The HP Pavilion 27xi is similar to the Dell 2740 -- that is, they use the same LG IPS panel, and both the HP and the Dell have "glossy" glass panels over the display.

The same LG panel is being used in several other 27" displays. A couple that come to mind are
- AOC i2757fh
- ASUS MX279H

The 2012 iMacs have changed back from the "glossy" displays of 2007-11 to an "anti-glare" finish, is that correct?

In that case, you might choose a second anti-glare panel to sit next to it. The AOC and ASUS would be better in this regard.

Check the user reviews on the AOC 27" at BestBuy:

Love it!

Brian,

I just got mine hooked up about 30 minutes ago; impromptu trip to Costco. I am in love with this monitor. I have a mid 2012 MacBook Pro 13" and it is driving it beautifully. It was a little pricier than some of the other available 27" monitors, but it is just a beautiful piece of equipment. I may just get another one to set up side-by-side.
