    LG UltraGear 48GQ900 48" OLED Monitor

    Yeah people here are a minority. The majority of PC monitor users want matte because they can't stand looking at their disgusting face in the displays reflection.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Samsung just doesn't make sense.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Yes people on the monitor discord have done it and scanlines are still present. Seems like 167ish Hz is the ceiling for a scan line free experience like the Neo G9.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Well Rtings at least confirmed what I've been saying in here since the 42" launched in North America. Most of the time it's actually brighter than the AW. The Dell is a brighter SDR monitor but in HDR the C2 looks more impactful 75% of the time. Check out their real scene brightness where...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    The confirmed differences are 240hz vs 165hz along with the AR coating with the G8 having a far more aggressive matte. The controversial difference is HDMI 2.1 support because Samsung lists the G7 as having it in one place and says otherwise else where. Peak brightness is the same between both.

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    What is more important? 1000+ zone FALD or a polarizer that in the grand scheme of things brings their bill of materials up by $25. That thing is way overpriced for what is essentially a globally lit monitor. If Samsung can sell you a 1196 zone FALD monitor (Neo G7) for the same price something...

    Pretty sure that things edge lit and way overpriced.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Well I had both the AW and now main the 42" C2 and think the C2 is a better monitor than the AW. Lets see if you agree when you get yours. I have pretty low expectations for this G8 especially given I paid $800 + tax for it. Seems like reports online indicate the Neo G7 is a better buy.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    My Amazon order went from delayed in transit to damaged in transit and is now on route back to Amazon. Samsung order still hasn't shipped for some strange reason and I can still cancel. I have the patience of a toddler so gonna give it another day.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I have a killawat and will measure the C2 when I have a chance. FYI PG32UQX measures 60w @ 200nits. It comes with a 280w power brick and draws quite a bit more than a C2 under high APL HDR. I wouldn't be surprised if its north of 180w. EDIT: Rtings measured 179w max from their 55" C2 which gets...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    According to this infographic yes the only real difference is refresh rate but it also shows G8 is HDMI 2.1 equipped while G7 is not. This contradicts Samsungs own spec page showing the Neo G7 has HDMI 2.1. This is probably because HDMI 2.1 is ambiguous now days so the G8 has higher bandwidth...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    There is a possibility that 165hz is below the threshold that the panel exhibits scanlines and may have been a deliberate choice on Samsung's part. Like the Neo G8, the Neo G9 is stuck with either 120hz or 240hz refresh rate but will accept 167hz with a custom res where like 120hz, scanlines...

    There is no variance. What you're reading is the difference between those with eye balls and the blind.

    Samsung Odyssey ARK 55" 4K Gaming monitor

    This is rumored to launch in August. https://www.etnews.com/20220624000011?mc=em_015_00001 No idea why some places are reporting it as QD-OLED. Pretty sure its a 165hz VA Miniled panel as evident by the piss poor viewing angles and blooming. If it was QD-OLED I'd buy it.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Looks like it was 102 and the guy mistakenly thought his was 103. https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/vijptd/alienware_aw3423dw_are_now_shipping_with_newer/ There is still hope 103 could fix the standby thing but at this point I'd rather just see how Samsungs own version as...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Confirmed on reddit that 103 does not fix this. I'm waiting to see if the MSI version does the same crap.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Damn no way. Samsung CS won't do a thing until weeks after so yeah going through Paypal directly is probably your best bet. Time for Amazon? Mine was suppose to arrive from Amazon yesterday but all it says is "Delayed in transit" so probably Monday.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    New batches manufactured after April are M0B103 firmware. Wonder what they fixed or improved other than the pixel refresh prompt bug and HDR1000 UI bug.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    These monitors go through revisions very frequently. The Neo G9 is just now on the 3rd almost a year after launch (shows CC03 on the back). When I went by a friends to check it out the frequency of scanlines was greatly reduced as was the strength of VRR flicker in worst case scenarios. I don't...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    That's Samsungs optimization approach to maximize contrast and minimize bloom. It's basically the TV method to FALD and what separates it from other FALD monitors - it actually has a FALD algorithm other than on/offing zones. I am okay with it as it was present on the Neo G9. The alternative is...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Enabling "VRR Control" basically disables VRR. I know this because every Samsung VA panels overshoot magically disappears with it enabled. If you got this monitor try it for yourself. Its literally VRR off without the tearing and looks super choppy. I think they are doing some kind of frame...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    All of Samsungs 1000R monitors are curved like this. Pinched in the center and relatively flat near the sides. I mentioned earlier in this thread that it results in a strange tube effect with horizontal scrolling stuff. People have been theorizing why this was done for a while and you can read...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    No offense but are you new to Samsung? This thing has no Vesa DisplayHDR certification because it would only manage DisplayHDR600. Samsung can market it as Quantum bullcrap HDR5000 if they want. It's completely meaningless. We knew a month ago that its real HDR brightness is 800ish nits. Nobody...

    Didn't need the EDID to figure that out. Samsung themselves gave you that information like 2 months ago:

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Chinese review confirmed 40Gbps through their EDID hardware tool and demo'd 240hz 12bit over HDMI. EDIT: Maybe a ninja spec change? This is the first review on Amazon for the Neo G7.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    IMO probably best to use HDMI with this thing. You can do 12bit 240hz unlike DP since it has 40Gbps HDMI 2.1 ports.

    What a joke. My backup Amazon order shipped out of no where while my Samsung order is still cancellable.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    G9 text looks no different to me than any other RGB LCD. G8 is also RGB unlike the BGR Gigabyte while also being much higher PPI so text will look nice. Only reason to buy from Bestbuy is for a 3 year geek squad warranty or if you have tons of gift cards. I could not stomach paying $1499 for...

    Once it's preparing for shipment your ETA will update. Amazon doesn't update ETA's until right before even when the live product page shows a earlier delivery than your order. I expect early orders on Amazon to ship by tomorrow.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I couldn't get it to check out at all with the lowered price, maybe was too late. My friend who tipped me off though did earlier this morning. It seems to be shuffling around in price and went as low as $755 pre discount codes or any other promotion. Neo G9 was also like $900ish. They never...

    I'm not really seeing temporary IR on mine thats appearing any faster than any of my prior OLED's. Maybe WBE or WBC matters in this regard or just panel variance in general.

    FYI SHIVSAMSUNG code brings it down to $1069 after edu/work discount on Samsung.com currently along with the $50 reserve discount. I think I'm just going to reorder because after doing the 10% cancellation trick it comes out to $969. EDIT: Yeah with 10% off from CS it came out to $969 pre tax +...
