Philips offers a new, extremely wide, curved (1800R) monitor to replace multi-monitor setups with a single display. The 43" monitor in 32:10 SuperWide format has a resolution of 3,840 x 1,200 pixels with a screen diagonal of 124cm, which corresponds to a viewing area of 1052 x 329 mm. Its equipment recommends it both for use with notebooks and two PCs at the same time, because it has an integrated KVM switch, MultiView technology and also a USB-C docking station.
The Philips 439P9H has a slightly above average brightness of 450 nits, supports the DisplayHDR 400 standard and covers the BT.-709 color space to 99%, the DCI-P3 color space to 95%, the NTSC to 105%, the sRGB to 123% and the Adobe RGB color space to 91%. Due to the lack of local dimming capability of the 439P9H, the playback of HDR is probably not very convincing - see also When can a monitor display real HDR?. Beware of the DisplayHDR standards).
If the monitor is connected to a notebook via USB-C, it not only supplies it with power, but also connects it via this cable to a local network, which is connected to the display via Ethernet, and enables fast data transfer to mass storage devices docked to the USB hub, such as external hard disks.
If two PCs are connected to the monitor, not only can the images of both be displayed simultaneously via MultiView, but they can also be operated using the KVM switch with only one keyboard and mouse connected to the monitor.
The 439P9H has two DisplayPorts 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, one USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 and one USB-C Hub with two USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 (Upstream), 4 x USB 3.2 Ports (Downstream with 1 x fast charging BC 1.2) and Gigabit Ethernet. It is equipped with a number of features for ergonomic work, such as a LowBlue and EasyRead mode and (for pleasant work) it is +/- 20° swivel, -5/+10° tilt and 130mm height adjustable.
The Philips 439P9H is now available on the market for 979 Euro and is already available in stores for 910 Euro.
