Samsung's ridiculous 49-inch gaming monitor is $200 off in Amazon's Black Friday deals

The Samsung CHG90 is like two 27-inch monitors glued together into one absolute unit.

Samsung's titanic 49-inch CHG90 monitor has been reduced for Black Friday, bringing the ultimate monitor for ultra-wide enthusiasts to a new low price point. Amazon are asking $900 for it right now, down from the usual price of $1100.

This Samsung 49-inch monitor provides a truly immersive experience, thanks to its massive size and significant 1800R curve. Rather than being a standard 16:9 or ultra-wide 21:9, the LC49 goes further with a 32:9 aspect ratio that's like two standard 27-inch 1080p screens glued together. If you like dual-screen setups but don't like having bezels in the centre, this is the ideal solution.


The Samsung monitor has a QLED VA panel so you can expect good colour reproduction and there is the option for HDR as well. Finally, this is a 144Hz monitor with FreeSync 2 support, so fast-paced games feels suitably fluid and responsive, making it easier to track moving targets. Despite its massive size, the 3840 by 1080 resolution isn't that hard to drive, even with a mid-range gaming PC - although if you're considering this monitor, it's likely that powering even a 4K monitor wouldn't be a problem for your battlestation. The Samsung CHG90's response time of 1ms is also impressive, on par with the best TN monitors without the poor colours and disappointing viewing angles that are typical of TN panels.

Altogether, the Samsung CHG90 is a unique and highly rated monitor that's become a little more affordable thanks to a $200 price drop for Black Friday. If you're keen to build the ultimate driving sim setup, enjoy shooters in an ultra-immersive super-wide aspect ratio or just want to keep your favourite four websites open at once, then this is the perfect monitor for you.
