Yeah as Warchild said it looks like the Samsung G7 is the monitor to buy now that the fixes have been implemented.
Also check out this vid for other ideas/options

The HDR in some games is superb once you get the settings right. But basedon the options you list above. They are all really good.

I opted for the G7 for the 240hz.
Okay I have kind of littled it down to the GN850 and the G7. Do you guys think the extra 200$ is worth it? I am legit hard pressed for this decision. On one case I save a nice chunk but on the other hand I pretty much get the best 1440p monitor. Hmmm...

G7 for sure it's deffo worth the extra and it might even be worthwhile to get the 32 G7 rather than the 27 as it might be better with the 1000r curvature

There is a huge price jump there sadly. The 27 is 600$(500GBP) while the 32 is 750$(650GBP). Are you sure it is worth the price jump?

Mate I love the realestate of the 34 that I'm using and TBH I wouldn't like to go back to a 27 and 32 is closer to 34 than not so IF you can afford it and you want it to be awhile before you change monitor again then yeah I'd say go for the 32, plus the 1000r curvature might be a bit much on the 27 vs the 32 plus who wouldn't like another 5 inches

Funny enough as I went to this reply Newegg had a sell. The 32 is now the same price as the 27 so I got the 32 one ordered!

Congrats,

I would have got the 32 also if it didnt have the major flickering. I returned mine twice. But now the issues have been resolved I think you have a major bargain there!

Its a fantastic monitor. My suggestion to you is to crank the brightness slider to almost max in the windows settings for HDR. If you use HDR that is.

So I just received my Samsung Odyssey G7 32 from Newegg, grabbed it up since they were having a nice sell. I updated the firmware since it was on the really old 1004 firmware to the 1009.3 firmware. After this I am seemingly noticing a sudden dullness in the colors compared to how much the monitor popped before hand. I am not sure if this is just a trick of the eyes or if I am actually noticing some kind of issue here. Can anyone tell me if they have experienced the same issues?

Go to tft central. I believe they provide the best colour setup.

Also in windows if you use HDR on, turn the slider to max. Additionally, use display port 2 not 1. And in the monitor menu enable VRR and display port 1.4

The colour dullness was due to fixing an issue with incompatibility within a certain colour range. It was present in the original firmware.
