Discounted by 28% down to US$1,653.80 from a list price of US$2,299.99, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 is similar to the less expensive Odyssey G9. The main difference between them is that it has HDMI 2.1 inputs and Mini LED backlighting, this providing slightly brighter images with improved local dimming.
Those not happy with the cheaper Samsung Odyssey G9 can go higher and grab the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, which has the same size and looks, but comes with a few noticeable improvements. The most important upgrades are the HDMI 2.1 connectors (vs. HDMI 2.0 in the Odyssey G9) and the Mini LED backlighting, which allows for brighter images (2,000 nits vs. 1,000 nits) and much better local dimming (2,048 dimming zones vs. only 10). After applying a 28% discount to the US$2,299.99 list price, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 can be acquired for US$1,653.80.
Just like the Odyssey G9, this gaming monitor comes with a resolution of 5,120 X 1,440 pixels, 240 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms GtG response time, as well as support for NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro alongside Samsung Infinity Core Lighting. The only color choice available is black and the discounted model number is LS49AG952NNXZA. In terms of ergonomic settings, the Odyssey Neo G9 comes with user-adjustable height, pivot, swivel, and tilt.
After 796 user reviews, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 has a 4/5 rating, with 62% perfect scores and 12% 4/5 reviews. Sadly, its score is pushed down by 14% minimum scores of 1/4 stars. The breakdown by feature starts with a 4.2 score for brightness and continues with 4.1 for gaming performance, 4.0 for picture quality, 3.6 for screen quality, and only 3.2 for the “value for money” attribute.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
