HP ups monitor game with 4K, 5K, and curved displays

HP has just unveiled a raft of new high-resolution monitors at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

While HP is no stranger to computer monitors, this is still the first time the company has launched a 5K resolution model, likely looking to rival Apple’s new iMac.

The Z27q measures up at 27-inches with a 5K resolution that works out at a 218 pixels-per-inch density – not bad for a screen that sits just 20-inches away from your retinas.

It uses an aspect ratio of 16:9, rocks four USB 3.0 ports, and costs a hefty $1299 (£850-ish), available from March.

Next up are two new 4K models, the Z24s and Z27s – both of which tout a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The former measures up at 23.8-inches corner-to-corner, while the latter comes in at a slightly more substantial 27-inches.

This equates to pixel densities of 185 pixels-per-inch and 163 pixels-per-inch respectively.

Again, these models both come packing four USB 3.0 ports, with a bevy of other inputs on offer too including HDMI and Mini DisplayPort.

As far as pricing is concerned, you’re looking at $549 (£360) for the Z24s, available April, with the Z27s going on sale later this month at $749 (£490).

Last but not least is a new curved display from HP –  a 34-inch bendy-vision monitor that boasts a 3440 x 1440 resolution, just shy of 4K proper.

It also makes use of a 12:9 aspect ratio, and proffers reduced glare, built-in speakers, and a price-tag of $999 (£653), starting April.
