You still haven’t seen anything when you believe you’ve seen it all. I was aware of what to expect before entering the space to use the Samsung Odyssey Ark 55-inch for the first time. However, nothing could have prepared me for this amazing huge monitor.
The Odyssey Ark is a high-end gaming monitor that gives a TV-like experience in addition to having all the features you need in a display for a PC.
It features a 55″ 1000R curved display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, allowing you to view up to five different “screens” or streams of content at once in landscape mode. It also has the crazy ability to rotate Ark vertically for up to 3 different content streams. The screen is so large that you can fully immerse yourself in content and games from either direction, so Samsung calls it “your personal game theater.”
It’s on the truly premium end of the spectrum for Samsung’s range of computer monitors, and that’s because it combines the features of both Samsung’s premium TVs and computer monitors. Notably Samsung’s Neural Quantum Processor Ultra, HDR+ support, Dolby Atmos audio, and the Frame TV’s frosted anti-glare display. I have to say that the display is excellent and offers great viewing angles even up close.
Interestingly, I found Odyssey Ark particularly appealing. This is thanks to the excellent multitasking and cable management features it offers. Come to think of it, many gamers set up multiple screens so they can perform multiple tasks at once, such as watching videos, reading emails, and instant messaging while gaming. And that usually means a bunch of cables hanging from your desk, and on the Odyssey Ark, from the back of the device he has a single cable coming out and plugging it all into Samsung’s “One Connect Box.”
