Philips Momentum broke new ground in console gaming as the first monitor to achieve VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification. We are thrilled that the Momentum console gaming monitors will deliver a new standard of audio-visual experience that will bring out the very best in your Xbox.

On top of the impressive specifications of the panel, the Phillips Momentum 559M1RYV has a specially designed speaker enclosure designed by the engineers over at Bowers & Wilkins. Phillips has even created the Xbox Game Mode which is a mode specially designed to give the best performance while gaming on the Xbox Series X.

Whilst this is the first Designed for Xbox gaming monitor, neither Microsoft nor Phillips has explained what a monitor has to have to qualify as a 'Designed for Xbox' gaming monitor. Judging from what Phillips has presented with the Momentum 559M1RYV, it certainly has to be an impressive monitor with a fast refresh rate and low latency.

The Philips Momentum 55" 4K Designed for Xbox Console Gaming Monitor (559M1RYV) is quite an impressive gaming monitor, but to get your hands one, it will set you back $1,599.99 USD. Certainly, a high price to price for a gaming monitor.
