Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The LG 49WL95C-W is a good 49 inch, super ultrawide monitor with an impressive 5120x1440 resolution. Like most IPS monitors, it has disappointing contrast but good viewing angles. This monitor supports HDR, but this doesn't add much, as it can't display a wide color gamut and can't get very bright in HDR. It's a pretty basic gaming monitor, with no dedicated gaming features, but it still delivers a good gaming experience.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
LG 49WL95C ultrawide monitor costs $1,496 (£1,160, AU$2,085) The full 49-inch diagonal of the curved LCD panel is impressive enough on its own. But it's the 32:9 aspect ratio that makes this monitor so incredibly eye popping.

  • Beautiful 32:9 aspect ratio
  • Excellent build quality
  • Nothing in particular
