Samsung U32D970Q

 

The Samsung U32D970Q is a 32-inch, professional-grade Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) monitor that's beautifully designed. It offers very accurate colors, solid gray-scale reproduction, and a plethora of features.

Sleek design. Sharp UHD image. Excellent color performance. Robust feature set.

Expensive. Huge footprint. Lacks some advanced color settings.

Conclusion If you're a graphics professional looking for a big screen UHD monitor with accurate colors and solid gray-scale performance, the Samsung U32D970Q delivers. Its ability to display intricate detail makes it a good fit for CAD/CAM and video...

A Review of the Samsung U32D970Q – 32″ 970 Series UHD (3840 x 2160) Professional LED Monitor

 

Among the wide selection of professional IPS panel 4K ultra HD monitors available right now for higher price ranges above $900 or even well above $1000, many great options exist but alongside them there are also more than a few monitors with crucial...

Excellent refresh rate ; Excellent sRGB and AdobeRGB color ranges ; Excellent screen size ; wonderful Delta E color accuracy ; Dual DisplayPort 1.2 ports

No HDMI 2.0 ; Expensive ; Very slow 8 millisecond response time ; Poor brightness and contrast levels

Samsung’s U32D970Q 32” 970 Series UHD monitor is definitely a great package for designers who don’t want to spend a fortune on even higher priced 4K professional monitors. It has become an even more attractive offering since its price fell in mid-2015....

Samsung U32D970Q review

 

Supreme colour accuracy from a 32in panel, but the Samsung U32D970Q's imperfections are less forgivable at this price

Great Product

 

I purchased one last August and a second in January. A bit pricy, but if it lasts it will be well worth it for the large format UHD.

Great UHD picture Quality manufacturing Nice stand

I'm shaking my head on this one

 

This is a top of the line monitor. It has great color and the contrast/resolution is excellent. It's great for video content creation and editing

Failed after 3 weeks out of the box. I've asked for a replacement but if that subsequently can't be used for more than a few weeks I'll get something else.

Incredibly color accurate monitor

 

One thing I suggest you keep in mind for a monitor of this resolution is the size and scale of everything. I've seen reviews on the net saying how they set Windows to 125% or 150% size and they just love it. My question to that is, why did you buy a 4K...

This is by far the most beautiful monitor I've ever laid my eyes on, period. Let me back that up with some relevant info. My order of priorities for this monitor were #1 photo editor, #2 video editor, #3 gaming. Sometimes this is a difficult mix to...

Great monitor, but...

 

I RMA'd one and ended up returning the other. However, I did buy both of them as open box items. The first was defective as it began heavily displaying artifacts then subsequently shutting down until it wouldn't start up again. The second monitor I...

Colors are wonderfully accurate. Pleasant modern design. Dual display ports. 4x (2x 2.0, 2x 3.0) high powered usb ports. HDMI compatibility with audio out. One particular feature can be extremely useful for professionals that need to be able to foresee...

This big one that I couldn't live with was the unpleasant surprise that this monitor is natively designed as BGR, meaning that the subpixels, per pixel, are ordered in Blue Green Red instead of the traditional Red Green Blue or RGB. For images videos...

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

This display was part of a very safe workstation with Furman power regulation and still some how failed with what i consider poor support afterwards.

I build 3D Models of utility poles. I sat in front of this display every day for a month. The coating is thick but it cleans well and doesnt smudge, prevents glare. The colors are great as far as i can tell, best backlighting i have owned. In my O-Calc...

When web browsing, Firefox will not show things well in 4k, lots of errors, you have to use internet explorer to browse, and watch 4k videos. I bought this display, and had to wait over the weekend for it to ship, then 3 days shipping, So i only had it...
