With Black Friday over, many great deals have finished that we aren’t likely going to see coming back as Cyber Monday deals. There are still a few great deals left over, such as this deal on the Odyssey Neo G9. Samsung is still discounting it massively by $800 down to $1,500 from its usual $2,300. But you should pick it up quickly since we aren’t sure when exactly the deal will expire or if it will show up again for Cyber Monday. We’ve already seen similar deals end in the past few hours, so if you like it, pick it up!

Why you should buy the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9

The Odyssey Neo G9 is a beast, and it might well be an odyssey once you go from one end of the screen to the other. At a whopping 49 inches, this is one of the largest ultrawides on the market, being able to fit two 27-inch panels side by side if you wanted that extra productivity boost or extra monitor. The QHD resolution across the screen also means you can get two QHD images if you want to, and that’s mostly powered by Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology which is similar to QLED. That means it creates billions of pixels for your screen and over 2,000 individually adjustable brightness zones. Even better, you get Quantum HDR2000, making the Odyssey Neo one of the brightest monitors on the market with a peak brightness of 2,000 nits and excellent HDR.

Of course, it’s no slouch in other areas, either. If you have enough cash to buy one of the best Black Friday gaming PC deals, you could push the monitor up to 240Hz on QHD resolution, which is somewhat scary. What’s even more impressive is that it can still hit a 1ms response time, even at 240hz and on QHD resolution, so you can push your gaming to the max. Samsung also throws in G-Sync and AMD Freesync Pro, so whichever GPU you go for, you’re covered in the V-sync department.

All things told, it’s not likely that there are a lot of graphics cards that can push the Odyssey Neo G9 to its limit, but if you have one of them, then at least this deal from Samsung bringing it down to $1,500 makes the hole in your wallet smaller. That said, if you want something a little more reasonable, check out some of these other Black Friday monitor deals that are still floating ongoing, at least for the time being.

MSI Bravo 15 -- $800, was $1,000

The MSI Bravo is a good starting place if you're just getting into the world of PC gaming. It has quality components, but nothing too flashy or expensive. It's compact at just 15.6-inches, but the screen still has a 144Hz refresh rate and 1080p resolution. The main money saver is in the AMD Ryzen 5 processor. The graphics card is an impressive Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050, which is where most of the budget goes. It skimps a bit on memory, with a standard 16GB of RAM but only 512GB of storage on its SSD.
