Features of the Philips 349X7FJEW monitor
The VA panel covers about 117 percent of the sRGB color palette and has a standard color spectrum of 99.8 percent (NTSC). The UltraWide 21 : 9 image format provides plenty of space to display multiple objects side by side. Not only gamers and designers enjoy the razor-sharp images and vivid colours. The response time of 4 ms enables even fast-moving images to be displayed optimally. The Philips 349X7FJEW is suitable for any professional application, but is also a pleasure for the home user.
The viewing angle is 178 degrees both horizontally and vertically. Thanks to MultiView, two image sources can be displayed simultaneously on the monitor. They can be displayed next to each other in two equally sized areas or as picture-in-picture.
AMD FreeSync technology provides a smooth gaming experience. A problem with gaming is a checked game playback or disturbed frames. With the new Philips 349X7FJEW monitor these problems are a thing of the past. The AMD FreeSync technology of the monitor offers:
- interference-free, smooth playback independent of frame rate
- quick refresh of the screen without interruptions
- high refresh rate of 100 Hz
With the ultra-high resolution (3440 x 1440) MultiView Monitor 349X7FJEW two devices can be connected simultaneously and displayed on the monitor. This gives you the ultimate connectivity at home or in the office. While on the left side you can see the latest news, on the right side you can write a text on your laptop.
Studies have shown that short-wave blue light rays from LED screens are very harmful to the eyes and can impair vision. The intelligent technology of Philips LowBlue mode reduces blue light and prevents fatigue and long-term damage.
Using the OSD joystick on the back of the monitor, you can navigate through the OSD menu, which can be displayed in 21 languages. The joystick simultaneously turns off the screen if you hold it down for three seconds. Further functions of the joystick:
- switch between the SmartImage image defaults
- Control the volume of the built-in 5-watt speakers
- Change the input selection
The operation of the Philips 349X7FJEW monitor is simple and intuitive thanks to the OSD joystick.
I noticed the status LED below the monitor as annoying. The illuminated Philips lettering is very large and flashes in standby, so whoever has the monitor in the bedroom will always have to switch the monitor off completely, for which you have to hold the joystick for 3 seconds each time.
