    1:47 a piece that has to be broken in half before being installed. Clearly samsung knew who they were sending this too, it is a new type of design school, it is called Linus-oriented design.

      @josh dobbins I’m gonna replace the gl850 with the g7 so that says enough. It’s the superior screen for single player experiences

  • DarkHaven

    The fact that this is 240hz, 1440p AND it’s a Qled with hdr and local dimming on top of DisplayPort 1.4 makes this the best gaming monitor you can possibly buy rn. Most monitors don’t even have a qled screen either.

    • mikerzisu

      @R Alexander you made the ignorant comment that the best panels in tvs are VA. That is blatantly wrong. You stay on topic chump.

      @mikerzisu When did I mentioned OLED? I'm talking about LCD panels. Try to stay on topic.

    • mikerzisu

      @R Alexander you are 100% wrong. The best panel out today for tvs is the QD-OLED oled Samsung. By far.

    • R Alexander
      R Alexander

      @mikerzisu Considering the best LCD panels in TV's are VA I'd say your comment is completely false. In monitors for many years the same panel was in circulation which changed with the G7.

    I've got an old predecessor to these monitors (CFG73 line) and it too has a *very* good precalibrated sRGB profile. Like outstanding even. It came with a calibration report and so did the one I got my gf. Both vary slightly but tbh I think all monitors (and especially high-end TVs..) should come with at least one precalibrated profile. It can make a *huge* difference in terms of user experience if you're not willing to get it calibrated or can't do it yourself.

  • BockworschtSoldier

    I wanted a G9 at first but after a little bit of research I came to an conclusion. The G9 is awesome but a little bit too much for me and the Resolution is not natively supported by many games. Then I saw this one and decided that I want the G7 and keep one of my old Full HD displays as secondary together on a desk mount.

  • RM

    I yearn for the day when I mistakenly think I have a 2080ti, and end up having a Titan RTX, instead.

    • hotwuk212

      for me this would be a 1050ti instead, not cos im poor, but becos my luck is shit

    • Colby Thibodeau
      Colby Thibodeau

      @Andrew Upp it's really not, the titan has never been intended for gaming, its an enterprise development card it's meant for rendering, production and CAD development lol, sure, I mean you CAN game on it, but it's not it's intention and in a lot of benchmarks the 2080ti and especially now the 30 series score much higher than the titan or any variant of the titan. They were designed for different purposes.

    • Alumlovescake

      @Naphilim666 yeah but titan is better for some things ti is better for gaming though

    I'd be very interested to hear how they've circumvented the issue that 5120x1440 @ 240Hz doesn't fit the bandwidth dp 1.4 or HDMI 2.0 can muster.

  • Simply Gaming

    I normally wouldn't budget a monitor that cost this much but, doing the 3080 build should allow to have a monitor of this quality. Really curious what the fps would be on it then :D

    I am about to switch away from a VA panel and was under the impression this was more of that tech. The motion blur and slow response really was noticeable to me in shooters.

  • pmochals

    Not sure if I should try to sell my 34" Alienware Ultrawide for the 32" G7 ...IDK if going back down to 16:9 would be beneficial. But overall the specs on the G7 are superb. G9 is just too much for me to even consider.

  • Marty

    Interesting looking monitor. I had decided on this one: LG 34GN850-B, which is a 34" beast of a gaming monitor, but this samsung is making me rethink things.

  • Joseph Martineau
    Joseph Martineau

    That monitor is a thing of beauty, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a 27" of similar specifications that's available/cheaper?

  • lunsmann

    I watched the G9 video first. Awesome intro to what is likely to be my next major purchase. I think my 1080 can handle the G7 which retails here in Aussie for around AU$1200 but I really want the G9 (AU$2900) which will also need a GPU upgrade (2080Ti at least). Close to AU$6,000 may be a bit outside my budget. LOL

    I Love your videos. I'm crossing over to PC gaming. My question is: Can I use a 60 hz monitor for my streaming PC for chat etc.. And for gaming, go all out and buy a 165 hz for gaming PC, or do they both have to be the same or equal monitors?

