[Best Buy] Open Box/New - Samsung Odyssey G5 27'' 1440p 144hz [$314.99/$349.99]

Did a quick search and couldn't find a thread on this. Both Amazon and Bestbuy have the same price of 349.99$.

Thought the open box in particular might interest some. I don't remember seeing a QHD 144hz 27'' for cheaper.

The G5 is VA but I personally prefer it to IPS since I watch content much more than play games. Only concern would be the 250nits brightness.

Had a golf ball size divet in the screen of my last open box monitor. Returned it and the cashier didn't even seem phased. Must happen ALOT

Amazon Warehouse Deals also has it for $319 ("very good" condition).

I have a couple of these purchased on impulse that I haven’t opened yet. I’m scared to find out if they are as mediocre as the reviews say.

I wouldn’t touch the open box units but $350 for brand new is decent.

Honestly why would you buy old when new is such a minor difference.

If the savings are like 100 bucks off, then it makes more logical sense to gamble with the open box.

For less than 50 dollar savings, don't buy open box. Better to guarantee your warranty or double it with certain credit card benefits.

Own it. Love it. Bought open box from Best Buy earlier this year (posted ). Brightness is decent. I use it for work and series x.

Pro’s:
Image quality
Curve
Low eye strain is awesome and a huge difference maker

Cons:
Color is just ok
Brightness is just ok
One hdmi, i was able to run a second connector from my laptop using the other input though but was lucky it all worked out.
Stand adjustment stinks. Purchased gas mount.

I would 100% buy again for this range.
I think an upgrade that is curved is a pretty significant bump in cost.

Bought and returned after a week or so of use. Garbage all around monitor. Great for gaming, but for daily use, as in, anything else but gaming ? You better get ready to adjust settings every time you enter and leave a game. Couldn’t put up with its flaws, the Dell s3220dgf is superior in every single way.
