Philips is back on the track towards re-establishing itself as one of the biggest players in the monitor game. With the initial trickle now turning into a torrent of interestingly-designed products, it’s the company’s Blade 2 monitor which has caught our eye. Can the AMVA panel help project Philips’ Blade 2 monitor to an awarding assessment?
Philips uses an AMVA, or Advanced Multi-domain Vertical Alignment, panel which the company claims is capable of “super-high static contrast ratios” which can provide “extra vivid and bright images”. Another key feature derived from the AMVA technology is the flexible viewing angles. Up to 178° of horizontal and vertical viewing flexibility is achievable, making this monitor perfect for use in a wide-variety of scenarios.
A W-LED backlight system, 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 1920 x 1080 resolution, combined with many of Philips’ picture-enhancement technologies, make for a mouth-watering specifications sheet.
As we all know, a high-quality panel and appetizing specs sheet don’t make a monitor. Can the performance of Philips’ 24″ Blade 2 back-up the company’s buoyant claims?
