Philips Momentum 559M1RYV among “Best PS5 monitors” @ GamesRadar+ (UK)

GamesRadar+, a gaming-focused website from the UK’s renowned Future Publishing house with about 50 million monthly visits, recently published an article titled “Best PS5 monitors” and included the Philips Momentum 559M1RYV among their selection!

Philips Momentum 559M1RYV – Really big, mostly beautiful – and built for consoles

+ Huge 55-inch panel

+ Full 4K and 120Hz experience

+ Crazy bright at 1,200 nits

– Pixel response is ‘only’ 4ms

– HDR performance is middling

– Expensive compared to TVs

Verdict: “With the first of what’s set to be a whole family of console-optimised monitors, Philips has gone big with the Momentum 559M1RYV, all 55 inches of it. Philips says that low latency is one of the Momentum’s core features and what marks it out from 4K TVs. So, yes, this is the full 4K Monty with HDMI 2.1 and support for up to 144Hz refresh, making it an ideal PS5 monitor to consider if you like all things large display-wise. […] As a big-screen PS5 monitor option, then, this Philips panel looks promising. But not quite perfect. The response is rated at 4ms, whereas the best LCD monitors are rated at 1ms. Moreover, this monitor has only just been announced and it’s not clear if this monitor supports local dimming. Without it, it won’t be a true HDR display, whatever the certification. Still, the sheer scale of this thing will be spectacular for anything graphically intensive, from cinematic driving games to the eye candy-infested escapades of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.”
