If you’re looking for a truly ultra-wide gaming monitor (32:9 aspect ratio), the well-regarded Samsung CHG90 is well-regarded. We tested the CHG90 and found it accurately reproduces DCI-P3 colors and has excellent response with low input lag.

The CHG90 retails for $999.99, but is currently on sale for $699.99, which represents a 30 percent price reduction. The 49-inch monitor has something called Dual HD resolution, or 3840 x 1080 with a 1ms response time and a 144Hz refresh rate (AMD FreeSync supported), thanks to a QLED panel. If you’re looking for contrast, the CHG90 delivers 3,000:1 performance. Typical brightness is rated at 350 nits, while maximum HDR brightness tops out at 600 nits.

The brightness tops out at 250 nits and the response time is 4ms, which is to be expected for a budget monitor.
