    Bruh I really want to see these stacked height wise so it’ll be normal proportion so it’s not all width. Gaming on that would be amazing
    I would name it *_stacked_*

    I don't know if it's dank or dumb, but I do know it's Dariusburst. One game! Still cheaper than an actual Dariusburst cab!

    I use one of this and other ultra wide... Actually i used to have 2 ultra wide and thia super ultra wide as a main. But, my case is a programmer studing game dev and pro tech lover profile LOL. I reduce one to out in my work station at job placa. Totally want a even better one, but i feel to gaming a 3:1 ratio will be better

    I just got my beautiful 34 inch ultrawide and now I'm already dreaming of that 49inch.
    The PBP software on LG is amazing, hope I could do that on Samsung too

      I already got the CRG9 and I thought it would be super amazing. First days totally ok, but I started to feel dizzy and black bars annoy me, starting to regret and maybe go back to 21:9

    Can't imagine this would be useful for gaming. Would be great for mixing audio or working on video though.

    This was Exactly what I needed of information. I was wondering the actual size compared to a person, how it ran, and most importantly, how it could be split up. That setup with a game in the middle, then youtube to the left and streaming at the right is just the thing I need. Thank you for the awesome work and all the information. ^_^

      @Sleep Sleeper Lol I said that because you wanted a big ass monitor, not because of the shape. Talk about getting butthurt and not taking a joke.

      Same as me, they say 28" depth minimum so its no happening on a Malm desk unless you pull it far from the wall and lean it over the edge a bit :(

    Driving / flying sim could be nice with it, tho I think I'd opt for vr at that price, as it's way superior to regular monitors for those purposes.

    I love mine. Destiny on full and Netflix on 16:9, all I need. Switch is a little stretched on full but it is for cartoony games so it doesn't matter ;) Didnt realize there was a headphone manager lol. Upgraded from an HP envy curved 34. The windows manager from Samsung allows for customization of the space.
