Verdict: “All in all, the Philips Evnia 27M2C5500W monitor is a surprisingly good screen. Even though I could not quite get used to the 1000R curvature after 3 weeks of testing, the 27-inch monitor convinces with its performance. The 8-bit panel could convince me all along the line and Philips has done a very good job here. Setup and settings are simple and clear, and thanks to the clean design, you won’t be distracted by unnecessary bells and whistles. The MultiView function is quite nice for working, but irrelevant for gaming itself. Please check out the product page here.

The price of the screen currently fluctuates between 400 and 500 €. When I checked now, the price was mostly around 450 €. Whether you want to spend that money on the screen is up to you. I personally find the price a bit steep and would think twice about it. But if you decide to buy it, you definitely won’t be disappointed.”
