  • There is a Samsung odyssey g5 which is a couple hundred cheaper with most of the same features

  • Samsung Odyssey G7 32" vs HP Omen X27 ? I been reading a lot of complaints on dead pixels and flickering on the G7? Looks so wobbly.

  • For those on a budget you can get the G5 for like $270-$299 for a 27 inch which I personally have and have been loving so far. Definitely really nice and great for gaming but doesn’t comes with as much as this one but it’s the same mold. The 32’s are like $379 but like he brought up the pixel density but my friend has the 32 and it’s really really nice too which is why I got the 27 for myself

  • guys is the display port in it ?

    N o v aN o v aپیش 2 روز
    • Every gaming monitor is going to have DisplayPort. What you should really be asking, is what version of DP, and the answer is DP 1.4. All that being said, be advised that the G7 has serious quality control issues, and therefore you should not buy it.

  • Linus/LTT, can we get a follow up about these monitors and the issues with G-Sync flickering? Samsung lied to us all and says that it's G-Sync Compatible certified (which requires the display to be flicker free) and in the manual and actual use for most people, it says to expect flickering... Can you use your powers to reach out to Samsung and get a response from them on the issue and what solution they have to offer? They refuse to acknowledge ALL the reddit posts about the issue...

  • This 32 inch monitor with firmware 1007 can do custom 4k resolution @ 120hz with reduced blanking setting thru the displayport using Nvidia Panel and Gsync works with it.

  • youtube recommended me this video again... and when I clicked in I noticed my old comment got deleted lol. So in 3:19 you can see the whole monitor is shaking when Linus is just moving his mouse, also the whole set up is on a rough table, which makes you wonder if there is any problem with this monitor's standing.

      dyedie1dyedie1پیش 8 روز
  • I have the Asus PG279Q which is a 165hz Gsync monitor. Is there a noticeable difference between the monitor I have vs this type of monitor from the standpoint of smoothness with Gsync on mine vs ''Gsync compatible" on the Samsung? Is the Samsung less bc it doesn't have the full g-sync module? I'm asking because this checks all the boxes otherwise. I just don't want to potentially take a step back in competitive gaming

No need to be snarky with me and try to make me regret my purchase out of spite by sending condolences as if you belive there are more bad G7s than good ones and i was guaranteed to get a bad one (which is nonsense). Im not an idiot who spends this much without doing my own homework.

    • @robdee81 that's because i want to buy the fucking monitor (price dropped) until i read the 1 star reviews....i'm no jelous at all, i have been in the monitor lottery too many times.

      ICOBORGICOBORGپیش 25 روز
    • @ICOBORG says the dude sending his condolences on my monitor without ever seeing it run , and im the 12 year old? Like it or not your comment made you seem jealous. Anyway i did my research on the 27 and saw one running amazingly at my work friends house. I knew about the flickering which is mostly effecing the 32 and nowhere near as many 27s and took a risk because of how beautiful it looks in person, but remember it is on warranty. Maybe next time you act like a big boy and instead of sending condolences like a troll you actually ask me how mines running?
