Do note:

Despite Amazon listing this as having a warranty for 1 year, when you actually register it with Samsung directly, the warranty is 3 years. I've owned the NEO version of this monitor and they both register for 3 years of warranty.

Equivalent to two, 27" monitors side by side. A pretty typical gaming / development / media editing setup. Can divide the screen in 3 separate zones, which is how I use my Neo most of the time. Extremely convenient setup for development and media work and amazing for gaming of all kinds, but specially driving, flight and space sims in my experience. Immersive as hell.

Any experience with first person shooters, how would a game like Valorant work for example?

Can you use multiple inputs at the same time and divide up the screen like that?

If it is 21:9, I probably will pull the trigger. But 32:9 is probably just too wide for regular game play.

It is better than 2x 27" because the monitor curves and obviously has no bezels. It is actually a replacement for a 3 monitor setup where you have 2 smaller monitors on each side of a larger monitor in the middle.

Once you go 49" you don't go back to multiple different monitors. This is a great price.

I can't explain differences but its definitely the older g9 model. It's not the neo version.

G9 Neo is MicroLED technology vs. regular LCD + backlight in the G9. That's the biggest diff between them.

I have considered this monitor on and off for months, but I think the curvature is too aggressive for my desk and I'm not thrilled with the QC issues I've read about it. I'll stick to 2 x 27" for now and wait for OLED monitors in a few years.

Great monitor. I have the neo version.
My only gripe is the stand takes up quite a bit of real estate on the desk. does anyone know any other monitor arm options besides ergotron hx?

G9 neo seems to have way better local dimming due to the full array backlight rather than edge lit... and consequently better black uniformity. better HDR on the G9 Neo and a lot better response time.

thanks - at this price i will pass then.

do need a monitor upgrade but i want the neo to drop then or new oled stuff.

the 4k aorus is also tempting at 799 vs 500 more for this, although UW is has its pros.

next one i buy at this price range will be a 5-10 year investment hopefully

I own the Neo version and that is the higher end version of this thread's G9. The main differences with the Neo is it's upgraded "Quantum Matrix" LEDs, which are much brighter full array, mini LEDs that provide far more back-lit dimming zones. While this thread's G9 can achieve HDR1000 (and looks pretty good doing so), the Neo G9 can achieve HDR2000 thanks to the back-lit LEDs and looks amazing in HDR. Since it gets much brighter and also deeper blacks (thanks to its increased, full array dimming zones), the apparent contrast ratio is and looks much higher on the Neo G9. That's not to say the standard G9 doesn't look great, however... the Neo G9 just looks better, depending on content. Outside of that the Neo has 2 x HDMI 2.1 ports (max 120Hz) and 1 x DisplayPort 1.4 (max 240Hz). Otherwise they are basically the same in most other aspects.

Edit: I stand corrected. The regular G9 is indeed edge lit, according to rtings.

The non-Neo isn't edge lit, it too has backlit QLED dimming zones. The Neo G9 just has micro-LEDs instead, and more of them to reach HDR2000 instead of HDR1000 on the G9. Both look very good in HDR, there is no doubt, and blow away most other monitors on the market. At a very inexpensive $1,298 (relatively speaking), this G9 is a no-brainer, really.

I've had this G9 (original version) for almost two years now. Got it during Black Friday 2020.

Amazing monitor - colours and brightness are great, excellent for multitasking and gaming

It does take a lot of desk space though, so make sure you have a desk that can accommodate this.

When you say 2/3 zones, is it as functional as 2/3 monitors? Can you easily drag and maximize windows to fill just one zone? As someone with 5+ apps constantly open and switching between them, I found a 34" ultrawide terrible for productivity vs. 2 monitors and only good as a dedicated gaming monitor. I know they are selling this as a gaming monitor but it if was also good for productivity, I might be interested.

On PC I use a Microsoft tool called PowerToys FancyZones to create custom layouts for the monitor. This will let you snap windows onto pre-defined grids. On Mac I use Magnet to achieve a similar effect.

I picked up this monitor during 2020 BF and it's been holding up well. Super happy with the purchase and works well for both gaming and productivity with multiple windows open. It's now hard going back to a narrower setup now for work.
