Philips are set to release a new professional grade monitor in some regions, most notably the Asian and North American markets. The 27E1N8900 is a ~27″ sized OLED display with a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and a range of capabilities ideally suited to the professional market and colour critical work.
Philips 27E1N8900 Specs
The screen is approximately 27″ in size, measuring an actual 26.9″. It has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution, an advertised 0.1ms G2G response time, 1 million:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness (SDR) and 178/178 viewing angles. The screen has a wide colour gamut with 99.7% DCI-P3 and 99.6% Adobe RGB coverage quoted. This corresponds to ~150% sRGB relative coverage. A range of colour preset modes are also provided including importantly modes for sRGB, DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB. A 10-bit colour depth is also available.
We should note that the screen is 60Hz only, as it is not designed for gamers but for professional users.
For HDR content the screen can reach 540 cd/m2 peak brightness but thanks to the OLED panel it can offer per-pixel level dimming, meaning no blooming or halos – unlike even the best FALD / Mini LED backlit LCD monitors. Because all the pixels can be switched off individually if needed, the screen can offer true blacks and a near infinite contrast ratio. This all makes the screen very well suited to HDR content creation and consumption. The 27E1N8900 has also been certified under the VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 scheme – note this is very different to the normal HDR 400 certification level.
This Philips display features a USB type-C connector with power delivery. With intelligent and flexible power management, you can power charge your compatible device directly. Its slim, reversible USB-C allows for easy, one-cable connection. You can watch high resolution video and transfer data at a super-speed, while powering up and re-charging your compatible device at the same time.
With MultiClient Integrated KVM switch, you can control two separate PCs with one monitor-keyboard-mouse set up. A convenient button allows you to quickly switch between sources. Handy with set-ups that require dual PC computing power or sharing one large monitor to show two different PCs.
A Smart Uniformity mode is included to help ensure a consistent and uniform image. The screen has a range of connections offering 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x USB type-C (with DP Alt mode and 90W power delivery). There is also a 4 port USB 3.2 hub provided along with an audio out. Picture By Picture (PbP) modes are supported for “Multi View” and the stand offers a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments.
