Decent 4k monitor, hate TN panel

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great picture quality
  • Cons: Lacks Adjustability

Works great on the right hardware! Overall... quite satisfied.

its pretty meh..., Amazon
14 November 2014
  • 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!

Great screen, great deal

  • 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

BGR pixel geometry - Windows users should try ClearType tuning

  • Summary: Using this with a Lenovo T430 via minidisplayport to displayport cable (not included - if your laptop uses minidisplayport/thunderbolt you need to get the adapter cable separately). Custom resolution in Intel graphics settings (3840x2160, 32bpp, 30Hz, timing "GTF") Only 30Hz but that's the Thinkpad's fault for being an elderly 2-year-old.

Expect Thunderbolt Display Resolution with Macbook Pro

Akira, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Setup: 2013 Macbook Pro Retina + Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 Cable (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A7R9I22/) + Samsung 28-Inch UHD LED Monitor. OS X currently outputs this slightly below default display resolution. You basically get the same resolution that a Thunderbolt Display would show (2560 x 1440). This may be the only way that 60hz works with the internal graphics card (I have the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M).

Fantastic with Macbook Pro 15" Retina! Full 4K @60Hz using DisplayPort. AWFUL stand.

Watershed, Amazon

  • Summary: I think early reviews were tainted by poor device driver support. With Mac OSX 10.9.3/4 on a Macbook Pro 15" Retina I get full 4K @60Hz using DisplayPort. I scale it down one notch (3008x1692) - it looks amazing and I can read all text well, younger eyes might opt for 3840x2160. I use it for writing code, Power Point/Keynote presentations, writing documentation and the occasional use of Photoshop.

Great 4k monitor with a few adjustments for gaming

  • Summary: I do not normally write reviews but I want to share an important tip that are key to being more satisfied with your samsung monitor as far as gaming goes. I was originally opted to purchasing the Asus PB287Q 4k Monitor but with all the problems it was having, I didn't want to take the chance.

Works great but wish it had a display port out so ...

  • Summary: Works great but wish it had a display port out so I can chain my screens. I use it for software development. The ability to have multiple code files open side by side with my debug info below it is priceless.

Great monitor, mac needs to pick up the slack

travis, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: Great bang for your buck. Has some strange colors at odd viewing angles, but all in all a great monitor. I use it with a Mac Pro 2013 with dual d700. There is a slight screen tearing issue on the right side when using the monitors with displayport. This is a mac driver issue as the monitor works great with my windows boot camp. Apple claims that this will be fixed in future updates.

  • Summary: Overall..I love this monitor..but I hate the cable that came with it :)
  • Pros: Great image ! The TN panel is very good and the image is crisp. You need to set the response to "Faster" and not "Fastest". Gaming in 4K is bliss (with a R9 295x2). I won't be able to game in any other resolution under 4k, it's just that good ! Most all reviews complain about the stand for this monitor. If your like me, I actually find it's one of the best: just plain simple, works, nice design, minimal. I don't ever ajust the height or tilt of my screen once set. It'...
  • Cons: The huge con of this monitor is not the monitor itself but the darn DisplayPort cable that comes with it. Word of advice: throw the cable in the garbage and buy a Startech or whatever DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort cable. I got the Startech one for 14$ and it solved all my issues. With the cable in the box...if your lucky like me..I had several screen flickering and tearing happening every 2-3 minutes..it was really annoying. I was about to return this monitor when I...
