Hello guys!
So I plan on buying a new monitor that has all you need.
I'm trying to decide between these to:
Samsung odyssey (https://www.amazon.com/SAMSUNG-49-inch-Odyssey-G9-LC49G95TSSNXZA/dp/B088HH6LW5)
Alienware 34"(https://www.amazon.com/Alienware-Curved-NVIDIA-Edgelight-Monitor/dp/B07YLGH9Q5/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=alienware+34&qid=1602956502&sr=8-1)
I'm inclined to buy the Alienware because I've seen more bad reviews for the odyssey and out of factory faults.
Which one should I get for gaming but also for color accurate?
Any other suggestions?
Thank you!

I have the G9 and I can tell you it is Mind-blowing. Though unless you are ready to turn down the settings it can be a bit soul crushing on performance at this resolution. However my experience has been a mixed bag. I cant get 240hz to work at all in anything but the desk top, but since nothing I am playing at this resolution runs anywhere near that I guess I am ok. In RDR2 I can only hit a stable 60 at custom settings and to get that I have to upscale the resolution a bit. Keep in mind, with this wide of an aspect there is a lot more for the game to render at once so the performance hit is pretty large. I don't know if I would recommend this product though. These monitors have had quality control issues and it seems a lot of people have had to RMA their monitor. I love mine and from those who have a working one we all agree it is a dream. So it is up to you if you want to roll the dice or not.
