Insane Real Estate
Silky Smooth Framerates
Your Productivity, Doubled.
I bought this to use for work mainly and as claimed by Prism+, this is indeed a multi-tasker’s wet dream! The X490 does not have a built in KVM switch but I do not need that as I am using a Logitech MX Keys + Master 3 combo with the excellent Logitech Flow software – a superior solution for people controlling multiple machines. Controlling my PC desktop on the left and copying files across to the Macbook on the right of the screen is as seamless as can be. I do some video editing and the colours are accurate out of the box for almost all users, otherwise just download the ICC profile from the website you are all set for creative work.
During the evening when the workload lessens, I chuck the Mac aside and play Hearthstone on one side of the screen and whilst waiting for my turn, I am browsing, chatting or handling light tasks on the other side.
I played FPS games in HDR with the room darkened and the contrast is fantastic with brightness only set to 80%. Uniformity and gradient handling is excellent edge to edge. Using a Nvidia 2070 Super in GSync mode (yes it works by setting the monitor to turn on FreeSync), the experience is so smooth and immersive, the next level will be with VR!
The only caveat is that if you aren’t in the market for one, you seriously shouldn’t try out this super ultrawide at your friend’s place, cos once you have ascended, there is frankly no going back…
Will be a 5 star if the first set did not come crack. Even though, PRISM swap it without question, so kudos for that 👍🏾
Really happy with my purchase and the quality of the monitor. The real estate of the screen is amazing for both gaming and work. The X490 exceeded my expectations and PRISM+ delivered what they promised. My wife got the W240 to complement her work needs and is also very pleased with the purchase. Will definitely recommend buying if anyone is looking for a monitor.
