2 Week Update:
Starting to hear ticks in the panel. One of two things come to mind, Heat is causing parts in the monitor to expand and just rub against another part or glue is becoming undone. So far still flawless visually. More updates as the ticking progresses.
1 Month update:
Ticks n noises stopped n everything is still as great as great as day 1
The production dates are of importance to this specific statistic. The pre-july models SHOULD come with a blue round sticker indicating QC was rechecked and the bottom portion of the box may have new tape over it. 8th and 9th digit of your serial number is used to determine the manufacturing dates in case anyone is interested. "N" Stands for 2020 and the number after "5,6,7" corresponds with the production Month which I am sure there will be more in production as the year continues.
The importance of these dates is purely statistical and the primary concern for issues would be the backlight bleeding and glitching issues with Freesync on. By no means this applies to everyone who received their monitors in proper working condition but to those affected out of the pool of collected results. Normally I shy away from these but investing north of 1k has my research instincts firing on all cylinders. With that said, I would like to put it in perspective to the enthusiasts who want it laid out in easier terms.
May production dates were a coin toss of near 50/50 as notified by the packaging serial number N5
June production models were the most affected according to the pool of collected serial numbers and reviewers.(N6)
July productions were the very least affected and research shows samsung revised their QC guidelines. (N7)
So your chance of having a fully functioning / no bezel separation model for the July production dates are high and as long as the carrier delivering your package does their diligence, you will most likely be in the clear.
Again the issues mentioned above are purely statistical and based on a group of reddit members. Keep in mind, negative reviews happen more quickly than those who have positive experiences with the product. I am positive that there are many positive experiences not publicized and as I am writing this, the 52 reviews on amazon is not the whole population of G9 users.
My biggest issue was table size and after researching the specs, realized I will have little to no room for my keyboard and mouse pad. I decided to have a desk mounted solution which amazon carries and it has worked out perfect for me and my other ultra wide monitor without a hitch. I will be writing a review on that as well. Link for the mount here: https://www.amazon.com/WALI-Monitor-Adjustable-Capacity-GSM001XL/dp/B07NLMLLT6/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=heavy+duty+monitor+mount&qid=1601493145&sr=8-5
Now for the monitor experience itself! (Finally)
Holy SH! batman! The ever so small dream of being in the future like some sci fi movies you probably won't be able to enjoy on this monitor due to it's 32:9 aspect ratio.... well the dream is now finally a reality and it's great! Not to say this is my first experience on an ultrawide but with the 1000r curvature, this truly is more eye pleasing and has me on the hook. Some say the angle is too aggressive but I believe the general consensus would say, you will adapt my overly critical friend. Shopping on amazon and searching for Odyssey G9 issues was never so much easier on this monitor. The initial settings Samsung has it pre-set to did cause some ghosting but with a quick search on google, the issue was solved and understood. (adjust your response time to "standard" and ghosting will be gone). I have tested functionality with free sync on looking for glitches or screen tearing which I have not been able to replicate. I may have to do further testing and more adjustments in graphical settings in an attempt to replicate some of the issues however I am starting to believe this could be due to cable choices of majority users (factory Samsung provided cables). I am by no means a cable engineer but I have done plenty of research which shows a quick cable change to a more superior put these issues to rest. HDR mode functions without a glitch, 240hz settings with freesync (in monitor options) work fine again without tearing or flickering, however I do not believe my GX701 or the 2080's current software is capable of recognizing this monitor as a gsync monitor so further testing and updates will be provided as I dig deeper into this option filled monitor.
Now the main reason why I opted for this monitor was 2 things. The curve, and future proof. This monitor is full of features where the future is headed. Upgrading the monitor would most likely be the least of my worries for any of my other future hardware changes. I mainly use my computer for productivity and I do enjoy good quality gaming such as COD / Destiny 2 which is not as demanding as some of the other games out on the market. This monitor is more or less perfect for my application and truly sets a new standard to my home office / man cave vibe.
I do currently have a small hiccup but I do believe the upcoming firmware updates will take care of these issues.
-Turning off the computer does not turn off the monitor. (every single monitor I have had in the past never had this issue and they were all samsung monitors on this specific laptop).
****fixed**** samsung's website has a software (not firmware) for this monitor. Installed it and everything went back to normal correcting this issue.
-Gsync functionality with my current graphics card 2080 max q (laptop) does not give me the gsync functionality. (software update waiting from nvidia, and yes my laptop has a built in gsync monitor)
In terms of Cable, I am currently using: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087QJ4WHR?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share 10ft cable as my laptop sits to my left and the monitor stand base to my right. The excess is just enough (wish it was 1ft longer) for proper cable management.
