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: E ven though the 27.5in Hanns-G HZ281HPB is the oldest monitor here – still available in retail channels though – it also happens to be one of the more 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.
Big screen, stylish, good tonal range, very bright display, fast refresh rate, good sRGB and Adobe RGB coverage, 1, 920 x 1, 200 resolution
Slightly warm display, some unevenness at the top of the screen, quite bulky at the back, stand lacks flexibility

Excerpt: Das Display besitzt zwei digitale Anschlüsse (DVI mit HDCP, HDMI) und kann damit auch Full-HD-Material von externen Quellen, zum Beispiel Blu-ray-Playern, verlustfrei abspielen. Für ältere PCs bietet es dazu eine analoge VGA-Schnittstelle. Als Reaktionszeit gibt Hanns.G drei Millisekunden an, die Helligkeit soll bei 400 Candela pro Quadratmeter liegen. Boxen sind beim 28-Zöller ebenfalls verbaut.
