Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Review


Native resolution equivalent to twin 4K panels ; Impressively huge screen ; 240Hz peak refresh rate ; Excellent color gamut and accuracy ; Attractive design

Pricey ; Requires DisplayPort 2.1 to make full use of 240Hz refresh rate ; Most modern graphics cards can't push enough frames at native resolution to max out the G9's frame rates ; Small control stick makes OSD navigation difficult

Samsung's Odyssey Neo G9 is a gorgeous 57-inch widescreen mega-monitor sure to dazzle deep-pocketed gamers looking to maximize immersion. Just know: Only a bleeding-edge gaming PC with specific outputs can maximize its high-refresh-rate potential.

Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor Review


Huge, luxurious wide-screen panel ; Very bright ; Strong color performance

Expensive ; Input lag could be lower

Flight-sim and racing fans will go ga-ga over Samsung's Odyssey G9, a gaming monitor with a curved 49-inch screen that gets incredibly bright while delivering smooth motion and vivid color.

Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Review


The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is a super ultrawide gaming monitor with a 49 inch screen and 32:9 aspect ratio. It's an upgraded model of the Samsung Odyssey G9 that...

Excellent peak brightness in HDR. Exceptional gradient handling. Great contrast and good Mini LED local dimming for deep blacks. Stand offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments. Fantastic SDR peak brightness and decent reflection handling. Enough...

Narrow viewing angles. Disappointing black uniformity. Aggressive screen curve makes it hard to share screen. Issues with VRR at 60Hz.

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is great for most uses. The large, high-resolution screen provides enough space for multitasking and it gets bright enough to combat glare in a well-lit office space. It's good for content creators and media consumers because...

Samsung Odyssey G9 Review

Gets very bright in HDR. Decent contrast ratio. High refresh rate. Good reflection handling. Large screen size. Good response time. Outstanding gray uniformity.

Disappointing ergonomics. Sub-par viewing angles. Poor black uniformity. Terrible local dimming.

The Samsung Odyssey G9 is an overall good monitor. It has great gaming performance thanks to its low input lag, fast response time, and high refresh rate. Its large screen provides plenty of space to work comfortably, and it has a high pixel density to...

Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 review: Quantum Mini LED brings a better, brighter (and pricey) display


Our Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 review looks at the latest gaming monitor from the company. The Quantum Mini LED display easily improves upon last year's model.

Minor design changes like customizable game mode buttons ; Great colour and contrast with Mini LED panel ; 240Hz refresh rate great for gaming ; Brighter than ever ; Immersive 1000R curvature ; Dual HDMI 2.1 and a single DisplayPort 1.4 ; Very little,...

Some games still have issues with double QHD resolution (note: not a fault of the monitor) ; HDR on Windows is still hit and miss (note: not a fault of the monitor) ; LED ring could be brighter ; Pricey due to Mini LED technology

The original Samsung Odyssey G9 easily earned our Editor’s Choice award last year, and the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 easily claims that same honour for this year. The minor design changes and Quantum Mini LED panel only improve on last year’s model. If...

Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 (S49AG950) Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 (S49AG950) Review - The coolest gaming screen


We've hardly seen a cooler screen for games.

Fantastic bold images combined with high resolution, lightning fast response and an all-immersive super wide format. What's not to like?

Local dimming must be turned off during image processing, and then the contrast becomes somewhat dull.

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is a great gaming screen that takes performance to new heights. With the ultra-wide 32:9 format and a resolution of 5120 x 1440, the games are laser-sharp, and you get a much wider field of view in games that support the...

Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Review


The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is an updated revision of the impressive super-ultrawide we tested last year. This is a 49 curved VA monster monitor that now adds mini-LED backlighting for true HDR gaming.

Samsung Odyssey G9 monitor review: Ridiculous in the best possible way


The Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor packs the performance and features, but requires a few significant sacrifices.

Excellent color reproduction ; Display gets quite bright, especially in HDR mode ; Wide array of powerful gaming features ; Good performance overall

Large desktop footprint ; Extraordinarily expensive ; No integrated speakers ; Not all games make full use of unusual aspect ratio

All of this combines to maker the Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor a luxury purchase for a certain type of gamer with a certain set of gaming preferences and a certain layout of their gaming area. If that’s you, this is liable to be one of the best,...
