Lenovo has been launching some great monitors in their ThinkVision monitor series. These monitors are specifically built for office use and the ThinkVision P27h-10 is a 27-inch 16:9 wide monitor which can connect to your system via USB Type-C. Let us discuss more about the monitor in this review.
In the box
Unboxing the ThinkVision P27h-10 is a very simple experience and there are only a few things inside the box. You will get the following things when you unpack the box.
- The monitor
- Monitor stand
- Power Cable
- USB Type-C cable
- HDMI Cable
- Calibration report
- Instruction Manual
It is a good thing that the monitor comes with a USB Type-C cable which you can use in order to connect with a device like the 2017 Macbook Pro which only has USB-C Thunderbolt ports to connect peripherals.
The stand is quite good and comes with swivel capability so that you can use the monitor in various different orientations. Let’s move on to the main features of the monitor itself.
Ports & Connectors
One of the many things that the monitor does right is that it doesn’t skimp on ports and connectors. You have a lot of ports including HDMI, USB Type-A and C etc. Take a look at the whole list below.
- 2 HDMI 1.4 Ports
- 2 Display Port 1.2 Ports
- 1 USB Type-C Port
- 4 USB Type-A Ports
- A 3.5 mm jack for headphones
The monitor has a power connector port which is obviously used to power the monitor. The interesting thing about the monitor is that it has USB Type-C Thunderbolt capability so you can have a Type-C connection and connect things like a keyboard and a mouse directly to the monitor for you.
An extra USB Type-A port is present to provide you an exclusive port for charging things like your mobile phone etc. All of the USB Type-A ports are superspeed ports with USB 3.0 so you can be assured of the transfer speeds over USB Type-A connection.
With the presence of two Display Port 1.2 ports, you can daisy-chain two monitors side by side without connecting both to the system that you have. You can have just one Display Port connector from your system to your monitor and then you can connect another monitor by hooking it up with the ThinkVision P27h-10. This is a great thing to have and provides more options when you run out of Display Ports on your computer system.
The monitor has an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. You will notice all the usual IPS things on the monitor which includes blacks being a bit brighter. The brightness can be measured to a highest of 350 cd/m2 which is good enough.
While the monitor itself is calibrated straight from the factory, you can still go ahead and recalibrate it as per your needs. This doesn’t mean that the factory calibration is inaccurate and useless, it is pretty good and the display panel being IPS can easily produce accurate color.
The screen has a viewing angle of 178 degrees and has a 99% sRGB gamut which is good to produce accurate colors on the display.
The bezels around the screen are thin and don’t come in the way so the whole experience will be immersive. You can easily ignore the chin that the display has to house some of the circuitry and controls.
The monitor is available for 36,000 INR in India All in all, the monitor is a great choice if you want to have a good monitor for your office needs that not only is good looking but also gives you great productivity options. It is a great monitor for designers, power users or young professionals.
