The monitor’s native contrast ratio, peak brightness, gamma, color accuracy, and color uniformity are superior to what the overwhelming majority of competitors on the market offer. It can display amazingly beautiful images, with a wide range of vivid and accurate colors, rich and intense blacks, and some eye-catching intermediate tones that look genuinely accurate. Colors pop,and look crisp because of the monitor’s peak brightness of 331 nits, which, combined with the CHG90’s high color uniformity, makes the colors appear consistent across the entire panel. Dark scenes look deep because of the monitor’s native contrast ratio of 3756:1 which makes its blacks appear truly dark. Mid-tones look life-like as the monitor’s gamma is less than one percent off from the ideal value. Additionally, the Samsung CHG90 can display a higher variety of colors than the majority of its competitors because it uses a true 10-bit panel that allows it to reproduce more than a billion colors. Furthermore, the monitor’s color inaccuracies are so insignificant that the human eye can't see those since the panel’s average color error dE is only 1.13. See More
The Samsung CHG90 offers better gaming performance than the overwhelming majority of 40”+ competitors, as this 144 Hz monitor offers highly responsive gameplay with reasonably well-handled motion. Additionally, due to the monitor's aspect ratio of 32:9 you’ll have a wide field of view in games like CS: GO, DotA 2, League of Legends, and Star Wars Battlefront. See More
The Samsung CHG90 is a fantastic tool for productivity as its 49-inch 3840x1080 display offers enough real-estate to place three Google Docs side by side comfortably. The monitor will also come in handy for those working with massive Excel sheets because of its large on-screen area. Furthermore, the monitor’s picture-by-picture mode allows the Samsung CHG90 to display pictures from different sources simultaneously. Such a feature will make your life much easier if you use a laptop alongside your desktop computer. Additionally, you can manage and organize your workspace using Samsung’s Easy Setting Box. See More
Because of its full sRGB coverage, the Samsung CHG90 is an excellent tool for media artists, such as web designers and photographers that work in the sRGB color space. Additionally, Samsung CHG90 is suitable for those who make videos for web applications, like YouTube and Twitch, as those also use the sRGB as a default color space. See More
FreeSync eliminates tearing and reduces stutter because it allows the Samsung CHG90 to synchronize its refresh rate to the framerate of your AMD graphics card. FreeSync 2 is an advanced AMD technology which combines adaptive synchronization with HDR. AMD claims that only the best HDR monitors would be compatible with FreeSync 2. See More
The Samsung CHG90 displays good-looking motion with only some minor traces of motion blur following fast-moving objects on the screen as the monitor’s pixels need only around 10.8 ms to change their color. Such rapid pixel transition is achieved because of the monitor’s full pixel response time of 10.8 ms. Additionally, the monitor doesn’t suffer from any noticeable ghosting. Furthermore, the motion looks smooth because of the monitor's 144 Hz native refresh rate, which ensures that the Samsung CHG90 displays a new frame every seven milliseconds. See More
The Samsung CHG90 is among the most responsive monitors on the market as its input lag measures at an amazingly low value of 4.6 ms. A monitor’s input lag is significant in gaming as it shows how much time a monitor needs to process a frame generated by a computer’s graphics card. See More
Combining its color gamut, HDR peak brightness, and native contrast ratio with full HDR10 support, the Samsung CHG90 outperforms the nearly all of its competitors when it comes to the HDR media playback. When working with HDR media, the Samsung CHG90 can display almost 90% of pure HDR colors of the DCI P3 color space because of the monitor’s wide color gamut. Such DCI P3 coverage is an uncommon feature for a general purpose monitor. DCI P3 is the color space used in HDR media production. Moreover, the monitor has enough luster to highlight vivid objects in HDR mode where its brightness peaks at around 600 nits. Additionally, the Samsung CHG90 is among a handful of monitors that support HDR10. See More
This monitor will not work well with macOS because it uses a non-conventional BGR subpixel layout instead of the regular RGB that is used by the majority of panels these days. Unfortunately, the macOS doesn’t have the right tools to work with the BGR monitors. See More
This monitor is an excellent companion for any current-generation gaming console, including the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro because of its full 4K60 support. With this monitor, you’ll be able to unleash the full potential of those consoles. Additionally, as the monitor has noticeably lower input lag than the overwhelming majority of TVs. See More
While the Philips BDM4037UW can’t quite compete with fastest gaming panels on the market, it’d still make you a good companion for occasional, non-competitive gaming, as it’s responsiveness and motion handling capabilities are on par with what the other general purpose monitors offer. The monitor grants reasonably responsive gaming experience as it’s input lag is only 11.35 milliseconds. While some gaming panels are up to four times faster, it’s unlikely that you will feel disconnected even while playing fast-paced games. The motion appears relatively clear with only some small traces of motion blur as each pixel of the Philips BDM4037UW can change its color in almost no time due to the monitor’s full pixel response time of 4 ms. See More
The monitor’s USB 3.0 hub consists of four downstream port, and a single upstream port. You can use those to charge or interconnect numerous USB devices. Using it, you can, for example, attach a mouse, keyboard, and a printer to your computer using only one computer’s USB port. Additionally, the USB hub supports fast charging. See More
The Philips BDM4037UW is an excellent tool for productivity because it allows you to run multiple windows simultaneously in various arrangements. In fact, the panel has enough real-estate to for you to work with up to three Google Docs simultaneously. Furthermore, the Philips MultiView feature enables the BDM4037UW to work with multiple media inputs from different devices in either Picture-by-Picture or Picture-in-Picture modes. For example, you can watch a live football feed from your set-top box, while working on your PC. See More
The monitor’s native contrast ratio, peak brightness, gamma response, and color accuracy allows it to reproduce the picture quality that is on par with the best 4K competitors offer. Not only the Philips BDM4037UW displays dark scenes and dark elements with a good atmosphere to them, but it also manages to nail the color reproduction and intermediate tone field. Dark scenes look rich as the monitor’s native contrast ratio of 4457:1 allows it to reproduce intense and deep blacks. Colors pop and look vivid as the monitor’s panel can get up to 312 nits bright. Mid-tones look realistic thanks to the monitor’s gamma of 2.2. Furthermore, the monitor’s average color inaccuracy dE of 0.84 tells that the color inaccuracies of the Philips BDM4037UW are such minor that the human eye can't see those. See More
