Philips 241S6QYMB

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

A PRO­DUC­TIV­ITY MON­I­TOR.

FOR THOSE LOOK­ING for a high-qual­ity panel for work or home, the Philips 241S6QYMB has a lot to of­fer. Rather than a TN panel, the 23.8-inch mon­i­tor uses an AH-IPS panel, with wide 178-de­gree view­ing an­gles. The Philips of­fers the usual 1,920 x 1,080 res­o­lu­tion, with a 60Hz re­fresh rate and 250cd/m2 bright­ness.

The 5ms GTG re­sponse time isn’t aimed at gamers, but is still good enough to avoid ghost­ing dur­ing some ca­sual play. The mon­i­tor also has a 1,000:1 con­trast ra­tio, which boosts to 20 mil­lion to 1 us­ing Philips SmartCon­trast.

The 241S6QYMB also makes it easy to get the per­fect view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, with a fully er­gonomic base of­fer­ing height (110mm down to al­most desk level), swivel, tilt and ro­ta­tion ad­just­ments.

We found the panel needed some mi­nor colour ad­just­ments out of the box, but over­all gives a vi­brant im­age with very even back­light­ing. The in­built speak­ers are a lit­tle tinny, but per­fectly fine for watch­ing that funny YouTube video. The 241S6QYMB has Dis­playPort, DVI and VGA in­puts, but no HDMI.
