Set up next to the ESL stage at this year’s PAX Australia, Samsung are showing off two new gaming monitors ahead of their official launch into the Australian market.

First up there’s the 27-inch Samsung CRG5. Boasting 1500R curvature, a 240Hz refresh rate and support for Nvidia’s G-SYNC tech, it’s pretty much the tech-loaded Samsung gaming monitor I wish the brand had led with when they started their most recent push into the gaming hardware space. 

In the US, the CRG5 is priced at US$369. Local pricing is to be announced.

A successor to the previous CHG49, it’s a 5K curved gaming monitor with a glorious 49-inches of screen estate. In person, this thing looks gorgeous. Of course, there are a few tradeoffs that come with the larger form-factor. You don’t get G-Sync and you only get a 120Hz refresh rate.

In the US, the CRG9 is priced at US$1299. Local pricing is to be announced.

Disclosure - Samsung covered the cost of our flights and accommodation for PAX Australia 2019.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
