Planning is a crucial part of making any big purchase – even more so when it’s related to a hobby you invested your time and effort in. With the year coming to an end and the excitement of new games being released in 2022, for many gamers in Malaysia, it is perhaps time to upgrade your gaming system for smoother gameplay and uninterrupted battle wins.


One of the most important parts of any gaming setup is the monitor. The right gaming monitor gives you the ultimate experience as intended by game developers and rouse your senses to make the split-second decision in the battleground. Whether you’re a competitive gamer or just starting your journey of becoming the MVP – here are some qualities that you should take into consideration for your next gaming monitor purchase:


  1. Supreme visual quality

Some might think the screen size is the most important aspect to consider when investing in a gaming monitor, but one of the features anyone should aim to have is a screen with sharp and defined visual quality. This is especially important for thrill-seekers who take solace in open-world games such as Grand Theft Auto V or No Man’s Sky, where you spend hours exploring new cities, areas, and completing missions. Open-world games are visually rich and created to transport you to another reality – and having a monitor that can spark your senses and bring your game to life will surely create an electrifying experience.



  1. Rapid refresh rates

Have you ever entered a battle royale game like PUBG or Fortnite, had a faceoff with an enemy team, and lost because your screen didn’t catch all the movements during the battle? One misstep can be the difference between victory and defeat, so if you’re a fan of action-packed, fast-paced games, refresh rates should be one of your top priorities to ensure movement is accurate and the visuals are clear, so you will want to consider a gaming monitor that has capabilities to refresh its screen at a high rate each second. Gamers are now opting for 120hz to 240hz, but of course, the higher refresh rates, the better it is.


  1. Realistic and immersive gameplay

As games have become more realistic, monitors have evolved over time to cater to gameplay needs. With many high-definition open-world games available today, many gamers have opted for a curved screen for extra immersion and improved picture quality. Much like the real world, curved screens mimic in-game scenery to be more realistic. There are added benefits of gaming on a curved screen as well, such as reducing eye strain and providing a wider field of view.


With all these qualities in mind, finding the perfect gaming monitor can still be a challenge. To help you get the finest pick from the industry, Samsung Malaysia Electronics has recently announced the local availability of its much-anticipated next-generation curved gaming monitor, the Odyssey Neo G9. Available at Recommended Retail Price of RM9,499, purchase your own Odyssey Neo G9 through the Samsung Official Store, Samsung Authorized Resellers or Partners’ stores today.
