The Philips Super Wide Monitor 499P9H basically offers the best of both worlds. On the one hand, it’s an excellent work computer that looks great in an office environment. On the other hand, it is a reliable gaming computer that creates a great gaming experience with crisp colors and clear contours. It is designed to support ergonomic and back-friendly work on the one hand and to be an eye-catcher in every office and gaming area on the other hand.

 

Optics & Design

Two becomes one. This Curved superwide monitor with LCD display operates with a 32:9 aspect ratio, which means it is capable of providing the performance of two 27-inch screens. This is a great advantage in a variety of work environments, but also in gaming. The monitor has a design-technically unusual stand, which is a real eye-catcher. Despite its unusual design, it is very reliable and offers a high degree of stability.

The monitor itself also scores with its extraordinary chic and high-quality design. It enhances an office area and looks good even in your home gambling den. Its curved display supports the eyes while working by providing a natural field of vision, but also gives the screen a particularly chic and unique look.

Tech Specs & Connections

The screen has a variety of features that are equally useful for working and gaming. For example, the Superwide screen works with 5120 x 1440 pixels and is adapted to the natural human field of vision. It also has an integrated USB-C docking station. A single plug can be used to connect various devices and charge them during operation. Both data transfer and recharging is very fast.

A special highlight of this model is its synchronization technology. This ensures that images are played back smoothly and without interference. The individual picture elements are razor sharp and the colours are extremely clear and lifelike. This makes it possible to play a game without interruptions and benefit from the shortest possible reaction time. This is an immense advantage, especially when playing games against others.

The monitor works with a VA-LCD display and uses a W-LED system for backlighting. It is equipped with anti-reflection and shiny fog to ensure that the images are of the highest possible quality. The brightness is 450 cd/m² and a flicker-free feature ensures that the eyes are protected when working and playing. Two HDMI connectivity and three USB connectivity options are available. A USB-C port can also be used.

Ergonomics & energy consumption

A healthy posture is equally important when working and playing. That’s why the Philips 499P9H is designed to be height adjustable. This makes it easy for you to adjust it to your personal needs and create the healthiest possible working environment. However, the screen is in the B energy efficiency class and is not one of the most energy efficient models on the market.
