Philips Brilliance 439P9H Display Is Wider Than Wide

Think You Are Widescreen? Try 32:10!

Philips’ Brilliance 439P9H 43″ display takes widescreen to an extreme aspect ratio of 32:10, with a resolution of 3840 x 1200.  The FreeSync 2 VA panel features an 1800R curvature and a top refresh rate of 100Hz, which will run you close to $1000 to pick up.  Kitguru’s testing showed this is much better for productivity than for gaming, as sad as that is but it will still offer a decent gaming experience if you have your heart set on it.

For the business user the pair of USB-C ports are invaluable, as you could charge your laptop directly from the monitor, there is a four-port USB 3.2 hub and even a ethernet jack so you can use this as a full docking station.  You might want to grab an external webcam if you do a lot of video conferencing, though there is a 2Mpixel webcam built in along with 5W speakers.

Check out this glorious beast here.


In fact, we’ve never seen a screen with precisely this aspect ratio. If you thought 21:9 was stretching your peripheral vision, the 439P9H goes even further, to 32:10. With a 43.4in diagonal and 3,840 x 1,200 native resolution, this is a lot of pixels and a lot of screen.

    The UK price (£812.80) includes 20% VAT (sales tax) our prices always include it, the US price would be around $800 before any of your sales taxes are applied.

    Still less pixels than 4k right?

      A little over half the pixels of 4K. And now some numbers because I’m bored:

      • 4K (4096×2160): 8,847,360 pixels
      • UHD (3840×2160): 8,294,400 pixels
      • Philips Brilliance 439P9H (3840×1200): 4,608,000 pixels

    Now that I’ve actually added up the pixels for the first time with an ultrawide I suddenly realize that I need to be running one of these. Roughly half the pixels of 4K makes a GPU very happy.

      That was EXACTLY what I was thinking. It’s why I went 3440*1440 instead of 4k last year
