    Bought this from PB Tech's Black Friday sale. It's very impressive and overwhelming (in a good way).
    Looks amazing on the desk.
    It is quite heavy, so make sure your desk can support it without stress.

    For gaming it is absolutely amazing, especially shooters. Just make sure you have a good video card that can support the resolution while maintaining a high fps. My 1080 struggles in some games to keep a decent fps so I find i don't use the entire width of the monitor in some games.
    The vertical resolution is 1080px, there are new ultrawide monitors this size coming out with higher vertical res, but honestly there is no point if you are using for gaming. No card is going to hit 144fps with a res that high on any decent games at this point anyway.

    If i was forced for any downsides, it seems every once in 50 times or so I turn on the colours become completely messed up, though turning it off and on fixes it instantly.

    I could never go back to small monitors at home after using this.

    Power issues with the monitor. The monitor seems to have PCB problems. Once the monitor is switched off, it will not come back on unless it is unplugged and re-plugged into the mains.

    Born for gaming, the monitor Samsung CHG90 turned out to be a perfect partner for my professional video editing jobs. All 49 inches of the ultra-wide screen have superbly replaced the two side-by-side monitors that I used up to a few weeks ago, being appreciated both for the very modern design and for the very accurate finishes that make it a subject of pleasant discussion with whoever enters in my studies. Remaining in the aesthetic, the monitor takes up very little space in its rear, where there is also a comfortable housing for headphones that I often use and that is now irreplaceable. The curved 1800R panel surrounds the eye and offers a truly immersive experience, comparable to a cinema experience, especially with a high definition video. The same curvature and the ability to split the screen in different autonomous areas in all simplicity has proved exceptional at least on two different occasions: when I play but I need to follow a tutorial, maybe on YouTube, I could do without bothering another device. the 144 Hz refresh time and the 1ms response time were the parameters that I took most into consideration when testing this monitor with my game console and I must say that this CHG90 has brilliantly overcome every challenge with different titles and in different conditions. He also passed specific stress tests that I managed to invent for the occasion. Speaking as a professional, I particularly appreciated those that Samsung has described as New Metal Quantum Dot, which ensures a more faithful color rendering of colors, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) with which the definition of details and black color really becomes a other level. Never had such an immersive and engaging gaming experience. In light of my more than positive experience, I also recommend not only to fans of videogames of the latest generation, but also to fans of high-definition movies and all colleagues who work with video as professionals.

    I received the monitor quickly and I immediately put it down to work :). I'm a big fan of videogames having both the PS4 and the Wii and I must say that the results are amazing. I've always used monitors a bit 'cheaper and the difference is all there. I immersed myself with headphones and I immediately experienced the experience of several games, especially those of war. I felt great emotions, I seemed to be present in the game, never tried such a thing. Spectacular images, really. Then I moved to video editing programs of various houses and even there I was very impressed, certainly this product is also suitable for those who do this by profession and I'm not surprised that they use just that. Thanks to its unique features such as the 144 Hz Refresh Rate, the Ultrawide 32: 9 HDR format and the 1 ms response time you are totally immersed in the game character that looks all real! I did not imagine you could get that far! Finally, thanks to the Bending Radius at 1800R I have the field of view completely immersed in the game and not affected by external factors, very great! Too bad that it is not 4K, it would have been the top, but that's all right. These are the main features • Size: 49 '' • Resolution: 3840x1080 • Update rate: 144Hz 144Hz monitors can process up to 144 frames per second. This is a figure much higher than for example at 60fps, which ensure a higher fluidity of the images The resolution 3,840 × 1,080 pixels is not Ultra HD (4096 x 2160) but in the performance of the games there are no differences!

    The CHG90 is a 49" super ultra-wide (32:9) curved monitor that is marketed for gamers. This is mainly due to the fact is has HDR, fast response time, 144Hz refresh rate, AMD Freesync 2 support and it's curved super ultrawide format creates an immersive gaming experience - and all this does make it a truly great gaming monitor, believe me. However, please do not let the gaming moniker put you off if you don't class yourself as a gamer. I found that the monitor lends itself perfectly to productivity. The sheer size at a 32:9 aspect ratio means that it can support multiple windows in a way that a multiple monitor set up cannot. With a multiple monitor setup you are restricted by the physical limitations of the monitor edges - you can't work a spreadsheet across the edge of two side by side monitors. This monitor gives you the freedom on placing windows wherever you want, without restriction. Before purchasing you should however be aware of two things - 1. make sure you have enough space as this thing is massive 2. the 3840 X 1080 resolution may not suit everyone, particularly those used to a higher vertical resolution. If you are aware of these two specifications and they fit with your requirements then I am sure that this will probably be the best monitor you will ever use.

    Disastrous Samsung assistance, that's how I have to start, the product arrived faulty and I immediately contacted The Insiders to report the problem.

    They got busy right away, but Samsung never made itself heard, and I'm hostage of your "assistance", they say they want to change the monitor but after a month still nothing, and now I can not even make the product in the finished campaign, moral of the story for now I'm with a monitor not usable and non-returnable.

    The product itself has good quality, 144 Hz of frequency, a radius of 1.8 and a 49 inches from 32: 9, a good HDR and 1 ms response, all beautiful features that make it a noteworthy monitor, but a product it is as good as its weakest component, in this case the assistance (especially if you use it for work!).

    How to gisutificare a price like that if then you can not be calm in case of problems?

    But let's go to the monitor, because it's right that you talk about him, what interested me was to understand if after the WOW effect of the size, it would be a monitor that I wanted to keep, I often work with Affinity (Designer and Photo) some videos editor, but above all games.

    The resolution with 3840 x 1080 pixels in height is very claustrophobic given the size in width, you see a lot in peripheral vision, but has stuck in height on many games (first shooter where it is important to see the sides but also up and down).

    The images are fluid and the colors are good for gaming, and the monitor offers a dive never had before, playing is really a pleasure and with a resolution that is qualitatively sufficient.

    Better on car or airplane games, where peripheral vision is more important, and as a positive note the 3840x 1080s do not require the latest generation of video cards to enjoy the monitor, so it's a 50-50

    Different speech for the job, the colors are less precise as regards the professional side, they are not bad, but it must be considered that these figures can be bought a much better monitor (or rather 2). To be considered in addition to if the panel breaks down completely lose the ability to use the computer in production, so even in this case 2 monitor is "better than uan".

    Many I / O ports and the excellent ability to "split" the monitor and use it with different inputs simultaneously make this monitor great for those who want to do everything with one or only screen,

    Perhaps the only use for which I see him lending over gaming is in the video production, where it may be useful to have a long timeline and still see the preview video at 1080.

    Of course, I had a bad experience, but despite this I recommend the monitor but ONLY if you use it exclusively for gaming (and check that the games you want to use support the 32: 9), the few stars are for non-existent assistance !

