Xbox Series X/S – 3 premium gaming monitors vouched by Microsoft
Having a next-gen console with all of its next-gen graphics features is only great if your monitor can display them. Hence, buying a new console doesn’t stop at getting your hands on these in-demand items. You also have to purchase accessories, speakers, and most importantly, gaming monitors. And with how diverse the selection is in the monitor and TV market, it might be hard to find the perfect monitor for you. That’s why Microsoft acknowledged 3 Premium Gaming Monitors that are certified for the Xbox Series X/S.
All of these three monitors are capable of bringing out the Xbox Series X/S’s next-gen graphics. With the right HDR cable, these monitors are capable of outputting 4K resolution graphics at 120Hz. But that’s just the start of the long list of features that will make you want to get them. Check out the rest of the features of these Gaming Monitors Designed for Xbox Displays.

Philips Momentum 559M1RYV 55″
The Philips Monitors Momentum 559M1RYV is the “World’s First Monitor Designed for Xbox.” At 55 inches, this monitor will sit pretty and become the center of attention in any living room. It ushers in the new era of gaming by putting the games at the forefront. With a built-in soundbar, this monitor is everything you need on top of your Xbox Series X/S.

At 4K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, the 559M1RYV is also powered with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology to reduce screen tearing. It also has a new, dedicated Xbox picture mode that will optimize the display for gaming. On top of that, there is also a high-contrast HDR with the VESA Certified DisplayHDR 1000, making the brightness levels 3x more diverse than any other monitors in the market.
However, you can get several Xbox Series X/S consoles with just one of these babies. But at $1599.99, this monitor is the last monitor you’ll ever need to purchase in your life.
