HP's Envy 32 display blends FreeSync and living-room DNA

Do you want a big, FreeSync-infused screen that can turn a few heads? Look no further than HP's Envy 32 Media Display.

This 32" screen has a 2560x1440 resolution. It's likely built around an IPS panel or a similar technology, based on its 100% coverage of the sRGB gamut and its 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. The star of the show, however is the display's support for FreeSync variable-refresh-rate technology.  HP doesn't specify the panel's refresh rate, though 60Hz seems a likely maximum. Two 6-watt speakers and a remote control complement the main package.

The Envy 32 bristles with connection options. DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0, and HDMI MHL inputs are all along for the ride, along with USB ports and audio jacks. That MHL input should come in handy for mobile devices, both for charging and using the monitor as a selfie display. HP says the Envy 32 has "optimized upscaling" for that purpose.

You can grab an Envy 32 for $500 at "select retailers" on October 18, or at HP's web store on November 24.
