bought this for 850 on amazon today. 2 day shipping and cheaper so....
I have the Samsung 34" Curved Ultrawide QDot on an 8'1" Ikea Karlby counter top desk and love it. I can get this 49" for free (work benefit) but they stretch the image to fill the screen on games, so I opted not to go with it. That said, if you are looking for a great picture or a way to "one and done" your work space, this is a fantastic monitor.... Gaming, not so much.

:) I am the Commercial Sales Mgr at a Ram dealership and Chrysler offers really cool rewards if you hit objectives.
The monitor you see in the picture is my 34” Samsung QDot which I got for free. you see all the other stuff in the picture? That’s what my “free“ monitor cost me:)
ive seen this monitor for around the asking price (899) so this isn't that great of a deal /:
Is there a g-sync version of this?

Not that I've seen. These super ultrawides are fairly new on the market, so its still only the high end monitors from Acer, ASUS, or similar with G-sync ultrawides.
$850 on newegg right now. I'm the sale will end quick so hurry!

have same pixes almost half the price and to me more usefull , 100 htz though
In all honesty, this is just excessive... I don't want to have to move my head left and right so much, I'll tweak my neck lmao. In all seriousness though, I think 34-35" ultrawide 1440p is the sweet spot for now, once we get GPU's that can handle 4k gaming at 144hz I still think any bigger than 34-35" is just too much. Agreed? Now for multitasking and work I think this would be a great monitor, you basically have 3 screens without needing a monitor array.

Yep I've looked at that and it would be great if it was G-Sync - What would it take for Massdrop to manufacture a g-sync version? Well, that's probably in violation of their contract with AMD.
Can't understand why they make all these nice monitors with Freesync instead of G-Sync.

I would love to agree with you however, for the numerous G-Sync monitors dropped on Massdrop at this point the discussions are filled with complaints about how those monitors cost $200-$300 more than the same specs in a freesync monitors and how G-Sync is a rip off. Now, that being said I will for sure continue to source G-Sync products and list them in drops as I know that G-Sync is a superior product. However most are not will to pay the premium for it.

Because Gsync is Too expensive so monitor-manufacturers opt to sell more by making them in a "consumer grade" price range... Sort of...
This is cheaper on Amazon, and the 999 price tag is the same on bestbuy and Samsung. Why is this listed as a limited drop?

Because its 899 not 999

To look at the date of posting might help.
899 for this drop, 999 for the last ones.
Under specs, it should say FreeSync 2 support rather than just FreeSync.

Edit, I know it says FreeSync 2 in like the first paragraph, but I'm not gonna lie I tend to skip straight to specs and discussion and missed that at first.
49" at 1080p? Gross..

If anyone else is interested, a standard 16:9 4K monitor is 8.3MP, while 1440p ultrawide is 5MP, and this at 1080p is only 4MP. If they made this at 1440p, it would still be less pixels than 4K at only 7.4MP. Nvidia stated this week that 4k 144Hz displays are expected to arrive in April, so I'm guessing they have something in the pipeline that's able to drive them.

And if anyone's comparing this vs curved IPS 144Hz 1080p ultrawides (21:9), the 49" Samsung has the same vertical height, but an additional 16" in width. The ultrawides are normally ~$500 (LG was down to $300 on BF), so not really sure if the QLED and increase in width warrants double to over triple the price.. maybe?

This Monitor is to what I feel like to replace Dual monitor setup, because essentially it's like 2 1080p panels into one LOL~ Plus its a VA panel(Great colors), plus HDR (Not as good as TVs, but the impact is good), and 144Hz Freesync(Can be turned on manually in OSD and from my experience it take alway the tearing with no vsync turn on for games on Nvidia GPUs). I have used it as a daily, but had to replace it with the 32 inch 1440p version because of space issues. Would buy again when I have more desk space. Hope this is helpful \(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥
