      Rated 5 out of 5 by from CRG9 great for Work and Play. Wow, just wow, that is most probably going to be your first reaction when you see it for the first time. For gaming the 120hz 5120*1440 is like no other available on the market, the super ultrawide ratio is immersive increasing dramatically your horizontal field of view and the 120hz refresh rate gives an amazing connected feel. The monitor is using a VA panel that gives a good contrast ratio but usually at the expense of the response time of the pixel. The good news here is that the panel is responsive at all frequencies and the smearing and shadow effect. The monitor also supports FreeSync 2 HDR for owner of a Radeon graphic card over the 48-120hz range. It also supports LFC in case you get out of the range without flickering. The HDR implementation is pretty good with great colour reproduction and a good contrast ratio and an impressive 1000nits peak brightness. The monitor has 10 vertical dimming zones which is a bit on the low side, I wish Samsung had used an array local dimming solution instead but this is on the best HDR implementation I have seen on a monitor and at this price range it doesn’t have any competition. In order to use HDR you will need to make a small sacrifice though as the display port 1.4 interface can’t support this resolution at 120hz with a 10-bit colour depth. I personally restrict the refresh rate at 100hz, but you can also lower the resolution of use Chroma subsampling. I also use this monitor for work and the real estate that this monitor provides is a real luxury. As a software engineer, I always have a lot of windows open going from my main code editor to documentation, emails, slack, and the application I am working on. The CRG9 gives you a lot of flexibility. My favourite set up is to have a 16:9 windows right in the centre which host Visual Studio or my main work item and two half screens on each side of it for the rest of the info I need. But you can experiment and create a many configuration as you want. And finally you can use the monitor with two sources at the same time, like 2 PCs or a game console and a laptop. Just keep in mind that HDR, FreeSync, and a few other features are disabled in this mode, your refresh rate will also be capped at 100HZ. Overall, I love this monitor, it is a delight to work and play with. Samsung has fixed the issues if the previous generation, the HDR performance is enjoyable and within this price range you would be hard pressed to find a more impressive monitor.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Dual-Monitor Gaming/Multi-tasking I give this monitor 5 stars because it accomplishes what it set out to do perfectly. But beware, you need to know what you're getting with this beast. I can now comfortably put three windows side by side to do my work and that alone is worth the price of admission. Gaming wise this thing is fantastic. I have paired it with a RTX 2080 Ti and all games run beautifully. Everything looks nice and crisp on the high resolution 5120×1440 screen and HDR1000 makes the colours and brightness pop. Freesync works from 48hz up to 120hz and you can also simultaneously use FreeSync/G-SYNC and HDR. The view is so immersive, it's just fantastic. This monitor has a DPI of about 80. This monitor has no speakers at all. I have it mounted on my monitor arm with no problems. The monitor weighs 33lbs which many will find heavy. Getting it mounted was quite the chore and nearly led to my wife divorcing me, but we did it. I have to say overall I love it. I can fit everything I need comfortably onto the screen. No more switching desktops. It's been a great productivity and "staying in the zone" boost. My only complaint is how it changes sources, it's a bit tedious. My productivity, focus and happiness while working has increased so much with this monitor, and gaming is fantastic. I use Linux with a tiling window manager. To be honest when I'm in Windows or OSX then this monitor isn't quite as godly. The automatic tiling really helps squeeze out the full worth of this giant beast. I've had zero issues with it. No matter what machine, OS or whatever, it has worked 100% perfectly, it's simply stellar.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's incredible!! It's incredible!! Every game I have run on it looks crazy! Doom at 5120x1440@120 will make your eyes pop out!! The combination of the 32:9 aspect ratio, high frame rate and HDR makes playing on this thing like nothing else I have seen. I can see enemies on screen that other people can't. The curve is 1800R, more curved than a TV. You sit so much closer to it that it has to be more aggressive. Once you are sat in front of it you don't really notice the curve but you do notice how much more comfortable it is on your eyes. I have an RTX 2080ti in my PC. I think if you want to game on one of these an RTX 2080 is the minimum. It being so large and sitting so close to it means that any drop in settings you do, to get framerate