For all professional users, Philips has introduced a new Thunderbolt 4 monitor. The Philips 27B1U7903 offers a 4K UHD resolution and reaches a brightness of up to 1,400 nits with HDR content thanks to mini-LED.
The Philips 27B1U7903 in detail
With the Philips 27B1U7903, you can expect a particularly high-quality new monitor. It has a screen diagonal of 27 inches or 68.6 cm and resolves in 4K UHD with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels at 60 Hz.
The technical highlight is the mini-LED backlight of the IPS panel, which comes with 2,304 local, individually controllable dimming zones, allowing for deeper blacks and brighter whites. This gives the monitor a typical brightness of 1,000 nits and even 1,400 nits for HDR content, earning it a VESA DisplayHDR-1400 certification.
HDR content can also be displayed in various modes, such as HDR Premium, HDR Effect, HDR Warm, HDR Basic. The manufacturer specifies the contrast ratio with 1,300:1, 1.07 billion colors are displayed, while the DCI-P3 color space is covered by 97.2%. The color accuracy with Delta E <1 is also more than impressive.
The picture is also optimized using Quantum Dot technology, which precisely outputs light to produce more intense blues, greens and reds. Thanks to MultiView, content from two connected devices can also be displayed simultaneously.
Many connections, including Thunderbolt 4
The Philips 27B1U7903 connects via DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports, or Thunderbolt 4. The latter acts as a data upstream, offers image transfer, and PowerDelivery with a maximum of 90 watts for charging smartphones, notebooks, or other devices.
Compared to conventional USB-C monitors, the Thunderbolt 4 technology offers lightning-fast data transfer speeds of 40 Gbit/s. This is joined by four USB 3.2 ports, a 3.5 mm jack output and an Ethernet LAN port.
In addition, the monitor features a PowerSensor to help save power. Via an infrared sensor, the Philips 27B1U7903 detects whether someone is in front of the screen and, if not, automatically reduces the brightness. This is said to reduce power consumption by up to 80 percent while increasing the display’s lifespan.
