean, HP’s NPI lead.
In addition to being a PC monitor, HP designed the Omen 27c to work with a variety of consoles, allowing users to experience gaming on a curved screen. The Omen 27c is ready to use with an HDMI cable with Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and Playstation 5.
HP designed this monitor for a wide range of games, giving it excellent visuals as well as a fast refresh rate. Omen 27c has a 1000R curvature curved VA panel. The curve is unmistakable, and HP claims that it conforms to the natural shape of the eye. This should enable longer gaming sessions without giving you a headache.
The display is EyeSafe certified, in addition to having a gentle curve. It has a high-energy blue light filter that reduces eye strain without sacrificing color quality. Omen 27c is an industry first for 1000R curved monitors with EyeSafe certification, paving the way for monitors that are optimized not only for gameplay but also for minimizing eye fatigue.
The 27-inch VA panel has a Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440) and a contrast ratio of 3000:1. HP claims that this will bring out three times as many blacks, making it easier to spot enemies in the dark. The display is VESA-certified and has a maximum brightness of 450 nits with HDR enabled and 400 without. All of this should result in a wide color gamut, strong contrasts, vibrant colors, and deep shadows. Shadow vision technology was also used by HP to brighten darker scenes without making them look washed out.
Omen 27c has a quick response time, especially for a curved monitor. It has a refresh rate of 240Hz and a response time of 1ms. This makes it ideal for first-person shooters and other fast-paced games where the display must be quick and accurate. Furthermore, it makes use of AMD FreeSync Premium Pro to ensure low latency and improved gaming performance. Although FreeSync is an AMD technology, it is also compatible with Nvidia graphics cards.
The monitor has three very thin bezels on the outside and a thicker bottom bezel. It has a simple, elegant design that complements HP’s Omen desktop computer line. The stand can be adjusted in height and has standard VESA mounting. Unfortunately, it cannot swivel or pivot, but it does have a wide 178-degree viewing angle to compensate.
The monitor costs $530 and can be purchased directly from HP. Curved monitors aren’t for everyone, but it appears that HP struck a good balance with the Omen 27c, prioritizing both pure gaming power and ease of use in equal measure.
