Philips Gioco review: Ambiglow on your desk and much more

Philips 278G4DHSD makes great use of the LG Display IPS panel


Test results colour temperature and colour fidelity

Colour fidelity is supposed to be the strong point of the Philips Gioco 278G4DHSD. We tested it with out of the box settings.

Native color temperature

The 7160 K color temperature is on the high side, which makes the colors a bit colder than ideal. It's better than a lot of screens however.

Deviation from ideal color temperature

The Gioco 278G4DHSD scores average here.

Deviation from ideal greyscale gamma (X-Rite i1 Display Pro)

According to the X-Rite i1 Display Pro colorimeter, the Philips Gioco 278G4DHSD has a perfect gamma of 2.2. We haven't tested many other monitors yet with this device.

Greyscale tracking (X-Rite i1 Display Pro)

The greyscale deviation is extremely minute.

Average Delta E colors (X-Rite i1 Display Pro)

The Philips Gioco scores really well here, the average deviation is very small.
