We’ve been following Philips monitors for years now and have often seen some impressive displays in the general use and professional segments. This year, we’ll be seeing more gaming displays from Philips, ranging from 27-inch panels, all the way up to 55-inches, each with HDR.
The biggest monitor here is the 55 Momentum, using a 55-inch 4K panel with DisplayHDR 1000 certification. A soundbar also comes attached to the monitor stand, using Bowers & Wilkins speakers for better built-in audio. As you would expect, adaptive sync technology is supported for tear-free gaming and the whole thing is built with low input lag in mind, although it is worth noting that this monitor in particular is aimed primarily at the console gaming market.
If you want something a bit smaller, then Philips is launching the 31.5 M1, which as the name suggests, is a 31.5-inch monitor. This one retains that 4K resolution but bumps the refresh rate up to 120Hz when using a DisplayPort connection. HDR is still present too, with DisplayHDR 600 certification.
Finally, the Philips 27 Momentum is a smaller version of the 55 Momentum. This is a 27-inch 4K monitor running at 60Hz with adaptive sync and is listed as ‘HDR Ready’. Once again, this is aimed mainly at console gamers and handles connection via HDMI 2.0 only.
Currently, all three monitors are expected to arrive in Q1 2020, so it’ll be a while before you can pick one up. In terms of pricing, we have been told to expect €1,300 for the 55 Momentum, €499 for the 31.5 M1 and €399 for the Momentum 27.
KitGuru Says: I’ll be keeping my eye out for that 31-inch 4K/120Hz monitor myself. What do you guys think of the latest monitors from Philips?
