Philips have stuck a B&W soundbar onto their new 55in gaming monitor

Philips have unveiled two new gaming monitors today, the first (and literally) biggest of which is their jumbo and catchily-named Momentum 558M1RY, a huge 55in screen with a 4K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate and a whopping great soundbar built into it courtesy of the high-end audio folks at Bowers & Wilkins. If you've ever wanted to play PC games in your living room, this…

Feature: This huge 40in monitor has a dark secret

Philips BDM4037UW review: Amazing colours, poor brightness

I don't know about you, but I love having multiple monitors on my desk. Every time I go away and have to work on my tiny 15in laptop screen, I groan inwardly. I mean, how am I meant to check emails, look at product specs, have the RPS team Slack open and do all my writing when I've only got a single 1920x1080 screen at…

Feature: The best 4K HDR gaming monitor that doesn't cost the earth

Philips 436M6VBPAB review: Our new 4K HDR champion

Every time an HDR monitor arrives on my desk, I say a small prayer to the gaming monitor gods: "Please, PLEASE let this one be good." I don't care if it's hideously expensive like the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ or Acer Predator X27, I just want one that does HDR well and does it without a boat load of fuss and settings twiddling.Readers, my prayers…

Philips 276E9QJAB review: HDR-like colours with none of the fuss

A recurring problem I've had with HDR gaming monitors lately is that they don't seem to be able to do HDR levels of brightness at the same time as HDR levels of colour. Whether it's the ludicrously expensive Nvidia G-Sync HDR-enabled Acer Predator X27 or the cheap as chips BenQ EW277HDR, there's always been some sort of compromise involved. Sometimes it's due to a limitation…

Prepare to be blinded by Philips’ 1000nit 4K FreeSync 2 monitor

Who knew late April was the time for oodles of monitor announcements, eh? Well, if yesterday's news of the FreeSync 2-equipped AOC AGON AG322QC4 didn't make your eyes pop out of their sockets, then the jumbo Philips 436M6VBPAB almost certainly will thanks to its blinding max brightness of 1000cd/m2.This giant 43in VA panel is the first of a new line of Momentum monitors from Philips, and is the first in…

Feature: The quest to find the best monitor for Final Fantasy XII begins

Philips 349X7FJEW review: A great 21:9 ultra-wide monitor for Final Fantasy XII

If there are two things I love in life, it's Final Fantasy and 21:9 monitors. It's a select group of interests, I'll admit, but when I heard that Final Fantasy XII was finally coming to PC with both 21:9 and multi-monitor support, I knew what I had to do. Yep, today marks the start of my 21:9 ultra-wide monitor group test to find the best gaming…

Philips 273V5LHAB review: A 27in monitor that doesn’t break the budget

Flashy 'gaming' monitors may be all the rage among the youth these days, but sometimes you just want a nice 27in monitor without all the bells, whistles and LED light shows that often accompany them. Fortunately, the catchily-named Philips 273V5LHAB is one such monitor, and it's about as plain and straightforward as they come.I mean that in the best possible way, of course, and while…

To 4K Or Not 4K? The Pros & Cons Of Ultra-HD Gaming

With Laird Towers currently undergoing major renovations, RPS's hardware coverage has been forced to retreat to the vaults. But that hasn't stopped me. No, I've battled through the dust, the rubble, the builders lumbering about the place at ungodly hours of the morning (I regard consciousness before 9:30am as rather uncivilised) and the relentless tea-making to bring you some reflections on 4K gaming. We've covered…
