Phillips just launched the world's first monitor with the HDR 1000 Certification. The monitor is able to deliver an incredible 1,000 nits of peak luminance and 97.6% DCI-P3 thanks to the Quantum Dot enhancement film technology inside. 

According to reviewers, the monitor will cost about $1,000 when it launches later this summer.

We're always excited to see new Quantum Dot products hitting the market so we've summed up some of the most interesting comments here

  • arsTechnica's Jeff Dunn said, "HDR isn’t just about sheer brightness—it needs a wider color gamut and greater color depth as well. Philips says the monitor will utilize its 'Ultra Wide-Color" tech to provide that wider color gamut, along with quantum dot tech that is said to particularly boost 'dark reds and greens.'"
  • According to Trusted Reviews' Edward Chester, "[The Philips 436M6VBPAB] also produces the full range of colours required by the HDR 1000 standard, with it hitting 97.6% DCI-P3 colour space coverage thanks to its quantum dot technology."
  • Digital Trend's Kevin Parrish explained that "...the [Philips 436M6VBPAB] is based on quantum dot technology. That means it relies on nano-sized semiconductor crystals that generate pure, monochromatic blue, green, and red light. They also provide a higher peak brightness than your typical pixel on an LCD screen." 
  • Over at TechRadarKevin Lee said, "This could be the brightest gaming monitor we've ever seen"
  • Venture Beat's Jeff Grubb said, "Philips is the first to deliver the highest level of HDR support."
  • DisplayDaily said, "Thanks to the narrow wavelength Quantum Dot sources for red, green and blue, these primary colours are portrayed with more saturation, increasing the vibrance and colour accuracy."
