The Samsung Odyssey G7 LC32G75T is a high refresh rate gaming monitor. It's part of Samsung's 2020 Odyssey gaming lineup, and it's one of the few monitors available in two sizes: 27 and 32 inches, which we tested. It has a fast 240Hz refresh rate with native FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) support to reduce screen tearing. It's also G-SYNC compatible if you want to use it with an NVIDIA graphics card. The 1440p resolution helps deliver clear images while not being too taxing on your graphics card. It's a well-built monitor with an aggressive 1000R curved screen, which may not be to everyone's liking, but it helps bring the entire screen within your field of view. Its VA panel makes it a great choice for dark room gaming, but even though it has an edge-lit local dimming feature, it performs terribly.

Our Verdict

8.0 Mixed Usage

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is a great overall monitor. It has amazing gaming performance because of its 240Hz refresh rate, outstanding response time, and FreeSync support. It's a good choice for content creators or for watching movies as it can display deep blacks. Unfortunately, it's not ideal for sharing your screen with coworkers due to its narrow viewing angles.

Pros
  • Outstanding response time.
  • Very good reflection handling.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • Reported issues of backlight flicker with certain content.
7.7 Office

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is good for office use. It has a large, 32 inch screen with a 1440p resolution, giving you enough screen space to multitask. Sadly, because of its VA panel, it has narrow viewing angles, which isn't ideal for sharing your screen with others. On the upside, it gets bright enough to combat glare, and it has very good reflection handling.

Pros
  • Very good reflection handling.
  • Exceptional gradient handling.
  • Good text clarity.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
8.6 Gaming

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is amazing for gaming. It has a native 240Hz refresh rate, FreeSync support and is compatible with NVIDIA's G-SYNC. The response time at its max refresh rate and 60Hz are outstanding, resulting in minimal blur. Its narrow viewing angles make it less ideal for co-op gaming, but luckily, it displays deep blacks if you want to game in the dark. We received reports of the backlight flickering with VRR enabled, but we didn't notice any flicker; rather, the screen dims when a certain image is displayed full-screen.

Pros
  • Outstanding response time.
  • Native FreeSync support and it's G-SYNC compatible.
  • Great contrast ratio.
  • Incredibly low input lag.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • Problems with 60Hz VRR.
7.7 Media Consumption

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is very good for multimedia consumption. It has a big 32 inch screen, and it has a high 1440p resolution. Unfortunately, it's not ideal to watch the latest videos with a big group of friends since it has narrow viewing angles. However, it's a great choice for watching movies in a dark room because it displays deep blacks, thanks to its VA panel.

Pros
  • Great contrast ratio.
  • Impressive coverage of the Adobe RGB color space.
  • Exceptional gradient handling.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
7.8 Media Creation

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is great for media creation. Its 32 inch screen allows you to open multiple windows at once without having to scroll too much. However, the screen's aggressive curve may not be to everyone's liking while photo editing. Fortunately, it has impressive coverage of the Adobe RGB color space.

Pros
  • Great contrast ratio.
  • Impressive coverage of the Adobe RGB color space.
  • Exceptional gradient handling.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
7.4 HDR

The Samsung Odyssey G7 delivers a decent HDR experience. It has a great contrast ratio, resulting in deep blacks in a dark room, and it has okay black uniformity. It also has a good HDR color gamut, ensuring it can display a wide range of colors with the latest HDR content. It's not very bright in HDR, though, so bright highlights don't stand out the way the content creator intended. Unfortunately, although it has a local dimming feature, it's terrible.

Pros
  • Great contrast ratio.
  • Exceptional gradient handling.
  • Wide color gamut.
Cons
  • Doesn't get very bright in HDR.
  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • Terrible local dimming feature.

The ergonomics are good overall, and it offers more adjustments than most curved screens. You can rotate it to a portrait orientation, rare for a curved monitor, but it has a limited tilt and swivel range. If you're looking for a monitor with better ergonomics, check out the ASUS TUF Gaming VG258QM.

The back of the monitor has textured plastic on it, and there's a ring of RGB lighting. Cable management is serviced through the stand. The plastic cover comes off so you can place the cables through the stand, keeping your setup clean.

Contrast

Contrast With Local Dimming

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has a great contrast ratio, so it displays deep blacks, which is normal from a VA panel. It has a local dimming feature, but it doesn't improve the contrast ratio because the checkerboard test pattern keeps all the dimming zones on. Note that this contrast ratio is much higher than Samsung's advertised 2500:1 contrast, and there appears to be significant variance in contrast between units.

