Monitor not detected on multiple laptops
I'll admit that I'm an atypical user, not a gamer. I work from home and purchased this device from Amazon so I could view multiple spreadsheet and database applications. Unfortunately, this monitor could only be detected about 25% of the time on each of the three laptops I tried using either Display...

The 5 Best 34 Inch + Monitors - Spring 2022
The best ultrawide 49 inch monitor we've tested is the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9. Monitors of this size are known as super ultrawide because they have a 32:9 aspect ratio. With a 5120x1440 resolution, this is the equivalent of placing two 27 inch, 1440p monitors side-by-side. It has a VA panel that del...

Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor Review
The Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor is expensive, but it offers an incredible (and huge) picture thanks to its class-leading brightness and contrast, as well as its excellent color performance. It handles fast motion very smoothly, and while input lag is slightly higher than we like to see in a high-end gaming monitor, it’s still quite low and should satisfy most gamers. If you’re looking for a massive curved gaming monitor that can easily replace three screens and wrap you up in its picture, the G9 is worth your consideration

And I am now thoroughly spoiled
The Samsung Odyssey G9 costs $1,479.99 — a premium price for a premium monitor like nothing else on the market.

I got a Samsung odyssey g9 over Black Friday and I love it, but I was having some issues getting the monitor to set 240hz with my RTX 3080. I had 240hz set on the monitor and it would let me set 240hz at 1440p or ultra wide 1080p but not at 5120x1440 latest firmware on the monitor and tried a different display port cable and still no luck. The fix I finally found was to go in to nvidia control panel and change display scaling from the monitor to the gpu.
RIPOFF ALERT. This is the old version with new model stickers.
NOTE: This applies only to Amazon Warehouse purchases. Everything looked good until I went to attach the back wire cover, it would not fit; first red flag. Then I went to set the windows resolution and it maxed out at 3840x1080 instead of 5120x1440. Then I checked the menu information and it confirm...

And it was the smartest choice I could have made. The LG 34GN850-B is just a disappointing monitor, there's simply no way around it, while the Samsung Odyssey G9 is impressive and has a strong cool-factor to it, but ultimately still pointless and also problematic in many ways. So don't feel the need to buy extremely expensive monitors just because YouTubers and people on the internet tell you to do so. Learn from my experience.
