Samsung CRG5 27″ Curved Gaming Monitor Review

Believe it or not, there was once a time when choosing the right monitor came down to the display size you needed. Now, monitors use an assortment of different panels, are available in a wide variety of sizes and aspect ratios, and if you’re a gamer, you deeply care about its refresh rate. Combining the best of all those features normally results in a very expensive monitor, which is why most offerings in the market will compromise on certain features.

With a $399.99 price tag, the Samsung CRG5 monitor is an interesting option for gamers, because for some people, it checks off every feature you’d want from a gaming monitor. The 27″ variant is a curved monitor with a blistering 240Hz refresh rate, is G-SYNC compatible, has a high 3000:1 contrast ratio, and a 4ms response time. It does however, have a maximum resolution of 1920×1080, in a segment where 2560×1440 is preferred by some. The thing is, you’d need a real powerful computer if you want to take advantage of a 240Hz refresh rate at 2560×1440, which is why most 240Hz monitors have a 1920×1080 display. In a way, it’s a compromise—sacrificing a bit of resolution for a higher refresh rate.
