Viotek makes compelling gaming monitors that aren’t always perfect, but very competitive in their respective segments like the Viotek SUW49DA. Its a super ultrawide gaming monitor that arrived just in time to battle it out with the $1700 Samsung Odyssey G9 which has better specs all around but at a much steeper entry point. This makes the case of the Viotek SUW49DA much more appealing at this point, especially since not all cards can reach the G9’s maximum refresh rate singlehandedly.
The Viotek SUW49DA boasts a 49-inch super-ultrawide screen with a 5120 x 1440 native resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s comparable to two 27-inch 1440p displays side by side, but the gist is you don’t have bezels in the middle to disrupt the screen space. The 1800r panel is also rated with a 3000:1 contrast ratio and backlight that enables HDR400 certification.
Another key aspect of the Viotek SUW49DA which many will like is its impressive color coverage of the three popular gamuts. The monitor provides 121% for sRGB, 90% of DCI-P3, and up to 92% of Adobe RGB. Couple this characteristic with superb factory tuning and you get a vibrant and balanced monitor for gaming that is also great for professional applications.
This top-tier model comes with a dedicated remote and it uses DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.0 ports for connectivity. Its also designed with simplicity in mind, and we know many of you will appreciate that over gaudy aesthetics.
The Viotek SUW49DA is now available on Amazon for $979.99, although it supposedly has an SRP of $1088 according to the brand. This model comes with a 3-year warranty with the Zero-Tolerance Dead Pixel Policy to ensure its longevity and screen quality.
