As its name suggests, the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED is a 45-inch LG Curved OLED monitor with a 3440x1440p resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate. While OLED panels are often found in TVs or mobile devices, there are only a handful of OLED gaming monitors available on the market.

What makes this monitor even more rare is that it is an Ultrawide OLED monitor. The only other available option is the Alienware 34 Inch Curved QD-OLED Gaming monitor, which uses a Samsung panel. As previously mentioned, the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED uses an LG panel, but Corsair has opted for a manually-bend curved panel instead of a fixed curved panel. Additionally, there are useful ports such as a USB hub, audio jack, and OSD joystick port located on the front of the monitor for easy accessibility.

The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED has a DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1 port, and a Type-C port with a 30W power supply. Unfortunately, it does not have a VESA mounting option and has a limited range of movement, allowing only for tilting. This is notable as it likely serves to properly support the bendable screen. There is no height adjustment available.

In-Depth Review of the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45W QHD 240Hz OLED Monitor

The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED does not have RGB lighting or built-in speakers, which means you will need to add them on later. In terms of brightness, it can reach up to 438 nits of peak brightness in SDR mode, which is comparable to higher end IPS and VA panels. To better manage brightness, it does offer a brightness stabilization option in the OSD.

However, when watching HDR content, the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED can reach up to 530 nits of peak brightness, which falls short of expectations. Corsair has claimed that it can reach up to 1000 nits of brightness, but this is generally only found in most LG panels, which may be closer to the range of 800 to 1000 nits. Overall, the monitor’s brightness capabilities are satisfactory, though they may not meet the highest expectations.

As this is an OLED panel, the individual pixel turning off when displaying black color contrast on this display is excellent. The color gamut on this monitor may not match other high-end displays, but it is still good. The display is nicely calibrated and shows fantastic colors, with an sRGB profile available. The viewing angle on this monitor is excellent, and the average latency is 6.8.

The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED can be bent from a completely flat panel to an 800R curvature or anywhere in between without breaking. It even allows users to bend each side individually. In terms of connectivity, it has all the connections on the rear, which makes cable connection smooth and easy.

While some users may find the bendable feature gimmicky, there are certainly some real potential use cases for this monitor. It is definitely great when sitting close to the monitor and offers a great gaming experience no matter which game you are playing. Overall, the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED is a top-performing gaming monitor that offers a unique and immersive experience.

In addition to its excellent performance for gaming, the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED is also great for video editing, watching movies, or sitting with multiple people. All of these activities are enhanced by the unique and immersive experience offered by the bendable display. The bending process is manual, with handles located on each side of the display.

To adjust the screen, simply pull the side towards you and adjust it to your desired position. It does not require a lot of strength and you will hear a click when you reach the bending limit. The power consumption of this device is surprisingly low, averaging between 30 and 50 watts.

To prevent burn-in, this display has protection features such as pixel-shifting and automatic dimming when there is not much activity on the screen. Additionally, Corsair is offering a three-year warranty that includes protection against burn-in and a guarantee of zero dead pixels. This display has a pixel density of 83 PPI, which is relatively low by modern standards.

It is hoped that the company will release a higher resolution version of this device in the future, although this will likely require a more powerful GPU. The relatively low pixel density of this device may be a concern for some early adopters, as it could potentially lead to issues. However, it should be noted that Corsair has done an exceptional job in terms of build quality and durability with this monitor. Overall, this is a unique 240Hz ultra-wide OLED panel that offers a lot of potential.
