HP's latest launch includes a range of new enterprise-focused monitors. The traditional wired versions of this E series are the world’s first fully-adjustable displays TUV-certified for blue light reduction. There is also the E14 G4, a high-brightnes portable device with a high-end chassis and USB type C passthrough power.

HP has also unveiled several new business-grade monitors today (May 26, 2020). It largely consists of wired ergonomic (or fully adjustable in terms of tilt, height, lateral angle and orientation) displays of varying size, although there is also one of the portable form-factor that needs just 1 USB type C cable to get going.

The OEM has declared the first type to be the "world’s first" monitor series with an always-on low-blue light mode. They are also TUV Rheinland-approved to do this at a hardware level. They consist of the FHD HP E22 G4, E23 G4, E24 G4 and E27 G4, a naming convention that sets out their approximate size (the E22 G4 is 21.5 inches in length, whereas the rest are more accurate).

In addition, there are QHD versions of the larger 2 variants (the E24q and E27q G4), as well as a 1920x1200 24-inch option (the E24i G4). These 16:9 panels all have a 5 millisecond gray-to-gray (GtG) response rate, 4 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, as well as DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA inputs.

These E-series displays have 250 nits of brightness, whereas the HP E14 G4 has 400. This, apparently, makes it the world’s brightest 14-inch portable monitor. There is no TUV certification here, although blue light is minimized via software.

This FHD IPS device has 2 USB type C ports, which can be leveraged for passthrough power so that the outputting PC might be able to charge it and itself via its PSU at the same time. The E14 G4 can either lie flat or use its 78-degree adjustable in-built kick-stand.

At present, HP projects that the Exx(y) G4 monitors will become available from August 2020, at which point they will start at US$159. The E14 G4, on the other hand, may not be here until September, but it is known that it will cost $249 at its launch.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
