Handy discount on this monitor. Obviously not for everyone and I balked at the idea of these before. However I’ve started to use a similar one at work and it makes sense.

Model No: LC49RG90SSRXXU

5120 x 1440 , 120 Hz

Last this cheap around September last year according to the camels. I also have the option to pay with instalments that may help someone.

    It is not a better screen. Lg C2 is more expensive, has low PPI, does not have GSync Ultimate, does not have 175 hz, only tiny 120 hz, it cant hit 1000 nits, only 792. It does not have 3 year burn in warranty. It is still too big to be a monitor and is not 21:9 format.

    Most games I’ve come across so far support it natively. Even stuff from mid 2000’s. Only downside is that although the main graphics look fine, some HUDs, information boxes etc sit away off to the left or right so there’s a lot of looking from side to side. (edited)

    Looks like they are using a smaller aspect ratio.

    Movies, depending on how you set the player up, will play as a 16x9 area in the middle of the screen. If you set the player to use the whole screen then it won't look good.

    You are getting extra fov, depending on the game design and how you set it up.

    I have had the G9 for a year or so and I'll not be going back to a normal widescreen any time soon. Recently got the ergotron mount and can see what all the fuss was about.

I want an ultrawide like this, I have a FE 3070 Ti, I’d be quite happy with 120hz and I currently have 144Hz. I’d never spend over 1000 on a monitor, so is this still a good buy?


    I'm not a owner of the monitor but am looking to buy one, this monitor has been £670 in the past and was released in 2019 so I'm thinking of holding out for a bigger price drop. I have access to Samsung's Employee program so I have a better chance of catching a discount than someone who doesn't have that access so this is a good price with that in mind.

    Look at any review, they all love it, so I highly doubt you'll be disappointed. 1000nits for HDR media sets this aside from all the other cheaper alternatives so if that's not something you'll use look at the other brands that have 49" ultrawides for £500 and below

    I've got 1000 hours + on an Odyssey G9 for gaming and work use. Don't think there's a better monitor for what I wanted to be honest. And I paid just over £800 for it and has been extremely well spent.

    Obviously it helps that my system will quite often get 240hz in most stuff, can appreciate not everyone has got high end hardware, but the CRG9 has been available for £500ish previously, wouldn't pay more than that really.

You can run the C2 is 21:9 with no imagine quality loss an a higher resolution if you want. 3840x1600 vs 3440x1440 on the Alienware. It's OLED so there's no blooming around the switched off screen when doing this. Also the 120hz of the C2 is more responsive in terms of input lag then the 175hz on the Alienware. Also it's 4k, vs 3440x1440 which is far more usable in general content, doesn't have the weird text fringing of the Alienware monitor. Enjoy the inferior experience of the Alienware though.


    This is BS and you know it. Enjoy neckpains and headaches from using massive screen as a monitor. Pray that you wont have any burn in either.

    109 ppi is more than 105
    175 hz is more than 120.
    There is a massive difference between 120 hz
    And 144 hz.
    Lg C2 is not curved which makes it difficult to use as an oversized monitor.
    Alienware is curved which is perfect

    Horizontal and vertical black bars are awful, so plz stop embarassing yourself, TV will never double as an ultrawide.

    I will enjoy superior product and you go spend £ 600 more for TV/monitor hybrid but buy some painkillers for headaches and buy extra warranty years for burn it.

    Given the game still and this film one too, I'm fairly certain either Tony doesn't know how to use the monitor correctly and his eyes are acustomed to the wonkyness, or Tony is a madman legend that makes it his mission to do everything wrong just to prove a point.

    If you plan on buying this monitor to watch 16:9 films stretched to twice the width at 32:9, then you too can be a madman legend.

    Samsung product naming is pretty much as bad as their quality control for any of their 49" ultrawide. Read reviews, if you're looking for an ultrawide, might be worth looking at AOC AG493UCX2 or waiting to see if LG up their game on their next one. I wouldn't gamble my money on one of Samsung's screens or customer service. (edited)

    I went from the 34" version of this monitor to exactly that 49" AOC, not fair to compare features and it's not better right across the board but a noticeable step up in build quality. Little things too, like the Samsung having an annoying bright blue power LED versus the AOC having a discreet little soft white one.

    The Samsung felt a bit dated even last year. That RRP is the same as you can get the AOC for, which is nonsense. It's a decent price if you want a high-resolution 49" now, but I wouldn't leap at it personally.

    Someone sounds a little too invested, but on a 90cm desk 42" is easily usable, an since you have it a little further away 105 PPI actually appears sharper than 109 PPI.

    There are no vertical black bars, and the horizontal ones make no difference to anything since they are just switched off pixels. There isn't a massive difference between 120 and 144Hz either, I doubt you would be able to tell the difference in a blind test. Burn-in also isn't an issue unless you don't know how to use the TV. I got my C1 for £799 in November and that is a much better deal than £1000+ for a QD-OLED that only really has a higher refresh rate as an improvement. I will probably buy a QD-OLED monitor at some point, but definitely not the first iteration that (inevitably) has some issues.

    It does not matter,you have bars within the frame. It makes it awful for both standard format and 21:9.
    It just does not work. You also need yo have curvature so image would be naturally in your field of vision.

    Like I previously said, tests have show the input lag on the LG C1/C2 is slower than the input lag on the Alienware even at 175hz. But honestly like John said the difference is minor at best anyway.

    Also someone really needs to explain to you how field of view works. Because the further you sit back from something the higher your FoV.

    A curve is good for an ultrawide I agree because you're suppose to sit very close to it. It's useless for a 42" screen as you need to sit further back. I did have an Samsung Odyssey G9 32:9 5120x1440 screen prior to switching to an OLED screen.

    So trust me when I say I know how ultrawide works. It has it's own massive set of drawbacks. But even ignoring them that Alienware monitor is good but isn't better than a 42" C2 of general usability sorry. (edited)

    The black bars are absolutely fine, almost like the TV becomes a monitor itself since they ate switched off pixels.
    I have a 170Hz monitor. Behave yourself, 120 to 144 is nothing like 30 to 60.

    Black bars are absolutely not fine. Displaying content like games is not the same like watching movies.

    I am not suprised that you wont see diffetence between 120hz and 144hz, after all you need 48 inch screen, 50 cm away from your face.
