Huge 49-inch Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor is $ 400 off Amazon


The Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor is currently on sale for $ 999 on Amazon, down $ 400 from its original price of $ 1,399.

The 49-inch 5120 x 1440 monitor features a fast 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and supports both G-Sync and FreeSync 2. As noted in our review of l ‘Odyssey G9, the curved monitor offers an immersive gaming experience, which extends around your entire field of view as you play.

It produces incredibly vivid colors thanks to its QLED display and emits 1000 nits of brightness. My colleague Sean Hollister sums it up pretty well what it’s like to play on this screen monster in his review:

I’m not kidding when I say I have to look away when I run Destiny 2 in HDR, and I could swear I felt the flames the first few times my Star Wars: SquadronsThe TIE bomber detonated an X-Wing in oblivion.

Samsung released an improved version of this display in July, called the Odyssey Neo G9 monitor. Like the standard Odyssey G9, it’s also a 49-inch curved monitor with mostly the same specs. The main difference is that the Odyssey G9 Neo has a mini-LED backlit panel that produces 2,000 nits of brightness, allowing for more contrast. The edge is currently trying this monitor, and we’re finding that it may not be worth its hefty $ 2,499 price tag due to various issues we’re having – but we’ll get to that in the full review.

As for the much cheaper $ 999 Odyssey G9, there are no details on how long the deal will last on Amazon. However, we can assume that this is an early Black Friday promotion, so it might not last too long.
