Samsung Odyssey G7 Reviews
Not so bright in HDR
The monitor is great, shape, colours sdr brightness… but in HDR is really darkMarius H
I love the monitor but the screen is coming off.
I absolutely love this screen, the picture quality is great, perfect for gaming but for some reason at the top of the screen there is a white light and what I think it is, is the screen is peeling off which isn't the best considering I've only had the thing for 3 months. Quite disappointed honestly. I don't know if this is a 1 off thing with my monitor or if others have had this issue but just take this into account when you think of buying one. Since the screen is still usable and the damage is pretty much not noticeable I'm giving this a 3 star but if it gets worse to the point where it ruins the screen this will definitely be a 1 star.harry evans
Best 1440p Gaming monitor
So first and foremost let me just say a little bit about how I arrived at this monitor.
After tonnes and tonnes of research on what’s good and what isn’t good (I.e, contrast ratio, Hz, response time, colour depth and quality etc etc) I arrived at the Samsung G7. Now, my journey to this monitor was not smooth sailing. I originally bought the 32” SUXEN. Which is the predecessor for the SRXXU model I am writing this review on.
Anyway. The 32” SUXEN turned out to be one of the WORST purchases I have ever made (Screen flicker, Scan lines, too bright, poor colour quality and shimmering) and lead to me leaving one of the most scathing reviews I have ever left in my life. Alas, all of my problems were known issues with the monitor I paid £499 for.
After returning it for a full refund I began browsing again. I had vowed to boycott Samsung from there onwards so began the tedious search for a monitor that met all of my spec desires. Unfortunately I could find no such monitor that had all of my wants and needs AND had G-sync/G-Sync compatibility.
Thanks to Amazon I actually stumbled across this monitor (the Samsung G7 27” SRXXU) which was advertised as ‘the newer’ model in the G7 series. This time I read the reviews and all were positive. No mention of the previous issues that plagued its predecessor. So, I went against my vow to boycott Samsung and gave them the benefit of the doubt. Everyone deserves a second chance after all.
This monitor is undoubtedly THE best ‘budget’ 1440p monitor you can get on the market. It’s high end ‘budget’, selling at around £429 but boy oh boy is it worth the price. The colour quality is incredible. The brightness is just right and there is NO screen flicker, scan lines or screen shimmer.
I am so relieved because this monitor is rated as one of the best by websites such as Rtings etc.
You can increase/decrease your response time on the monitors menu alongside making other changes to your own preference. It’s a QLED VA panel boasting 240hz and there is no VA monitor on the market at this quality that can hit those 240hz (unless you want to pay upwards of £1000).
My advice after my experience is to AVOID the SUXXEN like the plague and instead invest your money into the newer QLED SRXXU.
Make sure you get the 27” as the pixel density is better providing better picture quality and clarity.
Do not buy, horrible glare no HDR at all and very pricey.
Great response times!... And well, to me; that's where it ends.
Incredibly over saturated, horrible viewing angles, terrible viewing in day time even, not true HDR at all just put in there for marketing, edge lit local dimming..
There is also this really bad glare.
I wouldn't recommend this monitor.
Update your firmware.
EDIT: Update: Monitor now has multiple dead pixels and the screen goes black randomly, returned for a refund.
Bought it knowing the issues this monitor may have. But let me assure you if you update the firmware of the monitor all of the problems are fixed. Its as simple as downloading the file from Samsung and plugging the usb stick into the port on the monitor.
The picture quality is amazing, hdr isn’t a gimmick and 240hz is incredible.
But be warned, playing at such a high refresh rate will ruin console gaming for you, I’m now unable to go back to 60fps. It looks awful.
Love this monitor
Hdmi 2.1 not compatible
Not as good as I thought it would be the hfmi port is just 2.0 not 2.1 and there's only one so not good if you require 120hz you will have to try get a work around if like me are trying to use it for ps5 or xboxGareth Tiwari-McIntosh
Worth Every pennies
What an amazing screen. I was already at 27" but 144hz and 1080p. Moving to this beast of 2k 240Hz is just another world of gaming.
Games looks more immersive, looks better.
If you want to enjoy 2k gaming at a high refresh rate, this is the monitor you need
Best monitor I have ever had!
It has been fantastic since day one, very happy with it!Samikaz
Only choice of VA panel with no flicker. Tried the msi equivalent and it was awfulStaceyP
Amazing gaming monitor not so much for everything else
The Odyssey G7 is for gaming the best 1440p monitor you can buy full stop. The response time and the refresh rate mean you get an ultra smooth gaming experience and the curve which may cause issues in other scenarios only adds to the immersion when gaming. In FPS games I found the curve very nice but in CSGO specifically (which I have 7k hours in) which I played exclusively on a flat 24 inch 1080p monitor the curve really didn't sit well with me and even after a month of playing it still put me off. In other games the curve can warp things somewhat but not to a degree that it is noticeable unless you are looking for it.
For other aspects like content consumption and productivity this monitor is not something I would recommend. The curve at this point becomes very noticeable and can really bug me however the picture quality is amazing although I wouldn't buy this monitor if you want a good hdr experience for watching movies it is better then other monitors for hdr but without FALD hdr just isn't worth it in my opinion.
So all in all an amazing monitor if you spend the majority of your time on it gaming but for more mixed use the curve can be a huge minus for a similar experience on a flat panel try the alienware aw2721D pretty much on par with the G7 in every aspect bar contrast ratio but it compensates with better brightness.
