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 im Test


Im TV-Bereich bietet Philips bereits verschiedene Curved-Geräte an, im PC-Segment ist der 34-Zöller BDM3490UC das bislang erste und einzige Modell. Unser Test deckt einige Schwächen auf.

21:9-Breitbildanzeige mit Krümmung ; stabiler Standfuß ; gute Lautsprecher ; gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis

Ausleuchtung ungleichmäßig ; keine Höhenverstellung

Der Philips BDM3490UC hat Schwächen bei der Ausleuchtung und der Ergonomie, ist dafür aber recht günstig.

Philips BDM3490UC: ampio, Quad HD e ... curvo


All'ultimo IFA ha destato scalpore. La sua reale disponibilità sugli scaffali si fatta attendere un po', ma ora è qui e dimostra di meritare l'attesa: è il Philips BDM3490UC, spettacolare monitor curvo da 34" in formato 21:9.

Vi sætter stor pris på Philips' skærme, lige fra producentens kostbare ultrabrede skærm til 4K-giganten på 40 tommer. Men når man stiller denne buede 21:9

Review Philips BDM3490UC: Extra breed |


De Philips BDM3490UC is een absolute parel, maar eentje waar je flink wat geld voor moet neertellen.

Indrukwekkend beeld ; Mooie afwerking ; MHL-connectiviteit

Curve voegt niets toe ; Decadente prijs ; Niet in hoogte verstelbaar
