Philips Outs the 27" 276E8FJAB QHD Monitor With Ultra-Wide Color

Philips has announced a new 27", QHD (2560 x 1440) monitor to their lineup, the 276E8FJAB, which boasts of a 60 Hz, 4 ms IPS panel with the company's Ultra-Wide Color feature which should improve the available color spectrum (Philips are quoting 114% NTSC and 132% sRGB color coverage) for eye-popping colors and graphics. The usual 178º viewing angles of an IPS panel make their appearance here, as do some ultra thin bezels which should improve user experience.

The display comes with other Philips technologies including Flicker-free technology, SmartContrast and SmartImage Lite. Flicker-free is pretty self explanatory, regulating brightness differences between scenes and reducing flicker to relieve eye fatigue and provide more comfortable viewing. SmartContrast detects the content on the display and automatically adjusts colors and backlight intensity to dynamically enhance contrast, while SmartImage Lite "analyzes the content of the screen and dynamically enhances the contrast, color saturation and sharpness for improved display performance". These technologies are a bit hit or miss, though; usually they do little to enhance image quality, and sometimes even hold back the image reproduction quality while introducing increased lag. Connectivity-wise, the Philips 276E8FJAB features 1x VGA, 1xDisplayPort 1.2, 1x HDMI 1.4, 1x Audio in and 1x Audio out. The Philips 276E8FJAB is now available for $349.99 (MSRP).

The price is really neat for a quality 1440p IPS but I'm wondering about QC and blb on a $350 panel.

The wide gamut doesn't hurt either, but I don't think Philips had any noteworthy monitors since their Brilliance series.

There is a difference between 60 and 75Hz, but definitely a big difference between 60 and 85, or better 100Hz. Those rates are not that hard to reach nowadays with all those new technologies, so yeah, I don't understand either why are they still releasing quality panels with crappy 60Hz refresh rates.

You do realize 60Hz is enough for everything except gaming. And this being a wide gamut monitor is most likely not aimed at gaming.

Philips = TP Vision.

Let that be clear, this monitor has absolutely nothing to do with Philips anymore

'Adding' the Phillips logo in the bottom like that without any visual argument makes me question their sanity. (old logo had a smooth transition.) Maybe they just wanna stand out... Like the logo does from the screen.