up, ends up looking muddy, you're kind of defeating the point of having it. If you get one, be prepared to have an irresistible urge to buy a stupidly expensive video card. With nVidia enabling G-Sync on Freesync monitor you get full VBR on AMD and nVidia cards. It works great. I use multi-monitor setups so this monitor has meant that I can now run my desktop on one monitor yet have more screen estate than before. It's amazing how more productive you can be with a 5120 x 1440 desktop. Games in HDR look great but the real star is Netflix. I found that Netflix didn't show me HDR content until I installed "HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer" from the Windows store. I'm blown away by this monitor, if your on the fence about getting one and have the room, buy it.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Monitor for both Gaming and Productivity The first thing I noticed when I collected this monitor was just how huge the box was, and upon opening it I was completely taken back by the size of it, it is huge, however this is not a bad thing. Once it's all plugged in and powered on it really does strike you just how amazing this monitor is. When it comes to gaming, it means that you have the most immersive experience possible, with the 1,800R screen curvature most of your field of view is taken up by the screen. With the 5120x1440 resolution the 4ms response time the 120hz refresh rate the 1,000 nits peak brightness and HDR it truly is a no compromises monitor. I can't imagine any game looking any better on any other monitor. When it comes to productivity you can have at least 5 tabs open at once and still be able to read everything clearly without having to zoom in, which makes writing papers or programming a dream. When first ordering this monitor I was worried the size of it would mean that it wouldn't be as sturdy or well-made as some smaller monitors, but the build quality of this monitor is incredible from the very sturdy metal stand to the rigid plastic surrounding the screen. There isn’t a single part of this monitor that feels cheap or flimsy. The only negative things I could find to say about this monitor is the HDR being a bit hit or miss depending on the game, due to the limited lighting regions, and blue light on the back on the monitor being redundant most of the time and annoying when watching a movie in the dark, however as a whole this monitor is incredible so 5 stars.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its fantastic, could not fit in all i had to say. Hi everybody I would like to start this review on the Samsung CRG9 super ultra-wide screen monitor with the box, because when you see it for the first time and absorb in the size of this beast you know you have something that is that bit more special hidden away inside. I was like a kid who just had the best Christmas ever just looking at this thing before me. After cutting through the tape and opening the box lid you are greeted with printed instructions on both sides for fixing the leg to the monitor and for getting the monitor out of the box. What did I tell you, what an amazing box with its useful build instructions. Now we get to the admire the contents, parts to be added or used with the monitor. They are all laid out on the top half of the polystyrene encasement. Ok that was for dramatic effect it’s all wrapped in polythene to protect it. I have added a photo of the contents unwrapped of cause so I don’t have to list them here. If your one of those people that don’t read the manual, you’re in luck you don’t get any. Well not the paper type anyway, the manual comes on a mini CD. Remember you do get the instructions on the box lid and a brief open out sheet with some on too. Ok now we have unboxed everything we need to stop ourselves from grabbing the screen and pulling it out like we did with our new television when we got it, It’s a big no no due to the curve in the screen. Simply put it will not lay down flat so don’t do it. You first need to build the leg then fit the leg while the monitor is still in the box. The leg of the monitor is a heavy and well-built bit of kit that you know is going to hold the monitors weight well. The leg is built from metal then a plastic shroud is fixed over this, Solid bit of kit indeed. Building the leg is so easy, you simply put the two parts together then using the two wing nuts on the bottom to tighten them up by hand, you can then use a screwdriver to just give them a nip. A lot of force is not required. Once you have the two bits together you fit the leg with the four screws which are pre fitted to the body of the monitor. Having fitted the leg to the monitor you now get the disk in two halves. These get cupped around the neck of the leg and then pressed into the monitor. The role of this is to defuse the blue LEDs that encircle the top of the leg support. So far I have managed to complete the tasks myself but now I need to call on the good wife. I will link the rest of this review to my video.