Philips have announced their new 28″ sized 288E2UAE display. This screen is aimed at consumers looking for a stylish screen for productivity and general uses. It has a 4K resolution, 10-bit colour depth and is focused on colour accuracy. It offers ultra-narrow bezels, a slim design and an elegant stand, making it the ideal choice for design-conscious users, who will also benefit from a large viewing area.
The screen offers a 3840 x 2160 (“4K”) resolution IPS panel that offers a 10-bit colour depth and wide colour gamut covering 119% sRGB (106.9% NTSC also quoted). The screen comes factory calibrated with a dE < 2 as well. In other specs there is a 4ms G2G response time, 60Hz refresh rate, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles. The screen does support adaptive sync for G-sync and FreeSync VRR although it only has a max 60Hz refresh rate.
The EasySelect key, a joystick that allows quick access to the monitor menu, makes life even easier. Every detail is intended to keep the front bezel clean and maintain an orderly desk.
For connectivity there are DisplayPort and HDMI connections along with a 4-port USB 3.2 hub built in, one of the ports features fast-charge as well and also an audio out. When tasks are complex, users can rely on MultiView technology to simultaneously connect two devices, such as a PC and a notebook, in Picture-in-Picture or Picture-by-Picture modes.
The adjustable stand can be tilted (-5/20°) and positioned to the optimal height thanks to its 100 mm height adjustment feature (there is no swivel or rotate). Easy on the eyes, the Philips 288E2UAE monitor features an anti-glare screen, EasyRead mode for a paper-like reading experience, Flicker-free technology and LowBlue mode for more comfortable viewing. A Smart Uniformity feature is also included which helps produce a more uniform brightness across the screen. There are integrated 2x 3W stereo speakers provided as well.
The Philips 288E2UAE monitor is available from February with an RRP of £269 GBP.
