Philips Stunning New E Series Narrow-Border Monitors Now Available

Today EPI, the brand license partner for Philips monitors and leading technology company, announces the availability of the Philips E Series. The E Series includes three monitors - a 27-inch (276E9QDSB), 24-inch (246E9QDSB) and 22-inch (226E9QDSB). This family of professional monitors provides vivid color in a stylish, minimal design. With an IPS panel with wide viewing angles and incredibly narrow side bezels, the E series is especially suited for a multi-display or tiling setup for graphic design or professional applications. The E line is available at Newegg starting at $109.99.

The Philips E Line features stylish design with extraordinary picture performance. The display is a Full HD IPS panel with a wide range of colors that provides better viewing angles and high color accuracy for color-intensive tasks like photo editing or graphic design. Users can expect to see more realistic colors and a true-to-life picture.
These new Philips displays are designed with ultra-narrow borders which allow for minimal distraction and maximum viewing size when used together. The ultra-narrow border provides an experience similar to the feeling of using a single large display. Paired with the IPS panel, the E line is ideal not only for professional applications, but also for photos, movies, web browsing and gaming. For console gaming, the E line also uses AMD FreeSync technology for artifact-free performance and smooth video playback.

Philips has also packed the E line with a suite of Philips exclusive features including its LowBlue mode and Flicker-Free technology. Studies have shown that just as ultra-violet rays can cause eye damage, shortwave length blue light rays from LED displays can cause eye damage and affect vision over time. Philips LowBlue mode was developed for wellbeing and uses a smart software technology to reduce harmful blue light. Due to how brightness is controlled on LED screens, many users experience flicker on their screen which causes eye fatigue. Philips Flicker-Free technology regulates brightness and reduces flicker for a more comfortable viewing experience.

The Philips E series is now available at Newegg for $179.99 for the 27-inch model, $139.99 for the 24-inch and $109.99 for the 22-inch.

Wide color seems to be absent in a 22" model.
The 24" is a cheapo for only 110eur. Might be cheap for a reason.
The strange part is, it is a 6bit+FRC monitor, so how did they achieve 108% NTSC is a mystery to me.

These are actually not bad for the business sector. It's rare to find vesa compatibility at super cheap price points. You usually don't see that option on the intro model either, but it is with this one. I might have to try a few of these at work. IT is always restricted on budget for low to medium sized businesses. Our hardware isn't the latest and greatest so 4k is a no go, but we don't need that feature either way. Dual monitor setup with 1080p, ips, and vesa compatible is always a plus. The newegg version also comes with a 4 year warranty.

It's essentially the same as an 8bit panel. Though bit depth has no relation to the covered gamut anyway.

My two cents: those bezels are narrow, but not that narrow. The lower bezel is wider so the "experience similar to the feeling of using a single large display" is limited to a single line of monitors. For the asking price, that's not really a con.

I actually saw this monitor and it has a yellowish tint to it even after calibration. Highly overrated, they are using junk IPS panels. Stay far away imo.

and the colors are very over saturated... terrible monitor.

Isn't that a given for pretty much any Philips monitor these days?
If all you do is office work, you'll probably not even notice the tint, the uneven lighting, the backlight bleeding or any other problems cheap monitors have.

the author of this posting on TPU is going based off the 108% color space claim that the monitor advertises, the author has not seen this monitor in person though. i assure you, it is a false claim made by philips.

Keep in mind that these are not made by Philips, they simply carry their brand.
It's most likely that TPV Technology, the same Hong Kong company that owns AOC, is behind these displays and that's why a lot of Philips products these days are pretty meh, at least when it comes to displays and TVs, although they apparently took over as the brand licensee for all Philips branded A/V products earlier this year.

I have bought this monitor

Philips marketing is definitely good. The overall quality is behind that.
This monitor, at max brightness has very heavy clouding. The clouding is very little once brightness is set to 0%.
This 0% brightness level is the only level i can actually use if i don't want my eyes burn when viewing white (as its very bright).
The other features, like low blue, smart contrast and such are useless. It somehow thinks, that if i look at a bright image, it has to turn brightness to 100% to make it even brighter. That is so ridiculous.
The power sensor, on the other hand is a good feature. USB charge port is also useful for me.
I'd give 6/10 for the monitor that cost 270 Eur.

So looking at this 110Eur price range and it having wide color is somewhat really strange.

6bit+dithering has been indistinguishable from 8bit for years. The trade off is probably slightly increased power draw, but you get the lower cost in return.
