Philips 328C7Q

Review by Playwares

The Philips 328C7Q uses a 32" curved 1920x1080 8 bit matte 144hz VA panel with AMD Free-Sync and a perceived black depth increasing dark matte grey bezel.

Philips 278M6

Review by IT Hardware PL

Curved, matte, 1920x1080, 165hz, fully adjust-able and semi-wide gamut (120% sRGB or 20% sRGB over-saturation) 165hz VA panel with back-light strobing (1ms MPRT), a height adjustable stand, AMD Free-Sync (60-165hz Free-Sync range), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, VGA 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Philips is nearly perfectly accurate out of the box (especially for a budget panel), negligible input lag (2-4ms measured with the SMT Tool), and well balanced overdrive (Faster Response Time Setting).

Philips 272M Gaming

Review by Playwares

Matte, 1920x1080, 144hz, IPS panel with AMD Free-Sync, back-light strobing (MPRT), Displayport, HDMI, VGA and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Philips has up to 1400:1 contrast which is 30-40% higher than most AHVA/IPS/PLS panels, accurate but slightly too high (2.29 average) preset gamma, and a semi-wide gamut panel which over-saturates SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color by 25%, but does not under-saturate any colors.  The  272M has negligible input lag (2-3ms) and the overdrive is controlled by the Smart Response menu setting and performs best when set to the third setting which provides fast pixel response times and minimal overshoot on par with the AOC 27G2.