    Samsung CHG90 is a 49-inch Quantum Dot monitor with HDR, 144Hz refresh rate, FreeSync 2 and Ultrawide 32: 9 format. Already the packaging gives a feeling of quality and the instructions allow you to easily mount (weight permitting) this monster. With a 49 "screen and a deep 1800R curvature, this display fills the visual field in an enveloping way. It's so wide that it's impossible to look at the whole screen without taking a few steps back. The QLED Vertical Alignment panel is fantastic. Color reproduction is excellent and with High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible games it is difficult not to dive into all those pixels. The design of the CHG90 is sober, with a plastic ring screwed to the support that lights up in blue. The frames are super thin with a slightly larger bottom edge where we find the Samsung logo in relief. This monitor also offers the possibility of covering the cables with the back of the support. I / O ports are easily accessible from the back of the monitor. There are two USB ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports (which through settings can become HDMI 1.4 ports), a DisplayPort and a Mini DisplayPort necessary to obtain the maximum frequency of 144Hz. There is also a 3.5 mm audio socket. Samsung has placed a joystick and three buttons below the bottom edge to access the menu that offers a nice range of adjustments, including game presets and a sRGB mode. Individual settings for brightness, contrast and colors are also available. The CHG90 boasts a 3000: 1 contrast ratio that offers excellent, deep black levels. The dark and light tones are perfect and the shades of white are visible even in the brightest backgrounds. Samsung claims that the CHG90 has a response time of 1ms, and with regard to the easiest transitions (gray to gray tones), it's definitely true. The CHG90 is extremely fast in all transitions even if in darker ones the response time is up to about 5-10 ms. The Samsung CHG90 offers software called EasySettingBox that allows you to configure multitasking on the CHG90 monitor with ease. In full screen, productivity apps are really something exceptional. Used with Xbox OneS, games running at 21: 9 resolution, for example FIFA2018, work well, despite the black bars on the sides of the screen, in fact playing on this huge ultra-wide monitor is truly breathtaking.

    Excellent gaming monitor and multitasking
    Samsung's CHG90 monitor arrived in a large package, packed perfectly. As soon as I opened the packaging I immediately noticed the instructions printed on the same that indicated how to assemble the support to the monitor, without going to ruin the parts. Samsung, for this Ultrawide 49 "monitor, has adopted a 32: 9 format that allows you to view in their entirety the game scenes, just as they were designed by the developers.In addition, the 1800R curved panel surrounds the player allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the The resolution of the screen is 3840 × 1080 pixels, results a bit 'as they are visible.This "flaw" is negligible thanks to the 144hz refresh rate that ensures a very smooth playability even during very fast game or video scenes This parameter, thanks to the FreeSync 2 technology of AMD, will adapt according to the number of frames available.The refresh rate can however be adjusted to suit your needs by setting it to 60 Hz / 120 Hz. The CHG90 adopts the Quantum Dot technology that offers more realistic colors, with intense blacks and incredibly vivid whites.The panel is a VA capable of reproducing content that supports HDR technology returning images with a wider range of brightness levels. The static contrast is 3000: 1 with a response time of 1ms which, given the type of monitor, is an exceptional result. As for the aesthetics, the monitor is finely treated: around the hook for the pedestal there is a large circular blue LED. The pedestal has a removable hook at the top to store the headphones and inside it can pass the cables of the devices. The frame is in satin-finished aluminum, very elegant result. Ultimately the CHG90 monitor I really liked because it allows a complete immersion in the game, the playability itself is fluid and the colors are vivid and full. Unfortunately for the game console that I own (PS4) it is not possible to have an optimal resolution because the 32: 9 is not supported. For this reason I could not live the full potential of the monitor. One thing that can be "uncomfortable" is the footprint or the pedestal, which protrudes beyond the monitor. I absolutely recommend the CHG90 monitor to gaming lovers (who can take advantage of the resolution 32: 9) and to those who, for work or for pleasure, use the PC in multitasking mode.

    Panoramic monitor exceptional but not for everyone

    After almost a month of testing I can write a small review on this monitor.

    The assembly was very easy, well illustrated and explained by the attached manual.
    The weight during assembly is felt, remember that we are talking about 20 kg of monitor that plants well stable on a single vertical column that also acts as a cable pass.

    When mounted, the monitor allows a good hike even in height, ideal for those who, like me, have a desk that is not strictly working.

    On the column with a click of the finger comes a small pin headrest, a sign of a higher quality but clashes with the practicality, in fact with a monitor so wide and low is not easily accessible.

    When the monitor is turned on, one is struck by the excellent color rendering of the panel. Even the internal menu allows the most varied color combinations that always maintain excellent visual quality.

    The monitor also has the HDR function that I could exploit on W10 with a high-end video card that supported it.

    Also in that case I found a further surprise for the color rendering and for the visual quality.

    Turning to the functions that make it worthy of the name gaming, ie the 144HZ and 1ms refresh functions, the panel always behaves in an excellent way, in all situations.
    The feeling of fluidity is decisive and never irregular, it helps the video card in the most chaotic phases in which the framerate drops even 40fps while continuing to give a feeling of incredible fluidity.
    I recommend it to all users with high-end and high-end cards, however, because its resolution of 3840 * 1080 begins to be binding for the performance to be maintained.

    I also used the monitor for work, its size facilitates the functions of multitasking, although I would have expected a specific software from Samsung for the management of windows in order to sort and support them on the screen.

    The 1800R curvature allows (after a bit of habit) to enjoy a better perspective and feel at the center of the action.

    To conclude, my experience with the Samsung CHG90 monitor was quite positive.

    But I recommend it to a certain niche of people who meet these requirements:
    - Availability of investing a good budget on a monitor that is definitely above average
    - Monitor to be coupled with machines of a certain power

    Thank you for reading my experience

    Let's start from the beginning, the editing was very simple and intuitive. I have tested this monitor for a long time, tested for gaming and I must say that it works well enough, the images are of excellent quality and the 1ms Refresh Rate actually noticeable, especially in the FPS, where, thanks to the Ultrawide 32: 9 format the increased visual field helps a lot to have a greater knowledge of the space. Before owning it I thought it was inconvenient to have a monitor with this curvature at 1800R while now I can say that I feel very comfortable! It has a good clear view at any angle. The 144Hz Refresh Rate makes the images really fluid, a nice head above the monitor that I used before this. The HDR has an optimal yield! The difference is felt, because the light is always handled really well, never the whites are "burned", even in cases of extreme darkness, which is not to be underestimated. Used instead to work, especially for video editing, I did not find it more comfortable than a classic dual monitor, it's true, you have plenty of space for the storyboard etc. .. but probably not for me as a setup! Ditto for video editing programs, such as Photoshop etc ... which become a bit 'more inconvenient to use as they often need vertical space as well as horizontally. Inputs are as follows: DISPLAY PORT, HDMI, MINIDP and USB 3.0, so you will surely find a method to connect it comfortably to your computer. The monitor itself really takes up a lot of space on the desk, so you have to have a fairly hail, otherwise you find yourself using the monitor too close and not the best. To conclude: I think this is the perfect monitor for those who love 360 ​​° videogaming and those who demand the maximum! If you play videogames on a computer, the latter must be very powerful and with video cards and processors of the latest generation, otherwise maybe it becomes a useless expense. So I recommend this monitor to the big game of videogames who want to have an accattivamente and functional setup! It costs a lot but actually everyone is worth it!

