Philips has unveiled two 5000 series monitors featuring a Windows Hello-compatible webcam and 75Hz refresh rate.
First, we have the 27E1N5600HE, a 16:9 27in monitor running at a (2560×1440) QHD resolution with a 75Hz refresh rate alongside a 4ms (GtG) and 1ms (MPRT) response times. It uses an IPS panel with a W-LED backlight allowing for 300-nit of brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 102.02 per cent NTSC and 114.18 per cent sRGB colour gamut.
This screen includes a 5MP Windows Hello compatible webcam with a noise-cancelling mic plus two 5W speakers for video calls. Adaptive sync is also available for those looking for a bit of gaming during break time.
Connectivity-wise, there’s one HDMI 1.4, one DisplayPort 1.2, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 (upstream with a 65W power delivery), four USB 3.2 (downstream, one with fast charging), and an audio-out jack.
Next, we have the 24E1N5300HE, a 16:9 24in monitor running at a (1920×1080) FHD resolution with a 75Hz refresh rate alongside a 4ms (GtG) and 1ms (MPRT) response times. Again, we are in front of an IPS panel with a W-LED backlight capable of 300-nit brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 104.8 per cent NTSC and 120.9 per cent sRGB colour gamut.
It also features the same webcam, microphone, speakers, and connectivity, not forgetting the mandatory Adaptive sync technology.
Finally, both displays look near identical from the outside and can adjust in height, tilt, plus swivel.
The Philips 27E1N5600HE and 24E1N5300HE will be available to purchase from mid-June for £379 and £269, respectively.
