The 12 Largest Computer Monitors in 2023
The best options at extra-large form factors
We updated this article in June to cover some of the latest releases on the market. Our top pick, the Asus PG65UQ, remains the largest monitor by some margin but is now rarely in stock and arguably not as good as the other picks we’ve highlighted. I’d encourage anyone serious about buying a large monitor to go for one of the other choices instead of waiting out for the Asus PG65UQ.
When it comes to work and PC gaming, there’s nothing quite like using a massive monitor.
Resolutions have climbed in recent years to the point that the best monitor manufacturers have begun offering some seriously huge options that still have suitable DPIs for a PC setup.
But the biggest monitor doesn’t always mean the best quality.
So, today’s feature is here to not just here to guide you through the largest computer monitors, but also the ones worth buying after my many reviews through the world of monitors (with different uses, sizes and budgets in mind).

Largest Computer Monitor: Asus ROG Swift PG65UQ
2023 update: The PG65UQ is still the largest monitor available, but I’ve seen it run into a bunch of stock issues recently; it’s rarely been available.
With that said, as my review highlights, this monitor may be the largest, but it’s not the best choice for most.
My strong recommendation? Check out the other picks in this list; if you need do need a 60″+ monitor, the OLED TV is a great replacement, if you want a traditional monitor, the super ultrawide picks below are fantastic.
We’ll start by saying for many users (business/gaming focussed alike) we don’t think this size is necessarily the best pick-up, which is why we’ve focussed on 43″-55″ monitors in most of this feature.
We also think that our next OLED TV choice will likely suit a majority of PC users better for far less cost if you do want an enormous size.
With that said, no list of the largest computer monitors would be complete without the PG65UQ.
Boasting an incredible 65″ size alongside its 4K resolution, DisplayHDR1000 capability, 144hz refresh rate & 95% DCI-P3 & 4ms GTG response time. The PG65UQ has some fantastic capability not just as a gaming monitor, but also as one suitable for media & general use.
With G-Sync ultimate support, there’s great onboard functionality for avoiding v-sync/ghosting issues; this is integral for a display of this refresh rate/size, where screen tearing and other common issues are even more visible if no high-end screen sync technology is in place.
The build quality is also everything I would hope for in a premium display. With a sturdy design that feels built for longevity, not to mention incredibly thin bezels and a subtlely tasteful ASUS logo illuminating underneath.
So with all that said, why do I suggest something slightly smaller?
Well, although the PG65UQ is a beast, we assume that most reading this list will be looking for a PC monitor for gaming, media, or business/general use.
While it fits nearly all the specs perfectly, there is one problem; the 2160p resolution may be a lot, but at 65-inches, it begins to slightly show with a lacking DPI at this enormous screen size.
If you’re in the market for a premium monitor, we expect you’ll be after sharp text and crisp game detail even while sitting relatively close. If this is the case, our 43″-55″ monitors are the better choice, boasting the DPI we think is more suited for a PC experience.
If, however, you’re primarily after a monitor for gaming from afar with a console, then that issue is largely negated.
But there is another lacking area for you; there is no HDMI 2.1 output.
HDMI 2.1 introduces significantly better bandwidth rates and empowers you to play at high refresh rates/resolutions on PS5/Xbox Series X. To buy a monitor of this caliber without it seems wasteful for console gamers (if you’re focussed on PC gaming from afar with DisplayPort, then we have no qualms, and this is a great choice).
If you are in that console-gamer category, or a PC gamer who isn’t opposed to an OLED TV as a primary monitor, we would instead highly recommend the LG CX OLED pick a little further down.
For a significantly smaller price tag, you are getting an HDMI 2.1 display that excels in picture quality, contrast, while also being put together to counter the usual complaints about using a TV as a monitor (i.e. very high refresh rate and low latency).
Although this all sounds like a negative take, we do in fact, really like the PG65UQ. We just think the next pick trumps it in a majority of ways.
If your singular goal is the largest computer monitor possible and you would like to avoid an OLED TV for your setup, then this is the choice for you.
