Philips Evnia OLED Gaming Monitor review: A gamer’s dream with Mac in mind

Philips is a household name when it comes to making great displays, and Evnia is its new industry-leading gaming brand. I was fortunate enough to attend Evnia’s global launch in Paris last year, and saw three standout monitors in action for the first time. The star of the show was this, the Evnia 42-inch OLED gaming monitor, a 4K behemoth with ultra-fast response times, insane contrast ratios, HDR 10, and more. While this is definitely a gaming monitor first, a couple of sneaky USB-C ports and premium design make this a dark horse for any gamer who also needs some extra screen real estate for their Mac.

The Philips Evnia 42M2N8900 is available from Amazon in both the U.S. and the UK, as well as retailers including B&H Photo, Ebuyer, Overclockers UK, and more. In the UK prices sit anywhere from around £1,500 to as little as £1,399. Prices in the States are broadly the same in USD, also. 

Philips Evnia OLED Gaming Monitor: Display Quality

The Philips Evnia 42M2N8900 is, in a word, stunning. It boasts a 4K UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160, a typical contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1, HDR 10, and more. As soon as you plug it in and switch it on, you’re wowed by the display quality. I usually roll with 4K on a 32-inch display and was worried the hefty size would dilute the detail, but there’s no sign of that here. It has an awesome 138Hz refresh rate so is perfect for any console gamer, and all but the most hardcore, dedicated PC gamers with the fanciest rigs. The colors across the board are to die for, as are the deep blacks which really aid the contrast. In my extensive testing, I’ve not seen any screen tearing, artifacts, or anything to suggest that this monitor is anything except magnificent. The screen also boasts a luscious matte finish.
