MMD has announced a new Philips Moda monitor, said to be its thinnest ever. Headlined "Ultra-slim Looks, Ultra Wide Colour," the Philips 245C7QJSB is a 24-inch full HD IPS monitor which offers a stylish slim appearance with an extended range of on screen colours. Furthermore, Philips boasts the new 24-inch Moda display offers a 3-side frameless design for seamless visuals.

"This is the first in a new line-up of displays for the home to combine elegant Moda looks with Ultra Wide Colour Technology," said Artem Khomenko, Product Manager Philips monitors Europe at MMD. "Most home users use their display both for working productively and for entertainment – and the new 24-inch display offers the best of both. It looks good in living spaces or on desks, and also provides a brilliant viewing experience with colour reproduction that is more realistic than ever."

How thin are the monitor and its bezels? The monitor is said to be just 5.2mm thick, side-on (not including the stand of course). Meanwhile the top and side bezels are less than 2.5mm thick. As you might conclude yourself, Philips says that makes the Moda is great for multi-monitor setups.

Worth looking at more closely is Philips' Ultra Wide Colour Technology. The marketing blurb claims that this newly implemented tech provides "more natural-looking greens, vivid reds and deeper blues to bring media entertainment, images and even productivity alive." Little is given by way of explaination except that this is the result of "hardware enhancements", not some equaliser or calibration jiggery pokery. The Moda uses an IPS panel with 16.7 million colours capable of displaying a NTSC 101.4 per cent (CIE1976) colour gamut.

Other eye pleasing details are the display's Flicker-Free technology (regulating brightness for a steadier picture), SmartContrast, and SmartImage (which auto-adjust settings to the content being displayed) all working together. The provided stand looks swish but provides only tilt adjustments; -5/+20 degree.

DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA connections are provided, as are D-Sub, HDMI and power cables.

Philips told HEXUS that the new Philips 245C7QJSB C-Line display, with an RRP of £189, will be available in February 2017. Full specs are below.

“As you might conclude yourself, Philips says that makes the Moda is great for multi-monitor setups.”

Not sure how this is supposed to work without a standard VESA mount!
lol… 5.2mm thick, maybe if you ignore that bit that sticks out at the bottom with the ports in it…

I honestly can't say the last time I felt my computer display needed to be thinner since I moved to TFT over 10 years ago… however I do like the reducing bezels on the side for multi monitor setups but kind of feel dual monitors are becoming redundant with super wide screens and I like a small bezel (ideally neutral grey or black) on a single screen to help with contrast with background etc…
It might be of interest to photo/video editing people, but the wide colour gamut kills it for everything else until the software support is there.
