If you’ve been salivating at the thought of Philips’ (technically, EPI’s) ultra-bright HDR monitor, you can now do more than clean up the mess you’ve left on the floor. The Momentum 43″ 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor is now available from Amazon and Best Buy for a cool $1,000. That’s a lot to pay for a computer screen, but it’s also charting new ground — this is the first PC monitor to support the DisplayHDR 1000 spec, promising 1,000cd/m2 brightness in scenes that call for it (say, staring at a bright sky) without crushing low-light detail. EPI also touts a wide, accurate color gamut that’s particularly good at tackling dark reds and greens.
