ISO 13406-2 Class I compliant dot-defect-free display
Bright dots and dark dots are defects in a LCD panel. While some manufacturers still consider bright and dark defects in a LCD panel an inevitable part of the manufacturing process, Philips doesn't. Philips monitors, compliant with ISO 13406-2 Class I standard, are produced with zero tolerance for LCD panel defects and backed by Philips PerfectPanel™ globally valid warranty providing repair or replacement of any LCD monitors that display even a single defective bright or dark dot.
SXGA 1280 x 1024 resolution for sharper display
For graphics monitors, the screen resolution signifies the number of dots (pixels) on the entire screen. For example, a 1280-by-1024 pixel screen is capable of displaying 1280 distinct dots on each of 1024 lines, or about 1.3 million pixels.
5ms fast response time
On-Off response time is the period required for a liquid crystal cell to go from active (black) to inactive (white) and back to active (black) again. It is measured in milliseconds. Faster is better: Lower response time means faster transitions and, therefore, results in fewer visible image artifacts in the display of transition of texts and graphics. On-Off response time is a more important measure in the display of business content like documents, graphs and photos.
90 degree screen rotation and smart cable management
The Super Ergo base is a monitor base that delivers ergonomic display comfort and provides intelligent cable management.
