Samsung G3 G5 G7 monitor contest at Best Buy

Samsung Odyssey series monitors deliver amazing gaming and productivity. We already gave away the largest G9 monitors in a contest earlier this year. Now you have a chance to win one three different sizes and styles of Odyssey monitors: the G3, G5, and the G7. These monitors offer superior performance. I’ll highlight some of the features that differentiate them. Then you’ll have a chance to weigh in on which features are most important to you to enter this contest.

Display size an obvious consideration for your new Samsung Monitor

I have to admit, I am not into the massive monitors like Samsung’s G9 with its 49″ screen. Firstly, I don’t have the room for one. Secondly, and most importantly, I am an infrequent gamer, so I would not get the benefit of total immersion that a gamer embraces with one or more large monitors. Of the three monitors that we are giving away in this contest, the G3 would be perfect for me with its 24″ screen, a huge improvement over the 21 inch screen I currently use. The G5’s 27″ and the G7’s 28″ wouldn’t be a problem for my space, and I might be in heaven with the extra space (I’d have to try it and see).

Here is a table of some of the other key features found in these three monitors (thanks to Marcus Wong who created this table for his detailed review of these three monitors).

As you can see, there are some clear differences in addition to screen size.

Which feature is the most important when choosing a gaming monitor

Monitors are tricky things to buy. You try to compare models but there are so many features and some of these will not likely weigh on your decision at all. For example, in the monitors Best Buy is giving away in this contest, few people would choose one over the other based on the difference in HDMI video input. HDMI 1.4 is perfectly fine for the G3 with its 1080p display, but the G7 with its 4K display requires the new HDMI 2.1 standard (it supports a 4K signal at 120Hz) or you wouldn’t get the benefit of the higher resolution screen. So, some people might choose the G7 based on its 4k resolution, rather than its HDMI support, and other people will be fine with the resolution of the G3, and spend less money for a monitor that perfectly suits their needs.

And that raises a good point about monitors: the more modern the features, the higher the price. Yes, this applies to technology in general and monitors are not exempt. So when selecting a new monitor many people focus on two or three features and also on the price. For example, my daughter recently bought a monitor and a main consideration was that it was white to match her apartment (and she found exactly what she wanted at Best Buy!).

Think about what you want in a monitor and then enter this contest for a chance to win one of these three monitors.

How to enter

Entering this contest is easy and you can enter in two different ways.

  1. In a comment below, tell us about three features that you think are the most important when you are shopping for a monitor.

  1. 4K resolution and fast response time will let me have pleasant game time, but affordable price is also important

  2. The top 3 important things for buying a monitor are Price, response time when gaming, and the size ( bugger is better ) LOL
    thanks so much for the chance

  3. Resolution, adjustable stand (tilt and swivel, in particular) and size (24″ would be perfect for me, a bit larger than my current 21″)

  4. For me, I need a big resolution, size, and love it when it can also charge my MacBook through USB C. That last one has made my life much easier

  5. The three most important features for me are:
    1. adjustibility/ergonomics – I want to make sure I am able to be the most comfortable possible, and reduce tech neck!
    2. hdr capabilities – I want a wide spectrum of colour and contrast to make editing a breeze!
    3. style/design – I want it to look cool and fit into my space!

  6. For gaming I want the highest refresh rate, resolution inline with the screen size and lowest response time!

  7. Overall size, clarity (resolution) and the refresh rate. Whatever I see, should be crisp, clear and sharp.

  8. Samsung Odyssey G5-I like the curved screen, Ccarity, responsiveness- quick start , value for pricerefresh rate, response time and resolution

    • Most important things for me in a monitor!
      1. Colour quality, brights need to pop and darks need to be dark.
      2. Small/Sleek bezel design
      3. Viewing angles and resolution

      My favorite of all 3 models is the Odyssey G5 because of the HDR10 and the 2.0 HDMI. Overall looks is just amazing + it’s curved

  9. My selections are 1: Color quality, don’t want games to look bad, 2: resolution, as 1440p is a minimum with larger monitors and 3: value for money, as there is a balance to everything.

  10. My three picks are: 1- Viewing angle, as I hate when colors wash out of you are a few degrees off. 2- Refresh rate, as most games I play are fast and require it. 3- Price, as I wouldn’t want to pay thousands of dollars extra at any rate.

    • The size, resolution, and the price are my 3 picks. I stream movies and TV shows on my PS5 more than gaming lately. The Samsung Odyssey G7 would be great with Netflix shows.

    • 4K resolution and fast response time will let me have pleasant game time, but affordable price is also important

  11. -input and output ports, for use with multi devices
    – high response time for gaming.
    -size-when is it ever too big

  12. Hi, 3 most important is price, response rate because I really hate lag and resolution because you want to have an accurate picture of what you are working with. Looks embarrassing if your collogues picks up stuff you should or could have.

    Thank you

  13. Size is important because it has to be big enough for my liking, but it has to match the size of my other monitors.
    Resolution – of course, you have a set minimum you want to use.
    Curve/Flat – Everyone has a preference, but the reality is that it is all based on your needs.

  14. Three attributes that I look for in a monitor are resolution/sharp images, refresh rate/response time, and size/larger is usually better.

  15. It should have tilt and height adjustment in case I want to work while standing, it should have a light neutral color to match my other accessories, and it should have a good refresh rate to support gaming.

  16. Screen size, clarity, and colour. And by colour, I mean I want something discreet (black, dark grey) rather than something flashy, bright, or otherwise distracting.

  17. 1. Should be LED so it is energy efficient and won’t give off so much heat.
    2. Should be dark in colour to match my dark decor.
    3. Should have a fast refresh rate for better gaming experieince.
