Along with their new Elite Dragonfly notebook, today HP is also rolling out its first ultra-wide curved display, which is being aimed at replacing dual-display setups used by business customers. The S430c Curved Ultrawide Monitor boasts a sizable 43.4-inch diagonal size, which is laid out in a 32:10 aspect ratio with an ultra-wide 4K resolution. Meanwhile, with its roots firmly in the business side of HP’s lineup, the company is also outfitting the monitor with a bevy of business-focused features, such as docking capabilities and a pop-up webcam with IR sensors.
Internally, the HP S430c curved ultrawide monitor uses a 43.4-inch VA panel, which offers a 3840×1200 resolution framed in an 1800R curve. The monitor offers a max brightness of 350 nits, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, a 5 ms GtG response time, 178º/178º vertical/horizontal viewing angles, a 60 Hz refresh rate, and to top things off, the screen has an antiglare coating. Seeing as this isn’t a video-focused monitor, HP is sticking just covering the sRGB color gamut (99%), which is the primary color space used by office and productivity applications.
Moving on, for connectivity the display has a DisplayPort 1.2 input, a HDMI 2.0 port, and two USB Type-C (DP alt-mode) inputs, allowing the monitor to be connected to virtually any PC. Both USB-C ports can deliver up to 85 W of power to their host laptops (with a total limit of 100W), meaning the monitor can charge even higher-performance 15.6-inch machines. Those USB-C ports also feed the monitor’s built-in USB hub, giving the monitor four downstream USB Type-A ports.
Meanwhile for extra features, the S430c includes a pop-up Full HD webcam with IR sensors for Windows Hello, as well as two microphones. The display also supports HP’s Device Bridge technology, which allows the user to control two PCs at the same time on a split screen without a dedicated KVM.
Like other monitors for professionals, the HP S430c comes with a stand that can adjust height and tilt. Meanwhile, HP will also offer a VESA mount adapter for those who need it.
Sales of the HP S430c Curved Ultrawide Monitor will start on November 9. The monitor will retail for $999.
