Ultrawide or Superultrawide

This question must have been asked about a thousend times already. As im planing on getting a new monitor in the near future i was looking at 21:9 1440p monitor's.
It was at that moment i saw the Samsung C49RG90, and what a beast it is. So after some researching and reading reviews etc im still unsure about what monitor to pick.
I'm currently using a Dell U2312HM, and just gaming @ 1080p 60hz, Im mostly playing world of warcraft, and some Battlefield now and than.
Now i've been looking at a few monitor's, and i've "sort of" narrowed it down to two.
LG's 34GK950G and the Samsung C49RG90, while im leaning towards the samsung, the VA panel makes me doubt about it.
I love the color accuracy of the IPS panels. altho im comming from a 2012 model, both panels will probably be so much better than the dell im currenly using.
I've been looking at the LG 5k2k monitor aswell, and some other 4k, 1440p's and 32:9's but they mostly are 60Hz, and i will probably regret buying at 60hz later.

Im realy looking for expierence with both these monitor's or even side by side comparisons.
I'm aware its quite a personal issue aswell, i'd just like to get some decent information from people that have hands on expierence.

VA panels are the slowest panels around so if you are looking for a monitor with fast response time anything with a VA panel is not it
Also note that any IPS that claims that its 1ms is in the monitors fastest overdrive mode and in that mode the picture often looks like garbage so the 1ms is marketing hype

Another thing to touch on is a lot of people think a curved monitor is a good idea but ends up hating it so have you ever sat down and used a curved monitor before?
You might not like it and in that case it would be a bad idea to buy a curved monitor

And then there is the fact that some games have really bad or no support for UW or they require a ton of tweaking to get working probably
Have you considered all the cons about UW?

I almost bought an UW monitor myself but ended up dropping the idea because no UW monitor that i liked existed

Subbed.

I have the LG34UC98 -- not exactly the same model as you listed but similar. The 21:9 ratio is great -- for productivity and gaming. It's super annoying whenever an app opens maximized by default. I think support for 21:9 is great as well in terms of gaming.

No experience with VA panels however I too am considering the C49. I'm wanting something with high Hz but also the 32:9 ratio -- I'm addicted to screen real estate now.

VA panels are great for colour depth (blacks are black, rather than muddy) but shilka's right when he says their response times are slow.

If woes about games not supporting it are an issue, or applications doing stupid stuff... I'd suggest Surround, even though it seems to be falling out of favour. I rarely noticed the bezels between screens when gaming, because if the game is designed well (problem for ultrawide too) then your focus is the centre screen and the two either side are simply for peripheral vision.

according to tftcentral this seems to be one of the fastest premium ips monitors out right now with an actual response time of only 3ms with no overshoot

i see ultra wide as a stop gap to high hz 4K, and the stretch @ 5120x1440p is pretty extreme, even in fully supported titles.

max over-drive usually looks like ass, and is compounded by ambient occlusion, so I typically use the middle setting.

if you have the money, go LG 4K OLED.

I knew about the 1ms response times on ips marketing. What i did not know was the slow response times of VA panels. As i mostly play World of Warcraft the extra resolution of a 21:9 would be prettynice to have tho so im not realy worried about aspect ratio too much.

I'm currently using a surround setup, 3x Dell U2312HM's. Altho i'm more likely to play at 1080P just to browse wowhead etc on the side.

Due to what has been said above the only thing the c49rg90 has to offer over the LG seems to be better color depth, blacks, and HDR. But the IPS seems to be the better choice than.

I've been looking at 4k high refresh monitors aswell. But i had my mind set on 21:9, altho im very open for suggestions. Im realy just looking for decent panel for light photo editting and alot of gaming. Preferably around 100Hz. With realistic color reproduction. The LG 34" 5120x2160 has my attention aswell. Only if it were 75+Hz it was an easy choice.