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are you a creative? BUY THIS MONITOR NOW! For years I've worked with photo and video, using two 27" monitors side by side, with 2 separate screen set up on the computer. Frustrated by the massive bezel gap in between them I was keen to try this monitor out. That keeness has transformed into absolute delight and I'll be an ultrawide 32:9 evangelist for life! This monitor is astonishing, super sharp, great at 120Hz (flicker free and easy on the eyes). Picture quality and colour accuracy was amazing, and I'm sure it's an epic gaming monitor but it's the sheer joy of the working experience while editing video that has me absolutely hooked. Having an editing timeline that stretches 2/3 of the width of my screen, having tabs and windows open just as I need them, the 3 window wide split screen for apps all superb. The picture in picture mode is also amazing as I can plug in my macbook pro into one input and my PC into the other and have both on screen at the same time. The ultimate in productivity! Honestly I could go on and on. I don't think I'll ever go back to a boring 16:9 monitor again. As I said in the title, if you are a photographer or filmmaker... then what are you waiting for? Buy this monitor, you will NOT regret it.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - Just Wow! This is a big monitor, but boy does it spoil you. Gaming is immersive and the extra resolution makes it great for creative work. Top PC games come alive on a display that fills your senses. Hooked up to my gaming Pc, it runs at full 5120 x 1440 and the 120 hz refresh rate makes the whole game silky smooth and responsive. While in theory, you're looking at the space that two 27" monitors would give you, the single unified pane of glass makes it feel like so much more space. Switch to your 'business mode' and you have a huge canvas to arrange your work on. For video work, the width makes editing a joy, for development work boy will you love the ability to see entire projects on one screen. Hooking up a laptop made it wonderful work experience. The Picture-in-picture mode even allows you to hook up two machines and split the display between them. Just remember not to get too distracted by gaming! In Summary, this is an amazing display that will completely spoil you from ever going back to something smaller. Predictably wonderful for gaming, but also great to creative work. Recommended.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Monitor! Bought through Ebuyer - the (rather large) box was received without fuss and packaged really well. The monitor comes with all the accessories you would need: Choice of HDMI and Display Port, stand and back plate (for wall mounting). Very easy to set up if you follow their instructions. It sounds silly to say since you're probably reading it going "how hard can it be".. but Samsung have made it amazingly easy to build the monitor while still sat in its protective casing. The monitor takes up a lot of real estate on your desk - more so than you realise. This is especially true in terms of the depth of the stand as it sits on your desk. So unless you plan to wall mount the monitor, this is something you should be aware of. Initial impression of the monitor is WOW - incredible. No dead pixels. Astonishing brightness and vivid colours. I've only had it for a couple of days mind you, but boy am i excited to waste some more time in front of it. I will need a new graphics card though.. my aging GTX 970 just won't cut it anymore for gaming on this beast. UPDATE: Bought an Nvidia RTX 2080 gpu. The nvidia control panel recognises the monitor as Freesync, and so far absolutely no problems with regards to gaming (Gaming - WOW!) Work 10/10 : The monitor is truly useful having multiple documents / Web pages / spreadsheets and emails open side by side. And 1440p over 1080p is qlvery noticeable when working with words and numbers in smaller fonts, as the pixel density comes into its own when viewing anything in its native resolution. I do a lot of writing as well (admittedly mostly on a laptop) but on the two occasions I've used this monitor, having your thesaurus AND source material open alongside a double-paged word document is annoyingly useful. And I say annoyingly, because it now makes the laptop feel frustratingly small and awkward to use in comparison. Gaming 10/10 : The resultion is shy of a full 4k pixel count, so my RTX 2080 is able to power through max settings at its native resolution without much effort. And boy do games look gorgeous in super widescreen format (for those games that support the resolution). Even 'dumbing down' to 2560 x 1440 games look stunning and run smoothly @ 120hz with freesync enabled. I have to say that I prefer it at this resolution on some games, as it allows me to have the gpu and cpu info along with game leaderboards and stats up alongside the game. Very useful! All in all - what an incredible monitor. Very happy
