What could possibly be the best video editing monitor, if not the best curved monitor for immersion and its multiview feature, this super ultra-wide gaming monitor has a flattering aspect ratio for its screen size, and FreeSync technology to amplify the benefits of certain specifications like the shorter response time and higher refresh rate. Speaking of benefits, check out what you get when you invest in one of the best computer monitors around.

Why We Like It – Samsung CHG90 49-Inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor

The Samsung CHG90 49-Inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor offers impressive color support, a screen that is not only wide enough for great immersion, but is also more than wide enough for the multiview feature. It also has a diverse assortment of ports.

Pros
  • High refresh rate
  • Great color support
  • Fast response time
Cons
  • Not built-in speakers

Performance

Users can have a QLED gaming experience due to the inclusion of AMD FreeSync technology as well as having a VA panel for a curve panel. This combination results in having a 1 ms response time, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and an NTSC 1976 color gamut standard. It also has an aspect ratio of 32:9, the same aspect ratio as the LG 49WL95C-W, and a little bigger than the LG 386UC99. It’s not 4K resolution, however, but it supports over 1 billion colors that the screen can display.

Viewing Angle

Due to being a curved monitor that can be physically adjusted in more than two ways, there are more good viewing angles that are easier to find compared to a flat monitor, even if the flat monitor can also be physically adjusted in the exact same ways. This is similar to what you’ll find in our Samsung LC27F398FWNXZA C27F398 curved monitor review. The user will be less annoyed with how light can be reflected off of the screen when using monitors such as this Samsung one, and can focus more on whatever task they’re working on because they’re not being annoyed.

However, not all curved monitors are so annoying, as you can see in our Samsung CF391 32-inch curved monitor review.

Durability

Like the Philips Brilliance 499P9H, it’s constructed in a way that the screen itself never sticks out past the base of the stand, keeping itself from tilting over. However, the bases for both monitors are different shapes, and those shapes can impact the overall stability. The Philips has a rectangular base that gives the user a better feeling of security, while the Y-shaped base of the Samsung could possibly worry the user at times. It makes you wonder why you’d pick two monitors vs an ultrawide.

Ports/Expandability

Like a lot of other gaming monitors, this monitor also has multiple types of ports to allow the user to have more options as to how they can connect their monitor to their PCs, among other things. It contains a DisplayPort, a mini DisplayPort, a headphone jack, 2 HDMI ports, and USB ports. However, despite how big this monitor is, there are no built-in speakers, and the user would have to connect their own speakers to it if they don’t feel like using headphones.

Value

It’s a very expensive monitor mainly due to having freesync technology and a very widescreen. However, it costs about $40 less than buying two of the Samsung C27HG70 monitors, or something with similar specifications, and connecting them together to have access to the multiview feature. The monitor may be slightly smaller than having those two monitors connected, but setting up the monitor and finding enough desk space for this curved screen is also easier in comparison.

Samsung CHG90 49-Inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor Wrap Up

Most customer reviews have praised the monitor’s high-quality graphics and have been satisfied with their gaming experiences. One reviewer noted that having one big monitor is more manageable than connecting two or more monitors together. Keep in mind that, like with other large-sized electronics, buying it online will risk getting the monitor damaged before being delivered.
