Philips has announced its new Philips 276E8FJAB monitor. The new model in its catalog has a 27-inch display size and a 2K resolution. However, its main appeal is probably using the Ultra-Wide Color technology, which allows the monitor to reproduce a color palette larger than that of the competitive monitors currently on the market.
A good monitor should always go together with a good panel with good viewing angles. I suppose that this leaves TN panels completely out of the picture since, no matter how fast they are and how much their vertical refresh rate is, they still are panels that lag behind in terms of color reproduction.
Luckily for users, the new Philips 276E8FJAB sports an IPS panel with 178-degree viewing angles that do not distort colors. This is a basic aspect for a monitor that is going to be used for graphic design, but an even more basic element is for the panel to be able to reproduce all the colors that are fed to it, which is something that the new Philips monitor excels at. It is able to cover up to 114% of the NTSC and up to 132% of the sRGB color space on screen due to the Ultra-Wide Color technology, which makes it the perfect tool for graphic designers.
The Philips 276E8FJAB has a very competitive price for its range
The new Philips 276E8FJAB also features other technologies that enable it to become a good option for users. For example, we have the Flicker-Free technology that eliminates screen flickering, which means that it reduces eye strain for those users who must spend many hours in front of the monitor.
Another important element of this monitor is that it sports thin bezels, which is something essential for users with multi-monitor configurations. I doubt that anyone knowing a graphic designer fails to see that their setups always have more than one monitor.
In terms of the monitor’s video inputs, they are nothing to write home about. It has the basic inputs, which are:
- D-Sub 15 input, which is something rare to find on a modern monitor
- An HDMI 1.4 input
- A DisplayPort 1.2 input
As I was saying, it has quite normal video inputs for what is usually featured on this kind of monitors. It also has an audio input and an audio output for headsets (both are 3.5 mini jack connectors).
The Philips 276E8FJAB can now be purchased at a price of $349.99.
