LG to reveal "Ultra" series super-wide monitors at CES 2019 

LG is set to showcase a new range of monitors at CES 2019, unveiling their new "Ultra" series of displays, starting with their 32:9 UltraWide 49WL95 and their UltraGear 38GL950G G-Sync Gaming display. 

The LG UltraWide 49WL95 is a 32:9 5120x1440 monitor, which uses a 49-inch panel that can fill the role of two 27-inch 1440p displays, albeit without any bezels in-between. The display covers 99% of the sRGB colour spectrum and is designed to support HDR10 inputs, though the 350 nits typical brightness level doesn't inspire much confidence in the screen's HDR capabilities. 

Input-wise the LG 49WL95 supports USB-C, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs and is expected to operate at 60Hz, though the display's refresh rate has not been confirmed. The display also supports picture-in-picture mode for multi-device usability and can charge devices using USB-C with up to 85W of power. The 49WL95 also contains a 4-way USB 3.0 hub. 

On the gaming side, we have the LG UltraGear 38GL950G, a 144Hz G-Sync gaming monitor that offers a resolution of 3840x1600 and covers 98% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut. This gaming display also supports LG's Sphere lighting system, which is set to be detailed further at CES 2019. This monitor features both HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort inputs. 

Both the UltraWide 49WL95 and the UltraGear 38GL950G are curved displays, though LG has not listed the radius of their curvature in their press release.

Pretty cool, Expect super ultrawide prices to match

I'm content with 3440x1440P, I don't imagine I'll be moving on from that any time soon.Quote

No doubt - at least the Sammy 49" has dropped nearly $900 AUD since launch. At $1749 it's a good comparison to the 100hz 34" range.

They're still pretty niche and not all games will look great but I love flight sims, Elite and racing games and they look amazing. A great way to replace multi monitor setups and I reckon if you give it another 12 months there will be a lot more models in this aspect ratio. Remember what everyone said about 21:9 when it came out. Too wide. Not enough Vertical res, too expensive, too slow.

Absolutely perfect for a sim rig. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/AkDfDqC_NU0/maxresdefault.jpg

Fanatec had a heap of them on their rigs at the Sim Racing Expo. So neat and tidy compared to triple screen setups.Quote

I love Ultrawides of every type, I'm waiting for an Ultrawide that has 144Hz, 1440P, Full HDR, Freesync and around 35", I know a few will be releasing within 1 year but I'm waiting for the manufacturing costs to come down a bit, I don't need the bleeding edge of tech.Quote
