Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The LG 49WL95C-W is the best overall of the 49-inch monitors we've tested. Its vast screen area and high resolution for its size make it ideal for multitasking. Its pair of 10-watt speakers provides good volume and sound quality. LG includes a mere one-year warranty, which is stingy considering the product's price.

Pros[**]
  • Ultra-wide aspect ratio
  • Good color accuracy
  • Solid build quality
Cons[**]
  • No built-in speakers
  • No adaptive sync

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The LG 49WL95C-W is a good monitor for most uses. The high resolution, wide format screen is especially well-suited for office use. It's a pretty basic gaming monitor, with no dedicated gaming features, but it still delivers a good gaming experience. It isn't as good for HDR gaming, though, as it has disappointing contrast and can't get very bright.

Pros[**]
  • Outstanding size and high resolution
  • Wide viewing angles
  • Excellent low input lag
  • Good response time
Cons[**]
  • Can't get very bright
  • Limited ergonomics
  • No FreeSync support

t3[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
LG UltraWide 49WL95C Curved has a 49-inch, 32:9 aspect ratio, 5,120 x 1,440 pixel resolution curved display. It's not the sharpest, but it's more than sharp enough for everyday use, video editing, and a bit of gaming. The maximum 60Hz refresh rate will put serious gamers off. The build is solid and premium-feeling, there's support for HDR 10, and you can even connect up two devices to the screen and use half the space for each of them.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive 60Hz refresh rate
  • Great build quality
Cons[**]
  • Not the sharpest

Sentiment Score[*] 56%
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.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous design
  • Excellent build quality
Cons[**]
  • No local dimming
  • No HDR10 support
