Amsterdam, 16 June 2020 – MMD, the leading display specialist and brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the Philips 272B1G Full HD monitor, designed for optimal comfort and productivity, with reduced environmental impact in mind. This 27" (68.6 cm) LCD monitor is a further improvement on the greenest display launched last year, the Philips 241B7QGJ. The new model offers ecologically-minded professionals a full set of innovative tools to boost performance at work while respecting the environment. Delivering sensible power savings, the 272B1G also enables great productivity thanks to a full range of high-performance and intelligent ergonomic features, including IPS technology, LowBlue Mode and SmartErgoBase.

This is the top choice for ecologically-minded professionals looking for super energy-efficient tools with brilliant performance, meeting the latest power efficiency standards as ensured by the Energy Star 8.0 certification.

The Philips 272B1G monitor is further proof of Philips’ long-standing commitment to sustainability and the environment. It is specifically designed to have the lowest environmental impact possible. Compliant with RoHS standards1, this eco-friendly monitor is entirely free of substances such as lead, mercury and PVC/BFR. Moreover, all plastic body parts, metal chassis parts, and packing materials are 100% recyclable.

Sustainability is a mindset

Pairing the new energy-efficient design with an array of power-saving technologies, the Philips 272B1G is the state of the art for a new sustainable productivity model.

Among the technologies that help the Philips 272B1G step to a higher energy class while assuring excellent performance is the PowerSensor, which detects the absence of the user via harmless infrared signals and automatically reduces monitor brightness, alone cutting energy costs by up to 70 percent. Moreover, it also features LightSensor technology which adjusts picture brightness depending on the light conditions in the room. But it goes even further! The Philips 272B1G employs a new power-efficient feature: an LED backlight technology that maintains brightness and colour fidelity using significantly less energy. The A++ energy grade further underlines the energy efficiency of the model.

To perfectly complete its eco-conscious power savings, Philips added a Zero power consumption switch. At the flick of the 0-watt hard switch (conveniently located at the back of the display), the monitor is completely cut off from AC power. This results in zero power consumption, reducing your carbon footprint even further.
