+ Adaptive-Sync

+ Good LCD panel quality


– VA rather than IPS panel

– 60 Hz refresh rate

Verdict: “A mammoth 5K monitor for business and even light gaming. […] The impressive Phillips 499P9H is one of the more feature-packed ultrawide monitors available today. Its VA panel is 8-bit, rather than IPS and 10-bit, and only supports the DisplayHDR 400 standard – so while it looks fine to the untrained eye, it’s less suited to professional photo and video-editing work compared to its rivals. That’s where our gripes end – this mammoth monitor features plenty of connectivity options including a USB Type-C interface for hooking up a MacBook or other machine, and it goes further than rivals by including a pop-up webcam with Windows Hello Support for snappy face-ID login. The icing on the cake is its adaptive sync support, which makes it suitable for light gaming at 60fps if you have a capable AMD graphics card.”
