The Philips Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 is a 27-inch external monitor that the company has aimed at professional users. As such, the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 eschews gaming features like a high refresh rate. However, it does have an OLED panel, outputs at 4K and has 0.1 ms G2G response times. The Philips Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 contains plenty of ports too, including a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C connection for recharging devices at up to 90 W.

Philips has unveiled the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900, a 27-inch external monitor that resolves at 3,860 x 2,160 and 60 Hz. While there are many 27-inch and 4K monitors around, few rely on an OLED panel like the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 does. Accordingly, the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 delivers excellent colour accuracy and a high contrast ratio.

Theoretically, the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 has a 1,000,000: contrast ratio, while Philips boasts of 99.7% minimum DCI-P3 colour space coverage. Typically, the monitor should deliver 99.6% AdobeRGB, 119% NTSC and 150% sRGB coverages though, along with <1 Delta E deviations. Also, the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 is DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified and has 0.1 ms G2G response times.

As such, the monitor peaks at over 400 cd/m², but only when viewing HDR content. Specifically, Philips claims that the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 offers up to 540 cd/m² of peak brightness and just 250 cd/m² in SDR content. Separately, Philips has included the following ports, which are all on the monitor's rear:

  • 2x HDMI 2.0
  • 1x DisplayPort 1.4
  • 1x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C (Upstream, Power Delivery up to 90 W)
  • 1x USB Type-B
  • 4x USB 3.2 Type-A (downstream with 2 fast charge B.C 1.2)

Currently, Philips has not confirmed whether it will bring the Momentum 8000 27E1N8900 to Europe or the UK. Conversely, the company will bring the monitor to Asian and North American markets, including China. TFT Central states the monitor will be available in the latter for approximately CNY 7,000 (~US$1,059), but US pricing has not been confirmed yet.
