Philips has quietly unveiled its new Momentum 392M7C curved monitor, which is aimed at gamers who are after an entry-level large screen display with high refresh rates and variable refresh support. The huge display with a 3000R curvature promises to provide a cinema-like immersion, though its Full-HD resolution and a relatively low pixel density will have an impact on the experience.

Under the hood, the Philips Momentum 392M7C is built from a 38.5-inch VA with a 1920x1080 resolution. The display features a maximum brightness of 250 nits, a 5000:1 contrast ratio, a 3000R curvature, a 1 ms MPRT response time, and a 144 Hz maximum refresh rate with VESA’s Adaptive-Sync variable refresh rate technology on top (e.g. FreeSync). The monitor can display 16.7 million colors and covers 105.48% of the sRGB and 94.11% of the NTSC color gamuts, which is in line with other inexpensive mainstream LCDs.

Besides its size and a high refresh rate, the main peculiarity of the Momentum 392M7C is its Full-HD resolution and a pixel density of 57 PPI, the latter of which is quite low by today’s standards. For gaming and video playback, pixel density is not often crucial – especially when many video sources are 1080p – but for typical productivity applications a 38.5-inch Full-HD screen with a 57 PPI pixel density does not seem like an optimal combination. Meanwhile, the LCD supports Philips’ SmartImage presets for various game genres (FPS, RTS, Racing, custom) to provide optimal experience.

As for connectivity, the Momentum 392M7C has one DisplayPort input, two HDMI inputs, and one D-Sub input to maintain compatibility both with new and legacy PCs. Furthermore, the monitor has a headphone output. As for the stand, only the tilt is adjustable, which is typical for large entry-level monitors.

    1) Anandtech is not a place 'budget people' come to read articles.
    2) Budget equipment articles without a price are near pointless.
    3) I once owned a Phillips screwdriver but had to return it because it was always cross.

    1) who says this is factual statement, many (such as myself) still like to see what is out there, in case they find themselves in a place they maybe cannot / should not be going for the "best $$$ can buy"

    Not everyone of course, but a bunch of folks that is for sure..

    2) 1000000% agree, no list price, should not release other specs as it becomes pointless fill (much like me making such statement) LOL .. shame a WFCC place not follow this "golden rule" as well...

    3) ROFL, that was funny in a mundane way ha ha o7 Amandtec

    Totally agree on #2. Massive 1080p monitors can be great for certain uses but it all comes down to the price.

    I'm a 'Budget person' and I come here to read articles - In fact I'd argue it's more important than the Ultra High End that only 0.1% of people can afford.

    Why are people dumping on this cataract display?
  • iBaller - Monday, November 18, 2019 - link

    HEY! pretentious rich people, a year ago only 6% of gamers had monitors better than 1080p, what do you think it is now huh? 8? 10? 12? , yea i made my point
  • sweenish - Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - link

    LG Ultrafine 4K can be had for $350. 4K TV's are only getting cheaper. It's also 10.12% with resolutions above 1080p (according to Steam survey), but I don't think that takes into account refresh rate or multi-monitor. Since a high refresh rate monitor at 1080p can easily qualify as something that "pretentious rich people" take advantage of. Same as having two 1080p monitors (The most popular multi-monitor setup). That's twice as much money! Your metric is too broad and fails to make a point.

    Nothing is wrong with 1080p. Well, actually, yeah, I think it's too short, 1920×1200 is way nicer, but that aside, nobody is saying anything is wrong with Full HD. It's the fact it's so huge and the pixel density is so goddamn low that is awful.
