Also FYI, I placed an order and then used the cancellation trick, cancel > request lower price, and it gave an additional 5% off making the order $557ish before taxes for the 32" model.

Awesome, been looking for a deal on the G7, just did some double checking on differences between this special edition and the normal one. Colors for exterior lighting is still changeable, the only differences are logos on the outside, and the red boot up screen.

Added two of these to my cart, signed up under my wife's .edu account, and placed the order. Got the conformation email, hit manage order > cancel order > Item will take too long to ship > cancel order. It then pops up saying it will remove 5% if you still purchase. Repeated for the second monitor.

$600 saved, THANK YOU!

I love the 32" 1440 combo. I actually "downgraded" from using 34" ultrawide for years, and found the vertical height to be much more favorable, and the 16:9 ratio to be much more universally used, both in games and in watching 16:9 content. I do have to put the monitor farther away though. I thought about getting a 32" 4K, with the upcoming 32" 4K 144hz monitors, but I can't even get great fps currently on my 1440 with a 3080 so there's no way I can handle 4K at lower fps.

I actually bought this exact same monitor after reading a lot of reviews, but could not stand the VA panel's viewing angles and color shifts, as much as I liked the blacks. The curve was also a bit too extreme even though I generally prefer a curved ultrawide. I ended up returning it and getting the Acer XB323UGX, which is an IPS panel, and found their "agile splendor" IPS way better color production and vibrant, similar to the nano IPS found on LG panels. I didn't even get a deal on the Acer, whereas I had the Samsung EPP discount with the G7, but I prefer the Acer so much more. I didn't mind having a less black background compared to the VA, but I tried switching from IPS to VA previously (Acer Z35p) and also didn't tolerate the switch. I think I'm just going to stick with IPS from now on, as I focus more on the color production/vibrancy and viewing angles way more than the black levels.

I can understand your dislike for VA's color shifts and weaker viewing angles. However, imo, the severity of those issues are very panel specific.

I have one VA panel with very minimal color shift and has excellent viewing angles. I have another older VA panel with some really bad color shifts.

Some VA panels have ghosting issues and black smear on text. Other's don't. Same with IPS screens. A lot of people see the letters IPS and automatically assume its superior. Like everything, there are different grades of IPS and some can perform really poorly.

For example, IPS screens generally have faster response times, but a review of this monitor found it to be as fast or even faster than even some TN screens.

https://www.techspot.com/review/2...dyssey-g7/

In regards to color reproduction, thats a pretty loaded term as it could mean color quality or color gamut. In regards to color quality, IPS wins hands down as there are way more true 10 bit IPS screens than VA panels. But when it comes to color gamut, VA typically has a slight advantage.

Either way, your own eyes are the best judge. I'm currently typing from a LG 32 VA 144hz panel for work paired with a older Dell 4K P2715Q monitor and I have to admit, the Dell just looks more vibrant. I don't do much photography work (although occasionally) but I'm not at the level where it really matters to me.

In summary, the morale of the story is not to lump all VAs into a category.

Full g-sync? What's with the full? I thought g-sync was either on or off?
