    Almost bezel-less, FHD, 27″, Anti-glare monitor

    In regards to customer service:I am changing from 4 stars to 1 star due to the customer service. I am really disappointed with the way they are treating my issue from the beginning. I received an email from Philips 4 days after I sent my service request and was told that I was given 3 days to reply or my request is automatically canceled. The Philips email asked for more information than necessary, including information that I had already sent in the initial email. Really the only NEW information was my phone number, email, and home/office address. GET IT? They asked me my email via email! Everything else such as name, model name, serial #, graphics card, laptop model, PC model, date of purchase were all included in my first service request. So they sent me a general email which could have been automated but just 4days late with questions that feel like they’re just extracting information for marketing purposes. Worst move ever from a company that wants to sell products.1month report:The unit I received has issues connecting to my wife’s 14″ LG gram with HD5500 graphics. I’ve updated the drivers, tried another HDMI cable and checked the power but the monitor will flicker every 5-20 seconds except when it is fine for about 30mins. I do not have problems with my other laptop and my wife does not have the problem with other monitors so it seems to be a problem specifically between the two. Emailed Philips once 2 weeks ago and just tried again today.1 week report:I bought the 27″ Philips monitor as part of my back-to-school office as I am starting grad school. I had done some extensive research as I knew this what I would be rolling with for the next 5 years and was exhausting my gear budget. I’ve had this thing for a week now writing essays, browsing the internet, making ppt presentations, watching youtube etc. I am very pleased with it. (Full setup: LG gram 17, Philips 27″ monitor, Jellycomb wireless keyboard+mouse, Anker Soundcore2 BT speakers, Saiji folding laptop stand.)This thing does everything it is supposed to very well, but nothing exceptional as you would expect at the price point. Good(not great) FHD image quality at 27″ with no real problems(image sharpness is better than expected). The anti-glare screen is smooth so it’s good to use with lights behind you and it’s not a fingerprint magnet.(The lightness in the photo is from a full-sized balcony window in broad daylight.) It is not great for gaming btw. Now for the nit-picking!Cons: (Everything that is not in this list is a Pro.)1. Only has minimum tilt angles with no height or horizontal way of adjustment. The base has rubber feet that are good if you want it stable but bad if you want to move it often.2. The bezels are thicker than you think. (about 8mm=1/3 inch) Hence “almost” bezel-less. But my wife was very impressed with watching videos on it.3. Colors are a bit too saturated at first and even after you install the newest drivers for it. Easy calibration via windows software.4. Like many other monitors, the knob used to control the OSD is not intuitive at all to use. So doing everything via software is a better idea. Also, the OSD has volume as an option even though this does not have speakers. + the 75Hz thing is a gimmick.5. The on-screen message that you get when unplugging the HDMI port or just turning off your laptop is very 90’s utilitarian.6. Limited ports. I am only using 1 HDMI so that’s fine but others might want more. They give you a cheap(basic), 6foot HDMI cable and a D-sub cable which is usable and better than nothing.7. The OSD knob behind the screen is also the power button which you have to long press(3secs) to turn it off when you want to get rid of that ‘Cannot find source’ or “Check connection” message. Having a dedicated instant power button right where the little indicator is placed would have been a lot better.Well, this is all nit-picking but we live in an age where we look for perfection. I hope this gets me through the next 5 years without any issues!

    Beautiful monitor for the price.

    Definitely a good deal here. Friend needed a decent monitor for a budget gaming build… found this and it fit the bill perfectly. For one, it’s got a decent IPS panel. Another thing is the exterior is very pleasant. Almost non-existent bezels, a nice looking base, and simple controls round out the exterior. The fact that it has FreeSync is just icing on the cake. Now granted, it’s not a high refresh rate monitor, but for a budget build, I’d be hard-pressed to find a nicer monitor. This compared very closely to an Acer gaming monitor of almost exact same specs, but the Acer was costlier.

    Not Useable as a Computer Monitor

    Oh my god this was the worst horrible terrible. Pixellated text and horrible and made me dizzy and the worst and bad and not good and bad too. Are you thinking about buying this as a computer monitor? I recommend that you do not. Don’t read the description they provide, trust me – it’s not a computer monitor. No no no no jn no. Oh my god no. God forbid. Please ono. Don’t even think about it.On the other hand it is an attractive piece of hardware, aesthetically I mean.But as a computer monitor? I think you already know what I think of it – I think it is not good for this. Do not try at home.

    Philips could charge more for this on the specs sheet alone, there’s a reason they don’t.

