Shopping for an 49" ultrawide monitor: 5120x1440 or 3840 x 1080? NO GAMER PLEASE

(1/5) > >>

I am looking into a 49" ultrawide monitor upgrade but I can't decide about the resolution 81DPI 3840 x 1080 or 109DPI 5120x1440?
I post here because if I google only gamer stuff comes up, but I am not a gamer as I use the PC for doing something else (for example EDA CAD).

The two separate inputs feature is nice so I can have truly two 27" monitors stuck togheter without the bezel between, and I can move the windows left monitor <--> right monitor in a breeze.

Anyway I do not want a too high DPI otherwise my eyes can't read small text in full resolution.
I already burned my finger with a wrong purchase: ASUS MG28UQ (28") 4K UHD (3840x2160), the DPI here is too much 157 DPI and it bothers me (thanks to windows if I lower the resolution everything looks blurry... it's another sad story to tell....)

What do you think? Do you have any direct experience with an ultrawide monitor?

EDIT: Just by looking at number I feel 109DPI 5120x1440 is the right spot.


I have 2x 2540x1440 at work, 2x24" and it is great for work. At home I have a 34" ultrawide, it is great for...  gaming, but nothing else really. I dont watch movies on the computer, but I imagine it would be OK for that. Dell has the U3818DW, and the U4919DW. I imagine these would be good work monitors, if price is not a problem. If it is, then 2x 24-27 inch monitor is half the money.

 :-+, still thinking but I like saving some $$. Thanks

I use a Samsung CRG9 for work and gaming. It's basically a 2x 27" setup without bezels (you can split the monitor into two virtual monitors if you care). Pretty happy with it.

Way better for viewing large tabular data or similar due to no bezel.

DPI is fine at 1 meter distance with my vision (5120x1440 49" ultrawide).

Is there anything concrete you'd like a user experience report on?

Black Phoenix:
The market is not that big for 49" UltraWide Monitors - Except the Gaming Ones:

Philips Brilliance 499P9H;
LG 49WL95C-W;
Dell U4919DW;
Samsung C49J890DKN.
