Taking home Samsung's popular 27-inch curved gaming monitor, the Odyssey G7, is more than doable with this offer from Amazon. As of today, it's currently marked down to $649 from its recommended price of $749.

This curved gaming display was first released in October of 2020, making this one of the lowest prices we've seen since it was first released. And at $649 this is currently one of the best offers you can find on the model.

Samsung 27-inch Odyssey G7: was $749, now $649 at Amazon

This monitor features a 27-inch curved LCD panel with a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Meanwhile the gaming-focused monitor supports a maximum refresh rate of 240Hz, and as you'd expect, that includes variable refresh rate support. The G7 is both FreeSync Premium Pro certified as well as certified as G-Sync Compatible, so it plays well with video cards from both sides of the aisle.

Backing the monitor is Samsung's QLED quantum dot-enhanced backlighting technology. According to the specifications, the monitor can cover 95% of the DCI color space. Meanwhile the curved display lives up to its name, with a very aggressive 1000R curvature. Officially, Samsung also supports HDR with the monitor, however it's telling that the company doesn't list any DisplayHDR certification.

For display inputs, the G7 offers one HDMI 2.0 input as well as two DisplayPorts.

It should be noted that this deal is only for the T1 Faker Edition which is black with red accents. There is also a solid black edition and one with blue accents available.

    As mentioned in the article, the curve is very aggressive for this monitor. At 27" its better to not have a curve and it ruins an otherwise generally good monitor. Reply

    Couldn't agree more...it's really weird to look at the 49" curved monstrosities which the user could only see completely if he had an extra eye located on each side of his head. Lots of head swiveling there! I just ordered the Philips 43" *flat* screen:

    I grew really bored of waiting for a 6800XT--don't know when I'll be able to buy one--so I've ordered this, instead! It should be here in a day or so, according to Amazon. Then I'll know if I'm crazy...and if I am I can return it for a full refund, fortunately! Really wanted the DisplayHDR1000 certification--so we'll see what we shall see.

    Except that's not at all what RSAUser was saying. They were saying 27" was too small for a curve, not 49".

    And the point of the wraparound effect is so that you can use your peripheral vision - not to try and focus on the whole screen at once. But that's mostly for gamers (and sim junkies), which is why you don't get it.

    What are you even doing in this thread? That's a 4k 60 Hz monitor ...which is totally fine, but why would someone who buys such a thing even consider a gaming monitor??

    Gaming monitors tend to cost more for the same size & resolution, for the sake of refresh rate. If you don't care about framerates, then you'd be wasting your money on a gaming monitor.

    VA monitors have a narrower viewing angle, which is why they're nearly always curved. That said, I agree with you that the curvature on this model is one of the few things holding me back. Reply

    I don't know where you looked, but it's DisplayHDR 600, and widely reported to be one of the few non-FALD actually worth using HDR on. Professional reviews of this monitor aren't hard to find.

    According to Samsung, the monitor is "HDR 600". They do not use "DisplayHDR" in any of their spec sheets or other product materials.

    This is not a mistake on their part; they do not make any claims about DisplayHDR certification.

    But from an outside perspective, it sure sounds like they do, doesn't it?

    Meh… Beware with this monitor. Not only is the curvature too much for many people, it's also a pain to use with NVidia cards: Please go through all the threads on Reddit and NVidia forums before buying it. In some configurations, it flickers like hell!
    They added a mode to stop the flickering in the monitor firmware, but that seems to introduce microstuttering instead.
    Sorry, 0/10 for a gaming monitor that supports "FreeSync" with a very peculiar sync frequency range.
