Product Overview

Odyssey G9 is Samsung's flagship 1000R-curved gaming monitor that won CES Innovation Award 2020. Measuring 49 inches, the Odyssey G9 sports a 32:9, Dual-QHD panel with 240 Hz refresh rate, low input lag, and G-SYNC / FreeSync compatibility.
Samsung has given the Odyssey G9 its coveted QLED full-array LED backlighting technology found in its high-end smart TVs that significantly improves the dynamic range and color reproduction.
For lower-priced 1000R-curved gaming monitors, Samsung also markets the Odyssey G7 (C27G75T, C32G75T) and Odyssey G5 (C27G55T, C32G55T) that progressively drops the ultra-wide aspect ratio, QLED backlighting, HDR support, and ultra-high refresh rate.

    Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
    The Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor is expensive. It offers an incredible (and huge) picture thanks to its class-leading brightness and contrast. It handles fast motion very smoothly, and while input lag is slightly higher than we like to see in a high-end gaming monitor, it's still quite low and should satisfy most gamers.
    Find the original article here.
    Pros
    • Class-leading brightness and contrast
    • Superb color accuracy
    • Excellent motion handling
    Cons
    • Input lag could be lower

    Sentiment Score 45%
    Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
    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 render text clearly. Unfortunately, it has sub-par ergonomics and narrow viewing angles, which isn't ideal for sharing content or playing co-op games.

    Pros
    • Large screen and high resolution
    • Low input lag
    • High pixel density
    • Wide color gamut
    Cons
    • Sub-par viewing angles
    • Mediocre contrast ratio
    • Terrible local dimming feature

    Reviewers from t3 have found the following***:
    Odyssey G9 is the best ultra-wide gaming monitor on the market. Its 109ppi, 5120x1440 resolution and 240Hz refresh rate will require a serious gaming machine to fulfil its potential. PBP (picture-by-picture) mode also deserves a shoutout, and should interest streamers, YouTube tutorial obsessives and anyone gaming with friends on video chat.

    Pros
    • G-sync and FreeSync
    • Bright, vibrant screen
    • Excellent PBP (picture-by-picture) mode
    Cons
    • Very heavy
    • No built-in speakers

    The Samsung Odyssey G9 is an absolute masterclass when it comes to productivity. The wide field of vision helps boost immersion in games like Assassins Creed Odyssey. Samsung has also included built-in picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture support. The 5,120 x 1,440 display resolution isn't quite 4K, but it's close.

    Pros
    • Gorgeous design
    • Built-in picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture support
    • Great value for money
    Cons
    • Expensive for a gaming monitor

    Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
    Odyssey G9's gaming-focused features were a delightful plus in almost every scenario. Its 1ms gray-to-gray response time kept our interactions in games snappy. The large amount of space is not universally well utilized. If you have a high-end graphics card, a spare $1,700 or so, an excess of desk space (or a sizable hunk of wall), you probably won't be disappointed.
    Find the original article here.
    Pros
    • Sleek, premium design
    • Gorgeous 4K display
    • High refresh rate (up to 240 Hz)
    • Comfortable keyboard and mouse
    Cons
    • Expensive for what you get

    The 49-Inch Odyssey G9 ships in its Custom picture mode and does not require calibration. Normal color temp is right on D65, and gamma mode 1 is perfectly in line with 2.2 spec. Color gamut accuracy is also excellent for both DCI-P3, plus sRGB if you choose the sRGB mode.

    The Samsung Odyssey G9 is one of the most ambitious gaming monitors on the market. The 49-inch diagonal dominates any desk, and it’s paired with a 32:9 aspect ratio, a vast 5120 x 1440 resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate and the 1000R curve. Build quality is rock-solid, and the panel has two DisplayPort connectors, an HDMI port and two USB 3.0 ports. It works with AMD and Nvidia graphics cards and delivers butter-smooth performance in the fastest games thanks to the latest syncing technology.

    Pros

    Cons
