Two of the most remarkable details at first glance are removing frames and bezels, which allow a more expansive image result; and an ultra-thin profile finish that combines with the minimalist design of the base. Both great qualities for use in multi-monitor setups.
With a 27-inch IPS panel and a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, the low refresh rates of 75 Hz (only achievable through the DisplayPort connection and in resolutions below 4K) and its high response time of 5 milliseconds focus more on content creators and multimedia content playback. Although that does not mean that we can find other interesting qualities such as AMD FreeSync, intended to offer a smoother and more fluid gaming experience.
And is that this screen uses a high-performance panel with UltraClear 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160), which, added to the DisplayHDR 400 and its high brightness, offers spectacular contrast and colors, with more defined brightness areas and dark tones deeper and more nuanced.
Availability and price
Still without a specific date, it is expected that the Philips 279C9 will begin to be sold from the brand’s web store from the end of this month of August, and under a price of 489 euros.
