See mind-blowing detail and contrast as bright blue skies share the screen with deep shadows and silhouettes. The fast screen refresh rate ensures you flawlessly smooth action scenes even in games with high frame rates.
The 20-step Black Equalizer adjusts any game scene to the brightness level you want, letting you spot enemies hiding in even the dark areas of the screen. The CHG90 features an eye-saver mode which cuts down blue light emissions to a substantial extent. So, play on with reduced eyestrain and greater visual comfort. With picture-by-picture you can connect and view input sources without degrading the original image quality. The CHG90's audio-aligned arena lighting, located at the back of the monitor, adds to the thrill of gaming, getting brighter as the game's sound grows louder, elevating moments of high intensity. The height adjustable stand provides precision positioning for the super ultra-wide panel to let you work and play in greater comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 byK_Koppany from It could be betterThe idea and the usability is great, but it has a low pixel density and it lacks About the design there is nothing I can complain about except the stand/legs being made out of plastic instead of metal, its not bad but for this price it would be better in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAvariel from Great ScreenOK all Bare with me, i am trying the best i can to write in English here.I got a new computer with 2 GeForce 1080 TI last month with this screen. And the screen itself makes me happier than the computer itself. its so very clear, fluent and the colors are just simply amazing. i read some of the remarks that people wrote here and for the better part of them they had issues that were not linked directly to the monitor, and were from my point of view ''not informed and/or not objective with their critics'' This screen is the best one on the market so far with its 1ms response time, 144 refresh rate, and image Quality, you will not be disappointed in this screen

Rated 5 out of 5 byShrek81 from Beautiful displayThe picture quality of this monitor is excellent. The colors are beautiful. The speakers are built into the monitor. They're not very good at bass, but one could hardly expect them to be for their size. I've never had a monitor this size. I really like it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 byStoff from This monitor is in beta.for me it seems like this monitor is in beta, and what could be a good product was pushed on the market with alot of flaws.This is the list of issues i have gotten and still havent been able to resolve with samsung support.1. First issue im encountering is the monitor switching output (hdmi etc.) whenever switching from a fullscreen window to another window. takes about 2 secounds and then it turns on again.2. Ever since the start it has been making 'crack & pop' noises this happens when the monitor is made of cheap materials - the monitor expands and as a consequence of this i can even see pixels in the top of the monitor where the border was suppose to cover.3. Latest issue and the most annyoing is the monitor displaying white pixels in eaither the top portion of the monitor middle or lower part its just a sudden flash not triggered by any specific event, the 'white pixels' span the entire width of the screen.I feel like this monitor has so much potential and i do not know wich monitor i would chose other than this because it is an amazing monitor and for me this width is perfect for my line of work, im not mad at samsung im just sad, sad that this monitor has the potential of being a complete game breaker but falls short with major bugs and issues.I would 100% recommend this monitor if they fixed all of the issues thats currently with the monitor.See attached video and pictur for issues.Oh and last thing why freesync? like why?

Rated 5 out of 5 byJhonMD from FinallyHave owned for two months and found my all-time favorite. I like large, high-def monitors and tried 49"-51" 4K TVs, but they had too much real-estate for desktop gaming. I was always missing action due to the vertical distance from corner to corner. This is the perfect solution. Very happy and recommend highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 byBigMarky from Pictures will never do it justiceOnce you try it out, it's hard to use a regular monitor. It does not replace a true 4k setup on a 65"+ TV but just as good. So if you use your giant 4k tv for computer and gaming use - this is a different idea. Put them together, and just swap inputs for the best experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 bynzplayer from Fantastic MonitorThe only recommendation would be that Samsung starts to support the market and Gsync instead of FreeSync. Most people that can afford these screens will be running Nivida cards, not AMD. But love the monitor, blacks are deep it's bright and a dream to game on even without active sync.

Rated 5 out of 5 byPSOD1603 from Not too impressedAlready has a dead pixel in less than a week! Also not a lot of websites adjust for the monitor length so thats been interesting. The navigation buttons at the bottom are also hard to see; they should have designed a remote. Also if you are looking to try to mount this it can be a chore to find a good arm monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 byBedBug84 from ClarificationI returned my screen because of dead pixels.The monitor brightness is a bit of a jam here. in HDR it's extremely dark and hard 2 see.And furthermore, the gaming mode/overdrive automatically enables the backlight strobing, which in itself is great and makes for a blur free experience, but the brightness of the display with this enabled is quite frankly abysmal. With it off it's nice and bright, but you basically have to play in a completely dark room to see anything with the gaming mode on.Sadly running with it off makes(like all current VA panels) for an extremely blurry experience.The lack of backlight zones also causes problems in games that have a bit of contrast between dark and bright areas, it will literally cause big sections of the screen to dim and make the bottom 3/4 of the screen normal brightness and the top strip 1/4 really really dark, or vice versa. Things like a white fog in a dark area will also cause some really strange brightness issues, in a foggy section of CoD WWII Zombies, it got so bright that i literally could barely see anything on the rest of the map until i turned away for a few seconds.I suspect alot of the HDR issues also stem from Windows lack of proper support at this point in time as the monitor itself.I didn't mind the 1080p resolution as I prefer framerate over anything else. In many ways it's an excellent display, but I don't feel it's cutting the mustard for gaming quite yet, at least not at an enthusiast level.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAZZ25 from Great panel but some games will have troubleYou would be expected to play a lot of games in window mode due to resolution scaling. The monitor is great, but lacks some 21:9 aspect ratios like 3440x1440. As a gaming monitor, a lot of games are created for 16:9 or 21:9 ratio. Only some will support 32:9. Not having 3440x1440 (21:9) makes it difficult to play a lot of older titles. You can force 3440x1440 in Windows, but games will end up ultra stretched taking up the full screen. Would like to see a firmware update to include at least 3440x1440. and maybe 4280x1440 (one can hope).Free Sync2 / G-Sync compatibility issues - some games also will cause the monitor to flicker in window mode especially past the 60hz mark. to fix this problem just run the game in cap fps or change the maxium refresh rate to 59hz-60hz.

