Samsung CRG50 Curved Gaming Monitor

Gamers spend hours staring at their screens. And when you're in pursuit of even the slightest advantage over your opponent, investing in a quality monitor can really pay off.

The Samsung CRG50 Curved Gaming Monitor is a feature-packed 27-inch screen with plenty that will appeal to the gamer in your life. It looks good too, boasting a slim stand and immersive 1500R curved display to really pull you in. The display is framed by slim bezels on three sides, making it a real treat for the eyes and a good pick for a multi-monitor setup. 

The 1,920 x 1,080-pixel VA panel is paired with a blistering fast 240Hz refresh rate, so you get super fluid and responsive gameplay. Getting a high refresh rate screen is one of the biggest favours you can do yourself – everything from shooters to racing games will just look and feel better. In addition, the Samsung display is G-Sync Compatible too, which pretty much solves issues like tearing and stuttering.

There's even a dedicated Low Input Lag Mode to minimise response times for the most competitive games. A built-in Eye Saver Mode also minimises blue light when it's time to wind down for the day. 

For display inputs, you get one DisplayPort 1.2 and two HDMI 2.0 ports, plenty for most modern setups.

The CRG50 Curved Gaming Monitor is available at S$548 from your usual consumer electronics stores, including Challenger, Courts, Best Denki, Harvey Norman, and Gain City. You can also buy it online from Lazada, Shopee, or Amazon.sg
