Philips 279C9: A borderless 4K UHD monitor with a USB Dock and Power Delivery
Philips has unveiled a new 4K UHD monitor, the 279C9. The Philips 279C9 has won an IF Design Award and is a Red Dot award winner too. The monitor has a 27-inch IPS panel that tops out at 60 Hz and 400 cd/m². It also has a typical contrast ratio of 1,300:1 and grey to grey response times of 5 ms. The display covers 90.7% of NTSC, 109% of sRGB and is DisplayHDR 400 certified. Additionally, the Philips 279C9 supports AMD FreeSync.
Philips boasts that the 279C9 has a "Zero Bezel Design", although there are clearly four equally-sized bezels. One of the highlights of the 279C9 is its USB Type-C port, which supports USB Power Delivery 3.0 (USB PD 3.0). According to Philips, the monitor can charge devices at up to 65 W/20 V. The Type-C port supports DisplayPort Alt mode too. Moreover, the monitor has USB 3.2 Type-A ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.4 connection.
The Philips 279C9 will be available to order from the end of August. The 4K monitor will retail for £439 in the UK and €489 in the Eurozone.