Since the contrast measurements are quite a bit higher than Samsung's specifications for this display, we remeasured the contrast ratio. We did it with different equipment and even with a different way to measure contrast, but we obtained very similar results. We also tried adjusting different settings to see if that made a difference. With 'Black Equalizer' at 10, we measured a contrast ratio of 3922:1, at '13' it was 3935:1, and at '20' it was 3892:1, so it's not much different from our original numbers. As all of these tests are consistent, we're confident in our measurements.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has a local dimming feature, but like most edge-lit monitors, it's terrible. There are only a handful of vertical dimming zones, and it takes time for each zone to light up when there are fast-moving objects. It causes uniformity issues, especially in the test pattern, but it isn't as distracting in real content because the algorithm doesn't seem as aggressive as the Samsung CHG70.

The Samsung C32G75T has great SDR peak brightness, similar to the Samsung CHG70. It gets bright enough to combat glare, but it's not very consistent with varied content, so large, bright areas of the screen don't get very bright. These measurements are after calibration with local dimming on and brightness set to its max. The minimum brightness is a bit high, which can be an issue if you're planning on using it in a dark room and are sensitive to light.

If you prefer a Samsung monitor that has better peak brightness because it has Mini LED backlighting, then look into the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has just okay peak brightness in HDR. Peak brightness varies considerably between scenes. Small highlights are bright enough to stand out, but large bright areas aren't bright enough to deliver an impactful HDR experience. The screen brightness tracks the EOTF well, but most scenes are a bit darker than they should be. There's also a sharp cut-off at the monitor's peak brightness, resulting in a loss of fine details in bright scenes.

Like most VA panel monitors, the Samsung Odyssey G7 has a narrow horizontal viewing angle. The image loses its color accuracy and looks darker as you move off-center, so it's not ideal for sharing your screen with someone sitting next to you. The curved edges are meant to bring them within your field of vision, so they don't look inaccurate, but it's measured from the center of the screen. If you want a 32 inch monitor with much better viewing angles, check out the Corsair XENEON 32QHD165.

The gray uniformity is excellent. The screen is uniform throughout, and even though the edges are a bit darker, it's not too noticeable. Uniformity is slightly better in near-dark scenes, but the backlight bleed is more noticeable. Uniformity can vary between units, but it's rarely an issue on monitors.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has some uniformity issues when displaying a bright object in a dark scene, but this can vary between units. It looks worse in person than in the photos because the curved screen doesn't show the worst parts. Without local dimming, there's noticeable backlight bleed, and we took a high exposure photo to exaggerate what it looks like, but it's not really what you see in person. The local dimming feature helps fix any issues, but there are still some problems, as you can see in the photo.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has native FreeSync VRR support, and it's certified by NVIDIA to be G-SYNC compatible. G-SYNC only works over a DisplayPort connection.

We received reports that the backlight flickers with VRR enabled. We displayed a test photo that reportedly causes this flicker with VRR enabled, and when the image was displayed full-screen, the brightness of the screen dimmed a bit. It did the same thing without VRR enabled, and when the image was at any other size than 100% scaling, the brightness went back up. The Samsung was tested in SDR, HDR, and with different games, but despite actively trying, we couldn't reproduce the issue. It appears to vary between units, as there are multiple other confirmations of units that don't flicker, but your results could vary.

Update 07/30/2021: We retested the response time at the max refresh rate with the "VRR Control" feature on and off. It has very little impact on the response time at the max refresh rate.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has an excellent response time at its max refresh rate of 240Hz. Motion looks exceptionally smooth, and there's almost no blur. However, it has a slow response time in dark scenes, as seen in the 0-20% total response time, which causes some artifacts, known as black smearing. We recommend gaming with Adaptive Sync enabled, which locks the overdrive mode. If you're gaming on a source that doesn't support variable refresh rates, we recommend the 'Faster' overdrive setting, because the 'Fastest' setting has too much overshoot, and 'Standard' is a bit slower overall with no real benefit.

Unlike the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QM, the Samsung Odyssey G7 has an optional backlight strobing feature, commonly known as black frame insertion. Although the backlight strobing feature can be enabled as low as 60Hz, it still only flickers at 120Hz, causing distracting image duplication. Although the brightness of the display can't be adjusted when this feature is enabled, it'll maintain whatever brightness you set before enabling the feature.

Update 07/30/2021: We looked into the pixel inversion issue reported below again. We can reproduce the issue by displaying a specific test pattern. Adjusting the Sharpness reduces the issue, and setting it to '45' or lower eliminates it on our unit. Unfortunately, this solution also results in a very soft and blurry image.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is flicker-free at all backlight settings, which helps reduce eye strain. There have been reports of flicker with certain games, so we decided to look into it.

