The Philips 24E1N3300AE is a 24 inch Full HD Monitor from Philips, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 8-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte (3H) finish. The max. resolution it can display is 1920 x 1080 with a refresh rate of 75 Hz and a pixel density of 92 ppi.
Now, the next important feature of a Display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.
The Philips 24E1N3300AE is rated with a 121% sRGB color gamut coverage. The color accuracy on this monitor will be Lifelike! Apart from giving you a truly world-class experience, it will also be useful for professionals who are interested in photo editing and color grading business.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can produce.
Put Simply, it tells the ability of a monitor to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
In case of this Monitor, it is specified using sRGB.
But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a Monitor with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a monitor also impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast specification
A Display with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and may bleed backlight as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The static contrast ratio of above Display is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a Display with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More is better.
Note that, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a Display with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD Display with high contrast ratio over a 4K Display with low contrast ratio.
This Display comes with a static contrast ratio of 1000 : 1 — good enough for a display in this range.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 300 nits. The panel of this Monitor is powered by W-LED backlight.
If you need a display primarily for gaming, you would want to get a Monitor with lowest input lag and response times.
Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit.
Now, IPS panels in general are known for high input lags and response times. So, the input lag on this Display could be greater than 20ms. Though, Non-FPS and casual games should be playable.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the Monitor. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, get a Monitor that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
