With the ThinkVision P27u-20, Lenovo introduces a new 4K UHD Thunderbolt 4 monitor for graphic designers, video editors, and other creative professions. The Lenovo Thinkvision monitor is VESA Display HDR 400 certified, covers the Adobe RGB color space to 99.5 percent.
The ThinkVision P27u-20 is a new 4k computer monitor from Lenovo for creative professions. It not only takes up significantly less space on the desk but is also much more affordable. On a 27-inch diagonal, the three-sided, almost borderless, in-plane switching panel with WLED backlighting has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That results in a very high pixel density of 163 PPI.
The refresh rate is 60 Hz, and the viewing angle is 178 degrees. The manufacturer specifies the typical brightness as 450 cd/m², which also earns the monitor VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. The typical contrast ratio is given as 1,000: 1, the dynamic as 3,000,000: 1.
A high color space coverage is important for designers, with which the Lenovo ThinkVision P27u-20 can undoubtedly score. The device reproduces 99.5 percent of the large Adobe RGB color space, while the monitor covers 99.1 percent of the DCI-P3. The other values are 100 percent sRGB and BT.709 and 83.7 percent BT.2020. Less important for many creative professions, but should not go unmentioned is the response time. It is 6 ms in normal mode and 4 ms in extreme mode. Not as fast as the new gaming monitors from Lenovo, but sufficient.
The connections are one Thunderbolt 4 In and One Out, two HDMI 2.0, and one DisplayPort 1.2. There is also an Ethernet port and a USB hub. A jack connection for headphones is also available. In terms of ergonomics, the monitor can be rotated and tilted, adjusted in height, and used in a pivot position. A VESA mount (100 x 100) is also provided.
