Sporting a built-in VA panel, this 240Hz ultra wide monitor spans 31.5 inches diagonally, offering a 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution (WQHD), and holds DisplayHDR-400 certification.

The display boasts robust features, including a distinct display curvature, potentially around 1000 R, a high contrast ratio of 4000:1, rapid 0.5 ms gray-to-gray response time, 8-bit color depth, and 500 cd/m² brightness.

Additionally, it touts 122 percent sRGB, and 92 percent DCI-P3 coverage, maintaining a Delta-E value of less than 2. FreeSync Premium Pro is integrated to counteract tearing, while the monitor supports picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture modes.

Interface-wise, it’s equipped with two HDMI 2.0 inputs (supporting WQHD at a maximum of 144 Hz), two DisplayPorts 1.4 (backing WQHD at a maximum of 240 Hz), a USB 3.2 hub (Gen 1), and a headphone output.

Regarding ergonomics, it offers multiple adjustments: tilt, rotation, height adjustment, VESA mount compatibility (100 x 100 mm), blue light filtering, and a flicker-free backlight. Due to its pronounced curvature, a pivot function wouldn’t serve any purpose. Weighing 6.5 kg without the stand, the Philips Evnia 32M2C5500W is mercury-free.
