If you’re one of those folks who can never get enough desktop space on your computer screen, you’re going to want to check out this new display from Philips. The Brilliance Curved UltraWide LCD screen (model BDM3490UC) measures in at a substantial 34″ diagonally, and offers a 3440×1440 resolution at 60Hz.

This makes the display approximately 2.4 times larger than your typical 1080p HD display, so you can open up a ton of windows side by side on the display. In addition, the screen includes a technology called “MultiView,” which lets you connect two different devices and view them side by side on the same screen. The display is an AH-IPS panel with LED backlighting, a native response time of 14ms, and dynamic response time of 5ms.

Running at a 21:9 aspect ratio, it’s also great for watching Cinemascope and anamorphic movies that were created in that format. And while I’ve yet to see much more than a stylistic benefit to curved big screen TVs, the curvature is definitely a positive when you’re sitting as close to the screen as you do at your desk.

The display also has a pair of speakers powered by a 7-watt per channel amp and DTS sound. It’s also got a built-in 4-port USB 3.0 hub, and one of the ports supports BC 1.2 Fast Charging.
