Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB review: look into the future

Despite some flaws, this big monitor is an excellent choice with true hdr


Power consumption

The Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB consumes more than twice as much power at maximum brightness than most of the test field. Even at a brightness of 150 cd/m² its power consumption is significantly higher. Fortunately it is very efficient in standby and when turned off. This is obviously because of the extra lighting, it simply needs more power. As LEDs become more efficient – or other, more efficient forms of backlighting are produced – this disadvantage will decrease, but if you want true hdr you have to contend with higher power consumption for the time being.