Its DPI may be a tad low, but with its fantastic HDR, color, and refresh rate, it’s still a fantastic gaming monitor and beautifully encapsulates so much of what you want in a big format gaming display/BFGD.
Our Rating: 8/10
Largest OLED TV for Gaming or Work: LG OLED55CXPUA
I alluded in my review above that for console gamers focused on a premium experience, this OLED TV choice will be better for you than the other options on the list.
That said, this isn’t just for console gamers; if you’re not a user concerned about the effects of OLED burn-in, I think this is arguably the best choice for nearly any user after an extra-large monitor.
This includes those after something for media, general use, or business work. I think you’d be pleasantly surprised by what’s on offer here even if you were intending to avoid TVs.
If you haven’t experienced an OLED before, it’s hard to describe just how incredible the endless contrast ratio can look versus traditional LEDs. With the deepest blacks, and an incredible color range, the picture quality available here is the best on the list.
For general/work use, the sharp contrast is perfect for displaying anything from documents to media, to trading/production software in crisp detail.
Now, the worry with a TV for use with gaming and as a PC monitor replacement is its latency/refresh rate.
But LG has impressively innovated a massive 4k screen that boasts 120hz, G-Sync/Freesync support, and response times as low as 1ms.
I really can’t articulate just how good you can expect your content to look on this screen. These secondary specs essentially completely negate what often makes TVs worse than monitors for PC users.
And for console gamers, this TV supports HDMI 2.1 which is integral to gaming on high refresh rates/resolutions with the latest console generation.
The screen is amazing in lots of ways, but this alone is why I rate this LG TV as superior to any extra-large monitor for console use.
Whether you’re focused on immersive titles, competitive gaming, or non-gaming content, the LG CX ticks pretty much every box.
Size-wise, the largest available is as high as 77-inches, larger than the biggest PC monitor available today.
For most users, I would recommend the 55-inch (at a stretch 65-inch) if you plan to be up close and use it as a monitor replacement due to the decreasing DPI at the top sizes (if you plan to mainly consume content from further away, however, any size is great!).
You may have also noticed that compared to a similar PC monitor like the Alienware 55-inch AW5520QF, this LG TV runs at around half the price.
So, with all of this excitement, there is one caution to mention: OLED TVs carry the risk of burn-in, and the LG CX is no exception.
Burn-in can occur when certain pixels (especially bright colors) are set in the same position for a long period of time over many usages.
Due to the way OLED TVs are created, this can create a slightly transparent permanent “etching” of those pixels.
For TV/console gamers, the issue is minimal as your content will always be moving. The main concern here is when used as a PC monitor, most notably the Windows 10 logo in the bottom left is the main risk for minor burn-in. Or, if you’re a gamer focussed on a single title (e.g. a MOBA or MMO with a static UI) you may carry some small risk.
I’ll be clear though. In my experience, this is a very minor risk (I wouldn’t be featuring it if it was a more emergent issue). Burn-in is reminiscent of plasma TVs; yes it’s possible, but as long as you’re not leaving your monitor on all the time with the exact same pixel arrangement in certain areas (i.e. turning off/running a screensaver during idle moments) then the immense cost saving of the LG TV over the more expensive monitors makes it more than worth it.
Finally, while not straying away from the traditional TV design conventions, the LG CX looks very sharp, understated, sturdily built, and incredibly thin (it’s heavy at larger sizes, but still capable of VESA mounting).
So, with everything said, the LG CX doesn’t just offer the largest PC monitor replacement available with an incredible picture but also does so at a fraction of the price compared to the enormous monitor offerings.
If you can get on board with using a TV as your monitor/gaming solution, I think you’ll love the LG CX.
2023 update: With its great price in mind, the CX series is still our top pick for the best large gaming TV in 2023. That said, LG has released an updated C1 version. The models are fairly similar, with the C1 having some updated software and an improved game mode setting that will take off a few extra milliseconds of latency (nice, but not essential at all). If you are extra serious about having the largest monitor, the C1 comes in an 83-inch version (it’s a very steep increase in price, however, so only consider it if you have a huge budget).
