Philips Brilliance 29” UltraWide Monitor

This Philips monitor is of the 21:9 variety and offers up a resolution of 2560 x 1080 on its AH IPS display. The monitor features a narrow bezel, built-in speakers, and comes bundled with SmartControl software to adjest settings via a PC software application.

It has DL-DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, and (optional) Thunderbolt video inputs. It supports MultiView technology, which allows the monitor to accept multiple video inputs and display them simultaneously on the screen.

The Philips Brilliance 29” UltraWide display is available now at online retailers like Amazon. While it has an MSRP of $599 according to the press release, Amazon is actually charging $667.90 for the monitor currently.

P-Line 29” UltraWide Monitor

The P-Line 29” UltraWide is a 21:9 monitor for professionals. It features a 2560 x 1080 resolution AH IPS display with MultiView technology and a “ultra narrow” bezel. EPI claims that the display has both a 178-degree vertical and horizontal viewing angles. There are four USB 3.0 port as well as a height-adjustable stand.

With excellent 8 bit color depth combined with 109 ppi density, you can now enjoy professional true color sRGB images compared to limited 6 bit color depth displays with 82ppi density.

Built-in speakers ensure that you hear the caller clearly, while the monitor’s height-adjustable SmartErgoBase delivers both cable management and ergonomic display comfort that can ease the strain of long workdays.

This professional display also helps to save time, money and energy. The monitor’s Super Speed USB 3.0 ports work about 10 times faster than USB 2.0 standard hubs, significantly reducing data transfer time. A built-in PowerSensor determines if a user is present and automatically reduces monitor brightness when user steps away from the desk, cutting energy costs by up to 80 percent and prolonging monitor life. The display offers a plethora of connectivity options and comes equipped with multi connections like Dual link DVI, Display Port, universal HDMI connector, or optional Thunderbolt.

This MultiView P-line 29” UltraWide display features a superb 21:9 AH IPS screen with an ultra-narrow bezel for an impressive panoramic view. The MultiView functionality enables active dual connect of two separate devices simultaneously on one screen, while the 21:9 format makes the monitor perfectly suitable for viewing large spreadsheets or two full Internet pages side by side on one screen. The display’s 178/178 degree wide viewing angle allows for optimal graphic design, web applications and photo retouching. Whether you require extremely detailed information for CAD-CAM solutions, use 3D graphic applications or are a financial wizard working on huge spreadsheets, this Philips display will deliver Crystalclear 2560×1080 pixel images.

Equipped with four Super Speed USB 3.0 ports, the P-line 29” UltraWide Monitor offers more bandwidth, super speed transfer rates, better power management and superior overall performance.

This enables it to daisy chain multiple monitors to increase efficiency. This multi-monitor capability makes the display particularly useful in Finance, Banking, control room and other similar environments.

Thanks to its advanced SmartErgoBase, the monitor can be lowered down almost to desk level for a comfortable viewing angle. Low bezel-to-table height is the perfect solution for those who use bifocals, trifocals or progressive lens glasses for computing work. Additionally, the adjustable base allows for users of greatly different heights to use the monitor in their preferred angle and height settings, helping them reduce fatigue and strain.
