  • Windows Vista ready
    Philips Vista-ready monitors are empowered for vibrant, exciting display of this new, visually sophisticated and demanding Windows operating system, designed to enhance your entertainment experience, make you more productive and help you control your computing experience at home and in the office. Viewing, finding and organizing information for work or play is made quick, efficient and easy.

  • Widescreen design
    A wide screen has a wider aspect ratio for displaying more entertainment or information to have more fun and get more done.

  • 8ms response time (On/Off)
    On-Off response time is the period required for a liquid crystal cell to go from active (black) to inactive (white) and back to active (black) again. It is measured in milliseconds. The faster the better. Lower response time means faster transitions and, therefore, results in fewer visible image artefacts in the display of transition of text and graphics. On-Off response time is a more important measure in the display of business content like documents, graphs and photos.

  • Super Ergo Base
    The Super Ergo base is a monitor base which delivers ergonomic display comfort and provides intelligent cable management. The base's people-friendly height, swivel, tilt and rotation angle adjustments position the monitor for maximum comfort which can ease the physical strains of a long workday; intelligent cable management reduces cable clutter and keeps the workspace neat and professional.

  • Screen tilt and swivel
    Screen tilt and swivel is a mechanism built into the base allowing the monitor to swivel and tilt backward or forward.

  • Flame retardant case
    PC/ABS plastic composite is the industry-best tough, flame-retardant casing material, a space-age compound deployed in the aerospace and automotive industries as well as in fire detectors that is compliant with most stringent fire safety standards.

  • Lead-free
    Lead-free display products are designed and produced in compliance with strict European Community Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standards that restrict lead and other toxic substances that can harm health and the environment.

  • Dual input
    Dual input provides connectors to accommodate input of both analog VGA and digital DVI signals.

  • USB 2.0 port
    The universal serial bus or USB is a standard protocol for linking PCs and peripherals. Because it delivers high speed at a low cost, USB has become the most popular method for connecting peripheral devices to a computer. A port located on a monitor directly in the user's line of sight provides easy, high-speed connectivity for USB devices at a convenient location. (USB 2.0 support is dependent on your PC's USB configuration; when connected to a PC that supports USB 2.0, your monitor is USB 2.0 compatible)

  • SmartControl
    PC software for fine tuning display performance and settings. Philips offers users two choices for display setting adjustment. Either navigate the multilevel On Screen Display menu through buttons on the display itself or use the Philips SmartControl software to easily adjust the various display settings.
