HP's gaming monitor line-up is getting a new entry this month, the HP X34, not to be confused with Acer's own ultra-wide X34 monitor. The HP X34 packs an ultra-wide IPS panel with 1ms response times and a 165Hz refresh rate.
The HP X34 comes with a 34-inch IPS panel with 3440×1440 resolution, 1ms G2G response time, and 165Hz refresh rate. The panel features a 1000:1 contrast ratio, up to 400 nits of brightness, and 8-bit colour depth, covering 99% of the sRGB colour space.
Thanks to AMD FreeSync Premium, the HP X34 can offer a tearless gaming experience. Additionally, it features HP Eye Ease with TÜV Eyesafe certification, offering flicker-free technology and low blue light emission, and Gaming Console compatibility, allowing PS5 and Xbox Series X|S owners to play at 1080p or 1440p and 120Hz in supported games.
On the back of the monitor, users can find an HDMI 2.0 port, a DisplayPort 1.4, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The included stand is quite limited, you can adjust height and tilt but there is no swivel functionality. Fortunately, VESA 100x100mm monitor arms are supported, so you can upgrade to a better stand or arm.
The HP X34 is compatible with Omen Gaming Hub, allowing users to configure the monitor from within Windows instead of using the OSD. The HP X34 is now available for purchase, priced at £400.

KitGuru says: Compared to most gaming monitors, the HP X34 features an understated design. However, that might be one of its best selling points, offering a nice set of features and specifications, as well as clean aesthetics.
