Not for Gaming


I think if you want a nice monitor for photoshop, vidio editing or spreed sheet. With the high res you can get so much more on the screen at one time. I gave it 4 stars and not less because the monitor is nice other than gaming first person. I think a...

Great color, easy menu, comes with drivers for windows, Very sturdy on the stand. Clean front unit

Not as good for gaming, Little lag on high graphics with first person games. When I start my system my icons reset to upper left side of screen

Not Disappointed


Google "Big Buck Bunny 4k" to get a torrent download link for a short animated film in native 4k resolution @60fps. I used VLC to play the file. It is absolutely stunning. To people complaining about the power button. The behavior of the power light...

Everything is so clear. You have never seen text so clear... nor tiny. You will need to increase the font size in your OS unless you have the vision of a hawk and/or sit less than 3 feet from the monitor ; Comics look amazing on this monitor. Anything...

No VESA mount and a wobbly stand, as everyone has said ; I've noticed screen tearing in some games even when using vsync which was not an issue on my old monitor ; When watching Netflix through a browser, it looks absolutely terrible. This is most...

The future called, they want their monitor back.


Here's my $0.02 from a guy who just bought this monitor. I just got it last week so my time with it hasn't been extensive yet. Having said that, you will probably not have any problems with 4K with your graphic card if it's a fairly modern mid-high...

Beautiful large monitor, crisp colors and excellent overall image quality. Much has been said about the poor monitor stand but I don't really have a problem with it. It sits stationary on a relatively sturdy desk

It doesn't make me breakfast in the morning

Great monitor and great deal


worked instantly and perfectly right out of the box on both my Windows Vaio 13" laptop via HDMI and my Macbook Pro via DisplayPort, both a full 4K resolution. No adjustment or fiddling needed for either. Impressive number of pixels for my use in...

4K, 28" with both HDMI and DisplayPort for a remarkably low price

Disappointing stand for a monitor of this caliber. No adjustment, let along pivot/rotate

Great Deal


I had it ordered and delivered from MNW Global. Delivery was fast and packaging was simple but robust and adequate. -stand is not that bad - manual is on CD, throw away Korean printings - after connected to a PC it is easy to change the menu language...

4k resolution ; great picture quality ; good design ; low price ; no problems

Cheap but you need whaaa...


The option to wall mount would have been nice. A quicker option to turn off the monitor because it goes to "stand by" mode so quick I don't have enough time to shut it off. I would need to wait 5 seconds for it to come off stand by and then choose off.

Beautiful screen and modern design with a nice price ; It supports lower resolutions

A little shake of the desk and it wobbles. When it comes to reviewing products I can be pretty violent so my monitor shakes a bit ; Nvidia says I need an SLI 780 or 780Ti rig to play ultra settings on 4K monitors. Let me just pull $1,000.00 out of the...

Good Product, but 4k Has a Ways to Go...


Very solid monitor. Has very vibrant colors for a TFT, and very good response times for gaming. 4K looks absolutely amazing. No dead pixels

I have XFX 290xs in Crossfire, and there are just too many issues with 4k for me to stomach. Scaling of text/graphic size in Windows is awful, and it is a huge pain getting things to look even remotely consistent. Likewise, various games have issues...

Simply not working



The unit powered up (the indicator LED blinked) but the screen stayed black. The monitor was tried on two identical, separate systems (Dell M6500 with AMD FirePro M7820 video card) that are known to support 4K resolution and currently drive another 4K...

Clear as can be.


Stand and screen saver issues aside this is a great leap in screen resolution technology. For me it reminds me of going from my TRS80 Model 1 monitor to my first 19" LCD screen, just a huge jump. You have to use the Display port to get full resolution...

3840 x 2160 resolution, I mean you can see everything so clearly without any pixilation. Characters on the screen are crisp and bright, pictures blow you away, and fast action video is smooth with no jumping or smearing. Price 599.00 is a great deal

Here is were the one star comes off. Because it doesn't have a vesa mount on the back doesn't give Samsung a pass on making a cheap stand. The monitor is now 45 days old and if you bump the sides it wobbles like a weeble. Not cool for any monitor....

Great picture, poor build


You are lucky to even get two stars out of this. the only reason I gave it two stars was because of the superb resolution.

This monitor has great resolution and color. It required very little adjustments out of the box and runs like a champ

MY POWER BUTTON DOESN'T TURN IT ON, ONLY OFF. the stand is a bit flimsy but fine since I normally do not move the monitor around that much. However, since the button does not work properly (only two days old), I have to plug and un plug the monitor
