HP embraces Quantum Dot tech with new Pavilion 27 display

As CES 2019 gets started this week, HP has a trio of new Pavilion monitors ready to hit the market, including its first Quantum Dot on Glass display.

Dubbed the Pavilion 27 Quantum Dot, HP says the new monitor will deliver more vibrant colors and increased clarity across a "Cinema-quality" display. That's combined with a 27-inch screen that comes packed in HP's thinnest display ever made, coming in at 6.5mm thin.

Getting down to brass tacks, the Pavilion 27 Quantum Dot comes with ultra-thin bezels on three of its sides, along with a 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution running at 60Hz, HDR support, and a response time ranging between 5ms and 14ms. Gamers will also get access to AMD FreeSync tech with a compatible Radeon graphics card, eliminating screen tearing in games.

As for ports, you're looking at one DisplayPort 1.4 input, one HDMI, one USB Type-C, and two USB 3.0 Type-A ports.

While the Pavilion 27 Quantum Dot leads HP's new line of monitors, it also has a couple of additional, more traditional models on offer. First up is a Pavilion 27 model with a 1080p resolution running at 60Hz. Like its Quantum Dot sibling, the standard Pavilion 27 also features tiny bezels on three sides and AMD FreeSync. Additionally, the Pavilion 27 packs an integrated HP Privacy camera that pops up from the top of the display, enabling the microphone and camera only when in use.

Rounding things out is the Pavilion 32 QHD, a 32-inch panel coming in at a QHD resolution running at 60Hz. Once again, AMD FreeSync is on board here, along with the same port selection available on the Pavilion 27 Quantum Dot.

The HP Pavilion 27 Quantum Dot and Pavilion 27 are expected to launch in March for $400 and $330, respectively. The Pavilion 32 QHD is expected to launch in June for $380.