    As can be expected from a product of this category, the construction quality, the materials, are of excellent construction. Once the simple assembly procedure of its stand is finished, you immediately realize the stability of the monitor. You immediately realize also the considerable dimensions, its pedestal will take away a lot of space on the desk, look to be taken into account, solvable however using alternative supports, fortunately there is support for mounting VESA! Now we come to the technical part, the monitor has some very respectable features, with its 144hz and 1ms of response, in gaming, even with the most frenetic titles I tested, in all circumstances can reproduce perfect images without Tearing , annoying artifact that can be noticed with monitors not suitable for video games with many "movements" The aspect ratio of 32: 9 is something impressive, in many driving games tested by me is even very easy to exploit, with graphical interface that climbs into correctly, customizable according to your preferences, while maintaining all the FOV that this format is able to guarantee. Unfortunately, however, this great prestige could also become its "defect" on some games in particular, not optimized or not suitable for different formats compared to 16: 9 on which they have been designed. Obviously I play almost only at DCS World, a title that just gives me some problems too much in managing this format. For a monitor of these proportions, the characteristic of being curved is certainly a fundamental requirement, its curving radius of 1800R allows you to enjoy perfect images up to the last millimeter of screen from a distance of about 70cm. If you place yourself closer, you will lose "definition" of the last 3 millimeters lateral. Obviously in game as a peripheral vision you will not notice anything, but it could become annoying with windows and icons placed near the edges if you are too close to the screen. Who do I recommend this monitor? Surely fans of RacingSim for a driving position, going to replace three-screen setup. Professionals who already use two FullHD monitors. Not suitable for those who come from monitors with resolutions higher than FullHD, already only coming from 2k you will notice the "lack" of the vertical 360px.

    There are many things this monitor does well. Very well in fact. The sheer width of the screen gives a lot of real-estate in which to load up various apps at the same time. It also means that for games that support the aspect ratio, the immersion is off the charts. The high refresh rate and response rates mean that in twitch shooters and games where speedy reflexes and fast movements are beneficial, this monitor gives you an edge.

    For photo editing, the colour reproduction is well calibrated. It's also really nice to see your photos and colour gradients without any trace of banding or visible dithering. It's really nice for watching movies too, as the black levels are both very deep and detailed. Thankfully, the on screen options are easy to use.

    My favourite use case for this monitor is the split screen. I can have my PC plugged in via DP on the left half, and my laptop plugged in via miniDP on the right half, and run software on both that checks the right/left edge of the split screen for the mouse crossing it. This allows me to use one mouse/keyboard and move between operating systems seamlessly.

    There are, however, many things it does not do well. Whilst the width is mindblowing, the flip side of this monitor is it's vertical resolution. At just 1080 pixels bottom to top, the physical height means those pixels are stretched quite large. How large? Approx 0.3mm. The pixels are clearly visible. This means when writing/reading text, if you are in any way used to 'retina' quality display, you will find the difference to be distracting. Letters become jagged, the softening patterns that OSX and Windows apply are visible and sometimes make words look lumpy. When reading articles online or doing some coding, it becomes a fairly disappointing experience.

    Another issue I had with this monitor (and to be fair, this will be rectified by using the included wall mount), is that when on it's highest stand height, the bottom of the monitor is a good 3 inches lower than the top of my 15" laptop. What this means in practice is that if you want to use both your laptop screen and the monitor, you'll have a large chunk of the monitor's screen obscured by said laptop. Also, the placement of the USB3 hub ports are behind the plastic cable cover and not easily 'hot-swappable'. Again, easily rectifiable by running a hub off the hidden monitor ports, but at that point, why not just run a hub off your computer?

    This is a very good monitor. It's just not perfect: 7/10

    UNBOXING The box that contains the monitor is large enough and inside the monitor we find the pedestal, the support arm, other accessories, and the kit of 4 cables: HDMI, Displayport, USB C and micro HDMI, in addition to obvious power cord. A very respectable endowment and certainly not common. The assembly system is not simple, even for the dimensions, but with the instructions everything is simplified. COM'È The design is definitely clean and futuristic, the format is out of the norm, a nice 32: 9, which for how much it can initially overturn the user experience a little, once made the habit is beautiful and functional at the sight. In the back there is space for a circular led, which gives a nice touch gaming during the gaming sessions, although not very strong as light; however, it can in any case be switched off by the OSD. HOW IT You are a player, that you like to edit video and photos or even just workers, is the monitor for you • Player The super ultrawide of 32: 9 gives a very wide viewing angle, not to be underestimated in simulation games or in FPS. Magnify the fluidity with the high refresh at 144 Hz and the absence of wake effects for the response time of only 1 ms! Once tested, it will be difficult to go back on a panel of lower specifications. • Video / photo editing It is really good for editing video or photos. The colors are almost always faithful and very comfortable HDR in the videos. The great video previews are really comfortable! Great for 360 ° videos / photos! • Professional It gives the enormous advantage of being very large and therefore it is like simulating two monitors in one to be able to work in parallel on two rows, whatever they are. The radius of curvature R1800 is a really guessed choice, every corner is the right one, excellent comfort for the eyes, as well as a total immersion in the image. The OSD is very gaming and with many settings available, perhaps even too many. Very clever solution is that of the three buttons at the bottom of the monitor, which allow you to quickly access up to three settings pre-saved by the user. CONCLUSIONS If it is the object of your desire, well be prepared to make a lot of space on your desk, you will need it! But every effort, economic and physical, will be repaid!

    When you haven't seen the monitor on display only seeing pictures of it online. When the monitor is delivered you will gasp at the size of the box, it is HUGE. Having a 19" LCD monitor for over 10 years and been used to the screen size and screen res. The upgrade to the Samsung CHG90 is WOW, what have i been missing out on. Apart from upgrading the monitor i will now have to upgrade my desk, the monitor is that wide it just about fits on my desk. The brightness from the screen the crisp colour, the whites are white the blacks are black I'm not a big game player but the games that i have played with this monitor, word cannot say anything it will blow your mind. Playing the game with the super wide screen you can see so much more of the game without having to scroll around like i did with my old 19" monitor. As standard the monitor comes with a wall mountable bracket and a height adjustable start that also allows you to adjust the height of the monitor and swivel the monitor. The number of connection on the back of the monitor gives so much choice of connectivity. The monitor has the following. 2 HDMI 1 Display port 1 Mini Display port USB Hub 1 up 2 down Head Phone Socket Mic In & Out The monitor support Picture IN Picture mode allow you to display two sources at the same time. i use this with my 3D printer that has my Raspberry Pi connected via HDMI and my CCTV connected also via HDMI. This is now saving space not having another monitor in my study. To access the monitors menu there is a small button joystick on the bottom of the monitor, and is very simple to use to access the different settings. Next to the joystick there is 3 little buttons to set different game settings for me i leave it as standard as the way the monitor is set up is just right for me. Samsung’s Easy Box Software App is good in that you can snap the windows to different parts of the screen, the only bad point on this is that the app for me doesn't work with Google Chrome the web browser i currently use, i haven't tried other browsers. If your thinking about buying one then just buy it. and you will see for yourself.

