Consensus

our Verdict

Reviewers had mixed feelings about the Samsung Odyssey G3 LF27G35T, approving it for casual gaming. They loved its 144Hz refresh rate, FreeSync tech, and low 5.0 ms input lag. This VA panel monitor has a very high 4,173:1 contrast ratio, and tests revealed deep black levels. Researchers at Tom’s Guide were pleased with its decent 271-nit peak brightness, recommending it for the office. However, testers mentioned that the 1920 x 1080 resolution delivers mediocre text quality. Check out the Samsung JG50 review for a 2560 x 1440 resolution 27-inch gaming monitor. Unlike most budget gaming monitors, this model has HDMI 2.1 ports, which support frame rates up to 120 fps. It covered a respectable 74.8% of the Adobe RGB color gamut, receiving the critic’s endorsement for moderate photo and video editing. However, analysts at Display Ninja clocked in its total response time at a very slow 30.9 ms, observing blur trails, and subsequently didn’t recommend this device for professional gaming. This model also has narrow viewing angles.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Outstanding 144Hz refresh rate
  • Advanced HDMI 2.1 ports
  • Outsanding darkroom performance
  • FreeSync tech

Reason to Avoid

  • So-so Full HD resolution
