Introduction

Samsung’s new CJG5 series gaming monitors are basically simpler versions of the CHG70 series.

The Samsung C27JG52 and the Samsung C32JG52 feature a 1440p resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, a high-contrast VA panel, and a curved screen whereas the CHG70 models offer all that, plus some premium features such as 1ms MPRT, FreeSync 2, HDR, and quantum dots.

What’s more, the Samsung J series has a less bulky design; they are less ergonomic but much slimmer and have thinner bezels.

Image Quality

The Samsung C27JG52 and the Samsung C32JG52 are based on a VA panel which ensures true blacks and distinctive details thanks to its superior static contrast ratio of 3,000:1.

Furthermore, the WQHD resolution of 2560×1440 pixels provides a wider field of view, more screen space, and significantly clearer details when compared to the standard 1080p.

Combine that with a 144Hz refresh rate, and you get a gaming experience with a stunning image quality as well as smooth and responsive performance.

Gaming

VA panels are sort of infamous for motion blur as pixels take longer to change from one color or shade of gray to another which results in ghosting or trailing of fast moving objects.

The CHG70 series monitors have a feature that addresses this called ‘1ms MPRT’ which via backlight strobing reduces the perceived motion blur.

Alas, even with this technology enabled, ghosting was persistent though it was more tolerable; you can read more in our Samsung C27HG70 review.

We are eager to see how the CJG52 models will handle motion blur. So far, we know that they have a response time speed of 4ms which can be further pushed using the overdrive settings in the OSD (On-Screen Display).

That’s why if you’re looking for a gaming monitor strictly for competitive FPS, you should stick with a TN display with 1ms response time.

Features

Although the Samsung C27JG52 and the Samsung C32JG52 lack notable technologies such as FreeSync and HDR, they do have their share of useful features.

First of all, there’s ‘Low Input Lag’ which can bypass certain image post-processing to minimize input lag while ‘Black Equalizer’ brightens up the dark areas of games to make it easier to spot enemies and objects.

You will also find optimized settings for different gaming genres including FPS, RTS, RPG, and AOS.

Unlike the CHG70 displays, the CJG5 is completely devoid of screen flickering.

Design & Connectivity

The Samsung C27JG52 and the Samsung C32JG52 144Hz gaming monitors feature a simplistic but modern design with thin bezels, but they lack ergonomic abilities as you can only tilt the screen or VESA mount it.

At the back of the monitor, you will find two HDMI 1.4 ports, a DisplayPort, and a headphones jack. The screen has a light matte coating which will prevent reflections without affecting the picture quality.

Price & Similar Monitors

At the time of this writing, the release date and price of the Samsung C27JG52 and the Samsung C32JG52 are unknown though they should be considerably cheaper than the CHG70 models due to the lack of FreeSync 2, HDR, quantum dots, 1ms MPRT, and design ergonomics.
