Design and Features

 

The Samsung monitor is a 25-inch widescreen LED gaming monitor using a TN panel with a matte darkblue/black chassis and a sturdy round base. It comes with a HDMI cable, DP cable, power cord, quick start guide, support CD, and a warranty card that explains the details of coverage. Keep in mind that the maximum refresh rate is available only when using DisplayPort or DVI input and is also dependent on your computer's graphics card.

 

For gamers, the 'hot touch' of this Samsung monitor is the 144Hz refresh rate. This is very useful so that you can run games at very high frame rates, this means that you can have ultra-smooth frame rates without the tearing associated. With a normal 60Hz monitor you are not being able to display as many frames as the graphics card is producing. To take advantage of such a high-refresh-rate screen you'll need to have a graphics card capable of playing games at such high frame rates.

 

 

As far as ergonomics, the SHG50 offers multiple options in every direction and is very easy to adjust. You can simply turn your screen by 45 degrees left and right, 90 degrees for landscape or portrait mode, and tilt forward 20 degrees and backward 3 degrees, and its height can also be adjusted by inches. It has no built-in stereo speakers, but you'll probably want to upgrade to a dedicated set to get the optimal sound.

 

You can access brightness, contrast, color saturation, skin, and color temperature using hotkeys on the bottom right of the bezel as well as enable customized viewing modes for theater, gaming, night view and others.

 

It has some quirky features just for gaming too, first of all the Samsung Black Equalizer by providing dark level value on the monitor. Dark areas of the screen will get visible to let you spot your enemies wherever they hide. Second feature is the Low Input Mode that maximizes keyboard and mouse response times to give you the edge in every battle.

 

 

Eye Saver Mode optimizes your viewing comfort by smartly reducing blue light emissions which is harmful for your retina. It reduces eye-strain, especially when using the screen for extended periods of time. Finally the Flicker Free feature which protects your eyes from the constant strain from flickering screens on conventional monitors. So you can use monitor for longer.

 

 

The monitor offers a 144Hz refresh rate, with even including AMD's FreeSync. The 144hz refresh rate helps you reduce visible input lag. Nowadays, the 144hz refresh rate is the standard spec of hardcore gaming monitors and the Samsung SHG50 provides an refresh rate that is fully enough for you to enjoy smooth gaming experience. AMD FreeSync synchronizes the monitor’s refresh rate. So users can enjoy videos and games with smoother frame display without stuttering or tearing.

 

 

Performance

 

Samsung SHG50 performs well with impressive black levels using the Black Equalizer and excels in screen brightness. The monitor is good and bright, showing high white levels of 350cd/m2. With a 1080P resolution, the screen is crisp and vivid and displays rich colors with no noticeable lag.

 

 

The monitor has a good selection of ports, with a pair of HDMI inputs, a DP port, and a two-port USB hub. The screen has a large degree of height and rotation adjustment, which is useful as the screen's viewing angles.

 

For response time, which measures how well a monitor reacts to changes on the screens, is very essential in fast-paced gaming. With just a response time of 1ms, the screen performs very well.

 

The screen can handle multiple game modes. You can optimize the color contrast especially in gray and black colors for shooting games (FPS) like Counter-Strike, Battlefield and Overwatch as well as for role playing games (RPG) like Blade & Soul and Lineage.

 

You can also optimize the screen increasing the color sharpness and contrast to the highest level for simulation games (RTS) like Starcraft & Warcraft. And, finally Increased color sharpness for enhanced focus for games (AOS) like League of Legends & Dota 2.

 

The Samsung SHG50 gaming monitor is an excellent-value gaming monitor. Even if you play games in different genres, you can optimize the screen for your liking. The screen has good specs featuring higher tear-free frame rates made possible by the 144Hz and fast refresh rates. This gaming monitor is exclusively sold by Gamehypermart and is now available to buy.
