Verdict: “If you are the sort of person who often feels the need to have two or three work areas on the go at any given moment, then the 45B1U6900CH will be the answer to your prayers. It certainly gave a boost to my productivity since writing reviews is so much easier when you can have a document, the spec sheet, and your test results all open on the desktop at the same time. Of course, the same could be said of any super wide, but those two Type-C inputs are the killer advantage if you need to connect two laptops, or a laptop and a mobile device, to your KVM setup. […] It can get a bit wobbly, but the sheer display space offered by the Philips 45B1U6900CH SuperWide is hard to beat.”

It also has got AMD FreeSync technology, certification with NVIDIA G-SYNC and better still, DisplayHDR True Black 400, which gives you a lifelike HDR reproduction. You’ve then also got a built-in KVM switch and also Philips Ambiglow technology. […] In terms of the overall motion clarity this monitor does also meet a VESA certification, which is more specifically ClearMR 13000, which is the highest scale that one can achieve. So, it’s great to see that the overall motion clarity, at least according to VESA and of course Phillips, is absolute top-notch.”
