  • Amazing monitor with countless flaws
    Reviewed by Don - October 17, 2021

    This monitor is by far the most controversial monitor on the ultrawide community. It has the highest refresh rate with that resolution, it has mini-led with hdr support. Its hardware supports everything they advertised, However, the software does not. This monitor is known to have huge quality control issue, some of the problem such as scanline is still not fixed from the previous model Odyssey G9. The advertised peak brightness of 2000 nits is simply not achievable in any videogame I tested with the latest firmware update 1007 Buying this monitor is completely up to your trust on weather Samsung will fix all its flaws with new firmware updates, knowing the previous model still have some widely common issue that hasn't been addressed. It also requires you to constantly check Samsung website for the latest firmware update.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Do not buy this monitor
    Reviewed by Brian - October 12, 2021

    This monitor is an absolute joke and shines a light on Samsung's horrible QA and QC processes. I purchased this monitor even after knowing the HDR debacle that was highlighted on Hardware Unboxed's youtube video. Why? Because I've found HDR to be very hit or miss. It all depends on the implementation on more often than not, especially at launch, game titles have very poor HDR on PC. I was however very interested in the contrast boost that even SDR would get with over two thousand local dimming zones, so the HDR issue wasn't a problem for me. However, within five minutes of firing up a racing simulator on a night course I noticed this very obnoxious flickering with these interlaced lines that would show up every few seconds, completely ruining my immersion. This was my first monitor of this caliber that I have ever purchased so at first glance I thought that maybe it was something happening in the software and that the boosted contrast was highlighting the flickering. Nope, a few google searches show that this is not only a problem with the Neo G9, but this is a bug that was also in the original Odyssey!!!!! Please take a moment to let it sink in that a reported bug, that does show up in real world scenarios, that is completely immersion breaking, did not get fixed in the second iteration of this ultra premium "gaming" monitor. Many people have reported changing this setting or that, turning on the VRR setting and whatnot. In some instances it helps slightly, but the issue never goes away no matter what software setting, or display port or even with an HDMI 2.1 cable. Some people report moving from 240hz to 120hz helps, and it does help a little - but the problem is still there. Moving from 120hz down to 60hz helps even more, but again the problem remains. So I have to ask what is the point of paying for a 240hz monitor with a high contrast ratio if: a) you have to hamstring yourself and limit the fps to 60hz just to get the most minimal effect of flickering and deinterlacing, and b) the contrast counts for nothing because in darker scenes is where the flickering is most prominent. If you spend 10-15 minutes on google and check some reddit posts you will find that many people report speaking with Samsung techs and this is a fault with the panel and can not be fixed with a firmware update. So this is something you will have to live with for the entire life of the monitor. I called Samsung up on the first day of receiving the monitor and they wanted me to ship it to their tech centre for repairs (from which I understand will not help anyways). Again, please let it sink in that a $3k monitor after taxes needed to go out for repair ON DAY ONE. This is completely unacceptable and I will never purchase another Samsung product of any kind - cell phone, TV or whatever. This shows that there is some fault somewhere along the QA and QC line and for a product of this price I expect much much more than this. If you're considering purchasing this monitor at the very least please watch Hardware Unboxed's follow-up video to their review showcasing the HDR issue, and google Odyssey G9 flickering/scanline and read up on the problem. The problem can be reproduced without fail by viewing a simple webpage with a black background such as: https://rog.asus.com/wallpapers/ Make sure your scaling in Windows is set to 100% and not higher or lower to test this problem.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
