Samsung Odyssey G7 Curved Gaming Monitor, 32 Inch, 240hz, 1000R, 1ms, 1440p , Black
About this deal
The Samsung has a bigger 32-inch screen, but that means it has lower pixel density and slightly worse pixel density. Update 17/11/20 – While we don’t yet have an official statement from Samsung, they have now released a new firmware version 1009. With core lighting, add personality to your setup with multiple colour modes that leap off the screen and into your reality. From these comparisons we can also compare the calibrated colour accuracy, black depth and contrast ratio.
All the nasty VA black smearing has been eliminated, and the image is sharper and clearer because now the response times can actually keep up with the high frame rate demands properly. The default ice blue or any colour selection brings a personalised touch to your monitor and its surroundings. The Samsung Odyssey G70B has low input lag for a responsive feel with high-frame-rate signals like at 144Hz and 120Hz. The HDR peak brightness is okay, but it doesn't get bright enough to make small highlights stand out against dark backgrounds. We have never really felt like a 27″ screen like the smaller G7 model we tested needs a curve in the first place to be honest.The OSD settings were adjusted as shown in the table above, as guided during the calibration process and measurements.
You will be required to fully uninstall (including disconnecting and draining of water, where applicable) your appliance, monitor or television and make sure it is ready for collection at the same time we deliver your new appliance, monitor or television. We also include a measurement of the % of the overall response time measurements that were within the refresh rate, as well as a slightly more lenient measurement of how many were within the refresh rate window within a 1ms leeway.There is however a slight slope of the edges on the right and left hand side so it looks a little thicker when you view the screen from the front. If a fault develops after 30 days, you will need to get in touch with the manufacturer to open a warranty claim. There is no specific 1:1 pixel mapping mode, but the ‘auto’ setting should help account for any non-native aspect ratios you might want to input.
This should afford you a low luminance option for working in darkened room conditions with low ambient light. This provides a wide and sturdy base for the screen, although the stand is quite deep so you will need to ensure your desk is deep enough to accommodate it. The Samsung Odyssey G70B doesn't have any compatibility issues with the PS5, and it works perfectly with it.The incredibly-low 2ms input lag brings never-before-experienced response accuracy to catch notoriously-agile enemies. Lighter greys and other colours will appear a little darker from head on than they will from a side angle, but you may well find you lose some detail as a result. It also supports other connectivity options you'd normally find on a TV, like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and HDMI ARC if you want to connect a soundbar. An X-rite i1 Display Pro Plus colorimeter was also used to verify the black point and contrast ratio since the i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer is less reliable at the darker end.
