The Samsung T55 may have endeared experts with its exceptional contrast ratio and deep screen curvature for realistic immersion, but its poor viewing angles and low refresh rate were not up to par. Reviewers also didn’t like its lack of HDR support and poor ergonomics.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Samsung T55 is an entry-level display announced in early 2020 with a bold 1000R curvature to provide an immersive viewing experience. While this might not be as common among the market’s best computer monitors, it allows for a very immersive viewing experience. The T55 also offers 32-inches of screen real estate, and with a native contrast ratio of 3174:1, it is more appropriate for dark room viewing than the Samsung Odyssey G5. The T55 also has an outstanding 98.9% coverage of the SDR color space and an SDR peak brightness level of 317 nits that works well in bright rooms. Its low input lag of 8ms delivers fast gaming responsiveness, and its matte screen finish allows it to handle reflections very well.

Consensus

our Verdict

Top-tier testers concluded that the Samsung T55 was a good fit for casual home and office use. Reviewers from Tom’s Hardware commended it for its 1000R curvature since, during their tests, they endured much less eye strain (also because of its Advanced Eye Comfort Technology) and enjoyed an immersive viewing experience. Reviewers from Rtings were also quite pleased with its 3174:1 contrast ratio, as they confirmed that the monitor displayed deep blacks during their experiments, deeming it safe for dark room viewing. While its 1080p screen resolution may not rival the 1440p offered by the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, experts were still satisfied with the amount of space it allowed for multitasking.

However, the T55’s narrow viewing angles proved a problem for critics, as image accuracy decreased when viewed at an angle. They also didn’t like its low 75Hz refresh rate, which rendered it unfit for gaming. Also disappointing was its lack of support for HDR content and its poor ergonomics – issues it shares with the Samsung CJG56.

The Samsung T55 is not as good as the Samsung Odyssey G3 for gaming mainly because the G3 offers a higher 144Hz refresh rate than the T55’s 75Hz. Still, the T55 has a quicker 19.9ms response time, which makes it better than the G3 at motion handling since it has a slower response time of 30.9ms.

The Samsung T55’s 32-inch screen does not offer nearly as much screen real estate as the 49-inch AOC AGON AG493UCX, and it does not come with support for HDR content. The AOC monitor also features two HDMI 2.0 ports against the T55’s one HDMI 1.4 port and a higher 120Hz refresh rate than the T55’s 75Hz.
