[PConlinereview] 21:9 display with fish screen has been on the market for many years, and this efficient office artifact and game physics plug-in has won a place in the market where 16:9 display is the mainstream. At first, restricted by the high price, the display with fish screen did not sell much. Now, the prices of some entry-level fish screens have fallen to just over a thousand yuan. There must be a trade-off under the low price, so let's take a look at it through HKC C299Q today.

The HKC C299Q is a 21:9 display that supports DCI-P3 display, Freesync and other technologies to display higher quality pictures. The 29-inch VA panel has a resolution of 2560 to 1080, a maximum refresh rate of 75Hz and a large R1500 curvature. The appearance is biased towards e-sports style, narrow bezel design to make the screen share higher. Multi-functional bracket, beautiful atmosphere, support more use scenes. Next, let's take a look at the details.

First of all, let's take a look at the back of the HKC C299Q. The black plastic backplane looks calm and simple. There are not many design elements, but those designs break the dullness of black.

First of all, the bracket column, marked with the word "BE YOURSELF" in white font, is full of philosophical enlightenment and intriguing slogan,. The sturdy column is also different from the entry-level fish screen, which can achieve more functions.

The top of the bracket column uses laser texture to enhance the texture. Connected with the screen, the use of quick disassembly design, disc docking can be firmly installed, can be disassembled and installed with one button, convenient and fast. At the same time, the wall mount interface of VESA 100mm 100 specification is built in, which is convenient to expand the use scene.

The base of the bracket is in a three-pronged shape, which is stable and beautiful. Set aside wire holes to facilitate line adjustment and keep the desktop clean and tidy.

The HKC C299Q bracket is rich in functions and can be adjusted with high degrees of freedom. It supports pitch angle adjustment, height adjustment and 90 °horizontal and vertical adjustment to the screen respectively. As for the horizontal adjustment of the screen, it depends on the hand.

There is a row of vents at the upper end of the backplane, making the black panel more than monotonous and dull. At the connection between the screen and the bracket, a bright blue ring is designed. In the case of light, the ring looks very bright, and if it is not plugged in, it would be thought to be a LED module.

On the left edge of the back, there is a sign-up design. The above is a bright silver picture and text: the English trademark of HKC and the brand of "LOVE WHAT YOUR LOVE" slogan, similar to tide brand clothes are highlighted, giving the display a more refined sense.

In terms of interfaces, DP, HDMI, VGA and 3.5mm interfaces each have a comprehensive coverage to meet the connection needs of new and old equipment.

There are five OSD buttons at the bottom of the screen, together with the functional logo of the OSD button on the front lower border, it can achieve a more intuitive and accurate control experience. The OSD menu integrates PIP (Picture in Picture), PBP (double screen display) and other efficient application functions to help entertainment and office work.

The lower frame is wider than the other three sides, and it is narrow enough to compare horizontally with other products. The LOGO, display identity that centers the identification of "HKC".

The width of the border and black edge is not extremely narrow, but the narrow bezel design still allows the screen share of the HKC C299Q to reach 93%, combined with the curvature of the screen R1500 to create a surround, immersive visual impact for users.

So, what about the specific display and application experience?

The bright screen shows that the VA screen with a visual angle of 178 °looks from the side, the picture is still clear and transparent, the overall brightness is relatively uniform, and the color displayed is more vivid and accurate. Generally speaking, the display of the picture is remarkable.

21:9 ultra-wide ratio, the convenience is that you can open more windows. Code words while comparing materials, online shopping can also be more intuitive goods comparison, a sense of happiness.

It is more efficient for cutting films, with a longer version of the time track, more material money display, and a larger preview area. The fish screen is the slicing artifact.

  It is true that individuals have improved a lot in dealing with the details of the game operation since LOL disabled the plug-in's view zoom function, but the field of view zoom is helpful in the game confrontation. When using the 21:9 monitor to present the picture of the game, the lengthened width on the left and right sides is more in line with the real field of vision of the human eye. (About 30% more field of view than the 16:9 monitor). You can test it: when you stare at the middle part of the screen, both sides of the screen will naturally disappear, but they will remain in your field of vision, so there is no doubt that the immersion of the screen has been further improved. The extra field of vision allows you to find the enemy earlier, and it is easier to defend against GANK, which can be called hardware open hang. Of course, there are many games that have been adapted to the 21:9 monitor to bring a different gaming experience.

After saying some subjective feelings, then use the test to give the specific performance of the screen quality.

First of all, the color gamut coverage, the measured HKC C299Q can cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut, while covering 86% of the AdobeRGB color gamut, the performance of high color gamut coverage has been very excellent.

The hue response test results show that there is a certain deviation between the black test curve and the blue "luminosity 2.2" curve, and the gray-scale color temperature fluctuates greatly, so the performance is good.

Color temperature stability test, the white point color temperature fluctuation range between 6800K-7400K, different brightness color temperature stability is general, the screen shows that the brighter the color, the cooler.

Tested at 100% brightness, the color uniformity is shown in the picture. The upper left character temperature is closest to the standard value of 6500K, and the maximum deviation value of 4.5 appears in the lower right corner, which is not bad.

Under 100% luminance, the luminance uniformity is good. The maximum brightness is 130cd/ ", and the overall maximum difference is 11%. The overall brightness is low, and the brightness difference is generally not easy to detect.

When tested at 50% brightness, the performance of color uniformity has been improved. Similarly, the upper left character temperature is closest to the standard value of 6500K, and the maximum deviation value is reduced to 2.5.

However, when tested at 50% luminance, the luminance uniformity is not better. The maximum difference widened to 13%, and the performance was not bad.

Finally, the average E value of the 48 colors tested was 2.39, with the maximum difference of 4.52 and the minimum of 0.69. However, as far as the use of entertainment is concerned, it will not have much impact.

Generally speaking, the screen quality of HKC C299Q is high cost-effective products for general audio-visual entertainment.

  The design of HKC C299Q belongs to the mix of e-sports and literary style. Users of different uses can find their favorite designs on the fuselage.
