Today, you can get a 50-inch 4K television these days for under $200 that can double as a computer monitor seamlessly. So, to pay more than five times that amount for a smaller display might seem counterproductive.
Aimed squarely at a business audience, the Brilliance 499P9H is packed with features, but will require a lot of deskspace. After all, this is a 49-inch display with a screen resolution of 5120×1440 pixels (or dual QHD) and a 32:9 aspect ratio – one that’s not only very wide, but highly curved as well
However, the Philips Brilliance 499P9H is unlike any other monitor on the market and it’s on sale at Amazon for just $1,065, with a four-year warranty (roughly £870/AU$1900).
It also features a built-in USB Type-C docking station that can provide up to 65W of power – enough for devices such as the Dell XPS 13 but probably not for the MacBook Pro 16 – and boasts a staggering 10 ports in total.
Two built-in speakers should provide a fair audio experience and there’s even a microphone for the purposes of video conferencing.
Note, while Amazon ships globally, you may be levied additional tax or shipping fees depending on your location.
