LG’s new 49-inch UltraGear curved ultrawide monitor sells in the US. This crazy curved monitor from LG sizes up with the Odyssey G9 from Samsung on the key gaming features and specs, but it, however, beats it on price by a whopping $200.
LG’s new 49-Inch UltraGear
LG has now put its latest massive curved gaming monitor up for sale in the United States, and the monitor is here to undercut the standard Odyssey G9 of Samsung by $200. The new UltraGear 49-inch from the company sets buyers back by $1,299.99 on LG’s online store and it reportedly includes important gaming features such as 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time on deck, alongside the crucial RGB lighting on the rear just to kick-start your picturesque gamer nightclub vibe.
Now, this new LG UltraGear isn’t supposed to be cutting-edge in regards to display technology just like the company’s 45-inch OLED offering or QD-OLED and “8K” Mini-LED Odyssey gaming monitors of Samsung. And it also does not have the bending gimmicks of the LG Flex. But instead, this very new LG is here to compare to the immersive and already-proven regular Odyssey G9 of Samsung.
Specs and Features of the LG UltraGear
And just like Samsung’s Odyssey G9, the new LG UltraGear has a 1000R curved ultrawide VA panel with a 32:9 aspect ratio as well as a 5120 by 1440 resolution. The UltraGear however supports FreeSync Premium Pro alongside HDR10 which is one of the several High Dynamic Range standards. Meanwhile, Samsung on the other hand has both FreeSync and G-Sync VRR, along with its own gaming-centric HDR10 Plus of the company’.
LG’s ultrawide also could be a worthwhile productivity powerhouse for multi-windowed web-blazers and Excel warriors (as the resolution of these monitors apparently can display columns A through CA at 100 percent zoom). But while the monitor however has the right ports for gaming such as two HDMI 2.1 and a DisplayPort 1.4 and it doesn’t have USB-C to easily plug and charge a laptop although it does have support for a USB 3.0 Hub. And if you’re less into gaming and very much into work, LG does have a same-sized monitor for that very purpose.
The LG UltraGear Monitor Is For Gaming
You should however remember that the new 49-inch LG UltraGear is simply for gamers who are very much interested in the immersive size and quick performances that are provided by these types of monitors. And based on the usual prices, gamers can get to save a ton load of cash with LGs UltraGear. But you should however be sure to keep a very keen eye on possible sales on the LG as the Odyssey G9 at most times falls way below the asking price or at least just around the $1,300 mark.
More Features of the LG UltraGear Gaming Monitor
I have mentioned many of its features in the previous paragraphs already. And aside from seamless motion as well as imaging, there are other notable features you need to know about this gaming monitor. It is equipped with G-SYNC and Radeon FreeSync2 and they provide smooth motion without the usual tearing and stutter you may experience with other monitors. It also has a simplified mapping for smooth and fast HDR imaging amongst many others.
