Philips 237E7QDSB: Essential work tool
User Rating

The gadgets and tools you use are essential in making work easier and faster. So if you are managing an office or a business, you would want your people equipped with the Philips 237E7QDSB LCD monitors.

For starters, this 23-inch LCD monitor comes in an elegant design with edge-to-edge glass and narrow bezels, providing a light and fresh face in the work place. Function-wise, the ultra-narrow borders mean minimum distraction and maximum viewing space. The monitor, without the stand, is slim at 49mm thickness. The large screen real estate is best for graphic design and professional applications.

The Philips 237E7QDSB’s picture quality is something not to be taken for granted. It gives vivid colors and crisp details from the 16:9 Full HD display, which has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. This makes viewing files or photos on applications that demand accurate colors and consistent brightness needs no constant adjustment. The AH-IPS display also gives wide viewing angles of 178/178 degrees, which allows watching or reading from any angle in front of the monitor.

Your employees will mostly be working in front of the computer all day. But rest assured that this will not cause any damage on their sight because the Philips 237E7QDSB has Flicker-free technology, which regulates the brightness of the screen and reduce flickers that causes eye fatigue.

The SmartContrast feature analyzes the contents displayed and automatically adjusts colors and controls backlight intensity. It has an Economy mode option where the contrast and backlight settings are fine-tuned for the appropriate display of everyday office applications and lower power consumption. In addition to that, there’s the SmartImage Lite, which enhances contrast, color saturation, and sharpness of images and videos in real time with the press of a single button.

Philips has discreetly placed the Menu Toggle Key at the rear side of the monitor to let the user make quick and easy adjustments to the monitor’s settings in the on-screen display menu. Connecting smartphones and other portable devices to the 237E7QDSB is a no brainer thanks to the Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) technology. Projecting mobile content to this HD Philips monitor is no sweat.
