Yeah but if u think about it the 240hz and aggressive coating kind of make sense together while the 165hz and less aggressive coating also make sense together.The blunder with the G8 is the aggressive coating and not offering also that 165 Hz option out of the box. I could see 240 Hz even with scanlines being a viable option playing e.g a multiplayer shooter that can run at those framerates and then you really don't have time to look at image fidelity.
But as it is, I would also buy the Neo G7 over the G8. If they could release it in Europe that is...
240hz I can see being used by someone who has the absolute fastest video card at all times, computer fully blinged out in RGB. 165hz is fast but 240 is faster. And, with all that RGB the super aggressive coating helps.
165hz is fast enough though and for people to prioritize image quality using 165 plus less aggressive coating also pairs well.
So selling these as two separate monitors does make sense. Neo G8 for those that want absolute speed and maximum reduction of RGB reflections (super gamer), Neo G7 for those that want best balance of performance and image quality. The G8 is higher model# and price than G7 again because type of person that would buy that monitor probably prioritizes specs, plus there is probably some extra electronics that enable the 240hz (and also causes the scanlines). I have to wonder with the scanlines and the G8/G9 topping out otherwise at 120hz whether the 240hz is some sort of scan line interleave mode
In other words I don't see the problem with how Samsung launched these , at least until some other company delivers 4k 240hz with less artifacts than the neo G8. The takeaway is for those that prioritize image quality the neo g7 is the best play.
