Taiwanese company Hannspree has been producing televisions, tablets and monitors for a while now. And with the new HG Gaming monitors from Hannspree, they’re aiming to make an impact in the casual and more serious videogame market.
The HG Gaming range currently includes two choices, depending on the screen size you want. And the price you wish to pay. But that’s enough to give a standard screen for most people, and a curved, 2K display for more serious gaming and graphic design.
The Hanspree HG Gaming HG244PJB – £199
The more cost-effective of the two new HG Gaming monitors from Hannspree is the HG244PJB. As you’d probably guess, it’s a 24 inch monitor. But for casual gamers or those starting out in streaming, pro-gaming etc, it does have some decent features.
So you get a fast 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and Adaptive-Sync technology. If you’re not up with display technology, Adaptive Sync means your monitor and graphics card match their refresh rates. So you don’t end up getting half of the old and new frames if your graphics card is running faster than your monitor. The Flicker-Free tech also reduces on-screen flicker.
The Hannspree HG Gaming HG244PJB also boasts 2 HDMI inputs and 1 DisplayPort. Along with built-in stereo speakers just in case your external speakers or headphones are playing up. So a pretty respectable set of specifications.
And like many modern monitors, the new HG Gaming Monitors from Hannspree all have 4-in-1 ergonomic stands. So you can swivel, tilt, pivot and adjust the height to get the perfect angle and set-up you want.
The Hanspree HG Gaming HG324QJB – £399
If you want to invest a bit more money in your gaming or graphic design set-up, then the HG324QJB may be more appropriate. For the extra cash, you get a 32 inch curved 2K display with a 3000:1 high contrast. The 1800R curved panel is apparently the most comfortable for the human eye, as well as given a 178 degree viewing angle. And to also reduce eye strain and headaches, the HG324QJB includes Ultra-Low Blue Light Filters.
In addition to the curved screen and 4-in-1 stand, the Hannspree HG Gaming HG324QJB also has an ultra-thin bezel. Having almost nothing surrounding the screen makes it between for a multi-display set-up.
Like the smaller brother, the HG324QJB comes with 2 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort. But it also gets a mini DP for WQHD. Which stands for Wide Quad High Definition, and basically means a wide-screen format at four times the definition of standard HD. It’s got a fast 2ms display time, 144Hz refresh rate and the same Adaptive-Sync to avoid your graphics card trying to run faster than your screen. And again, there are internal speakers in case it’s useful, for your £399.
So whether you need a single monitor for £199, or a three screen set-up costing around £1,000, the new HG Gaming monitors from Hannspree are worth including in your list to check out.
