They both use a so-called PLS panel that has the same picture characteristics as IPS panels. PLS panels are characterized by wide viewing angles and accurate color reproduction. The monitors also offer a 2560x1440 pixel resolution and edge-lit LED.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/philipsc4-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/philipsc4-1.jpg" alt="Philips C4" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Philips C4 for consumers</i></p><br />The monitors have more simularities than differences. Both can be connected to a PC with DVI, HDMI (2 inputs) or DisplayPort, and both come equipped with a built-in camera, a microphone and MultiView. MultiView allows you to view two screens side-by-side.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/philipsp4-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/philipsp4-1.jpg" alt="Philips P4" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Philips P4 for professionals</i></p><br />The main differences are that P4 has been optimized for professional work that requires more accurate colors. Philips says that it is optimal for CAD, CAM, photo editing and other graphics tasks. The professional model also has more ergonomic adjustment options. It can be lowered all the way down to the table.<br /><br />Philips 272P4QPJKEB (for professionals) is in stores now and 272C4QPJKAB (for consumers) will arrive later in April or May.
