HP Omen 27u could be an excellent PC and console gaming monitor

CES 2022 is indeed a display of various shapes, sizes and use cases. We have seen the world’s first 4k 240Hz gaming monitor and some crazy tricks of Samsung’s curved screen. LG brings the largest and smallest OLED gaming TV to the market. Now that HP has launched a new Omen gaming monitor, it seems that 4k is finally on the menu.

The new HP Omen 27u is the latest product in the company’s 27-inch gaming monitor series. The previous 27i model managed QHD resolution at 165 Hz, a bit like the HP Omen 25i gaming monitor we reviewed. The new model supports 4k UHD (3840 x 2160), but has a 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 millisecond response time. The brightness is slightly increased to 450 nits, which should look rich under the HDR function. There are two USB A ports, and even a built-in USB C, which is a very popular symbol of the times.
