If you have $2500 burning a hole in your pocket, then here is a new monitor that may be just what you need. Samsung is proud to announce the launch of its new gaming monitor, the Odyssey Neo G9 49” Monitor.
This was made for Flight Simulator.
F*** that! That's an enthusiast level price and for a niche market
And it's expensive because it's niche, it's a newer market and when people need it, they'll fork over that cash because they ARE enthusiasts or have a high paying job that requires it. I don't think it costs much more than a 16:9 to manufacture, but because they don't mass produce these, they blow up the price and they know people will pay up.
I agree with all of the points made
No thank you, Im happy with my samsung Full HD TV for gaming. :D
Uhm what? a tv for gaming is fine i guess if you just play some story-based games. if you play competitive games I wouldn't use a TV and be as proud as you sound.
I have the 32” G7 1440p monitor. One of the best monitors I’ve owned.
I bought one and I'm very happy with it too.
I own that one as well. I do hope however that they would make a G7 4K model with much better HDR contrast in the future.
That would me amazing!
I’m happy with my 65” CX that I got for less $$
Bought a 48" LG OLED C1 4k/120hz ($1399) for my PC/console monitor. It replaced an Acer x34, and I haven't missed it one bit.
you could buy a regular fancy monitor at 500 and save the 2k on a pc or graphics card. That's me though, I'm sure there is some crazy pc elitist who thinks this 2500 dollar thing will be the way forward for them.
What's the point of a $2000 pc if you don't have a monitor/tv that can take advantage of it. If your PC has lots of bells and whistles your monitor/tv also should. Heck I am still stuck on a PS4 pro waiting to find a PS5 and having a giant flagship 4k tv makes it bearable for the time being. I got it last year in anticipation for PS5 but being stuck with a PS4 pro isn't so bad when the TV itself literally upgraded the looks of every game I play.
I'm sorry but a 500 dollar monitor can easily take advantage of a 2k pc. Just because you don't spend thousands on a monitor doesn't mean you're losing out in any meaningful way.
Yes a $500 monitor suits the needs of the average person, but enthusiasts always want the most out of their hobby, especially when something like this isn't just beneficial to gaming, but production also. They've got the money and manufactures are willing to invest the R&D into products like this. Simple supply and demand.
“ I'm sorry but a 500 dollar monitor can easily take advantage of a 2k pc.” I don’t think there is a good 4K 49inch monitor at the price of $500, mate. I bought a G7 32inch 2K monitor and that cost me around $600.
Damn the monitor is really sick, I might get it in few years when the price drops !
