HP has three new, fancy conferencing displays on the way, all of which are currently slated to arrive in early January of 2022. They are the E24m G4 FHD USB-C Conferencing Monitor, HP E27m G4 QHD USB-C Conferencing Monitor, and HP E34m G4 WQHD Curved USB-C Conferencing Monitor. They're set to cost $399, $549, and $699, respectively.
The three monitors share a lot in the spec department. All three come equipped with five-megapixel tilt-adjustable webcams, dual mics, and front-firing speakers. Also, they're all equipped with USB-C for data transfer and laptop charging (up to 65W). And, each of the models is Zoom certified, meaning they are certifiably set for conference calls.
When it comes to differences, well, they're in the displays' names. The numbers in the model names represent the screens' inch counts. So the E24m FHD is a 24-inch, flat 1920x1080 monitor, the E27m QHD is a 27-inch, flat 2560x1440 monitor, and the E34m WQHD Curved is a 34-inch, curved 3440x1440 monitor. The two flat screens have a 16:9 aspect ratio, whereas the curved has a 21:9. Additionally, the flats have a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and cap at 300 nits of brightness, while the curved has a 3,000:1 ratio and goes up to 400 nits.
In other words, if you want the best panel out of these three options, prepare to spend $699. Otherwise, they're all similar in terms of hardware. They each feature a ton of ports (USB-C, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB-A, audio jack), are Energy Star certified, and support Windows Hello.
