Samsung Odyssey G9 Monitor Full Review | Is it worth the Price? | Techronicle

Samsung Odyssey G9 Front View Techronicle

The Samsung Odyssey g9 49-inch ultra wide gaming monitor is ridiculous in so many ways so everything about this monitor is to the limits.
First of all it comes in a box that is insane and then it's a 49-inch diagonal monitor so it is the biggest monitor i've ever used and then it's at a 5120 by 1440 resolution so 5k wide which doesn't make it the first monitor of that resolution but i do believe this is the first one we've seen at a 240hz refresh rate with HDR 1000 certification thanks to QLED, so it gets crazy bright if you need it.

Specifications and Design

Samsung Odyssey G9 Ports Techronicle

This Supermassive, Supersexy monitor has a 1millisecond response time
It supports Nvidia G-sync over display port 1.4 and it's massively curved, there's different levels of the amount of curve you can have this monitor is what's called a 1000 radius curve which just means basically if you put these monitors into a circle until they all connected the radius of that circle would be a thousand centimeters which without any context doesn't really mean anything but what they're trying to tell you with that number is it is very very curved around that center point and so it sticks out a lot from the base as a result apparently the curve matches the human eye the bottom line is the experience you get sitting in front of this thing right in the middle right up close using it and especially gaming on it is one of maximum immersion.

Ive never had a monitor get into my peripheral so much and then it checks most of the rest of the other boxes from a high-end monitor, there are 2 display ports, 1 HDMI and a USB hub and audio jack around the back there displayport is definitely the best way to get the most out of this monitor I also kind of wish there was USB  type-C Samsung as long as we're trying to check all the boxes but it doesn't have that.

And then around the glossy white back you can turn on the RGB lights in the middle and this thing glows. It's pretty sick, it's kind of like this infinity void even though you never have to really look at the back of your monitor at least you know it's there and hey maybe you get a little spill over onto the wall behind it but what's actually nice about this back besides the cable management is that there is a headphone holder because even though it is kind of hard to reach behind a huge monitor like this it's nice that they thought about it and put something back there because when you have this monitor on your desk it's really hard to have anything else on your desk so that is the price you pay for this huge vast expanse of a screen

Is it even worth Buying?

Now the obvious thing you are thinking is,is it really worth it to buy this massive curved monitor
Here the price point is crucial thing This Samsung Odyssey g9 49-inch ultra wide gaming monitor will cost you $1600 bucks which is definitely expensive for a monitor.
It costs more than the equivalent of like buying two separate 27 inch 240 hertz monitors but I mean the bad ass factor of having it all in one unit, the lack of a bezel in the middle, the HDR certification, the QLED, the image, the curve it's kind of hard to to match this.

For me personally like i've gamed on this a bit i'm i've never been a huge ultra wide person I need the vertical pixels when most of the work i'm doing requires vertical scrolling
So ultra wides are ultra wide they've never really been very tall so 1440p not enough pixels vertically for me but for gaming i mean this thing is incredible and that's why it's actually dope.
