How much do you trust my girlfriend? If, like me, the answer is ‘almost too many’, you’ll be interested in these Cyber ​​Monday gaming monitor deals—one for the US and one for the UK. You see, my other half has been using Samsung Ultrawides for a few years now, and he totally swears by them. And given that we share the same small office, I’m also pretty impressed.

More pertinently, our reviewers were huge fans of the curved Samsung Odyssey G9, describing it as “absolutely great” thanks to how great its 49-inch panel felt for playing games. In the UK, you can grab one from Amazon for under a grand for a penny, which is a total savings of £281 and the lowest price we’ve seen. Still not cheap clearly, but it’s one hell of a screen if you want to be curved.

  • There are a lot of Cyber ​​Monday PC gaming deals happening already. It just doesn’t stop.

The G9 uses a 240 Hz VA panel with both FreeSync and G-Sync support. The native resolution of 5120×1,440 is about 4K as many total pixels and that means you’ll need a powerful GPU to drive this monster, but the results – especially the almost-wrap feeling of immersion – will be worth it. Despite having a plastic housing, the Odyssey looks incredibly sleek thanks to its glossy white finish and ‘Infinity Core’ LED lighting. “The overall effect is akin to a big budget sci-fi prop,” wrote our man.

A few caveats: We didn’t like the HDR implementation, and you should also know that this model Odyssey Neo G9, For our US readers, there’s $500 to save on the Neo, though it’ll still set you back a brutal $1,999. It’s the lowest sold by Amazon, and the Neo comes with a significant upgrade over its predecessor: a mini-LED backlight. “This thing is several orders of magnitude more sophisticated than it was before,” said our Review, adding this: “The Neo G9’s peak brightness has doubled to 2,000 nits-destroying retina.”

This QLED from Samsung brings 5120×1440 resolution and the kind of fast refresh rate that will keep you futuristic for a long time to come. The sleek design and easy set up will also help (a little) take out the sting of a gorgeous drop on a screen.

The Neo is the G9’s slightly cheerful brother. It supports HDMI 2.1, which means 144Hz over HDMI. If you have a next-gen console, you’ll also be able to play it at up to 120Hz on the Neo G9. We also liked its low latency and super punchy peak brightness.
