Philips Launches The First Quantum Dot Monitor


Phillips is not a name you would associate with high end computer monitors and you would have been right in the past, but today, they have announced the Quantum Dot monitors, the 276E6ADSW and the 276E6ADSS.


The one at the very top is the ADSW and the just above here is the ADSS, there is not a single difference in the specs of the monitor, which would will find below, just in the colour of the stand.

The monitors are available through selected retailers as of today for the price of $300 each, which is not to bad, even more so if the image quality lives up to the promise. These are the specs for the monitor, which again is the same for both models, you can get the full list of specs here as well.
