Samsung’s CRG5 Curved 27-Inch 240 Hz G-Sync Monitor Now Available for $370

Samsung has started sales of one of the industry’s first curved monitors featuring a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate. Aimed at gamers and esports professionals ‘looking for maximum performance’, the CRG5 supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology as well as multiple features designed specifically for this target audience.

The Samsung 27-inch CRG5 display is based on a curved VA panel featuring a 1920×1080 resolution, 300 nits brightness, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, a 4 ms response time, a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate, and a 1500R curvature. The LCD can display 16.7 million of colors and can reproduce 72% of the NTSC 1976 color gamut, which is in line with monitors developed primarily for hardcore gamers and esports enthusiasts.

Three key selling features of the CRG5 are curvature, support for NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology, and a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate, a combination not available previosly. Meanwhile, since the monitor is designed for a very special target audience seeking for extreme performance and immersion, it also supports low input lag mode (which bypasses processing by the monitor’s internal scaler), genre-specific game modes, black equalizer mode that makes ultra dark parts of the scenes look brighter, as well as an on-screen crosshair.

When it comes to connectivity, the CRG5 LCD is equipped with one DisplayPort 1.2 input, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a USB connector for firmware upgrades, and a 3.5-mm audio jack. Meanwhile, the display has a stand that can adjust tilt as well as VESA 75×75 mounting holes.
