Last year HP released a behemoth of a screen with its 32-inch QHD ENVY display. This year, the size comes down a bit due to customer feedback, but the resolution is bumped to an impressive 4K resolution while still hitting an affordable price tag of $499.
The brand new HP ENVY 27 features dual HDMI ports, Display Port, and an optional USB Type-C port with video and power delivery along with included cables.
The display itself sports 4K 3840x2160 resolution with IPS panel technology and a 178-degree viewing angle. There is also an impressive 99% sRGB color gamut, low Blue Light settings for Night and Reading usage, and AMD FreeSync technology.

HP also knows consumers want thin bezels so the ENVY sports 6mm bezels around a display that is only 15mm thick. They also redesigned the stand to make the screen look like it's "floating."
While not quite as impressive as my HP Spectre 32-inch LED display the ENVY line certainly steps it up a notch.
Availability should start later this month for select markets with a starting price of $449 for the non-USB Type-C variant. Tossing in Type-C will bump the price to $499.
