Test the Philips Evnia 42M2N8900/00 – a 42-inch 4K OLED monitor for gamers.  Great image quality in XL format

In October 2022, Philips (or rather TP Vision, to which Philips belongs) introduced a new brand of Evnia monitors for gamers. We then had the opportunity to take a closer look at three models – a 34-inch VA with Mini LED backlighting, a 34-inch QD-OLED model and a 41.5-inch OLED. We had the opportunity to test the first of the aforementioned displays a few months ago. Now is the time to get a giant monitor with a size of approximately 42 inches, which is also our recommended choice in a dedicated article containing a list of the most interesting monitors, especially those dedicated to gaming. The Philips Evnia 42M2N8900/00 uses a panel from LG Display, but that doesn't mean the manufacturer doesn't add something of its own. That something is the amazing Ambiglow backlight system, which works on a similar principle to the Ambilight system in Philips TVs.

Philips Evnia 42M2N8900/00, unlike many gaming monitors, has a bright housing color, which, combined with the advanced Ambiglow backlight system, gives an interesting finishing effect. The device itself is intended for people who like to interact with very large screens. Here we find a roughly 42-inch OLED (WOLED) panel from LG Display. It features 4K resolution, brightness up to 1000 nits in HDR mode, refresh rate up to 138 Hz, and Adaptive Sync support (for AMD it's FreeSync Premium, for NVIDIA it's unofficially compatible with G-SYNC). Currently, we can get this screen for less than PLN 5,000, which still seems pretty overpriced for a 42-inch OLED screen. Unless TVs with similar diagonals are an alternative for you (for example, due to the lack of DisplayPort), the final price may turn out to be acceptable. There is also a 3-year manufacturer's warranty.

The Philips Evnia 42M2N8900/00 offers an approximately 42-inch OLED display with a resolution of 3480 x 2160 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 138 Hz. The equipment is based on a matrix from LG Display.

The OLED displays produced by LG Display are so-called WRGB OLED, in which an additional white diode is placed between the red, green and blue diodes. The matrix offers a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz (138 Hz after OC) – therefore it can also be an excellent solution for the most dynamic games. Since we're dealing with an OLED display, we won't find any tricks here, such as 8-bit color depth with the addition of FRC. The matrix from LG Display used in the Philips Evnia 42M2N8900/00 monitor provides a full 10-bit color depth, which translates into displaying more than a billion shades of color. There is also support for the basic HDR10 standard. With excellent black quality and a very high contrast ratio, users can count on an exceptionally vivid, almost lifelike image. Although OLED displays usually have a glossy surface, the matrix in the KTC G27P6 uses a matte coating, thanks to which there are almost no reflections on the screen.

Philips Evnia 34M2C7600MV Test – 34-inch VA monitor with Mini LED backlighting and VESA DisplayHDR 1400

In our Philips Evnia 42M2N8900/00 monitor test, we focus on several aspects that are most important from the point of view of daily use. So we will take a closer look at the build quality and use of the OSD menu. The colorimetry of sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 color space maps will be checked, as well as errors in color representation noted. We will also check the uniformity of the backlight and brightness in several scenarios and the presence of backlight bleeding. There will also be a discussion of viewing angles, input lag (matrix delay), smearing, and power consumption.
