Product Overview

Philips 342B1C is a mainstream 34-inch UW-FHD ultra-wide 1500R-curved monitor designed for business use in Philips's 2019 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel.
Its 1500R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
