It took a while, but Samsung's big, curved Odyssey monitors are available for pre-order. 


Announced at CES 2020, the Odyssey lineup is aimed at gamers and consists of three models: the humongous, 49-inch Odyssey G9, and the slightly less extreme Odyssey G7, which comes in 27- and 32-inch sizes. 


At CES, Samsung revealed the monitors' specs, which include a QLED display, 5,120 x 1,440 pixel resolution, and 1,000 nit brightness levels for the G9. 

The G7 models have a far humbler VA display panel, and 2,560 x 1,440 resolution with 600 nits brightness. All three models have a 1ms response time and a 240Hz refresh rate. 


What makes these super special (besides the fancy design and the blue lighting on the back) is the extreme curvature of the screens, which matches the curve of the human eye according to Samsung. The company calls these monitors "1,000 R," which corresponds to the radius the monitor's curve would deliver if it formed a complete circle. The Odyssey models are, by far, the curviest monitors in Samsung's lineup.

Another notable difference between the G9 and the G7 is back design. The G9 has a glossy white back with noticeable, sci-fi notches and grooves, whereas the G7 has a slightly more conservative, black rear.

And now, we also know the price for all three models. The 49-inch Odyssey G9 costs $1,699.99, the 32-inch Odyssey G7 costs $799.99, and the smallest monitor in the bunch, the 27-inch G7, costs $699.99.

All three variants of the Odyssey are now up for pre-order over at Samsung's website, as well as select retail stores. The shipping date is July 13.
