Philips Evnia 42M2N8900 OLED gaming monitor now available for cheaper than advertised
Philips has finally released the Evnia 42M2N8900, one of four monitors that the company previewed in October 2022. The Evnia 42M2N8900 launches alongside the Evnia 34M2C8600 as the most expensive model in the Evnia series, albeit at a slightly lower price point than Philips announced four months ago. Still, the Evnia 42M2N8900 retails for well over £1,000.
To recap, the Evnia 42M2N8900 is an OLED gaming monitor that measures 41.5-inches across. According to Philips, the monitor outputs at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels with a 138 Hz refresh rate. Please note that the latter is only possible when connecting the monitor via DisplayPort. In comparison, the Evnia 42M2N8900 peaks at 4K and 120 Hz via its HDMI 2.1 ports. Additionally, the panel offers 0.1 ms GtG response times, 450 nit peak brightness, a low input lag mode and HDR10 support. Moreover, the Evnia 42M2N8900 covers 93.6% of the AdobeRGB colour space and has a 1,500,000:1 typical contrast ratio with <2 Delta E deviations (sRGB).
Philips also equips the Evnia 42M2N8900 with 3-sided Ambiglow lights, two HDMI 2.1 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4 connection and a USB Type-C port that supports data, video and power delivery (90 W). Furthermore, the Evnia 42M2N8900 ships with a single USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, one USB Type-B upstream port and four USB Type-A downstream ports. Separately, the Evnia 42M2N8900 has stereo 10 W speakers, a 100 x 100 mm VESA mount and an adjustable stand. The Philips Evnia 42M2N8900 is orderable now for £1,499, £70 less than expected. By contrast, Philips offers the same monitor in the Eurozone for €1,849, down from €1,959. Please see Philips' website for more details.
