We're sorry to hear that! How is the monitor connected to the PC? Have you tried another source?

Re: flickring on 32in Odyssey G7 curved monitor

Hi Lou.

Sorry for interfering but its related to the flickering problem on this monitor. I am planning to buy this monitor but as far as i can see this is a very common problem (i did my research).

 

I know that as a Moderator you may not have this knowledge but do you know if Samsung acknowledged the flickering problem and is working on a resolutiuon?

 

Regards.

Samsung has been working with NVidia to resolve this issue. The website https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/ is listing the necessary driver for the Odyssey G7 and G9 monitors as 'upcoming' from NVidia, which will enable the G-Sync compatibility.

Re: flickring on 32in Odyssey G7 curved monitor

But it shows the 32 compatible already, should I send it  for a replacement or repair? And is it a firmware problem or hardware problem? Thanks

This may as well be false information. The flickering issue is still persisting for almost every 32" G7 user despite being listed as compatible.
Nobody should buy this monitor until there is an actual fix as confirmed by a third party reviewer, and by then, there will be far better options for the same price.
