The Philips Brilliance 272P7VPTKEB is very clearly for business users, and it gets most things just about spot on for this market. The 4K IPS panel provides superb colour accuracy, and with calibration even beats the brilliant Samsung C32HG70 to be the best we have ever tested, albeit only by a whisker. The feature set is also superb for the professional user.
The physical adjustments available are incredibly flexible, so you will be able to set this screen up as ergonomically as you want. The pop-up 2Mpixel webcam will be great for videoconferencing but with the ability to keep things private without needing masking tape. The USB hub is handy, and placed on the side for convenience. The PowerSensor system is also quite natty and will definitely save you a few watts whenever you leave your desk and forget to turn off your screen.
The OSD is a little oddly ordered, with image quality settings further down the order than you might expect, but there’s plenty there for the intended non-gaming user. The presets are usefully varied, and a greater level of adjustment is available if you want it.
The only really negative quality mark is the uniformity, both in terms of brightness and colour. The built-in speakers are also truly weedy, but they might be handy if you haven’t got any speakers at all. This is quite a pricey screen at over £600 for a 27in unit. But as a premium 4K monitor for business and professional users, the Philips Brilliance 272P7VPTKEB has plenty to commend it.
