These are the best ultrawide monitors we've found for PC. The panels listed cater to different needs and requirements for gaming or productivity. When looking at ultrawide panels, you should be looking at the resolution, port availability, as well as refresh rates, and response times to pick the right one for you. We're partial to feature-rich displays, so if we had to pick just one, the best for screen real estate would be the LG 38WN95C-W. It's big, bold, and can even charge your laptop.

But if you want the most screen real estate possible, the Philips Brilliance 499P9H would be an excellent runner-up. This 49-inch panel from Philips is stunning. It comes rocking Thunderbolt support, an sRGB color accuracy rating of over 91%, and can also provide power to a laptop. There are plenty of ports on the rear of the display, allowing you to not only be more productive but enjoy movies and games too.
