The base of the monitor is made of metal. The HP OMEN 27i is therefore very safe on the desk. Even if you hit the monitor in the heat of battle, it won’t slip an inch.
The monitor is adjustable in height and can be tilted slightly forwards and backwards. Essentially, the design of this monitor is quite simple.
Almost the entire monitor is matte black and the Omen letters on the back have a chic chrome look. So also ideal for the office. However, if you want it a little more unusual, you can activate the integrated lighting.
The monitor offers two individually controllable lighting zones: a large one at the back and a smaller one at the front. Lighting modes can be adjusted accordingly via the OMEN Command Center.
The screen edges are pleasantly narrow. Only the bottom edge is slightly larger and has a small OMEN inscription.
The power button and a small joystick for navigating the menu later are located on the bottom right of the back of the screen when viewed from the front.
The position takes some getting used to, as the keys are still quite far from the edge and you have to reach further around the screen than you are used to with other models.
The 2560 x 1440 pixels display all content razor-sharp on 27 inches. In our opinion, this combination is still the sweet spot for gamers.
But in addition to the high resolution, the HP OMEN 27i monitor also has a few highlights to offer.
Thanks to the fast refresh rate of up to 165 Hertz (via overdrive), hectic gaming situations are clearly displayed and the short response time, which is around 4 milliseconds in practice, is slightly higher than the advertised 1 ms, and guarantees a streak-free gaming experience.
The monitor scores with rich and realistic colors. The sRGB color space is almost completely covered and the AdobeRGB color space is almost 90 percent covered.
For a gaming monitor, that’s a very good result. Slight weaknesses are revealed in the backlight of the display. With a maximum brightness of just over 350 cd/m², the monitor has to admit defeat to some competitors.
Contrasts are generally well displayed, but the monitor does not reach top values here either. The overall picture is rounded off by support for AMD’s FreeSync technology and G-Sync compatibility.
This synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the graphics card’s image type, which can be useful in case of image tearing. All connections are located on the back of the HP OMEN 27i monitor.
An HDMI input (2.0), a DisplayPort (1.2) and a 3.5mm audio jack are routed from the front to the right. In addition, three USB ports face to the left.

The HP OMEN 27i makes a high-quality impression. The openings are even and the housing does not creak even under pressure. When the lighting is off, the monitor looks simple and elegant.
If desired, it can also be a colorful eye-catcher. This monitor has two strong points: the fast refresh rate and the realistic color reproduction.
On the other hand, there are small weaknesses in the contrasts and the only average lighting. The three extra USB ports are a nice extra. We would have liked to have had an HDMI input.
