Philips announced the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 OLED monitor, a 27-inch 4K OLED display that promises exceptional color accuracy.
Philips claims that the Momentum 8000 provides exceptional color accuracy and a high ratio (theoretically 1,000,000 to 1), with a minimum DCI-P3 coverage of 99.7% and a 0.1 ms G2G response time (Grey and Grey). The screen claims to be able to achieve 99.6% Adobe RGB, 119% NTSC and 150% sRGB relative cover, which gives it an extremely wide range of color accuracy for a variety of uses. The display boasts a 10-bit color depth mode, and a Delta E value of less than 1.
DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified monitor comes with four ports. It has two HDMI 2.0 (unfortunately, not HDMI 2.1), one DisplayPort1.4, one USB Type-C with power delivery of up 90W and one USB Type-B. There are also four USB Type-A (downstream with two quick charge B.C.1.2). The monitor also has a headphone jack that can be used to support MultiView with KVM and PbP switches.
Philips claims that compatible devices can be charged while the monitor is connected to it directly. It is also possible to view high-resolution video, transfer data and charge compatible devices simultaneously.
It measures 26.9 inches and has a peak brightness of 250 nits in standard dynamic range (SDR). The screen also offers 178/178 viewing angles.
Philips clearly targets this display at creative professionals. As such, the display will likely be extremely accurate but not great for gaming.
Philips claims that the maximum brightness of SDR content is 250 nits. However, it can reach a peak brightness of 540 nits for HDR content. This brightness, along with the per-pixel level dimming due to OLED panels, means that users will not experience blooming or halos. These effects can also occur on Mini LED monitors despite having many local dimming zones.
The Philips 27E1N8900 will soon be available in Asia and the United States for $1,060. Philips didn’t indicate plans to launch the display in Europe or the United Kingdom at the time of publication.
