Summary

The Samsung Odyssey G7 marks a number of firsts in the world of gaming monitors. It's the first monitor we've seen to feature a dramatic 1000R curvature and the first with a VA (Vertical Alignment) panel that boasts a 1ms GTG (grey to grey) response time. The deep blacks produced by the VA panel, along with the vivid colors and high brightness, serve to drag you further into the game. The wraparound effect created by the 1000R curve and large 32in panel adds further to the sense of immersion.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The 32-inch Samsung Odyssey G7 is an excellent gaming monitor with a curve that pulls you into games like no other display does. The G-Sync flicker issue, though, is a difficult flaw to overlook. Samsung should take responsibility for this problem and either come out with a fix, issue a recall, or remove the G- Sync certification and reduce the price.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is a great overall monitor. It has amazing gaming performance because of its 240Hz refresh rate, outstanding response time, and FreeSync support. It's a good choice for content creators or for watching movies as it can display deep blacks. Unfortunately, it's not ideal for sharing your screen with coworkers due to its narrow viewing angles.

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Odyssey G7 C32G75T is a significant upgrade in image quality and user experience. It has a massive colour gamut that this panel can offer, where DCI-P3 was represented by 95%. It is both FreeSync and G-Sync capable, allowing for fluid frame rates up to the maximum 240Hz. As it has a 10-bit panel with Quantum Dot, it can produce much better colour representation, if configured correctly.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent colour gamut
  • Excellent build quality
  • Excellent software menu system
Cons[**]
  • No sRGB mode
  • Limited adjustment controls

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The C32G75T's extreme curve is a real asset, not only for gaming, but for general use too. The height of a 32:9 screen really draws you in while providing a more familiar shape for workday tasks. The P3 gamut coverage is enough that you will see a significant improvement over an sRGB monitor.

Pros[**]
  • Super-fast gaming performance
  • Extremely accurate color
  • Wide viewing angles
Cons[**]
  • No local dimming
  • No HDR support