Our Rating: 10/10
Widest Computer Monitor: Samsung Odyssey G9
Moving away from the largest 16:9 screens, Samsung instead positioned itself in the market with a focus on super ultrawide screens.
This naming convention may sound like a gimmick, but it refers to the 32:9 aspect ratio of the Odyssey G9. With a 5k resolution (5120 x 1440), this 49-inch monitor is the size of 2 1440p 27-inch screens in 1.
As far as work, general use, and other typical PC applications go, the utility of this is obvious; super ultrawide screens are perfect for productivity and multitasking.
While I recommend a Dell 49″ 32:9 screen further below that’s tailored for work, I think the Odyssey G9 is more than capable of a fantastic business use setup (and is notably cheaper than the other offering). I’ve had the chance to work on it in a limited setup and it didn’t leave me wanting in any way.
But it’s gaming where the Odyssey G9 really shines.
With a 240hz refresh rate, 1ms GTG response time, G-Sync/FreeSync Premium Pro support, HDR1000 capability & fantastic colors through its QLED IPS panel, the specs for gaming are incredible.
With the plethora of titles that support its UWQHD resolution. Playing immersive games in a 5K UW resolution is an experience that is hard to describe. I love that the G9 also boasts all the specs perfect for more competitive/esports-focused users.
This is also the largest curved monitor available, with 1000R curvature. This rating is the strongest curve you see on mainstream offerings, suitable for users after a real extra layer of immersion (and with the wide aspect ratio, the G9 feels like it engulfs you in your content; it’s quite a sight to behold.
Note: although we are discussing the G9; its 120hz brother, the CRG9, is a fantastic offering at around 15% less in price. Do we think the 240Hz refresh rate is worth the extra price for gamers? 100% But if you are price-focused, the CRG9 is still a premium gaming monitor in its own right (and if you are solely non-gaming focussed, it’s the better choice).
I’m simply floored by what an incredible offering the G9 is. No other screen encapsulates the kind of innovation I would want from a high-end monitor and it’s just such a joy to consume content on.
This isn’t just the widest PC monitor, but the best out of the competitors in the super ultrawide space.
If you prefer the immersion/productivity possibilities of 32:9 over a larger 16:9 screen, then you’re going to really appreciate what this Samsung offering can do.
Our Rating: 9.75/10
Largest Monitor for Work: Dell U4919DW
As much as I gush about the Odyssey G9, there are certainly some other fantastic super ultrawide monitors available.
The U4919DW is the other one I think is worth highlighting. Designed as both the largest & widest monitor for business/general use.
With its 5120×1440 resolution & fantastic contrast/color gamut, the display looks as crisp as you would hope for anything from spreadsheets to video calls.
The real question is if you will prefer this to the CRG9/G9, and that comes down to a few areas.
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the U4919DW boasts significantly less curvature with a rating of 3800R.
This has been designed because Dell expects business users to share content more and this curvature is more accommodating to larger viewing angles. A flatter screen can be slightly more ergonomic for “flat content” like spreadsheets (where games can benefit from the dramatic curve of the G9).
The monitor also proudly boasts its KVM capabilities, which allows you to connect 2 PCs at the same time to the monitor (the G9 can also do this, but the instructions are a little less clear because it isn’t marketed for work).
Not only is the picture great, but it’s also designed to accommodate business/general use (while the Samsung CRG9 is preset for gaming, you’d need to tinker with the settings to get an optimized screen for work purposes).
The thing that disappoints us with the U4919DW compared to the Samsung offering above is its price.
It’s certainly a high-end monitor worthy of a premium budget; but the Odyssey CRG9, with its more impressive specs across the board, is cheaper.
With that in mind, we think it’s worth going for the CRG9 over this Dell pick in a lot of cases, even if you are not interested in its gaming capabilities.
That said, if easy KVM functionality, no picture-setup requirements, less curvature & better viewing angles are important to you (and gaming isn’t), the U4919DW is your best large monitor choice.
