The UltraClear 4K UHD monitor line-up by Philips just got a brand new member. The 241P6VPJKEB display boasts the same remarkable performance as its larger siblings, with UltraClear 4K UHD, 1.074 billion colours and 99% SRGB coverage. Considering the quality and performance of the other members of the UltraClear 4K UHD family, this entry-level display seems to be a feasible option for many creative professionals and editors working on a budget who are looking for a reasonable priced display capable of accurate colour reproduction and uncompromised performance in a relatively (for the UHD standards) compact and inexpensive unit. The manufacturer promises that this 10-bit display delivers rich colour depth for smooth, natural reproduction without gradations and banding effects.

Apart from the powerful UHD AH-IPS display, this new monitor supports MultiView, so that users can connect and view images from two separate sources at the same time. The display also features Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) technology on board allowing creative professionals to view mobile content from smartphones or other devices on the big screen, or use the USB 3.0 hub to hook up devices and recharge them fast. There’s also an integrated webcam and microphone included which is also a nice extra add-on to the pack.
In terms of connectivity, the 23.8-inch display provides VGA, DVI-Dual Link, DisplayPort, and HDMI (2.0) – MHL (3.0) interfaces along with 3xUSB 3.0 ports. Considering its relatively compact size and extremely powerful and bright UHD display this monitor may be a suitable fit for smaller and compact spaces while still reaping the benefits of the higher resolution and top-notch performance of the larger models.
The price is another advantage of the new Philips 24-inch UHD display. The monitor will set you back around £369/$560 when it becomes available. According to the official press release provided by Philips, it’s expected to hit the shelves in the next two weeks.
