    Display is gorgeous. Love the design, super clean, solid improvement over previous 49 inch models. Cables are routed into the stand, you won't see any cables. LED lighting is present but it is not too much, at night time it adds a subtle glow if near a wall. I ended up mounting this monitor to the wall since my previous desk arm (Ergotron HX) could not hold it properly. During games I definitely saw a difference between this and my previous CHG90 144hz. HDR looks fantastic, I didn't see any flickering at 240hz but I can't comment too much on games since I use this monitor mostly for productivity. Make sure you have a powerful enough PC to take full advantage of this monitor.

    I love this monitor. It is worth every single penny, do not even hesitate, just buy it. It should last you until the year 2030, easily. It's a dream come true, it is impressive, it makes me smile. I don't even play games... I just use it to see all of my stocks and trade windows, and just love, love, love it. I'm not even using it at 240hz, I'm using it with an older Geforce 1080ti graphics card on a VR laptop. I have none of the reported issues with the first batch, knock on wood.

    It was a beautiful display. But the display I got had a defected seal around the display and there was a 1 inch slit between the display and bezel that had light bleed. I returned the display and now there is no date on it would be resold in best buy. For the price of this display, it should be perfect.

    Very disappointed about this product for several reasons: * Nvidia G-Sync Compatible with NO drivers available at launch for the product, and still a month into the launch on the Nvidia site still says it’ll be compatible on the “Upcoming Driver” * Adaptive Sync Still Causes Several issues with flickering screen * Backlight Bleeding is very present leaking out of the edge of the monitor, the monitor is not adhering properly to the frame of the display. Monitor was manufactured in June 2020

    Most advanced monitor on the market

    Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.

    Having the most advanced monitor on the market comes with some draw backs. It works great and looks great but I get some bugs, clicking here and there when I have HDR on, and weird flickering at certain refresh rates but only on certain hardware. Overall it’s good and I would recommend it especially since Best Buy price matched Amazon’s cost but I do spend time waiting for driver updates because it currently cannot achieve 240hz with a 30 series nvidia card. It’s a known bug but that’s on nvidia, or so the release notes say. I also spend time reading on firmware and other user experiences and bugs because I am a little concerned this expensive monitor won’t last me the full 5+ years I’m planning on getting out of it. Like I said it’s a chance you take when get something bleeding edge sometimes. It shouldn’t be like that but tis the times and Samsung had QC issues that have been supposedly resolved. I did buy in september and still got a may 2020 model. Supposedly the issues are resolved after august 2020 models and the new 7T “business” model that apparently doesn’t have the light in the back that no one will ever use or see. Get it if you can afford it and hopefully u get a working model like I did on the 1st or 2nd attempt. Don’t get it if you saved for a really long time and need something 100% the first time.

    Look no further for a gaming monitor that outperforms and attracts more attention than your PC itself. When friends or family see this thing for the first time all I hear is “oh wow!” and “holy sxxx!”. Not only is this 49” of widescreen view, it is also crystal clear. You won’t see colors pop like this on your 4K tv. If you want to play games at their best quality, I suggest this beast of a gaming monitor. It even has direct audio for headphones or external speakers, although I just use the PC audio output so don’t ask me about audio. This is visually the best gaming monitor that anyone I know has, and it is mine. Worth every penny.

    Light bleed from bezel and dead pixels

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    My unit arrived with light bleed in the upper left, like others reported online. It isn't terrible or distracting since for me. There are a small cluster of dead pixels in the center top, these are not visible unless I have a bright white background, which is not often. I experienced dizziness and some neck strain when I first started using this, but I think I just needed to adjust my physical habits and distance to the screen. It was fine after a week of only occasional use. Gaming (FPS) is fine, since my focus doesn't change from the center very often. GTA still makes me a bit dizzy when driving. I bought this to "future proof" myself and to get into sync with upcoming GPU releases. My current 980ti is unable to drive beyond 120Hz.

    Great monitor with minor bugs

    I purchased this monitor for work. I am a professional shout caster for a major videogame company and need to see more than just the game while performing. The real estate offered by this monitor is unmatched at a 144hz refresh rate. The colors are crisp it has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a monitor at this price. My only issues are with the bugs. When the monitor returns from sleep mode the screen is very dark. I have to use CTRL ALT DEL to bring up the task manager in order to return to the proper light levels. Other than that it's a fantastic monitor.