    I give this monitor 5 stars because it accomplishes what it set out to do perfectly. But beware, you need to know what you're getting with this beast.

    The 1080 vertical resolution doesn't bother me at all. I can now comfortably put three windows side by side to do my work and that alone is worth the price of admission. Gaming wise this thing is fantastic. I have paired it with a Radeon Vega 64 and since it only has half the number of pixels a 4k monitor has, all games run beautifully. Freesync works from 48hz up to 144hz. I am finding most games can handle 3840x1080 rather well, and really recent games handle it perfectly. The view is so immersive, it's just fantastic.

    This monitor has a DPI of about 80. If you're like me and have been using high DPI monitors for the past few years, this is a pretty, er, striking regression. Yes, you can really see pixels easily on this thing. No, fonts don't look that great (fonts look a little better in Ubuntu than Windows, but regardless nowhere near the beauty a high DPI monitor would provide). To me this is the only real compromise you need to make with this monitor.

    The gaming and productivity gains I get far outweigh this setback for me. This monitor has no speakers at all. I have it mounted on my monitor arm with no problems. The monitor weighs 33lbs which many will find heavy. Getting it mounted was quite the chore and nearly led to my wife divorcing me, but we did it.

    I have to say overall I love it. I can fit everything I need comfortably onto the screen. No more switching desktops. It's been a great productivity and "staying in the zone" boost. My only complaint is how it changes sources, it's a bit tedious. My productivity, focus and happiness while working has increased so much with this monitor, and gaming is fantastic.

    I use Linux with a tiling window manager. To be honest when I'm in Windows or OSX then this monitor isn't quite as godly. The automatic tiling really helps squeeze out the full worth of this giant beast. I've had zero issues with it. No matter what machine, OS or whatever, it has worked 100% perfectly, it's simply stellar.

    Who is the CHG90 aimed at, Gamers who work from home occasionally or Desk bound workers who do a bit of gaming? My answer to that is Gamers who do some occasional work on the same screen. The immersion you can achieve with this screen is fantastic.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find loads of games supporting the super ultra wide format and when they did they looked glorious. When a game did not support the 32:9 ratio you could set the screen to 16:9 (black panels either side of a central image) and still play as you would on a normal screen. HDR looks great, I noticed it the most when playing Horizon Zero Dawn on the Playstation4. The bright lights from the robot animal’s eyes were really powerful and sunset scenes looked fantastic.

    Coming from a 27” 1440p screen to effectively dual 27” 1080p screens I did notice a reduction in sharpness. For gaming this wasn’t a huge concern as it wasn’t exceedingly noticeable and results in higher frame rates than trying to run dual 1440p screens. For office work this was noticeable, text isn’t super sharp. After mounting the screen on a VESA monitor arm, I was able to push the screen a bit further back which made it less noticeable.

    What is useful is being able to have 3 applications side by side, 34” 1440p screen are great for dual application with more vertical height but I personally find having 3 applications side by side with a little less vertical height is better for productivity. The monitor also supports Picture by Picture, you can configure it as 16:9|16:9 or 21:9|11:9 or 11:9|21:9. I found this useful as you could have the playstation4 on one side and pc on the other. One thing to bear in mind is the monitor defaults to 60hz in this setting. It was also useful to have my work Microsoft Surface on the 21:9 setting and my pc on the 11:9 as I could control Spotify for instance off my pc while working off the Surface on the majority of the screen.

    Would I recommend the screen? I think most people would be just find with a 34” ultra wide but if you want to have the glorious wrap around feeling and immersion of a Super Ultra Wide this monitor while gaming then this could be for you. I’m certainly enjoying using it.

    Coming from a dual monitor 1080p setup, I was quite excited to see if a single curved screen could fulfil all my computing needs – I regularly game, work from home (as an accountant) and produce music. Overall, I’ve had mixed feelings. The monitor certainly has the wow factor – it draws your eye, regardless of whatever else is in the room. For gaming, it’s great – the additional field of view feels as though it has made me better at games. Whether this is all in my mind, I can’t say, but I certainly enjoy the experience. I’m running a GTX970, and games look lovely and run silky smooth. One slight niggle with gaming – for ‘social’ gaming, I use a device to stream my games to the TV in the living room. Given my resolution is 3840 x 1080, this looked odd on a non-ultra-wide TV, so to game in the living room, I had to change the resolution on the PC, which killed the seamlessness I’m used to. For productivity, the monitor has been fine, after I was able to get used to using the windows ‘snap’ feature, rather than full screen on two separate monitors. I must say that I found the bundled software did not work for setting up ‘virtual’ monitors and so I am using a third-party software, which seems to give me the options I require. For music production, the ultrawide enabled me to do what I would normally do (stretch the software across two screens) but without a lot of the hassle and of course, the annoying bezel. One aspect of the monitor that I do not like is the inability to stream videos (YouTube, etc) in full screen. I appreciate that the videos aren’t optimised for ultra-wide but this really is a deal breaker for me – why would I spend so much money on a monitor to have a substandard experience. I know there are workarounds, but when I’m spending so much on a monitor, why should I need to compromise? On that point, I’m not sure that the monitor represents value for money – certainly my gaming is more enjoyable was better, but I’m not sure that the cost of the monitor is justified by the improvement in my gaming experience. Indeed, the monitor costs only a little less than my whole PC did (purchased a couple of years ago, but was high end at the time), and so I find myself asking if my gaming experience would have been better improved by upgrading some other component and merely opting for a more modest monitor upgrade.

