There are a number of ways to make your PC gaming experience more immersive, and investing in a high-quality monitor is one of them. Samsung came out with the Odyssey Neo G9 curved mini-LED monitor last year for those who didn’t want to spare any expense when building their rig. The 49-inch behemoth cost $2,500 at launch but is now $500 off again and back to $2,000. That’s a return to the Black Friday price, not to mention the lowest it’s ever been.
Given that this is a mini-LED panel, you get super high contrast ratios and extra-bright HDR performance. Samsung says the monitor has a black level of 0.0004 and can reach a maximum brightness of 2,000 nits. The screen has a resolution of 5,120 x 1,440, plus a 240Hz refresh rate with 1ms pixel response time and support for NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro. As far as connectivity goes, you get two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort and two USB 3.0 ports, and you can position the monitor however you want, thanks to the rotation, tilt and height adjustments.
This monitor was made for serious gamers, and these are the people who will get the most out of it. But if you like Odyssey’s Alignment but don’t want to spend $2000 on a single monitor, some other models are also on sale now. O 34 inch Odyssey G5 the ultra-wide curved monitor costs $120 and has dropped to a record low of $430. This WQHD IPS monitor was released in 2020 and has a 165Hz refresh rate as well as support for HDR10 and AMD FreeSync. You can also get the 32 inch Odyssey G3 ultra-wide curved monitor for $250, or 24% off, and the 24 inch Odyssey G3 vertical gaming monitor for $150, or 40% off its regular price.
