Looks good for the money
Added to my wishlist for consideration. I assume all QHD monitors let you set the resolution to 1080p if needed?
No VESA holes. Doesn't appear to support height adjustability on supplied stand.

Old model, they have a newer line that's coming out to replace

How much will that be?
Awesome price for 27", 1440p, AMD freesync

But it's only 60hz

True, not much use for FreeSync at 60, but someone will find it useful if their card isn't very powerful

And better than no FreeSync at all

You can but it’ll look absolute awful.

What are you gonna use it for? A console? If so stick to 1080p.

It's an IPS panel, you need to look at something with a TN panel if you want better but it won't look as good
Everything absolutely great on this monitor for the price... until 60Hz refresh rate. Nothing wrong with the refresh rate if your main focus is console gaming where the games mostly have an upper limit of 60fps, and with everything else available that you would need to future-proof the monitor as next gen is practically around the corner.

For my PC. Just thinking that some games probably won't run well at QHD and would need to drop back to 1080p.

Run it at native res and use resolution scaling
Unusual to have VGA on a qhd monitor. Would have preferred a second HDMI or a DVI-D
No vesa interface on a screen this size is a crime against ergonomics.
Why would anyone buy this over the Viewsonic 32" 4k I posted the other day. Sometimes the heat rating on hotukdeals really doesn't properly represent the value of items well at all. This monitor at this price is average, not terrible but not particularly good. The Viewsonic at its' current price is a million times better value. I see this problem quite a lot. Not sure if its' because of misuse of the site or just strange behaviour. Anyway just mentioned for anyone who actually cares about getting a good deal.
Also Tacavas listed items often fall into this category. A lot of so so monitors that get hot so a good deal that the op posts can get lost in all the dross. Makes the site less effective when you can't highlight the good from the bad.

@The.Lone.Ranger specifications were released this month, recommened RRP was around £189 according to release notes. Phillip's also some cracking 24inch 1080p 2019 models. Main thing to look at Is the colour spectrum output and bit range is a correct 8bit and above.

Thanks I'm going to read up a bit before taking the plunge. I have a nice 1200p Dell at the moment but I'd kind of like to dip into QHD territory and get a little larger screen from my current 24".

Not really that simple. 32" would be too large for me as it needs to go onto a desk where there is limited space. 4k is also no good for me so the monitor mentioned by Sam is simply of no interest to me so I wouldn't have voted (and didn't vote on this monitor either).

This Philips is not 3 years old, just 2 accordingly to the reviews I found. The reviews of this monitor were quite good so I think for the money and if this is a size you want, it is probably a good deal.

I don't disagree people will have different requirements, I was trying to made a more general point about value for money but perhaps phrased it badly. I don't however agree this is a particularly good deal. The price is favourable compared to other sellers but that doesn't necessarily make it a great price.

The monitor I posted was 238 degrees in July at £299.99 and is 186 degrees now in August (less than 2 months later) when on at £214.56 so even when you consider the fact that some items will get more votes and therefore have more chance to get hotter (not a good thing) you also have these anomalies which make no sense at all.

People shouldn't get so fussed over heat. Purpose of the site is to present people with good deals. Sometimes you post things that are brilliant value but only appeal to a few, other times you can post something that isn't amazing, but will help a lot. I think that a 27" QHD monitor generally has more appeal than a 4K 32".
