How much do you trust my boyfriend? If the answer, like me, is ‘almost too much’, then you’ll be interested in these Cyber Monday game monitor deals – one for the US and one for the UK. You see, my other half has been using Samsung ultrawide for a few years now and she absolutely swears by them. And since we share the same small office, I have also been very impressed.
More relevantly, our reviewer was a big fan of the curved Samsung Odyssey G9, and describes it as “utterly spectacular” thanks to how epic its 49-inch panel felt to play games on. In the UK you can grab one from Amazon for a penny under a grand, which is a total saving of £ 281 and the lowest price we have seen. Still not cheap, of course, but it’s a hell of a screen if you want to go curved.
The G9 uses a 240 Hz VA panel with both FreeSync and G-Sync support. The original resolution of 5120×1.440 is almost as many pixels in total as 4K and means you will need a powerful GPU to power this monster, but the result – specifically the almost enveloping sense of immersion – will be worth it. Despite having a plastic housing, the Odyssey looks incredibly sleek thanks to its glossy white finish and ‘Infinity Core’ LED lighting. “The overall effect is something resembling a large-budget sci-fi prop,” our husband wrote.
Some caveats: we did not love the HDR implementation and you should also know that this model was replaced by Odyssey Neo G9. For our American readers, there is $ 500 to be saved on the Neo, though it will still give you a brutal $ 1,999 back. It’s the lowest it’s sold for by Amazon, and the Neo comes with a crucial upgrade over its predecessor: a mini-LED backlight. “This thing is several orders of magnitude more sophisticated than before,” ours said review, adding that: “The Neo G9’s maximum brightness has doubled to 2,000 nits, which destroys the retina.”
