Great price, great performance

Summary: I would definitely buy again. Playing modern games at 4k with ultra settings is a face melting experience. Console gamers don't know what they're missing.... (even if it is super expensive for high end gaming)
Pros: Price, when I bought this it was (maybe still is) on sale for 550. For what you're getting, that is an absolute steal. It's full 4k, none of that somewhere-between-1080p-and-2160p stuff. There is not a single dead or bright pixel. Even if there was, it would be exceedingly hard to tell since the ...
Cons: I wouldn't call this a con, but i would love it if the refresh rate was higher than 60hz, but with this generation of graphics cards, most games are going to top out around 60fps anyway. Unless you have some high end cards in SLI or Crossfire... but not all games support those, and not all that d...
Pros: I cannot start to explain to you how amazing gaming on 4k is... but let me try. After playing Arma 3, Farcry 4, Shadow of Mordor, Crysis 3, Metro: Last Light, and Tomb Raider all in 4k there is only one word that comes to mind. BEAUTIFUL! it is ridiculous how amazing the difference is going from ...
Cons: now as you can see I still gave this a 5 egg rating, however there are a few things that happen that I just get past. The blacks aren't as black as my other monitors (2x asus 27' 1080p) and when you have a dark scene, which happens a lot in games, there is a bit of light leaking up into the darkn...
Decent 4K monitor at decent price, and takes a strong GPU to drive

Summary: So, I'm seeing a lot of misinformed reviews and questions about this Samsung units (and other 4K monitors). If you have even the slightest doubt about your hardware not being powerful enough to drive 8.3 megapixels at 60Hz, it's probably not powerful enough.
Summary: I too noticed the mouse ghosting some other reviews mentioned. Switching the response time from Fastest to Faster solved this issue completely. I will soon be purchasing a second one. If you plan to game at 4K, you should consider a higher end SLI/Crossfire setup.
Pros: Excellent sharpness and color. Price! Text looks pretty awesome.
Cons: Some backlight bleed-through is noticeable when screen is very dark/black.
Summary: While 16x9 has become a standard, 16x10 is so much better for business and use other than games and movies. That is the only real disappointment with this Samsung monitor. The early large samsung monitor panels were 1920x1200 - this one should be 3840x2400!
Pros: Perhaps I was a bit harsh in the previous review. Monitor is quite nice at both: 3840x2160 60 Hz attached to an AMD Firepro w2100k, and 2560x1440 60 Hz as an extended desktop on a Lenovo T530. Would probably recommend this over an IPS QHD monitor if price was close even for a QHD non-4K video car...
Cons: Backlight is a bit uneven depending upon angle of view on the TN panel but no real complaint. Works fine for one or two people but likely would loose brightness to most of a crowd gathered around the screen. Samsung setup firmware setup includes a strange angle of view adjustment which I did not ...
Summary: If you're looking to get a 4k monitor, this is the one and this is the price point. They probably won't get much cheaper than this for a long time.
Pros: Great value for the price paid. Excellent clarity, great picture, can't say enough.
Cons: Doesn't support any higher refresh rate than 60 Hz. I don't think there are any 4k monitors out there that do support this yet, and if this one weren't so inexpensive, I would have waited (that could be years though.)
