This is an odd little monitor, and there seems to be barely any discussion or user feedback about it in English.

Points of interest:

  • HDMI 2.0
  • MHL
  • 1:1 pixel mapping
  • PIP (proper, all-inputs-supported PIP by the looks of it)
  • 10Bit colour support (8Bit + A-FRC)
  • USB 3.0 Hub "with fast charging", although I can't find fast charge current spec
  • Webcam (probably rubbish) and mic
  • Height adjustable stand with portrait rotation
  • Cheaper than the competing Dell P2415Q (at least it is in my country)


It even has a DVI port on it.

The HDMI 2.0 port puts it at a significant advantage over the Dell P2415Q, because now that's two full-fat 4K ports available instead of just one. The DVI also does 4K@30Hz.

It's using the same panel as the P2415Q. I was quite happy with my P2415Q's panel, I only returned it because of the displayport sleep issue. When last I looked, the muppets at dell still hadn't fixed that DP issue, so maybe this Philips monitor is my second chance at that panel. I'm just a little hesitant given the lack of reviews.

How safe is it to infer typical backlight bleed and uniformity from the P2415Q? As I understand it, the panels and backlight assembly are distributed as a single part, so the critical QC happens at the panel manufacturer. I guess Philips' housing could deform the entire thing and change the panel characteristics that way. I recall the P2415Q being very sensitive to pressure around the bezel.

I'd like to know what this monitor does to 23.976Hz input, and what it's onboard scaling is like.

241P6VPJKEB; now there's a catchy, memorable name.
