Philips tempts creators with affordable 27-inch 4K display with USB-C, DCI-P3, more


Philips is out with a new Creator Series 4K display that looks to offer a range of valuable features at an affordable $500 price. Coming with this 27-inch 4K monitor is USB-C with 96W passthrough, DCI-P3 support, an IPS Black panel, KVM switch, an I/O hub, and more.

Philips launched the new Creator Series 27-inch 4K IPS Black Display (27E2F7901) that’s aimed at creative pros, prosumers, and more who are looking for a feature-rich display at a fair price.

Naturally, you’re not getting niceties like a metal build or an integrated webcam, but the Creator Series 27-inch 4K boasts a range of impressive features given its $500 price tag.

9to5Mac’s take

Philips is delivering a lot of bang for the buck with this 4K display.

It goes beyond most monitors in the $500 range with full power for MacBooks, IPS Black, DCI-P3 support, a robust USB hub with solid 3.2 Gen 2 specs, and even a KVM switch.

As mentioned above, you’ve got to be okay with a plastic build and no built-in webcam, but it’s a lot more affordable than Apple’s Studio Display or Samsung’s new ViewFinity S9 which go for $1,600+.

Stay tuned for hands-on details as my colleague Fernando will be testing out this display soon 😁.
