If you’re a gamer, than you’re intimately familiar with multiple monitor setups and therefore understand one of the biggest issues, the bezels. While they’ve been shrinking over the years, having 2 bezels, regardless of how trim, will never compete with a single, ultra-wide display that has a seemless screen that consumes your field of view.

Samsung sent me their amazing (also absolutely ludicrous) 32:9 CHG90, which is a massive 49″ QLED gaming monitor, that runs at 144Hz. This afternoon I unboxed the beast and for those yet to see it, below is a gallery of the unboxing.

As you can imagine, there’ll be plenty of additional posts on the experience of gaming on this display, along with a full review, but for now, enjoy the gallery and leave any questions you have in the comments.
