HP has just announced a new generation of Z-series monitors that promise top-notch color accuracy as well as attractive styling and sustainable manufacturing. The announcement comes shortly after Dell revealed its new color-critical UltraSharp 32 HDR PremierColor UP3221Q - a high-end, and high-price, display aimed at enthusiast and pro content creators.

Headlining the new HP monitor range are two flagship DreamColor displays: the HP Z25xs G3 and Z27xs G3. The existing DreamColor Z31x is already one of our favorite monitors for video editing, but these two new panels are claimed to be "the world’s first color critical HDR monitors with one-touch brightness adjust". This allows you to view your content at maximum display brightness with a touch of a button, and then immediately revert back to your normal screen brightness.
