The Amazon Prime Big Deal Days sale keeps on giving. Earlier this year, the excellent LG 49-inch UltraGear monitor was on sale for $899, which was the lowest it had ever gotten down to. But now, with Prime Day now in full swing, it's down to an even lower $849, a massive 35% saving bringing it down from $1,299. That's a $400 saving!

What is the LG 49-inch UltraGear monitor? Well, it's one of the best gaming monitors on the market, featuring a huge 32:9 aspect ratio with a curve radius of 1000R. This monitor is wide, making it great for immersive experiences such as gaming or movie watching.

This LG gaming monitor is nothing short of a beast. With a huge 49-inch curved display at an aspect ratio of 32:9, LG touts this monitor as one of the more immersive gaming displays on the market. It has a 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response rate.

✅ Great for: Gaming, watching ultrawide content, productivity apps

It's a great gaming monitor because LG built it to be one. It supports refresh rates up to 240Hz, and has a low response rate of 1ms, which is good news for gamers playing first-person shooters. It also has great brightness and support for HDR content, which will make bright scenes shine. It also supports AMD FreeSync Premium.

The 49-inch display has a resolution of 5120 x 1440, which equates to roughly two QHD displays side by side. It also has LED lights on the back, which can be customized via software. Not only is it good for gaming, but it's also an excellent monitor for productivity workflows too.

For example, you can have Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Word open side by side, and each app will have what is essentially a full 16:9 desktop space to operate in. Instead of having two individual monitors, you can have one and use software to divide it up.
