Samsung C49HG90 delivers fast speed because of the 144Hz refresh rate and is like two 27in monitors placed side by side.
The C49HG90 boasts impressive specs, but there is 1 area that may give some users pause – resolution. Viewable height is 1,080 pixels, the same as a Full HD (FHD) panel (1,920 x 1,080). And its extreme width means density is a relatively low 88 pixels per inch. This is right on the edge for many who may be used to Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440) or Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160) panels. How will this pan out in actual use? We’ll explore that later.
But first, we should explain the QLED label. In this case, Q refers to quantum dot, which is the method Samsung uses to increase the backlight’s available color gamut. Unlike more expensive RGB and GBr LEDs, a quantum dot backlight uses a glass tube coated with semiconductor nanocrystals that covers blue LEDs. The crystals are electro-emissive and create red and green light when excited. It’s a cheap way to provide extended color, and in this case, you get almost 90% of the DCI-P3 gamut.
The C49HG90 also includes the latest in gaming and video technologies. FreeSync 2 operates over a 36 to 144Hz range, so there’s no chance you’ll see a frame tear. And the 1 milli sec response time makes this monitor perfect for gaming.
The C49HG90 can also be mounted on the wall, with a full motion mount, for better range of positions.
