The new CJG5 series is available in 27-inch and 32-inch versions. Both feature WQHD (2560 x 1440) curved VA panels with contrast ratios of 3000:1 and minimal bezels.
As these displays are aimed at gamers, they come with high refresh rates; 144Hz, to be exact. While some will argue otherwise, 1440p@144Hz (or higher) is generally regarded as the sweet spot for PC gaming.
Both monitors come with a 1800R curvature—the same as Samsung’s CFG70—which the company claims minimizes eye fatigue by reducing the change in the user’s focal distance. Port-wise, they feature two HDMI inputs (2.0 and 1.4) and a DisplayPort. No G-Sync or FreeSync, sadly.
“Due to the rapidly increasing demands of gaming monitors, we sought to offer competitively-priced gaming monitors for more users to benefit from premium technology,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
While Samsung calls these monitors “affordable,” it only revealed the UK prices: £309.99 for the 27-inch and £359.99 for the 32-inch version. Converting to dollars and taking into account taxes, the smaller display should cost somewhere between $300 to $350, which isn’t bad for a 27-inch monitor with this resolution and refresh rate.
