Philips 272C4QPJKAB full review
High resolution and plenty of screen space with the 27” Philips PLS panel.
Plenty of screen space at 27in and high resolution with 2560 x 1440 pixels, the Philips 272C4 is a PLS technology panel with plenty going for it.
There’s a slightly chunky bevel with an extra strip along the bottom of the front housing power-saving sensors that drop the monitor from 38W normal mode into 0.4W standby mode after it detects that no-one is present. The touch- sensitive menu buttons are here, but the descriptions are invisible with the monitor on, and many functions are cramped into a small space.
At the top sits a 2Mp webcam which takes advantage of multi-view technology that lets you view two inputs at the same time.
A pair of speakers with a 2W amplifier help with the audio. Around the back there’s plenty of connectivity with dual-link DVI, DisplayPort and two HDMI ports.
It all sits on a stand that has had its middle removed– a plus point for aesthetics maybe but it also means it tends to wobble whenever touched.
