Philips Momentum 326M6V – 32-inch monitor aimed primarily at console gamers

Last Updated on 3 years by D.Fili

The Philips Momentum 326M6VJRMB is a gaming monitor from display specialist for Philips MMD monitors, and is primarily aimed at console players who want a 4K monitor to get the most out of their PS4 Pro and/or Xbox an X.

The panel is a 32 inch vertically aligned LCD (VA) with a resolution of 3840 × 2160, a response time of 4 MS and a maximum brightness of 600 nits.

These latest Philips displays utilise high-performance panels to deliver UltraClear, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution images. Whether you are a professional requiring extremely detailed images for CAD solutions, using 3D graphics applications or are a financial wizard working on huge spreadsheets, Philips displays will make your images and graphics come alive.

Stunning coverage of the chromatic space – 135% sRGB and 98.6% DCI-P3, apparently – means that the Philips Momentum 326M6VJRMB complies with the VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification, so Netflix and Amazon’s HDR content emission should look Fantastic in that too.

Then there is Ambiglow, a feature that sees a strip of ten LEDS that change through different colors, a low blue light mode for night-play sessions and support for adaptive synchronization, to help reduce laceration Screen.

The Ambiglow feature is very nice-as you can see from the photos I took, the LEDS set under the chin momentum do a good job of projecting a pleasant ambient sheen. However, it might be more effective if the surrounding furniture are white. The light strip got stuck in a basic demo mode, which just saw the colors changing every few seconds.

DTS speakers with improved sound are also included here, but in the demo area, where noise levels were not exactly optimal, I can’t say for sure if the noise from the roaring crowd sounded particularly good.

In Terms of ports, you get HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, USB 3.0 Gen 2 with quick recharge and audio connections and typical headphone output.

Aside from console games, the Momentum 326M6JVRMB monitor of Philips on paper seems to be suitable for photographic work and video editing.

To summarize, MMD says that the momentum can cover the entire REC range. 709, 98.61% of DCI-P3, 114% NTSC and 135% sRGB color space. On paper, this means it could be great for video editing and photo work, although no one could tell me about the coverage of Adobe RGB.

It also promises support for Adaptive Sync technology, although at the time of writing, no one could tell me if this meant G-SYNC from NVIDIA or AMD FreeSync (or both) will play very well with the momentum out of the box.    photo:Philips
