Renowned for its strike force and its smooth marketing, the South Korean manufacturer Samsung has established itself in the gaming screen market in no time with its Odyssey range.
It must be said that the promises are beautiful and that the choices are numerous, from the G3 to the Neo G9, passing by the G5 and the G7 and while waiting for the newly announced Neo G8 4K, there is something for just about all tastes. and colors. From 24 to 49 inches, from 144 Hz to 240 Hz, from Full HD to WQHD (and therefore soon to 4K), there is obviously necessarily a model for you.
The G5 range represents the right balance and generally has excellent value for money. This is all the more true with the current promo on the 27-inch G5 that can be found on Amazon at 279 euros, which can still be deducted.
40 euros via a refund offer (ODR) from Samsung. Its final price therefore comes to 239 €.
We repeat ourselves but we never say it enough, on PC, there is nothing better than a curved screen to fully enjoy your games and have a perfect immersion. The great peculiarity of Samsung Odyssey screens is to offer a curvature radius of 1000R against 1500R in general for most other manufacturers.
The curvature is thus pushed to its maximum here to fully match your field of vision and not to be distracted by what could be happening outside. If the other manufacturers do not push the curvature so far it is above all for a story of solidity, logically, the more you bend a panel, the more it risks breaking, but Samsung masters its panels so well that it can afford it. .
For the rest we have the right to very classic, a VA panel with a 2560 x 1440p WQHD resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate and one 1 ms response time. The screen is compatible HDR10, from FreeSync Premium and by ricochet of a G-Sync compatibility Of course. Finally, on the connection side, count a port HDMI 2.0, a Display Port 1.2 and an jack output for headphones or speakers.
