The new model comes with a 16” panel (15.6″ / 39.6 cm diagonal), 1366×768 pixel resolution, and offer a brilliant interactive display. The Philips 162B9T is sturdier compared to other monitors thanks to the water and dust resistant touch screen. Along with that, the monitor is for flexible enough to be used anywhere and comes with an articulating stand to fit angle that suits you.

You can also collaborate with colleagues interactively at a work or school environment to increase your productivity and efficiency.

Water and dust resistant

For less than perfect environments, you need a monitor meets the international IP rating for water and dust resistance that is designed to hold up to the splashes of water and dust.. Ingress Protection (IP) ratings defined in international standard IEC/EN 60529, and are used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies and moisture which the Philips 162B9T fully supports.


SmartContrast is a Philips technology that analyses the contents you are displaying, automatically adjusting colours and controlling backlight intensity to dynamically enhance contrast for the best digital images and videos or games where dark hues are displayed. When Economy mode is selected, the contrast is adjusted and backlighting is fine-tuned to make it easier to use everyday office applications and decrease power consumption.

LowBlue Mode

Studies have shown that just like ultra-violet rays, shortwave length blue light rays from LED displays can also affect vision over time and can potentially cause eye damage. Developed with digital wellbeing in mind, the Philips LowBlue Mode setting uses a smart software technology to reduce harmful shortwave blue light.


Philips SmartStand allows for flexible adjustment of the display. Its Z-type structure with smooth tilt, height adjustment and folding capabilities enable you to use it in various ergonomic positions. You can set the stand in upright position for better touch control, or recline it backwards to make it easy for you to draw or annotate. It even allows you to put the screen almost flat on the table for some applications if needed.

Aside from support the traditional VGA input and the newer Display port input, the Philips 162B9T brings the power of HDMI that can deliver high-definition video and audio all in a single cable. This port also makes the monitor compatible with not just PCs, but with a variety of other AV sources as well. Users can also take advantage of the high-speed file transfer thanks to the USB 3.1 port.
