[Costco] Philips 278E1A 27 in. 4K IPS Monitor (3840 x 2160) - Costco - $339.99

Have been looking for something to pair with an M1 MacMini I have on order. Was hoping for a 32", but for the price seems appealing.

Just in case folks were wondering, you cannot get 4K/60Hz on this monitor via HDMI as you'd need HDMI 2.0 for that feature.

This. I got a 4k LG monitor over black friday and figured this out the hard way. Alternatively, you could use the DP port which would get 4k/60hz.

Would using an HDMI - DP cable give you the benefit of 4K/60? Might be a good option for those PS5/XSX owners hoping for a cheap 4K gaming experience.

it's indeed HDMI 2.0 port on the monitor, otherwise not making sense

Discrepancy between Costco specs and info in the Philips manual which indicates 2.0.

It's likely hdmi output port or cable is not hdmi 2.0 ready, most hdmi port on PC is not yet ready for 4k60, DP was ready for years

Sorry to revive this dead thread, but it was the first link when I google searched this monitor on RFD.

With VESA ceritified HDMI cable, this monitor DOES output 4k at 60hz.

I had some old adapter that did HDMI to USB-C and it only did 4k at 30hz. Went on amazon and bought another adapter for $13.99 and bang, 4k at 60hz.

This is an excellent monitor, it replaces Philips 276E which I am using, added bonus is VESA mount.
