The KTC H27T22 with its IPS panel offers good color accuracy, making it suitable for digital photo editing. The 27-inch screen provides a sharp image with its resolution, and the adjustable stand adds to viewing comfort. For gaming, its good refresh rate and fair response time lend themselves well to casual gaming; however, competitive gamers might notice ghosting which can detract from fast-paced gameplay. While it supports a fair range of variable refresh rates, it lacks features for high-end gaming like HDR. Its fair brightness and contrast make it decent for media consumption, but not ideal for HDR video editing or print photo editing. Its connectivity options are suitable for most users but lack USB-C or Thunderbolt ports. Overall, it's a solid choice for mixed-use at a mid-range price, especially if your focus is on photo editing and casual gaming. Give Feedback
