Given the Brilliance 328P’s ‘pro’ remit at an aggressive price, it’s no surprise to find Philips has opted to keep things low-key, sartorially speaking. The 328P’s design is discrete to the point of being anonymous. You won’t find any LED mood lighting or so much as a single flourish of colour.
What you do get is a robust chassis and a very stable stand that’s adjustable in every which way, including tilt, height, swivel and pivot. Philips also throws in a comprehensive set of cables that cover all of the DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI and VGA display interfaces that the screen itself supports.
The inclusion of a four-port USB hub with both USB 3.0 and fast charging support is also welcome addition, especially for those who prefer to keep a PC tower neatly tucked away and use their monitor as the primary point for peripheral connectivity.
Keeping with the tidiness theme, the vertical aspect of the stand also includes an aperture for cable management. Likewise, the panel’s power supply is integrated into the chassis proper, so the 328P makes for a great choice overall for those who want to keep cables and clutter under control.
As for the OSD controls, they take the form of touch sensitive zones on the lower bezel marked up to indicate the relevant functionality. In other words, for what it’s worth they aren’t physical buttons that can be operated exclusively via feel.
It’s also worth noting that the 328P only requires moderate assembly out of the box to set up its two piece stand. Or you can opt to make use of the provided support for a 100mm by 100mm VESA mount. Thus you can attach the 328P to custom stands or arms if that kind of thing is your bag
