Samsung announced a new Odyssey G30A gaming monitor in its Odyssey G3 series. The new Samsung PC monitor comes with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and has a Full HD resolution.
Samsung Odyssey G30A is delivered with a 16: 9 aspect ratio and is aimed specifically at gamers. Samsung is thus expanding its already impressive selection of gaming monitors. This gaming screen is available in 27 and 24-inch versions. It has a lower resolution with Full HD and has a refresh rate of 144 Hz.
This Samsung PC monitor will have to compete with other competing products that offer a similar feature set for around under $300. Unfortunately, the brightness of 250 cd/m2 is not particularly high for a gaming monitor, but should nevertheless be sufficient for most users.
The manufacturer specifies the refresh rate with 144 Hz, the latency for MPRT with 1 ms. It is also important for gamers that tearing is combated with FreeSync Premium technology.
The other key figures of the new Samsung Odyssey monitor include a contrast ratio of 3000: 1, a black equalizer is on board, with which dark areas can be brightened when gaming.
DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, and headphone output are available as connections. In addition to the supplied stand, it can also be mounted using a VESA mount with 100 x 100 mm.
In terms of ergonomics, the Samsung Odyssey G30A has a lot to offer. The Samsung 24 inch monitor can be rotated, tilted, and adjusted in height, and it also supports the pivot function. Flicker-free backlighting is also part of Samsung’s new 24-inch gaming monitor.
Price and availability
In summary, at first glance, the new Samsung gaming monitor is quite an exciting device. The 24-inch model costs $249.99 and $299.99 for the model with a 27-inch panel and can be purchased via the Amazon.com website.
