CES 2023 | Factory-calibrated Lenovo Legion Y27f-30 and Y27qf-30 gaming monitors announced with up to QHD resolution, a 280 Hz refresh rate, and thin bezels
Among the plethora of gaming and non-gaming notebooks and desktop, Lenovo has also announced a duo of Legion-branded gaming monitors. Named the Legion Y27f-30 and the Legion Y27qf-30, both screens rock super-slim bezels while also carrying fast refresh rates.
First up, both the Legion Y27f-30/Y27qf-30 share the same outward design with 2 mm thin bezels on three sides and a big chin. Aside from the display, the plastic construction houses two HDMI 2.0 ports, four USB 3.2 Gen 1 downstream ports, 1 USB 3.2 Gen 1 upstream port, a single DisplayPort 1.4, and a 3.5 mm audio out. There are also two 3 W built-in speakers.
When it comes to panel technology, both monitors have largely similar specs. The Legion Y27f-30 and the Legion Y27qf-30 have 27-inch 16:9 IPS displays with a 1000:1 contrast ratio, AMD FreeSync + VESA Adaptive Sync, 400 nits of peak brightness, and 0.5 ms of MPRT response time. The main differences between the two lie in resolution, max refresh rate, color depth, and color space coverage.
The Legion Y27qf-30 has a QHD resolution, 10-bit color, an overclocked refresh rate of 250 Hz, and 125%/95% coverage of sRGB/DCI-P3 respectively, whereas the Legion Y27f-30 has an FHD panel with a 280 Hz overclocked refresh rate, 8-bit color, and 113.7%/90.6% coverage of sRGB/DCI-P3.
Last but not the least, the Legion Y27f-30/Y27qf-30 are factory calibrated with a claimed Avg. Delta E of less than 2.
Lenovo asserts that the Legion Y27f-30/Y27qf-30 will be available in April for US$399 and US$499 respectively.
