Philips Announces the Brilliance 329P9H Monitor: 32" 4K, IPS, 60 Hz, 5 ms, 350 nits

Phillips announced the latest in their Brilliance line of PC monitors. The 329P9H monitor features a 31.5" diagonal with a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution. The panel is of the IPS type, and a fairly basic one at that when it comes to features gamers expect: a 60 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response times aren't the most attractive for serious gaming - but then again, this monitor isn't really being marketed for serious gaming. And there's life in the PC world besides that one.

For those users that still think this monitor is interesting, the anti-glare coating and 350 nits of brightness should be interesting propositions for a more work-inspired usage scenario. The 178º angle of view and 1.07 billion colors join a wider than usual color gamut, covering 108% of the sRGB, 90% of the NTSC CIE1976, or 87% of the Adobe RGB color spaces to serve creative professionals' (or just color-correct amateurs) a precise environment. The Brilliance 329P9H also ships factory-calibrated to a Delta E < 2 accuracy. Height, tilt, and swivel are available, as well as a 90 degree rotation capability. I/O stands at 1x DisplayPort 1.2 input, 1x DisplayPort 1.2 output, 2x HDMI 2.0a, 1x USB Type-C (with DP 1.2, 65 W PD, data), as well as a 4-port USB 3.0 hub (one supports fast charging) and one Ethernet, GbE port. The recommended price for the Philips 329PH9 stands at £809, so MSRP in the US should land around the $899 mark.

For 899$ it should have 144Hz, 500+ nits and 2ms response time.

Three out of four, maybe, but usually the bottom one is a lot thicker. Then there's the black lines inside the bezels...

Keep in mind that this is an office/work display for laptop users, not for gaming, so don't be too hard on it.

$899 won't even get you a 34" 3440x1440 144Hz panel. For that price you can get a 27" UHD 144Hz monitor with HDR400 and FreeSync, but to think you can get a 32" model with those specs at that price point is nowhere near realistic.

I'd still like it to be a couple of hundred bucks cheaper, but overall it's not bad for a work monitor.
You get built-in FHD webcam (shitty, but still a webcam), built-in 2x2W speakers, an entire docking solution w/ DP alt mode, PD for all of your laptop/tablet/smartphone needs, and BC1.2 on downstream USB.
