MMD, the brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the launch of the 34" (86.36 cm) Philips 346P1CRH LCD monitor. Featuring a curved UWQHD display with DisplayHDR 400, this monitor delivers an good visual performance.

In addition to offering a host of convenient connectivity features such as a built-in USB-C docking station and KVM switch, and a wide array of technologies and innovations to enhance user comfort and ensure the most productive, enjoyable work day possible.





Hassle-free connectivity
In terms of connectivity, the Philips 346P1CRH has it all. Equipped with DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0 and RJ45, it also features a built-in USB-C docking station with power delivery that offers instant productivity. Users can simply and easily connect all of their peripherals to the monitor, eliminating cable clutter while recharging their notebook computer with one simple, reversible USB-C connector that also allows them to watch high-resolution videos, transfer files at super speed, and more. Thanks to MultiView technology, users can take advantage of dual connect and view to simultaneously work with multiple devices, such as a PC and notebook computer, while a MultiClient Integrated KVM switch enables them to control two separate PCs with a single monitor-keyboard-mouse set-up and provides the ability to toggle back and forth between sources at the push of a button.

Proper picture quality
The Philips 346P1CRH offers users the visual pleasure of CrystalClear images with QHD 3440 x 1440 resolution for exceedingly crisp, lifelike picture quality. VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 means extra brightness, deeper contrasts and stunning colours for images that truly pack a punch. The screen's 178/178 wide viewing angles and UltraWide 21:9 format make it guru enough to accommodate group work as well as side-by-side multi-file comparisons that professionals in finance, banking and graphic design are certain to appreciate. And gaming fans are in for a visual treat as well, thanks to Adaptive-Sync technology that guarantees fast, fluid gameplay.

Extra comfort, enhanced convenience
The Philips 346P1CRH is packed with smart, efficient features to boost comfort and convenience. A height-adjustable, tiltable stand ensures ergonomic ease, while TÜV certified eye comfort features reduce eye fatigue. A handy Windows Hello pop-up webcam equipped with facial recognition technology provides secure login and can be discretely tucked away when not in use. This monitor is ecologically-minded as well, offering power-saving features such as a LightSensor and PowerSensor that can save up to 70% on energy costs. It also meets EnergyStar 8.0, EPEAT* and RoHS standards, is free of harmful substances such as mercury and lead, and uses 100% recycled packaging material.

Powerful, feature-rich, and a delight to behold, the Philips 346P1CRH monitor will be available from March 2020 with an RRP of £499 / 589 euro.

100 Hz. It's right there in the title.

They pretty much released same display for the third time. 1b, 1c with kvm and now this. Too bad the panel used is a mediocre quality VA.

Push the price down a bit... or this will be forgotten fast.

As in, -100 bucks or so. This looks like a 60hz native VA with overdrive ergo ghosting/smearing noticeably. 400 nits isn't special and I dread to see how that is calibrated. The only good thing is probably display size and curve + resolution, which seems an OK match.

Gotta say I do applaud seeing the standard featureset of monitors grow. Adaptive sync is becoming near standard now, and a decent refresh rate is no longer forgotten completely. The execution matters, but its a start anyway.

Actually, there are very few 400nits or eve 350nits UWQHD monitors, so for the price that is an amazing feature!

Also, max brightness is 500nits apparantly, even though it has vesa displayhdr400, so I'll be checking out the reviews!

Maybe it's an optical illusion, but the second pic makes it look like it's not a continuous curved radius, but split into three equal segments - flat at either edge and curved in the middle.

If that's the case, then this is a hard nope. I can adjust to uniform curves, but dealing with mixed radii as objects cross the screen is going to be a mindf**k.

High peak brightness is not a very relevant stat above 350cd/m.

What it does give you is a brighter backlight with as a result a higher black point. Static contrast is where its at, not brightness.

Higher brightness has its uses in well lit rooms on bright sunny days.

I'll agree that static contrast is equally valuable for image quality, and in most use cases the maximum contrast at 200 nits or lower is what matters.

Certainly there are matte screens at work in a corner office with windows making up two of the four walls and 400 nits isn't always enough, but it's all the Dell ultrasharps are capable of...
