Additional Potential Savings Alert: If you have an Amazon Prime Card, you can get 10% cash back ($140). That effectively brings the price down to $1259.99. If you’re an Amazon Prime member but don’t have an Amazon Prime Card, you’ll need to sign up for it in full as there’s no annual fee. This is a great card because it gives you 5% cash back on all purchases on Amazon all year round.

So what makes this monitor worth the price? The most important is the Mini LED display. Samsung’s premier “Odyssey” series gaming monitor is also Samsung’s only monitor equipped with a Mini LED backlight in combination with a quantum dot (QLED) panel. You’ll find Mini LED backlights only in the more expensive 4K TVs and also in the latest Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch XDR display, which is the most expensive iPad on the market.

The Samsung Neo G9 isn’t a one trick pony, and all other specs live up to the hype of a top-end gaming monitor. This truly enormous 49-inch curved panel monitor has a pixel-dense resolution of 5,120 x 1440. That curve is quite extreme (1000R) by the way, to the extent that it is almost cuddly toys you when you play games. It offers a 1ms response time and a 240Hz refresh rate, which means virtually no input lag or motion blur. It’s HDR2000 certified, meaning it’s capable of displaying a searing peak brightness of 2000 nits. In addition, it offers support for G-Sync and FreeSync Premium Pro. And it has two HDMI 2.1 ports.

It is clear that the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is not a monitor for everyone. You’ll need a fairly generous gaming budget if you want to add this to your rig. The cost keeps many gamers at bay, but the barrier to entry has certainly been lowered significantly with this deal today.

The Samsung Odyssey G9 was released in August 2021, so it is only a year older than the Neo G9. The only real difference is that the Odyssey G9 doesn’t have a Mini-LED backlight. That means it has fewer local dimming zones and a lower brightness rating (HDR1000 certified vs HDR2000). Everything else is virtually identical. The Odyssey G9 is a 49″ 5120×1440 1000R curved display with a fast 1ms response time, 240Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA-certified G-SYNC compatibility. The HDR1000 quantum dot (QLED) panel offers 125% more color space than the sRGB Standard (95% DCI-P3) If you care, this monitor is also great to look at from the front and the back.

We can’t name Samsung’s “best” gaming monitors without mentioning the new Samsung Odyssey ARK. This is a giant 55-inch gaming monitor (not a TV) with a mini LED backlight and a QLED panel, similar to the Neo G9. It features an aggressive 1000R curvature for maximum immersion and has a fast 165Hz refresh rate. For a screen of this size, it has an extremely versatile stand. You can even rotate it to “cockpit mode” for an incredibly vertical experience. Unlike most other gaming monitors, the Odyssey ARK is also equipped with a surprisingly capable sound system.

Edition 2022

The 48GP900-B is the first Ultragear gaming monitor to use an OLED panel. This is a WOLED panel similar to that found on the 48-inch LG C1 OLED TV, but there are a few key differences. Instead of the semi-gloss coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 has an anti-glare low-reflective coating that’s undoubtedly better suited for close-up monitor use. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It does carry over the HDMI 2.1 ports with [email protected] compatibility for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners as well as VRR and G-SYNC support. In addition, the 120 Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138 Hz when used as a PC monitor. Finally, if aesthetics are important to you, there’s subtle RGB backlighting on the back of the monitor that isn’t present on the OLED TVs.
