Samsung announced that you can now pre-order its 55-inch 4K curved gaming display, the Odyssey Arc, for $3,499.99. For those who see the need for such a large, expensive display, buying it before Monday, September 12, could add you to some relatively small but welcome savings. For example, pre-ordering you will receive a $200 gift card from Samsung. Best Buy and Newegg are offering a similar promotion, giving $200 in gift card value to those who pre-order to be used on a separate purchase.
Samsung hasn’t officially shared a release date, though Newegg has confirmed that shipments from its website will begin shipping on Monday, September 12th.
If you held a no-cost reservation for the Odyssey arc last week, when hands-on impressions first went live (you can read my thoughts here), there’s a $100 discount with an instant discount when shopping through the company Samsung. Knocking on the price. Online Storefront. For future reference, in case you missed out on this deal, Samsung generally offers additional savings on its high-end products to those who reserve a preorder, and there’s no financial pressure to preorder. . So, it is a win-win situation for some people.
As far as the price of the Odyssey Ark at $3,500, I can’t say for sure. I had a lot of fun watching it earlier this month but for the time being, and it’s a sight to behold. It’s a TV-sized gaming monitor with a minimalist stand, which lets it easily rotate in what Samsung calls “cockpit mode.” It probably won’t be suitable for everyone, but its $3,500 price makes that kind of clear.
