Samsung's massive gaming monitor earned praise from our colleagues at TechRadar in their Odyssey OLED G9 review. The monitor's 4K HDR display, speaker system, and customization options live in the list of pros. Impressive color gamut and refresh rate round out the high marks from TechRadar. The biggest complaints about the monitor were that it's "extremely expensive," has poor UI, and lacks variety in its ports. The current discount minimizes the price issue, but you'll still have to deal with the lackluster UI.

While not quite perfect, The Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 received a 4.5 out of 5, which is more than respectable.

"Though most games look impressive on the curved monitor due to its great specs, having that 32:9 support is truly magical," said TechRadar's Allisa James.

"Titles like Forza Horizon 5 and Doom: Eternal look absolutely phenomenal in that ratio, as it not only avoids having UI cut off but the amount of scenery and detail you can see at once is truly gorgeous. Unfortunately, most games don’t support this aspect ratio, including bizarre choices like the recently released Diablo 4. That’s something to consider when investing in this monitor."

Our colleague at Tom's Guide echoed similar sentiments in their Odyssey OLED G9 review:

"Despite its size and cost, the Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 is an ideal gaming monitor for those who like playing games with an ultra-wide aspect ratio, or for folks who would like to switch their dual-monitor setups for a single monitor. The OLED G9 can also serve as a smart TV thanks to its Samsung TV apps. Because of that, the Odyssey OLED G9 is worth its premium price for those who want an ultra-large gaming monitor."

Both sites point to the high price of the Odyssey OLED G9 in their reviews, so it's obviously a factor when looking at the premium gaming monitor. A $700 discount on the Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 makes its price more palatable, at least within its category.
