Consumer review (newegg.com)

NOT FOR PC GAMING

 

Maybe I should've just listened to my instinct and bought an actual "gaming monitor" with a 144hz refresh rate like I initially wanted to, for anyone who wants to choose size over quality, just learn to deal with a smaller size..

the color/ display is beautiful, overall light weight, a lot of inputs

Note: I am giving this 2 stars SOLELY because it did not act as a proper PC monitor at all. I was informed this particular model included a gaming mode (that supposedly pushed a standard 60hz setting). Upon receiving this I tried it in 4k mode...

Now RMA'd

 

I switched gears entirely to the ROC 278. Now that is a monitor with a few compromises too - but rather than a low feature TV, I'm getting a well reviewed display whose compromises are summed up in two letters: TN. Easy to understand. Learning about...

Final Update : I am sending the TV back after learning the Samsung 6000/7000 series cannot push 4:4:4 color to the panel, despite receiving the appropriate signal. This is apparently not a software problem, but an intentional limitation within the TV....

Compressed color leads to artifacts, unreadable text, problems in graphics / CAD, etc. Is it unacceptable? Depends who you ask. This TV is neither a high markup flagship nor a meat-and-potatoes 50"+, so Samsung wrung some more margin out of the 6/7000...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Value, good PC monitor **@60HZ**

 

4:4:4 color @ 4K 60Hz is possible, with an appropriate video card and knowledge of the TV settings. You must enable "UHD Color" and utilize a HDMI 2.0 cable to maximize the potential of this TV. This is not a hardcore "PC Display!" 60Hz max is...

Light, thin bezel and great picture. Sharp, great contrast and saturated colors. Watching 4K videos for the first time is awesome! Power-on is snappy, maybe 3 seconds ; Good settings menus, "Wii style" remote and fully defeatable video processing. I...

I don't use it as a TV, it's connected to a PC. The SmartTV ad-injection stuff is a farce, but won't be an issue for me ; Average speakers, but who uses those anyway

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not bad

 

I got on sale for 600$ worth every penny, $900 seems a little steep..

beautiful screen, 4k content is amazing. 4k gaming is great

HDMI ports can be tricky, had issue connecting to a PC using an EVGA 980, ended up taking the 980 back and getting two 970's

Consumer review (tigerdirect.com)

4K is a must have

 

I'm still amaze at the quality of the display. Even HD movies that are 1080p look much better on this screen. The price makes this hard to beat as well. The software isn't perfect, however. I can't seem to get screen mirroring to work and the wifi may...
