9/1/2012 3:02:39 AM

Although using the IPS panel, Phillips 227EQPH is very thin and light (3.68 kg including stand).

The cover is made of plastic; the front path is made of transparent plastic, which is in violet and opaque. The backside plastic layer is in black and the two sides look glossy both.

The display look nice in general view but its structure is not solidity. The screen is attached to the stand with an axis which is reinforced by a tiny screw. Therefore, the screen can be shaking a lot even when you just touch it slightly. The 4 front paths are flattened sharply so it is not convenient to bring around. In the front side, right under screen, there are 2 sensors which will detect your presence in front of the display. If you are not there, the screen will automatically reduce the brightness to save energy. Touch-sensitive button ranges are in the right corner. However, they are not very sensitive and you have to put much pressure on them.

The backside is nice and glossy and has very few connection ports. You can see a source port, 1 HDMI, 1 DVI and 1 VGA port from left to right. There is an HDMI Audio Out port and that’s all. There is no USB port like other IPS displays.

Finally, image quality should be paid most attention. The maximum resolution is Full HD 1,920x1,080. Displaying quality is fairly good, colors look vivid and bright but images are not really clear. Viewing angle is very wide so when you see it from different places, the image quality remains unchanged.