    I’ll try to keep this as brief as I can: This monitor is incredibly meh. There are a couple highs, but the lows are deep lows for my use case.I’m not sure why “gaming” is one of the features listed to give a star rating, this monitor is firmly meant for more professional work, but I actually did get it because I thought the 100Hz refresh rate would be a nice upgrade for gaming. It works, but that’s the only “gaming” feature about it.Pros:Screen quality is actually quite good. Color quality/calibration (out of the box), refresh rate, pixel density, etc., all add up to a nice looking display.OSD (monitor’s menu) and buttons, while a bit dated in the era of very intuitive mini-joystick controls, is good. A bit annoying to get thru at first but you get used to it quick.The stand is quite good. Monitor clips in very easily, very smooth movement, etc.Cons:I’m onboard with 21:9 or greater monitors being curved. It makes sense. I think this monitor’s curve is either too little or too much, I can’t figure out which. When things are centered on my screen they the edges of the windows look a bit awkward because I can see the screen’s curve a bit too plainly, and the very edges of the screen have a very slight distortion to them.The “USB-C dock” and “KVM” features are … what I consider a lie but I’ll give them it’s TECHNICALLY doing those things.The USB-C dock is perfectly functional, actually, except a couple fairly use-case-breaking complaints from me: The monitor must be in a variety of non-default settings to continue passing power to the “docked” PC if you’re using USB PD to power the computer. Took me a while to figure out what I had to change, and it kept defaulting back without me changing anything… and even when it worked when the monitor is turned off or goes to sleep it stops passing power after some indeterminate amount of time (there’s probably a timer not listed in the OSD, happened two nights in a row). I leave my laptop on 24/7 on a dock, and I was hoping to replace it with this monitor’s feature set but I simply can’t.The “KVM” is by definition NOT a KVM. Yes, you can switch the USB devices you plug into the monitor between two separate computers, and yes you can also switch the video inputs… but you do them separately. I guess this is because they expect you to use the PIP/PBP features a LOT more than I ever will. Either way, it’s one press to bring up a menu, 1-2 presses to select the device, and another press to select it… twice. No hotkeys, no linked-switching, nothing. Also, biggest complaint for me… when you switch every USB device you have plugged in switches. Perfectly reasonable… except that the ethernet port in the monitor is a USB device for the “dock” so your “docked” device loses ethernet when you switch. The “KVM” is simply a low level USB 3.0 switch, which in and of itself is not a bad thing, it’s just misleading.Final complaint: When using the included-in-the-box HDMI with my Dell WD-15 dock and my work laptop while working from home, the monitor will just black out randomly for ~3-5 seconds. When using the same dock with my personal laptop I haven’t seen the problem once… I didn’t have this problem before using this monitor, but it’s just weird and annoying.Things I’d like to see in a future updated model (some potentially with a firmware fix?)1. Option to lock the ethernet device to USB-C interface so it doesn’t switch with the USB switch.2. Call it a USB switch, not a KVM, so it makes more sense in how I think Philips intends users to be approaching the feature.3. Have more defined options for continuing to pass power to the USB-C device when the monitor is asleep. Doesn’t need to do it while the monitor’s off, I guess, just something more obvious in the settings.4. Maybe bump up the refresh rate to 120Hz. 100Hz is a weird RR for gaming.If you’re planning on ignoring the “KVM” or USB-C dock features for the most part, this monitor is actually a pretty damn good deal. If you’re banking on those features being worthwhile… look for dedicated devices separate from the monitor.

    Reasonably_Priced High Performance Monitor

    The monitor, Model 246E9QDSB/27, ordered with free shipping, arrived six days after the order was placed. It was in top condition due to manufacturer’s styrofoam inside a strong box inside an Amazon box. The monitor setup was easy and I used the DVI connection. I was very taken aback when I turned the unit on and got a full color, brilliant display that was decidedly better than the monitor I replaced. Overall I am very pleased with the performance so far.The ISP screen is very applicable to our family needs as we frequently Skype with our grandchildren. Two of us sit side-by-side, dividing the screen, and each of us has a great view due to the very wide viewing angle (178 deg). I believe gamers might find this monitor to be very adequate but have not tried it for gaming use. There is absolutely no apparent flicker and the Low Blue Light setting gives a very normal brightness for almost all of our normal viewing needs. Toggling between Low Blue Light and Normal Light mode is a quick and simple procedure once you locate and learn the function of the single switch (see comment below).There are a few items that I will note. First, although the monitor does comply with the VESA mounting standard (in this case, 75mm by 75mm) for monitor mounting, I could not use my very flexible tilt and rotate desktop monitor stand I had anticipated using because the input fittings which extend out perpendicular from the monitor back, both DVI and VGA, interfere enough with the stand column as to prevent the use of the stand. I could use HDMI for this model number but to do so would require some challenging cabling mods for my particular setup. Secondly, the on/off and mode selector switch is rather cryptically described in the manual. I finally found the switch and discovered that it was a multi-function toggle-type switch located at the bottom center of the monitor back. The diagramatic instructions should be augmented by stating in words, “The on/off and multi-function toggle-type switch is located about one inch from the bottom center of the monitor back. This switch is used for selecting the monitor functions and for making monitor adjustments.” Thirdly, there was no CD or DVD included with the order. I went online to the Phillips website under Support, downloaded the driver file and User Manual and easily found the latest driver with the helpful instruction as to how to verify that the generic Windows 10 driver was being used and instruction as to how to install and verify that the correct driver had been installed. I consider these to be minor critics. In short, I am very pleased with this high-quality, very modern and up-to-date monitor…good job Phillips!

