Philips raises the bar with a new 43-inch UHD monitor

Philips is about to pull out lately, and now it has announced the launch of its largest Ultra HD resolution screen to date, the 43-inch Philips BDM4350UC, resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and an interesting feature: Multiview 4K, which makes it possible to connect up to four video sources simultaneously.

The new Philips BDM4350UC monitor uses a high-performance panel with UltraClear brand technology, being able to display (according to the manufacturer) images and graphics as if they were real, no matter what its source application. This is ideal for CAD software users, because they allow them to get more precise details from their designs.

With this 43-inch screen on your desk, users will have more space to enjoy the unique experience with a 4K UHD view”, says Albert Ulfman, Product Manager of Philips monitors in Europe for MMD.

LG shows its new range of monitors and professional displays with WebOS 2.0

LG has shown its strategy for the professional B2B (Business to Business) market in the field of Digital Signage, consisting of different types of monitors with different technologies, aimed at facilitating tasks of advertising, information, exhibition or customer interaction.

For example, the LG 75UH5C D-LED is a professional D-LED screen with a resolution of 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) and bezels of only 14.9 mm on all edges (top, sides and bottom). However, the most striking thing about this model is that it has integrated the WebOS 2.0 operating system, something we will see in most monitors of this type shown, which coupled with WiFi connectivity and support for HTML5 , will serve as an information or advertising panel, for example, without having to connect a PC. There are also 86 and 98-inch models.

Apple iMac screens are 4K and 5K and got new processors

Apple has announced that all new iMacs will have a high-resolution Retina display, as the name “Retina” has always been quite ambiguous and it’s more a marketing concept that something concrete that denotes some special feature, we will talking about its resolution, which is true 4K (4,096 x 2,340 pixels) for the 21.5-inch iMac model and 5K for all 27-inch models.


We also found there the new Intel Core Skylake processors with expandable 8GB DDR3 memory, and the graphics AMD Radeon R9 M380, M390 and the M395X in the 27-inch models, while the 21.5-inch remains in the fifth generation. Now all iMac will have two Thunderbolt 2 ports (unfortunately no Thunderbolt 3) and WiFi 802.11ac.

Philips 272G5DYEB 27-Inch G-Sync Gaming Monitor User Review

This monitor is great!  For me it meets all the important criteria that are important for me in a monitor at the moment:

  • G-Sync – No tearing or input lag ever again
  • 144Hz – paired with G-Sync just great to look at, but hard to describe … everything is so “smooth” 🙂
  • 1080p – I like to play at the native resolution and still with all the hype around UHD I can’t use it as even my GTX970 can’t shoulder modern games on 1080p and if it can there still is down sampling.
  • 27 inches – Super size if you have a somewhat lower table and thus distance from the monitor.

Before I had the only other monitor that currently met these criteria, the Acer XB270H Abprz, but it had a relatively poor black level and even for a TN panel a narrow viewing angle. Because I couldn’t get used to the poor black level I got the Philips 272G5DYEB/00. When compared noticed that the black level was much better and had no blue tinge, as is the case with the Acer and that the viewing angles and brightness distribution was better. Otherwise, they were at a fairly similar, high level in all other respects (sharpness, brightness, contrast) (for TN panels), the color reproduction was perhaps a tick better on the Acer but nothing decisive. Overall, my choice was clear and the Acer was sold again.

Asus ROG PG278Q 27″ WQHD 2560×1440 144Hz 1ms Gaming Monitor User Review

The Asus PG278Q definitely is the best monitor that you can get for your money as a gamer.

The facto this has 4 reasons:

-> The resolution 2560×1440 provides 70% more than FHD and is appropriate for the 27”size. But it isn’t as ridicules as 4K resolution that cannot be used for gaming with the current graphics card generation, even in SLI.

-> 120/144HZ. Not only during longer gaming sessions, but also in the daily PC work (Coding, Office, …) the image with 120/144HZ acts subjectively quieter and more pleasant than with 60HZ. Anyone who has savored the added value can’t go back.

BenQ XL2420G Gaming Monitor Review

Although NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology has been among us for over a year, it hasn’t been until the last few months that we’ve started to see monitors specially designed to make the most of a reasonable price, always taking into account the fact that we’re talking about high quality peripherals aimed at a public range where price is not the most important variable. We’ve tested the new BenQ XL2420G and this are our impressions.

In spite of its clear “gaming” orientation, the new BenQ monitor displays a discrete and almost conservative esthetic, except for subtle parts in red. The panel fits very easily in one of the best supports we’ve seen in years, with height adjustment (130 mm.) and inclination (from -5°to +20°) and that incorporates solutions as practical as a cable conductor and a transport hook.

Along the bezel we find capacitive tactile buttons to control menus, the power button and the integrated IR emitter (necessary for 3D mode). Unlike other models, BenQ has situated it on the lower bezel, which may be a problem if we use bulky peripherals as a wheel or a joystick with throttle. The firm also includes the S-Switch, a control system where we can select between three predefined modes and navigate through the configuration menus more comfortably.
