There are five function buttons and a Power switch on right side of the rear-cabinet panel. The function buttons are used to access and navigate the on-screen menus, where you can adjust basic settings, including Brightness, Contrast, Color Temperature, Gamma, and Color Format (RGB and YUV). The VP2468 offers advanced color settings, such as RGB Gain and Offset settings, as well as RGBCMY Hue and Saturation settings, which allow for hardware-based calibrations using an optional colorimeter/software solution.

The Philips 276E8VJSB monitor is based on an IPS panel with dithered 10-bit color depth (8-bit + 2-bit FRC) and ~109% sRGB color gamut.
The slightly extended sRGB gamut provides you with more saturated colors (not over-saturated, which is good), which makes them look more lifelike.
If you need to do some color-critical work, you can limit the gamut to the sRGB space for less vibrant, but more accurate color reproduction.
Overall, the colors are accurate, consistent, and vibrant, as expected from a 4K IPS monitor. Further, the 178-degree wide viewing angles ensure that the image won’t shift in color, contrast, or brightness when you look at the screen at an angle.
Pros & Cons
- AOC 27” 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 UHD LED monitor
- Ips panel with wide Viewing angles and produces over 1 billion colors for rich details
- 3-Sided frameless design, ideal for seamless setup. Brightness (typical) - 350 cd/m²
- 5ms response time for fast Responses

This is an above-average IPS panel aimed at the office with productivity in mind and as such, it promises accurate colors with over 100% sRGB, reasonable connectivity, and crucially, native 4K resolution. Boasting 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, the U2790PQU sits above the otherwise identical Q2790PQU in AOC’s product tree.
It’s also worth noting that there’s a considerable design flair and sturdy build quality evident here, and all in all, the pricing of this monitor seems surprisingly low. 4K IPS panels with 10-bit color depth and 60Hz refresh rates tend to cost more than this. For example, we recommended the similarly specified BenQ PD2700U at the beginning of the year – and AOC has managed to undercut that price by a quarter.

The Asus VP28UGQ is so easy to put together that you won’t even need a tool belt, nevermind a tool box. You simply insert the panel into the thick stem sticking out of the circular base, paying attention to alignment. A screw with a handle makes it easy to tighten by hand. I used a screwdriver to make sure things were as tight as possible.
Sick of screens eating away at bezels? Well, with the Asus VP28UGQ you won’t be. Many (often pricier) monitors are moving toward slimmer bezels. But the VP28UGQ’s black, matte plastic border is a proud 0.75 inch (19.05mm) thick. That’s enough space for a shiny Asus logo and, unnecessarily, HDMI and DisplayPort ones. (Sure, brag about the brand, but are we really so proud of our ports?)

The U2719D is similar in design to that model, the Editors’ Choice-award-winning Dell 27 USB-C Monitor (P2720DC), as well as to many other Dell business monitors from recent years. That means it is both stylish-looking and utilitarian, as well as feature-rich.
Factoring in the stand, the monitor measures 15.4 by 24.1 by 7.1 inches (HWD) and weighs 18.8 pounds. The 27-inch in-plane switching (IPS) flat panel has a native resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, known as QHD or 1440p, at a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Its pixel density of 109 pixels per inch (ppi) is fine for general-purpose use and basic photo editing. (All else being equal, the greater the pixel density, the sharper the image should be.)
