Philips Momentum 279M1RV 4K gaming monitor review

As a sub £800 4K gaming monitor, you’d expect the Philips Momentum 279M1RV to cut a couple of corners with its design. And while there are some minor features that Phillips has dulled down to keep the cost from skyrocketing, this gaming monitor has a few tricks tucked behind its nifty Nano IPS panel.

The big win for me comes in the form of the Philips Momentum 279M1RV’s 144Hz refresh rate and blinding 1ms gray-to-grey response time. It’s made competitive gaming a cinch for me on my high-end gaming PC, and at the same time, console gamers certainly haven’t been forgotten about. In fact, the Momentum’s marketed as optimized for next-gen console gaming. Around the back, it has not one but three HDMI 2.1 ports, which means console gamers can keep a vast setup connected and go up to 120Hz with each platform connected.
