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.

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 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.

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.