  • Dru670

    I pre-ordered this 32" version on Father's Day. I already have an LG32GK850G-B and Samsung C32HG70 monitor. Thinking about getting the 27" version tho for the pixel density. I used to have the Dell S271DG and I like how much sharp and crisp text and things were.

  • SnapShopVisuals

    Fun Fact: If you have a power outage, then your monitor may accidentally change your aspect ratio to Super Wide with no way to change it via windows settings! The fix for this is to turn the internal PIP/PBP mode on and then off, which enables multiple displays on one monitor. This should fix your stretched desktop problem. :)

  • BullzEyE17

    Has anyone tried to dual wield these vertically? I'm curious to see how that would work out lol

  • Tadi

    Would love to see monitors being tested for response time and color accuracy in a similar way to Hardware Unboxed.

      @Derek The Magnificent Bastard Then you're looking into wrong types of monitors. Exclusively VA monitors are curved, IPS and TN - not. The curve is meant for great viewing angles whereas VA is superior to other tech panels.

    • Nimbus

      I mean, just go to hardware unboxed? I too am a big fan of their monitor reviews.

  • Farhan Ahmad Tajuddin
    Farhan Ahmad Tajuddin

    I'll take the G9. The G9 is basically two G7 that has been morphed together without ruining the original 16:9 aspect ratio format. Easily my favourite all the way as I can split the screen for two 16:9 QHD window.

  • Sede Vacante

    I also noticed how the blur busters alien is noticably more crisp then even my previous 1080p 240hz monitor (Acer XF250Q). Very impressive!

  • Abhishek Deb

    I do like to know one thing that how does the QLED panel on this display compare with an IPS one. Does it really makes difference ?

  • TheDarmach

    Is 1440p enough for 32" font/cleartype wise on Win10? Also for sniping long distances, how well can you spot that point 300m further in an fps?

    i don't know but i think having two titan rtx(s??) should still boost your frame rate oh and you should definitely make a video about the g9!

    what i wonder is, do these monitors still have VA lines? monitors from 2017 was horrible with that.

  • Josef´s Everyday life

    Is 32" too big for FPS? Or is it perfect for gaming?

    It"s actually quite affordable, for a monitor that can question if an Titan is enough.

      Eren forced me to write this it’s not 1080p, its 1440p. That’s 2k, and it’s running at almost 4x the hz as consoles.

  • Warren

    Did you test the monitor with Gsync or adaptive sync enabled? Early reviews on Best Buy's website indicate that there's a flickering problem.

  • Bogdan Stefan
    Bogdan Stefan

    This clip was such a tease: Linus showed the G9 in the background, all the time. For anyone interested in something more affordable, try the Samsung CRG90. It's only 120Hz, but same resolution and aspect ratio as G9.

  • Cr Hu
    Cr Hu

    Apple did a lot of homework before settling on 1440p 27" for iMacs when they came out. The larger ones they have now are 2160p or "5K' or "8K' at 32"... But a 40-43" 4K is still a good monitor. At a third of the price.

      Ádám Szabó

      @Ben Hamilton Thanks for your answer! Good to hear they sorted the flickering issue, it was a concern. Another thing, is the PPI enough with 1440P on a 32" monitor?

    • Ben Hamilton
      Ben Hamilton

      @Ádám Szabó I have to say it's been great. They updated the firmware a while back to completely get rid of the flickering. The only minor nit is that when returning from sleep the G-SYNC compatible monitor notice will pop up sometimes.

    Would the G7's curve be too aggressive for video editing purposes or workable? I'd like to use it for casual gaming and editing.

    • TheAmberGryphon

      If you still need the answer, the curve is fine.

  • Vsoundelend

    This is my first curved monitor. I was waiting for Samsung to make this one for years too. Warning for first time users. Certain types of wallpapers and games, ie; Platformers and ARPG's can make you very dizzy. Took me a few days to get used to it, but now I don't think I'm ever going back to flatscreen PC monitors. First Person perspective games like Destiny 2, ARK, Fallout 4 and Satisfactory feel amazing, nearly like VR. I strongly recommend any of the 3 Odysseys! This is just a beginning for Samsung. Their next great goal(hopefully) will be to make Odyssey 2.0 but with In-Plane Switching panels. It might take a couple of years and those might be twice as expensive, but it will be worth it!

