The new Philips Evnia 42M2N8900 has excellent OLED panels, which are known for their excellent image clarity, contrast, and response times. The anti-glare panel in the monitor features 0.1ms GtG reaction time, 1,500,000:1 contrast ratio, DCI-P3: 98.5% (sRGB 131.3%) gamut, and 10-bit colour.
The Evnia 42M2N8900 has Adaptive Sync, which prevents screen tearing and stuttering with an eye towards gaming. You can easily change the sync frequency between 48 and 138 Hz. Also, this display from Philips has SmartImage game picture enhancement, which is most likely picture histogram settings that have been adjusted to work with different game genres. Gamers will likely appreciate the greater immersion that three-sided Philips Ambiglow backlighting can provide, thanks to its reactive RGB lighting technology.
The major productivity booster in the Evnia 42M2N8900 is the built-in KVM hub, which allows the user to switch between two PCs that share the same screen, mouse and keyboard. The built-in Pip and PbP modes can also be used with the KVM, so just one source needs to take up the entire screen.
The included height of 120mm, swivel, and tilt adjustable ergonomic stand is very useful while working or playing. The dual 10W DTS speakers, USB hub with USB Power Delivery v3.0 up to 90W, DisplayPort 1.4 x 1, USB-C x 1, remote controller, and all cables given are additional general specifications that are appreciated.
