Lenovo is clearly aiming its new 27-inch monitor at professionals who work off-site. Besides its ThinkVision branding and esthetics, it boasts a new, 1080p webcam with a privacy shutter, an integrated noise-cancelling mic and a speaker. There is also a streamlined USB type C interface with 90W charging and eye-health certifications for its 2K display.

The Lenovo ThinkVision T27hv-20 is this OEM's latest 27-inch monitor that is ostensibly for the home or remote office, having clearly been designed with such use-cases in mind. It comes in a black chassis with red accents and a 3-side-nearly-bezelless 27-inch 2K panel. This display also comes with "Natural Low Blue Light-Technology", which helps confer its Eyesafe and TÜV Rheinland Eye Comfort certifications.

The new monitor is also equipped with an obviously business-focused webcam. It has a 1080p resolution, and comes in a barrel-like form-factor, one outer third of which is a grip to change its angle at will. The middle third holds the lens (which can be covered with a privacy shutter if necessary) as well as an in-built microphone.

This camera also has dedicated dual 3 watt (W) speakers, as well as an indicator light that alerts colleagues or family members in the n the vicinity when the T27hv-20 is in web-conferencing use. The unit also benefits from an RJ-45 jack as well as DisplayPorts, an HDMI port and some USB type As - however, Lenovo asserts that its single type C could also handle their functions.

This 3.2 Gen 1 port also supports up to 90W connected devices. The Lenovo ThinkVision T27hv-20 (which also has a headphone jack) is slated to become available at the end of January 2021, and has a current recommended price of €419 (~US$489).
