The Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB may not have as good ergonomics as the Newsoul Portable Monitor, but testers liked its big 43-inch screen and high brightness level. On the flip side, they complained that its refresh rate was relatively low, its viewing angles were not as good, and its local dimming feature was just bad.

our Verdict

Reviewers hailed the Philips 436M6VBPAB for the high amount of screen real estate that its 43-inch screen offers and its astonishing brightness level of 720 nits. Product testers from Display Ninja were delighted with its high native contrast ratio of 6888:1, as they found out that during their tests, the display’s black levels were a lot higher compared to the Samsung Odyssey G7, which has a contrast ratio of 1336:1. Also praised by reviewers from PC Monitors was its low input lag of 9.7ms. Because of this, command prompts were executed quickly, and there wasn’t any delay between devices. The display’s ultra-high resolution was also a point of discussion, as critics were very impressed with its detailed images and the results they got from testing it for its text clarity.

However, product testers also established that the display’s 60Hz refresh rate was not ideal for gaming and that its local dimming feature was also terrible. They were also not impressed with its viewing angles, as they thought they were pretty narrow.

The Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB is a premium 43-inch display released in mid-2018. It is more of a TV that can be used as a monitor, and it has an impressive DisplayHDR 1000 rating that is also difficult to find among the best computer monitors. The display has an impressive 4K screen resolution that delivers an immersive viewing experience just like the HP U28K, and since it can get as bright as 720 nits, it is ideal for use in a brightly lit setting. It handles reflections very well thanks to its glossy screen, and with a pixel density of 104 PPI, text clarity is also quite good. With an 88.1% coverage of the DCI P3 color space, the Philips display is capable of a wide color gamut, delivering a more saturated mix of colors than the LG 32UL950-W.
