Philips Launches the 272B8QJEB PC Monitor: 27", QHD, IPS, 10-bit Panel

Philips today launched their newest QHD (2560 x 1440) monitor, the 272B8QJEB. It's a pretty run-of-the-mill affair, with an IPS panel, and support for low blue light and flicker-free technologies. When it comes to gaming, this monitor won't offer much: its 5 ms grey-to-grey response time, lack of any variable refresh rate technology make sure of that. Even in the luminance department this monitor fails to impress: the rated 250 nits don't set world on fire. Where this monitor might come in handy, though, is for professional environments, as it sports a true 10-bit panel with 12-bit source support.

This might be a good alternative for work environments, as it's expected it will go on sale for a relatively competitive pricing, as is the usual Philips way of doing things. There's support for 90 degree pivot, height, and tilt adjustments, and connectivity options are set at 1x VGA, 1x DVI (Dual-Link); 1x DisplayPort 1.2; and 1x HDMI 1.4. There's also a USB hub with 2x USB 3.0 ports (one of which supports Quick-charge functionality) and 2x USB 2.0 ports, with some audio inputs and outputs also thrown in for good measure.

You might be able to overclock it to 75 -80 Hz refresh rate by creating a new resolution in your video card control panel

To what end, it still isn't a fast panel then and for its intended purpose, it won't really be useful.

Right. When we gamed during lunch or after work, the refresh rate was more or less the last thing on our minds. Even way back in the day when I had 1280x1024 x 3 @ 25ms, the point was more about getting a in a game and having some fun...

As for the monitor itself, no speakers? Seems like a simple item missing from an otherwise decent general-purpose monitor. I.e. we have a standard 1080p, a 1440p, and (custom request) when an employee requests a monitor through the intranet store where I work.
