Dell C3422WE has an extraordinary and expensive monitor in its range equipped with a camera and speakers. This makes the 34-inch exceptionally well suited as a video conference screen without you having to buy a webcam separately. Thanks to WQHD resolution, you no longer have to worry about blurred letters or lines.
The official Microsoft Teams certification also underlines the unique suitability for video conferences. There is a bar at the bottom edge of the screen that you can use to control and operate ad hoc special functions of the Teams conference software.
The Dell shows itself from the most modern side regarding connections: With one HDMI, DisplayPort and USB-C each, you have all modern links at your disposal. Thanks to the USB-C interface, you can connect modern USB-C-enabled notebooks with just one cable and charge them simultaneously. This prevents cable clutter on and behind the desk. The DisplayPort output allows you to connect a second display with DisplayPort input via a daisy chain, which also saves a lot of space in this case. Four times USB-A for peripherals should not be missing and complete ergonomics.
The curved design, which makes sense for 34 inches and through which the IPS panel is slightly curved, crowns the good equipment. The curved design, which makes sense for 34 inches and through which the IPS panel is slightly curved, crowns the excellent equipment.
Why set up a workstation with two monitors when one large monitor will do? Philips has a suitable device ready if you can make friends with this idea. The 34-inch model relies on an expanded QHD resolution, which enables the accommodation of many program windows simultaneously and ensures a crisp picture impression despite the enormous diagonal.
A webcam on the top for video conferencing or logging in via face recognition. This can also be folded away if you don’t need it. The slight curvature is more to be understood as a design trick because there is no noticeable practical benefit with this small form. The integrated HDR functionality also has a homeopathic effect:
