A 49-inch ultrawide monitor is extravagant, ridiculous, and amazing


There are plenty of ultrawide monitors available, but Dell's UltraSharp U4919DW stands out because it's the first 49-inch ultrawide monitor with a QHD resolution. It's extremely wide, has a pixel count that tops out at 5120 x 1440, costs $1,699 but can be found for $1,349 on sale, and can be split into two 27-inch 16:9 views. Its immense size and resolution mean you'll have screen real estate to play with, with enough vertical pixels to make elements on-screen look proportionate, despite its uncommon 32:9 aspect ratio.

The UltraSharp U4919DW surely isn't for gamers or creatives; it doesn't have HDR, is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate, doesn't have any frame sync tech, and doesn't feature any other color certification other than 99 percent sRGB. For those of you looking for better multimedia performance, Samsung's upcoming 49-inch monitor with 120Hz refresh, HDR, and FreeSync 2 might be a better fit.

By granting you the virtual real estate of two, 27-inch QHD monitors without a bezel separating them, the U4919DW monitor is best suited for finance and business users — the sort of people who need to display and work on massive Excel documents. Or in my case, it's ideal for having four huge windows side by side, each one for a different part of my workflow.
