Verdict: “So far, I haven’t been disappointed by any of the HDMI 2.1-compliant monitors that have landed on my desk. The Philips Momentum 279M1RV is therefore in vaunted company, but it does more than enough to secure its place at the very top of the pile. It’s a strong performer with a fantastic feature set.

It isn’t the perfect gaming monitor, but Philips has successfully chosen the right places to nip and tuck in order to keep the price within the bounds of reason. If you have the budget for it and you’re in the market for a do-it-all gaming monitor, the Philips Momentum 279M1RV is an excellent choice.”
