Philips 180MT


The Philips 180MT is a wonderfully stylish monitor and TV, and would be a great addition to any home office or dorm room. While the ghosting was too intense for gaming and high speed action, this multifunctional device fits the bill for an all purpose,...

Good viewing angles ; beautiful design ; nice TV-PC fusion controls

Noticeable ghosting ; color anomalies ; no DVI support

While hardcore gamers will scoff at the ghosting, the office and casual users will not notice any problems.

Product Specifications

Building on the integrated LCD Monitor/TV concept, Philips has now launched a new, larger-screen model aimed at users who want to use today's state-of-the-art technology in both their personal and professional lives. The new 180MT now offers a big 18" display area for large-screen viewing of both computer and TV images. Like the 150MT, the new 18" 180MT can be switched instantly between full-screen TV viewing and any of the user's normal PC applications such as word processing, Internet browsing and e-mail. As well as that, it also allows simultaneous viewing of both TV and PC images, thanks to the resizable picture-in-picture feature. This makes it possible to work on the PC while watching a TV program in a separate on-screen window. When the PC is not being used, the 180MT LCD Monitor/TV acts as a full-featured, high-performance TV with a remote control for TV and video functions. It incorporates an RF and cable TV tuner for reception of both off-air and cable broadcasts. And thanks to its SCART and S-video connectors, the 180MT can be connected to a DVD player, VCR or camera for viewing movies and other recordings. As well as standard TV viewing, the monitor also offers full teletext functionality. This enables access to a wide range of additional news and information such as stock markets, which makes this product ideal for people like executives and media professionals who want to track the global business news as it happens. The 180MT LCD Monitor/TV is packed with state-of-the-art features-built on Philips' advanced monitor technology. These deliver outstanding brightness and contrast, wide viewing angles and very fast response times, all of which translate into excellent picture quality for both computer display and TV viewing functions. Like all technically advanced products from Philips, the design has received just as much attention as the technology inside. The sleek, sophisticated styling is a perfect match for modern high-tech business or Small Office/Home Office (SoHo) environments. Despite its large display area, the 180MT has a slim, space-saving design that minimizes the desktop footprint.
