27" 1440p Monitor with Brightness Buttons
 
Like the title says, do 27" monitors with hardware brightness controls exist? I do NOT meant brightness controls in an OSD menu.

I press a button and the brightness goes up or down. Just like on a laptop.

any suggestions?

Never in my years have I seen that. They have brightness and contrast buttons that you can use that will bring up a OSD.. but that is as much as I have seen.

A lot of monitors operate so that you just press up to activate brightness setting, then up and down for brightness. The brightness % does appear onscreen but you don't have to go into any menus or anything. So it's one extra button press, but most laptops you have to press or hold the fn button anyway.

All three monitors I am using right now are like that. A Samsung 275t, a random BenQ and an Asus ProArt.

I think what you're asking for is backlight control, that doesn't exist on any desktop monitor that I know of.
