When it comes to spectacularly silly gaming monitors, it doesn't get more spectacular or silly than the 49-inch Samsung Odyssey G9, a curved QLED gaming monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate and a 1000R curved screen. 

Usually an eye-watering $1,399, Amazon just lopped $500 off the price for its Prime Big Deal Days sale, bringing it to a new all-time low of just $899.

Peak gaming performance

Samsung's 49-inch Odyssey G9 is one of the most insane gaming monitors on the market, with epic resolution, QLED lighting, 240Hz refresh rate, NVIDIA G-SYNC, FreeSync, and more.

The spec and feature list of the Odyssey G9 is frankly terrifying. It's a 49-inch display, sporting 5120 x 1440 resolution. That means it can display two full-size 1440p screens side-by-side. It has a 1000R curved display, matching the curve of the human eye to reduce strain and make viewing a more pleasant experience. 

It features Quantum Dot technology and QLED to provide a very bright and vivid picture, and its 240Hz display will make for the smoothest gaming experience imaginable.

It also comes with a nifty stand for height, swivel, and tilt adjustments. 

If this monitor is just too big or too expensive for you, there are a couple of great alternatives also available in the Amazon Prime Big Deal Days sale. There's a cheap LG Ultrawide HD number for just $176, or this LG Ultragear 4K UHD monitor for $576 if you want a higher resolution. the Odyssey remains our favorite pick, however, thanks to the massive $500 discount it has right now. Move fast though, as this likely won't be around for very long. This is a very popular and well-rated monitor, with more than 6,500 Amazon reviews and a 4.4 out of 5-star rating.
