In a sea of displays, it’s always interesting when a new brand such as Hazro pops its head above the parapet. Will it be shot down or will it be a successful debut on TrustedReviews.com? The company has four displays in its line up, at 23in, 24in, 26in and 30in and all are aimed at the professional market. The first three are all 1,920 x 1,200 resolution displays, while the third is naturally a 2,560 x 1,600 model. The one we have in our sights today is the HZ26W – the 26in model.


Hazro has some serious competition as previously we’ve looked at the Dell 2707WFP, a 27in display that’s larger, yet costs about the same, and the NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi, which is the same size and much more expensive, but does boast a very good picture.

The Hazro design is, dare I say it Mac-like, with a fuss free smooth housing. The curves at the top and bottom are offset by the edges at the sides, and there are no buttons to spoil the effect. The only feature is the Hazro logo at the bottom, which to my eyes is visually rather weak, though that could be put down to unfamiliarity.


Hazro makes much of the fact that its design has no vents to spoil the appearance of the external housing, with the aluminium frame instead dissipating the heat. Indeed, the sides of the display are permanently warm to the touch during operation. This doesn’t cause any issues when on a desk but could do if you were slotting it in somewhere tightly.

There are four 100mm x 100mm Vesa mounting holes at the rear and the top of the stand has a carry handle, which when you need to move it, is actually very useful indeed. The stand is an angular and square affair that tapers down at the front, which looks good. However, it doesn’t have any means of rotation aside from picking it up and putting it down again, and there’s no height adjustment or pivot. These are partly what you’ll pay extra for on the NEC.


The OSD controls are all housed in a control section underneath and set back from the bottom bezel, with a smooth black finish and offering touch sensitive controls.


Unusually, the power supply isn’t built in; instead, there’s an external power brick, which is strange for a monitor this size. This means you have to have an extra block hanging around on the floor.
