I just received my monitor today, and went to Microcenter for additional display port cables. While there, I learn there is an issue with the Odyssey G9 Monitors and they were instructed to pull them all off the floor.
Would someone please tell me what the issue is and whether or not it is okay to use the monitor.
I appreciate any applicable information you can provide.
Apparently there were some issues with QC, some models were not sealed properly causing big issues to the screen itself. So besides the gsync flickering you should be good if it works without blobs/light spots.
The isssues im experiencing just getting the monitor today is i have backlight bleed from thr upper right middle-right corner area and that the screen has a flickering issue when HDR is enabled, this is also whilst adaptive sync and adaptive brighness are turned off. i will be returning my monitor and requesting a new one.
I just returned my Odyssey G9. It began to intermittently flash and I was having a difficult time get the display to wake from standby or recover from a black screen. Rather than take any other chances, I returned it.
If you have not received yours yet, you may want to cancel and go with something else for the next six months to a year, until they have all the issues resolved.
I loved my monitor, but could not take the chance on wasting $1700.
I just cancelled. Everybody that owns one seems to have issues. Not good. Hopefully they will get their act together soon enough. As someone who is in QA for a living, what I am reading is unacceptable. This product shouldn't have shipped at all.
