Another addition to the 5000 series of monitors from Philips. After the two 27-inch monitors at the beginning of June, the Philips 34E1C5600HE was introduced. It comes with a 34-inch curved display, offers a WQHD resolution and relies on a Windows Hello webcam with 5 megapixels.
Philips 34E1C5600HE: Details and info
Those looking for a large ultrawide monitor for home office or light gaming use might find what they’re looking for in the new Philips 34E1C5600HE. On offer is a 34-inch (86.36 cm) VA panel with LED backlighting that resolves in WQHD (3,440 x 1,440 pixels) and offers a frame rate of 100 Hz.
The gray-to-grey response time is 4 milliseconds, which also makes the monitor a quite good gaming display. The maximum brightness is 300 cd/m², while the contrast ratio is rated at a panel-typical 3,000:1.
The sRGB color space is covered by 123.24 percent, the NTSC color space by 99.25 percent. There is also a “SmartImage game” image optimization, a low-blue light mode, and AdaptiveSync. The display has a curvature of 1500R and should thus offer excellent immersion.
Thanks to Ultra Wide Color technology, the monitor offers a wider color spectrum for a more brilliant picture. Ultra Wide Color’s color gamut produces more natural greens, more vibrant reds, and deeper blues.
Connections, features and more
The Philips 34E1C5600HE monitor also offers a 178-degree viewing angle from all sides and features two built-in speakers, each with 5 watts of power. Thanks to the 5-MP Hello webcam, you’ll also be ready for video conferencing and can quickly log into Windows.
A USB-C connection with power supply is also offered, thanks to which connected devices can also be charged with a maximum of 65 watts while displaying in high resolution or transferring data. The slim, rotatable USB-C port enables an easy connection with only one cable.
This is joined by HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 once each, as well as a USB hub with 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1, and 4x USB-A downstream (with 1 fast-charging B.C 1.2). Thanks to MultiView, images from two sources can be processed and displayed simultaneously. Optionally with picture in picture (PIP) or picture next to picture (PBP). A 100 x 100 mm VESA mount is also provided, as well as a Kensington lock.
In terms of ergonomics, there is the option to adjust the display by 130 mm in height or tilt it between -5 degrees and 20 degrees. According to the manufacturer, the power consumption should be 57 watts in a switched-on state. In standby mode, however, the 9.29 kg Philips 34E1C5600HE consumes 0.5 watts.

The Philips 34E1C5600HE UWQHD monitor is expected to make its way to German retailers in July 2022. Price-wise, you set the MSRP at 619 euros. You can find more details on the manufacturer’s product website.
