Samsung’s counterattack has not been long in coming and within the mid-range the battle is served, where the price is crucial. For this reason and with the help of Amazon, this Odyssey G5 It will not leave you indifferent, that’s for sure, but is it as good as it is painted?
Samsung Odyssey G5, complete and now cheaper
With this monitor we obtain a symposium of benefits that elevate it above the rest given its technical characteristics. And we are talking about a gaming screen that has a size of nothing less than 27 inches, which houses a panel with a resolution WQHD of 2560 × 1440 pixels which is extremely fast.
So much so that with their 144 Hz screen refresh rate requires only 1 ms response time. This may not be impressive if we look at the market, but this is not over, since it achieves these characteristics with a spectacular curvature of 1000R, so we will have the maximum immersion in each game, being much more curved than the 1800R monitors, for example.
This curvature according to Samsung manages to better fit the contours of the human eye, improving the visual experience. As for the rest of the panel specifications, you get a typical contrast of 2500: 1 and a glow of 250 cd / m2, something quite typical of VA panels.
What is surprising, however, is the fact that being so extremely curved it achieves HDR10 certification, which closes the circle of general characteristics, leaving a more than round gaming monitor.
FreeSync Premium, Flicker Free and Black Equalizer
The features are completed with support for the latest AMD synchronization standard in gaming, FreeSync Premium, with which and under a GPU from this manufacturer we can enjoy our games without stuttering or tearing.
In terms of complementary technologies we have one as important as Flicker Free, to avoid flickering and improve our view on the screen, and of course Black Equalizer. The latter will allow us a better view of the enemies in the shadows, allowing us to find and see them more easily despite the fact that they seek otherwise.
As interfaces we will find a Display Port 1.2 and an HDMI in version 2.0, where curiously there are no USB ports, although there is a headphone jack. As for its weight, we are talking about 4.5 Kg, quite light. If you liked it, surely you like its price more, since Amazon has lowered its price by 16% to place it at 249.90 euros. Do not let it escape!
