Given the consistent and impressive growth of the video gaming industry, Philips monitors couldn’t fail to respond to the overall need for innovative and high-performance products that can combine design with essential features. Everything in this series has been streamlined to assure a gaming experience as seamless and as entertaining as possible, with a design that perfectly matches any interior.

“Our entry into the PC gaming segment gives us an opportunity to offer unique premium products, which will win consumers over – not only with their quality and best-performance features but also thanks to their design concept,” commented Stefan Sommer, Director Marketing & Business Management in Europe at AOC International Europe and MMD Monitors & Displays. “This important step has been done to meet consumers’ requests: youngsters want one product fit for all tasks, from studying to watching films to playing games, and at the same time being budget-friendly. The millennial audience, however, is more focused on design and innovative features. We are launching this new line to meet both targets’ requests.”


The first monitors of the new E Line to be launched are the Philips 242E1GAJ (60.5 cm / 23.8") and the Philips 272E1GAJ (68.6 cm / 27”).

The full package
The Philips 242E1GAJ and the Philips 272E1GAJ monitors feature a 16:9 Full HD display for detailed images and VA panels that allow 178/178° extra-wide viewing angles. Their 3-sided frameless design gives the feeling of an even larger display. All these together assure great visualisation for standard office applications, but it is foremost suitable for demanding graphics applications, web browsing, photos, films and gaming. For even more complete entertainment, the new 24” and 27” monitors feature a pair of high-quality stereo speakers built in.

Multiple options entertainment
The E Line delivers a seamless experience through the 144 Hz refresh rate, which redraws the screen image up to 144 times per second, effectively 2.4 times faster than a standard 60 Hz display. Such a fast-responding monitor is crucial in competitive gaming: it displays enemy movement in ultra-smooth motion, making them easier to target. Moreover, the fast 1 ms MPRT (motion picture response time) effectively eliminates smearing and motion blur and delivers sharper and more precise images to enhance your gaming experience. The Philips 242E1GAJ monitor is enriched with AMD FreeSync™ Premium, while the Philips 272E1GAJ offers Adaptive-Sync, both ensuring tear-free gameplay.

The new Philips gaming displays feature a quickly accessible OSD fine-tuned for gamers, which offers multiple modes to better support the challenges they are facing on screen. This allows users to always get the best gaming experience with their monitors, which can now adapt even better to the game being played.

Visuals matter
The E Line gaming monitors feature Ultra Wide-Color technology, which delivers a wider spectrum of colours for a more brilliant picture, bringing media entertainment, images and even productivity more alive. Another technology employed to enhance image quality is SmartContrast, which analyses the contents displayed and automatically adjusts colours and control backlight intensity. The E Line also features the Flicker-Free technology for more comfortable viewing and LowBlue Mode for easy-on-the-eyes productivity.

The Philips 242E1GAJ monitor is available now and the Philips 272E1GAJ monitor will be available starting from mid-October with an RRP of £149 and £199 respectively.
