Product Overview

Odyssey G5 C32G55T is the entry-level alternative to higher-end 1000R gaming monitors from Samsung. There is also a 27-inch variant with much of the same feature set and design elements.
Featuring a 1000R-curved display that delivers 144Hz refresh rate, the Odyssey G5 offers an immersive gaming experience. At QHD, it packs 1.7 times the pixel of a FHD display, allowing more details to be viewed. AMD FreeSync Premium features adaptive sync technology which reduces screen tearing, stutter, and input latency.
For more feature-rich alternatives, Samsung also markets the Odyssey G7 (C27G75T and C32G75T) and Odyssey G9 (C49G95T), which progressively adds higher refresh rate, full-array LED backlighting, and ultra-wide aspect ratio.
