HP introduced its more mainstream E344c Curved Monitor.

Having launched a variety of curved ultrawide displays for gamers in the recent years, HP is rolling out similar monitors for business and professional users from many industries who want to boost their productivity. This week along with its flagship S430c curved LCD, HP introduced its more mainstream E344c Curved Monitor, which brings numerous contemporary features to the table and is aimed at a much broader commercial audience.

Offering a 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio, the HP E344c Curved Monitor relies on a 34-inch SVA panel with a 3440×1440 resolution, 300 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 16 ms GtG response time, a 60 Hz refresh rate, and 178°/178° viewing angles. HP has designed this price-friendly monitor as a day-to-day work horse, so there is no factory calibration to speak of or support for wide color gamuts; in fact the company doesn’t even officially disclose the monitor’s sRGB gamut coverage. In which case, it’s not unreasonable to guess that it may not cover 99% of it like some other models.

When it comes to connectivity, the E344c Curved Monitor resembles contemporary displays designed for professionals, offering one DisplayPort 1.2 input, one HDMI 2.0 port, and one USB Type-C input (DP alt mode). The LCD also has a dual-port USB 3.0 hub that is fed by a USB Type-B upstream port.

Since we are dealing with a display designed purely for work, HP did not equip it with speakers or even a headphone output. For those who do not want to use an external speaker system, HP proposes to get its S101 Sound Bar that attaches to the bottom of the monitor and uses a USB Type-A connector.

As far as ergonomics is concerned, like many other displays for office/home office environments, the HP E344c features a stand that can adjust height and tilt.
