Philips hits back by unveiling their newest 27-inch curved LCD monitor, the 278E8QJAB. Adopting a VA panel, this new 27-inch LED-backlight monitor (NTSC 104% & sRGB 130% corresponding) supports a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and provides 3000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 4ms response time and 178/178 degree viewing angles.
Utilizing the ‘Flicker-Free’ technology for reducing eye fatigue and ‘SmartContrast’ function to improve the contrast ratio, the 278E8QJAB comes equipped with built-in stereo speakers (3Wx2) and provides 1x D-Sub, 1x HDMI and 1x DisplayPort input ports. Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing yet. [Philips]
