Conclusion: The Hanns·G HZ281HPB performed spectacularly during the review process. The screen looks amazing. Its so huge that it dwarfs my 22 inch 1080p monitor. The 1920x1200 resolution really improves how I can work with various programming tools and modeling tools that I use on a regular basis. Autodesk Revit, 3DS Max, and Inventor, Microsoft Visual Studio, and other similar tools have more than enough viewing real-estate.
Pros: Large 27.5-inch screen, Bright and immersive LCD panel, 1920x1200 resolution, Glossy black frame is sturdy, tilts back, Inputs for VGA, DVI, HDMI, and Audio, Good menu system, Economical price
Cons: Lacks forward Tilt, height Adjust, Button controls are hard to use, Speakers lack deep bass, Pixel return policy, Marketed as 28" monitor
Excerpt: Even though the 27.5in Hanns-G HZ281HPB is an older monitor – still available in retail channels though – it also happens to be very stylish with its gloss black and short, thick pedestal that sits out of the way. The support offers little in the way of flexibility though, it tilts a bit and that’s it. See also: Group test: what's the best display?
