Conclusion on the Philips 349X7FJEW Review
The Philips 349X7FJEW features a sleek design that looks sleek and elegant thanks to Edge-to-Edge technology. Thanks to its 1800 mm radius of curvature, you can immerse yourself in what’s happening on the screen. The VA panel provides a strong contrast ratio with rich colours.
Ultra Wide Color technology provides a wide colour spectrum with natural greens, vibrant reds and deep blues. These are optimally accentuated thanks to the high-resolution 3440 x 1440 quad HD Ultra Wide images and a viewing angle of 178 horizontal and vertical.
Thanks to AMD FreeSync and a high refresh rate, the monitor is also very suitable for gamers. I was surprised that 100 Hz were adjustable, but only 60 Hz are mentioned in the data sheet. Here MMD seems to have an error in the data sheet which has a positive effect on the consumer.
Connections are sufficiently available with two HDMI connections, a DisplayPort and two audio inputs and outputs. Thanks to the OSD joystick and the Smart Control software, intuitive operation is guaranteed. The integrated 4x USB hub and the height-adjustable stand deserve special mention. In addition to the limited viewing angle, the average power consumption is a disadvantage.
The price for the Philips 349X7FJEW is about 800 Euro at the time of the test. Thus, the monitor moves in the midfield of this monitor format, including the not advertised refresh rate of 100 Hz, but the monitor is cheaper compared to the competition, which starts at 870 Euro (but also offers G-Sync and not FreeSync).
