    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Something I found interesting is that a YouTuber, Viktor's Reality, did a side-by-side test with the G8 and G7. He said he didn't see much of a difference in picture quality/sharpness between the two panels despite the aggressive AR film.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I really like the QD-OLED but the 21:9 aspect ration and the fact that it was 1440p wasn't the best about it. Overall, I prefer the Odyssey Neo G8 to the Alienware. I'm just waiting on a firmware update at this point to fix some of the issues.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I have the 1003 firmware on my monitor. And I'm not using any third party sRGB clamps.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    For the third time in my 2.5 weeks of ownership I've had odd issues with the monitor when waking up my computer from sleep. The attached picture is an example of one of the visual artifacts I've seen, the other two times it was random flickering on the screen. Powering the monitor off and on...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    The extra $300 in my pocket made it worth it, and I didn't realize how much I like 16:9 more than 21:9 until I compared them side by side. I'm also banking on firmware updates to at least fix color reproduction. The scanlines are there but I haven't noticed them in games yet. Tbh, if I didn't...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Update: I sold my AW3423DW. In dark games with nighttime scenes the AW3423DW is optimal but I would rather have 4k, the 16:9 aspect ratio and the still pretty good contrast that the Neo G8 offers. It also helps that I picked up my G8 for $1,170.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Interesting, my HDMI 2.1 cable came in today, I've plugged it into the Neo G8 and I have HDMI 2.0+ and 240hz selected in the OSD. I checked and even with HDR disabled the option for Nvidia DSR is not there. I wonder if HDMI 2.1 is actually working?

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    At 240hz I see them easily when sitting close to the screen on certain colors. I suspect some people may not know what scanlines look like so they are unable to identify that they're there. I would guess that most panels have the issue and that people don't notice them. If not, it's great that...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I have the firmware version 1003 too, ordered it on the 4th and I still have scanlines. EDIT: I just bought my first HDMI 2.1 cable so I'm going to test if I can use 4k 240hz & Nvidia DSR with it.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    That's what it was, Nvidia DSR is available at 120hz.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Yeah a confirmation would be nice to have, it would be a bit of a bummer if true. 8k looks so good in early 2010's titles like Metro 2033 for example.

    HDR was off on both monitors on this scene.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Yeah, I was testing the local dimming with very little on the screen and with things displayed mostly against completely black backgrounds, and in those cases I felt it Auto was more aggressive. Also, here is a picture comparison in RE2 in a dark scene between the Neo G8 and AW3423DW. My...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    So I received delivery of my Odyssey Neo G8 from Amazon. I have it side by side with my AW3423DW. Yes there are definitely scanlines on my unit at 240hz, I noticed them on my blueish green wallpaper. I have the local dimming set to 'Low' because when it's set to 'High' or 'Auto' I can see a bit...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Snagged it for $1,099, It's funny how it's cheaper than even the G7 on Amazon. I'll be comparing it against my Alienware QD-OLED, I've come to realize I'm not a fan of 1440p so maybe this monitor will suit my needs better.