We noticed a flicker-like effect when displaying this GIF. It changes the brightness of the screen and causes horizontal lines to appear, and when we close the GIF, this effect stops and the screen returns to normal. The same issue appears even after updating the firmware to version 1009.3, and the new VRR Control setting doesn't seem to change anything in regards to this flicker issue. We can't replicate the same flicker some people have experienced in games (see Refresh Rate) without knowing the exact game and settings used that caused this flicker-like effect. However, we did notice this effect with Local Dimming on, as it seems the backlight turns itself on and off a few times. We also noticed the dimming zones flicker a bit during our Brightness tests. If you experience this issue, let us know in the comments below.

Although this monitor has a native resolution of 1440p, it can display a 4k signal from a PS5. It results in a downscaled image, sharper than a native 1440p signal but not as detailed as a true 4k display. For this to work, Adaptive Sync has to be disabled on the monitor, and the monitor has to be set to 'HDMI AV' mode. It can only accept a 4k signal at 60Hz, though, due to the bandwidth limitations of the HDMI ports.

Compared To Other Monitors

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is a really good upgrade over the Samsung CHG70, and it's one of the best gaming monitors we've tested. It's one of the few 240Hz monitors with a VA panel on the market, so if you want a fast refresh rate and a great contrast ratio, this is the one to get. Although it doesn't have wide viewing angles like some of the 240Hz monitors with an IPS panel we've seen, like the ASUS VG279QM, most people will be happy with this monitor.

Check our recommendations for the best curved gaming monitors, the best 240Hz monitors, and the best 1440p monitors.

Dell Alienware AW2721D

The Samsung Odyssey G7 LC32G75T and the Dell Alienware AW2721D are both great monitors that use different panel types, each with advantages and disadvantages. The Samsung uses a VA panel that can produce deep blacks thanks to its high contrast ratio. The Dell uses an IPS panel that has great viewing angles at the expense of contrast ratio. Both have a low input lag and exceptional response times, although the Samsung includes a black frame insertion feature. The Dell gets much brighter in HDR, but it's limited by its low contrast ratio. The biggest difference is that the Samsung is a curved monitor while the Dell isn't.

The ASUS, on the other hand, has much better viewing angles, and it natively supports NVIDIA G-SYNC technology.

Gigabyte M27Q

The Samsung Odyssey G7 LC32G75T and the Gigabyte M27Q are both great monitors with excellent gaming performance. However, they're different. The Samsung is available in a 27 inch and 32 inch size, while the Gigabyte is only available in a 27 inch. The Samsung has a higher refresh rate of 240Hz and a faster response time, resulting in smoother motion and greater responsiveness, although the difference is not that big and might be hard to notice for casual players. The Samsung is better for dark rooms because it has a VA panel with a better contrast ratio, while the Gigabyte has wider viewing angles because it has an IPS panel. The Gigabyte has a few more features, like a USB-C input and KVM, which lets you control two devices with one set of peripherals.

Dell S2721DGF

The Samsung Odyssey G7 LC32G75T and the Dell S2721DGF are very different monitors. The Samsung has a curved VA panel and is better suited for dark rooms, while the Dell has a flat IPS panel with wider viewing angles. Gaming-wise, the Samsung performs better mainly because it has a much higher refresh rate, 240Hz compared to the Dell's 165Hz. The Dell has better response time at max refresh rate, though, especially in dark transitions. The Samsung is available in a 27 inch and 32 inch size, while the Dell is only available in a 27 inch size.

ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q

Gaming-wise, the ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q and the Samsung Odyssey G7 LC32G75T are very similar. The Samsung has a higher refresh rate than the ASUS, but the difference might not be noticeable to many gamers.

The Samsung is a 16:9 model available in a 27 inch or 32 inch size, while the LG is a 21:9 model that only comes in a 34 inch size. The Samsung has a higher refresh rate, but its response time isn't as good as the LG's because it has more overshoot causing inverse ghosting, as well as slow dark transitions that can result in dark smearing behind fast-moving objects. If you game in the dark, the Samsung is a much better choice because it uses a VA panel with a significantly higher contrast ratio. However, it comes at the cost of narrow viewing angles, so if you need to share your screen with someone else, the LG might be a better choice.

LG 27GP850-B

The Samsung Odyssey G7 LC32G75T and the LG 27GP850-B use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses. The LG has better viewing angles, but this comes at the expense of contrast.
