Samsung C49HG90: decadent thoroughbred in 32:9

Extraordinary gaming monitor offers everything, except a good price per pixel ratio


Power consumption

The power consumption of the Samsung C49HG90 at maximum brightness - 263 cd/m² in the standard mode - is not very exorbitant. Normalized at a brightness of white of 150 cd/m² it is clearly one of the least efficient monitors compared with the other ones. This is not surprising because of the quantom-dot local dimming backlight.
