if you have the desk space this dual 27" monitor (49") is great. not all games make use of the ultra wide res, but more and more are. Also great for productivity.

My self I had to go with just a 38" ultrawide. but if I had the room I would have picked this one

If it's 1440p, it's an Okay deal.

Edit: Amazon specification page sux, 1080p here 1440p there. Confirmed on samsung official website, it's 1440p.

it's 1440p x 5120... why would you want more for gaming? it would already take a 2080ti to play at that res at constant high fps in most new games, maxed out?

4k on a monitor is overkill right now on today's gpu's. on my 38" I am very happy with the 3840 x 1600 of my 38" and feel no need to go 4k right now uptil gpu's advance more.

Is it? I hate amazon's specification page. It says 1080p here and 1440p there.
Why would I want more? I didn't. But, unless you play professionally, or didn't have a powerful enough graphic card, why not?
4K on a monitor is Overkill right now on today's GPU? - No, unless you game professionally.
You feel no need doesn't mean other people wouldn't need.

well, right now there is NOT a 49" ultrawide with higher than this resolution available so it doesn't matter about wants/needs. This is as good as it gets for a monitor with this wide of aspect ratio.

Like I said. I didn't think 1440p is not enough. According to amazon's specification page, it's 1080p. 1080p on the 49 inch ultrawide is ridiculously low. I didn't dig in more on the spec because under my impression, samsung DOES have a 49 inch panel with 1080p resolution, with stupidly similar model number: LC49HG90DMNXZA.

I also would always "like" more resolution, I get it.. but for this form factor 32:9... 5120x1440p is great (and the max available right now), and already hard enough for more high end pc's to cope with.. and yes this monitor is https://displaysolutions.samsung.com/mo ... 21/C49RG90 ... some simple googling would have solved your wrong 1080p assumptions..

you do realize that different aspect ratio's exist right?

UHD "4k" monitors have 8,294,400 pixels with a resolution of 3840x2160. These are 99% or more of the 4k monitors and TV's available today.

"True" 4k monitors have 8,847,360 pixels with a resolution of 4096x2160. These are very rare, with the only 2 available today on Newegg being the HP Z4Y82A8 and the Eizo CG319X.

The C49RG90 has 7,372,800 pixels with a resolution of 5120x1440. This is 88.89% of the overall pixel count of a typical UHD 4K monitor, and 83.33% of the overall pixel count of a true 4K monitor. You shouldn't have issues with a 2080 keeping at least 60 fps, but you'll need something seriously beefy like a 2080ti to be pushing 100fps regularly with maximum graphics settings.

This is the lowest this monitor has been since release if I'm not mistaken. Really tempting... I'm torn between this and waiting for the Asus or Acer 43" monitors.

Can any of you with knowledge of displays predict how this CRG9 would compare in terms of color accuracy vs Acer CG437k and Asus XG438Q?

Edit - I bit the bullet, thanks op! Worst case I'll replace it in a few years when there are some monitors with a taller aspect ratio.

Thanks OP! I’ve been eyeing this monitor for a while but the price was holding me back. At this price, not thinking twice!

I got the 38” LG - awesome monitor and great price - I think this is the largest size I would go for computer monitor. Played AC Odyssey, the UltraWide is awesome, then Apex but screen is too big for FPS but I already felt like my 24” BenQ 144hz was so small lol.

Amazon doesn’t sell the monitor directly anymore and no more 850 :(

Keep the 38", this is too niched as a gaming panel. It's only the equivalent of a 24" 16:9 monitor in height, making it less ideal for productivity.

I bought this monitor about six months ago and love it.

It's fantastic for most things, including especially gaming and productivity. It's a great conversation starter too. lol

The only warning is that the vertical resolution (1080) means text can be a bit blocky if you look closely.

It's not noticeable for most daily uses, but if you're doing graphic work that requires small fonts and/or very fine resolution, it's not the monitor for you.

Also, it comes with a great stand, but it's very hard to find an arm that works with a model this curve and weight. After a couple of returns, I eventually found this one, which juuust works: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B015ROFFGM/

This is the updated model to the one you have, it's 1440p vertical resolution
