Philips’ New, Insanely Bright 4K HDR Monitor Is Now On Sale
Stephan Jukic – July 18, 2018
If you want a 4K UHD monitor with all the chops of some of today’s best premium 4K HDR TVs, the Philips-branded The Momentum 43″ 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor is finally available and damn does it perform. When we say it offers specs similar to those of a premium 4K TV we mean it. This ultra HD PC display delivers a whopping 1000+ nits of peak display brightness, deep, rich black levels with local dimming and some crushing color gamut performance for vibrant, realistic colors across the board. In fact, the Momentum is so far one of the world’s only DisplayHDR 1000-rated PC monitors being sold now.
As its name implies, the Momentum 43″ 436M6VBPAB 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor also offers quantum dot technology similar to that found in Samsung’s premium 4K HDR TVs. Philips has even thrown in Ambiglow technology for a rather unique showing of multicolored background lighting for when you’re doing your PC gaming and computing in a dimly-lit room. We’re ambivalent about Ambiglow but some users might think it’s cool. Philips has also promised incredibly low input lag in the Momentum 43″ Monitor with PC gamers firmly in mind with this claim. The gigantic 43 inch display surface of this particular PC monitor is also a major bonus for the gamer crowd while also being excellent for visual design professionals who want deadly accurate color performance and plenty of screen real estate.
Best of all, the Momentum 436M6VBPAB 43”Class 4K LED model is now available through major retailers. Amazon, Best Buy and others are now selling it for a rather steep $999.99, but bear in mind that for this money you’re getting your hands on some of the most advanced PC display technology in existence today (though you could always also pay nearly the same and just get a premium full-blown 4K HDR TV such as Sony’s X900F or X900E models with an even bigger 50 inch screen).
Connectivity in the Momentum 43″ 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor is also nothing short of excellent with ports for: HDMI 2.0, Display Port 1.2, Mini Display Port 1.2, USB-C, (2) USB3.0, PC Audio In, and Headphone Out all present.
Here’s are some key specs along with Amazon’s sales offer for this powerhouse display. It might be a budget breaker for many users but professionals and serious gamers who want unbeatable performance have plenty to gain from this beast’s specs.