    cannot play 4K HDR movie from streaming service like Netflix

    I wish I could keep this monitor, but I have to return it finally because my friend and I find out it cannot play 4K HDR movie from streaming service like Netflix. We guess it may not support HDCP 2.2. There is no mention on Philips website nor in its manual and we have not heard back from Philips yet.Pros: Great color coverage and contrast. Very excellent HDR performance. The viewing angle is very good on this MVA panel monitor compared to other VA monitors. Everything looks great and pop out when playing 4k hdr videos. The best monitor I’ve seen on the market for these perspectives.Cons: It indeed has sub-pixel rendering problem, but it goes away when sitting a little bit further, not a big deal. Philips lacks some software support like screen split and only support PBP with 2 input sources. HOWEVER, THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS IT CANNOT PLAY 4K HDR MOVIE. My friend and I used the same device(chromecast) on another LG monitor and it can play 4k hdr movie! This means we can only stream HD movie or HD TV shows on this monitor! We guess it might because it lacks HDCP 2.2 support which is a must to play 4k movies. This is a deal breaker for me because having such a huge monitor that is almost the size of a TV, I also want to watch 4k movie besides causal gamingTo sum up, this monitor is great for PC or console gaming. But I am not able to watch 4k hdr movies on this monitor. We gave up after one day’s debugging and researching on this. I would like to buy this monitor if Philips upgrades this monitor to make it right for 4k movies, but for now, I have to return it.

    Phillips 328E9FJAB-At 2460X1440 max resolution. Excellent all-around monitor for average home use.

