Philips 242B1G: Designed for the environmentally conscious

Philips 242B1G

Philips presents one of the greenest monitors in the B Line. The Philips 242B1G is designed primarily for the environmentally conscious professional.

The new Philips 242B1G monitor delivers significant energy savings with an energy efficient design. In particular, it features a new LED backlight technology that maintains brightness and color saturation while consuming significantly less energy. The monitor is also equipped with a number of other energy-saving technologies such as PowerSensor and LightSensor and a zero power switch.


The PowerSensor uses harmless infrared signals to detect when the user is in front of the device and automatically dims the brightness. This will help save up to 80% in energy costs. At the same time, LightSensor technology evaluates the lighting in the room and adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on it. Another important feature that helps reduce your carbon footprint is the Zero Power switch . One click is enough to completely disconnect the monitor from AC power, resulting in zero power consumption.


Monitor Philips 242B1G to 85% is made from recycled plastic and has a certificate TCO Certified Edge . The device does not contain harmful substances such as mercury, halogens (to minimize environmental impact), PVC and brominated flame retardants. In addition, all packaging for this model is 100% recycled and meets major international standards such as EnergyStar 8.0 , EPEAT and RoHS .

The monitor is equipped with an IPS matrix , which provides very wide viewing angles of 178 ° / 178 ° , which is especially useful when working in a team.

For the convenience of users, especially those who spend many hours in front of the screen, the new model is equipped with three functions that reduce eye strain. For example, LowBlue mode reduces harmful shortwave blue light, while FlickerFree technology adjusts brightness and reduces flicker for a more comfortable viewing experience. EasyRead provides a paper-like reading experience.

Sales of the Philips 242B1G monitor will start in February.
