For some the ‘4K’ UHD resolution is about having a tight pixel density, delivering exceptional clarity and detail. For others it’s about the big screen experience coupled with a decent pixel density. The Philips 439P1 is built around the latter. The screen itself is naturally dominant from the front, with home-office styling that’s a bit less ‘TV-like’ than many screens of this size. The bezels are single stage, with a moderately thick matte plastic bezel covering the panel border. A rectangular stand base provides solid footing, with a broad stand neck that fits the overall size of the screen. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the right side as viewed from the front.
A 43″ (42.51″) 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) VA panel is used, with matte anti-glare screen surface and a specified static contrast ratio of 4000:1. 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles are specified, whilst 10-bit colour is supported. The screen has a 60Hz refresh rate, alongside Adaptive-Sync, with a 48 – 60Hz VRR range. The screen is factory calibrated with a DeltaE <2 for the sRGB colour space. A flicker-free WLED backlight offers a 400 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and 90% Adobe RGB colour gamut (126% sRGB). Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are included to promote enhanced viewing comfort, whilst the monitor responds to HDR10 content. More specifically, it’s VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified. Allowing a basic HDR experience, without local dimming or particularly high luminance levels required. But allowing the reasonably generous colour gamut and 10-bit colour support to be put to good use.
The screen attaches to the stand using 200 x 200mm VESA mounting – an VESA compatible solution can be used instead of the included stand, if preferred. The stand offers tilt, swivel and height (100mm or 3.94 inches) adjustment. 200 x 200mm VESA holes are included for alternative mounting. Most of the ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter with ‘zero watt’ switch), 3 HDMI 2.0 ports, DP 1.4, USB-C (90W PD, DP Alt Mode and upstream data), RJ45 LAN port, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB 3.2 upstream and USB-C downstream (15W PD). 4 USB 3.2 ports (1 with BC 1.2 fast-charging) are found at the left side, as viewed from the front. The monitor supports KVM functionality, allowing USB peripherals to be shared between multiple systems. And 4-way PIP/PBP, with 2 x 5W speakers included for potentially quite rich sound output.
