With the 346P1CRH, MMD and Philips are showing a new, ultra-wide and curved screen that has all-round neat features. The monitor has a lot to offer, from the USB-C docking functionality to the decent resolution and the VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification
The Philips 346P1CRH uses a 34 inch VA panel in 21: 9 format with a curvature of 1500R. The resolution is 3,440 x 1,440 pixels at up to 100 Hz. The maximum brightness is 500 cd / m², the contrast ratio is specified by the manufacturer as a maximum of 3,000: 1. That is enough for a VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. The display of the colors is quite decent: the DCI-P3 color space is covered to 90 percent, Adobe RGB can be displayed to 88 percent, with sRGB it is even 120 percent.
The USB-C docking functionality is particularly interesting – a connected notebook can be charged with up to 90 watts via a single USB-C cable, with an additional DisplayPort, an Ethernet port and four USB-A 3.0 connections be connected. If desired, the monitor can also be connected to a computer via DisplayPort 1.4 or HDMI 2.0.
In addition, 5 watt speakers and a 2 megapixel full HD webcam as well as a microphone and a headphone output are integrated in the monitor. The height of the stand can be adjusted and tilted. An integrated KVM switch allows the monitor and the connected mouse and keyboard to be used simultaneously with two computers and to be able to easily switch between them.
Deliveries of the Philips 346P1CRH will begin in March at a price of £ 499.