    The Ultimate UltraWide Gaming Monitor
    This monitor is not an ordinary monitor, it is huge, ludicrous you could say! Why in the heck would you need a 49 inch super wide monitor!?!?!... I tell you why! Its fricken awesome! Up till now, I have always had 2 x 29" monitors, and I have loved that, and recently, I upgraded to a 4K and 2K monitor, and I really liked the 4K one and I did not think that I would like this monitor as it is only 3840x1080, but whta it lacks in resolution, it makes up for in being so wide it hurts! and I bloody love it. Playing games on this thing will blow you away. It supports brighter whites, darker blacks, the colour pops you in the eye, it runs up at 144hz and has freesync2! It also has three presents for different things, like movies, games and work After using this monitor for a week now, I am already planning a new office and desk, because my current one sits the monitor so close to my face, it feels like it is burning my retainers. This is due to the HUGE stand, but luckily, I can make one f the presets less bright for night time gaming. It has plenty of ports and even comes with a stack of cables to make sure you are getting the best signal possible. It even has a USB3 hub, so now my peripherals are plugged straight in to that. This monitor is huge, it takes up all of your desk, you will need a great GFX card to run it, you probably will need a welders mask to protect your eyes and you could buy a 2002 mini cooper for the same money..... but playing PUBG, DIRT4 or other games on this will fully immerse you in the game, sadly, it has not made me any better, but there is still time. If you can, buy this monitor, enjoy it and have the best monitor experience money can buy (almost)

    Where do I begin .. The CHG90 is a cinematic experience through and through .. an immersive gift to all escape seeking game-aholics and thrill seekers .. it often feels just like being at the movies from your own home (especially when I hook up a decent soundbar). Moving from a smaller Samsung ultra wide moitor initially the experience was very much the same .. my peripheral vision was already almost fully entertained gaming on such a monitor - although pretty much every other use I have for a monitor is taken care of - especially the sheer amount of real estate for working in multiple areas at once e.g. visual studio, a spreadsheet and watching a movie at the same time - FANTASTIC. You may also hook the monitor up to display output from a games console AND PC simultaneously, and be able to prioritise the amount of space allocated to each. For me personally this helps juggling a busy job at times and spending time with my 4 year old as he can sit on my lap playing games whilst I continue debugging a script or what have you. All in all this monitor is a major showpiece from Samsung and it is the greatest monitor overall I have ever had. If you are on the fence about getting it - my advice would be to get it and try it, several of my close friends and co-workers have already purchased this monitor off the back of looking and playing with mine. A true showpiece!

    I used the monitor both for work and for gaming and I highly recommend it for the second purpose. Not bad Easy setting box for window management. In short, when you install the monitor Samsung CHG90 everything is very large and the wow effect is definitely around the corner. The angle of curvature is immediately impactful and an almost surreal optical effect for those used to normal monitors. From the point of view of continuous use, the eyes thanks to the refresh rate from 144Hz seem to tire even less vision. Excellent also the feeling that transmits the 32: 9, especially with the games. Excellent colors and fantastic sharpness. Too bad I could not even test with my powerful notebook as the external monitors are managed by the integrated card and not fully appreciate the power of the monitor. Not very suitable according to my point of view for those who work a lot with Word and graphics program like Photoshop, because they require a lot of vertical use of the work screens.

    This monitor is absolutely superb, moving away from two twenty-eight-inch monitors has really increased my focus when completing tasks. This large display not only makes life easier when having multiple windows open, but I am no longer having to look between two screens with a bezel in-between. The range of inputs is fantastic and being able to not only swivel the monitor you are able to lower/raise it. The graphics that are displayed are fantastic having cross compared them to my last set but with the aspect ratio given with this monitor, makes my playing of ‘real-time-strategy’ games even more intense as you are able to see more across a map. Samsung’s ‘EasyBox’ software application makes it seamless when trying to place multiple windows across the screen in whichever formation that might be. This one monitor might be of a large size but it really makes me think why I did not purchase one of these before. I am really blown away with the design, colour reproduction and immersion into using this especially at night. The light on the back only makes this monitor even more desirable! For any gamer, pro gamer or power user, this would definitely be 100% be recommended and you will wonder how you functioned without it.

    I had never tried such a big monitor! I must say that I am satisfied .. but let's start from the beginning: Unboxing: The box is really big, the very well packaged ensures total protection of the disassembled display. once opened I started to recover pedestals cables and everything needed to assemble it. For a correct installation of the pedestal, I recommend leaving it in the box until the pedestal is installed with screws, which is also the same of Samsung TVs, nice and very nice! Once assembled, the whole aspect of the monitor is taken care of, with all the cables closed inside it. INPUT: The monitor is equipped with HDMI inputs, DISPLAY PORT classic, MINIDP and HUB USB 3.0 OSD: Very easy to use, just one command to move in myriad possible configurations and 3 preset keys to customize as you like. TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS: well, that is to say, 32/9 the panel with 1800R curvature and a 144hz refresh rate with 1 ms of response can be enjoyed much more with high performance graphics cards, with freesync 2 even better. The QLED panel technology is very performing. All characteristics much appreciated by hardcore players! In the back of the monitor we also have a LED crown to less strain the eyes. TEST: The first use I made is via DisplayPort with Macbook Pro Early 2013 unfortunately I can not fully appreciate the quality of the image because unfortunately is not supported, but having a desktop so 'wide is really very useful not to mention the ability to configure through appropriate software for PC, the various sections of the screen, and even have 2 Input Video different examples: PC and PS4 PRO. PS4: I used the monitor in HDR on ps4 pro and I must say that the performance is very nice, the 32/9 on the game shoots everything is exaggerated not to mention the car games that are very good. With the use of video editing programs the 32/9 really has an edge, you have a storyboard so long to lose your head. PC: With the latest video cards we can appreciate and maximize the performance of this wonderful monitor, with features that are unmatched. FINAL CONCLUSIONS: I'm happy to have tried this war machine, the gamers will be enthusiastic, it meets all the requirements requested by the most fussy with an eye for the design that this product brings with you Samsung.

    I use my PC for both work and gaming, and before buying the CHG90 I was running tow 27" monitors side by side. The CHG90 is infinitely better. As you unbox the monitor you are presented with instructions for attaching the stand while the monitor remains in the box, this makes it very straight forward to get the monitor out for one person and start setting things up. You should bear in mind this is a very large monitor, and as such I would recommend plugging any leads into the back before you get it into position or this can be a bit tricky! I got plugged in and everything worked straight away. the resolution is the same as two 27" monitors side by side, but the obvious difference is no bezel in the middle, allowing you to easily manage three windows side by side on your desktop. The included software makes moving windows around and getting them where you want them a breeze. The real test on a gaming monitor is of course playing games. The CHG90 doesn't disappoint here either. The curve of the monitor makes you feel completely immersed in gameplay, and of course all that extra screen makes it great for keeping tabs on what's going on around you. To sum up I would say that if you have the cash this is a fantastic buy, both for gaming, or just if you like to multi task in Windows.

