Samsung Odyssey G7 Curved Gaming Monitor, 32 Inch, 240hz, 1000R, 1ms, 1440p , Black
About this deal
To try and give a more direct comparison between the different VA models we’ve tested we have produced the following new comparison table below. You can also enable Game HDR if you want a brighter image, but then the EOTF is too bright, as you can see here. However, the VRR support is unstable at times, as it would cause the screen to turn black or flash on and off when switching applications, as if it was resetting the handshake. The VRR range supported is between 80 and 240Hz maximum over DisplayPort on this model, which doesn’t offer a particularly low limit on the VRR range.
There is a motion blur reduction backlight mode available on this screen as well, accessible via the ‘Fastest (MBR)’ response time setting. In the event of a fault developing in the first 14 days of receiving your purchase, please get in touch with us as soon as possible, we will help you with troubleshooting and resolving the issue.
There’s also oddly a rotation function offered on this screen which is normally not provided on screens like this as it’s pretty impractical on a curved format display. The Samsung has an advantage with motion handling as it has a faster response time at lower refresh rates, but the LG has lower input lag at 60Hz.
It's also impressive for work use as it has a large 32-inch screen with a 4k resolution for sharp details, and it delivers accurate colors if you want to use it for photo editing. The Samsung G7 also surpasses even the fastest IPS panels from a response time point of view which was impressive.While text looks sharp thanks to its 4k resolution and high pixel density, some letters aren't as bold as on other 32-inch, 4k displays like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 S32BG85. For these tests we will plot the average G2G figure at a range of measured refresh rates, while operating at the optimal overdrive control. If DeltaE <2, LaCie considers the calibration a success; there remains a slight difference, but it is barely undetectable. At the full brightness setting in the OSD the maximum luminance reached a high 364 cd/m 2 which was a bit higher than the 350 cd/m 2 max brightness spec from the manufacturer (in SDR mode). If you are coming from a 1080p screen then the resolution size takes some getting used to over a few days as there really is a lot of room to work with but once you do, it’s excellent.
This lighting can be turned on/off in the OSD, and you can also set it to only show the back lighting and not the front if you want. Performance during VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) – bearing in mind that the refresh rate will fluctuate anywhere from 1Hz up to the maximum supported by the screen (e. Additionally, it delivers accurate colors without calibration and displays a wide color gamut in SDR. There was some low levels of overshoot on some transitions but in practice there was not really many noticeable side-effects in the form of pale or dark trails.
It is easy enough to obtain a suitable luminance for your working conditions and individual preferences, but a reliable factory setup in gamma, white point and colour accuracy is important and some (gamma especially) are not as easy to change accurately without a calibration tool. On a black image from a side view there is very little glow from the panel, and the deep blacks and strong contrast ratio are still evident. These adjustments before profiling the screen would help preserve tonal values and limit banding issues.
