Package & delivery set 

Philips 288P6

Monitor Philips 288P6 comes in a white cardboard box. This side walls contain an image of the device and its brief characteristics. Of course, the most important of them are the presence of a large screen with a diagonal of 28 inches and a support for resolution of 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160).

Design & features 

Philips 288P6

The main accent of model Philips 288P6 is usability and reliability. Nevertheless, its design isn’t a dull; it is standard for this type of monitors. Despite the thick frames around the display the case is comparatively thin and light - just 49 mm and 5.24 kg, respectively, and the power supply is located inside. On top 28-inch matrix features anti-glare matte panel. The remaining components of Philips 288P6 also don’t have glossy surfaces.

Philips 288P6

The screen is based on a fairly massive leg that due to the specialization of the monitor is made removable and has a lot of adjustments.

You can change the height of the screen (0 ... +150 mm), the angle of inclination (-5 ... +20 °) and orientation (portrait or landscape). The stand contains integrated hinge, allowing Philips 288P6 rotate around its axis at 65° to both sides. Also note that the leg is removable, and the type of fastening on the back of the monitor is compatible with VESA 100 x 100 mm. That is, the novelty can be placed not only on the table, but also to the wall.

Philips 288P6

Model Philips 288P6 is equipped with a fairly advanced system of interfaces. It features analog connector (D-Sub) and digital (DVI Dual-Link, DisplayPort and HDMI). The last one supports MHL standard, which means that the monitor can be connected directly to a compatible tablet or smartphone and use it as the source.

Multimedia features are extended by two built-in speakers with total capacity of 6 W and a headphone output. Sound transmission is realized through one of the digital ports or through a conventional audio jack (need to use the appropriate supplied cable). The sound quality of built-in speakers cannot be compared with full desktop speakers. Nevertheless, their capacity is quite enough for viewing movies from the Internet or videoconferencing. The volume is also quite sufficient for background music in the workplace.  

Philips 288P6

The model Philips 288P6 contains integrated USB hub on four ports, two of which correspond to the specifications USB 3.0, and other two to USB 2.0. The yellow plug supports fast recharging of connected gadgets. Also recall that the USB-cable is not included into delivery set and you need to buy it separately.

Manage and configuration of the monitor is realized by means of sensor elements made on the lower part of the body.

The OSD features a simple and convenient structure: tabs are to the left, and contents to the right. Selection of preset profiles is carried out not from the menu but due to the use a separate button on the monitor.

If you need to manually configure the monitor, the manufacturer has provided a lot of tools: in addition to the traditional settings for brightness, contrast, and basic colors intensity (R, G, B) here you can find options to select the sharpness, gamma, color temperature, black level.

Also note the support for functions of "Picture in Picture» (PIP) and "Picture by Pictures» (PBP). Using it you can simultaneously display two different sources, which is especially important for monitors, possessing such a large screen area.
