Fast Talk (HP S430c)

The new HP S430c screen, is a very massive 43-inch screen,

has a curved panel designed to comfortably replace the dual-screen setup, but is too bulky to exaggerate.

And through it, you can have three screens that are controlled via one keyboard,

and it is also characterized by support for file sharing by drag and drop across these devices.

The HP S430c screen contains a number of features that make it distinct compared to many screens in the market,

for example, it has dual USB-C inputs, and there is also support for Windows Hello face recognition and HP’s Device Bridge,

which allows controlling two computers via One keyboard.

But despite these advantages, image quality and pricing are not the best thing.

The HP S430c Monitor comes in at £ 958 in the UK and $ 999 in it,

it’s not exactly cheap, but for a screen with this scale and feature set it is very good value.

HP S430c Design and Display

The HP S430c is a very smart screen for the features it contains, but it is quite expensive.

The screen has a massive 43-inch curved panel, with an aspect ratio of 32:10, which results in an overly large screen.

But the overall design is very elegant and made of high quality materials and the build quality is extremely robust.

The panel has a resolution of 3840 x 1200 pixels, which is considered relatively modest and translates to a pixel pitch of only 92dpi.

It has a VA panel type which is a traditional SDR screen instead of HDR screen,

with a peak brightness of 350 nits and a constant contrast of 3000 to 1, and it is very impressive.

As for the color coverage in the HP S430c screen, it provides you with only 99 percent coverage of the sRGB area that is somewhat indulgent,

as for the coverage of the more demanding ranges such as the DCI-P3 will be less than excellent.

But the ultra-wide panel lets you run multiple app windows in parallel,

and there’s a 1080p pop-up webcam on the top frame that supports Windows Hello facial recognition.

A lot of Port with no Speaker

As for the presence of the ports, you can get an HDMI and Displayport connection,

and there are dual USB-C interfaces, both of which support video input and device charging,

and you can also connect a single cable to power the screen and charge the laptop, that’s really cool.

The advantage of the dual ports is that you can connect two laptop computers and charge them together, and the maximum charge of 65W will be shared across both devices.

The screen has the HP Device Bridge program, which allows you to use a single keyboard and mouse with both devices, and this program supports Windows 10,

Mac OS and Android 10 devices, and you can also drag and drop files from one device to another.

In terms of sound, the HP S430c screen does not contain any speakers, but an optional speaker is available,

and this is somewhat something considering the high price that you will pay for it.

HP S430c Performance: Devic Bridge

Surely with the high price of the HP S430c monitor you will be waiting for impressive

and impressive performance, and how many application windows can comfortably handle it.

The answer is that on the S430c you can get up to four. However,

as the relatively low DPI means the three windows side by side is a more realistic limit.

The HP S430c has a very nice curved panel in the context of throughput, the 1800R means it’s not likely to be at fault.

There’s also just enough curve to keep you from feeling the edges of the panel from feeling too skewed,

but not so much that the windows look distorted. It is a nice settlement.

Unfortunately, in terms of image quality, it is not as impressive as we expected,

as the original color balance does not immediately inspire confidence and the panel lacks a general hole.

The OSD menu presets also explicitly exclude common color spaces such as sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3.

The screen has a medium quality VA panel with good color, decent contrast and modest pixel response

The HP S430cHP has a Devic Bridge and you will need to install the software on all connected devices, and we have not had any problems operating Windows laptops.

With the screen there are installation instructions and procedures,

which are very difficult even using the manual, but in fact, they are easy to use once installed.

To switch from one device to another, you can use the mouse directly across the screen, and you can also select files and drag and drop them from one device to another using the mouse.

You can also use either a mouse and keyboard connected to one of the USB-A ports on the S430c

Connectivity is where you really record this screen, just by connecting two laptops via the USB-C ports, will the S430c automatically switch to picture-by-picture mode.

Conclusion

The HP S430c screen is considered average in performance, and that is through testing some measures of image quality,

where we found the degree of rough pixels, the 43-inch curved VA panel is of medium quality only for color accuracy and responsiveness.

Ultimately, however, this monitor can be said to be extremely smart.

The HP S430c has excellent connectivity, support for Windows Hello,

and a nifty HP Device Bridge that uniquely improves upon the usual KVM switching functions.
