However, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 has a major flaw in the form of scan lines when users are running it at 240Hz. It doesn’t happen on all Neo G8s out there, but it’s a common complaint that we’ve come across. It should be okay after a few firmware updates, but we recommend buying from a seller that will let you return it no questions asked if in case you want to try your luck. However, you can’t run its HDMI slots at version 2.1, and you can only select HDMI 2.0+ in the OSD. The PS5 and Xbox Series X won’t run at 4K 120Hz because of this limitation.
Depending on the exact model and device capabilities, a Samsung Blu-ray player may be able to update the device software and firmware via USB Flash Drive, burned optical disc or straight over the Internet. If the Blu-ray player is rejecting an update over USB, try one of the other two methods if the model is compatible with either. Change video formats to MP3, MP4, AVI, WMV, MKV, 3GP, or other file formats.

Strangely enough this site never came up while searching for reviews of the Neo G8. Please contact Samsung sales & support if nothing works for you. If your power cable is working perfectly, check your main electricity board. It has a meter which shows the frequency of electricity. You can also buy a frequency meter to check the frequency of your electricity if your board lacks one. Note that the HDMI port is limited to 5120×1440 at 60Hz or 120Hz at 3840×1080.
- I even updated the software for this monitor as it had an old software installed.
- The common reason for the Samsung monitor not displaying is it’s turned off, it’s hibernating, or the display driver is outdated.
- Note that there is always some disparity between how emissive objects and non-emissive objects appear.
Second, i would have liked to see an app for controlling the rgb instead of using on-screen controls. Other than that, i have no complaints and will be enjoying this monitor for a long time. Hdr games come to life and g-sync ensures that everything, even games at 50fps, appear buttery smooth. I have seen the screen flicker issues everyone is talking about. Highly recommended when you purchase this keep in mind this screen is like a phone it has firmware updates. You have to use a usb flash drive to download the update to then plug the usb into your monitor and go to settings then up update it to utilize 4k.

Anything under a 3080 or 6800xt would be a bad idea haha. Mostly used for gaming with some work from home action. Perfect for gaming because of the refresh rate, HDR is pretty ok on it.
Well, the biggest problem that I’ve come across isn’t the flickering, I’m glad to say that has totally gone. But in general, using Windows at 240Hz is just so smooth, it’s a massively noticeable difference to me even when just browsing around and doing some pretty standard stuff like http://baudoin.com/ocean/2023/04/10/unlocking-the-full-potential-of-your-samsung/ email, web, and video. The video itself looks absolutely stunning on this screen. The stand also has a pop-out hook for when you want to hang your headphones up, though it’s a strange position to hang behind your monitor.
There was a good array of vibrant-looking neon shades such as bright pinks, oranges and greens. Pastel shades appeared more saturated than intended, particularly centrally, but were more muted compared to the vibrant neon shades and also showcased good variety. Whether gaming, watching video content or on the desktop some will enjoy the extra vibrancy of the native gamut. But for those seeking a more muted and toned-down appearance, more ‘as the creators intend’, the sRGB emulation setting (‘Picture Mode’ – ‘sRGB’) may be preferred. We made similar observations on Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The environments in the game showcased the red push to brown shades and extra ‘pop’ to various green shades quite readily.
