Phillips is adding two new monitors to its Momentum gaming series. The first is the Momentum 275M8RZ QHD monitor for those looking to play at 1440p, while the second display is the Momentum 345M2CRZ, offering an ultra-wide resolution and aspect ratio.
The Philips 275M8RZ features a 27-inch IPS panel with a 165Hz refresh rate, QHD resolution, and 4ms G2G response time. The 10-bit (8-bit + FRC) panel boasts a 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and 130% of the sRGB colour space. Certified with VESA DisplayHDR 400, this monitor comes with 350nits of brightness and a contrast ratio of 1000:1.
This 27-inch monitor supports Nvidia G-sync/Adaptive sync to prevent tearing and features flicker-free technology and LowBlue mode to reduce eye fatigue. For connectivity, the monitor has 2x HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.2. There’s also a 3.5mm jack to connect headphones or speakers. The included stand is rather limited, only allowing users to tilt, but there’s support for VESA 100x100mm monitor arms.
As for the Philips 345M2CRZ, the 34-inch curved (1000R) VA panel has a UWQHD resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, and 4ms G2G response time. Unlike the 275M8RZ , this panel is only 8-bit, but it still covers almost 89% of the DCI-P3 gamut and 119% of the sRGB spectrum. Moreover, it features HDR, a contrast ratio of 4000:1, and 300nits of brightness.
Similar to the 275M8RZ, it features Adaptive sync, flicker-free technology and a low blue light mode. Additionally, it also supports PIP/PBP mode, allowing users to have multiple video outputs from different sources. The back of the monitor has 2x HDMI ports, 2x DisplayPorts, and an audio-out 3.5mm jack. The included stand is slightly better than the one from the 275M8RZ, featuring tilt and height adjustment capabilities. Lastly, it also features VESA 100x100mm if the user wishes to change the stand.
