Gaming is evolving, and so is the gamers’ approach to gaming. PC gaming remains a favourite after-work activity, besides many gamers’ horizons are expanding to next-gen console gaming. To meet these demands, the new Philips Monitors M5000 series brings intensity and detail to the competition, whatever the game is: the Philips 27M1N5200PA perfectly suits fast-paced competitive gameplay for esports enthusiasts on its 68.5 cm (27”) Full HD 240 Hz Fast IPS panel, while the Philips 32M1N5800A provides optimal picture quality thanks to its 80 cm (31.5”) 4K UHD IPS display with a 144 Hz refresh rate and multitude of versatile features for the WFH user.
Ultra-fast refresh rates for heroes
The Philips 27M1N5200PA should offer intense gameplay through its highly competitive features, making it perfect for action-oriented competitive multiplayer games. These gamers need lag-free displays and ultra-smooth yet crisp and detailed images. No frame is lost in the heat of the competition with the ultra-fast 240 Hz refresh rate, while the 0.5 ms MPRT effectively eliminates ghosting and blur, delivering sharp, crisp visuals. To fully achieve gameplay free of stutter and tearing, this monitor also features FreeSync Premium and low input lag to further enhance the gaming experience.
The Full HD Fast IPS panel that the Philips 27M1N5200PA is equipped with brings crisp and detailed images with high colour accuracy to the visual experience. “Peak performance is our main objective when developing any of our gaming monitors. It is the key to making a true difference in the users’ gaming experience and maximises their abilities in the games. This monitor is ideal for fast-paced games like FPS or MOBA titles, thanks to its Fast IPS panel that features an ultra-high refresh rate of 240 Hz, 1 ms GtG pixel response time, great viewing angles and 400 nits of brightness”, comments César Reyes Acosta, Gaming Product Manager at MMD Monitors & Display.
4K, 144 Hz and HDMI 2.1 for future-proof gaming setups
The Philips 32M1N5800A is a future-proof hybrid gaming monitor that responds to the most recent innovations in the gaming sector. This model meets the need for fast-paced PC gaming as well as next-gen consoles, granted by the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 connectivity. Gamers can choose to play intense PC games, enjoying all the benefits of its rapid 144 Hz refresh rate, or get the most out of the latest consoles with a refresh rate of 120 Hz at the 4K UHD resolution. Gameplay is butter-smooth thanks to the 1 ms (GtG) fast response time and Adaptive Sync that eliminate tear and stutter, and renders the gaming experience almost entirely lag-free thanks to the low input lag.
The Philips 32M1N5800A delivers accurate colours and rich visuals with an UltraClear 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution and Ultra Wide-Color technology for vivid pictures with a wide gamut area. This model is also certified with VESA DisplayHDR 400 to deliver high dynamic range content with popping colours.
Elaborate and ergonomic setups
The Philips 32M1N5800A also features MultiView to allow connecting multiple sources in PbP mode, ideal for even highly demanding multitasking requirements. Both models feature a 3-sides frameless design and SmartErgoBase, an ergonomic metal stand that offers smart cable management, which is essential for a clean and sleek setup. With today’s hygiene concerns in mind, the 32M1N5800A also features an SIAA-certified surface with anti-bacterial treatment, which reduces the adhesion and growth of bacteria on the monitor’s casing, providing extra peace of mind wherever hardware is shared.
The monitor’s SmartErgoBase enables considerable user-friendly ergonomic adjustments (including height, swivel, tilt, and pivot adjustments) to ease the physical strains of long gaming sessions. Long hours spent gaming without breaks can have a significant impact on the eyes as well, which is why these models feature LowBlue mode and Flicker-free technology for an easy-on-the-eyes viewing experience.
“The classical gamer profile has changed. From our customers we have learned that next to the highest gaming performance, home office functionality is increasingly relevant for their usage. That’s why these two new displays come with the latest technology and additional convenience, featuring a built-in USB Hub, speakers, and more, for both productivity and gaming”, concludes César Reyes Acosta.
