Philips Momentum 32M1N5800A Review (4K/144Hz)

Rating: 8.5.

Today we are checking out the Philips Momentum 32M1N5800A. The latest in an ever-growing segment of displays offering a 4K/144Hz experience over a 32in panel, the inclusion of two HDMI 2.1 ports will no doubt appeal to both PC and console gamers. Philips will also be hoping to tempt buyers with the competitive price-point, hitting the shelves at £759.99. It's still not cheap, but with similarly-specced rivals often over £100 more expensive, could the 32M1N5800A be worth a look?

While Philips established itself in the monitor market with its pro-grade displays, the Momentum series of gaming monitors has been around for a few years now. The 32M1N5800A in question boasts a number of impressive specs, including a peak brightness of 500 nits, wide viewing angles and a claimed 1ms response time.
