Samsung CRG9 Overview

Built to deliver a wide and immersive gaming experience, the C49RG9 49" 32:9 120 Hz Curved FreeSync HDR VA Gaming Monitor from Samsung features a 49" Vertical Alignment (VA) panel with a native resolution of 5120 x 1440, a 32:9 aspect ratio, an 1800R curvature rating, a 120 Hz refresh rate, DisplayHDR 1000 with a peak luminance of 1000 cd/m2, AMD FreeSync II, and QLED backlighting.

The 1800R curvature rating helps your eyes to maintain a constant focus distance from the screen. This reduces focus shifts your eyes make when viewing a flat screen, which helps result in less fatigue and more comfortable viewing over extended periods. Additionally, the 120 Hz refresh rate means the display shows a new image 120 times per second for less delay between each individual frame and therefore less input lag. Rounding things out is AMD FreeSync II, which helps remove stuttering delays and screen tearing by dynamically adapting the display's refresh rate to variable frame rates.

Samsung has also equipped this display with support for 1.07 billion colors, a static contrast ratio of 3000:1, a 4 ms (GtG) response time, and coverage for 95% of the DCI-P3 and 125% of the sRGB color gamuts using Quantum Dot technology. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. This display has one HDMI 2.0 output and two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs for connecting to your system. For connecting peripherals, there are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports.

Please note that DisplayHDR 1000 requires HDR10.

Gaming Monitors are holding back gamers

Anyone who thinks this monitor is good for anything beyond productivity with the picture by picture mode has not experienced true HDR game play. This thing is dull, washed, and completely unplayable in HDR. I tried moving my PC and PS5 from an OLED TV to it and after 2 days of tinkering, configuring, and a metric F ton of cursing, it ended up on my office desk for spreadsheets. It's perfect for that 2 in 1 monitor vibe but for gaming.. NO.. Never again. Everything in this house will be OLED or better from now on. I kept the monitor because it's great for spreadsheets and stocks but, literally that's it.

First time Samsung let me down.

Stupidly I failed to see it only has 1920 x 1080 resolution. But the super annoying thing is that some options in the settings menu can not be chosen. Like the option to turn off the annoying blinking power light when the monitor is in standby. Why have an option in the menu if we cant use it?!

Had this Odyssey G9 (MFD. June '22) for over a month now (since 12/5/22). First 3 days it's shape is very weird. After a week settled in and quite likable. Got all the settings dialed in, took about 4 days of play. No immediate need for software updates (will do, eventually). Nvidia G-Sync works very well. Windows 10 HDR setting degrades image quality. No dead pixels. No major dimming issues. The factory stand is rather weak, monitor shakes if table shakes (don't want to drill holes in the wall). Sometimes when Window 10 wakes up from sleep mode the monitor won't wake up to DP signal (must reboot the PC). RTX3060ti running 3 monitors via display port - computer startup doesn't like the Samsung. Must turn off during boot up, then turn on and all is well. Playing a video that occupies center screen with big black bars on both sides - when the video darkens the black bars are slow to darken and follow, tends to overdarken then slowly come back (tries to sync, but imperfectly). The big monitor is very convenient for multitasking with multiple windows open. Of course, this thing really shines when playing videogames at 5120x1440. Peripheral vision gets engaged and no black bar in the middle like two monitors running. Some games can't run this resolution and I have one that won't even startup. Overall, his things a keeper.

Was a nice monitor for the 6 months it lasted. Made popping noises and eventually cracked down the middle of the screen.

All-around great purchase.

My husband purchased this monitor for me for Christmas and I couldn't be happier with it, the graphics are incredible and the picture is so clear! I am happy to say that there is no glare from sunlight what so ever, I was using a TV for a monitor before getting this one and when the sun came up, I couldn't see anything, but this monitor never has any glare. I love that it has so many options for the graphics, my old TV only had 720p but this one can be set to anything between 500 and 2160, I just love it!

Unfortunately, the manufacture don't specify this. Sorry for any inconvenience. If you don't tilt the monitor screen, the distance between them shouldn't be no longer than 3 inches. For further assistance, you can contact the manufacture at (800) 726-7864.

Thank you the response. However, my question was not if it will connect to it. My question was if it will WORK with it. I'm concerned that my computer might not be able to handle the 5120 x 1400 resolution. Plug in, yes. Work? That's what I'm trying to find out........
