    I tried VR, it’s now collecting dust in a box. Gona eBay it….. This however is the real deal. I should however start by saying I don’t game on my PC much. There are loads of reviews on YouTube that tackle this for gaming. If you can afford this and a bad-ass graphics card or two, then go for it, it’s probably awesome. I bought this to work on.

    I’ve had a side by side 22″ 16:10 monitor setup for the last 10 years. They were dell ultrasharps, great image quality, but the bezel in the middle always drove me mad. They were a bit small, but the 16:10 aspect ratio offset this quite a bit. I saw the superwides, but they’re too big to mount side by side, and too small for serious productivity work.

    Then last year came the super-ultra-wides. Oh yes… but the resolution was disappointing. Damn. If I’m putting £1000 down on a monitor it needs to tick all the boxes, not just some.

    This C49RG90 is the business. Decent resolution, awesome width and height. Colour reproduction is great, HDR seems to work well enough. The only weakness so far seems to be in the HDR local dimming. I believe the panel is edge lit, and if you have a large black area with a white object in it, the general area becomes gray. It’s a shame, but it’s an acceptable limit for a feature I barely use. If you are after the ultimate HDR experience, this probably isn’t it. I’d expect you need to wait a while or spend significantly more – plus forget this form factor. That said, if you sit just right, you can’t see the light bleed.
    My GeForce GTX 980 drives this just fine for productivity work, running full res and 60hz. To run this at 100hz, you need to connect it up to a 1.4 displayport. You also need to use their cables. No REALLY. Seriously, trust me or you will believe your monitor is bust. If you are panicking because you rigged it up with some awesome 8K displayport cable, and there’s interference and corruption all over the screen, chill and use one of the two cables supplied. This happened to me. I had however read about it previously, but believed it to be someone with bad cables – turns out the internet was right.

    Monitor doesn’t seem to wake up when you turn the computer on – which is a weird omission from such an expensive monitor…. possibly because it’s set to Auto-Source? But still, weird. You have to press the button to wake it up.

    Now, the reason I bought it. Productivity. I’m a software architect, so I spend my life in Visio, Visual Studio, Word, Outlook .. .the usual. It’s fantastic. But please, please go and get microsoft powertoys for windows 10. You need them. It totally transforms windows. Now you can set up any number of zones and have windows snap into them by holding shift whilst you are dragging. It’s simple, it’s great. Samsung includes something similar, didn’t try it.
    I usually have my main focus window occupying the centre – roughly the size of a 28″ 16:9 screen, and then one window either side for email and whatever I am referring to. It’s so nice not to have to work to one side all the time. Now I can look straight ahead and not be looking at the bezels from the two monitors.

    Currently having issues getting my dell laptop to drive this via a D6000 USB-C dock at full resolution. The dock and the laptop are apparently up to it, but so far “only” 3840×1080 achieved, so not sure where the problem is. That’s surprisingly useable, just a little disappointing.

    Something worth mentioning, I originally had a weird clicking sound from the underside of the monitor. It would alternate sides and occur once every few seconds. Wasn’t that annoying – but not great. When I installed the monitor driver, the refresh rate is now listed in some places as 59hz (others 60hz), and the clicking has gone… possibly coincidence, but worth a try if you experience it.

    Hope this helps

    Unboxing and handling is relatively easy. I would have liked a hard copy of the user manual, but it’s easily obtainable online.
    It was easy to assemble and position on the desktop (once the previous 2 monitors and cables removed) I put it on a corner desk and seem to have more space now than with the previous setup. Gets quite warm so really needs the ventilation space they suggest. It’s good that both displayport and HDMI cables are provided, and positioning them for connecting to PC is straightforward, although a little awkward at times.
    The monitor is enormous, and the screen is very clear and bright, with no dead pixels. The jog button to switch it on and change options is easy to master.
    It works with a chromecast, but I need to set it up so the picture isn’t stretched.
    Seeing games with native support for ultra-wide is incredible (totally insane is what some people have said). I have just been so distracted by playing games (it is a gaming monitor after all) that I haven’t got round to trying many of the settings or options for connection yet, so I will report on my experiences later.
    It’s great to be able to have several good-sized windows open at the same time without them overlapping. (I managed to watch 3 sports events simultaneously and didn’t miss anything on any of them).
    I would never have dreamed of spending so much on a monitor before but I feel this is worth it.
    Update:
    I have now had the opportunity to try the PBP (picture-by-picture) mode, which allows you to display input from two separate sources at the same time on side by side fixed-size windows which work totally independently. (they can be 2×16:9 or 21:9 + 11:9) With my desktop PC connected to displayport, and the second device connected to HDMI, It worked straight away with a laptop, and should work with with a second desktop computer (PC or Mac) as well as with the second displayport. With a console, (PS3) it worked perfectly. I haven’t got PBP to work with an android device, but that might be because I’m doing something wrong – sometimes the order of connecting and switching on is important.
    The presets for different game types are useful and can save time setting up your own profiles (which you can do as well). The HDR features of the display do have an effect but I’m not an expert – I just know it looks great.

    This is simply an amazing monitor and not just for games. The extra screen space really does improve productivity – no more constantly switching windows around as there’s enough space for 3 windows side by side easily. I bought this to replace by 42″ 4k TV that I’ve been using as a monitor for ages. While I did initial miss the height the 4k 16:9 TV game me, I soon got used to it and quickly found the benefits of a 32:9 ratio.

    However, I guess most people will want this for games and it doesn’t disappoint there either. My nvidia card instantly detected it as a GSync compatible monitor and the motion in games is super smooth with no hit of stuttering, tearing or motion bluring. The difference really is remarkable. It’s also worth noting that this panel is over 1million pixels less than 4k yet still looks crisp and sharp in games with the added benefit of higher FPS. I don’t think I could ever go back to a 60hz screen now – this has ruined me!

    The panel itself is super super bright – I had to turn the brightness right down for it to be comfortable. I guess this is because it is a HDR1000 panel and you can tell it is top quality as the colours are absolutely outstanding. Backlighting also seems very even and there were no dead or stuck pixels.

    Other notable things are that you get all the cables you need in the box. There is both HDMI and DisplayPort cables as well as a USB pass through, UK and European power cables and a VESA mount.

    Installation is simple and, if you follow the instructions, the stand can be fitted while the display is sitting in it’s box which means it is super easy for 1 person to do it.
