Description

The Samsung Odyssey G9 QLED Gaming is without a doubt the flagship among gaming monitors. With the enormous 49-inch ultrawide screen, you become completely absorbed in your favorite games, especially since it has a curve of 1000R. Samsung combines QLED and HDR 100, which makes for a clear gaming experience with realistic lighting and high contrasts. The Odyssey G9 has a high refresh rate of 240Hz. That means you can play even the most fast-paced shooters smoothly. And thanks to the 1ms response time, you won't have any issues with ghosting. The ultrawide screen supports G-Sync as well as FreeSync Premium. This allows you to prevent lags, regardless of which video card you have. Even from up close, your games are razor-sharp thanks to the WQHD resolution. The DCI-P3 color space and 10-bit color depth provide a broader color representation. The Odyssey has adjustable LED lighting at the back. You can adjust the monitor in height so you're comfortable during long gaming sessions.

Note: make sure the drivers of this monitor are up-to-date to prevent ghosting while gaming. You can update them via the settings menu of Windows or Mac. Contact our product support hub below for a more extensive advice article.

Ignore your bank balance, ignore your girlfriend, buy this s

  • amazing image
  • High refresh rate
  • Cable duct somewhat narrow

Well, what can I say other than that this is the ultimate display! This exceeds all 2 or 3 screen setups. Not seeing edges between screens makes more difference than I thought beforehand. I used to have a setup with 3 screens, after a while you didn't really notice those edges anymore. And yet this is much better and more pleasant. The colors are very good in my opinion. Not the very best HDR you will find, but still very beautiful. I like the color experience better than on my 2 year old Samsung TV. If you want to work productively, this screen is the best you will find. With DisplayFusion you can virtually divide the screen into multiple screens. This really works very nicely. If you think you're short on space, combine the screen with an MX-Master so that you can swipe up and down between multiple Windows desktops with your mouse. Building the screen was simple and can be done on your own. Although I can still recommend having 2 helping hands because the screen is heavy. (oh, crazy with 49") The back-light (can be switched off) is also nice if you work in the dark, so I have significantly less trouble with my eyes in the evening. The menu to change settings could have been better. Yet you will find everything in it. The 3 adjustable profiles ensure that you can easily switch between settings. I think there are only two reasons why you wouldn't want this screen. 1. is that for whatever reason you might want EVEN better colors, despite this screen being really great already. And reason 2 is that this screen is simply pricey. Still, I can't imagine that you wouldn't find this screen worth the money once you've used it. Small point of attention: If you want to be able to play new games properly, get a 2080Ti. You might just get by with a 2080, but not for long. All in all a real recommend for every nerd ;)

Good screen, unfortunately not suitable for office use

  • Screen is nicely designed
  • Build quality
  • Not suitable for office use

I bought the screen for office use. That was unfortunately a mistake. It is a very nice screen, with very good contrast, brightness, nice colors and good black values, no doubt very suitable for gaming and multimedia, but unfortunately text is not displayed sharply. Don't get me wrong, text is perfectly legible, but there's just a blurry edge to it. I've tried all possible settings on the screen itself and in Windows, but unfortunately I never got the text completely sharp. Some online research has taught me that this is probably caused by the sub-pixel layout that Samsung uses in its VA panels. Some people can live with it, others can't. Unfortunately I belong to the latter category... A few hours on the internet will probably not be a problem, but 8 to 10 hours of office use is unfortunately too much of a good thing.

