The new M5000 series brings intensity and immersion to the Philips Monitors gaming portfolio

Amsterdam, March 7, 2022 – Gamers are evolving, and so is their approach to gaming. Intense PC gaming remains a favourite after-work activity, but many gamers’ horizons are expanding to next-gen console gaming as well. To meet these demands, the new Philips Monitors M5000 series brings intensity and details to the competition, whatever the game is: the Philips 27M1N5200PA offers fast-paced gameplay for eSports on a 27” (68.5cm) Full HD Fast IPS panel, while the Philips 32M1N5800A provides optimal picture quality thanks to its 31.5” (80cm) 4K UHD IPS display.

Ultra-fast refresh rate for an action protagonist

The Philips 27M1N5200PA offers intense gameplay through its high-quality features, making it perfect for action-oriented competitive games such as multiplayers. These gamers need displays with lag-free and ultra-smooth yet crisp and detailed images. No frame is lost in the heat of the match with the ultra-fast 240Hz refresh rate, while the 0.5 ms MPRT effectively eliminates smearing and blur, delivering sharp, precise visuals. To fully achieve tear-free, low latency gameplay, this monitor also features FreeSync premium and low input lag to further enhance the gaming experience.

The 16:9 Full HD Fast IPS panel that the Philips 27M1N5200PA is equipped with brings crisp and detailed images with high colour accuracy to the visual experiences. “The performance is the main driver when we are developing any of our gaming monitors. It is the key to making true differences in your gaming experience and maximizing your abilities. This monitor is ideal for fast-paced games, thanks to its Fast-IPS panel that features an ultra-high refresh rate of 240Hz, 1ms GtG pixel response time, great viewing angles and 400 nits of brightness”, commented Cesar Acosta, Gaming Product Manager at MMD Monitors & Display.

4K, 144Hz and HDMI2.1 for all future challenges

The Philips 32M1N5800A is a future-proof hybrid gaming monitor that responds to the most recent innovations in the sector. This model meets the need for fast-paced PC gaming and next-gen consoles, granted by the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 connectivity. Gamers can choose to either play intense PC games, enjoying all the benefits of its rapid 144Hz refresh rate, or get the most out of the latest consoles with a refresh rate of 120Hz at 4K UHD resolution. Gameplay is always smooth thanks to 1ms (GtG) fast response and Adaptive Sync, and almost entirely lag-free due to Low input lag.

The Philips 32M1N5800A delivers precise and rich visuals with UltraClear 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution and Ultra Wide-Color technology for vivid pictures and media to come alive. This model is also DisplayHDR 400 VESA Certified.

Elaborate yet ergonomic setups

Philips 32M1N5800A also features MultiView, for experiencing active dual connect and view, ideal for even the most complex multitasking and multiple device setups. Both models feature a 3-sided frameless design and SmartErgoBase, an ergonomic metal stand that enables smart cable management, which is essential for a clean and visually pleasing gaming setup.

But there’s more to this base, because gamers’ comfort has not been forgotten. This monitor base enables considerable people-friendly ergonomic adjustments (including height, swivel, tilt, and rotation angle adjustments) for easing the physical strains of long gameplays. Long hours spent gaming can have a significant impact on the eyes as well, which is why these models feature LowBlue mode and Flicker-free for an easy-on-the-eyes viewing experience.

 “The Classical Gamer profile has changed. We learned from our customers that besides the highest gaming performance, home office functionality is increasingly relevant for their usage. That’s why these two new displays enable the latest technology and extra convenience, featuring a built-in USB Hub, speakers, and more, for both productivity and gaming”, concluded Cesar Acosta.

With today’s hygiene concerns in mind, the 32M1N5800A also features an SIAA-certified surface with anti-bacterial treatment, which reduces the adhesion and growth of bacteria on the monitor’s casing, providing extra peace of mind wherever hardware is shared.
