The G9 comes in a big box – it’s more than a metre long, so be prepared for a surprise when it gets delivered. Inside the box, all of the mounts for a desktop configuration are provided, including the screws. The mounts themselves go quite far into the back of the case, and while the screws seem far too small for the job, everything seems to hold up well. 1000R is an expression of curvature, in that the smaller the number, the more curved the monitor is. The “R” in “1000R” stands for radius, and 1000 is a measurement in millimetres.
- Great blacks and clear as day smooth as well with the 144hz feels soooooo good.
- I love the fact the panel is VA which greatly improves contrast and colors, IPS colors look too washed out to me.
- I then tried going back to a VGA cable and again toggled between VGA and DVI.
- That’s it — after you run the BIOS-flashing utility, reboot your computer, and the new BIOS or UEFI firmware version loads.
You may encounter any bugs that exist in the old SSD firmware which sometimes can have performance issues or even data loss. A window appears on the screen where you either press “2” to update firmware, or “0” to cancel. Samsung sails through the first two sections of our Essentials Checklist with no issues 2d-innovations.com/2023/04/11/exploring-samsung-s-auto-patch-firmware-the-future, including an sRGB mode with no limitations, and proper factory calibration. They do advertise 0.03ms response times which isn’t accurate for this product and inflates the difference between the best LCDs and OLEDs, but motion performance is great so this isn’t a significant issue. On AMD GPUs the “Game HDR” setting is greyed out, whereas on Nvidia that option is available, but when actually testing Nvidia performance I did not enable that setting and found it to reduce accuracy.
Samsung BD-F6500 – update firmware unavailable
Years later, we’re finding this to be a major problem for owners of older players—particularly the models that are no longer supported by the manufacturer. (Yes, we mean you, Magnavox!) If you have one of these older players, you really want to upgrade to…just about any BD player will be better. In general, there are lot of companies who simply stop updating their players after three or more years. This renders them unable to play many of the latest Blu-ray discs. It’s a controversial issue and one that continues to be a hot topic.
Shame, but I purchased this to play blu-ray discs and I’m happy with how easy it to use the player. I purchased this old blu-ray player at a car boot sale for £2.50 GBP. It isn’t unusual to see blu-ray and DVD players at car boot sales, but often they don’t have the remote controls with them! I was pleased to see the Samsung remote control taped to the top of the device. To fix the issue, Samsung eventually advised customers to return their inoperable video players for repairs.
Samsung Odyssey G7 gets a new firmware (and it is awesome)!
You’re getting good viewing angles, a wide color gamut, and a better-than-IPS contrast ratio which makes the G9 better for gaming in dark environments. Color calibration is only average, P3 gamut coverage is below that of the best IPS displays today despite using Quantum Dot technology, and the contrast ratio could be better for a VA. When comparing the Odyssey G9 to other monitors on the market, this new Samsung super-ultrawide stacks up favorably when it comes to response times at the maximum refresh rate. However there are two lingering issues with the G9 that early adopters should be aware of.
Then, you can adjust the back panel for a better viewing angle. Another good reason to buy this gaming PC is its curved back panel. The Odyssey G9 back panel is curved, and it’s important to know exactly what that means. Although it’s not quite as pixel-perfect as its rivals, the G9 has plenty of brightness and vibrancy, and supports G-Sync and FreeSync. When I change the mbp brightness the external monitor should sync according to the same value. Disabled freesync and made sure that the monitor is set to 240 HZ mode.
