Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The HP OMEN 27i is a good monitor for most uses, but it's best-suited for gaming. It has an outstanding response time, low input lag, and it supports FreeSync. On the other hand, the low contrast ratio and disappointing accuracy out-of-the-box make it only a decent choice for multimedia.

  • FreeSync variable refresh rate

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The Omen 27i is a very versatile monitor, equally at home playing games with demanding graphics or pushing through workday tasks. The large color gamut was apparent in everything we did, from Windows desktop background photos to movies and games of all types. The 27i tracks 2.2 pretty well, but some might prefer a darker or lighter luminance curve.

Pros
  • Wide color gamut
  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Excellent dynamic contrast
Cons
  • No sRGB mode
  • No HDR support
