In the recent months, in a series of posts we’ve covered some of the latest 4K monitors that have attracted the attention of creative professionals in one way or another. This time, we stumbled upon one of the latest monitors of Philips the 276E6ADSS. Even though it’s a Full HD monitor only, the world’s first Quantum Dot 27-inch model boasts loads of appealing features and comes with an extremely attractive price tag of just $299.
In essence, Quantum Dot Colour is an innovative nanomaterial technology that produces incredibly accurate, saturated colour. A representative of MMD, the leading company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, claims that that this tech innovation improves significantly the accuracy of colour reproduction than traditional sRGB LEDs. Additionally, the unit itself costs a fraction of most colour-critical technologies and uses 25 % less energy than other similar models in the segment.
With 99% coverage of the Adobe RGB and 100% coverage of the sRGB color spaces, this Phillips monitor is the perfect fit for creative professionals who demand accurate color representation and consistent brightness for their workflow on a daily basis. Along with color accuracy, this IPS panel supports 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles as well as a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 5 ms response time.
The SmartContrast feature automatically adjusts colour, contrast and backlight intensity to make the viewing experience even richer and more immersive. SmartImage Lite, on the other hand, analyzes the content displayed on your screen. Based on a scenario you select, this feature dynamically enhances the contrast, color saturation and sharpness of images and videos for ultimate display performance – all in real time with the press on a single button.
Users can also take advantage of the SmartControl Lite, a 3D icon-based GUI monitor control software that provides the ability to fine-tune most parameters of the monitor like color, brightness, screen calibration, multimedia, ID management, with a touch of the mouse. The intuitive smart touch controls below the display are another extra feature of the Philips 276E6ADSS.
Regarding connectivity, the latest member of the E-Line series comes with standard VGA and DVI-D connectors as well as an HDMI connector with support for MHL connectivity. Mobile High-Definition Link support allows users to connect compatible mobile devices directly to the monitor to stream content through the HDMI port.
All in all, the Philips 276E6ADSS delivers more vivid colours, consistent and true-to-life than ever, and provides colour quality that professionals working on a shoestring budget will most likely embrace eagerly. The fact that it does so at a consumer price point makes it a quite appealing option for many professionals, or, at least, a viable second monitor that definitely won’t let users down.
