Conclusion: HP’s Pavilion 27xi is an affordable 27-inch, full HD display. It looks good sitting on your desk, and image quality on the panel itself will please all but the most demanding users. With no height adjustment on the stand and the lack of VESA mounting capability, the ergonomics are lacking a bit.
Pros: Very good image quality, Accurate color rendition, Sharp looking chassis
Cons: Limited stand adjustment, No VESA mounts on back; can't be mounted on an ergonomic stand, No DisplayPort
