    Amazing Monitor – Early Adopter Warning, April 18, 2014

    As this review is for the monitor I will give it the 5 stars it deserves. Yes, there is no Vesa mount capabilities, however, that is not a selling point for me. It may be for some buyers. The monitor itself has beautiful colors and a respectable refresh rate that pc gamers can take advantage of.

    My warning to early adopters is the following: The only way you are going to get a decent refresh rate of 60hz in games is with multiple video cards. For those of you out there with Nvidia SLI, be warned! Nvidia currently has NO SLI DRIVER support for the 4k resolution. To reiterate, this monitor WILL NOT display 4k in SLI as of right now and it will max out at 1440p. There is a very active Nvidia forum thread with users complaining of this very issue. Nvidia has issued a statement that they know what the fix is and will implement it in the next driver update. However, they did not give an ETA. So, as of right now, this monitor is basically useless for gaming until Nvidia releases the driver update.

    I also tested this monitor out on my Retina Macbook Pro. DO NOT buy a 4k monitor for your Macbook Pro until Apple releases 10.9.3 this fall. OS 10.9.2 (current version) does not scale well in 4k and looks absolutely terrible. Don’t bother just yet.

    *UPDATE* Nvidia driver update 337.61 does not fix the SLI issue with this monitor. The max resolution in SLI after installing 337.61 is still 1440p. Still waiting for a fix.

    *UPDATE 2* It has occurred to me that the way I worded my review makes it seem like this monitor does not work with SLI at all. If you use this monitor with HDMI it WILL work with SLI at 4k however it will not go above 30hz. The vast majority of people that purchase this monitor AND have multiple video cards will be using the DisplayPort connection. 30hz simply isn’t fast enough for gaming. Sorry for any confusion and I hope this clears everything up. I will update one last time when Nvidia releases the fix.

    *UPDATE 3* Some people have messaged me and said that their 780TI cards get the native resolution of this monitor while in SLI. I honestly don’t know why these cards work but others do not. The fact remains that there is something wrong and Nvidia has confirmed that the next driver update should resolve the issues that most users are experiencing. Purchase at your own risk until Nvidia releases this patch. Once again, I will update this review when these drivers are released and I have confirmed they do in fact resolve my issues.

    *FINAL UPDATE* Nvidia beta driver 337.88 came out today (5/26/14) and it resolves the issues I point out above.

    4.0 out of 5 stars
    With a better designed stand it would be a 5 star., March 28, 2015

    Nia (Oakland, CA) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I recently purchased this monitor to pair with my MacBook Pro(2015, 2.5ghz, with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M) for my home office setup. I’m a Graphic Designer so I mainly utilize programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I am not a “gamer” so that wasn’t an important decision in my purchasing this monitor. I mainly wanted a HD monitor that would render my artwork crisply and display general media at a high resolution. Also, I didn’t want to fork over a “gee” to purchase the Apple ThunderBolt monitor which I personally think is way overpriced for what it is. I work on two of those monitors at my job and have found that the glare off the glossy surface can be very aggravating at times.

    After doing a lot of online research I settled on the Samsung. I chose it for its display quality and also liked the physical design of the monitor. I purchased this cable to connect it to the laptop: Accell B143B-003J UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 Cable.

    Having done all the research before purchasing this monitor I was aware of the “wobbly” stand issue. I have found that it’s not a “deal breaker” for me. Although at this price it should be better designed. My monitor stand came slightly “skewed”. You can see in the photo it’s not lined up with the monitor(sorry for the bad phone pic). I spent a little time “bending” it to a more aligned position. Now the stand is basically plastic, but the piece on the monitor where the stand attaches is metal and I was able to bend it manually. Overall the display is very light and may require some additional support(velcro, etc.) to make it more stable.

    On to the thing that really matters, the display. It’s really good. Images are rendered beautifully and text, graphics, etc. are crisp. Videos streamed are high quality and definition. Honestly, it’s better than the much higher priced Apple offerings and best of all, no annoying glare. I have it set at the middle setting in the “display resolution scale” which is a happy medium for me personally.

    Overall, I’m very happy with the purchase and would prefer to have these at my work place over the Apple monitors also, but alas, that’s the company’s money to spend;) In conclusion, this monitor would be a 5 star if it had a better, more stable designed base and maybe offered a few USB ports in the mix.

