Summary: This display is beautiful when it works. However, intermittently, and for no identifiable reason, artifacts would come and go on the desktop and in text heavy documents and web pages. Tried this display on two different computers (one using integrated Intel HD4600 and the other a high end nVidia graphics card), using both display port and DVI at full native 2560x1440 resolution/60Hz. Swapped out several cables to make sure it wasn't cable related.
Summary: To keep it brief, the five star reviews here are spot on in regards to the color. Pop in any Pixar movie on Bluray: Absolutely gorgeous. However, the monitor I bought came with a stuck green pixel near the center and many specs of dust behind the glass near the top. Returned it for a replacement. Received the replacement and right out of the box I immediately spotted 6 dead pixels in the center. Returned this one for a refund.
Summary: The monitor arrived nicely packaged. The outside packaging was not damaged and the inside packaging was very sturdy. When I opened it and set it up everything was looking good. Then I turned on my computer and half of the monitors screen was red. I already had a previous monitor hooked up (as I was upgrading) so I knew it wasn't my video card or computer itself. I tried to adjust settings, but nothing made it better. Ultimately I returned the product.
Beautiful colors, but uneven back lighting and back light bleed ruin the overall experience
2 February 2013
Summary: I want to start with thanking the awesome customer service of Amazon - I've had very few returns and exchanges over the years, and they've always been quick to respond and hassle-free to deal with, including with this monitor. The upshot of my review is that the back light bleed is so bad and uneven that I'm exchanging it for what I hope is an improved unit. But more on that later. Let's start with more positive attributes of the monitor.
Summary: Superbe ecran, tres design...Mais defectueux des le deballage, parti 1 mois en réparation et au retour de la reparation, un coup sur la dalle...Il doit donc encore repartir en reparation. Vu le prix de cet écran, je m'attendais a beaucoup mieux. La prise en charge des reparation est bien organisee mais Samsung et surtout le vendeur aurait du me proposer un echange directement plutôt que de systematiquement devoir passer par un centre de reparation...
Summary: Rien à redire sur la définition,c'est top par contre défaut sur la partie droite de l'écran, lorsque l'image est noir il y a une fuite de lumière qui provenait de la rangée de LED qui éclairait le devant de la dalle ou lieu de l'arrière !!! J'ai demandé à Samsung il y a 8 jours un échange sur site puisque c'est compris dans la garantie, depuis j’attends qu'il me recontacte en fonction de leur stock m'ont ils dit.
