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.
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.