    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Great for gaming (if you have the GPU power), May 8, 2014
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I gave this monitor 5 stars because I personally love it. I bought it to play PC games at 4k resolution and built my PC specifically for that. I’m currently running a pair of GTX 780 Ti’s which is more than enough to max out just about any game, ultra settings plus 2x aa depending on the game. There are definitely titles out there will exceed the 3GB memory on the GTX 780 or 780 Ti and I imagine that will only get worse as newer games are optimized for this resolution. If you’re looking at this monitor for gaming, I would suggest a 780 6GB (in SLI for optimal performance), R9 290X (crossfire for optimal performance 4GB), or if you need the compute performance a GTX Titan would suffice but is not necessary and overpriced for just gaming alone. I even tried the monitor with one single 780 Ti just for testing purposes and was able to set Skyrim at ultra settings, everything maxed and there wasn’t a single stutter, screen tear, and virtually no motion blur. That is impressive for me coming from a 120Hz panel.

    This monitor is simply a plug and play set up, the native resolution was instantly recognized along with 60Hz and that was the case for both a single card set up and SLI. I read some people had issues with SLI but I assure you it works perfectly fine, nothing needs to be manually adjusted aside from activating the SLI setting in the Nvidia control panel. The latest Nvidia drivers work great with 4k. Something to note if you haven’t done much research yet is that this monitor will not give you 60Hz with HDMI, you will only get 30Hz, for now anyway. I picked up a displayport 1.2 cable from Amazon as well just to make sure I had the proper compatibility to get 60Hz. The monitor does come with a DP cable but I wasn’t sure of the version and didn’t want to risk anything. The cable was only $12 and worth it to make sure I was using the right one. The monitor instantly detected the DP cable and set the input itself to reflect that (nice little feature I guess).

    I wish I could give more input on an AMD GPU set up but unfortunately, I don’t own any. I can however, tell you that Nvidia works beautifully with this monitor especially using SLI. Battlefield 4 for example; With all Ultra settings, 2x msaa and SSAO, I was consistently getting 70-90 frames per second and never dropped below 65. One single 780 Ti had playable framerates at Medium settings, no aa and SSAO with between 50-70 fps which is still not bad considering the resolution. And that was on multiplayer which I felt was the best place to test the frames instead of boasting about ridiculously high frames in the campaign. Another example like Skyrim; i was able to completely max out this game at 2160p with a single card. BF4 really is the game that beats up your GPU at this resolution, no matter what you have. With everything maxed out it did introduce a very small amount of screen tearing and it does, expectedly, take a few seconds for the textures to load when you first fire up a match.

    on to the OSD… It is placed oddly on this monitor but I personally don’t care because I make most of those adjustments in the Nvidia control panel. It is located on the back of the monitor towards the bottom right hand corner. It is very easy to reach your hand around back and make adjustments as needed but some may find this slightly complicated and weird. It’s also a small joystick which is OK, but that could have been done a lot better. Plenty of adjustments to make, like the usual brightness, contrast, & sharpness. There is an option to adjust the refresh rate which is a generic setting like fast, faster, fastest. Fastest introduced a small amount of ghosting and the monitor was defaulted to faster (which I believe is the native 1ms) and I left it that way because there is miminal motion blur in games and it works perfect for me. There is a game mode setting which cranks up the brightness and contrast eliminating the washed out black areas of games that are mostly seen on TN panels, but in general I didn’t care for it. There’s also a contrast setting that like game mode, overrides all other setttings and gives you the option of dynamic contrast which some may like for looking at photographs. Not for me though. there’s really not much else in the OSD that I messed around with or found necessary to play with.

    It is a TN panel, but is a new TN panel that offers much better color reproduction, better viewing angles, and less color shifting than previous panels. Again, I only play games on this monitor so I absolutely don’t care if it is TN or IPS. I actually prefer TN because they are faster, cheaper and my sight will never be good enough to care about the differences. There is zero adjustability on this monitor, meaning you can’t tilt, swivel, or pivot this display. For me, I can’t take away a star for this because I simply don’t care and never need any of these features. There are many people that…
