    A flat 32:9 monitor? Insanity.

    Around the same time they add microsd card slots back to their phones.

    I think he's saying in general. They had those 32" odyssey VA screens that I'd like to get but honestly the curve was a turn off for me (plus the flickering which i guess is now resolved via firmware)

    Personally just going to wait until OLED hits 42" or lower at this point. My monitor is from 2015 - six years later and I still don't see a real upgrade.. mostly just sidegrades with various tradeoffs.

    16:9 curved monitors is retarded yes.

    Lets see, anything from 16:9 to 21:9 or bigger is an upgrade. But thats just me.

    Nothing has been a side grade for me, but I never like to use the normality since going ultrawide in 2015.

    25 inch 1080p 60hz, 25 inch 2560x1080p 75hz. 29 inch 2560x1080p 85hz, 35 inch 3440x1440p 100hz, 49 inch 3840x1080p 144hz, and that doesnt include my many different triple setups in between.

    Yeah I won't be buying any monitor until we have OLED's, preferably 32-40" with 120Hz and 600-800 nits. Would like more of a semi gloss display though, as the 48" CX is very reflective.

    Wish tech media would stop shortening the word Nitere to NIT.
    Latin Nitere, which means “to shine.
    A nit is a the egg of a louse, which sticks to the fur of an animal or the hair of a person:

    A decent upgrade on the OG G9. Only I don't believe the price will warrant the performance. The OG G9 was barely good value for money, this is far from it.

    Oooooh, that mega 2K zone FALD!

    ... with mega price to match.

    Expecting this to be the best monitor ever, but way above my paygrade so... I can only drool.

    If only there is a smaller version of this that doesn't break my wallet. I have been waiting for OLED 1440p or miniLED 1440p but it seems I might have to wait for another decade.

    But why not REC 2020 ?
    not 12 BIT color ?
    What is worth 2000NITS without REC 2020 or 12 BIT
    Ultra Blu-ray movies arrive at REC 2020 or 12 BIT
    Dolby Vision

    When I was looking at buying a new monitor I had to exclude Samsung as a brand because all their flat monitors are for office.
    Obviously I'm talking about 16:9 as I'm not into ultra wides, I'd prefer a 24'' 2k monitor right now.
    For ultra wide I guess the curve has some logic to it, but samsung just went all in: no variety.

    2000 Nits? Quite literally, I WILL GO BLIND... When perusing pr0n, of course. Almost a million pixels less than 4K, so this is 3090 friendly, nice!

    Yeah 3090 runs just about everything @ 5120x1440 just fine I have last year model of the G9 which had a little bit of a issue with DSC so at least the new one has 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and only 1 display port so no more need for DSC. This has been fixed with firmware/driver updates. The pre orders went quick first it said by Aug 8th now its showing mine to get here Sept 16. I was actually thinking the MSRP would of been even higher than it was and you get a JBL Quantum One headset with Pre-Order which has had mixed review but we will see if they can replace my Sennheiser set.

    I've been using an HDR2000 TV for 3 years and can still see.
    HDR doesnt mean 2000 nits is used all the time for everything.
