Philips Brilliance BDM3490UC review

 

Philips' flagship 21:9 display is a winner

Superb build quality ; Great picture ; Relatively good value compared with rivals

No headline 75-100Hz refresh rate ; No G-Sync or FreeSync ; Inflexible stand

A bright IPS screen goes a long way with any monitor, and having an extra-wide 21:9 curved form factor makes the Philips Brilliance BDM3490UC a real visual treat when playing games or watching movies. Plus it's reasonable value for money too.

If you're really looking to make an impression – and have a great visual experience – with your next computer monitor, the new wave of curved ultrawidescreen panels like the Philips BDM3490UC is a great way to do it.

Elegant stand design ; Impressive and functional ultra widescreen ; Loads of inputs and features ; Excellent image quality

Fiddly OSD controls ; No height adjustment ; No VESA mount ; No G-Sync or Freesync

Philips Brilliance Curved UltraWide (BDM3490UC/27)

 

The 34-inch Philips Brilliance Curved UltraWide BDM3490UC/27 is a sharp-looking ultra-wide monitor that offers a curved screen, lots of video inputs, and very good performance.

Good color and grayscale performance. Lots of I/O ports. Sharp WQHD picture.

Pricey. Lacks advanced color settings. Tilt-only stand.

Philips Brilliance Curved UltraWide LCD display review: 34-inch Quad HD monitor

 

The Philips BDM3490UC is a stylish curved ultrawide display with good image quality, good connectivity and Picture-in-Picture capability. As with all current curved displays, the curve is more style than substance, but the sheer expanse of screen is...

34.1-inch, 21:9 display ; Good image quality ; Extensive PiP options ; Plenty of connections

Screen curvature is more style than substance ; Awkward joystick control for OSD

Philips BDM3490UC

 

Curved screen is worth the extra at this size. The extra space is a great help.

It took a while for the DP to connect reliably to the PC. Not as bright as I expected but bright enough.
