BIG AND BRIGHT

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

The Philips Pro­fes­sional 273P3 LED is all about real es­tate. At 27 inches there are not many other mon­i­tors out there that give you more space. Even if they did, you would not be able to han­dle any­thing big­ger on your desk­top. The di­men­sions are so vast that you can eas­ily open a word file, watch a movie and keep an eye on the stock ticker while still leav­ing aside some space for an­other win­dow you might want to open.

Still, this mon­i­tor does not be­lieve in be­ing a power guz­zler. The in­tel­li­gent Pow­ersen­sor built into the front of the screen knows when there is no one in front of it and au­to­mat­i­cally switches to a low con­sump­tion mode, sav­ing up to 80 per cent power. The touch sen­si­tive con­trol panel ac­ti­vates the Smar­tim­age util­ity which lets you choose the best mode. The mon­i­tor came out in fly­ing colours ev­ery time we threw a 1920x1080 pixel HD im­age at it. Then there are in­built speak­ers good enough for you to get rid of the head­phones or ex­tra ta­ble top speak­ers.

It is easy to ad­just the height and in­cli­na­tion, but this also means the set­tings change if some­one keeps their hand on it.
