The Z27x uses a glow free, matte, 8 Bit +FRC LG AH-IPS panel which does not have a colour compensation feature like the Eizo CX271 and Eizo CG277.  The HP can be hardware calibrated by editing an XML file, but to the same degree as the Eizo and NEC which makes them much better choices for colour accuracy related work.  The HP is a better choice for multi-media use though, especially gaming since it has lower input lag than the NEC PA272W and less ghosting than the Eizos.

HP 27Q

Review by Rtings

Matte IPS with AMD Free-Sync (48-75hz range), 75hz, decent preset color accuracy, Displayport, 1x HDMI 1.4 and 3.5mm audio out.  Has high input lag (28ms) unless the Free-Sync mode is enabled in the menu, and suffers from image retention.

HP DreamColor Z27x G2 Studio (2NJ08AT)

Measurements by Belgium Hardware

Fully adjustable matte 2560x1440 wide gamut IPS with Displayport, 2x HDMI, USB-C, 3.5mm Audio Out, 4x USB 3.0 and USB-C.  The HP suffers from a slight preset green tint, has nearly 2.4 average gamma and high input lag (35.7ms Leo Bodnar device measurements).
