Hanns.G HZ281HPB – monitor of the month (11/2010)

This month’s ‘monitor of the month’ accolade goes to a truly unbelievable bargain from Hanns.G. The HannsG HZ281HPB is a behemoth of a monitor, featuring a massive 27.5 inch screen, integrated speakers and HDMI. Another pleasant surprise is that the HZ281HPB features a 16:10 aspect ratio and ‘better than HD’ resolution of 1920×1200; a rarity in an affordable monitor these days. This is coupled with high brightness and a rapid response time that makes for a truly immersive experience that can really draw you into your favourite game and movie titles. The most impressive part of all of this is the price of the monitor which really is shockingly low at the moment. An absolute bargain, it has to be said.
