When Sony announced the launch of two new “Inzone” gaming monitors in June, it could only give a vague date of “sometime in 2022” for the availability of the entry-level M3 model. Luckily, although it took a little longer than expected, this M3 launch date has finally arrived in Europe, with gamers in select European countries now able to pre-order the monitor. Although there’s nothing in Sony’s announcement on the matter to confirm exactly when buyers might expect their M3s to ship.
The Inzone M3 monitor, for those readers who missed my June post on this, has some impressive specs. In particular, its 27-inch Full HD display claims to support a 240Hz refresh rate, along with high dynamic range playback backed by 99% coverage of the sRGB color spectrum and auto HDR tone mapping. .
This latest feature works as part of Sony’s Perfect For PlayStation 5 campaign, allowing the console to automatically recognize the monitor during initial setup and optimize its HDR output accordingly. The monitor will also automatically switch between Cinema and Game picture modes depending on the type of content the console is outputting at any given time.
Of course, the M3 also offers various PC-exclusive features, including automatic KVM switch support that allows users to control up to two PCs from a single keyboard, mouse and headset system. There’s also a dedicated FPS gaming picture mode available on the monitor, which adjusts brightness and contrast settings to help you spot enemies more easily, as well as a black equalizer feature that can make it stand out more. detail in dark image areas.
As you’d expect with monitors these days, the M3’s IPS display boasts a 1ms gray-to-gray response time, and it’s compatible with NVIDIA G-Sync and standard HDMI 2.1 refresh rate technology. variable.
Finally, on the key features front, the M3 has been awarded DisplayHDR 400 accreditation by VESA’s independent rating system, meaning it’s capable of peak luminance levels of 400 cd/m2. – the entry-level point at which VESA considers a monitor capable of delivering true HDR live.
While Sony revealed the US price for the M3 to be $529.99 in June, UK and European prices were unconfirmed at that time. Sony has finally revealed that the price in the UK is £699, while the price in Eurozone countries is €699.
Anyone in the UK interested in getting one can pre-order now on Sony’s Inzone website.
