- Bright, beautiful colour recreation
- Great size for multi-tasking
- Too big for competitive gaming
Bigger is always better, right? Well, depends on who you speak with about this delicate subject, and when it comes to the Philips BDM3270, I am all for it.
I prefer a large PC monitor, but one of our team thinks the Philips BDM3270 is too huge, as if that is even a thing in these days of giant screens.
It is 32 inches across the diagonal, and that suits me just fine. But then I am not a competitive shooter player.
The Philips BMS3270 looks amazing and a very stable on the desk. And that’s another thing – you do really need a hefty office sized desk to make the most of the real estate.
I already play things like Forza on a 55 inch television and use a 27 inch for my gaming machine. So jumping to 32 inches is not that big of a shock. What I did like is the space for work windows.
A large screen is not just for games – I sometimes need several windows open at once and with 32 inches, it just makes sense to have them all separate and not sitting on top of each other. I know you can easily use Task View in Windows 10, but why bother when they are all there, and big enough to work on.
As I mentioned, there is someone on the team who didn’t much like the Philips BDM3270 because he plays pretty competitively on Counterstrike: Global Offensive and there is just too much area for his eyes to cover effectively all at the same time.
Whereas I loved it so much, I even fired up an old favourite, Far Cry 3, to see what it was like – and it was amazing.
Now some specs – the Philips BDM3270 comes with a native Quad HD 2560×1440, flicker free of course. On smaller monitor that will get tiny to look at, but with 32 inches, well, you know.
Philips says its 10-bit display delivers rich colour depth with 1.074 billion colours and 12-bit internal processing for recreating smooth, natural colours without gradations and colour banding.
The base tilts and turns in all sort of directions, including portrait, which always looks weird, but I guess someone likes it.
DisplayPort of course with a 15 metre cable, which sounds a little excessive, but still.
The company said: “These latest Philips screens deliver CrystalClear, Quad HD 2560×1440 or 2560×1080 pixel images. Utilising high-performance panels with a high-density pixel count, enabled by high-bandwidth sources like DisplayPort, HDMI, Dual link DVI, these new displays will make your images and graphics come alive.
Whether you are a demanding professional requiring extremely detailed information for CAD-CAM solutions, using 3D graphic applications or a financial wizard working on huge spreadsheets, Philips displays will give you CrystalClear images.”
There is it – the Philips BDM3270 is a sensational monitor. It looks good in design and more importantly it can deliver.
