55-inch monitor gets a 144 Hz upgrade with HDMI 2.1


from Benjamin Gründken
Philips launched a 55-inch monitor with a 120 Hz display last summer. In the successor, the Momentum 559M1RYV, Philips has increased it to 144 Hz and HDMI 2.1.

When Philips launched the Momentum 558M1RY monitor in the summer of 2020, quite a few were reminded of a TV set. This was not least due to the lush screen diagonal of 55 inches (approx. 140 centimeters). Now a successor is already in the starting blocks at Philips.

 The  559M1RYV does not outperform its predecessors in all respects, but now offers an even higher refresh rate with 144 instead of 120 Hz. On top of that there is now the missing HDMI 2.1 and USB-C.

 The  screen gets its 3840 x 2160 pixels via HDMI and Displayport (1.4) with 144 Hz. If you connect the Momentum 559M1RYV via USB-C, it stays at 120 Hertz. A VA panel with a contrast ratio of 4,000: 1 is also used. Thanks to a brightness of 1,200 cd / m² (peak), the monitor can come up with a Display HDR 1000 certification. All details can already be found on an official product page.

 The  predecessor already offered the Ambilights known from the TV sector, only that these were renamed Ambiglow for the Momentum 558M1RY. Like the just announced Momentum 559M1RYV, it seems to be designed for use in the living room. According to Philips, the Momentum monitors process signals much faster than comparable TVs because they do not use smart apps.

 The  predecessor is currently changing hands from around 1,145 euros. Against this background, it is to be expected that the Momentum 559M1RYV will hit at least in similar price regions.