    Please take note of this model number. as this review only covers this specific monitor at 2460 x 1440 and it does not address higher res 4K monitors. Aside from the excellent picture quality does not give any relevant info regarding any other Model. $299 – It was well-packaged and there are no bad pixels. That’s about right. A fine monitor at a good price if you are not buying it for Gaming. A VA panel with 1 Display Port, 1 HDMI, with 1 D-Sub (VGA). Ships with 16:9 native resolution 2560 x 1440 that is good for Display Port, HDMI; VGA is 1920 x 1080. For me, 2K is the best resolution that gives a fair amount of screen real estate without text being too small. For gaming, 4k gives you the big picture for sizing up the battlefield, so this is not a gaming monitor. With fonts at 11 and MS Word page view set to 100 %, I can squeeze in the sides of the Word borders so they are just touching the edges of an 8 1/2 x 11 page. That just fits 3 separate Word documents left to right across the screen leaving a few inches of background at the bottom of a single page; or – within Word a single document will easily automatically fill the screen with three consecutive pages. With a little mouse work, I can get 4 File Explorer frames on the screen only showing Name, Size, (Size Column moved over next to Name), and Date Modified. I can copy, cut, paste files in and out of four simultaneous onscreen panels. A 21:9, 34 inch 4k monitor would fit more, but my brain can only do so much. I can chew gum and walk, but that’s about it. Text in Word looked good with my eyes about 27″ away from the screen. For my use, I can’t see that smaller size is practical and practical is what I want. With the VESA mounting arm I could move it closer if I choose. With a 34 inch or larger screen moving to a higher res or larger monitor in any closer is a trade-off . Audio is Line in and Audio Out, or output from HDMI and Display Port. I just plug my headphones into a 3.5mm extension cable so I don’t have to reach but a few inches to plug into the Audio out. Volume control is adjustable via the OSD Menu. I set the OSD volume at max and use the PC Volume Control. It works good with my Headset. This monitor comes with an HDMI and a VGA cable only so you’ll need to supply your own Display Port cable. Out of the box the upright part of the stand is already attached. Just use the attached Thumbscrew on the Base to attach it. Whatever the Input, it’s a great picture with the defaults except for Brightness. The Windows 8.1 Settings Main page is a relatively little amount of print with about 90% white background. Zowie! I was seeing fireflies, should’ve put on sunglasses. Turned Brightness down from 100 to 45. Ahh, that’s better, didn’t have to mess with anything else. A word about screen size. Recall it’s measured diagonally, 31.5 inches for this monitor. If Measured straight across edge to edge, it’s 28 inches. Factor in the 3/8 border and you lose 3/4 inch, so actual screen width is 27.25 inches. Still, a good size monitor. A 32 inch monitor at 21:9 is wider than at 16:9. Picture the diagonals in your mind. Few monitor screens actually meet up with the thin bezel edge. Most have a thin border. If you want the User Manual, typically, you must download it online. You can go online to the manufacture and download a User Manual to find the dimensions of any monitor before you buy. I downloaded and checked it out to determine if I wanted to buy. Reading the Manual was crucial in my decision as it answered just about every question I had. The Manual is a good way to get all the detailed specs, inputs, weight, frequency, resolution. It showed a menu tree of all the available selections, how to use the OSD reveals the inner workings such as compatibility; PBP, PIP, (or not, as is the case with this monitor). What I was also able to determine pre-purchase was that the OSD menu buttons are in the middle at the bottom on the back side of the monitor opposite the Logo. That makes it the same for both Right and Left-handed users, i.e. more comfortable for Lefties. The single button is larger than most; hold for three seconds to turn it off. The button acts in joystick fashion. I was a little clumsy at first, but it didn’t take long for it to feel familiar. Takes less than three seconds to change inputs. I prefer this single button joystick type action to the multi-buttons along the bottom of other monitors. I have three inputs, three Computers. One with Display Port, one with HDMI, my Mac Mini has both, i.e. mini Display Port with a 6 inch adapter cable, or Mini Display Port adapted to VGA so I used the VGA Input from the Mac. Most anything 2012 or later, PC or Mac will have HDMI 1.4 or Display Port 1.2 outputs, all that’s needed for this monitor. In my case, less is more. Without all the high-end specs, this monitor is very stable, will work with onboard graphics. Might have to change Bios to IGFX. Bios Default of PCIe x 16 number 1 slot usually works in any case. it should work right out of the box with most any computer, plug and play, but, it’s likely you will turn down the brightness If you have two Computers, chances are they both have HDMI Ports. Phillips chose to cover all the bases. VGA displays at 1920 x 1080. HDMI to VGA Adapters are cheap and plentiful if you have to use the VGA. My 3 computers with three different outputs all work right out of the box utilizing all three ports. My Mac, using a mini-Display Port to VGA adapter, the screen really looks beautiful on the Mac at the lower resolution but it may become a game changer. I’ll use it some to determine that. There are relatively few 32 inch 2K curved monitors available with VESA Mounts. I’m puzzled some don’t provide VESA mounting. 2 HDMI inputs. That’s the industry standard with every other 2K monitor, but Phillips had broadened the scale by providing three different inputs that cover all the bases, but, again, The display’s native resolution is only for Display Port and HDMI. Whatever your computer, this monitor is plug and play. It is not at all finicky. It’s pretty bare bones, 59 HZ max vertical frequency; not enough for serious gaming. What it is, as my heading forecasts, a good monitor for home use. e.g. If I do a jigsaw puzzle of 400 pieces, there’s enough room around the sides to sort and stack the pieces, leaving the puzzle area clean and open. Gaming? Yeah, Mah Jong, Solitaire and Jigsaw is about my speed. A pleasure to indulge in these diversions as the picture quality is first rate, to the point that compared to another monitor with higher specs, you wont be able see much, if any, difference; not enough to consider spending the extra money. At any price, the picture quality is more than satisfactory. The VESA mounting holes are 100mm. No VESA mounting screws supplied and the stand mounting screws are too short. This is typical. Not their problem; though you may have to waste some gasoline finding the right-sized screws, i.e. 4 x 10mm. Luckily, I had some standoffs and long screws supplied with my mounting stand or it would have been an Easter Egg hunt to find the right hardware. The mounting plate fastened without any bending and it easily slid right down onto the VESA mounting arm plate. Ideally, the screws should insert about 1/4 inch (6-8mm) into the monitor. In the final analysis, it is often how much money and/or how much time and effort that decides for us. Overall, Phillips Manual did provide a lot of good pre-sale information, better than most, but the manual clearly shows analog input, (VGA) as 2560×1440 Res. Maybe it is on a later model Mac, but my 2012 Mac Mini gets 2560×1440 out of the Display Port only, 1920 x 1080 from VGA adaptor. Nothing wrong with the monitor; most likely, whoever wrote the manual got it wrong. This caused me to think of whether I would send it back as I wanted 2560×1440 for all three computers. I have 1 DP cable. my Mac Mini sits a little behind and above my Lenovo laptop. Mini sits backwards with rear ports facing towards me Mini Display Port is about 8 inches away from Lenovo Port. Very easy to swap the cable between the two. I decide to leave the Mini with VGA and Laptop with Display Port. 1920×1080 on the Mac is just gorgeous, and the big screen works for all that I do on the Mac. If needed I can use the DP cable. Though it’s handy to have both at the same res, it’s not all that necessary. HDMI from my desktop is native res and switching inputs of all three is easily accomplished. 34 inch gaming monitor with 21:9 would have PBP, but I decided I don’t need it. Buying a monitor is very subjective. There’s no getting around the fact that you can’t always decide fresh out of the box and you don’t always get all the information you need from the online ads. I had to use it a while in real world daily usage to make up my mind. Returning a big monitor takes some effort, as you have to clean the screen and send it back packaged EXACTLY as you got it and probably have to pay 40-50 dollars to ship. If you just say that you don’t like the monitor, you may not be able to return without paying a premium. My experience is it’s easier to buy a computer than a monitor. Also, monitor manufacturers aim at the PC market. Mac Graphics on older Mini’s are not as broad-based as PC’s and MacBooks have their own specific monitor specs, so, if it works with PC, but not the same on a Mac… Conclusion: I did not have any problem with the operation of the monitor; it just works, I especially like the large, curved screen. It is, as they say, an immersive experience. I have some beautiful background pics. With such great picture quality; became enraptured; I got lost in one of them. Wow, so beautiful, even at 1920 x 1080, a whole other level of experience. My lone Con; only has 1 instead of 2 hdmi inputs, not a problem with only 1 Computer. Worst case for two computers, if needed you can get a $90.00 Geforce GT1080 card to provide a Display Port, while HDMI 1.4 or higher is standard on most recent Macs or PC’s. I needed a steady work horse, not a thoroughbred racer. Something useful. This monitor more than fits the billWalter O.

