Huawei not only sells smartphones, but also notebooks and PC accessories. The latter belongs to Huawei MateView GT 27, a technically extremely successful monitor for gamers, which also cuts a fine figure as an office device. Now it’s on sale and for 249 Euro to have, further discounts are possible.
What can the Huawei monitor do?
With a 27-inch diagonal in the classic 16:9 aspect ratio, the MateView GT (view it in the Huawei shop) has a lot of screen space. The WQHD resolution of 2.560 × 1.440 is reasonably sharp for a monitor of this size. His VA-Panel is quite responsive, manufacturer information: 4 ms. With a refresh rate of 165 Hz animations on the screen are extremely smooth. This shows up in games as well as on desktop and is a huge advantage over many bread-and-butter 60Hz monitors.
Players also benefit from FreeSync Compatibility. With modern graphics cards from AMD or Nvidia, the monitor synchronizes its frame rate with the graphics card, which ensures lower input lag and a smoother-looking image and prevents image tears. In addition, the monitor trumps with support from HDR10 up, which ensures more contrast and dynamics in appropriately adapted games and videos.
With a Maximum brightness of 400 cd/m² the effect should be clear. HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 ports are present, which matches the existing refresh rate and resolution. Otherwise, it looks rather economical with additional connections: some might miss a USB hub, but probably not the missing speakers – they sound thin on most monitors anyway.
It is a Curved-Monitor with inwardly curved panel (1500 R). Not everyone likes that, but from our own experience we consider it to be an advantage at the usual distance in desk use. Another goodie: the monitor can Charge other devices with a USB-C port, perfect for charging your cell phone on the side or to supply a connected notebook directly with “juice”.
The colleagues from ComputerBild to judge to the monitor with a grade of “good” (2.2) positive. It’s the best monitor in the $300 range.
