Details of this new screen from Philips first appeared on Chinese retailer Taobao in Dec 2020 but now the 329M1RV in their ‘Momentum’ line-up is officially announced by Philips. The 329M1RV is a 31.5″ sized monitor offering a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution ‘Fast IPS’ technology panel along with a 144Hz refresh rate. It uses adaptive sync to support Variable Refresh Rates (VRR) from both NVIDIA and AMD systems, and also includes the latest HDMI 2.1 connectivity making it suitable for modern Xbox and PS5 games consoles. This includes support for 4K @ 120Hz and VRR too. In fact this model is part of Philips’ “Designed for Xbox” line-up, supposedly optimised for compatibility and performance from that Microsoft console.

Philips 329M1RV Specs

Spec wise the 31.5″ sized screen offers a 3840 x 2160 4K resolution, 1ms G2G quoted response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 10-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut covering 124% sRGB (CIE 1931), 111% Adobe RGB (CIE 1976) and 95% DCI-P3 colour gamut.

A 1ms MPRT spec is also listed which implies the inclusion of a blur reduction backlight mode. VRR performance is certified under the FreeSync Premium scheme by the way.

HDR performance is limited, with the screen only carrying the lowly HDR 400 certification. Don’t expect anything particularly beneficial in terms of HDR capabilities here.

Ambiglow technology included along with DTS sound

The specs list inclusion of Philips’ Ambiglow technology for creating nice RGB lighting effects as seen on many of their TV models. There is also DTS sound supported by the integrated 2x 5W speakers. The screen also carried a factory calibration with dE <2 quoted

Connectivity includes HDMI 2.1 for console gaming

1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x USB type-C (inc DP Alt mode and 65W power delivery) and 3x HDMI 2.1 ports are available for connectivity along with an audio output. The stand includes tilt, swivel and height adjustments.

The 329M1RV is expected to be available in November 2021 at a retail price of £899.99 in the UK.
