Samsung's 32-inch G7 takes its dimensions to a whole new level. The stand is huge, and the curve brings the ends of the monitor seriously far forward. The G7's 1000R curve makes games incredibly immersive. Even though its color reproduction is impressively good, the resolution isn't high enough to work on.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Odyssey G7 is one of the best gaming monitors in its class. It has a 1000R screen that has a tight enough curve to make Beyonce envious. You're also getting adaptive sync support and compatibility for both Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. The HDR support isn't as good as you'd find on a Samsung TV, but it does noticeably well with effective selective dimming.
