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.

  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. I do a lot of gaming so the the thing that are most important for me are:
    1. Resolution. At least 1440p
    2. Refresh rat. 120hz or better
    3. HDR capable. At least HDR 10

    Thes eare 3 of the basic things a monitor would need to ensure a quality picture for gaming.

  2. I think price , monitor size and screen type (curved,flat) and fast response times as well as warranty are all very important things to consider

  3. 1-input and output ports, for use with multi devices
    2- high response time for gaming.
    3-size-when is it ever too big

  4. I have had Samsung phones and I have a Samsung TV would still works, and I have a Samsung monitor which still works but has a little bit of a bug in it with the lighting but it’s still works and I love Samsung products they work well last a good amount of time.

  5. Once thing I have as utmost importance in a monitor is the resolution. As games, video cards, etc. is upgraded and developed, it would be nice to have a monitor that bring out the full visual aspect of the product.

  6. Most important would be the refresh rate preferably 120hz or higher. Second would be the 1ms response time for no noticeable lag. Third would be built in speaker for convenience.

  7. 1. I would select a curved screen as I think it would provide the most immersive gaming experience.
    2. The next factor would be the size as I play at a desk and the screen can’t be too large or I would be sitting too close to really enjoy it.
    3. The next most important factor is the refresh rate as I hate lag when I am gaming.

  8. Price (needs to fit my budget), size (needs to fit my space), resolution (is it for work or gaming )are my starting point when looking at new monitors.

  9. Monitor resolution and durability is what i like most of this thanks for the chance

  12. It is so nice to be shop at Best Buy Price would be first on my list any size is alright with me and fast speed would be nice to have

  13. I look at the size of the monitor for starters because of my age. Then I consider the cost. I love curved monitors so that would help me pick the one I like.

  14. I like the -Samsung Odyssey G5-I like the curved screen high response time for gaming, input and output ports to use for multi devices,– high response time for gaming. and big size

  15. The 3 most important are:

    Size of the monitor as it needs to fit in the desired space
    2- the price of course
    3 – the resolution for the best gaming posible

  16. 1. Screen size – I prefer a large screen but it needs to fit where I intend to use it.
    2. Port variety – I like to plug more than one device into my monitors and my devices have different types of outputs.
    3. Picture quality – bright colours and deep blacks and higher resolutions – I find the better the picture quality the more focused I can be, playing or working.

  17. Monitor resolution is important, I want 1440 with 240hz+ and maybe .5-1 ms response. Cost is an important factor, along with durability and life span of the product.

  18. 1. A monitor with high resolution is essential for me
    2. I prefer larger sized monitors, but also not too big (around 27″)
    3. I also care about the overall aesthetic of the monitor and if it is visually appealing

  19. Size, durability, reliability.

    I want it to be enough screen economy to support my work. I don’t want it to take a hit but I don’t want it to be fragile. I want a screen I can trust. Ratings!

  20. Resolution must be crisp and clear, size (not too big but not too small either) must be able to fit on my desk nicely and price (not too expensive).
    Would love the G7 gaming monitor. Thanks for the chance.

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

  22. The 3 features that are most important to me are: size, resolution and the cost of the product.

  23. 3 features most important are:
    1. size so that it fits into the space designated .
    2. color so that it matches the color of my office decor
    3.price so that it fits my budget.

  24. Prefer a flat panel, high resolution and an adjustable stand! Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. 1) The price is right.
    2) The size is perfect.
    3) The color and resolution are perfect.

  26. I believe color, resolution and intensity are the most important traits of a good monitor.

  27. Number 1. It has to be soft on the eyes with flicker control.
    Number 2. Size is important, so anything under 27” is a big non-no for me.
    Number 3. It must be fast, whether it’s free sync, 4K resolution and/or a fast refresh rate.
