Just talked to a buddy that works at Philips, can confirm, Monitors are outsourced .
While the specs vs price looks great , but can't speak to the quality based on its brand for this product

I just picked one up for $335 the other day. I like the monitor so far.

4 year warranty is nice but I hope I don't have to contact Philips. I have had bad experience with their customer service.

But all customer service are bad. So kinda not a bad point to mention since all manufacturers share this common point.

That's what I was expecting. Philips does make excellent light bulbs and industrial electrical components, but their consumer brand is just a name like many others. Only a select few companies make their own panels and build under their own name (Samsung, LG, few others). Most of the typical consumer brands (RCA, Sanyo, Proscan, etc) you see in places like Walmart, Canadian Tire, and furniture stores are just "licensed" to various overseas companies that slap components together, and the OEMs change with the wind. Quality can be a crapshoot, I stay away myself.

FYI: It was Philips that brought 'planned obsolescence' to the world when they got into the light bulb industry. Light bulb used to last year and years (one running every day for well over 100 years).
