Verdict: „With the Philips Momentum 278M1R, you’ll be well equipped to beat your enemies quickly and efficiently in heated combat, even in 4K UHD and with HDR. This display leaves hardly any wish unfulfilled and due to its compact size, it is also much easier to transport than a huge TV. Although Philips mainly addresses console esports players with this model, it can of course also be used at the PC. We would not recommend it for gaming on the PC though, since it runs at a maximum of 60 FPS and many people are used to higher speeds on the PC. For graphics work for example it is quite suitable. With an MSRP of 479,00 EUR and currently on Amazon for 429,00 EUR it is not really that affordable but it offers some special technology and high-quality. We can therefore make a purchase recommendation.“
