EDIT : Answer from Samsung HQ about scanlines with Odyssey G7/G9/Neo G9 : https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/computers-it/answer-from-samsung-hq-about-scanlines-with-g7-g9-n...
Me and my friend whom bought this near end of last year also get these scanlines (and the coil whine when it happens) from those sites and some games.
I noticed this the time i bought it but after few tweaks in black equalizer and brightness it was ok on the games i was playing...at the time... or that i didn't noticed them enough. But recently i started playing Wolfenstein 2,(and new powerful gpu am able to ramp up the graphics) due to alot of lighting in that game i noticed the scanlines far much more and ruining the game. And now am seeing more on other games .. more rarely but at the right angles and lighting... it's abit offputting.
I been looking around trying to find a fix but seemly there is none 😞 so please samsung.. find a fix as it is the only thing makeing this a great monitor.
I bought the same monitor in June 2021....have the same problem.... Scanline when on browser or black image in game menu for example......... Its so bad... 700€ and after 1 year of people talk about this.. Samsung ignore this problem.... I think i have to return it for a refund... I dont want another faulty monitor.... Its not a mine monitor problem....really bad
Same for me. I dont know but i think its normal. Or someone got G7 without scanlines???
Same here. On firmware 1011.0 I noticed it for the first time when using Windows 11s dark theme with black equalizer set to 11. Setting black equalizer to anything lower or equal to 9 or higher or equal to 13 (for me 13 is too dark, it is losing some shadows) fixes it on basically every page I tested.
What I just found is that the issue does not occur basically at all when using Chrome (no matter the black equalizer, no matter if it's full-screened or not), while on Firefox I can reproduce it easily on mentioned black equalizer settings... At least on (Arch)Linux which I am using at this particular moment.
Edit: n Windows 11 Chrome result is not so spectacularly better, I found that this crazy broken ufotest site still generates scanlines, but on other sites from the list, including Asus wallpapers, its fine. While on Firefox its bad.