Despite the recall from Samsung, still recommended

  • Image takes up almost your entire field of view
  • Brightness at 20% is already excellent, 100% replaces the solarium
  • G-Sync flickering image, hopefully will be fixed with a driver update

After being out of the market for a while due to QA issues (loose display of the housing) suddenly back in stock at Coolblue and so I took the gamble. Unfortunately, the box does not show whether these have been rechecked, but my copy is free of backlight issues and dead pixels. There is only a hair-thin light leak in the housing at the top left of an inch, which you only see in the dark and if you go looking for it (and I mean really looking). Before the recall I saw pictures of screens where the display was half detached from the housing, so this is of a different order. I read on forums that many recent deliveries still have that light leak, but for me that is no reason to return it for the time being, especially since I don't have any issues further in the picture, which would be really disturbing. Furthermore, this monitor is a feast for the eyes (not at 100% brightness, then you are looking at a radiant heater and you can feel it). After a few hours you are used to the size and the curvature and only notice how ideal this is; from every viewing angle you have the same distance to the screen, within games you have a lot of overview, and for work you can open 3 to 4 windows next to each other. I wouldn't recommend Word or Excel over the full width, then it will look curved. But you can't do that across multiple screens with a multi-monitor setup. I still have some flickering with geforce on and strong ghosting when the response time is accelerated, but that sort of thing will be solved with a firmware update and/or Nvidia driver.

Really fantastic, worth every euro

  • Beautiful screen, beautiful design, beautiful product
  • Very satisfying to watch, especially if you've been used to 2 separate screens for years
  • When there is little space where the display will be placed, it is challenging to install, partly thanks to the fact that the screen is 15 kg

I have always worked with two displays, this display opens up a world for the gamer and video editor

Brilliant for gaming AND productivity!

  • Brilliant for gaming
  • Brilliant for work
  • Viewing angles

I initially bought the monitor for gaming, but I also regularly work at home and I really like the monitor for that. You can download software from Samsung (called Easy Settings) that allows you to split this monitor into (three) virtual windows. Then you can easily put 3 windows side by side. The monitor supports Picture-by-Picture, which allows you to display 2 inputs simultaneously on the monitor. For example, your laptop and your PC. You have the choice of distribution 2x 16:9 OR 1x 21:9 and 1x 11:9. Unfortunately, the monitor only has 10 (vertical) backlight zones, during normal use you will not be bothered by this, but with HDR material you will suffer a lot from backlight bleed (gray image which should be black). I was impressed with watching an HDR movie, although I never do that on a monitor. The monitor is curved, depending on how close you are to the monitor, you will suffer from the limited viewing angles of a VA panel on the side and the color red in particular discolours.

Colours, speed and large screen that can do it all.

  • Beautiful VA panel
  • Freesync2
  • Price

I had 2 separate screens. 1 TN 144hz 1440p panel and 1 IPS 60hz 4k panel, this because I was absolutely not against the input and the screen stutters during the game. But for movies and photos I can appreciate the beautiful colors of a 4k IPS screen. This screen has replaced both these panels, where the responsive freesync (works perfectly with nvidia gpu) 120hz ensures that I can play perfectly on it and because it is an HDR VA QLED screen the colors are even better than my previous 4K IPS panel . And then I haven't even mentioned the biggest advantage, which is how much screen space this screen offers! The only drawback I can mention is the price, otherwise this screen is perfect in my opinion.

Great with caveats

  • Resolution
  • Refresh rate
  • Cable position

This is all I was looking for in one screen: High resolution, ultrawide and good image quality. Ideal to replace multiple monitors with 1 screen. Perfect for office and gaming :) This way I can easily open 3 tabs side by side. Unfortunately, Windows support for virtual split screens isn't great. This makes it a bit of a search to easily split applications. Note: for fullscreen apps, such as games, it is only possible not to occupy the full screen in windowed mode. Note2: Make sure you have displayport 1.4 with compression on your computer. (Currently only with RTX cards and limited CPUs) Otherwise you can't use the maximum resolution and refresh rate!

Top monitor, good mid-range price-quality ratio

  • Easy to install
  • Good 1440p image quality
  • Can't turn off the standby lamp, so not nice for the evening when you want to sleep

Top product bought this when it came out, first wanted to buy the older samsung gamimg monitor but this one is much better for the same price with the 1ms instead of 4ms and 1440p instead of 1080p.
