    Not sure if this is a good thing or not, but, I will share.

    Today I got a shipping notification that my purchase is 'on the way'.
    Honestly, I didn't remember what I bought.
    Seems that I purchased the new Samsung Odyssey G9, which was on sale here for about 35% off. A limited offer from a website I check often because they have these sort of deals every now and then and you need to be quick because there's usually only a few items available, and when gone, the offer is over.

    The story, apparently I purchased it on January 1st, at approx 2am. I imagine you can all appreciate that particular time. Where, to be honest, there were some other activities of the previous day that *might* have limited my decision making abilities and related memory......

    So, it arrives tomorrow, and I guess I have a CRG9 for sale now....

    Not sure if to be proud of myself, or disturbed........

    Well to complement my previous purchase I found another nice deal, this time on a Kef Kube 8b subwoofer. So now the bass goes all the way down and my desktop set-up is now a full-blown semi-audiophile audio set-up

    After installation of the G9 I can say:
    - it was nice that it mounted exactly as my CRG9, and really did not need any adjustment of the mount (which is good, since having a monitor direct mounted to the P1X is a bit of a pain to adjust considering the weight).
    - Did all the firmware updates and etc, so now things seem to be working OK. But this is a very neccessary thing to get it working as expected and takes several steps. Haven't yet done any driving, but hopefully this weekend.
    - One observation> When looking at it from the side or an angle, the magnitude of the curve is very apparent. To the point that I have to be a bit cautious when entering/exiting the rig due to the proximity of the edge of the monitor. However..... when seated it does not seem so different, actually. I honestly believe this has to do with the curve of the monitor just being more natural when you turn your head left/right. With the CRG9 (1800R), I suspect there was just the adjustment/focus of your eyes for a slightly larger distance to the edges. With the G9 (1000R), this somehow seems easier. No science, just assumption and first impression.

    Not sure I like the white back, but I will see if I can decorate that up with some decals with the vinyl printer. I'm thinking of a nice 'Ferrari' decal across the top/back. If you have other suggestions, would be glad to hear. The back is so glossy/smooth, it's calling out for some sort of decal treatment.

    One thing that I'm missing vs. the CRG9, is that there is only 2 USB ports (CRG9 had 4). I will manage, but it will mean I have to swap connections a bit to convert to using flight inputs (Warthog stick and throttle). Which is not a big deal, but likely I will get another 7 port hub to put somewhere.

    In case anyone is in Europe and looking for a CRG9, let me know. I'll be listing it on my local buy/sell sight, for a 'reasonable' price that will make it go away.

    I've found a good deal to upgrade my i7 8700k to an i9 9900KF and couldn't resist...

    The good: two aditional cores.
    The bad: last time I can upgrade with my current motherboard.
