Manufacturer's Description

The Philips 274E5QHAW Full HD 27" IPS LED Monitor with MHL is great as a main screen for your desktop computer, or as an auxiliary monitor for expanded computer or TV use. You can also use it to mirror what’s on your smartphone.

A more vivid kind of view
Boasting a crisp, cracking and colourful 1920 × 1080p resolution, the Philips 274E5QHAW outputs Full HD visuals to make your work and play even more of a pleasure.

Whether you’re watching a film, playing games, surfing the internet or finishing that big project, all of your graphics will be presented with stunning levels of detail, colour and sharpness. A 5 ms response time ensures that on-screen motion is rendered smoothly and naturally.

Forward-looking visual technologies
Exclusive to Philips, SmartImage Lite analyses on-screen content, dynamically enhancing contrast, colour saturation and sharpness according to the scenario you choose. At the press of a button, you can enjoy the best in display performance.

This Full HD 16:9 display also features TrueVision technology that employs a sophisticated algorithm to test and align the display. Some four times more stringent than Windows sRGB requirements, this method means you’ll enjoy screen performance far above the average.

Expanding your entertainment
The super-wide 178° / 178° viewing angle of this display ensures that more viewers can take in the sights on offer, making it great for sharing photos and videos, or previewing a piece of work to teammates before output.

Colour reproduction is enhanced, as are response time and power consumption in comparison to similar wide-angle view panels. Gamma fluctuation is reduced and so colours appear even across the viewing field and in pivot mode.

If you require great colour accuracy and consistent brightness – perhaps you’re retouching photos, creating graphics or using the internet – the display has you covered. Your entertainment is bolstered by rich, clear sound from two integrated 6 W stereo speakers. Fill the room with superior audio for more compelling entertainment.

Connect with confidence
The Philips 274E5QHAW Monitor features MHL, a mobile audio-visual interface that permits direct connections between high definition displays and MHL-certified mobile phones and other portable devices. Use an optional MHL cable to easily connect your devices to enjoy games, photos, videos and other apps on a larger scale, accompanied by full digital sound.

It also charges your device while you watch, ensuring there’s no loss of power midway through, and so the device is ready to use afterwards.

Use the two HDMI ports or the VGA port to connect the screen to a desktop computer, HD TV or a compatible high-definition appliance such as your games console or Blu-ray player.

Slick, minimalistic design
The Philips 274E5QHAW Monitor uses cutting edge panels to achieve a minimalistic approach where the outer bezel is limited to a thickness of just 2.5 mm. An in-panel 9 mm black matrix strip helps to significantly reduce dimensions so your eyes aren’t distracted and you get the largest viewing area possible.
