Excerpt: If you sit close to screen, you will note this is a TN panel. I really hope samsung can put an IPS panel into this monitor at this price. Wait, and why not put a small speaker into this monitor? Other than these, the picture quality is pretty decent.
Excerpt: Nice Monitor so far , but don't think your going actually see any text when running windows @ 3840 resolution. The text you can't read , it missing half the text. The pictures are beautiful, My solution was set resolution to 2560 and set your text to about 113 per cent and it's great. The picture was so small at 3840 RES you could not read anything. Haven't tried the PIP yet , you see I have 2 monitors set up. Even @ 2560 Res it's still a great picture.
I tried readjusting the settings multiple times but It still looked dull. The colors are not vivid and playing games ...

Summary: After doing some research on monitors, I thought this would monitor would them all. After connecting the monitor, I noticed the colors seemed off, I tried readjusting the settings multiple times but It still looked dull. The colors are not vivid and playing games on this monitor isn't as amazing as it thought it was going to be. When trying to watch 4K videos on YouTube the monitor constantly flickers and resets.
When is a square not a square? When it's on this display!

Summary: This looks like a nice display, until you realize that the pixels aren't square! By physical measurement (i.e. draw a square in Photoshop, measure it on screen with a physical ruler), the height and width do not match. A square that measured 16.2 cm wide was only 15.7 cm tall. That's a 3% difference. It's noticeable everywhere, but you get used to it, until you look at a proper display and go back again.
Works great on the right hardware! Overall... quite satisfied.
its pretty meh..., Amazon

Summary: I first received this monitor and plugged it into my 2010 macbook pro over HDMI and was limited to 1080p and 30hz. The image quality was actually slightly worse than my previous 28" Dell Full HD monitor. So I was bummed at first. There seemed to be no "upscaling" going on at all. Then I got an upgraded Macbook Pro (late 2013) which could properly handle the 4k resolution and refresh rate (over Display Port). Much better!
Summary: Great screen, great deal, great look. Used with my Macbook Pro Retina late 2013 13''. Achieved the 4K 30hz easily with HDMI. 4K 60hz is hard to get, I finally achieved 4K 52hz using the DisplayPort connection with the help of a software named SwitchResX
Summary: This sits nicely next to my MacBook Pro (which usually runs Windows 8.1). I dialed the resolution back slightly so I could read easier, but it shows full resolution clearly. Bear in mind when you get a high-pixel monitor, sometimes some of the interfaces don't show full resolution on HDMI. This one does. Highly recommended.
Summary: It took me a couple of days of tinkering with this monitor and my Video Card settings to figure out how to get it running to its full potential. Running this monitor using a Sapphire R9 290X 4GB Video Card with the reference cooler. I originally was getting very poor graphics performance when running any game using this monitor at max resolution.
Summary: I had been seriously considering buying the IMac 27" Retina desktop machine since its announcement but decided to give this monitor - hooked up to my 2013 MacBook Retina - a try instead. It's only been twenty-four hours but so far this monitor has exceeded my expectations and I've saved a couple of thousand dollars.
Summary: I don't have time to leave a long review but PLEASE READ. All the posts about bad color, etc are people who have unreasonable expectations. For the price, this thing is amazing. No your not going to get high end IPS level color representation, but for games and general use, it's great. The stand does adjust a bit, and it's fine. I'd rather not have to pay more because it has some fancy stand.
