Like the ThinkVision Creator Extreme Lenovo first unveiled in 2020, the P27pz-30 and P32pz-30 are IPS monitors with 1,152 dimming zones each. This should allow for more detailed contrast levels than typical LCD-LED screens and less bloom when it comes to white content on dark backgrounds.

The upcoming displays claim a typical brightness of 600 nits but claim to go as high as 1,200 nits. They have DisplayHDR 1000 certification by VESA and also support HDR10 and HLG formats.

Color coverage is close to the maximum of the most common color spaces. The 27-inch Mini LED monitor claims 99 percent DCI-P3, 100 percent sRGB, 99 percent Adobe RGB, 100 percent BT.709, and 80.5 percent BT.2020. The 31.5-inch version has nearly the same color gamut but with 98 percent DCI-P3 coverage. 4K displays have refresh rates of up to 60Hz.

Both monitors come out in August. Lenovo said it expects the 31.5-inch device to be priced at $1,599.

Meanwhile, contrast levels are just a bit short of the ThinkVision Creator Extreme’s claims (1,000:1 for each vs. 1,100:1). In addition, the new Mini LED displays have a distinct new type of LCD-LED panel to compete with: IPS black. IPS Black debuted this year, and claims up to twice the contrast as standard IPS screens, and the supporting products look like strong competition for the new Mini LED screens. For example, a size of 27 inches Dell UltraSharp U2723QE We recorded a variance of 1,873:1, while we saw a 1,860:1 in our Dell UltraSharp U3223QZ review. However, these Dell monitors are a far cry from the intense highlights that Lenovo’s monitors’ 1,200-nit HDR capability claims to deliver.

With mini LED backlighting, Lenovo’s new screens may also be able to avoid the blooming effect that tends to plague LCD-LED screens.