Conclusion:I personally have no issues with Samsung's Odyssey G9. I have returned 1 prior to this as I purchased it from best buy and video caught the fedex driver dropping my package and the production date was N5 meaning May of this year with a blue QC sticker. I didn't even bother opening and brought it straight back in for the return. The one I am currently reviewing is a N7 (July Production date model) and with much confidence I opened this package with a smile and am very pleased with this monitor hence my 5 star review.
It has been well over a month with no additional software downloads or changes to my hardware. Everything works perfectly fine. I haven't heard any crackling noise and there is no light bleed.
Added some photos to help and entertain you folks of my set up!

This is by far my favorite.
- A lot of real estate to work and play on.
- A lot of people have complained about the HDR, but honestly it blew my mind compared to my HDR400 display, so I am satisfied.
- Fast Refresh Rate
- Amazing Colors
- The Curve.
- Dimming Zones are 100% useless, I turned them off right away, it literally splits the screen in ten vertical slices, as you move your mouse across. A whole tenth of the screen become brighter then the rest.
- The back cover is difficult to get off. I ended up leaving a USB extension cable to the service USB port so that I don't have to remove the cover every firmware update.
I have not noticed any flickering with my unit.
1) My monitor is now clicking when it's first turned on and turned off. For over an hour I keep getting clicking noises from the bottom corners of the screen. -1 Star
2) The area of the screen right above the power button. The bezzel seems to be pulled away a bit from the screen, which causes that area of around 3 cm squared to be visibly brighter then the rest of the screen, even in light scenes. If I massage the bezzel a bit when I first start up the computer it goes away.. But that's ridiculous. I have to massage it every morning it seems. -2 Stars.
l think the extreme curve is the root cause of these issues, Samsung probably need to instead use a metal fram or something with 0 flex.
Edit 2: The brighter part over the power button seems to be also goes awat after the monitor has been off for 5 min. Also HDR is buggy, sometimes it works other times it does not, seems like a windows thing though.
Honestly seems like samsung is at the forefront of the future gaming monitor. I guess going with such an extreme curve was a risk. But they should have done a bit better with the QC, my final verdict after using it for 5 days is 3 starts, -2 ( for the clicking issues, and weird bezzel pulling away from the display issue)
Still love it and will be keeping it, and would probably buy again.
Samsung's VA and FHD made me tip towards Dell. Also, I've always had Dell Ultrasharp monitors and never was disappointed.
But then Samsung released the CRG90 with QHD resolution, the same 1800R curve (vs Dell's 3800R) and high refresh rate. Totally won me over and bought it right away.
Box came in with no damage and obviously never opened before. So I was happy with that.
Assembly was quick and easy. Never actually touched the display until it was on my desk.
Then I noticed huge hand prints all over the left and right edges of screen. There were not bare oily hand prints, more dusty glove prints from whoever packaged it. A quick dust off with microfiber cleaned them right up.
Struggled a lot with the provided cables. Power is only 5 feet. Considering the routing in the back panel and through the mount's arm, nearly 2 feet are already gone. So you better have an outlet nearby.
DP, HDMI and USB cables are 6 feet each. Pretty standard but again, this monitor is huge; 4 feet across so again with the routing through the back panel and arm, there' no a whole lot of room to do good cable management.
But, with a bit of patience and reorganizing the desk, all worked out fine.
Then I plugged it in the PC using the provided DP cable, wow was I amazed at the.... CRAZY BRIGHT, PERMANENT LIGHT STREAK IN THE BOTTOM CENTER OF THE MONITOR!!
So I'm returning the unit for a refund. Still wondering if I'll replace it or buy a Dell U4919DW instead
Amazon has make it super easy to exchange the unit. Got the new one and it's perfect.
Of course there's a lot of backlight bleeding, and the colors are no where near what an IPS can deliver. But I knew that when I decided to go VA. Oh and gaming on this is insane!
So, adjusted for 4 stars. The fifth star would have been for longer cables. At that price, I would've expected as much.
You should also make sure that you have a minimum of an RTX 2080 or you will not be able to push the native 5120px1440px120hz.
I was lucky since mine has no backlight bleed or dead pixels like some others have had.
Only real complaint I have is that some games have stupid developers that intentionally block you from using the native resolution (such as Blizzard's Overwatch) and leave you with black bars on the left and right of the monitor (the developers of Overwatch responded saying that a wide resolution gives an 'unfair advantage' which is nonsense since they could simply allow others to just run an ultrawide resolution on their standard monitor).
Luckily there are good developers out there (such as psyonix, which made rocket League) which allow you to use any resolution you want.
