Philips Momentum 43 review: Philips Momentum 43 ships as first DisplayHDR 1000-certified 4K monitor for $1,000

PHIA

Philips Momentum 43 ships as first DisplayHDR 1000-certified 4K monitor for $1,000. Announced in April, Philips holds the distinction of being first to ship a DisplayHDR 1000 monitor, the new VESA certification for indicating, well, "this monitor meets some loose criteria for displaying HDR content decently"? But to its credit, the 4K, 43-inch Philips Momentum 43's specs exceed the minimum requirements. The certification calls for a typical brightness of 600 nits and at least 100 percent of the BT.709 color space (similar to sRGB). But the Momentum claims 720 nits and almost 98 percent DCI-P3, the biggest space currently practical. It also has an 80Hz refresh rate plus adaptive sync and a 4-millisecond gray-to-gray response time, which gives it decent gaming cred, especially for consoles. While it's the first monitor to bear the DisplayHDR 1000 imprimatur, it's not the first 1,000-nit HDR monitor. For instance, there's the Acer Predator X27, which supports G-Sync HDR.

'Hard' Brexit could see Philips quit British factory: CEO

PHIA GBPUSD

Dutch electronics giant Philips warned Sunday it may shift production out of Britain in the event of a "hard" Brexit, saying it was "deeply concerned about competitiveness" of its operations there. Any changes in current free trade agreements, the single customs union and current EU product certifications "is a serious threat to the competitiveness of this factory," Van Houten added, saying "we need to do worst case scenario planning." Philips is the latest company in a chorus of major industrial players—which also includes Jaguar Land Rover, BMW and Airbus—to warn about the negative impact of an acrimonious split between the UK and EU. After marathon talks at her country retreat, May's divided cabinet agreed on a new "free trade area" where Britain would accept EU rules for goods. But the British premier still has to sell the plan to Brussels, which could keep Britain tied to the bloc for years after Brexit, even if officials stress parliament would reserve the right to diverge.
