The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Monitor Changes Gaming

Gaming is an expensive hobby, especially on PCs. Costs can very quickly add up, particularly when it comes to monitors. A perfect case in point is Samsung’s incredible Odyssey Neo G9 curved display that cleverly matches the shape of the human eye.
Measuring 49 inches across, the massive Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor from Samsung costs just a penny under $2,500. For that, though, the display promises to quite literally change gaming for those willing and able to spend the money. That includes a new era of immersion, spellbinding visual quality, and world-class performance, among other perks.
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is the follow-up to the already top-rated Odyssey G9. However, various cutting-edge additions have, Samsung says, elevated it to a point where it now truly revolutionizes the gaming experience. It’s a bold claim in a market with plenty of impressive sub-$200 gaming monitors.
The Odyssey Neo G9 has now been around since late last summer. However, does the vast 49-inch monitor continue to live up to expectations? We delve into each of the areas outlined above for a closer look.

A New Era of Immersion With the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9’s fully wrap-around view offers buyers a ticket to a new era of immersion. Gamers across the board can then lose themselves in the Odyssey Neo G9’s 49 inches, delving into whatever virtual worlds they choose.
Essentially, the Odyssey Neo G9 from Samsung promises to double gamers’ discoveries with what’s effectively comparable or superior to two existing, high-end, side-by-side monitors. The result is a more encompassing view with maximum space to take in every inch of the action.

Spellbinding Visual Quality

Almost $2,500 is a lot to spend on any piece of tech, and certainly a monitor – especially one that’s as focused as the gaming-led Samsung Odyssey Neo G9. Yet, for those happy to put up the cash, Samsung promises what it calls spellbinding visual quality from its flagship display.
Mini-LED technology that achieves next-generation depth delivers exceptional picture quality. Crucially, in the format offered by the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, it also puts the mammoth 49-inch monitor in a class all of its own.

World-Class Performance

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 also reportedly boasts world-class performance. And having been hands-on with the Odyssey Neo G9 after poring over its figures, there’s no reason to doubt that. All gamers know that, when it comes to computing performance, even the slightest disadvantage can mean the difference between winning and losing.
The Odyssey Neo G9, then, puts buyers at a massive advantage. A 240hz refresh rate, lightning-fast 1ms response times, and fully adaptive G-Sync and FreeSync Premium Pro support represent just the tip of the iceberg. Elsewhere, buyers also get:
  • Local dimming zones
  • Peak 12-bit black levels
  • Maximum available HDR levels
  • 420 nits typical brightness
  • Low 2ms input lag
  • Picture-by-picture
  • Picture-in-picture
  • Auto Source Switch+
  • 1000R screen curvature
  • Infinity Core lighting
  • Swivel and tilt adjustment
  • VESA monitor arm compatibility

Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Warranty

Whether the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9’s $2,500 price tag is justifiable will come down to personal opinion. It certainly does everything advertised in terms of changing gaming, as Samsung says.