    I was lucky enough to try out the beautiful 49-inch Samsung CHG90 monitor.
    The monitor is really powerful and remarkable, from the photos I viewed on the internet does not really make the idea.
    The monitor comes in a huge box with inside the monitor and all the related accessories:
    the beautiful piano stand along almost a meter, cables for HDMI, microHDMI and Display port,
    various screws and to close the universal bracket to mount it on an arm support.
    The monitor and all its accessories are well packaged and carefully closed.
    Mounting the monitor is really intuitive and easy to perform,
    once mounted and positioned on the floor of use is a second that the PC recognizes the mammoth panel.
    The resolution of the monitor is really huge and noticeable well 3840x1080,
    with a 32: 9 ratio in Ultrawide, it's like having multiple monitors next to each other,
    but without the annoying edges of conjunction.
    Samsung really did a great job implementing Metal Quantum Dot technology,
    which is a particular HDR technology that allows you to reproduce images with one
    wider range of light levels ensuring more accurate reds and greens.
    Thanks to its characteristics, the panel stands at 125% on the sRGB scale.
    The monitor also has one of the highest frequencies on the market today.
    guarantees a refresh of 144hz, with a latency of 1ms, really superb.
    To conclude the technical description, the panel has a radius of curvature of 1800R.
    The monitor is born for mere gaming needs, thanks to its features and
    supported by a powerful PC, it can reproduce faithfully and with a magnificent graphic rendering
    any type of video game enhancing and allowing the gamer a total immersion.
    After hours of play, I felt really immersed and captured with a realism never before experienced.
    The panel will allow you to be wrapped up and be surprised with an image quality
    superb and magnificent. In conclusion, the panel fully met all my expectations,
    ease of use, viewing and playback of images and contents
    amazing media, seeing and enjoying a good movie in HDR is really crazy.
    I recommend it to all those people and category of users who want a monitor from
    uncompromising gaming.

    For work I use 2 monitors of 24, so I was particularly interested in being able to take advantage of "two" monitors even at home (divided into 2). I must say that for a "professional" use I was pleasantly surprised, perhaps thanks to the high refresh rate (144hz) the eye tends to get tired less, and thanks to the easybox tool you can divide the screen by 49 '' in many ways (even in 3!). It should be remembered that the CHG90 is a gaming monitor and should be treated as such. Initially I made an attempt with the ps4 pro knowing that it does not support 1440p natively but only downscaled, the result (if you use all his thumbs) you get a very uncomfortable "strechata" image, out of pure curiosity I tried to use the PBP (picture by picuture) ps4-pc and I must say that the result is more than satisfactory (if you want with a ps4 pro you can also use it in 21: 9 / 4k and the image is perfect). Then I tried with a shooter on PC, enabling everything I could (the 4k were not fluid because of the not so recent graphics card): Probably for a FPS I do not see the great utility of a screen in 32: 9, even if the curvature 1800R from that feeling of immersivity that impresses enough and the response time of 1ms makes the gameplay optimal. Probably a racing game or third-person adventure would take advantage of the ultrawide. Tested in fact with Rise of the Tomb Raider you get something spectacular: all the screen used and the 1800R curves increase the immersion, if you then add the HDR stand out even more the setting. In both cases a high refresh rate from a sensation of fluidity really remarkable, to understand if there are or not artifacts that in the long run annoy, even if in the games does not create any discomfort. The response time of 1ms only serves to confirm the high quality of the product that will never give the sensation of "lag", as it happens in other monitors. Too bad the choice (in my case) of Freesync instead of Gsync. Personally I do not recommend if you play on console alone (seen with the PBP you can use 2 consoles on the same screen), if you have a TV quality, because the monitor format is not used properly (at least on ps4). Improved in my opinion the angle of vision: on the sides the colors begin to be diluted, leaving the backlight to be perceived, which thanks to the local dimming you do not notice if you are facing the screen.

    I bought the Samsung 49" CHG90 ultra-wide monitor to replace my dual monitor setup and I love it, this has a 32:9 curved screen and a resolution of 3840 x 1080.

    Pros
    • It has several advantages over dual monitors:
    ○ No central bar down the middle of the screen.
    ○ Only 1 monitor cable and 1 power cable.
    • The monitor also has USB ports so can be used to plug in your keyboard and mouse.
    • The ultra-wide curved screen feels more immersive when playing games.
    • A fast 144Hz refresh for games.

    Cons
    • This is a very wide screen, so make sure you have a large desk (my desk is 4' wide and 2' deep, which is fine)
    • The resolution is not 4k, although I find the resolution fine, especially for gaming.
    • The Samsung software for splitting the screen (Easy Setting Box) does not seem to be supported by all apps., it works well with Office, but I could not get web browsers to recognise the windows. So I ended up just using the built in Windows snap features.

    Overall, this is a great monitor and I wouldn't want to go back to dual screens, as one large screen offers more flexibility with window placement and is more immersive in games.

    Wow, wow, wow! The sheer enormity of this screen hits you when the box arrives on your doorstep, it's simply immense. As a tip I would recommend moving the box to the room in which the monitor will live and then proceed to unboxing it. Follow the unboxing instructions included on the box as this simplifies everything.

    I had it all setup in around 15-20 minutes (including cabling up) On the subject of cables, you get everything you could possibly want cable-wise included, however, getting to the connectors can be tricky when it's in situ so I would recommend inserting the cables whilst the monitor is still on it's front in the box. This also holds true for sorting out the excellent (but tight!) cable management built into the monitor.

    Time to fire it up... OK, initial disappointment as the resolution wasn't readily recognised .I have an Nvidia GTX1060 8GB card and although the Nvidia suite noted the correct resolution it clearly wasn't actually displaying at that resolution. So I headed to good old Windows display control, set the resolution there and voila! A M A Z I N G ! and that was just the desktop.

    Now time to put this beast through it's paces... Forza Horizon 4. Simply put, playing on this scale at a desk really does negate the need for VR. After playing for just a few minutes you really feel you are there! It just about engulfs your whole field of view.

    Time to take to the skies in XPlane 11. Again, just like being in the aircraft and a far superior jump up from a 3 screen setup. Just needed to play with the FOV (field of view) setting during a paused game to get the most realistic view of the cockpit. Couple these visuals with realistic flight controls and you could feel like you are flying literally anywhere!

    Finally time to shoot some bad guys... Gears of War 4. Big, immersive, edge of your seat action on an epic scale. I set all the games to the native resolution running everything in Ultra with no problems.

    Some people have commented that the 1080 vertical aspect is not as expected but to run anything higher, height wise, would exclude so many people, other than those with ultra high end PCs from utilising the screen. A wise decision on Samsung's part I think.

    To conclude then, If you're a gamer, video or photo editor or currently have 2+ screens to work on, give this monitor your attention. You won't be disappointed, the future is curved!

    In my opinion Samsung CHG90 is perfect device to enhance your PC/Gaming Experience. Now thanks to 49 inches screen I’m able to browse multiple websites at the same time, playing game and having a guide to it opened on the second half of the screen. The amount of new possibilities and combination with setting up your display is enormous. Also playing on full screen 3840x1080 is fantastic. Any racing,strategy or action adventure games which supports HDR looks stunning and immersive, which on first pirson shooter games thanks to ultra-wide screen you have a small advantage of having a wider visibility. CHG90 is also good in photo programs which makes modifying/editing photos much easier, thanks to good resolution you can see much more details and also colours are enhancement which is really important if we are valuing high quality in every aspect. One of the many CHG90 major features is HDR, which any software which is compatible looks beautiful. The only downsizing of the Samsung Ultrawide is lack of 4K resolution but that means that you don't have to have a top tier graphic card, any average will handle latest games fine. CHG90 is 144hz monitor so the difference in smoothness is gigantic which you are able to see a difference even in desktop. With FreeSync 2 module any AMD graphic card user will get even smoother framerate in video games.

