As high-end monitor availability continues to grow, MMD has announced its latest entry into the market with the Philips 346P1CRH. The new 34″ LCD Monitor features a curved ultrawide QHD display at a 3440 x 1440 resolution with DisplayHDR 400 to help deliver crisper visuals for users. It comes equipped with DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0 and RJ45 connections to support the latest graphics cards.

To put it over the edge, the Philips 346P1CRH comes with a built-in USB-C docking station with power that allows users to connect a variety of peripherals to the display. From charging devices to transferring files, the monitor claims to allow users to “eliminate cable clutter.”

A great look at any angle

In addition to cable management, the ultrawide monitor features MultiView technology, allowing you to connect multiple devices at once and use them simultaneously with a single mouse and keyboard setup. It will also come with an attached webcam that can be used for facial recognition, a 4ms response time, 5-watt speakers, a picture-in-picture mode, adaptive sync technology to eliminate screen tear, and more. For those who don’t see the need for the attached webcam, it will be able to be hidden behind the display.
