If you're on the hunt for a new gaming monitor as a home setup upgrade or a holiday gift, the Samsung 32" Odyssey Neo G7 curved gaming monitor is currently on sale.

The gaming monitor usually retails for $1299. However, Samsung has launched a deal on the Odyssey Neo G7 for a limited time, cutting the price by $200 (or 15%). The sale has brought down the cost to $1099.

Gaming monitors differ from other products on the market by focusing on a few features that boost gaming experiences. The resolution and refresh rate are the most important aspects of a gaming monitor so they can display games and media at their best, and as a bonus, gaming monitors may also use technology including G-Sync to reduce lagging or delays.

The 32" monitor (16:9 aspect ratio) is also curved for immersive gameplay and has an adjustable stand. As a bonus, you can swivel or pivot the screen to display content vertically rather than horizontally.
