This QLED monitor is a beast. No need for a dual-monitor setup if you have this on your gaming rig.

Samsung's 49-inch monitor is called CHG90 and is a giant in the world of displays. It takes up a lot desk space, but that is not a problem if you already have a two or three monitor setup. I currently use a three monitor setup in my man-cave.



This ultra-wide monitor features a 32:9 ratio which is significantly larger than 21:9 monitors, which is usually what you get from 34-inch or 27-inch screens. It has a comparable base to support a monitor this size so give yourself a good bit of work if you plan to get one of these.  I think I will put it on my wish list.

The monitor's 3,840 by 1,080 resolution is a bit odd. Ultrawide monitors typically feature either 2,560 by 1,080, or 3,440 by 1,440 pixels, for a comparison. It also features a deep curve (1800R), which makes it easy to see all sides of the screen. The display has two HDMI ports and two DisplayPort connections (one of which is a MiniDisplayPort). There's also a USB 3.0 hub on the back with three ports.

There is an on-screen configuration menu feature that is relatively large and displays easy to read options for the various settings and clearly lays how to get to various settings.