    • Lukáš Voců
      Lukáš Voců

      And in real life, as long as you can track fast moving object with your eyes, it is not blurry, yet on 144hz lots of things still looks blurry, and they dont have to move that fast. I noticed it mostly probably in forza, when you turn, background starts to move. You can deffinetly track it but it looks really blurry.

    Mine arrived from BB today. I had the last gen 144 HZ Samsung curved monitor. The curve takes a minute to get used to (maybe two minutes if you never had a curved monitor before). Everything is extremely similar to the last gen, BUT the colors do seem nicer and when you get something running 240 HZ it is butter smooth. The VA/G-Sync flicker is real-- I am returning mine today

    It seems Samsung wanted other companies to pay for the development of gaming monitors. In 2010 I bought a 1ms 1080p Samsung, and it was the only one they made for ~ 5-6 years.


    That's what everyone should do when comparing games : Just take it on camera ! It's useless to do a split screen video when you have an iPhone, or a PC less powerful graphically. At least, on camera we have an idea.

    CSGO: You need higher than 300fps for consequential mouse input due to how the engine handles the input. I think V/G/Free-sync is bad for performance if the engine needs higher FPS in order to handle the input, and or if your computer cannot achieve your monitors max refresh rate.

      @SN4K3 AK It'll most likely support it, and if this moniter is anything like it's predecessor (CHG70 which I own) it'll support 4k but locked at 60hz. Higher refresh rates will set the resolution at 1440p.

    Wouldn't it have a separate power brick so the monitor can used all over the world. Regardless of voltage. Cheaper to make a power brick than a new monitor for every country

    Looks good, but it's curved. I need a flat monitor. Looked it up on Samsung's site. Saw the G9. It looks great. I'd get one if they had a flat version. For now I'm stuck looking for multiple flat monitors.

    would you recommend having GSync enable? I’m getting way lower performance rate when running userbenchmark when enable, not sure why?

    Great video Do you turn the monitor off manually at the end of the day or you have it in sleep mode? Thanks

    For those out there wondering, the 32in G7 has about the same pixel density of a 24in 1080p monitor. You get the added screen size, but the image looks the same. If bigger is what you want, go for it! For me, I like a high ppi as well.

    • Maco091

      @Leon not everyone can push the monitor back further though. I am somewhat constrained by space and don't have the ability to push a monitor back further. There are many others in my position here, which is why I lead with "for those out there wondering" because PPI is a spec that matters to some people. Not everyone though.

    • Leon

      @Enzo G I highly doubt people will actually stay at the same distance from a much larger monitor though. You're really likely to sit a bit further back when you have a much larger display in your FOV than you're used to. For TVs I get it more though since both the seatings and TV are stationary, but at a desk you usually have a movable chair. In the end a larger display gives you more possibilities in watching, although of course the size increase comes at a price.

      @Leon well the assumption is you got the bigger monitor to have it at the same distance and enjoy the increase in size. I for one will stick with the 27 inch for desk size and PPI. I’m getting one just for fighting games and overwatch as I hate the black bars on my ultrawide.

    • Leon

      That is a somewhat dumb metric. This assumes that you'll stand just as close to the monitor, whereas you may just as well push it further behind the desk, stay a bit further from it, or a combination of the two. Therefore, the screen gets smaller in your vision and pixel density is higher.

    Cute. Now, why don't they make these small enough for high res VR headsets or even HUD visual elements.

    I prefer external PSUs for monitors. If You've ever had the internal one fail in you then you'll know why.

    I want to see how this works on the Series X.

    Does he not realize that we can’t see the smoothness of the monitor, unless we have the monitor

      Technically a recording 244hz and watching it on 60hz would be better looking then watching 60 hz on a 60 hz display
