HP v28 4k Monitor (3840 x 2160), 28 Inch, AMD Freesync, (2 HDMI, 1 DP) - Black
About this deal
In all three modes, gamma is in the 1.9 range instead of the ideal 2.2. In the P3 and Standard modes the errors are particularly extreme at 10% and 70-95% brightness. Typically, we’d say you’re not likely to use your monitor at 10% brightness often, but the U28 gets pretty bright, and if you want to use it in a dark room you may be dropping brightness significantly. At that point, details in shadows, like the arches in a stone wall in Mission: Impossible, became harder to see, but it wasn’t a massive issue. Next up is material.

The first is brand. Looking at the brand of the product is often a really good indicator for judging product quality. For example you’d expect a much higher quality product from a brand known for providing excellent quality than you would from an unknown or even a budget brand. The next step after looking at products in the same category, was to look at products from the same brand, HP. Power menu has a Power Mode, where you can activate a Power Saver mode that disables some features,like USB-C video, USB power delivery and the wake from sleep via PC function. There’s also an Auto-sleep Mode, but you can’t control the timing; it’s either on or off.
The Color menu also has presets called Standard, Gaming, Night and HP Enhance+, which you can set to Low, Medium or High. Standard looks very similar to the Photography mode, targeting the P3 color space, as we’ll see in the following tests. HP Enhance+, meanwhile, is supposed to sharpen the display, but I felt it looked artificial and made some text look oddly uneven. There’s also an RGB Gain Adjust section in the Color Menu with sliders (up to 1,023) for red, green and blue.For web surfing and the like, the U28 chooses accuracy above oversaturation. All of the other monitors here oversaturate sRGB, but the U28’s sRGB mode covers nearly all the space without overdoing it, making it great for color-critical work or play. HDR Performance If the brand you buy is important to you, our best advice is to spend some time writing up your own list of ideal brands. That way when you come to the point where you’re comparing product options you can filter to only show the products from brands in your list.
