Philips Launch Impressive 49-inch SuperWide QHD Monitor

As a software developer I could definitely use something like this and the price seems acceptable for what it is. This monitor probably isn't for an artist/designer or gamer as the specs don't seem to be there but if all I'm doing is looking at code and email all day this should be fine. I've always found the bezels on monitors sitting side by side annoying especially when spending the first few hours at a new job getting them to line up nicely.

I prefer individual monitors when developing. So many windows open at once I like having 6 left/right snap points rather than trying to get things aligned manually on a single monitor

Well 144Hz version would cost $2500, so you get what you pay for!
60Hz freesync support is just fine unless you have triple sli 2080ti...

I can two 27" monitors for $110 each, saw off some bezels and melt them in the oven to get a slight curvature. Not sure what I am paying the extra $1000 for.
 


So 120/144Hz or higher isn't practical at this size and price. What refresh rate would you accept as a compromise between 60Hz and 120Hz?

I used a 144Hz 27" 1080p monitor the last 10 months and now I'm back on 60Hz and honestly I can not tell the difference but keep in mind I'm not gaming either.

Oh Philips, you lost me using a VA panel...and 60Hz is also a killer :(

Here's some examples of 'dream monitors' -- pay attention all you gaming monitor manufacturers...

UQHD (3440 x 1440) OLED or Micro LED HDR 34 inch curved (1900R or less) 200Hz G-Sync

SWQHD (5120 x 1440) OLED or Micro LED HDR 49 inch curved (1900R or less) 165Hz G-Sync

UHD (3840 x 2160) OLED or Micro LED HDR 32 inch flat or curved 144Hz G-Sync

We've been waiting for these monitors for years and yet still no shows in the real world. WTF???
