HP introduces new lineup of 4K displays with USB-C
HP has a slate of new 4K displays on offer, along with a pretty intriguing new Thunderbolt dock aimed at professionals.
In addition to a refreshed lineup of laptops and mobile workstations today, HP has also rolled out a new slate of 4K displays. Included are the new EliteDisplay S270n, along with a trio of Z-series displays ranging from 27 to 43 inches.
Sitting on its own is the EliteDisplay S270n, a 27-inch IPS display with super thin bezels. The real draw here is that the S270n can be used with a single USB-C cable, which supplies video, data, and power. The panel supports a 4K native resolution at 60 Hz, a 14ms response time, and a 10000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
Backing up the EliteDisplay S270n are the new HP Z27, Z32, and Z43, with each display's size corresponding to its name. All three feature a 4K resolution at 60 Hz and 10-bit color for displaying more than 1 billion colors. Like the S270n, each of the Z-series displays can also be operated over a single USB-C connection for video, data, and power, HP says. Each features a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and response times come in at 8ms on the Z27 and Z43, and 14ms on the Z32. And for designers and engineers, HP says that the Z27 and Z32 come color calibrated from the factory.
Lastly, if you're looking to consolidate your connections and declutter your desk, HP is also launching its Thunderbolt Dock G2. The dock can provide power support up to two 4K displays, and, most intriguingly, it can be equipped with an optional audio conferencing module. All of that is accomplished through a single cable.
According to HP, the displays will be available starting today at $549 for the EliteDisplay S270n, $559 for the Z27, $899 for the Z32, and $799 for the Z43. The Thunderbolt Dock G2, on the other hand, is expected to be available starting in May with pricing yet to be determined.
