Philips Evnia 25M2N5200P: New gaming monitor arriving soon with 280 Hz refresh rate and USB hub
Philips has presented the Evnia 25M2N5200P, a more expensive alternative to the Evnia 25M2N3200W. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the former contains a few more features than the latter, although both are 24.5-inch and 1080p monitors. According to Philips, it has based the Evnia 25M2N5200P on an IPS panel. In comparison, the Evnia 25M2N3200W relies on a VA panel with lower peak brightness but a higher contrast ratio.
Specifically, the Evnia 25M2N5200P combines 400 nits peak brightness with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Moreover, the monitor offers 8-bit colour depth and HDR10 coverage, plus a 280 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms GtG response times and AMD FreeSync Premium support. For reference, the gaming monitor has more I/O than the Evnia 25M2N3200W, which lacks any USB ports. As one image below shows, the Evnia 25M2N5200P ships with the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm jack
- 1x DisplayPort 1.4
- 2x HDMI 2.0
- 4x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
- 1x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-B
Also, Philips has included an adjustable stand and VESA 100 x 100 mm mounts for using a third-party stand. The Evnia 25M2N5200P should be available this week in multiple markets. Philips states that the monitor carries a €309 MSRP in the Eurozone. Correspondingly, the company will sell the Evnia 25M2N5200P in the UK too for £269.99.
