The Philips Brilliance 439P9H is a very accomplished screen. It offers great image quality and a wealth of features. Although the focus is on premium business users and multimedia consumption, it can still hold its own for gaming if this is something you only do from time-to-time.
For the business user, having two USB C connections could be really beneficial, particularly as this will charge a laptop and provide connectivity to a webcam, networking, keyboard and mouse as well as the video. This could be a true one-cable solution for a desktop and your notebook when you want it to. You even get a decent set of built-in speakers, which will be sufficient for watching videos from a distant armchair with friends.
You get a decent amount of adjustability, too, which is not universal with a SuperWide screen. This is an expensive piece of kit at over £800, but unless you’re a hardcore gamer, you won’t be disappointed with what you get for your money. If a 21:9 aspect is just not wide enough, the Philips Brilliance 439P9H will expand your horizons even further, although your wallet will be quite a bit thinner as a result.
The Philips Brilliance 439P9H is available from the BT Shop for £812.80.
