Review: Philips 278E8QJAB, An almost perfect curved monitor

Curved monitors they are a somewhat new technology, with the first announced in 2014 with the main competitors presented by the powers in this field, LG and Samsung, which guaranteed quality from the beginningThese last Philips screens use high performance panels to offer UltraClara resolution images, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160).

However, it took a long time to perfect this technology. As with anything that is fresh and new, it requires many adjustments to make it 100% perfect.When Samsung and LG's first batch of curved TVs came to fruition, the "panel bleed" effect was a real problem that needed to be solved as quickly as Koreans could manipulate their fingers.

Philips278E8QJAB – Design


To say that this monitor is a beautiful piece is a complete underestimate, since It is much more than a beautiful design.As soon as you take this well-designed piece of equipment out of the box, know with certainty that this monitor will make you cry with joy and ecstasy.

The way the logo of Philips hangs from the monitor it's an ingenious way of being slightly different in a world where company logos are clearly engraved on the edge of the monitor. The logo hangs from the bottom of the screen, in a bit of transparent plastic with bold text ?Philips?In a prominent place in the center.

The way the curve is integrated into the screen bezels makes it a pleasant and cinematic experience, and the thinness of the team itself makes you wonder how Philips could achieve this. LThe screen comes with its own dedicated power block, but it's as small as this screen is thin.
