Samsung has tuned this display to perfection, delivering performance right on the edge of what the VA panel is capable of at all refresh rates tested. We’re not sure whether they are using variable overdrive – they aren’t using a G-Sync module – but Samsung clearly know their own panel technology well and have paid special attention to dark level performance. Setting HDR on in Windows and correcting the brightness levels you can really see what the Odyssey is capable of. If anything, we had to turn the brightness down a notch to save our retinas burning out!

  • However, you can still take advantage of that 4K resolution.
  • My 27″ triples were good, but not as high res as the Samsung is.
  • If you want your Samsung Smart TV to update automatically whenever new software is available, follow the steps below.

I stand by my professional experience and recommendation to keep the device updated. FWIW.. I have never really had issues as a result of updating firmware on a SSD on a personal computer. Even with the new firmware I can’t hit more than 600MB/sec writes in ubuntu (but reads are 7000MB/sec). Should have gotten the rocket 4 plus over this garbage drive. Ubuntu’s built in benchmark tests both read and write at the same time no?

Our Review Ethos

However, Octopus is a bit more expensive than z3x. ZX Box is a tool that is used to unlock bootloaders and repair Samsung phones. It is also used to create backups, change the language and firmware of a phone, and install custom ROMs.

However, you can check the compatible SSDs list in the official Samsung portal. If you are looking for a solution to a problem you are having with your PC, we also have a number of other support guides that may be able to assist you with other issues. Puget Systems installs Samsung Magician on every Windows system we configure with Samsung drives. Unless it’s removed manually, or Windows has been reinstalled, you should be able to locate the application by searching for “Samsung” in the start menu. Having said that, SSD prices have been coming down throughout 2022, so it may be that you find more affordable 2TB options than before.

Missing iPlayer means your Samsung TV isn’t so smart

Most of Samsung’s monitors use VA panels, and as such, have a relatively high contrast ratio, making them better choices for dark-room gaming. Over in Mac land, you won’t be able to get anything more than 120Hz from this thing which kind of sucks, but even that is a noticeable upgrade to the standard 60hz you’ll see on most screens. There are also some notable brightness differences between the two modes when looking at EOTF tracking. Basically what these graphs are showing us is how well the Neo G9 is producing the exact brightness levels that the content requests. For HDR, you expect it to follow the EOTF tone curve, and that means that when 500 nits is requested, 500 nits is displayed.

The Gigabyte AORUS FV43U is the whole package, if you’re in search of the best monitor for PS5. At 43 inches, this massive display is not for the faint of heart . But, it’s perfect if you’re looking for an epic visual experience.
