Philips Brilliance MultiView (298P4QJEB)

 

The Philips Brilliance MultiView (298P4QJEB) is a stylish, 29-inch, ultra-wide In-Plane Switching (IPS) monitor that delivers good gray scale and viewing angle performance and is loaded with features.

Good gray scale and viewing angle performance. Robust colors. Generous feature set

Pricey. Slightly saturated greens. Tinny speakers

If a typical widescreen display just doesn't give you the screen real estate you need and you don't have room for a dual-screen setup, it might be time to consider an ultra-wide monitor. The Philips Brilliance MultiView (298P4QJEB) ($699.99) sports a...

Extra wide screen. Perfect for media editing and creation ; Plug and play. Great connectivity due to number of ports available ; Pivoting action, 90 degrees, for when you need to display code or something similar to avoid having to scroll down

Great screen ; Better than two separate monitors ; Multiple inputs avoids separate KVM (just use USB switch instead) ; Automatically detected in Windows and Linux with NVIDIA Drivers

Setting it up in Linux (with Intel HD 3000) required a bit more effort. Here is the modline you need ; Modeline "2560x1080_60" 181.25 2560 2608 2640 2720 1080 1083 1093 1111 +hsync -vsync