    This monitor is changed my views, I previously had 2 32" curved monitors, and though I downgraded on size, the new aspect ratio gives my gaming view so much more potential. It's definitely game changing. I also love the Crosshair that the monitor can keep on the screen, so even if I'm playing a FPS I don't have to Iron Sight before knowing exactly where my bullets will be going. All in all it's a fantastic monitor, I would say the only things I don't like is that you need to find a Heavy Duty mount to support the extra weight. Also, the price tag is a little hefty.

    When this was announced at ces in 2019, I told myself I’d buy it. This monitor is something spectacular to game on. I came to this from a 34” ultra wide and I can’t believe I waited so long to upgrade to 49, but I’m glad I did because this setup is perfect. That said, you definitely need a powerful card to run it at full resolution for some games. I have dual gtx1080 cards and it can definitely game but it’s not getting to the FPS necessary for 240hz, but even 120hz looks perfect and is butter smooth. Next upgrade will have to be a new rtx card later this year.

    Defective product, terrible Samsung CS

    I waited a whole year and spent dumb money to get the G9 on its original release date. Instantly loved it for its size & clarity. After a few days, got the flicker, dead pixels, & screen separating from the frame w/ light bleed. I reached out to Samsung who said don’t return it because they would send me a new one. After a couple of months, they did send me another one... was more defective than the first one I bought. Called & emailed regularly, but no response. One time, 3 hours & 14-minute phone call until line cut. Only contacted me back in the end to get the replacement monitor they sent out. Never heard from them again. I waited to post this because I didn't want to have them retaliate by not assisting me, but here we are a whole year & some change later writing this.

    Brought me back to gaming. The best thing for gaming immersion without going into Full VR which is currently (12/19/2020)not quite ready yet. HDR bleeds incredibly bad and i had to turn it off, DO NOT BUY IF>>> you really want this screen for HDR. anything else is amazing. I did hear an odd popping sound coming from the speakers in the monitor but i turned them off as i have no interest in using them and it has stopped,

    This monitor is amazing. The colors are so beautiful. Gaming on this thing is breathtaking. I bought this and the LG - 27" UltraGear UHD Nano IPS 1ms 144Hz G-SYNC Compatible Gaming Monitor with HDR and I ended up taking the LG back for a refund. You couldn’t tell the difference between the 4K on the LG and the 2k on this one. This monitor is completely immersive. I use it for gaming and for working at home. I have not had any issues with this monitor at all and I’ve had it for 3 months now. Best Buy was awesome they price matched this two different times matching Amazon’s sale price. I definitely recommend this monitor.

    I think the most outstanding feature for G9 is the 240hz and 1000R. I brought this for office use and light gaming. HDR is pretty good, I guess at certain dark spots the backlight will become obvious due to the limited light zones. Overall I am extremely impressed. If you get a hands on this baby, it'll make you smile every time you sit in front of it.

    So close to perfection!

    Basically everything about this monitor is perfect, outside of the ghosting. On everything except the "standard" response time setting the ghosting is extremely noticeable and really takes away from the immersion that this monitor works so hard to deliver.

    This thing is YUGE! Bigger than I thought but I love it!. I'd suggest measuring before buying so you have enough desk space. Picture is amazing. I have more Chrome tabs now than I know what to do with and still plenty of room for more! Only play tested Diablo 3 on it, some screen tearing on the menu screen, but in game was flawless and took the entire monitor up beautifully.

    This is a great monitor, I did not get one with light bleed. Alot of real estate. i need to get a more powerful graphics card to get close to its full potential. I get an average of 100 on modern warfare using a meg x570, ryzen 7 3800x and a rx 5700xt on ultra settings. Am hoping the new amd graphics card will get me to the high 100s.

    Pre-ordered in June. Best monitor ive ever owned. I saw alot of comments and videos about a problem that this monitor has with the screen leaking, some sort of recall. It got me a little worried but, I'm lucky enough to not have that problem with mine! Samsung created a true gaming monitor for enthusiasts!
