The Samsung CRG9 is an ultra wide 49 inch gaming monitor with a higher refresh rate, contrast ratio and speedy response time. The super ultra wide dual QHD Samsung C49RG9 will give you peak brightness and a little to no input lag, making this one of the best widescreen monitors and the best computer monitors available for gaming.

Why We Like It – Samsung CRG9

The Samsung CRG9 will give you peak brightness and little to no input lag. The 120 Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync technology nicely reduce input latency. A quality monitor, for sure, much like its cousin the Samsung C49RG90.

Pros
  • Huge screen
  • Amazing resolution
  • Very fast refresh rate
Cons
  • May be too big for some desks

Performance

Due to countless features, including quantum dark technology, you’re getting a solid performance with this Ultra Wide curved gaming monitor. The 120 Hz refresh rate and AMD freesync technology nicely reduces input latency and low frame rate compensation, much like the Asus Designo Curve MX38VC.

Viewing Angle

Samsung boasts that this 49 inch super ultra wide monitor is a multitasker’s dream. The split screen function allows for multiple viewing angles of specific parts of the screen. Like the Dell AW3418DW, the size alone allows you to go anywhere in your workspace or entertainment area and enjoy the beautiful picture.

Durability

Much like with the Dell U3419W, the frame and virtually borderless edges feel strong and solid. You can mount this widescreen, but it’s best to prop it on a desk or surface. Even though the bottom stand can be a little bit on the wobbly side, you should still feel happy with this monitor’s durability.

Ports/Expandability

You’re going to get lots of opportunities for expandability with this widescreen monitor. Input connections include one HDMI, four USB and two DP ports. HDMI, DP, and an install CD is included with the screen. Add smart devices or gaming systems, easily.

Value

This is an excellent price for a name brand TV, especially one of this size and with all these features. There is free shipping and a solid return policy so you could feel comfortable giving this TV a try and if it doesn’t work out, try something else.
