Gaming on a big screen is the ultimate. The experience is just at another level, significantly decreasing if not eliminating eye strain while viewing crisp colors and fast-moving images. The home setup is most comfortable. An ergonomic chair, Lazyboy, or sofa plus a widescreen that can be anywhere from 27, 32, to 55 inches with surround sound makes for the best gaming.
Philips Monitors’ portable displays offer a mobile entertainment experience like never before.
But what about the times when you want a change of scene? Or need to be out of the house and still want to play? Endless smartphone upgrades provide an adequate gaming experience, but every gamer will agree, the bigger the screen, the better. Even mobile entertainment – watching movies or videos – can be a more enjoyable activity on a larger screen.
Enter portable monitors. Its screen sizes are nearly the size of laptops, so these are larger than phones or even tablets.
A 15.6-inch screen can't compare to a 27-inch monitor, but it does beat a 6.44-inch screen, the biggest among smartphones even those with specifications designed for gaming. And while an 8-inch or 10.1-inch tablet is bigger than a phone screen, it’s still not big enough and can spoil the experience.
The portable monitor that tilts from 10 to 90 degrees for viewing pleasure at any angle, and even pivots to portrait display.
A more comfortable, immersive viewing experience awaits
Are you ready for gaming on the go? Here are a few things to consider when choosing a portable monitor.
Gaming is dynamic. On-screen images change at a rapid rate. The first consideration is life-like and crisp visuals and colors that are vibrant and as real as possible, without pixelation.
Response time is equally important. It's hard to beat the enemy when there's a lag as images continually refresh.
Brightness is a third but critical factor, especially when using the monitor outdoors, in a well-lit environment, or when the backlight is too bright.
Philips always has the gamer - leisure or hardcore - in mind. And while it has rolled out widescreen monitors for that immersive gaming experience at home, it understands some players also enjoy mobile gaming.
Need a second screen or to expand visuals from a smartphone? Consider the Philips 16B1P3300.
Headlining the B1 portable monitor series is the 16B1P3300 model. Lightweight with a stable, adjustable stand, it comes ready to be hooked to a laptop for dual-screen viewing or a smart phone for an expanded view while gaming. Connectivity is seamless via a micro HDMI port and USB-C port.
Once connected, high-definition visuals pop out onscreen. Designed with High Dynamic Range 10 (HDR10) for full HD visual quality, the contrast is incomparable, and the colors are vibrant, thanks to a rich color palette.
It has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a refresh rate of 60Hz to keep up with intense gaming.
Viewing angle is a concern for portable monitors. Used outdoors or in places with uncontrolled lighting, brightness can dampen the immersive experience while playing.
This is addressed in two ways. First, the 16B1P3300, equipped with 250 NITS, brightens the IPS panel and compensates for direct sunlight or harsh bright light that hits the screen which tend to darken the images or text.
Second, it has a multi-angle view with tilting from 10 to 90 degrees, the highest allowing a pivot for portrait display. In addition, it has a wide 178/178 viewing angle, so colors don't change, and images are not distorted regardless of the angle you're viewing the monitor from.
Our portable monitors can be used to enlarge the screen of a laptop, too.
Whether used as an extension screen with a laptop or to enlarge visuals from a smartphone, this portable monitor will be worth it.
There are two other models in the series - 16B1P3302 and 16B1P7300 - the difference from the original being the former has DisplayLink, while the latter comes with two USB-C ports.
Whichever model you choose, a Philips portable monitor will expand your viewing pleasure for gaming or entertainment on the go.