    Everything that the CHG90 does, it does well - like the 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time and FreeSync 2 – Using the monitor, especially in fullscreen when gaming, is a strange, wonderful experience. The extended field of view along with the curved screen give a level of immersion that I've never experienced before.
    The screen allows much greater productivity and multitasking than using two standard 1080p monitors however I didn't personally see much benefit from layout improvement since I was using a 4K monitor in addition to a 1080p one previously and I miss the extra height that this offered in addition to the width.
    I liked the idea of the software that split the screen to allow many multiple programs to be easily set to a screen location, but I found that it was somewhat hit and miss as to whether a particular program would support the software and snap to the smaller window when required.
    Lastly regarding cost, I cannot agree that this monitor offers good value for money. Considering the price I would have expected the resolution to be at least that of 1440p without losing any of the other features. It's not all bad though, there are plenty of connectivity options for the CGH90 and the use of profiles to set the screen to your ideal output depending on your use at that makes temporary adjustment so much easier, whether that was in games, photo editing or office applications and web browsing or watching a movie. As I said, it's features are excellent and numerous it's just let down by price, other software incompatibilities and ultimately by the low resolution.

    I got the message that the parcel had been delivered. Sat at work watching the minutes tick by patiently waiting to get home and unwrap my new toy. Rang the missus to check the parcel had no damage from the courier, "No damage... but It's HUGE" she said. Even more excited now! Watched kettle never boils... Of course i drove at all the speed limits all the way home! got in the front door and pecked her on the cheek before pushing past in to the front room to see this towering object wrapped in black plastic. No way is this monitor that big! finally after taking a few pics of the box unwrapped I get the feeling that the excitement is worth it. opened the box(nearly the wrong way round)to be met with a very well thought out bit of packaging and planning. you just take out all the spare parts and actually build them and then attach that to the screen without removing it from the box. Genius. Ok, Its massive. As wide as my 55" Tv! So I quickly attached up to the PC (with my new 2080 Ti installed just days before) and updated the hardware as there was a usb download for it to stop some of the earlier issues. WOW. Not having those bezels there makes the world of difference! quicly downloaded the most detailed 32:9 wallpapers I could find. Mind blown... Right then, lets get some gaming going on. driving games beautiful, a game with pyramids in, Beautiful. a certain world war 2 game, Beautiful. Immersion is something I've always managed to get from 2 or 3 monitors but this... this really is on a whole new level. Im drawn in like nothing i even could imagine just purely because of no bezels and the level of detail. Ok. So I showed it off to friends that came round and played a lot of hours of gaming and also browsing whilst watching films side by side on it. They loved it and were in awe. taking selfies with it and sending pics to their teccy mates to show them what they're missing out on. Made me feel like a proud dad... I honestly can't say it enough. IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL! The colours are strong the QLED works so well, viewing angle is perfect as long as you don't sit to close. There is a but... and it's a big but! The best refresh rate I can get out of it with my top of the line Gsync card is 100hz! Really? Freesync 2 would have been lovely but I opted for a dearer card and had to pay the penalty for that by not getting the most out of it. What a waste of over £1000 for my card! This monitor made me feel like I'd found a pound but lost a tenner... :(

    My usual monitor set up is one 27in monitor, or two 24in monitors side-by-side, so this, as an equivalent to two 27in monitors My usual monitor set up is one 27in monitor, or two 24in monitors side-by-side, so this, as an equivalent to two 27in monitors seamlessly joined, is an impressive step up. Installation is a little trickier than most, as the curved screen mean that it needs some support, supplied by the cleverly-designed packaging, to attach the stand, which is very sturdy. The stand also gives a lot of freedom in height and angle, as it holds the monitor by a ball-joint giving a few degrees of latitude. There are a range of input sockets, though most users will opt for HDMI, which also allows for sound to be piped through to a headphone socket on the monitor. The large number of cables are kept a little tidier by a plastic cover which snaps over the range of ports. Once you've found enough desk space to put the monitor, and you've connected the cables, time to turn on. The on switch is located beneath a power light, which unusually is on when the monitor is off, and vice versa, but this means that the power button is easily found when needed. The power switch has more tricks, as by wiggling it in different directions, all the configuration options can be found in a sophisticated by relatively simple on screen menu. The screen itself is bright and clear, with enough resolution that pixels aren't easily seen as jaggies, but not so much that gaming is slow. Some games are better than others at using this unusual screen shape, but by compromising a little on shape, you can get full use out of it, as per photo. At a usual metre from the display, gaming is truly immersive, and a little awe-inspiring. The shape is also useful for more wide-screen format movies, though only a few movies use aspect ratios this wide, Ben-Hur is probably the closest. Regular use for Windows work is also a revelation. While few applications will usefully employ the entire width (possibly excepting Excel), having an enormous desktop means your're not flipping between Outlook and Word, or squeezing a couple of applications onto a screen so you can simultaneously read and compose. While a two monitor setup gets you some of this, the seamless CHG90 display is much more satisfactory. All in all, this is a well-made, unique monitor which can change the way you work and play, and going back to something smaller would feel like looking at your digital life through a port-hole.

    The first thing you notice with the Samsung CHG90 is just how massive the box is - roughly the size of a medium-sized fridge freezer.

    Opening the box you'll see assembly instructions. These are very straightforward as you attach the stand whilst the monitor is still face-down in its box. Once it's attached you just tip the box up so the monitor is standing on its feet and assembly is effectively complete. One worry with a monitor this size might be that assembly will be awkward, but that is not the case with this monitor.

    The box contains all the cables you may need - HDMI, DisplayPort, Power (UK and Europe power leads).

    I've primarily used the monitor in PBP (Picture-By-Picture) mode which means you can have a separate input source on each half of the monitor. This could be from separate devices (two different computers, console and computer, etc.) or two sources from the same device. I've mainly used it in the latter setup which results in a traditional dual-monitor setup with zero bezel between the two monitors. This allows all the standard features, such as snapping windows, to work as expected. The resolution in this mode is 1920x1080 for each half of the monitor, so full HD for each half.
    It's also possible to use Samsung software to mimic this functionality without using Picture-By-Picture mode.

    Initially I tested the monitor during office work and this worked very well. Not having a bezel in the middle means it's easy to have three windows side-by-side as you can have one in the middle that would usually be broken up by bezel in a traditional dual monitor setup.

    During gaming I switched off Picture-By-Picture mode and set the resolution to a full 3840x1080. This results in a very immersive experience and is an excellent way to game. Both the width and the curve add to this effect.

    Pros:
    * Massive monitor
    * Curve adds to immersion when gaming
    * Picture quality is great
    * Picture-By-Picture is an excellent feature to enable a "traditional" dual monitor experience without any bezel
    * Did I mention the monitor is huge?

    Cons:
    * Limited vertical resolution of 1080. This is unfortunate for someone like me who moved from higher resolution monitors as you end up noticing the limited vertical space. This won't be an issue for someone moving from a 1920x1080 monitor

    Overall, excellent monitor for anyone who wants a seamless dual monitor setup, or wants a super-wide monitor for gaming.

