Samsung, the Neo G9 gaming monitor offers amazing features


Once upon a time, the Mini LED backlight, based on LEDs with reduced dimensions compared to traditional LEDs, was the prerogative only of professional monitors. Fortunately, this technology, which allows to obtain a greater number of adjustment zones to the advantage of contrast (and not only), has also started to spread on gaming monitors, on which it is even more important to avoid the phenomenon of Burn as much as possible In, which can affect OLED displays.

Samsung's new Odyssey monitor is a 49-inch, Mini LED beast

Samsung's Odyssey G9 monitor has more or less been the measuring stick for extra-large gaming displays since the company launched it early last year.

That device now has what seems to be a worthy successor: The Odyssey Neo G9.

Basic specs are the same: The new Odyssey Neo G9 is still a curved, 49-inch monitor with a 5,120 x 1,440 pixel resolution.

However, the new monitor is the first Samsung screen of this size to feature Quantum Mini LED technology — the same one used in Samsung's Neo QLED TVs. Thanks to this, the Odyssey Neo G9 has a 1,000,000:1 contrast radio, and a typical brightness of 420 cd/m2 with a peak brightness of 2,000 cd/m2. In real-life usage, this means deep, inky blacks with extremely bright HDR.

Other specs of note include a 240Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response rate, and a 178-degree vertical and horizontal viewing angle. And yes, it's still very immersive, thanks to a 1000R curve — though this kind of extreme curvature will mostly appeal to gamers.

On the connectivity front, the monitor has a single Display Port 1.4, two HDMI 2.1 ports, two USB 3.0 connectors, and a headphone jack.

Unfortunately, this kind of power comes at a fairly high price: $2,499.99. For comparison, that's $800 more than the original G9's price at launch.

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 will be available for pre-order on July 29, and it will ship globally on August 9.
