The 32-inch Quad HD model (326E8FJSB) with 2560 x 1440 resolution and 27-inch 4K model (276E8VJSB) with 3840 x 2160 resolution are each available for $280 through Amazon and NewEgg. Both are 10-bit widescreen displays that use 12-bit internal processing for a smoother picture “without gradations or color banding,” according to EPI, which distributes Philips-brand monitors in the U.S.
Aimed at gamers, the 32-inch monitor features AMD FreeSync technology for more fluid game play, a response time of 5ms, and three game modes: FPS for improved contrast, Racing for the fastest response time, and RTS for highlighting a specific area; the Racing and RTS modes include image adjustments. Custom settings for different games can be saved in Gamer 1 and 2 presets.
The 27-inch monitor has a thin bezel and incorporates IPS LED wide-view technology for “crisp images and vivid colors with consistent brightness at any angle,” according to EPI, making it ideal for movies or professional applications requiring great detail. MultiView technology allows two devices to be connected for simultaneous viewing and multi-tasking.
Both monitors include Philips’ proprietary LowBlue mode to reduce “harmful blue light” and Flicker-Free technology, which is said to regulate brightness and reduce flicker for a more comfortable viewing experience with less eye fatigue.
Philips monitors are covered by a four-year “advance replacement warranty.”
