Also the Samsung gaming VA monitors have plethora of issues and the latest model seems to be doing even worse than previous ones, still broken firmware or other issues that make it seriously unusable even if you like VA and it's crazy curve:What about the Samsung Odyssey G7? 240hz VA. It looks very good from reviews and would be a nice upgrade to this VA. Probably go with 27" this time though for text sharpness.
Looks like the meat wagon is out on the Samsung G7 Odyssey 240 Monitors... https://www.thefpsreview.com/2020/10/12/class-action-lawsuit-brewing-for-samsung-g7-monitors-g-sync-flickering/
So anyone hyping the G7... yeah a bit of a reality check is needed haha. The problems have been reported over and over, by people, by reviewers, ...
Samsung still doesn't seem to care, they should release a flat version with all problems removed and easily have way more decent monitor for sell at a lower price and lower manufacturing costs. That is if the blacks viewing angles are better than HG70, if not... pass on that even at 27", way too annoying and distracting in any movies and shows, especially darker ones, their VA glow certainly didn't help either in that situation.
@MistaSparkul Who knows what panel Philips will use in an unreleased product. TPV (Philips, AOC, etc.) makes and buys stuff, they have monitors with Samsung VAs, BOE IPS, AUO AHVA, pretty much anything on market.
BDM4037UW, remember that one, a BGR TV VA smear fest in reviews.
I couldn't stand the broken firmware with blur added by LG on the 850G, even if it didn't arrive broken it would have gone back for that alone. People have been urging LG to fix the firmware problems since beginning and no update was ever made. I haven't had the Pixio or other with this panel but they may not have the same firmware blur problem. The 850G... skip it, go for 850F with wider gamut, the loss of saturation from viewing angles is quite brutal on the sRGB models, you may as well get the highest saturation variant.