    I thought I could get away with replacing my dead, inexpensive 2nd monitor with another inexpensive one. After some research I decided I’d try this 24″ Phillips. It claims wide color, 129% sRGB, etc, etc. Maybe it would be “good enough” for photo editing on the cheap. Nope. The eye strain was incredibly bad, the colors garish and the text soft and pixelated. I tried to adjust/calibrate the image, but every attempt was just another version of unacceptable. I couldn’t get it back in the box and returned quickly enough. My 5 year old, bottom of the line AOC is so much better than this Phillips monitor. Anyway, I corrected this mistake with a BenQ monitor. More expensive? Yes. Better? Absolutely. The lesson here is that monitors are like sunglasses. There is quality, there is cheap, the prices reflect that, and nothing in between.

    Very sharp, but a bit dim and if you can’t stand Windows scaling, this is not the monitor for you.

    Reviewing the 4K curved 32″ monitor.The colors are very good, but the monitor just isn’t bright enough, even at 100. Also, text is too small at 100% scaling, even at 32″. I can’t use Windows’ scaling because it looks like trash. Maybe it wouldn’t bother other people, I don’t know. That’s not the monitor’s fault, but it is what it is.The backlight also seems to have a very slightly flickering to it that I can notice if I pay attention. Maybe I just expected too much from a 32″ 4k panel for $350.Last month I bought the Philips 2k 32″ curved monitor (model 328E9FJAB), which is noticeably brighter, has better color and no noticeable flickering backlight. I thought the pixels were just slightly too large with a 32″ 2k, but overall that monitor is much better, so I think I will be returning the 4k and keeping the 2k.

    NOT VESA compatible. Probably a good monitor, but you can’t mount it.

    I purchased 2 of these to be mounted on a dual monitor bracket. The Philips monitor is set for 75mm which is fine, but when you attach a bracket that could support 75mm or 100mm, the bracket blocks the inputs. That is just poor design. No one makes a 75mm ONLY VESA bracket. I can’t believe they don’t get more complaints. I contacted Philips and they understood the issue, and suggested that the bracket might not be VESA compatible, but I’m convinced that if I switched out brackets I would still have the same problem. So I returned both monitors. What is most frustrating is that it will take 3-5 days to get my refund, then 2 days for whichever monitor I get, so its a week wasted because Philips wasn’t smart enough to test their design. I’ve previously been loyal to the Philips brand, but this is a sour taste in my mouth.
