Philips announces the 246E7QDS monitor
Philips has announced one more monitor after the BDM4350UC 4K model, which came into existence about two weeks ago. This time the company aims a little bit lower than before – the new monitor is called 246E7QDS and comes with a smaller 23.6-inch display but features PLS technology inside. The monitor works at the much lower but still decent Full HD resolution, but this is not necessarily bad news since the 246E7QDS will be definitely cheaper than the BDM4350UC model with its 4K resolution.
The 246E7QDS offers 178-degree horizontal/vertical viewing angles and boasts 82 per cent NTSC and 99 per cent sRGB coverage. The device also has Flicker-Free and SmartContrast technologies which prevent image flickering and provide better contrast quality. The monitor works at 60 Hz and features 5 ms of response time as well as 250 cd/m² of brightness and 1000:1 of dynamic contrast ratio. In the back the monitor has DVI-D and D-Sub ports as well as support for MHL-HDMI. In addition the Philips 246E7QDS needs just 19.5 watts of power when operating.
As you can see the 246E7QDS is nothing special but the monitor will do when it comes to office tasks, casual gaming and movies. Moreover the tech specs mean that the Philips 246E7QDS will be a cheap monitor. Sadly, the price of the new Philips monitor is unknown.
