C49HG90 49" 3840x1080 VA FREESYNC 144Hz Gaming Quantum DOT HDR Widescreen Curved Monitor

The ultra-wide 49-inch screen with its innovative 32:9 aspect ratio means you always get to see game scenes in their entirety, exactly as their developers intended. And the 1800R curved panel immerses you in gameplay and delivers cinematic viewing for movies and video content.

With Quantum Dot technology, Samsung’s QLED Gaming Monitor provides an extreme upgrade in your gaming experience. Quantum dot makes today's games appear more lifelike by delivering a billion shades of accurate color.

The CHG90 QLED Gaming Monitor features support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), so dark areas are darker and bright areas are brighter. See mind-blowing detail and contrast as bright blue skies share the screen with deep shadows and silhouettes.

The CHG90 supports AMD’s new Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology, which gives gamers a smooth HDR gaming experience with twice the perceivable brightness and color of that offered by the sRGB spectrum.

Blending its advanced motion blur reduction technology with its superior VA panel, Samsung has created this curved monitor with a super-fast 1ms MPRT (motion picture response time) that lets you enjoy unprecedented gaming performance without motion blur across the entire screen.

The fast 144Hz screen refresh rate ensures you flawlessly smooth action scenes even in games with high frame rates. And you can adjust the refresh rate to 60Hz/120Hz when necessary.

The 20-step Black Equalizer adjusts any game scene to the brightness level you want, letting you spot enemies hiding in even the darkest areas of the screen.

The CHG90 features an eye-saver mode which cuts down blue light emissions to a substantial extent. So, play on with reduced eyestrain and greater visual comfort.

Developed in concert with the Samsung Galaxy Team, the semi-final winners of the LOL World Championship 2016, the CHG90’s factory-calibrated game display modes instantly optimize black gamma levels, contrast ratios, sharpness and color value settings for any game genre, be it FPS, RTS, RPG, or AOS.

View key game settings at a glance and adjust them on the fly to your preference using shortcut keys.

Equivalent to two 16:9 monitors side by side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen provides the ultimate in multitasking flexibility. Forget about multi-monitor set-ups — with no bezels impeding your view and a single power cable for minimal clutter, you can multitask in truly seamless style.

Easy Setting Box lets you partition the screen or display multiple screens of different sizes with just a click for truly simple multitasking.

With Picture-by-Picture you can connect and view input sources without degrading the original image quality.

The CHG90’s audio-aligned Arena Lighting, located at the back of the monitor, adds to the thrill of gaming, getting brighter as the game’s sound grows louder, elevating moments of high intensity.

The Height Adjustable Stand (HAS) provides precision positioning for the super ultra-wide panel to let you work and play in greater comfort.

The WOW factor is strong with this one

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... :(

Perfect For Gaming

The CHG90 monitor from Samsung, like everything, has its strenghts and weaknesses.

First of all the strengths. This monitor really shines when gaming and is obviously built for it in pretty much every way, from the low response times to the HD resolution. That might sound like a strange thing to say when you consider that you can now get 4k monitors and this is only 1080p, but if you opt for 4k, your graphics card will have to push 4x the pixels to your display and that just isn't necessary. That makes this screen absolutely perfect for anyone looking to upgrade their gaming experience. Running through a warzone in Battlefield 1, racing into the sunset in Forza, or re-living Half Life 2. Every single game you throw at it looks stunning, it draws you into the action in a way that other screens just can't. It gave me the edge in B1 a few times by being able to spot enemies in my peripheral.

Just remember to check if your favourite game supports ultrawides, or you'll end up craning your neck to read your ammo count at the very bottom left of the screen.

Now for the negatives. First of all, the UK plug was hidden at the very bottom of the box - underneath the screen and the polystyrene. The logical place to put it would have been in the box of accessories. It also shone when used as Picture-By-Picture (PBP), which allows you to use the screen as two seperate monitors with different inputs. I used it with a Raspberry Pi on one side and my PC on the other. I did experience some problems with this - when I plugged in my Pi, the screen would freak out then go blank. However the screen worked fine if I switched to the Pi as the sole input. Whatever the problem was, it sorted itself out.

When it came to productivity, the screen was great once you got out of the habit of running everything in full screen! Instead, I used a 3rd party tool to better split the windows, as the one that comes with the screen didn't work with Firefox or Spotify. Perhaps the main problem for me was the legibility of the text. Whatever I did, I just couldn't get the text to look right, it would always appear slightly fuzzy. The size is also a negative when it comes to productivity. The screen is effectively 2x 27" monitors, but unless you move the screen so you're looking at one side (rather than dead central), then you end up staring at a patch of screen 27" in the middle of the monitor and 2x 13.5" slithers at each side. So for productivity, it actually needs to be bigger!

Immersive gaming, wide-screen productivity

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.

Staggering Size

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.

* 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?

* 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.
