In competitive gaming, high-quality visuals and refresh rates in a snap ensure the ultimate gaming experience. Upgraded console games need monitors to support the latest gaming features. Nothing diminishes the play like image glitches and tears because that spells defeat.

The enemy will spot you first or attack your stronghold in strategy games, leaving you eating dust with a monitor that isn’t compatible with the latest installment in console games like the Xbox Series X.

But... with a monitor specifically designed for the Xbox Series X, it is game on and more.

To ensure the quality of visuals and the highest refresh rates, state-of-the-art features like 4K resolution and 120Hz FPS will boost gaming. However, bandwidth limitations will render all these useless without proper connectivity.

Philips Momentum models These Momentum monitors are equipped with HDM! 2.1 ports designed to support the latest Xbox Series X consoles.

Console gaming at 4K/120Hz

Next-gen gaming demands the latest in connectivity. HDMI 2.0 port may support 4K resolutions, but not the highest refresh rate of 120Hz. It’s limited to 60Hz, which will likely result in most gamers getting annihilated by the enemy.

Philips Momentum addressed that problem by installing the more advanced HDMI 2.1 port in its gaming monitor series. Plug in the Xbox console, and each model in the “Designed for Xbox” Series - from 559M1RYV to 329M1RV, 329M1RVE, and 279M1RV - turns into every hard-core gamers dream screen.

It did one better with not one, not two but three HDMI 2.1 ports in every model. This way, there is absolutely no doubt gamers can be quick-on-the-draw and on the way to victory with better reaction and reflexes, to catch the opponent as they turn a corner.

The quicker a monitor can process more frames per second, the higher your chances to accurately shoot even when opponents are moving. The ultimate gaming experience comes when visuals are rendered smoothly with less blur.

Hassle-free set up

Setting up your monitor with the HDMI 2.1 port to enable console gaming at 4K/120Hz is no hassle. After hooking the Xbox to your monitor, switch it on. Then using the Xbox controller, press the Home button.

Under Profile & System, scroll down to Settings. When it opens to the General category, select the Display option and set the resolution to 4K UHD. Finally, set the refresh rate to 120Hz and you’re all set and ready to play.

The right size for you

Monitor size helps enhance the gaming experience. Between the 279M1RV, which is space-saving but does not diminish the player experience, and the 329M1RV or 329M1RVE for even more quality visuals viewed from a distance, the state-of-the-art features that support the Xbox Series consoles are in all models.

The Xbox Series X works optimally with monitors supporting 4K/120Hz. Crisp images, rich, life-like colors so the eyes easily adjust even with a lot of motion, and smooth rendering of visuals, so enemy movement never catches you off-guard.

Lag times is a common issue raised against bigger monitors when gaming. Even a few seconds lag can mean defeat in a first-person-shooter game. But this Momentum Series doesn’t have that problem since it’s equipped with the HDMI 2.1 port, which supports higher resolution and faster refresh rate.

Higher refresh rates also mean less eyestrain, whether it’s the 279M1RV or the 329M1RV. If you’ve got a sizeable room with good acoustics, a 55” monitor will further enhance the immersive gaming experience with bigger visuals, and heart-pounding sound.

Momentum For the excitable gamer who enjoys playing at a distance and viewing high-quality images, the 32” screen is perfect.

With other monitors, visual quality and refresh rates may suffer depending on the size of the screen. But Philips Momentum made sure to equip their monitors with similar state-of-the-art features that will not diminish the gaming experience whether it’s a 27" or 32" monitor.

The hard-core gamer deserves only the best, and Philips Momentum “Designed for Xbox” Series monitors were developed specifically to provide the ultimate gaming experience, especially for marathon playing sessions.

Every model in the Momentum series boasts the unique Ambiglow technology, a Philips innovation. The monitor's fast processor analyzes light emitted from the screen using a halo of matching light that adapts the color and brightness emitted by the screen to the image.

This makes the monitors easy on the eyes, but provides mind-blowing and almost true-to-life graphics, in addition to refresh rates that fly, for a truly immersive gaming experience.
