My Honest Review on Samsung G5 Odyssey LC27G55TQWNXZA Gaming Monitor

This is a rather curvy monitor, and the very first feature everyone can note is the 1000R curve. In my personal situation, I have three 32″ 1440p (side by side) and curved displays are very much welcomed, for first, it decreases the overall horizontal space the 3 screens occupy, and second, the sides of the left and right screens get much nearer without getting a rough angle where the bookend monitors join the middle panel.

If you’re searching for one or more 1440p, 32″ G-Sync gaming displays for the 2080ti or RTX 3070+ card, the pool of usable screens is small anyway. Attached to the Alienware Ryzen version of 3950x and 2080ti, I have not faced any of the issues that other people have encountered. Gaming output was just as I expected, but to be perfectly truthful, it wasn’t much different from the 1440p 144Hz Samsung 1800R curvature display that cost a lot less.

There are some neat gaming features that were not present in my last Samsung: you can overlay the targeting reticle in blue, red, or white, and you can also change the center point in all 4 directions (compensate for status bars and the like), which is really good. Out of the package, the colors were noticeably different than my other displays, but there is a lot of calibration power. In terms of tearing, and so on, I saw neither of them. It’s a perfect game show.

For “creator” purposes-some colors are often shown with a slight pixel grid, which I find irritating. It does not appear on any hue, but it is visible to me, for example, on the Windows 10 background with the Windows logo (enough so that it prompted me to change the background). I don’t feel it at all when I’m either playing games or doing actual job, and since I’m using the G7 more, I found this less.

There are some pretty irritating things out there. Like most Samsung displays, when attached to DisplayPort (which is the only way to get 240Hz), in sleep mode, all windows are transferred to monitor 1. You can still use a DP to HDM cable to get rid of this dilemma, but then you’re stuck with 144Hz, so you can save a lot of money.

I find the USB hub unusable because any time the monitor is in sleep mode and backups, the USB un-detects/re-detects (on wake). This should not be the actions of a USB hub installed into a monitor. Also, the back plate to cover the wires has a couture that lets you bent the wires in an uncomfortable manner. I ended up leaving it because my computer is back on the wall anyway, so if you were to display it off for LED illumination, it might be a little bit of a hassle. Personally, I find the LEDs on the monitors gimmicky, particularly the front ones, since they are, after all, a computer. But, blessedly, you may toggle it all off. Finally, the G7 comes with a humongous brick of strength. Worse, while a common cable is used to go to the wall, the cable to the screen is set, and not too big. I ended up trying to place the power brick on my seat, which is definitely not desirable.

Finally, clearly, the price is incredibly high-which I guess it should be, but there’s not a lot of rivalry and it’s a fairly niche.

In conclusion-if you’re searching for a heavily curved, high-end gaming display, and the price isn’t a huge deal, this is pretty great. It’s not ideal, but nothing ever is, and the Samsung Odyssey G7 is definitely one of the best gaming monitors I’ve ever seen.
