Philips Rolls Out the 288P6LJEB 28-inch UHD Monitor

Philips rolled out the 288P6LJEB, a 28-inch Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) desktop monitor. Featuring a TFT LCD panel with LED backlit illumination that doesn't use PWM for adjusting brightness, the panel has some interesting specifications on offer - a stunning 1 ms response time, 160°/170° viewing angles (impressive for a TFT panel), 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 1,000:1 static contrast ratio. Display inputs include dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, MHL (mobile high-definition link), HDMI, and D-Sub. Other features include 3W stereo speakers, and a 4-port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed hub. The panel offers power consumption figures of 50.5W (typical) and 0.5W (standby). Its stand offers 90° rotation, apart from tilt and swivel. The 288P6LJEB from Philips is slated for late-May, 2014. Its price is still under the wraps.

I've been expecting this one. My guess is that the Philips 288PLJEB 28" 4K will be priced competitively with the Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m and ASUS PB287Q 4K monitors.

The Lenovo was supposed to be out this month IIRC but I'm not sure if its officially been announced yet.

It has a 1ms response rate for gaming. The response rate is adjusted by the monitor automatically.

Purportedly those new 4K TN monitors use 8 bit panels. All the TN monitor I've had so far look horrible compared to the Apple 27inch display that I recently laid my eyes upon. I'd rather get a high-quality IPS monitor with strobing backlight and dynamic refresh rate for that price.

Response rate =/= refresh rate.

They are 10 bit 1.07B color panels actually.

Exactly People never get it 1MS GTG - doesn't take the factor of Input lag that is having allot to do with TN VS IPS and Refresh rate - a monitor at 60HZ and 4MS GTG would likely give 18.7MS Input lag - a 144HZ & 1MS GTG - something like 6.7MS Or 8MS

Regardless im sure something like a 18-20MS on UHD Would Be a hell of a Experience even if it blurry compare to TN & 120HZ+

It is 5ms but it adjusts down to 1ms for gaming
It's really just overdrive.

remember that 1ms respons =/= input lag.

I bought one of these after reading about the TN screen (which I usually choose for gaming) having a gtg of 5ms sounded nice for a 4k panel... BUT what it doesn't say is that there is an INPUT LAG OF WELL OVER 100ms!

That's a 6 frame lag @ 60Hz. so forget a couple of ms response, it's all in the processing electronics.
