Rock Paper Shotgun, a popular website (over 6 million visits per month) from the UK with game and hardware reviews published an article titled “Best 4K gaming monitors” on their website and included the Philips 436M6VBPAB among 5 monitors.
Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB – „The best TV-sized 4K gaming monitor”
+ Adaptive sync works with AMD and Nvidia graphics cards
+ Hassle-free HDR
+ The best big screen gaming experience
Verdict : “ […] Enter the Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB, a large 43in gaming screen that is one of the best big 4K gaming monitors we’ve ever tested. Its refresh rate may be capped at 60Hz, but the Momentum 436M6VBPAB still has a wonderfully accurate MVA panel, as well as top notch HDR support. Even better, it’s variable refresh rate tech for smooth tear-free gaming isn’t limited to just Nvidia graphics cards, either, as its adaptive sync support works with both AMD and Nvidia GPUs alike. […] What’s more, Philips’ Ambiglow tech gives you a neat RGB lighting effect around the edge of the display, matching the dominant colours onscreen to help ‘extend’ your experience beyond the borders of the screen. If you enjoy that sort of thing, it’s a nice extra that really lets you go to town with your lighting setup, but you can always turn it off if you prefer.”

T3, a globally active website with about 10 million monthly visitors, mainly from the US and the UK, featuring content ranging from technology and gaming to fitness and lifestyle, recently published a best-of articles, including three Philips monitors.
The article “Best 4K monitors 2021”, lists the 328P6VUBREB in the first place! The article also lists the 329P1H in seventh place and 436M6VBPAB in the thirteenth place.
+ Quality, captivating display
+ Great mix of 4K VA and HDR
+ Surprisingly affordable
Verdict: “Finding a display that brings together 4K support and HDR (High Dynamic Range) at an affordable price point can be something of a holy grail, but every now and then a manufacturer finds that elusive sweet spot. Take the, ahem, brilliant Philips Brilliance 328P, a plucky display that sports an impressive HDR 600 rating and a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution as a great example. This monitor’s very vibrant display will do your graphic design, video editing and gaming pastime more than enough justice. It’s also shockingly affordable, especially when you consider this is a 31.5-inch display with 4K and HDR support. Indeed, when you compare it to certain, similarly specced screens, it delivers the same performance for under half the price.
And, we feel it is because of this mixture of great hardware and modest price point, that makes the Philips Brilliance 328P the first monitor many users should consider when looking to upgrade.”
+Integrated HD webcam
+USB-C with 90W power
+Highly adjustable stand
Verdict: “As we note in our full Philips Brilliance 329P1H review, this is a great 4K monitor for professionals, delivering a 32-inch Ultra HD IPS panel with integrated webcam, Windows Hello integration, and USB-C connectivity. The screen itself is very accurate and it comes with highly adjustable stand, too, meaning it can be easily adjusted to all desks and preferences. That integrated webcam is no token afterthought, either, delivering Full HD 1080p video recording. In terms of ports it delivers a brace of HDMI 2.0 and a Thunderbolt 1.4. Adjustability sits at 180mm of height adjustment, with the display gliding smoothly up and down, plus 90 degrees of pivot, 180 degrees of swivel and tilting from -5 to +25 degrees. The Windows Hello integration is really nice as it allows for the automatic logging into Windows 10 using facial recognition, while the really weighty foot of the stand means it is really hard to tip or knock over the panel, too. There’s no HDR on this panel, and you don’t get any gamer-focused high refresh rates either, but if you want a 4K monitor for work, general use and streaming video content, the Philips Brilliance 329P1H is a great choice.”
+ Huge 43-inch 4K panel
+ DisplayHDR 1000 tech
+ Ambiglow lighting
+ Low input lag of 4 ms
Verdict: “There’s so much to love about the Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB that it is difficult to know where to start. It’s a simply massive panel, measuring in at a TV-sized 43 inches, which means you’re never strapped for space. Thanks to its 4K, DisplayHDR 1000 panel technology, too, the picture quality it delivers is also impressive, with up to 1000 nits of peak brightness accessible. Elsewhere, the 3,840 x 2,160 resolution screen also comes with a gamer-focused 4 ms response time and Adaptive-Sync technology, which means input lag is moot and high-speed gaming sessions a super smooth, click-and-hope free experience. Naturally, thanks to the screen’s Quantum Dot colour tech, too, images and videos are presented naturally and with rich, vivid colours. Lastly, a smorgasbord of connection options, including DisplayPort and miniDisplayPort, HDMI and USB-C mean that hooking the monitor up is never an issue either, and its cost, coming in just over the £500 mark makes it very approachable to most shoppers as well. The picture quality isn’t absolutely the best-in-class in this guide, however, just like everything else about it, it is good and complements a strong all-round 4K monitor package that excels in delivering huge screen space.”

TopTenReviews.com, a review website from the UK’s Future Publishing recently published a review of the Philips 242B9T. The monitor received 4.5/5 stars.
The tester emphasised the usage opportunities at home besides its B2B potential: “Philips actually aims these devices at small business owners, as they make excellent till/cashier screens, but we think they have plenty of use at home too.” He also underlined that the touchscreen technology is an “overlooked piece of technology” and praised Philips at improving this “underrated technology”.

There aren’t many companies making new models of touch screen monitors, so getting a shiny new model complete with the latest technology and ergonomic features is a real boon to this often overlooked piece of technology. The screen looks great, it feels good to use and has a great degree of flexibility when it comes to angle and screen height, so it’s comfortable too. It also has some nifty features including a low blue light mode and anti-glare screen that make it ideal for work use, where you’ll be looking at the screen for a long time. “
