Philips MMD 498P9Z – Next level multitasking

People who use computers do it every day: multitasking. It’s something difficult, but with the right tools, it might just be fun!The Philips MMD 498P9Z (I hate names like these), is a top notch Ultra Wide monitor, perfect for multitasking.

We’ve tested the monitor, so check out our review below.



Pro’s on the monitor:

  • Multitasking is awesome
  • 32:9 – superwide 49” – biggest screen I’ve ever seen
  • Adaptive Sync 165 Hz
  • Display HDR 400 – 1440p
  • 3 screens in one
  • Two devices at the same time, so if you have two pc’s (one for recording for example and one for gaming) you can view them both on one screen
  • Good screen quality
  • Good viewable in angles
  • Screen can go up, down and swivel and pivot
  • Vesa mount
  • Nice design and stand
  • Small bezels

Cons on the device

  • no usb c, but enough other inputs
  • High price (+1.000$)
  • Big (but won’t slip) and you’ll need a lot of space
  • For Mac, because there’s no usb c you have to use Hdmi (in new Macs) or a converter, which will drain battery life, so no power and video over usb c
  • Response time of 4ms, which doesn’t make it great for hardcore gamers – some games won’t be supported to play ultra wide, but for casuals it’s ok
  • As said, quality Is great, but HDR is not that impressive