Rated 5 out of 5 bybitsquid from Excellent for gamingExcellent for gaming!Not bad for general work either - resolution is OK (just OK, not amazing) - but that is the trade off. Try running a game at a crazy resolution and frame rates will suffer unless you run a supercomputer.

I have money to blow on stuff like this so I do. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase of this monitor. Colors are awesome... response time and refresh rate are amazing. Games are super immersive and I have not had any compatibility issues. When other people see it they are in AWE. So yeah, 5 stars for a unique, first of its kind product. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 byjstaley from Steam Games Don't WorkDisplay goes dark with flashing input signal when trying to launch any Steam games. Previous setup consisted of three (3) 23-inch monitors running 5760x1080 resolution in NVIDIA Surround mode with no problems. Perhaps I'm just overlooking a crucial setting on the monitor that adjusts resolution to specific game capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 byBedBug8 from UpdateI have written a review of this monitor before. Now quite a while later I've purchased another one to see if there's been any improvements since last time I owned a HG90.I had issues with the backlighting in gaming mode + issues with the backlighting zones beforehand.The difference between the previous monitor I had and the new one i recieved today is night and day, so much so that I doubt it's just firmware upgrades that are the difference. I recommend disabling the backlight zones in SDR as they still cause some funnies in certain games.Other than that the monitor performs excellent. The insane blur that I experienced on the other monitor is nonexistent here, using the gaming mode is almost not really necessary. In gaming mode this monitor is also more than bright enough, almost a bit 2 brigth for how I generally keep my lights in my room. Haven't gotten to test the HDR much, but I assume it's pretty much the same as it has been. Pretty basic, not really well supported and windows HDR stuff = pretty basic and buggy. There are plenty reviews on youtube that test the HDR properly. I honestly don't find it necessary.Picture quality is excellent, colors are vibrant and very nicely balanced, very little blur, overall very good quality overall. I'm not bothered by the 1080p resolution as I prefer framerate over pixel density. All in all I'm very happy with this monitor, again, so much so that I suspect the panel had more issues than just a few dead pixels on the previous one I owned.I've tested LG's 35" ultrawide, Predator Z35/X34/X34P and AOC Agon 35". There's no comparison between the HG90 and the forementioned. If you really want a higher resolution I would go for the X34/X34P(they both have their pros and cons, most people seem to prefer the older X34 model).All in all an excellent product and I kind of regret not testing another one of these when I returned the first one. I would still like to see more backlight zones and proper HDR10 support but I'm sure that's coming down the line, and with the pricing of the current HDR10 monitors I don't mind the HG90 at it's current price at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 byapbaseball from I expected this thing to be stellar....I opened the box and said OMG out loud. This monitor is truly spectacular to look at. It's just beautiful. Too bad it dosen't work. Initially I hooked this up to my PC via Display port and I fell in love. So much screen real estate. So easy to multi task. Games that support this resolution looked wonderful!But I would walk away and the monitor would go to sleep. After that...good luck waking it up. Many times of unplugging and re-plugging the monitor into power and finally it would start working again. Walk away again and the same thing happens. Beyond frustrating that Samsung won't address this issue that MANY people have. Give it a Google! Shortly after that it would randomly start turning off while I was using it! Press the power button...nothing. Unplug, re-plug...over and over until it would finally kick back on, work for 5-10 minutes and just shut off again. I tried everything. New power cable, display port cable, HDMI cable, I went as far as swapping video cards...it all comes back to the monitor. At this price point, I expected this thing to be flawless. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time. Wait for Samsung to get it together and address the issues. Maybe the next version will be better....until then...I'll stay very far away from Samsung monitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 byRosk from PerfectionThis monitor is amazing. ALL Steam games will work on it, if it doesn't support the native resolution there will be a black bar on the sides(like other ultra wides). games the do support the full aspect ratio look gorgeous! I think it's a great value considering its the only one of its kind. thanks, Samsung!!

Rated 5 out of 5 byZipleR from 144Hz - Choppy VideoYour selling a top of the line monitor without the option of gSync. Why not release a gSync compatible version of this monitor? I am veryt dissapointed that my monitor has any "chop" or stutter to it when using a gtx 1080ti video card.I understand there may be a licensing fee which would increase the cost of the monitor, but I have already invested so much into the two of them, it would be negligible.

Rated 5 out of 5 byblackjacc from all excellent but i would definetly wait for a 4k oneExcellent monitor for gaming,, but if you do other things like photo editing you would go for a 4k one ( that's what i do, using additional 34" monitor)..HDR work perfectly "but" you have to adjust the settings/color from the Graphic card menu ( in my case NVIDIA) otherwise it looks like washed out. In the most cases don't expect a great look after enabling the HDR function in the windows display menu.I will calibrate the monitor together with the HDR and probably comment afterward, I need my two monitors to match the same colors. Overall great monster monitor :D
