HP Z Display 24-Inch Monitors: Enhancing Productivity for UK Professionals

Jamie Finch
|
Many professionals need a display that offers the best graphics available. For example, graphic designers and professional photographers need a display that offers great detail and colour accuracy that helps bring their digital creations to life.
If you are looking for a display that brings out the best of your work, the HP Z 24-inch Display range could be just what you need. And we’ve created this HP Z 24-inch Display review to help you decide whether this monitor is for you.

What to look for in a monitor?

What to look for in Z Displays
What you should look for in a monitor depends on numerous variables. And one of the most important variables to consider is how you will use it.
Any modern computer monitor will offer good quality images with a wide colour range that offers all most people could need. However, some people, like graphic designers, will need a display that goes into more detail and with an excellent colour range.
If you are a creative professional, here are some of the key features you should look for in a monitor.

Resolution

The higher the resolution, the more pixels a display has and the more pixels there are, the more detailed images will be. For example, a full high definition (FHD) screen has 1920 x 1080 pixels while a 4K resolution screen has 3840 x 2160 pixels, which offers much better detail.
Not only does a high resolution mean better quality images, but it also means you can use a larger monitor without losing image quality. Bear in mind that you will need a powerful graphics processor unit (GPU) and central processor unit (CPU) to benefit from higher-resolution screens.

Aspect ratio

An aspect ratio is the ratio between the width and height of a screen. Most computer monitors offer an aspect ratio of 16:9, which is considerably wider than it is tall and is commonly referred to as a ‘widescreen’ display.
However, recent years have seen the rise of different aspect ratios, such as the widescreen ultra extended graphics array (WUXGA) displays that are taller than standard widescreen displays. This additional height offers a larger canvas for creatives to work with, while it also provides more space so you can have more apps open on your screen.

Colour gamut

A gamut is the range of colours a display can accurately create. You will also find different types of gamut, with sRGB being the most common and offering all that most people could need.
However, professionals in some roles might need even more colour accuracy so they can deliver work to the highest standards. For example, many will need to use the Adobe RGB gamut which offers a broader colour range. This gamut has seen increased use in recent years as our technology advances.

Response times

A monitor’s response time is the time it takes for a pixel to change from one colour to another. The metric is usually determined by measuring how long it takes for a pixel to change from black, to white, and then to black again.
Most response times have a response time of just 10ms, and most users won’t recognize any delays at this speed. However, many professionals will need faster response times so the display can keep up with the computer’s output.

Compatibility

Your screen will need to be compatible with the computer and other hardware you’ll be using. For example, there’s little point in investing in a 4K resolution display unless your GPU can create 4K resolution images.
Monitors can also offer other compatibility options, such as using a ‘daisy chain’ connection that makes it easier and tidier to use multiple screens.

HP Z Display 24-inch Monitors

Displays measuring 24 inches are ideally sized so you can view your work in fine detail without being too large for your desk. But this range’s main benefit is image quality and HP ensures that each pixel delivers maximum results. If only one pixel fails HP’s rigorous Zero Bright Dot Guarantee, the company will replace the whole screen.
The HP Z Display for professionals also offers fast 5 ms response times that are ideal for professionals who need faster speed. The range is also easy to set up and easy to use, helping to make you comfortable and productive. The range also offers a selection of aspect ratios, meaning you can boost your productivity with HP monitors.
The HP Z Display 24-inch monitor range is also compatible with other hardware like the HP Z2 Mini, a powerful workstation that’s made with creatives in mind. Despite its small size, the HP Z2 Mini packs plenty of punch with a powerful GPU and CPU.
But what many workers will find most appealing about this mini-powerhouse is that you can mount it directly onto your HP Z Display 24-inch monitor. Mounting your computer onto your monitor in this way helps reduce clutter on your desk, and makes for a neat and productive workstation setup with HP Z Display.
HP offers several HP Z Display 24 Inch Monitor variants, including:
