[Best Buy] Samsung CRG9 - 49inch 1440p 120hrz monitor $1299 Best Buy

Samsung 49" 1440p WQHD 120Hz 4ms GTG Curved VA LED FreeSync2 Gaming Monitor

On sale for $1299 at Best Buy and Staples and Visions

Edit. $1235 if you choose pickup at Visions

Not as low as last year @$1149 but still very good price in the current work from home demand

They are likely clearing this out for the new G9 series which can do Gsync and 240hz but also super expensive

Good post. Would be an option for me if it wasn't VA, that width = high variation in viewing angle = IPS please...

Love my Dell 34" ultrawide. #ultrawidemasterrace

These monitors make great immersion monitors for gaming. They're the next closest thing to VR. They are, however, less satisfying in a work environment.

IPS would be ideal given the off-angle side-eye viewing, but otherwise a solid offering.

sure if you have $1000 more to spend.
I also have my doubt on the 1000R curve on that monitor.
as for Gsync, it work just fine on the CRG9.
and good luck pushing 240fps on the G9, I have a CRG9 with a I9 9900KF and a 2080 TI and can't push 120fps in any of the AAA title in ultra or high.

Looks like Amazon dropped it to $1299 as well. There's even an Amazon Warehouse deals with Like New condition going for $1234.

Delivery is 1-2 months through Amazon. I do like their extended warranty that you can purchase though ($109 for 4 years)

Is this order and delivery only or can you actually find it in stores at a local Costco?

I definitely agree going for Costco's warranty and returns although if you can find it in store, I'll drive to the nearest one over waiting for UPS to leave a flyer at the door and to have to call them to move it to a nearby UPS Store for pick-up.

Edit: I called local and they confirmed that it is only online sales. Time to order and wait I guess.

For anyone who thinks of picking up Amazon warehouse deals, think again because I just recently found out this among their FQA section:

Do products come with a warranty?

No. Used products generally do not come with a manufacturer's warranty but all of our items are backed by Amazon’s return policy. If you would like additional protection, you can purchase a warranty from Square Trade to cover certain items.

I purchased the CRG9 last year and couldnt last more than a month with it - the ghosting was horrible. If you're sensitive to that, this panel is not for you.

Apparently the G9 has little to no ghosting - that might be the better route, or of course the 38GL950 which is an absolute beast and perfect in all regards.

With Costco, if you buy it today or tomorrow with Costco MasterCard, you could save another 5% from cashback. Of course if you're an executive member, you get another 2%. So that's up to 7% off in Costco with great return policy. If I don't think this monitor is overkill, I would buy it from Costco now.

There are are few amazing 38" coming out from different brands. Probably the same panel. Just waiting for it to be under 1200.
I looked into this 49" a few weeks ago when Samsung had a sale and it was under $1200... and my issue is table space. You have to have a massively deep table to avoid being too close or with only your wrists on the table - not great for anything. Some other manufacturers have a stand that is smaller but Samsung's 49" has a massive stand. That and due to the 32:9, it's only like 2x 27" monitors. Gaming is all stretched out and ugly on edges.

You should worry how deep it is too. You may not have any space for a keyboard, even if your table is wide... lol
