What you need to know
- Philips launched its new Brilliance 27 4K monitor.

If you're looking for a solid way to dock your laptop without a ton of cables all over your desk, Philips' latest monitor may be worth a look. The new Philips Brilliance 27 4K comes with a built-in USB-C dock, allowing you to connect to both the monitor and your keyboard, mouse, ethernet, and more with a single cable.
As the name suggests, the monitor packs a 27-inch 4K display and supports a 4K image up to 60Hz. The IPS display is flanked by relatively thin bezels, and it's rated 122 percent of the sRGB gamut. Philips also claims a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and a 5ms response time.
Where the monitor comes in handy is if you have a laptop with USB-C ports and frequently move between working at your desk and on the go. With the built-in dock, you can charge your PC and connect to your USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, and Ethernet ports with one USB-C cable.
Philips has also built in a low blue light mode and flicker-free features to reduce eye strain, as well as a sensor that can detect when no one is in front of the monitor and dim the display.
Nice and tidy
Keep your desk setup nice and tidy with the Philips Brilliance 27 4K display's built-in USB dock.