    WE NEED A BIGGER DESK!
    The Samsung CHG90 is a 49-inch Quantum Dot monitor with HDR, 144Hz refresh rate, FreeSync 2 and a 32: 9 aspect ratio, but above all it's a multitasking dream. With a 49-inch screen and a deep 1800R curvature, this display completely filled my field of vision, apparently wrapped around me. It is so wide that it is impossible, without taking a few steps backwards, to actually look at the entire screen at the same time. The CHG90 is closer to an HDTV with game-centric features due to its size. For the most part, the QLED Vertical Alignment (VA) panel in the CHG90 is fantastic. Color reproduction is excellent and with High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible games it is beautiful. Coupled with wide-open panoramas in a first person shooter, it's hard not to get dragged and plunge into all those pixels. That said, the CHG90 is not the clearest monitor on the market. The 3840 x 1080 resolution means that this is still a vertical 1080p monitor, so if you're used to 1440 or 4K monitors, you'll notice a loss of visual fidelity. The advantage is that you do not need a GTX 1080 Ti to run the monitor at its native resolution. The CHG90 is also one of the first monitors to offer AMD's new FreeSync 2 technology. the 3000: 1 contrast works very well and, combined with a nice QLED VA panel and HDR functionality, this monitor offers excellent black levels and deep. The dark and light tones were perfect for the whole spectrum and the shades of white were easily visible even in the brightest backgrounds. The Gamma settings on the CHG90 were almost perfect. Samsung claims that the CHG90 has a response time of 1ms, and indeed, the CHG90 is extremely fast in all darker transitions. Finally, I took a look at how the CHG90 behaved about potential ghosting problems, in which artifacts move behind fast-moving objects on the screen. I noticed a minimal amount of ghosting with the monitor working at its full 144Hz refresh rate. If you are looking for a monitor that will make sure that all those around you remain breathless, the Samsung CHG90 is the monitor for you. The only drawback, the price is a bit 'high for its pixel density, but, without prejudice to multitasking, certainly is one of the most fun and unique gaming experiences I've ever had.

    The moment we opened the box and saw for the first time the monitor there was a huge smile on his face, the monitor is big ... really big. Samsung has thought of an excellent packaging, which makes it safe to transport. It is a very well made, solid product, there is also included a bracket to fix it directly to the wall. The monitor can move in all directions on its support and tilt as you please, the table stand is very solid and made very well. The space that this monitor will occupy on your desk is 1203.0 x 525.5 x 381.6 mm with a total weight of around 15kg. We were also afraid of the close eyes / monitor given the size of this curved panel, but standing with the eyes at a distance of 60cm from the screen we had no problem of fatigue, neither in gaming nor even using graphics and video programs. also thanks to the 1800R curvature radius, which makes the gaming experience highly immersive. Samsung delights us with a 49-inch curved panel VA applied to the QLED technology with a contrast of 3000: 1; as if this were not enough this panel has a response of 1 ms with a refresh rate of 144hz for the joy of us videogamer. Let's talk about the resolution that in this case is 3840x1080pixel. Yeah I imagine some of you turn up your nose and say "but it is not 4 k?!?", And I answer you ... thankfully! To move a 4K of these size it would take a video card top of the range (maybe even put together), while with this resolution everything moves smoothly even with my GTX 970, with a GTX 1080 you will be more than calm for every type of game. Speaking of only gaming, the panel is exceptional with bright colors, dense blacks and I have not noticed any problem of ghosting or other smudges (144hz and 1 ms of response), possibility to adjust the colors and the color temperature itself, not to mention the size that will make you enjoy a 'videogame experience that define "immersive" would be simplistic. I also use it with Photoshop and video editing programs and I must say that this screen is a "game changer" for these jobs, having the ability to work on panoramic photos and having all the tools under the click is not a trivial matter, ditto for video editing with different tracks and beautiful big preview window.
    One warning: tried this giant, you will be impossible to go back ...

    I state that I am in front of a monitor at least 12 hours a day for work and in my free time now for 20 years. The packaging is done really well and apart from the confusion on the opening writings is all well divided and protected. The assembly of the pedestal is very simple and fast and from the very idea of ​​a very resistant bracket. The look of this monitor is really very nice and there was not a person who did not say WOW how nice! Excellent curvature makes it very good in games but much less good in professional use with Windows applications because if you are not perfectly perpendicular tends to blur in areas more distant from the point of view. The adjustments on the vertical and on the inclination of the monitor allow an optimal configuration of the position. Excellent LED back that creates very beautiful light effects even just looking at the back of the monitor, even better if this is coupled to a wall because it reflects the light and creates a nice room effect. In the Gaming field I have been able to test the quality and frequency response with both Xbox One X and PC and I find it really good and a very stable image even in scenes with many moving objects. The 144 Hz on PC are sensational, the image looks really real. The Ultra Wide 32: 9 on some games like car racing simulations really changes the ability to get involved in driving. The low latency or also called 1 ms LAG is ideal for all those fans who like me play FPS and among other things this monitor has its own profiles to be set depending on the type of game you are using. The radius of curvature curving at 1800R is absolutely spot on for an immersive gaming experience. But I find the lack of a 4K resolution that especially in the PC would have been ideal and gave a second life to the monitor in the professional field. Beautiful double video input feature that allows you to see split screen two sources at 1080P simultaneously. The monitor's OSD interface is well made and clear enough to understand what can be done in all menus. Drawing conclusions I would say that it is definitely a monitor aimed at Gaming even if not pushed all the games that are coming out in 4K and not for professional use. (I prefer a dual monitor). Among other things, I saw that his brother own 31.5 "must go out in 4K.

    Got it on Friday and sent it back next Monday, Very cool concept with the WoW factor.

    but:

    Out of the box 2 dead pixels plus 4 stuck pixels and the pixel density is very low across the panel.
    Cheap plastic construction, The panel itself gets very hot + from specific angles
    så hvis du står over det eller kommer fra en side der er meget merkbar panel flickering.
    The worst of all is the backlight bleeding, One of the worst cases of backlight bleeding I've ever seen on any panel.
    The built-in speakers never worked.
    Når du slår på din PC, går det til standby mode, og det skifter sig selv om dagen og det kommer ikke til at skifte på din PC, før du fysisk trykker på den irriterende fiddly strømknap, der er placeret i en meget unergonomisk position.

    This screen is perfect for gaming, I've had it for a couple of weeks now and I could not be happier with my decision.

    Have just invested in 2 big screens and this is one of them ... Maffig to size, fast update sequence and relatively good with inputs. However, bad speakers with a well-clipped sound
    However, at the same time it suffers from being very sore.
    Uneven in color shades, especially in the corners.
    Now that I've had it for a week, unfortunately I have to say that this is a disappointment for such a big deal of money. 32: 9 the relationship is too odd. Returns in favor of 3 "27" IPS screens from Philips.
