Philips 258B6QUEB & 279P1 – 2 of the best monitors in 2021 @ZDnet
ZDNet.com, a highly-frequented global technology website with about 12.4 million monthly visitors, recently published an article titled “Best monitors in 2021” in its “UK edition” as well as global editions.
Verdict: “Philips’ 329P9H was one of the first monitors to use USB-C to combine a high-quality display with impressive connectivity for office users. That imposing 32-inch display is pretty expensive, but Philips has more affordable models, such as the 258B6QUEB, that are ideal for working from home. It is, admittedly, still a little expensive for a 25-inch display, but its 2560-by-1440 resolution (117.5ppi) is easy on the eye, and provides a number of preset display modes for office work and graphics work, and video watching. The stand allows you to tilt, swivel and adjust the height, and you can rotate the screen into the upright (portrait) position as well. It’s well connected too, with HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI and VGA ports for older laptops and PCs, as well as USB-C for video and data connections, and even charging your laptop over a single cable. And, like its 32-inch big brother, the 258B6QUEB includes a handy hub that provides three USB 3.0 ports for your office peripherals, stereo speakers with audio input and output. There’s even an RJ-45 Ethernet port for connecting to a wired network.”
Verdict: “Priced at just $379.99, the Philips 279P1 provides a 27-inch display with full 4K resolution (3840 x 2160, 163.2dpi). It supports 122% of the sRGB color standard, making it suitable for graphics, presentations and photo-editing work, as well as general office productivity software. The stand also allows you to adjust height, tilt and swivel, and even to rotate the screen into the upright (portrait) position. The 279P1 includes two HDMI ports, DisplayPort and USB-C for video input. The USB-C port makes it ideal for working from home with your laptop, as it can charge the device; it also allows you to use the built-in USB hub that includes four additional USB ports and RJ-45 Ethernet for a wired network connection.”
