The Porsche Design Series (PDS) is available in 24-inch (PDS241) and 27-inch (PDS271) sizes, both of which include ultra slim display bezels on the left, right, and top. They also feature a rather unique-looking asymmetrical stand that houses a single cable used for HDMI and power, which terminates with a power brick-like module housing both connections.
And that’s what leads us to the main downsides of having a display that was designed to be beautiful first and foremost. That single HDMI connection is all that you’ll find on the PDS series. You won’t find DVI or DisplayPort connections or built in speakers or even a USB hub. Heck, there isn’t even a VESA mount for those of you who would like to mount the display on a wall (thanks to that fact that the cords are incorporated into the stand).
What you will find are AH-IPS panels with a screen resolution of 1920x1080, 100 percent sRGB and 90 percent NTSC color gamut coverage. You’ll also find AOC’s low blue light technology to help reduce eye strain. Refresh rates are pegged at 60Hz, response time comes in at 4ms, contrast ratio is listed at 1,000:1 and the display have a brightness rating of 250 cd/m2.
According to AOC, the PDS241 and PDS271 will be available in June priced at £189 and £259 respectively ($240 and $331 respectively).
