  • Excellent response time
  • Mediocre contrast ratio

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[***]:
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 Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
Samsung's 32-inch Odyssey G7 is all about extremes, and that's what makes it one of the best gaming monitors. The C32G75T's extreme curve is a real asset, not only for gaming, but general use too. Native contrast is comfortably over 2,000:1, and Samsung includes a local dimming option in the on-screen display.

Pros[**]
  • 240 Hz, Adaptive-Sync, DisplayHDR 600 and DisplayPort 1.4
  • Bright, color-accurate 240 Hz panel
  • Local dimming and dynamic contrast

  • Lacks HDR support
